The Wildflower Farm

Early Spring At Wildflower Farm

Early Spring At Wildflower Farm

Wildflower Farm, is a reconstruction of a house in olde Sturbridge Village commonly known as The Parsonage that dates back to the 1740s. Salt box in style it boasts a max of 2 available rooms.

This is where we finally chose to end our nomadic gypsy travels after years of wandering the planet. Now, we open our home up to other nomad travelers, city folk looking for a little country charm, romantics seeking a get away, historians that want to feel the nostalgia of ages gone by, and of course those who just want a few days to hide away outside their normal life. I carried this dream with me for nearly a decade all over the world, and now I get to live in it and share it. This place has a special magic all it’s own and each day I am here, I sleep better and feel more alive and peaceful. Welcome to Wildflower Farm.

Our Rooms

Our rooms range in price from $75 to $115-$130, depending on the night season and bed size. Winter price is $65, $75 on weekends, and only one of our two rooms is available.

The Foxglove Room

The Foxglove room offers lovely views of the forest, gardens, and the long drive through the fruit trees from the road some distance away. A comfy queen bed and lovely decor that pulls the character of the primitive and rustic old fashioned homestead into a warm cozy room. This room also offers a dresser, a closet and a beautiful antique rocking chair, and some simple lovely wall decor. Towels are set out and plush soft bathrobes hang on the back of the door. This room offers a private bathroom three seasons of the year. Our winter pricing reflects our winter situation during which the bathroom is shared with one other person.

The Grounds

The salt box colonial, sits on five acres of partially cleared and partially wooded land. There is a lovely brick patio, and an herb garden, the vegie garden, a tiny pumpkin patch and the little strawberry patch. There is a lovely chicken coop, a goat shed and a gardening shed, forested all around. Berry bushes and trees, though most of our gardens are edible some of them are full of flowers. We are located at the end of a private dirt and gravel road lined with fruit trees, set back from the street. We are surrounded by the tall trees of the woods all around us. Our neighbors are a little ways off allowing for privacy though they can be seen in bits and pieces at a distance through the trees, and some not at all. Even outside we try to keep the old fashioned charm of the place alive. Visit our goats, collect some eggs to take home with you at no added cost, Enjoy all the edibles in the garden at no additional cost. Smell the flowers and enjoy the soft romance of a time long ago. Relax and leave the city behind you…. This is a romantic country farm setting within one hour of Boston, an excellent location for small well managed events.

Things To Do

Massachusetts, is the oldest US state and has a great deal of culture and history to explore. Close to here, within 15 minutes of driving, you will find places such as Fruit lands Museum where Louisa May Alcott the writer of Little Women grew up in a transcendentalist community created by her father. Historical Harvard and Bolton are here, go apple picking, hiking, horseback riding, or biking in the area. Skiing is quite close. The Russian Icon museum in Clinton is nice, or even just go take a quick look through the Berlin Town Hall at all the photos of the men who went off to fight the civil war. Drive around and enjoy some of the nicest foliage in New England, or check out some of the local farms. Go antiquing at Counting Sheep Antiques and some of the other local antique shops in the area. There is also the relics of an old Shaker community that you can drive past and look at. Nashoba Winery is also just a short hop away.

Drive a bit further about 35 minutes to see The Freedom Trail and historical Concord, visit the Minute Man statue in Lexington. Drop by Longfellow’s Way Side Inn in Sudbury, or go all the way into Cambridge about an hour away to see Harvard and Harvard Square and all the other interesting museums, history, and culture that Cambridge has to offer. Or go all the way into Boston, check out The Gardener Museum, Museum of Science, The Aquarium, Boston Gardens and The Duck Tour, and so very much more.

Or, drive an hour on a day trip to the ocean, Newburyport and Plum Island are fantastic. Go whale watching!

45 minutes to Sturbridge Village, under an hour to American Stonehenge, or in just scraping over an hour visit to the witches in Olde Salem Village.

Everywhere is very easy to get to because we are right by 62, 117, and 495.

What Our Guests Are Saying About Us!

“My hosts, Amanda and Antti Gynther greeted me warmly and were genuinely happy to help me settle in. I was shown to a lovely room on the second floor, which was decorated with a patchwork quilt and shams. White bath towels and a terry cloth robe awaited me. There was even a small maple candy on my pillow! The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. I found everything very orderly and clean. In the morning, Amanda made me breakfast – scrambled eggs fresh from the Farm’s hens. The following day she prepared a simple breakfast. I am looking forward to returning in the winter and having breakfast close to the wood stove. Wildflower Farm is fun place for animal lovers. There are goats and chickens, cats and dogs, and even a beehive set a good distance from the house. The dogs were very cute and funny – especially the big one, Yoda. I think any animal lover would enjoy staying there very much. My stay at Wildflower Farm exceeded my expectations and I hope to return this winter when I am again in the area.”

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Wildflower. The home is absolutely beautiful, and Amanda and her four-legged friends were great company. Breakfast was superb, fresh, organic, and local:  freshly prepared muffins and bread. The bedroom and bath were immaculate, and the bed was super comfy.”

 

“We had such a wonderful time in wildflower farm with Amanda and Antti being so friendly and interested hosts. The dogs are so peaceful and we loved staying in a very charming and tasteful home with a history, that is so far away from a dead motel room. The breakfast muffins were delicious and Amanda’s skills as a tourist guide also were awesome. Even an electricity outage one morning couldn’t damp her spirits and we had a wonderful (cold) breakfast with candle-light.
All in all we can highly recommend this accommodation and we’d love to return some day when visiting this wonderful region again.”

“My stay at Wildflower Farm was relaxing and fun. The house and farm are beautiful, breakfast was fresh and delicious, and the room was very comfortable. I’m very grateful to the hosts who went out of their way to accommodate a slightly earlier breakfast and provide helpful hints on where to grab a meal. ”

 

“It was great! Very clean and a beautiful quaint space with fast internet to boot.”
