A | The Hill Farm Inn: Family accomodations in Vermont

Mara Gorman - The Mother of All Trips

Hill Farm Inn, Manchester, VermontI’ve done this very drive many times, and when my kids were younger we often stopped overnight on the way. One of our favorite places to stay was at the Hill Farm Inn just outside Manchester, Vermont. This affordable inn offers both suites and cottages that are perfect for families with young kids.

Your children will love seeing the animals in the barn, playing board games on the porch, or going for a nature walk on the lovely trail behind the inn. Rooms come with a full homemade breakfast. If you decide to stay for a few days, you can hike, bike, or swim nearby.

When you hit the road for Burlington, be sure to make a stop at the Vermont Country Store in Weston where your children (and you) will love the jars of candy and the old-fashioned toys and products.
