Vermont Bed and Breakfast
Summertime in Vermont. With so much
to see and do, you won't want to go home!
Whether you're interested in championship golf, hiking, mountain biking, or music, it's all right here in
Southern Vermont! In fact, The Long Trail is a hiking path traveling
265 miles north/south the entire length of Vermont and is only a 30 minute drive from us. Mount Snow championship
golf course, a mountain biking facility, Orvis fly fishing instruction, gift shops, a quilting store,
petting farm, winery, large flea market, ferry boat tours and more are only a few minutes away.
The Annual Strolling of the Heifers Parade
Strolling of the Heifers is a celebration of cows, farmers, artists, and the sustainable practices that
nurture and preserve our families, communities and rural way of life. Our little Vermont bed and breakfast
is a great example of that, because we are also a small working farm that can appreciate all that farming
has offered our family over the years.
The annual Strolling of the Heifers parade/festival will be held on Main Street America, taking
place in June, not far away in nearby Brattleboro, Vermont. As Farmer Bill has in the past, he'll be walking one of our calfs -
assuming we have one that is the right age at the time.
The calf shown here is "Valentine", a spendid heifer who had a most wonderful time a couple of years ago,
participating in the strolling event. He was dressed up with pink rabbit ears and loved getting his picture
taken with our guests. Needless to say, Valentine make this guest's Vermont vacation one to remember.
The heifer parade is like no other as thousands of cow fanciers line the streets amidst lawn chairs and
cow balloons to see 75 flower-bedecked bovine beauties identified by name strut their stuff up Main
Street Brattleboro led by Putney School students, farmers and 4-H Club members. Lively entertainment and
colorful floats, including clowns, a dairy fairy, horses, oxen, alpacas, water buffalo, camels, yaks and
more follow as Turkey Hill's Giant Cow and cow-costumed pooper-scoopers play up the moood.1
We hope you'll join us this year. For more information,
