About Beth Emmerick

Innisfree is owned by a group of trustees. I am the managing trustee and live in the house next door.

Why Beth Emmerick chose Strafford

Innisfree was purchased by my grandmother over 70 years ago. Family members have been enjoying the property ever since. It is spacious, comfortable and perfect for group/family gatherings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at Beth's home, our bed was super comfortable, the room was really beautiful, and the house is very nice. Beth and mike are very friendly, although we barely saw them while we were there since we were out wandering in the parks. The area is perfect, about an hour away from all the places we visited. This place is perfect for a vacation home. There is everything you need, and all you have to bring with you is food and beverage. I totally recommend staying here. :)

The property was in a beautiful location, great views, great house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. There were 9 of us, including a 3 yr old, and the house had enough space for all. We enjoyed playing croquet a couple of times on the front lawn. We could all fit around the big table for meals or games, or cards, and there were comfy chairs and couches for relaxing. It was nice to just sit on the little patio and look at the landscape, have a quiet moment.

The host was also available to answer questions, and provided extras: milk, juice, condiments, etc., and was very nice.

Comfortable family home

  • 5 of 5

Two of my college friends and I, along with our families, rented this place for a few days during our Dartmouth reunion. Our hosts, Beth and her husband, were very kind and helpful, with her husband even giving us assistance when our rental car had a flat tire and we had to figure out where to get it fixed on a Saturday morning in June.

The house itself has ample sleeping area, a spacious dining area attached to the kitchen, and a sitting room that looks out onto the lawn and the beautiful landscaping out front. At night, you can see so many stars, because the house is away from city glow. The one minor downside was that it was a little further from Dartmouth's campus that was convenient at times, but the accommodation itself was great!

We had a group of women friends going to the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horseman Int'l that was held locally. Beth met us with a warm greeting and some delicious homemade brownies. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials for breakfast and then some. The home was comfortable and the views stunning.

The house was very clean and so spacious. Love the open kitchen, living room and dining room. We could all be together and hang out. The kitchen had everything you could ever need. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay.

Wedding Reunion Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of eight had a lovely get-together at Innisfree while gathering for a nearby wedding. Plenty of room for everyone, lots of conveniences, fireplace and beautiful green lawn.

Very easy to book and communication with owners was warm and welcoming.

Fantastic Getaway Home in the Beautiful Vermont Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 3-day stay at Innisfree. The property is old and beautiful, and the house is spacious, well-appointed and has great character. The bed I slept in was the most comfortable I have ever visited - be it hotel or rental. Views to the surrounding rolling green mountains are spectacular, and the large lawn area was ideal for the badminton, volleyball, croquet and bocce that was provided. Beth the owner was wonderful - she made sure we were settled in, and even baked and brought us some delicious cookies. We couldn't have had a more perfect and relaxing stay in the beautiful Vermont countryside, and we will definitely be coming back!
