Pie-in-the-Sky Farm
Bed & Breakfast and Retreat
Marshfield, Vermont

      Pie-in-the-Sky Farm Bed & Breakfast and Retreat welcomes you to visit us and to stay for a while in our quiet, comfortable Civil War-era Greek Revival 18-room farmhouse on a traditional Vermont hill farm. You will experience a well-run small inn. Guest bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, sunroom and entrances are separate from the owners' quarters -- yet we are quite accessible whenever you need us.

     Pie-in-the-Sky is located in the middle of the rich environmental and cultural zone of North Central Vermont and perched just on the edge of Vermont's wild and beautiful Northeast Kingdom . Off the road just enough to experience real quiet and to hear the birds sing and the frogs croak, we're actually an easy-find -- only a mile and a third off northern New England's major east-west U.S. Route 2. We're 13 miles from the granite city of Barre , 14 miles from Vermont's capital, Montpelier , and about 20 miles from St. Johnsbury . The up-and-coming localvore food mecca of Hardwick is 15 miles to the north. We are one of only two places to stay close to Cabot with its famous cheese creamery and near to the Groton State Forest with its numerous lakes and trails. Goddard College is just over the hill 10 minutes away.

     All our rooms overlook the fields and gardens. Come stay by the week, by the weekend, or simply for an overnight. Use our facilities for a restful get-away or as a quiet retreat to work on your current project. Reserve at a reasonable rate our full upstairs and downstairs six-room suite with separate entrance which includes three bedrooms, parlor with woodstove, kitchen, two baths, plus a well-stocked library, & hot tub in greenhouse. Or, you may wish to make arrangements to rent a single or a double room with shared bath. Please call for details about the spaces available.

Guest kitchen refrigerator and cabinets stocked with snacks and tea and coffee-making supplies for your own use at any time.   In most seasons you'll find flowers from greenhouse or garden in your room.

Full breakfast served at your convenience early or late in the morning.   As much as we like all-American farm breakfasts, and more gourmet fare, we're used to accommodating all sorts of diets from vegan to macrobiotic to Atkins diet. We are members of Vermont Fresh Network and grow a fair amount of the breakfast fare ourselves.

What to Do at Pie
     Enjoy our spa and greenhouse while gazing out on beautiful views and many gardens. Take a short walk down our front hill to visit a large beaver meadow and bird sanctuary (where moose occasionally appear in the spring). Take walks back on the land to some of the secret corners: The old pond, the maple sugar bush, the Mushroom Woods, the blueberry patch, the open water of the beaver meadow. Depending on the season, help us out in the vegetable garden or orchard. Feed the sheep and ducks. Or, feel free to do absolutely nothing but read a book, enjoy the views and the quiet.

In winter season, you can go sledding, snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing on our 100-plus acres. A groomed snowmobile trail runs across part of our land. Or forge a trail off the beaten track in the woods or fields completely by yourself, in quiet so deep you can almost hear a snowflake drop.

Massage therapy
We can assist you in arranging ahead of your visit for a massage with one of the four highly qualified massage therapists in our neighborhood either here or at their studios.

Wireless Access
And if you feel you must work, bring your laptop: We have WIFI!

Meetings and Retreats
     Inquiries about booking the use of our various spaces for small to medium-sized meetings are welcome. Pie in the Sky has hosted academic groups, funding foundations, massage therapists working retreats, and numerous individual retreats for rest, solitude, and focused creative work. We can arrange luncheon catering for your events.

We also do weddings!

We have been working with Windcall Institute and Common Council Foundation to provide retreats for long-time social change activists.
