House & Garden Magazine

This  shingled barnhouse is furnished in a country contemporary style with its original hand-hewn beams, an open balcony overlooking the living room, and a wooden spiral staircase.

Our barnhouse is designed around the hand-hewn beams in their original placement from former barn days. One beam, however, which was once used for calf tethering, was moved to provide the balcony railing which overlooks our cathedral living room. The balcony features a hanging basket chair with skylight above . . . a cozy place to relax quietly or read your favorite book.

We have two country rooms:


The Water Garden Room

The Water Garden Room offers a queen-size bed handcrafted by the owner and a stenciled private bath.

The room opens on to a deck surrounded by pine and cedar trees. As you rest, you will hear the water trickling in our silo foundation water garden, the springtime peepers, and birds chirping. A friendly cardinal sings morning reveille and squirrels jump from tree to tree.

The Balcony Hayloft Suite

Our balcony suite features a queen-size bed and two twin beds, hand-hewn beams, sloping hayloft ceilings, handcrafted country curtains, quilt comforters, and wicker furniture.

A sitting area, writing nook, and a vanity provide extra comfort and ample room for four guests. 

A full country breakfast awaits you in our horseshoe & strawberry stenciled kitchen or in our spacious dining room. In pleasant weather you may dine outside on our deck. Enjoy maple syrup from our own sugar bush and jams made from our home-grown rhubarb. For those who wish, we offer lighter fare.  

Your comfort and health really matter to us... Relax and de-stress your life in Vermont's first and only Certified Wellness Bed & Breakfast. We extend to all of our guests a relaxing complimentary Magnetic Massage during their stay.

You'll find us in an eight-acre country setting south of Shelburne Village. We are just around the corner from the Shelburne Museum, the American Morgan Horse Association, Shelburne Farms, Lake Champlain, and Mt. Philo. 

We can recommend a wide variety of local restaurants and shops. Burlington, the University of Vermont, and several colleges are only six miles away. We offer close proximity to some of Vermont's best hiking, golfing, swimming and skiing areas.
