This place is a bit out of the way, but we were able to easily explore the Burlington and Montpelier areas from here. We stayed in the studio, which is a small one bedroom apartment above the garage/workshop. There is a small pond and a field with cows nearby. They also connect to a decent amount of hiking/cross country skiing... More

We have visited Winndekind Farm twice, once in the summer and once during the winter and both times the visit was lovely. Some highlights are the lovely , airy cottages,, the owners and their super friendly dog, Elsie,, the beautiful garden and berry patch and the nearby towns of Huntington and Richmond. I would write much more but who wants... More

I stayed at Windekind while skiing the length of the Catamount Trail. I was able to ski right to the door of my suite. While there I skied some of the groomed trails at Windekind and Camels Hump - nice views and fun skiing. Mark and Marijke were wonderful hosts, even inviting me to lunch with them. Mark picked me...

Congratulations Bob Because of your visit we were able to get a vivid impression of what it takes to make this trip and its rewards, which according to you Bob, had a lot to do with being alone with nature in some very wilderness settings. It was our delight to have you at Windekind as winter trail voyager. In a... More

Calling all yogis, mediators, x-country skiers and lovers of silence, beauty and vastness. Windekind Farm is all of that. What a gem we stumbled upon. All of their lodging options are unique and inviting. We spent 4 nights in the studio which was wonderful. We will be back very soon. Thank you Mark and Marlene.

This has to be the prettiest place on earth (mid Oct, fall foliage). The Campanula Cottage was very comfortable, charming, and quiet. A quick walk through the meadow and you are at the hiking trails (which are great). We could have talked with Mark all day long about his trains, the farm, etc. We cannot wait to go back! --...

How nice to be called the the "prettiest place on earth (mid Oct, fall foliage)." Well we think there are many "prettiest places on earth" that can match or exceed Windekind, but just to be included is an honor giving us plenty of incentive to keep right on trying to make Windekind as pretty as we can.

Throw in the spectacular view, the happy grazing cows and the lovely cottages and you end up with an amazing getaway.

Living in Vermont everyday, it's easy to get busy with daily life and forget to stop and take-in our state's beautiful vistas and serene surroundings. Fortunately, my husband and I took a day off for our 3rd anniversary and did just that - and beautiful Windekind Farms.
