Come listen to the quiet!
Located above a small wooded glen, The Hidden Garden's Bed & Breakfast on Lewis Creek Road is a great getaway for adults visiting Vermont's Champlain Valley and Green Mountains.
Twenty minutes from Burlington and 30 minutes from Middlebury, it is within easy distance of area colleges, Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, the Burlington Marketplace and Waterfront, as well as many other historical and sightseeing places of interest.
Our contemporary large-timbered Post & Beam home with vaulted ceilings is surrounded by 26 acres of woods and gardens. The property borders on over 120 acres of protected natural habitat. These conserved lands have hiking trails that are connected to gravel and paved roads for walking, jogging, bird watching and other quiet outdoor activities. Several golf courses are nearby as well as streams for fishing.
Be prepared for a joyous greeting by our friendly tail wagging Labrador Retrievers. They love company and hope the feeling is reciprocal!

Our ever-evolving private gardens are considered to be among Vermont's largest and are in color continuously from
April until winter. Carved out of woods and wetlands, this very original garden is laid out on 2 levels.
The Upper Garden
surrounds the house and includes a lavish display of spring bulbs and flowering shrubs. Curving paths wind through an extensive collection of varied plantings including hostas, shrubs, and perennials and then to open lawn. Beautiful conifers and other specimens make the gardens a year round delight. Sit in the sunken wall garden and listen to the tumble of water from the fountain. The ornamental fish and frogs will amuse you. The stonework will impress you!
The Lower Garden
is reached by passing a terraced wall garden. Stroll down woodland paths under a canopy of mature evergreens, underplanted with woodland flowers, ferns, and shrubs, to reach the trout pond at "camp" - a wonderful place to listen to the quiet, be peaceful and let your mind and body relax and forget the stress of your daily life. Camp can't be explainedâ€”it must be experienced.
Here collections of heather, ornamental grasses, damp-loving plants, conifers, and waterlilies have transformed a meadow into an abundant garden embracing a reflecting pond, a trout pond, and "camp," all enclosed in a canyon of woods.
