Milfiori is a lovely restored farmhouse that was built in 1861. The historic country retreat is now available as a vacation rental and was the site of our luncheon after the Outer Aisle food garden tour.
The gardens surrounding the home are beautifully designed to display a different vista around every corner.
A wrap-around porch is chock full of comfy seating.
Recycled art sculpture provides a focal point in the garden.
Fresh water in the handcrafted birdbath assures a steady stream of avian visitors.
Some of the art is hidden way in the back of the property.
The old barn is truly picturesque.
My favorite thing about this garden is that weathered Adirondacks seating is popped into a shady spot every which way you turn. In the shade of the beautiful tree,
under a grape arbor,
in the shade of another majestic tree,
or, an alternative of the garden swing with a magnificent view back into the property. Perfect for curling up with a good book, making progress with a knitting project or browsing on your iPad.
This arbor must be a knockout when the wisteria is blooming in spring. There’s so much to do here between town and the mountains – Milfiori offers the perfect place for a vacation stay.
