Caravan Sonnet: Wildflower Inn (Lyndonville, Vermont)

Wildflower Inn (Lyndonville, Vermont)

Today I am so excited to share with y'all about the trip that my mom and I took to the Wildflower Inn at the beginning of May. I know many of you saw the pictures on my IG feed of our time there and remarked how gorgeous it was. It is truly one of the most beautiful places in Vermont and the New England area that I have ever seen.

The Wildflower Inn is located in Lyndonville, Vermont and is nestled into the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The beautiful 300 acres that the Inn sits looks like a postcard and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. The Inn has been recognized by Yankee Magazine's Travel Guide to New England, New England Travel and Life, Vermont Magazine, and National Geographic Traveler. 
We arrived in the early evening hours on Monday night after treatment at the hospital and were immediately struck by the peace and quiet that surrounded the property. As I shared on IG it took us only a few seconds to quickly fall in love with the property. After we checked in we got settled into our suite and we were simply in awe of the surrounding beauty that we saw. 
We stayed in the Vail Suite which was lovely(you can read more about my review of the Vail Suite HERE). As we headed to bed that night we were truly caught up in the beauty that we could see from our windows. 
The next morning we awoke to a cloudy and cool day that seemed to only enhance the beauty that surrounds the Wildflower Inn in the Northeast Kingdom. 
After getting ready for the day we headed over for breakfast at Juniper's (the on site restaurant at the Wildflower Inn). You can read more about Juniper's HERE! If you stay at the Wildflower Inn then breakfast is included with your stay, but you can also simply go to eat at Juniper's too on the weekend. Dinner is served on Tuesday through Saturday and one of the things that I was particularly thrilled to learn was that Juniper's carries a gluten free menu! Want to make a reservation? You can find out more on the Juniper's website HERE.
After breakfast my mom and I were delighted to be given a tour of the Wildflower Inn property and the chance to learn more about the different things that are offered. It was so fascinating to learn more about the history of the Inn and to see how over the years things have evolved and changed since the Inn opened in 1984.
One of the things that has grown and evolved is the development of mountain biking throughout the northeast kingdom trails and the Kingdom Experiences company that is on site on the property. I was truly honored that Caitlin and Collin spent time patiently answering lots of my questions that I asked about Mountain Biking. 
I am going to be completely honest with y'all. I love biking, I always have. But when I was researching information about mountain biking before going on this trip I really envisioned that mountain biking was only for those who were big and strong and loved flying over hills and rocks and being airborne most of the time. Let's be real. Mountain biking to me seems like an extreme sport where Rebecca could die. *hahaha* All of the videos on YouTube that I chose to watch seemed to reinforce this belief so I was completely skeptical as I met Caitlin and Collin that someone like me could ever even do mountain biking. 
Y'all. I could not have been more wrong. By the time that we finished our conversation I was literally ready to sign up for lessons on the spot. I was amazed to learn all of the different things that Kingdom Experiences provides including instruction from qualified teachers, opportunities for smaller groups (including a woman's only group), and even one-on-one instruction. 

I am planning on sharing an entire post about Kingdom Experiences and what I learned about mountain biking in the future, but suffice it to say that as I shared on IG, learning mountain biking has been added to the bucket list
As we continued our tour and hiked along the property we were absolutely blown away by the stunning and gorgeous views. In addition to the Mountain Biking that is offered at the Inn through Kingdom Experiences there is also lots of other activities that make this Inn unique. The location and setting near Burke Mountain makes this an excellent place to stay for those that are ski-lovers in the winter time. Not into skiing? Have y'all heard of fat biking? It was completely new to me but so fascinating to learn about! 

But the property is unique and beautiful beyond what it offers in the way of physical activities. The stunning views and those on staff truly make the Wildflower Inn what it is and somehow that just adds to the magic of the Wildflower Inn.
Wherever you walked you were surrounded by 360 views of the Northeast Kingdom mountains. 
Our stay at the Wildflower Inn was absolutely wonderful. Even a month later my mom and I continue to talk about how restful and peaceful the property is and how welcoming everyone on staff was. You could tell that there is a closeness and a warm and welcoming atmosphere that is throughout the community. It truly welcomes you in and is wonderful and we would love to go back.
