The Yellow Farmhouse Inn, Waitsfield, Vermont

Waitsfield, Vermont is my go-to destination in Vermont for a night away. It’s a hop, skip and an Appalachian Gap from Middlebury and is home to some of my favorite restaurants and watering holes in the state (have you tried Mad Taco or Peasant yet?). The Mad River […]

We both have a thing for old Vermont farmhouses and a desire to someday own one. Maybe it’s the history of an old house—the raising of children, the family gatherings, the comings […]
