My husband and I had some frequent flyer miles and wanted to take a trip to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. We decided to go somewhere cold and snowy--very different from warm and humid Houston in January. I thought we were staying in your average hotel in the city, but he surprised me with this stay at The Yellow Farmhouse Inn, and we were not disappointed. In fact, it was more than either of us could ever have dreamed! We had a beautiful, spacious room (Catherine) with a jacuzzi tub and a gas fireplace and a roomy king-sized bed. The room itself was perfect enough, but with the view, it was amazing! We looked out over the road to a perfect snow-covered field, complete with red barn and pony with blanket. I'm serious when I say that it looked as though it came straight out of a Currier and Ives painting!!!
The innkeepers, Mike and Sandra, welcomed us into the inn as if they were welcoming us into their own home. Breakfast each morning was delightful--a true gourmet meal made of fresh local ingredients with an obvious touch of the heart. They were sincerely concerned that we have an enjoyable stay and a fun time in Vermont. Mike gave us restaurant recommendations and directed us to nearby attractions. They made us feel totally comfortable, as though we were their friends and not just paying guests!
I sincerely mean it when I write that this short vacation was like a dream. We were truly disappointed to leave, and as of right now I am suffering from a terrible case of Post-Vacation Blues, all because of our wonderful stay at The Yellow Farmhouse Inn.
My husband and I aren't usually the kind of travelers to go back to the same place twice, but we both agree that, should the opportunity arise, we will DEFINITELY be going back to the Yellow Farmhouse.
