It doesn't matter the season, the Firefly experience is very rewarding! We felt "at home" right away. Our hostess, Issy, took us up to our large bedroom with such a fabulous view. Her breakfasts are delicious, fresh fruit etc. She was very accommodating and "entertaining". We could watch a big screen T.V. downstairs if we wanted to. We watched something on netflix instead. The white horse in Issy's meadow was fun to watch! We were close to Mt. Abe. We only climbed half way though! Loved the area, so much to see and do. We saw a bear who decided not to cross the road after all! Thank you, Issy, for a great time and good advice! Muriel and David, Waterloo. Ontario
My girlfriend and I stayed at Firefly B&B this past weekend. The location and views are majestic, nice getaway. Accommodations were very quant and down home. Issy is a great host, breakfast was a really nice touch. We will be back!
After 4 years of wanting to stay here, I finally booked the rustic cabin at Firefly B&B to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend. As soon as we pulled into the driveway, I was filled with joy at how adorable the cabin is. Issy, our innkeeper, greeted us warmly, made sure we had everything we needed, made a few recommendations, and gave us our space to explore. The cabin is very rustic: there is no bathroom or cable, all of which is clearly stated on the website. I knew all of this going in and we were totally fine with it. There are, however, DVDs and VHS tapes for the players, so feel free to bring some movies along. We also did not get cell service in the cabin, but when we went into Bristol (about a 10 min. ride) we had full service. It was not at all a nuisance to go into the main house to use the bathroom, and I enjoyed not having the distractions of cable TV and my cell phone. We were there to enjoy the charm of Vermont, and that we did. Bristol, Middlebury, and Burlington are all within close proximity to Issy's and are quaint, picturesque, small towns, with lots of charm. There are also several mountains close by for some challenging hikes (we did Mt. Abraham). Issy was such a kind and gracious hostess, and we couldn't have asked for a better, more enjoyable stay in Vermont.…
First time in years I've taken more than a week off at a time and to end the vacation my wife and I did the causeway cycle in Burlington and hiked Mount Abraham and had a perfect place to retreat to every evening. Bristol was a perfect place to supper at when needed. Thanks to a perfect hostess, Izzy!!
Actually I stayed there back in March 2013 but only just getting around to write the review I promised! I was skiing through on the Catamount trail, without transport other than walking to/from the trailhead and skiing. Issy helped me out - appreciated. The room had a shared toilet/bathroom with the other room on the same floor, but that's OK as long as you know about it.
