Interaction with Guests
Not much, if it's a weekday (i.e., a school day), though I always leave breakfast out before I head to school.
On weekends, I'll interact as much as folks seem to want to. No matter what day of the week, I love to offer suggestions as to what to explore in the area, depending on guests' interests.
Guests are free to come and go as they please and are asked just to turn the lights out when they leave a room.
Annie made me feel very welcome. The room was perfect for our one night stay passing through southern Vermont. She had breakfast ready for us with fresh blueberries, yogurt, maple syrup and bread. Coffee and tea were also wonderful.
This is, what we've got: Peace and quiet; a warm welcome, two clean rooms & a bathroom for our own, a big Terrasse and a fabulous, healthy and delicious breakfast; And a good advice, where to go for the Dinner;
and inspired conversations with a very interesting women.
Thank you, Annie!
My stay with Annie was just delightful! And it made all the difference that I could bring my pup, Phoebe. I stayed in the suite for two nights which was very nice and private. I was there for a solo getaway to get in some writing and her home was the perfect spot for just that. (Only wished I could have stayed a week longer.) I spent most of my time on the porch where you can hear the river from right across the street. Phoebe and I took some early morning walks on these beautiful country roads (which Annie mapped out for us) and when we got back she cooked a yummy hearty breakfast. There's also lots of great hiking to be had close by( putney mountain, townshead park, long trail is not far off and for some local groceries dutton berry farm, yum!) I would definitely be back to stay in Newfane, it was a total treat!
My wife and I stayed at Annie's house on our way into NY state and we would definitely stay again. This was a unique and cozy spot to stay. Annie made us feel very welcomed and at ease, both when we arrived, around the house, and in the morning. We had our own room and adjoining bathroom, but had full access to other first floor rooms and an amazing front porch. In the morning, Annie offered a home cooked meal of eggs and sausage as well as home made granola, toast, and cereal at whatever time we asked her. The coffee was good! She was very kind and thoughtful. This farmhouse has character and is just a short walk from a hip little eatery and swimming hole - bring your suits!
Despite the fact that I've just stayed one night at Annie's place, it was a very nice experience! I arrived a bit later than planned, but this wasn't a problem. If you are looking for peace and quiet, you should definitely stay here. The rooms are cozy, clean and spacious. Annie is a very pleasant host who makes an excellent breakfast.
Annie is an amazing host and the accommodations were perfect. The home was easy to find and surrounded by beautiful scenery, hiking trails, swimming holes and quaint towns. My dog enjoyed the yard while I worked on the porch after breakfast. Annie's family was also visiting and we all enjoy breakfast together out on the porch. I slept well after viewing the amazing night sky. I'm booking my next trip after writing this review.
Annie, thank you for a lovely stay.
Annie was a wonderful host despite our late arrival and early departure! The house was super welcoming and comfortable and I really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back! :)
