Our family had a terrific stay at Vermont Grand View Farm and we look forward to many more visits! As B&B owners we don't get away often but always look for a unique B&B experience when we do travel. We have 3 boys so often this is difficult because many B&Bs don't accommodate children. Vermont Grand View Farm is ideal for children. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the kitchenette is a fabulous bonus (as a mom of 3 we always travel with snacks and drinks), and there is plenty of room for the boys to run and explore. Our boys were thrilled immediately upon arrival to meet Tess (resident Border Collie) they had been missing our dog greatly and were excited to have some dog company. Tess is very accommodating in this department, she's a sweetheart who loves to play. We enjoyed all the animals and the serene beautiful soundings greatly. As a long time knitter I always enjoy being in the company of sheep and always find people who keep sheep to be amongst the nicest people I know. The Goodling family is no exception. Kim and Chuck, along with their children, are the perfect hosts. They are very knowledgeable about the area and were helpful in guiding us where to go. We went to a fantastic flea market in Chelsea and found many treasures to take home. Another highlight of our stay was a lovely picnic and outdoor Vermont Symphony Orchestra concert. Although there is much to do in the area I would have been very happy to have spent all my time on the front porch knitting and taking in the view. Breakfast on the porch was very special. We enjoyed delicious fresh eggs from their hens and homemade sausage, we also had waffles and yogurt with local berries. The maple syrup of course is home made, I would expect no less from a Vermont farm. If you are a fiber lover, I highly recommend the Goodling's farm raised yarns from their flock of Romney sheep. Knitted items are alway more special to me when I know the sheep and the people who raise them. When I knit with Vermont Grand View Farm yarns I will aways think of the beautiful hillside spotted with happy sheep. I was thrilled when our eldest son chose a college in nearby Randolph VT. I look forward to visiting him often and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere other than Vermont Grand View Farm.
