Interaction with Guests
I love greeting and chatting with guests. Please let me know if you would like to know about the history of the place, where to shop for antiques or where the nearest ski areas are.
If you prefer more privacy, or less contact, just let me know.
Usually I will serve you breakfast family style with everyone in the house at the same table. If you prefer to eat alone, just let me know. I want your stay to be just they way you envision it. Breakfast is served according to your schedule whether early bird or late sleeper.
At times I may need to be away or leave early in the morning. In this case, breakfast will be self-serve but will still consist of a delicious breakfast with hot, homemade food, coffee or tea and seasonal fruits and juices.
Stroll the country roads past cows and horses or climb the hill to the sheep farm.

We (all six of us) loved the rural farmhouse setting. The accommodations were heavenly (slept VERY well!), breakfast and snacks elegantly prepared and so yummy. Grateful that you were attentive to special diets and allergies. Your kitty Tsunami was so fun to have greet us and make us feel at home. Verne brought good information and conversation as well. And we had great fellow vacationers! Learned more about Kentucky as well as yurts and farming from Liz. Fun to be able to bring home jam, etc. (souvenirs). Didn't want to leave! Now we know why Ben enjoyed his three years at VLS. Hope to meet you next time - congrats on YOUR graduates, Evelyn!
This was our second stay at Evelyn's. Evelyn is a consistently warm, dynamic, and welcoming host and we would not miss a chance to stay at her lovely farmhouse in the future.
The house is tastefully decorated and very clean. It has a soothing view and is surrounded by nature. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, with fresh linens, towels and water at our disposal. Evelyn made us feel at home by accommodating our special diet needs. We had the pleasure of observing beautiful Vermont birds picking at sunflower seeds in front of the window while enjoying a delicious, home made breakfast. Although the weather was too cold to enjoy the deck this time, the house is very comfortable inside.
We highly recommend Evelyn's B&B.
Had a really good time at Evelyn's B&B. She is a very welcoming person, who is eager to talk to visitors and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The old house is beautiful, with cozy fire place in the living room. Royalton, and especially South Royalton, are pretty villages, in which one can relax very easily. Breakfast, with quiches baked by Evelyn herself, is also worth mentioning. Definitely recommend staying here!
Very much enjoyed our stay and Evelyn's company! Evelyn wasn't there when we arrived, but she called in advance to make sure we were all set before we got there. The views around the house are lovely. There was another guest there who was very pleasant and interesting as well. The quiche for breakfast was delicious. Coffee / tea was also made available. Would have liked other options like bread to taste Evelyn's jam though. We picked up a pie to go home with us, and we've been devouring it, very yummy!
We loved our experience at Royalton B & B. From the moment we arrived to the warm smell of fresh baked goods, our entire stay was a comfort with the warm energy of the house and Evelyn. It was clean, inviting, relaxing, and beautiful. Even the other people there were a delight and we have come away with friendships. South Royalton is a wonderful place to go and Royalton B & B is the place to stay.
Had a nice weekend at Evelyn's place. The house and views from the porch are very charming and lovely and she was very accommodating to my family. Her homemade jams are pretty tasty too.
The farm house B and B was a lovely place to spend a night. The warm weather meant that we could enjoy the porch and the beautiful view from it. It was nice to meet Evelyn and the breakfast she made was lovely. The place was a short drive from a few nice places to eat in South Royalton.
