What an amazing way to spend our 30th wedding anniversary in Vermont. Wilder Farm Inn is in the heart of the beautiful fall foliage. Every view from the home was gorgeous. Luke and Linda were the epitomy of the perfect hosts. From the minute we arrived they made us feel right at home and a part of this community. Breakfast was outstanding and Luke is quite the chef not to mention the creative potter. We would definitely stay with Luke and Linda again and plan to return soon. Thanks for a great time!

Luke and Linda were great. They really helped out when I brought my wife up for her 30th birthday. Breakfasts were very tasty and Luke gave us a lot of great trips for exploring the valley... from cheese to short hikes.... and a great bar too. We will be back in the summer for another stay.

We recently stayed for a long weekend at Wilder Farm Inn, and had really a wonderful experience. Our group of 7 (2 adults, 5 kids aged 9, 11, 14, 15 & 15) shared 2 rooms and everyone was comfortable. The beds were great, the rooms completely charming in decor, the breakfasts, whipped up to order, were delicious, and Luke and Linda are such lovely hosts, they make you feel like you're visiting family (and not just any family, but favorite family!). Linda even wrapped up strudel for us for the road when we were too full to finish it at breakfast. We all agreed that there is a return visit to Wilder Farm Inn in our future!

When I googled "pottery B&B Vermont" I could never have imagined that the first place I found would be so perfect for my goal to relax and bring out the artist within! I loved the Wilder Farm; from the healthy, organic and scrumptious breakfasts, afternoon snacks and gourmet tea, to the cozy, luxuriously decorated common areas that include comfy chairs, cable TV, WiFi and lots of great books to read... Oh and the bed was so comfortable! I have honestly never slept so well away from home. Luke's ceramics studio was truly my haven to get back in touch with my inspiration and start creating pottery again after 7 years. Luke is a really great teacher and gave me terrific insider's tips to getting my own studio on track and improving my technique. Luke introduced me into the local pottery community and I was lucky enough to attend a Potter's Potluck at Robert Compton's studio! In all, Luke was instrumental in giving a workshop that was set within beautiful countryside, surrounded with creativity (artisans shops and galleries in Waitsfield) and which allowed me as the student to drink it all in just create my own art while he gently guided my inspiration. I am grateful to Luke and Linda for creating such a wonderful retreat for the soul!

Our room was large and the bed was more comfortable than at home. Luke and Linda were very gracious hosts. Breakfast was amazing and the apres ski snack was very yummy. We had such a nice stay and can't wait to come back.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway from the city and couldn't have been happier. We were looking for a place near Sugarbush since I'm learning to ski this year and the drive to the mountain was less than 10 minutes, which was perfect! Linda and Luke were so helpful all weekend with suggestions about when to get to the mountain, where to eat (def go to the Alchemist, what a great place!), and just very informative about the general area. I definitely suggest trying Luke's pecan pancakes because they were so delicious, we were there a few weeks ago and are still talking about them. We really hope we make it back to Wilder Farm Inn next winter for another great experience. Thanks again Linda and Luke!

Our stay at the Wilder Farm Inn was wonderfully warm, cozy and friendly. The beds were soooo comfortable and inviting. The breakfasts were 5 star. Luke and Linda were such gracious hosts offering help and information on the local areas. We met some wonderful people while staying at the Inn. The saying on the wll is true-"Come as guests but leave as friends."

Just got back from an enchanting ski weekend at the Wilder Farm Inn. What an amazing stay our group of eight had! As if the warm, cozy country ambiance of the lovingly appointed historic inn itself and the charm and hospitality of the wonderful hosts was not enough, it was like being in a winter wonderland with the mountains, villages and just everything blanketed in snow. Beautiful landscapes and icicle formations everywhere! Light snow fell the entire time making it even more romantic and memorable. Everything inside and out picture postcard perfect! Skiing and snowmobiling, exploring the quaint and picturesque villages, beautifully decorated comfy rooms, hearty scrumptious breakfasts and a roaring fire all added up to the perfect winter retreat, just what you imagine a perfect winter weekend in Vermont would be. The hosts made sure we went to the best local places for dinner and our evening meals were awesome! This is the best Vermont getaway we have had and we will be back again soon, if not for skiing then for fall foliage. We stay at many B&B's and guest houses and needless to say, the Wilder Farm Inn is highly recommended !

