This Inn is going to change your life. I can't stop thinking about the powerful reality of farm-to-table living. The many awards and accolades this place continuously receives year after year speaks for itself. Let me tell you about our experience: We booked the Mustard Room and since Jackie had other rooms available, she upgraded us to stay in the Rose Room. Bonus. The bed was fit for a king and after a long drive we snoozed until the wee hours enjoying pure luxury. If only we could have spent more time exploring the rooms which were decorated with rich detail. Better yet...get outside and explore the grounds! Learn how to build your own compost, collect eggs, pick vegetables, play with the animals and so much more. Lola just comes out and gives lots of love :) The 3-course candlelight breakfast was delicious! On how many occasions have you enjoyed a beautiful flower with your meal as you chat with the cook about how many more blooms you should eat for a balanced meal? My first popover was steamy and tasty. Too bad I filled up on the complimentary cookies in the pantry that I couldn't eat more. But you know what? These cookies were the number one recipe in town. No, really. They won the local contest for best cookie.But the food really is incredible. All straight from the farm. All organic, all sustainable. The partnership with local farms and shops is inspiring. Jackie gave us great tips on things to do in town. You really need to stay here and taken an apprenticeship on sustainable farming. I also find myself wondering how much Coco and Lola have grown (friendliest goats in the world). Turns out the Inn really did change my life.

When we got to the Valley Farm Jackie (Innkeeper) greeted us and showed us were to park (right in front of our cottage). Jackie got a sled for our 2 1/2 year old boy and he enjoyed sliding down a small hill of snow. Then Jackie showed us the inside of the cottage and told us where everything was located. She got a baby gate so the boys didn't have access to the stairs, then she recommended some places to eat or go for some groceries. When I was getting ready to cook we noticed we left our bag of spices, flour, etc. at home, Surprisingly there were all the things I needed inside the cabinets. Not to mention the delicious fresh eggs from the farm and the local milk inside the fridge. Everything was very neat and clean, specially the bathroom. It has a two person shower, super white thick towels. I loved the goat milk soap (from a local farm). During bed time we used the fan which was like using an A/C, awesome. The queen sized bed was super comfortable and cozy, we slept like babies. In the morning there was a basket of fresh baked goods, fresh bread and our favorite crumb buns, yum. We got picked up all our things before 11am (check out time) we went to call Jackie and she asked us if we wanted to see the Inn (B&B) which was lovely. Jackie gave us a tour of the farm and we got to see the animals. My toddler got to play with their dog Lulu (very playful and a cutie). Jackie explained a lot of how the animals are fed, what they grow in their farm. We didn't want to leave the farm, I really wanted to stay another day. We will definitely be coming back to stay for a weekend this late spring and for the summer time. We loved the way Jackie treated us. She's very kind and we felt very welcomed. I truly recommend Valley Farms wether your going with a big group of family members (theres a Farmhouse) on a romantic getaway or like us with our little ones. It's an amazing experience and a stress reliever. Outstanding:)

This was lovely, unexpected surprise find for us. We had decided on a last minute ski trip to Okemo, and could not find any accommodation near there, so we cast our net wider and stumbled onto Inn at the Valley. We were somewhat concerned about a 40min drive to Okemo...but instead we had an amazing, relaxing and enjoyable time when we were not on the slopes! And Jackie struck a perfect balance between being a warm and gracious host, and giving us plenty of space to enjoy ourselves.

I needed a room just prior to Christmas 2014 and came upon this B&B online. Turns out it was the perfect spot. I stayed in a guest room in the main house which was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The sitting rooms and library were so comfortable and homey. The bedroom was absolutely lovely with a bed that was just right. Breakfast was some of the most scrumptious food I've had. The conversation with Jackie about the organic farm was enlightening. She is the quintessential innkeeper. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here in October and it was a real pleasure. The property is amazing and the B&B itself was very charming, clean and cozy. Jackie was an exceptional host and I plan on returning for another stay, but next time the stay will be longer. I highly recommend this fantastic B&B.

Every fall we stay for a week in New England; this year, we decided to split our time between two of the most highly reviewed B&B’s in the Explorer’s Guides to Vermont and New Hampshire. The second half of our week was spent at the delightful Inn at Valley Farms, just outside of Walpole. We stayed in the Garden Suite in the main house, which was warm, inviting, and spacious. Jackie, our host, served us breakfasts in the formal dining room, where we were made to feel like the lord and lady of Downton Abbey. The delicious farm-to-table fare was the ideal hearty start to days spent exploring the charming nearby towns, including Walpole itself, which has become our latest dream hometown. Jackie clearly went above and beyond for us on the last day of our stay, when we needed to leave early, by preparing an earlier than usual breakfast (minus the cooking) for us, including raspberries that she picked in the garden after dark the night before! It’s hard to list everything that’s wonderful about the Inn at Valley Farms, but here goes: the bucolic view of grazing cows in the mist outside our bedroom window; the sights and sounds of free range chickens and barnyard cats on the neighboring property, Alyson’s orchard and farmstand across the road, the walking trails to the “hidden acre”; the delicious cooked breakfasts; the vintage furniture and knickknacks. Plus, Jackie always had plenty of ideas for places to visit, restaurants to try, and sights to see. Most highly recommended!

I love to garden and grow as much food for my family and guests as possible which feeds my passion for cooking (or is it the other way around???). I'm passionate about cooking everything from scratch using fresh, seasonal products bursting with flavor. Two additional passions are photography and traveling - even if it's just exploring all the hidden gems of our local area!

One of our guests' favorite and most requested breakfast item is popovers. We always cook with as many of our own or locally grown, minimally processed foods as possible. Our motto when cooking is "simple and fresh" so our breakfast menu always revolves around what's fresh and in-season. Popovers are one of those simple yet decadent treats that lend themselves perfectly to other fresh foods such as creamy scrambled eggs using our own pasture-raised eggs, herbs and local cheeses and our own fresh fruit preserves made from the amazing bounty around us.
