Perfect for visitors to Middlebury College and the Green Mts., Cornwall Orchards is a comfortable, two-hundred-year-old Vermont farmhouse impeccably re-designed (in the 1990's) to be a 4-room bed and breakfast. We serve our guests a hot breakfast using fresh organic or local Vermont ingredients. This newly decorated room is charming and colorful. If we know ahead, we can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Travelers from all backgrounds will feel welcome and safe here.
On a college tour? Visiting historic sites? Stay with us. Your first floor Queen room off the living room has its own vestibule/mini-parlor, ensuring your privacy. Wake up to a view through the trees of the Green Mountains to the east. In the morning relax on the deck with your coffee and look out on our hilly meadow with heritage apple trees, one of the last remaining stands of the Witherell family's huge orchard planted in 1910. The Adirondack Mountains peek through the Norway Spruce trees beyond to the west. Feel free to wander in the garden, out back, or in the woods.
Guests are welcome to read, play games, and work on their laptops in the living room or at the dining room table.
We will give you keys to the house. We are a small and trusting bed and breakfast: the rooms do not have individual keys. The second floor has two additional guest rooms and a private owner's quarters. The first-floor kitchen area and the fridge are not for guest use.
Quiet after ten o'clock PM. Bring slippers-we have soft pine floors-so shoes off. We are not set up for dogs. No exceptions, sorry. Let us know if you are a vegetarian or have other dietary needs; bring your own toiletries-we provide Vermont Soap Company soap. Email if any questions, we're here to help!
Need a map? Ideas for dinner? Where to take a walk, do your laundry, or get the best cup of coffee in Vermont? Ask us anything. We hope we can answer your questions.
This year my husband and I have rejuvenated and reimagined a much-loved bed and breakfast in Cornwall, Vermont. Addison County has a little bit of everything that matters to us. We are excited to join Vermont’s "buy local" and food economies as well as Champlain Valley's regional tourism.
