Fruitlands Bed and Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Fruitlands is a small, diversified farm / bed and breakfast sitting almost 1900’ atop Thistle Hill in Marshfield, Vermont. Our farm is a bicentennial farm, built in 1976. We practice organic methods. We believe that a quality life calls for planting trees and settling down long enough to watch those trees bear fruit.
Our B&B is 100%+ solar powered...even the hot tub!
"In many ways the true remedy for our hurried 21st Century routines can be found in turning off the beaten path to find new places and to make new friends... if only for a while."
- Dale & Janet Newton
We have Wilderness Systems Pungo 140, 120 and 100 kayaks for rent with paddles and pfd's. You can arrange with us to deliver and pickk up from our many local lakes.
Enjoy Our Hotsprings Spa - 100% Solar Powered
Is there anything better than soaking in our spa while watching for falling stars? Or how about soaking in the spa after a day of kayaking, biking or hiking! And the best part...our spa is 100% solar powered. This view of the spa is from the Alcott Suite deck.
Enjoy a Campfire under the Stars
One of our favorite pastimes is simply building a fire in our outdoor fireplace, having a cookout and lingering lone enough to watch the stars appear. You may hear the loons on the lake, the hermit thrush in the woods and catch a falling star. Wood is supplied! BYO s'mores!!!
Enjoy Our Lake and the Many Others Nearby
Molly's Falls Pond (Marshfield Dam to the locals) is a 2.5 mile long lake just below our B&B. There are no camps, a full boating access and clean, clear Vermont lake water. You will see and hear the many loons that nest and raise their young on this lake. One of the nicest features is an island on the back side that offers wonderful swimming with a sandy beach all around it. If you want to venture just a bit futher, you can visit Peacham Pond, one of the most iconc of Vermont's small lakes. It actually feeds into our lake. The many lakes and ponds of Groton State Forest are just minutes away. Some of those lakes provide wilderness kayaking.
In the photo you will see a small white square in the upper right. That marks our B&B's location. The white triangle marks the island.
Enjoy knowing that Fruitlands is 100% solar powered.
Your stay at Fruitlands will be 100%+ solar powered. Our solar comes from an All Earth Renewables Sun Tracker, a 5.5 Kwh sun-tracking 24-panel array. We also heat and produse hot water with renewables.
Pick Your Own Blueberries and Raspberries
If you visit Fruitlands B&B in July through September, you can treat yourselves to some of the best organic raspberries and blueberries in the NEK. Raspberry & blueberry shortcake anyone?
