Lisa who runs the b and b was a delight to deal with. This came across in her emails prior to the visit. The b and b has five guestrooms (I believe). We stayed in the largest and only one with an ensuite bathroom. The smaller rooms had more character and were decorated better than the large room. The common room is large and tidy. The breakfast area is nice and the breakfasts are very good. Lisa kept bringing food out. One morning we had banana nut pancakes and the next day French toast. This is along with fresh coffee cake, cereals, fruit etc. Lisa does a fantastic job. You can walk around the farm and in the adjoining woods. This is a great location as it is quiet and only a few miles from shops and restaurants.This is a great place to stay if you are interested in biking/hiking the Missiquoi trail.
The room we stayed in and bathroom are in need of a makeover. There is a tv with very limited reception. It's time for the owner to fix the exterior of the house (when you drive up you immediately notice shutters falling apart and a bit of a hodgepodge mess) and update some of the interior.
The price is right and I would definitely recommend staying at Berkson Farm.
