About Barbara Venezia

Our family of 4 loves the outdoors, hunting, fishing, snowboarding or hiking. We purchased the 100 acres in Poultney in 1980 and the house was added to the land in 1985. We fenced in 15 acres in 1990 to accommodate our horses. The horses are gone now but we sometimes lend the field to friends and you may see horses there from time to time. Our two children and friends grew up sledding, hiking, camping, swimming in Lake St Catherine and the nearby Poultney River. The VAST trails cross our property and neighbors lent us their snow mobiles to explore all the wonderful trails our area has to offer. Once the children got older snowboarding became their main interest and we purchase a condo nearer to the mountains but wanted to keep our house in Poultney. By renting the house a few weeks a year, we can pay the taxes and some expenses and have the house and land to enjoy a few times a year.

Barbara Venezia purchased this house in 1985

Why Barbara Venezia chose Poultney

Bring your boat, fishing pole, golf clubs and hiking boots. Our property is ideal for anyone who loves to hike (spring, summer, and fall), fish in Lake St. Catherine and golf at the Lake St Catherine Golf Club or just get away from it all. We loved it for the open land and as a place our dogs can run free hiking with us. The lake is not crowded and it was a great place to teach the children to water ski and wake board

What makes this house unique

Poultney is not a tourist area, the town with Green Mountain College as its center is a true Vermont small town. We have locally owned diners, hardware store, and pub and country store. The streets have little traffic; you can always find a place to park downtown. If you need some excitement, take a drive to Manchester Vermont, about 45 minutes from the house. There you will find many restaurants, outlet store, Lincoln’s family home, upscale shops and plenty of activities including craft fairs, horse shows, auctions and local theater

The dogs LOVED Wildflower Farms....and so did we!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with family and/or friends and one where you can bring your dog(s), we highly recommend Wildflower Farms in Poultney, Vermont. The house is lovely, the grounds are vast and beautiful, and the little town of Poultney was really quite charming. It was a joy for us to be able to spend a week at this home and bring our two dogs. We hiked just about every day on the property, except the one day it rained. The dogs were so happy that they did not want to go home... : )

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this beautiful home for a week in the summer on at least five occasions. There is plenty of room for everyone, even the dog! The dog has enjoyed these weeks in Poultney as much as we have. It's the perfect place to retreat from our usually hectic lives. Poultney is a quaint and welcoming town. We often enjoy attending the Saturday night rodeos at nearby Castelton ranch, as well as horseback riding. Most other attractions are rather far, so you do have to plan on driving quite a bit. The owners have always been easy to communicate with and more than happy to accommodate us with any needs, concerns or questions. Wildflower Farms is a treasured getaway for us and has provided our family with countless priceless moments, photos and memories!

Wildflower farms

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Wildflower Farms with our two kids and our dog for 4th of July Week. It is great to be able to find a place to bring the dog. The surroundings were beautiful. It was a treat to find horses in the field when we went for a walk the first day! The kids and the dog loved having the freedom to roam. The house was a great size. When we first arrived we noticed the AC was not in so we called the owners and they had someone at the house 20 minutes later to install them. The only criticism we have is it seemed like it had been a while since anyone was in the house. The floors and furniture were dusty and the house smelled closed up. I washed all the dished and cooking utensils before we used anything. The bathrooms could have been cleaner. So overall we had a good trip, I just wish they had a cleaning company go through before we arrived.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the house was not as clean as you would have liked. We did and always do have our cleaning team clean the house between tenants. They may have hada busy schedule that week and did not do there usual thorough job. I will mention your review to them and hope they do a better job in the future.

Peaceful Respite in Vermont

  • 5 of 5
Do you need a pause in the noise and bustle of your world? Well, if you do, Wildflower Farms is the place for you!
Recently,my family and I were the fortunate recepients of the peace and serenity that is just one of the qualities of this wonderful home. We had some business in the area, so we rented this comfortable home. It made all the difference.
While the setting, itself, is just lovely, the owners have not forgotten all the "creature comforts" that also make for a relaxing getaway. While we were there, it was quite warm but the ACs kept the home nice and cool. There is also a small den on the first floor with a sofa bed and an attached bath ( with shower) that would be perfect for an individual who might have trouble with the stairs to the second floor. Everything is very clean and in working order.
Due to the intense heat, we could not explore as much of the surrounding countryside as we would have liked to -However, each evening the fireflies put on quite a show! ( One can only imagine the pleasure in an invigorating hike around the property on a crisp, Autumn day!) The house is located on a hill so you have a lovely view. (In the snow you would need a vehicle that could handle the hill.)
I would like to thank the owners for their prompt response to my inquiry and for allowing our rental plans to go so smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with them.
I would love to return to Wildflower Farms!

We had a wonderful stay at Wildflower Farms during August 2009. The house is stunning, comfortable, and set amidst gorgeous surroundings. Poultney proved an ideal location for us, since from there all but the very north east of the state is easily accessible -- and unlike many small towns in Vermont, it has excellent amenities (a proper supermarket, a library with free Wi-Fi, two good restaurants, and a terrific diner for breakfast). It was a truly memorable vacation and we cannot recommend Wildflower Farms highly enough.

Perfect vacation spot for dogs (and their owners!)

  • 5 of 5
We spent our 10-year anniversary trip at Wildflower Farm and brought our 2 Pointers. This was by far the most perfect set-up for dog owners. We always travel with them, but your house was ideal with the indoor HUGE crate which both dogs could fit in, and your outside kennel behind the garage was absolutely secure and perfect for our dogs. We felt comfortable going out all day on our motorcycle and leaving the dogs in the outdoor kennel. Your master bedroom suite is also a perfect set-up. Very spacious. In addition, your kitchen had all the appliances and gadgets we needed.

Also just a quick 5-minute ride to downtown Poultney, and there's a fabulous restaurant -- RedBrick Cucina on Depot Street. Leave room for dessert. FANTASTIC food and service. Wildflower Farm is also conveniently located to tons of sites and shopping like Manchester, VT - great shops. Check out the local breweries throughout Vermont too. Next time we come up, we will come in October for foliage. We were a bit early this time, but enjoyed the weather and scenery anyway.

Owner's Response: The peak foliage season in Vermont changes yearly due to weather conditions. We find that anytime from Oct 1 - Oct 21 is a fantastic time to enjoy our fabulous colors but anytime time spent in Vermont is time well spent. Our highways and byways have virtually no traffic and around every corner is another beautiful site.
