Guest Reviews

Perfect Vermont Retreat!

One never knows what to expect at the top of a windy dirt road. In Newfane, VT, however, one can expect a warm welcome to your new home away from home. One can expect to leave the cares of ordinary life at the electric fence; one can expect an amazing breakfast followed by a stellar massage; one can expect to head home feeling better than you did when you arrived.

Dave and Scott have carved out a little piece of heaven atop Newfane Hill. During my two-night stay, I indulged in Dave’s skill in the art of massage, and had more than a couple dips in the wood-fired hot tub. Breakfast was stellar each morning, with french toast one morning and waffles the next; the real maple syrup keep it feeling authentic! I was concerned that being on the younger side of the crowd would be awkward, but everyone was incredibly warm and I made a few new friends! Plus, Scott and Dave are so friendly, it’d be hard not to make new friends!

I stayed in the South Room; the room was spacious and comfy. My favorite place to hang out, besides the hot tub and in front of the fireplace, was on the day bed in the living room, napping while the rain fell on the skylights above. Perfect, you ask? Pretty much!

Rock River is only a few miles down the road, though I was tempted to just hang out at the B&B all day as the grounds are beautiful – I can’t wait to go back and explore all the hiking trails, and maybe some x-country skiing this winter!
