Jill Crowley owner/operator
Had a great time. Jill gave us some tips on stuff to do. The best was a back road from Hartland to Woodstock that was really lovely. The place is also very nice. Highly recommended!
My mother and I had an amazing stay with Jill.
It was the highlight of our adventure from California to Boston-Vermont-Montreal. I haven't stopped telling friends about the magical home, the llamas I wanted to steal after petting, and the farm that Jill brought us to visit. Jill was a delightful host and we wanted to spend more time with her and hear about her family, her home and her experiences in the area.
Jill has an eye for detail and we could definitely see that from the antiques she collects to the comfortable bedding, towels and even table place settings. We had a memorable breakfast of Jill's homemade granola, blueberry pancakes with boiled apple cider (which I'm now addicted to), and wild boar sausages.
I would love to return every fall and see the leaves change color and visit Jill. I hope that our paths do cross again!
We had a most delightful stay at the Sumner Mansion!! Jill was an excellent host. She was very welcoming and showed us around the grounds, and gave us some history regarding the mansion and its surroundings. The room was classically decorated, quiet, clean and inviting. It was a great experience all around and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in a most unique setting.
Jill could not have been a more wonderful host and her mansion is truly splendid. From the start Jill made us feel at home, our room was sumptuous and the wonderful breakfasts prepared by Jill and served in the elegant dining hall were a real treat. We would go out of our way next time to stay at Jill's again. Hartland is a short drive from Woodstock VT (great shopping and pretty town) and Hanover NH which is an historic university town and worth a visit.
Wow! We had to put up some overflow guests this past weekend and now we all wish we could have gone with them to Sumner Mansion. It was not only one of the most inexpensive places around, it was also one of the best places I have seen. The rooms were gigantic, clean and luxurious. Plus we all got invited to breakfast which was fresh with local foods including the maple sausages, eggs, and even the granola. Our only regret was that none of us had any children who needed a wedding venue because this would have been the place. Right off the highway but very private. We would definitely use them again.
