Rich was outside in the yard and gave us a friendly wave as soon as we turned into their driveway. Rich and Debbie's home is lovely -- one enters a large screened-in sitting area before entering the main home. They have a huge wooden stove in their modern kitchen, whose counters will soon be clad with green serpentine marble from the marble quarry just down the road -- now that's keeping things local!! The lovely dining room has a working, historic fireplace and Danish blue china plates displayed on the wall. The first floor also has a comfortable TV room and front room.

The "Martha" room, where we stayed, was on the main floor. Both of the room's beds had brass headboards and foot boards, and each was clad in quilted coverlets and plenty of pillows. The beds were very comfortable. Extra blankets are provided on a polished wooden rack for wintertime guests, but because we were there on a hot August night, we appreciated the window-mounted electric fan. The "Martha" room has an adjoining private bath which was large and offered both a shower and a tub. The towels were thick, absorbent, and GREAT (when compared to some hotel towels that feel like a skinny dishcloth!)

Everything is CLEAN. Everywhere one sees little items from Debbie's extensive collection of pumpkin-themed items. Debbie's home-cooked breakfast was outstanding and beautifully presented on china plating. A generous fruit cup, then bacon, sausage, and cinnamon raisin French toast which was, of course, accompanied with real Vermont maple syrup! Coffee and a variety of teas are available, but because our family prefers juices, Rich and Debbie provided both orange juice and cranberry juice. They accommodated our preferences, which we thought was very kind.

We felt like Rich and Debbie offered more than just their home to us -- we were treated like family! We are looking forward to another stay at The Pumpkin Patch in the future and would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty climbing a full flight of stairs, we would suggest the Martha Room, as it is...

Debbie & Rich open their beautiful, spotless home with such care for the needs of all guests. We had a wonderful full breakfast every morning. Tea, cookies, cocoa whenever you needed a snack. This bed & breakfast is a gem the beautiful rural town of Rochester, VT. So close to many attractions like Killington, Sugar Bush and the Snow Bowl for skiing. Great places to eat in Rochester. Venture to Waitsfield, Warren and Middlebury for restaurants and shopping. No need to look for another place to stay whether it's winter or summer.

I booked a 2 day reservation on the advice of a local resident at the Pumpkin Patch B&B in Rochester, VT. It's a lovely home located on Route 100 opposite the Rochester Green and next to the town library. The hosts, Richard and Debbie Mathiesen, have a lovely property and were a pleasure to visit. There is one bedroom on the first floor along with a living room, sitting room, kitchen and dining area, and a great screened porch for use in the summer (which I did not use as it was the end of December), additional rooms upstairs. Location was great for me (visiting relatives in Rochester) and the breakfast was great (more than I could eat); care taken to ask about food preferences, etc. when making the reservation. Internet and good cell signal were both present. The B&B is not close to ski areas, but is convenient to both Sugarbush (30 minutes) and Killington (50 minutes). There are great cross-country trails for both skiing and snow-shoeing nearby. Rochester has a few restaurants nearby and Rich and Debbie are very helpful with recommendations.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are probably upstairs

Rochester is a small town seemingly in the middle of nowhere. We had a reason to stay here, visiting our daughter's family in a nearby rustic camp. What a wonderful surprise it was to stay two nights in this very quaint and comfortable home. The furnishings and thousands of pumpkin knick-knacks create a most interesting environment. The owners go out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant stay and provide a terrific breakfast. As small as it is, Rochester provides a surprise or two as well. There is an excellent cafe within walking distance and the B&B is nestled between a church and a library. This is worth a visit even if you don't have a reason to be in the area.
