What a wonderful place away from it all!

April 29, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Heart Winds House last month and absolutely fell in love with the place! The whole house is lovingly decorated by its hosts and makes you feel comfortable and right at home! It has a well equipped kitchen (even has an espresso machine!) and a beautiful breakfast nook! We especially enjoyed the wood burning stove in the cozy living room and loved our big king size bed in the Maple Room – never slept better!! Watch for the deer to come out of the woods to graze in the meadow at dusk and keep your eyes open, as you might even spot a bear or moose! There is a lot of nature around Heart Winds House and we wish we would have had more time to explore! Very quiet and relaxing! The perfect retreat from your day to day hustle and bustle! We’ll be back for sure!

Fabulous find!

October 5, 2011

We happened upon this house for a wedding in the same town, and what a great place it is. I am not sure what we would have done in the town if we did not have a wedding there, but the home stay was fantastic! The house is private, on 50 acres and down a long driveway. It is really charming - spacious, spotlessly clean, light and airy and very cozy. The owners, Francesca and David were great - nice, down to earth, and so hospitable. We had the two bedrooms on the first floor (sharing a bathroom) to ourselves, and they slept upstairs. They were available, but not in our face, super fun to talk to, and went out of our way to make us comfortable. They had a welcome pack for us, made a delicious breakfast, and had tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies/biscuits for us throughout the day if we wanted. They made a lovely wood fire for us at night and gave helpful tips on dining and activity. The house is well depicted in the pictures, we saw wild turkeys in the yard which was great. We stayed 2 nights, and were not at the house too much, but what a fantastic place to come back to, and what great hosts. Would definitely stay there again if circumstances brought me to the local area.

Beautiful Burke Property

August 30, 2010

This was the perfect property for the group (8-10 people) getaway I so throughly enjoyed! The open concept allows for ample room to gather yet the house also has a great amount of separate rooms to spread out and enjoy your own space. There is nothing better than basking in the sun on the enclosed porch or on the open deck overlooking the beautiful (and private) open meadow! I can't wait to plan to rent this property again.




Womens Retreat

August 30, 2010

Spent an amazing weekend at this amazing property with very amazing women! This home is so open and spacious that a handful of women and all of their stuff had plenty of room. Cooking space is magnificent with much room for grand meals to be prepared and served. Sleeping in the sun room tracking the moon's journey across the sky and waking to the sunshine was very cozy. Hope to make this an annual visit. Francesca was so utterly accomodating!



East Burke, VT

Peaceful Paradise!!

August 29, 2010

My womens group stayed at this beautiful house for a weekend retreat. We were looking for peace, beauty, immersion in nature and all of the comforts of warm beds and a big kitchen for our evening dinners. This house exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations! This is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. It is cozy and comfortable, and also open, large and in the middle of a gorgeous field, with views of Burke Mountain. The kitchen is large and perfect for cooking with friends, while others sip wine and entertain the cooks. The sun room is amazing -- beautiful cathedral ceilings and glass, with views on the expansive field. Flowers, a beautiful large deck, and a network of trails right out of the front door. Many beds and a jacuzzi bath! We could not have hoped for a better experience. Thank you!!

Heaven on earth . . .

August 13, 2009

I typically travel to the North East Kingdom to mountain bike. A year ago, I decided to stay for a week and while searching for rentals, I found this enchanted hidden treasure on the Kingdom Trails website. It is now, they ONLY place I stay when I visit. This magnificent house is quietly tucked away at the base of Burke Mt. Surrounded by fields and trees, it is secluded, private, peaceful and more than anyone could ask for. Wildlife sightings everyday! The house has this great open floor plan and is very spacious. The kitchen is awesome and well stocked with cooking tools. The sunroom and the deck are both great places to sit and enjoy morning coffee! If you are in the area to bike, it is less then two miles to the KT upper parking lot on Darling Hill. If you prefer to ride the Burke Mountain trails, the KT network connects right at the end of the driveway (Kirby connector) I highly recommend it to anyone visiting!

Beatiful property!

We really enjoyed our recent stay at HWH! The property is stunning and very private with lots of windows to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our hosts were very accomodating, helpful and warm. We had a fantastic trip filled with lots of R&R.

Peaceful, beautiful, activity filled getaway

December 14, 2006

I have stayed in this house several times in all seasons. It has lots of windows with beautiful views on all sides. I particularly enjoyed waking up early in the morning and watching for deer to come out to feed. I have also seen moose and foxes in the meadow. I attended Christmas Eve services at the little village church with the snow floating down, eaten at the local restaurant, and shopped at the local stores. It was all a very peaceful, lovely experience.