While on a biking trip in VT, I spent a couple of days at the Inn. The room was spacious and comfortable with excellent food made from organic local ingredients. Luke and Linda were good hosts and Luke took a friend and me on a challenging 3-4 hour mountain bike ride on trails we would not have found on our own.

We visited VT late Sept to view the fall foliage-Beautiful! We stayed 3 nights in the Robin room, and thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Wilder Farm Inn. The hospitality from inn keepers was warm and caring. The breakfasts were outstanding; very helpful tour information; the country house is charming, clean and cumfy! Can't wait to return!

We first had an interest in the Wilder Farm Inn because of their use of organic products. Well, after staying there we just fell in love with the Inn Keepers, Luke and Linda and all they did to make our stay a very pleasant one. As strict vegetarians, we had a little concern about what our breakfast would be like. Luke had no problem creating these delicious breakfasts of smoothies, scrambled tofu with fresh veggies from their garden, blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup, and even soy milk to add to the organic coffee! Luke is an excellent cook. He also helped a lot in locating restaurants, shops, and hiking trails. The rooms are so beautifully decorated. Seems every time we visit we find that Linda has added some new touches to them. Comfy mattress toppers, organic soap, loads of currant magazines to read, and a night cap! Nice little touches make this a rare find at a fair price. We highly recommend the Wilder Farm Inn. Mark and Dorothy from Northeast PA

Website: Outdated They dont accept pets anymore. Homade Organic Soaps advertised as aromatic morning refresher-None Breakfast:8am-9am (small window) Pancakes-Blueberry w/ 2 sausage links Yogurt w/banana No Muffins,cakes,homemade pies,desserts,rolls,cookies, etc."like other B&B's visited No Fresh Milk or special Juices.( a small pitcher of OJ) Nothing to make you say AHHHHHH Amazing breakfast. Bedrooms decor nicely-COLD at nite in JULY-space heater was provided on 2nd nite as we froze our butts off our first nite. Brownies-Mid afternoon snack everyday-didnt change (not a brownie lover here) no other choices. Luke and Linda are very nice people learning how to run a B&B in over all it was a nice stay. A bit pricey for what is offered comparing to other B&B's. Very informative on festives & Dining areas. We will come back to this town as it was a very quaint & enjoyable experience.
We’re so sorry to learn that you did not completely enjoy your stay at the Wilder Farm Inn. Our inn is very special to us and we try to make it just as special for our guests. In all fairness, we'd like to point out some misstated information. WEBSITE: Our pet policy on the BedandBreakfast.com website, not the Wilder Farm Inn website, needed to be updated, and we have since corrected it; thank you for bringing it to our attention. SOAPS: ALL bathrooms do have organic handmade hand soap & body gel (lemon grass zen hand soap & lavender body gel) made by the Vermont Soap Company. BREAKFAST HOURS: Breakfast is served 8:00-9:30; not until 9:00. In addition, we will be happy to accommodate you should you need it earlier/later and we believe that's exactly what we did for you. A large pitcher of OJ is kept filled until service ends and we also provided freshly-made fruit smoothies. AFTERNOON SNACK: Typically, our mid-afternoon snack is different each day. During your stay, another guest requested the brownies a second time, which is the reason for their encore. ROOM TEMP: We’re sorry you felt chilly; we didn’t expect that to be the case since it was a hot July night and other guests were running the air conditioners. Thank you for bringing it to our attention at the time, so that we could provide a heater to you. BREAKFAST: We pride ourselves on serving a 2-3 course, mostly organic/homemade breakfast. All of our cooking/baking is from scratch and being a small inn, our preference is to serve a well-prepared meal in lieu of a continental style breakfast. Of course, we can accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences for any of our guests – and we were happy to do so when you informed us of your dislike for eggs during breakfast service. Again, we're sorry your stay was not what you expected. Thank you for sharing your comments.
