About Beth Emmerick

Innisfree is owned by a group of trustees. I am the managing trustee and live in the house next door.

Why Beth Emmerick chose Strafford

Innisfree was purchased by my grandmother over 70 years ago. Family members have been enjoying the property ever since. It is spacious, comfortable and perfect for group/family gatherings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at Beth's home, our bed was super comfortable, the room was really beautiful, and the house is very nice. Beth and mike are very friendly, although we barely saw them while we were there since we were out wandering in the parks. The area is perfect, about an hour away from all the places we visited. This place is perfect for a vacation home. There is everything you need, and all you have to bring with you is food and beverage. I totally recommend staying here. :)

Wedding Reunion Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of eight had a lovely get-together at Innisfree while gathering for a nearby wedding. Plenty of room for everyone, lots of conveniences, fireplace and beautiful green lawn.

Very easy to book and communication with owners was warm and welcoming.

Fantastic Getaway Home in the Beautiful Vermont Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 3-day stay at Innisfree. The property is old and beautiful, and the house is spacious, well-appointed and has great character. The bed I slept in was the most comfortable I have ever visited - be it hotel or rental. Views to the surrounding rolling green mountains are spectacular, and the large lawn area was ideal for the badminton, volleyball, croquet and bocce that was provided. Beth the owner was wonderful - she made sure we were settled in, and even baked and brought us some delicious cookies. We couldn't have had a more perfect and relaxing stay in the beautiful Vermont countryside, and we will definitely be coming back!

Beautiful spot, very nice home, and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spot to stay. We had a big group and it fit us all without a problem. Beth met the group on arrival and gave a quick tour and was kind and responsive throughout the whole process. The house is full of interesting family and American history and is sizable but also cozy. The backyard looks out over beautiful hillsides. I spent my Saturday evening lying on my hammock reading and watching the sunset over a deer grazing in the meadow. Pretty perfect!

Beautiful property in beautiful country.

  • 4 of 5

A very nice, peaceful home with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. Elizabeth and Mike were very helpful. The pictures on the web did a great job, the house and rooms in the house were just as we expected. We were there to attend a wedding, so we didn't have enough time to truly take advantage of the house, but we certainly hope to go back in the near future when we can spend more time relaxing at the house. As a side note, this part of the state does not have good cell service, so cell phones do not work (which can be a good thing), but the house does have WiFi so you can communicate with the rest of the world. Thanks Elizabeth and Mike for sharing your beautiful house.

This is a uniquely beautiful and comfortable house, not to be missed. Put your bag down and exhale, you are immediately at home with the beautiful mountain setting.

Big House! Big Heart! It's Grandmas House's

  • 5 of 5

Did you ever get to or want to go to Grandma's house for holidays? Did you get to have a sleepover with your cousins? Have you ever seen homemade pies lined up on the window sill? Have you played croquet on front lawn with a backdrop of crimson and golden Vermont maple lined hillsides?

We did all of this and more in this great big beautiful, comfortable, fully furnished attention to detail home. Beth is definitely a credit to her family for keeping this property in great condition. It's roomy and comfortable, fresh and clean and well stocked for wide range of interests as well as needs. Perfect for cooking and entertaining a large family gathering - we had beautiful Thanksgiving sit down dinner for twenty-two. Books and board games galore for adults and children. Television set-up entertained and provided easy access for viewing baseball playoffs, Thursday and Sunday football. Wifi kept us connected to cyber space since for text and internet since Strafford has no cell service - only landline.

The bedrooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated. Our granddaughters ages 12-4 loved them!! We are so very grateful to Beth for her warmth and hospitality. We will return.
