About the property

Recent addition to Historic Farm - Suite with a View

The Farm Luxury Suite offers elegant and spacious accommodations. It is perfect for a couple seeking a romantic getaway. Located between the Vermont towns of Bennington and Manchester, the Farm offers days of wonderful recreation, touring, shopping and evenings at casual or fine dining restaurants. The full kitchen and dining area can offer you the opportunity to cook meals, an economical advantage for longer stays.

The first-floor Suite is available for rental periods of 2 or 3 nights and one week from May through October. The Farm is a wonderful place during those months. Foliage is exceptional as there are over 300 maple trees on the Farm's 18 acres. Sugaring season occurs during March each year providing maple syrup for the summer.

The Suite has: 1) a great room with a dining table, chairs, a recliner, desk, large-screen TV, lounge chair, and pull-out queen couch; 2) a full kitchen with laundry facilities; 3) tile bathroom with accessible shower; 4) a Bedroom with king bed, large closet, chest, lounge chair, and large screen TV. The kitchen has a Keurig K-cup brewer, toaster, full-size fridge, microwave, full-size gas range, large sink, dishwasher, stacking clothes washer/dryer.

The suite will accommodate up to four persons; two guests in the bedroom (king bed) and two guests on the queen sofa bed with memory foam padding. For two guests the nightly/weekly rate applies; for the third and/or fourth guests add $25 to the nightly rate.

Panoramic views from the picture window overlook the Farm’s five-acre meadow, forest, and mountains beyond.

Behind the Farmhouse is a slate patio surrounded by fieldstone walls. Comfortable patio furniture and picnic table offer an opportunity for outdoor dining. The patio overlooks a huge tree stand, an expansive meadow, and the mountains beyond. On-site is a paved parking area.

Breakfast and dinner options are available at additional cost. Daily menus are provided. Full country breakfasts must be scheduled a day ahead. Our breakfast consists of several courses; homemade muffins, fruit, sweet dishes, Farm greens with egg entrees. We use our own maple syrup from our acres of maple trees; grow our own herbs and greens. Dinner selections may be made in the morning. The Farm food service is provided in the main dining area or screened porch located on the first floor.

The Farm is a smoke-free site. There will be no smoking or tobacco products in any room, bathroom, kitchen, garage, sheds, barn, or anywhere on the property.

The Farm has from three to ten free-range chickens that supply eggs for our guests. Due to the vulnerability of our chickens and livestock, dogs will not be allowed at the Farm. Horses may be boarded at a neighbor's stable. There are riding trails in the area.

About Donna and Cliff Ward

The owners, Cliff and Donna, have been in the hospitality business for 17 years. Our Country Inn, Meadowood Farm, is large enough to provide vacation rentals at reasonable rates, a Bed and Breakfast, or a full service Country Inn.

The Farm is open for rentals from May through October. The Farm is a wonderful place during those months. Foliage is exceptional as there are over 300 maple trees on the Farm's 18 acres.

With the cold winds blowing and the snow flying, the owners head for Naples and Islamorada, Florida to spend the winter months fishing.

Cliff worked as an Operating Engineer and Donna a Computer Systems Engineer. They have been married for 49 years, have two grown children; one in Lake Tahoe, California and the other in Reno, Nevada with two daughters.

Before coming to Vermont in 1999, the owners lived in Saratoga Springs, NY. They retired from their 'regular jobs' to take on a large Inn near Manchester, VT. With 11 guest rooms, the Battenkill Inn was a tremendous undertaking. After five years they sold the Inn to purchase Meadowood Farm, a gentlemen's farm. After doubling the size of the home, Cliff and Donna started a Bed and Breakfast that exclusively operated for eight years. Recently, in addition to the Bed and Breakfast booked through the Meadowood Farm, Vermont website; they offer a 4 bedroom/3.5 bath Farmhouse, a suite (one-bedroom apartment), and rooms for vacations and getaways with breakfast and dinner service by prior arrangement.

Donna and Cliff Ward purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Donna and Cliff Ward chose Southwestern Vermont

Vermont is a wonderful place in the summer; green everywhere. The Farm is on back roads amidst several horse and dairy farms. On the side of West Mountain, our vistas stretch for miles.
