JAC Patrissi, founder, Growing A New Heart
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.
The chalk paint class was so much fun. I painted a sign and my cousin painted a bookcase. Vance did a great job of showing us techniques and the setting is fabulous. Highly recommend this class.

You can always count on Vance to make you feel welcome in his home. If you need something, you only need to ask, he’ll make every attempt to make it happen.

Vance was a great host. We got in much later than expected because of car trouble, but Vance waited up for us and was very understanding. The space was charming –

Vance provided a warm welcome upon arrival. He was a great host, making wonderful breakfasts, nice conversation, and good tips for the area. The room was clean, well-

Vance is a wonderful host! He made me feel welcome and right at home. The renovated country Farmhouse, bedrooms and bath are beautifully decorated, modern, comfortable, clean, and chock full of amenities. Vance is also a tremendous chef/cook; breakfast was deliciously yummy and healthy too. I stayed here overnight when traveling from Stockbridge to Boston and highly recommend visiting this B&B whether ‘Ware’ is your final destination or as stopover in between!”

“Vance was friendly and accommodating, and the farmhouse was (for lack of a better word) cool. The decor was rustic, old fashioned and artsy, but the house was still functional. I did not get a chance to fully enjoy my stay –
“Vance was a wonderful host. Even though we arrived late, Vance was warm and welcoming. Our room was lovely, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean and stylish, and the bathroom was bright and huge! We came for the Brimfield sale, and despite our very early morning starts, Vance prepared super yummy smoothies for us to take in the car. The entire property is charming, from the house to the barns and paddocks. The park next door has a wonderful walking trail. Vance and his two (very well behaved!) dogs made our stay feel more like visiting a friend. We will be back, again and again!”

Clean, peaceful, beautiful. Enjoyed our 5 days stay with Vance. Great host. Knows how too cook a mean breakfast! Very accommodating with your schedule. Home does have multiple rooms for guests to stay with one bathroom to share between guests. Great place if your looking to unplug, does have the convince of wifi. Has the two sweetest little dogs. Would definitely recommend!

Vance was born to host. His warm personality and genuine hospitality left me relaxed and revitalized. The breakfast and healthy smoothies he made me were delicious. The tub was relaxing and the room was so serene. I had a great time playing with his little dogs and enjoying the scenery. I enjoyed myself so much, I didn’t want to leave.”
