This was the 4th time that my mom, my daughter, and myself visited HHF. We usually stay for 3 nights, and this time we stayed in the beautifully renovated apartment, attached to the farmhouse. As HHF was taken over by Catherine and Neil at the end of 2020, I was wondering if I would still love the place. And yes, I was not disappointed. Catherine and Neil were very welcoming, as were their teenage daughters and son. The breakfasts were delicious and of the same high quality as before (everything just out of the oven, and most ingredients from the farm). Over breakfast, it was exciting to hear all the wonderful plans that the Dunlops have for the farm, whilst looking to include other local businesses. This is only the beginning for them, and I look forward to seeing how they grow. With the beautiful town of Montpelier just 20 minutes away, Boulder Beach only 30 minutes away, and a driving range just a few miles away, there is something for everyone. The Dunlop daughters even lit the fire in the outdoor fire pit one evening at my daughter's request. A very enjoyable experience overall!!!…
HHF is a magical place. It's not just the wonderful beef cattle, jersey cows, pigs, chickens and barn cats, but the warm and gracious farmers, your hosts Bob and Lee Light. They are true stewards of the land, caring for the animals and cultivating the soil in a way that is rare on today's farms. Lee's breakfasts (prepared with food from the property) are magnificent and Bob's convivial conversation up to the high level of the food. Combined with the quiet, peaceful atmosphere, fresh air and unparalleled views across the valley to the Green Mountains beyond, you will never want to go home. Montpelier is only 20 minutes away. It might be the smallest state capital in the U.S., but it has the most beautiful gold-domed state house. Perfect college town and brewery-laden Burlington is under an hour away. Stowe and its ski hills are even closer. Ben & Jerry's factory ice cream parlor is closer yet. When you're done with all that, there are swimming holes, covered bridges, hiking and biking trails and artists studios to discover.…
Two city girls looking for relaxation and a taste of farm life. Could not have asked for a better experience. Our hosts Lee and Bob were warm and welcoming. The house and our accommodations were comfortable, clean and just lovely. You get a true glimpse into farm life and the dedication that goes into it. Plenty of animals to see too. The breakfasts were great and Bob and Lee are happy to share their stories of their very interesting lives as farmers. Centrally located to get out and explore Montpelier or Barre. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.
I loved staying at Hollister Hill Farm! Lee greeted us, along with Lucy and Bella (the friendly, calm dogs) and showed us our rooms. Bob came up to say hi, too. We are a family of four with two young children, and unfortunately we didn't make it in time for the boys to help Bob with afternoon chores, which they were invited to do. Lee set us up in a two-room suite, one large room with a queen bed and a love seat attached to a 2nd room with a twin bed, and Lee put in a blow-up twin bed for our other child, which was perfect. We used the bathroom across the hall, but the other two (unoccupied) rooms had en suite bathrooms, so had others been staying in the main house, we would not have shared with anyone else. We spent the next morning enjoying the barn (my kids named each of the barn cats and desperately wanted to take them all home!), and I loved the playful piglets. Breakfast was outstanding: homemade pancakes, fried eggs, beautiful maple syrup, coffee, apple cider...it was so good! Lee made it all, and Bob, who had been out early with farm chores, joined us for breakfast. I loved visiting with everyone at the table, which truly is family style. Lee and Bob sit at the heads of the table, and the guests (there was another family staying in the Little House) sat on the long sides of the table. We all talked, got to know each other, visited over a beautiful, home-cooked meal. I loved it there. The only unfortunate part for us is that we didn't arrive early enough to enjoy an afternoon on the farm.…
We returned to Hollister Hill farm for another wonderful B&B experience. It again exceeded our expectations. Lee and Bob Light are warm, wonderful and interesting people with an astonishing depth of knowledge about farming, raising animals and beautiful central Vermont. This place is the "real deal" and their guests are treated like family friends. Comfortable rooms, superb breakfast and stimulating conversation are part of every visit. Thank you Bob and Lee!
