A farm stay on your Vermont vacation is a fun family lodging adventure

Vermont is known for its resilient family farms, so it is natural that Vermont lodgings should also include a category for farm stays. This name means exactly what it says: visitors take rooms in the farm house and have a chance to observe the daily life of a VT farm -- a farm stay can resemble a stop at a bed and breakfast lodging. This is a fun family vacation for families with kids.

Immerse yourself in the daily life of a farm, from milking cows to picking veggies

You can visit a farm and pet the cows – or you can stay at a farm and milk the cows! At the Liberty Hill Farm & Inn, they’re known for so many things: unbelievably delicious home-cooked breakfasts and dinners, warm Rochester, VT hospitality, comfortable lodgings, and providing the kinds of experiences that keep visitors coming back every year. Try your hand at milking one of the Holsteins, bottle-feed a calf, cuddle with the barn’s kittens. Grab a basket and pick berries or veggies from the garden. Go swimming and fishing in the warm weather; in winter, bring your snowshoes or skis and take to its endless trails or build a snowman (come back inside for cocoa and cookies). At night, sit on the porch and watch the stars come out.
