Mount Pleasant is located halfway betweeen Middlebury and Brandon on the edge of the Champlain Valley in Vermont, conveniently located just one mile off of Route 7, yet very secluded.
At one time, this was a typical Vermont hill farm with more rocks than cattle. Except for the steep hillsides, most of the property was cleared for pasture land.
Today most of the 180 acre property is wooded except for the five acres surrounding the house and barn. You can walk the trails which access most of the property, from the summit of Mt. Pleasant to the shores of Mud Pond. It is a wonderful place to come and get away from it all.
Your hosts, Andy and Donna Hutchison, welcome you to their home and place of business. Andy and his father are consulting foresters. They also manage a wholesale Christmas tree operation. The Hutchisons also have a retail shop where local maple syrup producers come to buy their supplies. Donna takes care of most of the operations around the house, from equipment and syrup sales, to operating the Bed and Breakfast.
