giveaway: a weekend retreat!


This has to be the best giveaway we’ve ever hosted on Mint, and I’m so excited to offer it to you, along with the very generous Amee Farm Lodge.


The giveaway is for a relaxing 2 night stay at Amee Farm Lodge in Vermont with breakfast each morning, a welcome social with light fare, a venue tour with the owners, an amazing farm-to-table dinner, and a range of activities from yoga to snowshoeing to cheese-making. Go, relax, unplug, and just “be.”

Pittsfield, Vermont is a true New England small town with an abundance of activities, energetic or otherwise. Many folks go to Pittsfield to seek out old-fashioned country quiet, savoring the chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, to visit with the farm animals across the road, or to stroll through the village green with a latte from their quintessential Vermont general store.


For those thinking of hosting a farm wedding, this would be the perfect opportunity to visit Amee Farm Lodge and learn more. What a beautiful venue! (And bonus: a pre-wedding getaway for you and your sweetheart.) You could have a three-day celebration, including a rehearsal dinner with fresh foods grown at the farm, a beautiful outdoor ceremony, reception, and farewell brunch, each in a different location on the property. (more info right here)


The details (a $600 value):
• 2 night stay based on availability
• deluxe continental breakfast each morning of your stay
• gift certificate for lunch to Original General Store
• welcome basket/bag from Riverside Farm

Possible activities during your visit include:
• 30+ miles of hiking and biking on the Green Mountain Trails
• yoga classes • show-showing right outside the back door
• skiing at Killington and Pico
• tubing on the Tweed River
• golfing on the Green Mountain National Golf Course
• kayaking and fishing at Kent Pond • on-site massages
• live music & great restaurants in Killington
• and of course, just relaxing by the fire or on the porch at the lodge

    A perfect place for our 30 year anniversary hideaway. Am I too selfish if I don’t share it?

    Wow, what a wonderful getaway! My boyfriend and I are long distance now, so we are always looking for good trips to take together. Since he’s from the east coast this seems just too perfect. What a beautiful place to be.

    I am not sure how the long the trek would take from northern Canada to Amee Farm Lodge, but it would be so worth it!!!!!!

    Kudos to the people at Mint Design for putting such a spectacular, classic Vermont farm like Amee on our radar! It would be a true dream to enjoy all the area has to offer and then return to Amee Farm Lodge as our ‘home’ for a few nights. Or, stay in all day long because that place is amazing!
