Solar- and geothermal-powered inn welcomes visitors to its picturesque environment

In the Green Mountain State, they take “going green” seriously. That’s definitely the case at Wild Trails Farm, an inviting, scenic bed-and-breakfast inn in the heart of Vermont. The six-room inn uses solar and geothermal power and maintains its lush, sprawling lawns with electrical equipment. Being responsible to the environment makes this private retreat on more than 470 acres of meadows, orchards, gardens and ponds even more welcoming. Enjoy cozy, comfortable rooms with valley and meadow views, well-appointed common rooms (including a pool table), a continental breakfast and activities from bocce ball and volleyball to just relaxing in the sauna or hammock. Pick and enjoy eating fruit from the orchard or berry area or vegetables fresh from the garden.
