Rhoda and Bill Ackerman welcome you to the Devil's Den Farm Homestay Bed and Breakfast located in picturesque Chelsea, Vermont. Our classic New England farmhouse was built in 1921 by the Gilmans, Rhoda's grandparents.
The Gilmans are seventh generation Chelsea residents.
The farm is named in honor of a small cave located on the hillside behind our home. The cave was named "The Devils Den Cave" in the 1800s. During the years before there were buildings on the property; it was a favorite hiking spot for the local boys from town.
The front porch is lined with flower boxes and rocking chairs; as it was during an earlier, simpler time. Grammy Gilman served her ten children afternoon snacks from her rocking chair on this same porch.
We invite you to make yourself at home in in our guest shared country kitchen and sitting room for visiting and watching TV. We have a toy collection for the entertainment of your children.
Our large country kitchen is a perfect place to enjoy our continental breakfast and a visit with other guests or plan your days' schedule. We invite you to make our farm your home base for visiting family and friends. Its' a great place for your family or a couples' vacation.
Reserve all the rooms for a group attending a reunion or wedding in the area.
