Central Vermont offers lodging and hospitality right on the farm

Vermont is known for its resilient family farms, so it is natural that Central Vermont hotels, motels, and inns should also include a category for farm stays. Visitors to Central VT, which includes the towns of Killington, Montpelier, and Rutland, take rooms in the farm house and have a chance to observe the daily life of the farm. A great, back-to-the-land adventure for families with children.

Top priority at this Vermont inn: guests enjoying the everyday adventures of the farm

If you want a truly fulfilling farm experience, you have to stay at the Liberty Hill Farm & Inn, where you and your family can experience the everyday adventures of the farming life. Wake up to a hearty breakfast of eggs, pancakes and baked oatmeal, then explore the barn — the kids will want to see the hayloft, and maybe you want to take a crack at milking a cow or bottle-feeding a calf. There are meadows to stroll through, vegetables and berries to pick, followed by a bountiful family-style dinner (with luck, there will be chicken pot pie). Relax in your comfy room, a cozy nook or in a rocking chair on the farm porch. You’ll discover why there are so many return guests!
