This is a great place. Built in 1720 during the revolutionary war. Current owner has owned for about 40 years. Great antiques and working farm with goats, ducks, chickens, etc. breakfast is from the farm. Fresh eggs and he makes his own goat cheese and soap. Place is a little dusty as there are so many things to see and...

First off, I have to admit that we did not actually stay at Butternut Farm. We had reservations for two rooms over several days, however our plans changed and we needed to cancel our reservations. The owner required us to pay in full before our arrival and by check written to him personally. He did not provide us with a...

if you have an allergy to cats, as I do, under no circumstances make a reservation here. To secure the reservation you are required to pay by check or cash only (made out to Mr. Reid, not the business) only to find out when you arrive that there is a cat that is allowed to roam freely on the property...

What an incredible visit! We came to Butternut Farm for a weekend wedding nearby and hope to return again just for the place. We had a great stay, from delicious homemade breakfasts and a gorgeous and very comfortable room (the parlor room) to fun visits with some friendly goats and chickens. Don went out of his way to make sure...

This was a great and memorable stay! We were met by our host Don, but not before we were met by a gaggle of geese. This is indeed a farm, tucked away in this quiet little New England town. We saw the many cartons of eggs being prepared for the day's market, and we bought a dozen - delicious! But...

I came here with my fiance and had an awesome time. The proprietor was so sweet and took really good care of his guests and animals. I love the farm - there were goats, chickens, geese and 2 cats. The 2 cats are very friendly. Don made a really yummy breakfast with fresh eggs from his farm. He also sold...

We stayed at the Butternut Farm B&B recently when in town for a family wedding. You turn from the road into the fenced property and are immediately greeted by chickens and goats. We were lucky enough to arrive shortly after the birth of the newest member of the Butternut Farm goat family - an adorable little lady named Chloe. We...

Based on reviews on both Trip Advisor and B&B websites, I was somewhat hesitant on staying here. I am happy to report that any apprehension I had was unfounded. My wife and I had a delightful getaway stay at the Butternut, albeit too short, as we could only stay for one night. We stayed in the barn apartment, which is...

This 1720 house on 2 acre farm was a trip! Host Don Reid has run this for 20+ years. The house is loaded with lots of cool stuff. He is most genial host. Only warnings: If you can't deal with house cats, this is not the place. Same for smokers. Light sleepers would do best in the 3rd floor suite....
