About

We are an intimate New England country inn. AAA rated at 4 diamonds and rated the best pet friendly inn in New England by Yankee Magazine. 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 20% discount to help offset the loonie 4 months a year, and being able to send their internet purchases here in advance 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.

Too short visit

5 on October 10, 2016

Unfortunately, we came to stay at Brook Hollow a bit late in our two week road trip around NE and Canada, so by the time we got there we were pretty tired - but we did appreciate the rest we got in the comfy bed and the room was wonderful. We really enjoyed meeting everyone and the breakfast was delicious and homemade. We were also faced with the one rainy day during our trip, so we did spend too much time napping in the room - but, I'll say that it was warm and inviting and we really enjoyed our naps :)

Innkeeper Response
I hope guests know how much we appreciate hearing these things (and even appreciate when there is constructive criticism).


Great B&B near Burlington VT

5 on June 27, 2016

The Inn at Buck Hollow Farm offers a nice night's stay in a beautiful area of Vermont that is nearby plenty of activities. The owners are very hospitable and great resources for things to do and places to eat. We drove to Smuggler's Notch (35 mins) and at the Family Table in Jeffersonville (30 mins drive). The setting is picturesque. We stayed in late June. The walking trail was a bit overgrown and waterlogged, but I took a walk on the road in the morning that was fine. The Breakfast was super! Pool and hot tub are available too. Wifi worked well. Stayed June 2016


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

5 on October 13, 2013

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!

5 on July 14, 2013

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.
