My mother and I were traveling through the New England states and didn't want to miss the mountains in Vermont and to check out a maple sugar farm. I chose Johnnycake Flats through the on-line reviews. It was a beautiful drive though it was still quite cold. We were met first by their dogs Brumby and Lila and then by the owner with hot apple cider, coffe and cookies. The owner was very gracious and interesting, the room was roomy and comfortable though all the rooms were upstairs - we had help carrying our bags up. The was a large living area downstairs with fireplace, books and reading areas. The continental breakfast was generous and the owner's homemade granola was delicious.

Centrally located and convenient to hiking, bicycling, skiing, and Vermont craft beer touring. Snowshoeing can be done on the property!
