About

We are an intimate New England country inn. Tucked on 400 spectacular acres just 30 miles from Burlington and 15 from St. Albans, the inn truly is a four-season retreat and perfectly located to explore Northern Vermont. CANADIAN cross border shoppers appreciate the loonie at par 5 months a year, being able to send their internet purchases here in advance, while everyone loves the half price mid-week winter special. Hot tub, heated pool (in season), antique shop, satellite TV, WiFi, *maple syrup production, x-country skiing on miles of trails are just some of our offerings. We now offer, for the convenience of those who’d rather sit by that fire than head out to dinner, home made pizza in three sizes, two pasta choices, fondu or chili dinners. Even we are surprised by how popular they are. A full Vermont Breakfast, always included with your stay, is served in our intimate country dining room. Hope to see you soon.

A charming, relaxing stay

4.8 on October 09, 2014

This was the Vermont vacation we envisioned. It's only 35 minutes from downtown Burlington but it felt like we were transported to a quiet, relaxing world, where we were surrounded by fall foliage and rolling hills. The rooms were clean, cozy and comfortable (we stayed in the Foliage room) and the bathrooms were immaculate. Best of all, it really felt like home. We spent a few hours lounging in the living room, reading and drinking tea. Breakfast was terrific too, we got to taste the maple syrup from Brad and Jacquie's backyard. We even got to venture into the sugar shack where they harvest the syrup each spring! It was the first time we've traveled to Vermont, and Buck Hollow Farm perfectly matched that pastoral image in our heads. This gets our highest recommendation.


My Stay at Buck Hollow

5 on June 02, 2014

My stay for 3 days at Buck Hollow B&B was excellent! Brad and Jacquie welcomed me and I enjoyed our conversations. The B&B is decorated in antiques, very homey, and I was pampered. To the big moose on the bed, to all the details; New England coffee in the morning overlooking the field The scenery is breath-taking! Oh, did I mention I'm from FL? Nestled in the hills, watching the birds in the feeder and Brad throwing the Frisbee to the dogs! The bed was comfy, rooms spotless. I rate this a 12 on a 1-10 scale. I'm leaving this morning with Vermont Maple Syrup and a Buck Hollow mug from the gift shop. I will be back, staying here to visit family nearby! Thank you Brad and Jacquie!


Wonderful Experience

We enjoyed our stay here. It was a wonderful experience, the room beautiful, the food excellant and the hospitality great. It was fun to meet all the guests and had wonderful conversation. Our dinner at St. Albans at Jeff's Maine Seafood was the best. The foliage in Vermont was beautiful. What a wonderful trip!


Already Planning Our 2014 Return!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Buck Hollow. With warm hosts, a cozy room, an excellent pool and hot tub, and a gorgeous sun room, this place cannot be beat. Our breakfast was marvelous every morning as well. The area has so much going on (numerous festivals and get-togethers, including this weekend's French Heritage Day in nearby Vergennes). We loved spending two of our days touring the nearby towns, and the other swimming in the pool and reading in the sunroom. It was ideal! If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in a picturesque setting, you can't go wrong here.

Exceptional Quality

Brad Schwartz was in touch regularly prior to our arrival with a newsletter and welcoming information. Upon arrival we experienced an inn and hosts who were helpful & friendly. The amenities were plentiful -- from snacks to swimming pool. Breakfasts were nicely prepped with menu provided the night before.


Worth the trip and for sure going back again and again !

4.8 on August 11, 2012

It was our first time at this B&B and for sure we will go back. Lots of planned details from the owners, the rooms are decorated with lots of attention. The staff and owners are very friendly and make you feel at home the minute you arrive. Make sure to visit their antiques barn.


Everything was Great for Our Stay

5 on June 18, 2012

We very much enjoyed the scenery. Guest services were terrific and there were lots of dedicated spaces for guests. Breakfast was excellent as well. Brad, Jacquie and Sheri did a great job hosting us. We stayed only for one night but wished we had time for 1 or 2 more.


Amazing Get Away

5 on May 31, 2012

My husband and I along with our 2 children stayed for 5 days in April of 2012. We all absolutely loved every minute of our stay and even my children ages 6 and 10 can not wait to go back. The staff was so welcoming and friendly including our K-9 friends. We did not realize how much there was to do, every day was something new, except looking for Morris the Moose, hopefully next time we get to see him :-) The breakfast was fabulous, picture perfect for sure. And for the price, you definitely will not get better than this. No more hotels, The Inn At Buck Hollow showed my family how vacation should be!! Thank you to everyone there for a wonderful week and we cannot wait to see you again! :-)


Fantastic Stay

5 on May 26, 2012

My wife and I stayed for two nights. Loved the Inn, ambiance, and breakfast was wonderful. For our first time here, felt like we were home. Brad and Jackie are excellent Innkeepers, and not only keep a beautiful Inn but are wonderful people to sit and talk with. We have stayed at a number of BnB's throughout the US; this was one of the best we've been at. Highly recommend!
