Hi, we're Dave & Francesca!
Hi and Welcome to the Kingdom!
Heart Winds House is ideally located in Vermont's Beautiful Northeast Kingdom, with plenty of privacy & ample access to all the adventures the area has to offer.
Our family designed & built Heart Winds House out of about 60% recycled &salvaged materials, doing much of the work ourselves. It is serendipitously situated along a picturesque country road & sits right in the middle of a sunny meadow with perfect privacy while being surrounded by trees & allowing glimpses of mountain views — yet so convenient since it is within minutes of the local village & all the area recreation amenities.
We are a "working homestead" & we harvest wood from our managed forest & produce from our gardens. We have been hosting guests from around the world for more than 15 years & thoroughly enjoy it. We have a great affection for Vermont & the Northeast Kingdom Region & love to share that with others.
We also maintain part-time "outside" careers. Francesca is a mosaic artist & graphic designer at Studio Fresca & a part-time art instructor at Burke Mountain Academy. We do offer special packages and workshops for those interested in mosaics & other art forms, so if you'd like to include some art experiences in your visit, just ask! Dave works part-time in the aviation industry, likes to cook & loves to surf. He is the head Chef for Hearty's, a Vermont licensed catering & take-out food service. Hearty's does all the cooking for our Home Stay / B & B guests.
We put a lot of effort into making our guests comfortable & providing a truly special experience including a clean, comfortable, well-equipped house and personal assistance in identifying the places & activities that interest you.
So, follow your heart & head on over — & feel free to contact us if you have any questions or desire further information.
