“So restful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

My daughter and I spent one night on our way back to Boston after a busy couple of days in the Burlington/Shelburne area. The farm has a beautiful setting on a well-maintained dirt road and we loved our tour of the animals and gardens. Our room was comfortable and quiet with two twin beds. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast and a fire in the wood stove in the morning. I do recommend signing up (in advance) for dinner--it would be stressful to find the place after dark and a long ways to go out to a restaurant. For us, our stay was a great way to get off the highway for a while--we got off interstate 89 at exit 7 on our way to the farm and got back on at exit 2 the next day. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly for us.

We offer dinner to our B&B guests for the very reasons this guest stated. It allows our guests to arrive and settle in without having to, head back out to find a meal. We prepare all of our meals with locally sourced food. I do ask for advanced notice when requesting dinner.

I am so glad that our farm provided a restful stopover!

We had a lovely weekend visit to the Grand View Farm last month - everything was just right, from the perfect directions (thank goodness, since the GPS was far from accurate about the final dirt roads), to the dinner recommendations, to Kim's helpful and thoughtful suggestions on places to visit. As it turns out, it's a very good thing we were not able to cancel the rooms at the last minute. The living room and porch were perfect for our spinning and fiber preparations (supervised by the outdoors cats), after freshly prepared breakfasts with all sorts of goodies from the farm. The wood burning stove would be cosy if we came back for a winter getaway. We loved the antique, high beds, and saw the sheep from one bedroom window, bunny from another. The farm had one rabbit, two cats, three rams, four pigs, chickens, sheep, and one guard llama that we saw, in turn.

The bed and breakfast website was really helpful for ideas on places to try, throughout the weekend, and I found myself linking through to several sights we hadn't originally planned to visit but wanted to check out once we had extra time. Though this might change, we were able to get some ATT coverage and some Verizon reception at the farm, though Verizon seemed better as we drove around the region. The wi-fi wasn't completely working for me, but they shared the password and had lots of useful information and ideas of fiber friends we could try to contact for future workshops and spinning, felting, knitting classes. Be sure to see if Kim has any felted garments, toy fairies, magic wands, socks, yarn, or rugs for sale, made from fiber off the friendly sheep living at Grand View.

Together with our 2-year old daughter we spent 4 days at VT Grand View Farm and couldn't have been happier! The rooms are very tastefully furnished and the beautiful porch is just great to hang out and enjoy the peace and quiet (especially when the two cats are around : ) The Goodlings really treated us like family and we felt absolutely at home, not to mention the A+ breakfast!! Being able to be close to the lovely animals on the farm was just great and we and especially our daughter enjoyed every minute of it! We hope to be back in spring to admire the lambs ... Thanks again for a wonderful stay and being such a great host!

My family and I visited the farm the second week of July. I cannot express how perfect our stay was. My 12 year old son had a blast working the farm and even learned how to drive a John Deer. The living space was so homey with just the right amount of privacy. And my hats off to Kim for keeping the place emaculate. I dont think i've ever stayed at a place that was as clean and comfortable as my home. Thank you Goodling Family for this experiance - we can't wait to come back!!

We stayed at Vermont Grand View Farm B&B in early July while in Vermont to move our daughter to NECI culinary school in Montpelier. My husband and I with our two adult kids (24 and 21) thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay. First of all the farm itself is amazing with incredible views, animals and interesting history. Second, Kim and Chuck are delightful hosts - our breakfasts were delicious and carefully prepared, the home is very comfortable with every amenity carefully thought out, the tour of the farm and animals was fun and interesting and Kim shared her wool studio with us as well. Even though at first the drive from Montpelier seemed long, we appreciated it more every time we drove it - we saw beautiful sunsets, the wonderful rolling green mountains, rushing rivers and charming little villages/towns along the way. By the second day we were looking forward to our drive "home."

Kim was very helpful with ideas of what to explore in Vermont - and she has much information at the farm to share as well. Vermont is full of biking, hiking, farm markets, micro-breweries and fantastic restaurants! I highly recommend Vermont Grand View Farm as a centrally located, perfectly restful and comfortable place to stay for your next Vermont vacation. We sure hope to come back soon!

Our farm, centrally located within the state, allows you to visit many tourist attractions, wineries, breweries, hiking trails, bike path, and villages, and use our farm as your base. This family fully took advantage of what Vermont has to offer! We are more than happy to help our guests plan their day trips!

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Grand View Farm in June 2013. The rooms were cozy and clean and the hosts, Chuck and Kim, were very welcoming and gracious. We were given a tour of the sheep and chicken quarters and fell in love with the two barn cats, Moses and Aaron.
We would highly recommend this bed & breakfast particularly if you are looking for something off the beaten path.

Being "off the beaten path" is the beauty of Grand View Farm. Here, you will find rural Vermont farm life, with dirt roads, amazing sunsets, mountain views, and open fields.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Grand View Farm in March 2013. We were looking for a chance to relax and unwind, and to get to participate in "a day in the life" of Vermont farmers. Chuck and Kim were gracious hosts - letting us do everything with them from feeding the sheep herd and collecting sap buckets to setting up the greenhouse for this season's crop of vegetables.

The highlight of the trip, by far, was getting to participate in the birthing of a baby lamb. We communicated with Kim before we got to the farm that we wanted to be a part of farm life, and the experience did not disappoint. They were even kind enough to let us name the baby lamb, so look out for Harvey the next time you visit.

I'd recommend this experience for anyone looking to spend some time with wonderful people on a beautiful, Vermont farm. One note: if you are traveling to the farm in mud season (March & April, usually), make sure to drive a car with snow tires or four wheel drive. The backroads on the way to the farm can be slick at this time of year.

This couple could not have timed their visit any better! What a pleasure to share the birth of a new lamb with them! When booking your reservation, let us know in what way you would like to participate in "farm life" and we will do our best to help you have the experiences you were hoping for.

The roads can be tricky during "Mud Season" in Vermont, but it is by far, one of my most favorite times of year here. The hope of spring is in the air and spirits run high with the locals as sap flows, making the sugar makers happy, and baby animals fill barns, making the farmers happy! We do not have 4 wheel drive on our everyday vehicles and seldom need it, but front wheel drive is a must during winter and mud season. We always try to keep our spring guests informed of the road conditions and have even offered, though always are declined, to shuttled guests from town up to our farm.
