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 Killington Area

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... : )

Lovely Country Home

  • 5 of 5

I actually stayed here last Spring, but embarrassingly forgot to write a review in a timely manner! The house itself felt huge (we live in an urban-suburban area condo), so us two humans and two 40-lb. dogs were very comfortable. The house and property were very private, quiet, and relaxing, which is what we desired for our vacation. The master bedroom was spacious with a very comfortable bed and bedding. It was great to feel like we were out in the country, but still have access wifi and Netflix! We really enjoyed taking walks on the road the house is off of. We saw several horses, a donkey, and got waves from friendly neighbors on our daily walks. It was also great to have the BBQ outside. The owner was very responsive and left a lot of great information with directions for hiking and various things to do in the area. The property is not far from Green Mountain College, where there is a little town with some small shops. The only downside of our stay was that there were carpenter ants in the kitchen, but I suppose that's to be expected in the countryside during the warmer months. All in all, we had a lovely time during our stay.

Wonderful rural location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property at night and found it to be warm and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen stocked with necessities. The next morning in daylight, we were able to appreciate the beauty of the surroundings and even though we had a few rainy days, we were able to explore the property. There were some horses boarding in the field which was an extra treat to see. Only wish the weather had been better and our stay longer to explore more. The house is located fairly close to Main Street in Poultney and Green Mountain College where we were visiting a student. We came in from the Burlington area and the navigator took us along back roads for quite a while which was an adventure in itself in the dark (had to wait for goats to move out of the way) but getting into Poultney the next day from the house was very easy. The wifi worked fine and Barbara was a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's Response: I should mention that we board horses in the field near our house. The horses are far enough away, not visible from house that you are not bothered by flies or danger to dogs or children. They are fun to watch and if you are familiar with horses, you are welcome to feed them carrots if they will come to you. If you are not familiar with horses, please don't try and feed or pet them. You are welcome to hike our 100 acres, we give you a map in the house book so you do not get lost

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.
