Mari Omland & Laura Olsen own and run Green Mountain Girls Farm. In the heart of Central Vermont, we are raising healthy (natural and sustainable), happy (free range and loved) animals and vegetables. In addition to raising tasty food, we provide a wonderful respite for visitors.
We practice relational farming, inviting members and visitors to share and enjoy our farm and its products—connecting people to farms so they can both source high quality, healthy, well-raised food, and so they can learn how their food can be produced sustainably.
Laura Olsen & Mari Omland - Green Mountain Girls Farm purchased this farmhouse in 2012
House is on a working farm with a robust farmstand full of organic vegetables, pasture-raised meats and other value added products raised and produced on the farm.
A beautiful house with every amenity, attentive hostesses, and wonderful views out every window even with the fall foliage almost gone. We loved watching the farm animals, especially at feeding time.
We will definitely return and highly recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a perfect Vermont vacation at any time of year. A gem.
My family and I arrived May 8th for my son's graduation from Norwich University on the 9th. We had four generations of the family on hand. We stayed at the farmhouse and it exceeded our expectations by a mile. The farmhouse was truly beautiful and a perfect gathering place for the family. After Commencement on Saturday Mari and Laura prepared a wonderful dinner that fed the entire group with left plenty of left overs. On Sunday for Mother's Day the ladies made us a delicious brunch that was out of this world. After brunch we took the grand kids down to watch the goats being milked. It was great and the kids had a great time. We could not have scripted it any better because we witnessed the birth of Johnny and June (baby goats). It was a perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day. I don't write many reviews but, the Green Mountain Girls made this a special time for our family. Thank you Ladies!!!
We checked in late one February night to a warm, beautifully appointed home. The masonry heating fireplace (what a showpiece!) had been lit earlier in the evening prior to our arrival – what a welcome! The home has been so thoughtfully designed – there is an ease to the layout and an attention to detail with what is provided to guests. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked with cooking appliances and accoutrements. The farmhouse itself is very spacious – our two families enjoyed cooking together and catching up in the dining room & family room and then retiring to our separate private quarters. Mari and Laura were so wonderful to connect with - we all enjoyed our farm tour and the kids especially loved sledding and collecting eggs from the chickens. We are just now finishing off the last of our farmstand goodies and hope to return soon for another visit. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
What a wonderful place for a long weekend getaway It was a truly beautiful place to relax and spend time with family. Mari and Laura were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed seeing and learning about their working farm. The farmhouse inn was a luxurious retreat and provided everything we needed, including the delicious products from their farm. It was the perfect accommodation for a winter getaway. We'd love to come back in another season and appreciate more of Vermont's natural beauty.
We truly loved everything about this house! It is simply gorgeous and was perfect for our child. She loved the farm and feeding the animals everyday! Mari and Laura we so helpful and generous! Our VT crew of 6 loved the stay! The house had everything you could possibly imagine and the kitchen was fully stocked! Thank you for a wonderful NYE!
There were four of us (two couples) and this was the perfect spot for a friendly reunion -- there was ample room to cook and eat together, and plenty of private space too. The vistas out all the windows were incredible. We went snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on the trails adjacent to the house and then warmed up in front of the beautiful stone fireplace. The biggest treat was when the farmer-owners helped us make fresh sausage which we got to eat with our breakfast on Sunday morning.
The house is beautiful, clean, spacious and well-stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking several meals. Everything was new and nice, from linens to glassware. We can't wait to go back.
