  • Evelyn is a first-rate hostess. To begin with, she responded to our inquiries promptly, answering all of our questions and being thoughtful enough to inquire about our food preferences well before our visit. She greeted us upon our arrival with warmth and during out three-day stay, she shared the story of the 1840's farmhouse which has been in her family since it was built. In addition, her breakfast quiche was fantastic as well as the French toast. She was helpful but not intrusive. We give her an A+ and highly recommend her to folks who enjoy beautiful scenery, old houses, and good food.

  • Great weekend here. Evelyn was helpful and accommodating.
    Room was clean and large. Bathrooms were clean. Property is very pretty. There is a cat, and the cat is pretty great.
    We went there to go snowboarding in Killington, and the drive between house and slopes was a bit long, but nothing that we didn't expect. Just something to keep in mind.
    You will end up with at least 6 jars of pickles and jams by the end of your stay. You've been warned :)

  • Had a great stay while visiting the law school. Ms. Evelyn was a great hostess and the room was comfortable and charming. I especially enjoyed the quiche I had for breakfast and the companionship in the evening in front of the wood stove.

  • We loved this beautiful farmhouse and those cows. Evelyn is a great host and very welcoming; makes you feel at home away from home. She told us so much about her home and her family. Breakfast was great; homemade quiche and pie - yummy.
    Thanks for an unforgettable stay.

  • This farmhouse is amazing. If you are looking for a rustic, authentic Vermont experience, it is perfect. There are beautiful views (and cows) outside.

    The host, Evelyn, is extremely warm and friendly. She was very welcoming and told us a lot about the area and her home.

  • A remarkable, storybook place. A lovely experience. Evelyn is a delightful hostess, seeing to and anticipating our every need. We all want to go back soon. Royalton Vermont, a sweet little Vermont town that seems somehow apart from the corporatized world of the 21st century.

    Response from Evelyn:

    Thank you Jeffrey and your companions for becoming members of the family. I can hardly wait until you are able to return. Thanks also for the lesson in English Tea. Whenever you get the chance to come again the tea kettle will be on the boil.

  • For a real "Vermont" experience, stay at the Historic 1840's Royalton Farmhouse. Very clean rambling farmhouse appointed with period-appropriate furniture and fixtures. Fantastic view out over a bucolic field surrounded by hills. Village of Royalton not far away with just enough choice in good restaurants. Note shared bathrooms, but during our stay with full occupancy, no problems were encountered.
    Very gracious host serving great coffee and probably the best quiche in the state.

  • Thanks Evelyn for the great stay. Liked the homemade breakfast quiche and large room. Good long walk to Royalton to the magnificient Worthy Burger. Take a torch and jacket for the trip back if you go!

  • If you are reading reviews, you will note that many of her guests arrive at ungodly times at night. I was one of these and was warmly welcomed by Evelyn.

    We had breakfast together and chitchatted about the history of the house and life in this corner of the world. I told Evelyn I liked to do Sudoku to focus my mind and calm down before sleep. She upped the challenge by introducing me to cross-sums, and even GAVE ME her partially completed book!

    The other business in the house is supplying town markets with pies, pickles and quiches so this house truly has a kind, nurturing, folksy feel.

    Finally, I brought my Bernese Mountain Dog - who LOVED looking at the cows and going for scenic, hilly walks. But you'll definitely want to run by with Evelyn if you are bringing a pet and make sure you watch it closely.

  • Evelyn was so gracious and kind! The B&B was so comfortable and beautifully appointed. The bed was divine - so comfortable and the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful! Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed sampling some of Evelyn's homemade jams and of course the delicious bread!
