Private Guesthouse Accommodations on 400 Scenic Acres
Pure Vermont Gold® Maple Syrup Products

We are a family-owned facility offering the splendor of Vermont's Green Mountains as you relax in the quiet comfort and privacy of our well-appointed guesthouse with fully equipped kitchen, high speed Internet access, cell phone reception, and satellite TV.  We are conveniently located in Central Vermont on 400 scenic acres in Northfield, home to Norwich University and five covered bridges.  Sweet Retreat is just south of Montpelier, the Vermont State Capitol,  40 minutes from Sugarbush Resort, Bolton Valley, and Stowe ski areas, and an hour from Burlington International Airport. The guesthouse is perfect for short or extended vacations, honeymoon getaways, or small business meetings.

Here you may explore the outdoors in every season with miles of private trails for walking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing- just out the front door! 

Spend time by the beaver pond bird watching or at the barn with our three teams of Brown Swiss oxen. 

For a real thrill, arrange to take an ox-drawn cart or sleigh ride!

During sugaring season, learn how we make Pure Vermont Gold® maple syrup in our state-of-the art sugarhouse in the woods. 

Enjoy complementary maple syrup during your stay and be sure to take some home to delight family and friends. Our Pure Vermont Gold is available in half-pints, pints, quarts, and gallons. Give us a call and we’ll ship it anywhere you like!

Sweet Retreat also specializes in custom-etched Italian glass bottles. Filled with our maple syrup, they make impressive individual and corporate gifts. Our personalized mini-basquaise bottles make delicious wedding and party favors.

Please enjoy your visit to our web site, and feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions about our facilities or products.

Thanks for Visiting!
