Enjoyed our stay at Wilder Farm Inn!

5 on August 17, 2017

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Wilder Farm Inn. We chose the Heritage room. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We had plenty of room to move around and for our luggage, etc. A private bath is assigned for each individual room. Although the bath is not attached to the room, it is a short walk down the hallway. The owners thought of everything by providing white terry cloth robes for their guests. Ryan prepared a wonderful 'farm to table' breakfast every morning. We enjoyed fresh eggs, greens, locally made yogurt, home made jam and delicious juice and coffee. The rooms do not have TVs in them, but there is one in the common area if you'd like to watch it. We did not miss having a TV at all! In fact, it was nice to just enjoy the quiet. We look forward to staying there again in the future.


Excellent Vermont Chic Experience.

We were in Waitsfield for a wedding and opted to stay at Wilder Farm. Could not have been happier with our choice! Service was wonderful, breakfast delicious, and the location was great!


Perfect Vermont Inn

This is such a charming old farmhouse in Vermont, and just what we envisioned for our first visit to the area. Luke and Linda are wonderful hosts, terrific cooks, and make you feel completely at home with them. Make sure to get their recommendations on scenic drives, places to eat and things to do - they know their stuff. And a special thank you to Luke for such an enjoyable lesson in his artistry! ~Chessie & Mark Little

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!
