Enjoyed our stay until we got home and both of us found bug bites... Still uncertain what these bug bites are. The property is relatively clean but there is mold on the bathroom ceiling and a deep clean is certainly needed as there were minor stains on the carpet and scuffs on the wall. Breakfast was made-to-order and delicious!

The inn keeper was actually out on errands when we arrived and had our room key on the counter for us with a sweet little note. Our room was so cute and quaint, everyone from the inn was friendly and the breakfast options were delicious both days. Very quiet place and we'll definitely be back in the spring

The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous flowers and nice walkways. The stroll to downtown was enhanced by a farmers market going on every Friday. The TVs are difficult to figure out with multiple remotes, and no info. in the rooms as to how to use them?!? Overall a great place to stay with a wonderful breakfast and helpful staff. We hope to return again! Thank u!

It was fine for the area. Quaint and laid back. Especially okay for the price. As expected it’s creaky and dated. The only real criticism would be the towels-pretty worn out. But comfy bed.

I guess I am used to smaller B&B when the owner is present at breakfast and greets their guests and is interested in how they plan to spend their day. This was run more like a hotel. You order your breakfast and there was no friendly chatting with other guests. I missed the coziness of getting to know the other guests which is usually started by a friendly owner who is interested in setting a warm atmosphere. That is one major reason I stay at B&B to meet fellow travelers....this was lacking. I think this B&B is more suited for weddings. I thought in the small town in Vermont I would have felt more like a guest than a stranger.
