our guests are simply the best
What they have to say.


Brad, NH, October 2023
This is a great old farmhouse and the guest accommodations are comfortable and exactly as expected from a 200 year old structure. Tea room is comfy, bathroom clean and spacious and the room was very clean and comfortable. Vance made carrot cake with tea and a light breakfast. Short drive to a nice trail for a 4 mile walk or run. Cool spot.

Vance was friendly and helpful, and his place is a lovely old farmhouse. He loaned me a charger for my dead phone and was amenable to our changing arrival times (we encountered rain and our motorcycle travels took longer than expected). My son and I stayed in the room with two single beds (many other places we looked at only had the option of a shared bed). The parking was easy, the breakfast was beautifully laid out and delicious, the bathroom and bedroom were clean and spacious (w/ shampoo and soap available), and the bedroom had air conditioning, which we used. The art on the walls, especially in the breakfast room, reminded me of an artist friend’s apartment in Italy. We walked to the next-door park that had a lake. If we had taken a longer walk, we could have walked to the downtown - it’s close.

The farmhouse is beautiful and easy to find, Vance was super flexible on check-in, and there was a wonderful breakfast waiting for me in the morning at the time I requested. All in all a peaceful and serene environment. Highly recommend!

What a good decision to hold one of the Growing A New Heart retreats at Bird Hill Farm! Of all the retreat centers large and small that I have partnered with, Vance was the most attuned retreat host. Not only was the space accommodating—and embracing, a perfect container for the work, the food was delicious and nourishing and respectful of the differing food needs. Bird Hill Farm is filled with beauty. Beautiful touches, moving art, spaces that foster trust. I think this is because Vance has all those qualities and so the experience reflects him: he fosters trust; he is reflective and responsive. He is nurturing and unintrusive. All the participants talked to me about this, how healing his presence is, how gracious the space is. Without hesitation, I recommend holding you retreats and events at Bird Hill Farm.

Vance was very accommodating with an early checking. The breakfast was very good and he also accommodate our special vegan meal request. We were in town for a family reunion and if we ever go back to Ware, we will see if the Bird Hill Farm is available. Thank you, Vance.

Glenn, Fort Lauderdale, July 2023Bird Hill Farm is a beautiful place to stay. Vance is always friendly, helpful and considerate. He’s always receptive to your requests and will help in every way he can. If you haven’t already stayed here and not familiar to his hospitality, I highly recommend you stay!

As a fly fisherman fishing the Swift River several times a year and driving about 1hr 20mins I’ve been looking for a B&B to stay overnight. Well, I am so pleased to find and experience the Bird Hill Farm B&B and it’s host, Vance who made me welcomed and comfortable during my stay with a very nice breakfast in the morning before my day on the Swift River trying to catch those beautiful elusive trout. I’m now planning my next fishing trip to the Swift and will definitely call Vance for a room at the BHF.

Jennifer, PA, August 2023
If possible, I’d rate this stay six stars! The space was charming and clean and Vance was a fantastic host. He even had tea and cake waiting for us upon our evening arrival. The bed was incredibly comfortable too.

ERIKA, Pathfinder High School
Vance was an amazing host. He was warm, genuine, funny, and such a pleasure to work with. He made us feel very welcome on his beautiful property. We had a delicious multi-course breakfast and a scrumptious lunch. It was the perfect space for our small team retreat. Thank you for a wonderful day!
