Charming Bed & Breakfast!
Absolutely loved this place. Very comfortable beds. Our suite was amazing. Michael and Kevin were very accommodating to my gluten allergy. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. We really enjoyed the decor. It's like you actually stepped back into 1779!

The Ira Allen BNB
Our stay at the Ira Allen House was amazing. The house itself was very quaint, homey and comfortable. The holiday decor, and overall decor, was beautiful. My family of five really enjoyed our stay. The food, from cookies and fruit when we entered the house to the muffins, egg dishes, waffles, and corn beef hash was absolutely delicious and all made with local farm fresh ingredients. The yogurt which was served each morning was so tasty for even non-yogurt eaters! Kevin and Mike were very helpful and friendly hosts. They were able to score us dinner reservations as well as a discount on tickets for the Hildene house. I can't recommend this beautiful old home (1779) enough!
