Hotels with Extras in Vermont

Vermonters love their longstanding dairy farms (you see the cow as a logo everywhere in the state), so it’s not a stretch for a real working family farm to do double duty as an inn. Yep, Vermont’s got that: inns on or very close to farms, where guests may visit the barn, watch or help with chores, bottle-feed a calf, pick vegetables or berries. Farms are in the river valleys between mountains, so mountain sports like hiking and fly-fishing are also close at head. Another benefit to a farm-based lodging is the breakfast. Food so fresh you feel invigorated for a day’s work – or play – at the farm.

Touches of romance, history and natural beauty make this inn a special place

Four Columns Inn is open! Availability is limited during the reopening period, so please call for up-to-date reservations. Also, visit our FAQ for our COVID policies & procedures.

There’s a bit of paradise to be found at the Four Columns Inn, perched on 138 lush acres in charming Newfane. Not every inn can boast a babbling brook in addition to pristine gardens. To get closer to nature’s beauty, set out on a hiking trail or stroll down a path. Or, ask in the summer about spa services by the pond. (A year-round spa and wellness center has been completely renovated inside and features a European-style steam shower.) The inn’s 16 rooms are individually appointed with fireplaces, original artwork, antiques and modern touches including pillow-top beds and Jacuzzi soaking tubs. The restaurant excels in true farm-to-table dining. And, pet-lovers note: The inn is dog-friendly.
