The Inn at Valley Farms is a magical place - we stayed two nights while attending a wedding across the street at Alyson's Orchard and loved both the inn and the orchard. We stayed in the Bellow Cottage, which comfortably sleeps five people, and we felt at home right away.
Jackie is a wonderful host, and she brings a basket of eggs and baked goods to the door each morning - we then picked some veggies from the garden and cooked ourselves a true farm breakfast. (I think people staying in the main house get a traditional B&B breakfast with their room).
And the hike behind the farmhouse is beautiful, a perfect afternoon walk through the woods.
Our only complaint was that the Bellows Cottage felt a bit stuffy and musty - it just needed to be aired out a bit more often, nothing drastic and not oppressive or anything...
The town of Walpole is super cute too. Try Burdick's chocolates.
