Hill Farm Inn Bed and Breakfast and its innkeepers have a mission: to make this New England Vermont inn "Your place in the country" and to surround you with caring comfort to renew your body and spirit.

Simply inhaling is a very special experience here. Outside, the scents are new-mown hay, crisp fall leaves, and a hint of wood smoke on the air. Inside, savor the aromas of homemade bread fresh from the oven. Hill Farm Inn, one of Vermont's first country Inns, still specializes in warm country hospitality.

The Inn has accommodated families with children since 1905. It's the kind of place where there's always lots to do -- but never anything you have to do. And it's been that way for more than 90 years. Surrounded by 50 acres of farmland with a mile of frontage on the famed Battenkill River, Hill Farm Inn enjoys spectacular mountain views in every direction.

The Inn and its 50 acres of farmland are part of the original land grant from King George III to the Hill family in 1775. Constructed in 1830 as a farm house about a mile away, the front portion of the main Inn building was moved to its present location by 40 yoke of oxen in the 1840's. The guest house next door was built in 1790. In 1905, Mettie Hill, a widow with young children, opened her home to summer vacationers thus beginning a tradition of Hill Farm Inn hospitality.

The Inn has five guest rooms on the second floor of the 1830 main Inn and an additional five rooms in the 1790 guest house next door. All lodging accommodations have private baths, and each is individually decorated to capture the spirit and charm of a New England farmhouse. For that special escape, consider one of the Inn's deluxe two-room suites. All offer gas fireplaces in the sitting room, while two suites also have kitchenettes. The other suite has a large bedroom with cathedral ceiling, skylight, and small sitting room. Both have private baths, their own porches, outside entrances, and incomparable views of the Taconic and Green Mountains.

The owners have remodeled and created two new family suites. The Mettie Hill Suite features a queen-sized sleigh bed, private bath, a bright and spacious sitting room with full sofa sleeper, and cable television with VCR. The Obadiah Suite features a king-sized bed, private hall bath, a sitting room with a full sofa sleeper, and wonderful views.

From May 20 to October 20, four cabins are also available. Each is different, but each has an open front porch and a bathroom with shower, and all are heated. All guests enjoy time spent in the Inn's common rooms -- meeting new friends around the fireplace in the parlor, doing jigsaw puzzles in the dining room, delving into the game cupboard, or quietly reading by the fire or on the welcoming wrap-around front porch.

An important part of the Inn's country hospitality is, of course, home-cooking. Guests enjoy a full country breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. each morning. Your hosts specialize in home-baked breads and granola -- all from scratch.

At Hill Farm Inn, steeped in Vermont tradition, your hosts keep the tradition alive. They invite you to stay awhile and share their special haven of tranquility.

Hill Farm Inn is fun for the whole family! The area abounds with activities for kids and adults of all ages. Nestled in a valley, you will be surrounded by the majesty of the mountains and the peace of open pastures. Take in these beautiful views while rocking in a wicker chair and sipping iced tea from the Inn's porch. The Battenkill, a world-class trout stream, borders the lower meadow and beckons you to try your skills against some of the smartest fish in the world. Visit the farm's cats, sheep, goats, and chickens. Find that perfect antique in the quiet of a back road country shop or the excitement of a country auction or flea market. Walk the country roads along wooded streams, past cows grazing up mountains smelling of pine. Drive through a covered bridge and shop for candles or a Teddy bear alongside a waterfall just minutes from the Inn.

The change of seasons is something special in the area. In Spring, just before the trees begin to bud, the country roads are lined with rows of buckets collecting sap from trees for maple sugaring. As Summer approaches, you will see more shades of green than you ever imagined; glorious crimson sweeping down Mount Equinox as Fall creeps in; the silent blanket of crystal, white snow as Winter makes its debut.
