Emily Jackson’s serene country home in the heart of Vermont offers a gem of a place to stay. From the fantastic location in the heart of ski country to the stunning views of verdant pastures and grand mountains from every window, Emily’s home feels like the vacation home you’ve been coming to for years. Add to the equation her home-made, scrumptious breakfasts (which saw us through until dinner) and her warm, easy-going nature; and you come up with a five-star rating. We prepared dinner both evenings in her well-stocked cook’s kitchen and enjoyed a generous harvest of veggies shared from her garden. On our way to play golf we stopped by Cider Days, the big event happening in town. It was a cool way to experience the “real Vermont!” Time spent back at the house learning about gardening, composting, hosting folks and living with simple extravagance was a gratifying surprise for both of us. Emily shared her master gardener knowledge from years of living this (website hidden). Holly will be our first choice for future stays in the Okemo, Vermont area. Life smiles and laughs in this lovely home…
To stay at Emily's B&B is a wonderful experience. She is warm & welcoming and generous with her helpfulness and time. The location was ideal for a 'Vermont Visit', breakfast was excellent and varied, the room clean & comfortable, the bathroom perfect and overall it represented excellent value for money. I can highly recommend a visit to this 'home away from home'. Did I mention the view? Fabulous!!
Emily's home is beautiful with great grounds and view. The bed was very comfortable. She is warm and helpful. She made me delicious gluten free apricot muffins for breakfast, yum.
If I am ever in her area again I will return to her home.
We had a short but great time with Emily. Her house is just fantastic, the room and bathroom are large, neat and cosy and the view on the garden and the landscape further is wonderful. She welcomed us like friends and as soon as we arrived we felt at home. Emily is a very interesting woman, curious about everything, she even woke up in the middle of the night to watch falling stars!
My first impressions were of the flowering plants that surround the house. Emily showed me the room and I was impressed by the neatness and cleanliness. I was very pleased. I had to rush out to attend a wedding rehearsal dinner; however, I had more time the next morning to enjoy breakfast with Emily -- farm fresh eggs, homemade bread, and a view of the far hills. Chipmunks busily gathered sunflower seeds placed on the porch railing and challenged each other to dive into the flowering bushes. Quite a breakfast. That evening, when I returned after the wedding, Emily served Ben and Jerry’s vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries. I’d recommend this Vermont retreat.
Emily went out of her way to make our visit a memorable one. We called her from the grocery store in town where we were buying a chicken to eat in our room. She said we could use her kitchen, dining room, and offered to fix vegetables from her garden to go with our chicken. The drive to Emily's home is gorgeous. She was waiting for us to help us park. She welcomed us warmly and showed us upstairs to our room. The views from our room were stunning. The bed was very comfortable. We went downstairs with some wine and cheese to share and Emily brought out homemade pesto. We sat in the living room and got to know one another. Later, Emily began stir frying vegetables for our dinner. We ate together and had enjoyable conversation. For dessert, Emily made an ice cream sundae with delicious liqueur. The next morning, after breakfast eggs (local, farm fresh chicken eggs of course) and toast and great coffee, Emily drove me to the next village to use the ATM. It was charming and I would have loved exploring more had there been time. But the highlight of our overnight stay was spending time with Emily. I highly recommend this Green Mountain B&B.
We had a great time! Breakfast was amazing! :)
We had a wonderful stay here this autumn, and found our hostess Emily to be delightful, full of great stories about the area, and a fantastic cook as well. The room and adjoining bath were clean and comfortable, and the home is in a gorgeous Vermont country setting. We also brought our dog, and she had a wonderful time as well!
Emily was the perfect host! We loved meeting her, sharing travel stories, and exploring her beautiful home and property. It was a wonderful - though too brief - visit, and we wish we had planned to stay longer. What a peaceful, natural retreat! We loved our sweet tomatoes she gave us for the road, too - delicious! We couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Vermont and all it's beauty. We'd love to go back and highly recommend her B&B!
Waking up in the morning and seeing chipmunks and hummingbirds on the terrace was really an experience for us. We liked the wonderful house with its spacious rooms and the large garden where you could sit in very much. Our host made us feel very 'at home' and we were glad that we could cook our own meal in the well equiped kitchen. We surely recommend this b&b to other persons.
