Beautiful hotel in historic college town
Posted Jul 25, 2016
Elegant brick hotel (built, I believe, in 1827) with extremely affordable rates located virtually on the campus of Middlebury College in western Vermont about 20 miles east of Lake Champlain. Tea, coffee, cookies and light sandwiches served in cozy living room every afternoon at 4. Rooms are spacious, spotless and beautifully appointed with fridge for snacks and cold drinks. I ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel (very good), but the town, which is within walking distance, has numerous other places to choose from. I was visiting my son, who is taking summer classes at Middlebury's famous graduate school of English, called Bread Loaf, an absolutely breathtaking 7 mile car ride up a fairly steep mountain that happens to pass by the home of poet Robert Frost! There is no good reason to stay anywhere else when visiting the town of Middlebury.
