We have been staying regularly – at least six times - at Firefly B&B for years, Spring, Summer and Fall. This year we’re here for ten days restful vacation.
We travel quite a bit and always try to find a friendly B&B or Inn rather than staying at a chain motel. Expensive, economical and in between - all kinds in many locations. We like them all but have never made any other B&B a destination for a vacation – which should tell you something about the high regard in which we hold Firefly B&B and its proprietress, Issy Link.
Her home is cozy and quiet, nestled in the foothills of Mount Abraham, just South of Appalachian Gap Road (Rte. 17) which takes you over the mountain (~ a half hour) to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. Her horses graze in the pasture surrounding her home and the spring fed swimming pond is refreshing and inviting for swimming – or for just hanging out in the sun.
Issy has a great sense of humor, is a caring hostess and a talented chef. Her breakfasts are varied, filling and delicious.
We’ve read the reviews posted by Peconic Bill, AlpineTrekker and equinevet222. The first two are worth reading and quite accurate - except there is the opportunity for plenty of romance (including enough privacy for skinny dipping and lovely walks under the amazing stars) at Issy’s place and lots of young singles have enjoyed stays there.
Why equinetrekker222 and her husband would spend only two hours there and she would then take the time to write that overly long, uninformed and hostile review, including the irrelevant bragging about the shape her horses are in, is a total mystery.
If you’re looking for a beautifully located place to stay, run by a lovely, hardworking lady who cares about her guests and charges very reasonable prices for her rooms, you won’t go wrong here.
