Hi, we're Dave & Francesca!

Hi & 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. In addition, we are inspected & licensed by the State of Vermont & your health & safety, as well as your enjoyment & comfort, are top priorities for us.
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 and 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 love to travel & are fortunate to have traveled in nearly 40 countries so far, enjoying the people & all the various cultures.
We do maintain part-time "outside" careers. Francesca was the Director of Vemont's Northeast Kingdom Travel & Toursim Association for many years, but is now semi-retired & works as a mosaic artist & graphic designer at Studio Fresca & teaches part-time at nearby Burke Mountain Academy. We do offer special packages & 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, is a licensed pilot, likes to cook & loves to surf. He is the head Chef for Hearty's, a Vermont licensed catering & take-out food service.
We put effort into making our guests comfortable & ensuring an enjoyable visit, so please contact us with any questions!

What a wonderful place away from it all!

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!
