Amidst pasture, woods and wetlands and surrounded by working farms, Willow Pond Farm has breathtaking Adirondack and Green Mountain views. The farm borders Shelburne Pond and is a haven for wildflowers, birds and wildlife. Ospreys, hummingbirds, bluebirds, blue heron and wild turkeys are some of the wildlife that roam the farm. 

The house, set among apple trees, romantic rose and perennial gardens has an exceptional view of its own private pond frequented by great blue herons and migrating ducks. Our  two guest rooms are furnished with fine antiques, handmade quilts and oriental and imported rugs. Guests can enjoy true peace and quiet, as we are the last house on Cheesefactory Lane and the entire south side of the house faces our pond and woods. 

The farm is an ideal place for hiking, birdwatching, or strolling through the gardens. We are a ten-minute drive from the Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms and Shelburne Village, as well as UVM, St. Michaels College, Champlain College, Lake Champlain and downtown Burlington.

July 2018 - "What a lovely time my husband & I had at Willow Pond Farm, a beautiful country bed & breakfast! Our hostess, Bettina, was lovely, very welcoming & friendly.  She served delicious breakfasts with lively conversation around a large table shared with other guests, also sharing the interesting history of the family farm.

We highly recommend this B & B and would return in a heartbeat next time we’re in the Burlington area.
