Wildflower Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Lyndonville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2011

We've only done day trips to ski at Burke Mountain in the past and had never driven beyond the main roads to the mountain. I was surprized and delighted at what we found on Darling Hill Road in mid-October. Beautiful farms and a chapel dedicated to bikers (built by the Wildflower owners' family), rolling hills and gorgeous views, and amazing mountain bike paths.

The Wildflower Inn seemed more a family destination than a romantic getaway for an anniversary, but I sensed that in reading about it and booked a room for two nights anyway. Our room was in a building across the street from the inn and had a nice little balcony looking up toward "Heaven's Bench" - a well-known spot on one of the bike trails. The room itself was nothing special - older furniture, older design - had kind of a ski vibe. The bathroom was nothing special either. This is not the place for New Yorkers looking to revel in countryside chic.

That said, however, the Wildflower has a rare warmth - something that I don't usually note or seek out in travel, but noteworthy enough that it made all the difference to me. The servers were great at the inn's restaurant and the desk staff went out of their way to try to help me locate a few local farms who were participating in an open farm event for Cabot cheese. And the food was good - I loved the breakfasts, the coffee was good, and the dinner we had there was also good. There was a fire going in the wood stove in the family room and cookies and hot cider available in the afternoon. What's not to like?

We spent 4 weeks over Dec/Jan 2010/11 travelling around the East coast as part of our Honeymoon. New York, Boston, Vermont, Florida and a Cruise around the Bahamas... Our favourite part of the trip was the 4 days we spent in the Widlflower Inn over Christmas. I've seen other reviews that hark on about the old décor in the rooms, slow WiFi, no TV's etc. To me that is what makes this such an amazing location! It brought me back to my childhood when rooms had character and charm, WiFi didn't exist and TV's where few and far between. Why on earth would you need a TV when you have views like that all around you. There's a great book shop in the village, grab a book and relax. Hang out at the open fire at the guest house and talk to fellow travellers, or as we did head on up to Burke mountain and get your Ski on... The staff at the Inn where fantastic, they where so helpfull. The food was great, the blueberry muffins, pancakes where faaaaaar too tasty. We love this place and are hoping to return in the very near future.

Won this overnight at a staff end of season party. So glad I did. My husband and I spent an early anniversary getaway here. Location is gorgeous, rooms are very nice and food is exceptional. Hope to get another chance to visit here again.

As other people note, this hotel is set in one of the loveliest spots in America. It is right on fantastic mountain biking (and hiking trails) and the people that run the hotel are helpful and friendly. However, the rooms are a bit shabby and could use some updating and breakfast is served painfully slowly (which is fine if you want to linger but not if you want to be out on the trails). It is also pretty expensive. I have stayed before and will again, but the location is definitely better than the hotel itself.

A truly beautiful place for a short stay during a Fall foliage tour! Panoramic views, delicious meals (both breakfast and dinner), attentive staff and large, decent rooms (in the annex across the road) make The Wildflower Inn worth another visit. Jim and Mary o"Reilly have raised 8 children here and make you feel right at home as part of their family.
