My husband and I stayed at the Jackson House Inn for our one year anniversary in May and have already booked our return for September. Rick and Kathy made our trip truly magical. They are extraordinary individuals who have created such an extraordinary place.
They welcomed us, gauged who we are and from there helped us to plan local activities (boating, hiking, arts, scenic drives, eating) unique to our interests, and wonderful adventures that we would not have found on our own. We explored and adventured, taking their recommendations, and quickly fell in love with the area.
We began each day walking up through the hills and trees, along the brooks and roads behind the house. We were there as the leaves emerged from the buds of the trees covering the mountains. When we returned to the house for breakfast we sat in the beautiful dining room and looked through the walls of windows at the mountains and beauty surrounding the house.
And as we sat, we enjoyed and luxuriated in the BEST food we have ever eaten in a b and b, and indeed some of the best food we have ever eaten at all. It was so nourishing, full of flavor and texture, an experience of food that was so unique. Rick kept telling us that one of the things that is so special about Vermont is the love that people bring to their work. This was the case again and again at the Jackson House Inn. I was reminded of one of my favorite books, "Like Water for Chocolate" in which the food magically takes on the emotions and intention of the chef. It was as though we could taste the care within the food.
We came as guests and left as friends. We are so looking forward to our return as the leaves again transform on the trees.
Thank you thank you thank you, Kathy and Rick!
