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 stay for a while in our quiet, comfortable Civil War-era Greek Revival 18-room farmhouse. You will experience a well-run small inn. Guest living rooms, kitchen, sunroom and entrances are separate from the owner's quarters - yet we are quite accessible whenever you need us.

Pie in the Sky is located in the middle of the rich 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 10 minutes away.

Facilities
     You may want to 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 just a single or a double room with shared bath. All rooms overlook the fields and gardens. Come visit 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. Please call for details about the spaces available.
Wireless Access
We are wired !

Retreats at Pie in the Sky
We have been working with Windcall Institute and Common Council Foundation to provide retreat services to long - time activists.
Our most recent retreat in February 2014 was for a group of women exploring personal growth combined with awareness of nature in winter.

We welcome the chance to host other retreats.
In the past 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. See link Retreats at Pie in the Sky Farm

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 hill to visit a large beaver meadow and bird sanctuary (where moose occasionally appear in the spring).   Go feed the sheep outside the barn -- Or, in winter season, go sledding, snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing on our 100 plus acres. Often, there are excellent lightly groomed trails off the snow machine trail that runs back thru the land.  You can ski, or in summer, walk, open meadows, slopes, or down more challenging runs thru the woods and be off in nature completely by yourself, in quiet so deep you can hear a snowflake drop.

Wireless Access
And if you feel you must work, bring your laptop: We are wired!

Depending on the season: Help us out in the vegetable garden or orchard. Take walks 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. Or, do absolutely nothing but read a book, enjoy the views and the quiet.

Massage therapy
Or we'll assist you in arranging ahead for a massage with one of the four highly qualified massage therapists. Massage services available either at Pie in the Sky or at home studios of nearby therapists.

Who We Are
     The two of us fell in love and then fell in love with the land at Pie-in-the-Sky, where we came to live in 1985. Though we have career backgrounds as academics, we are jack-of-all-trades sorts who like to practice some of the old crafts such as maple syrup, cider and beer making, sewing, knitting, quilt making, jelly making, fruit preserving, and canning the products of our large garden. Our conversational interests turn to history, anthropology, politics, literature, environmentalism, and travel. We live with a couple of cats in a separate wing of the farmhouse from the guest quarters.


      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.

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.

Meetings      Inquiries about booking the use of our various spaces for small to medium-sized meetings are also welcome. We can arrange luncheon catering for your events.
