Innkeeper Chris was very helpful at pointing us to (and then getting us to) restaurants and things that we needed. He was well versed in the history of Ripton as well as the Chipman Inn. Breakfast was DELICIOUS! The rooms were cozy and the TV room was a great plus! We really appreciated our stay at Chipman Inn and would go back if we were ever in the area.

We traveled from Florida to drop our son off at college. Car trouble along the way, Chris told us not to worry and he would be waiting for us when we arrived. Arrival was extremely welcoming.The rooms were charming and immaculate. After a long trip, we woke up late the next morning and missed the breakfast time by a short time, but Chris and Laura had no problem accommodating us. Breakfast was amazing! Day two was just a continuation. Our departure morning Chris made sure we had a good breakfast to start our journey home. I cannot say that we experienced great customer service, because that was not it. I have to say that we were subjected to top notch personal hospitality. We have traveled all over the country and, this by far, was the best stay we have experienced. This will be our go to place when we visit the area. Many, many thanks to Chris and The Chipman Inn. We look forward to our next visit.

Warm and welcoming
This place is not only charming, the innkeeper, Chris, goes WAY above and beyond. He not only engages with his guests, he is amenable, well-versed, and quick to lend a helping hand. When we needed to bring 20 hot lunches to our son's ski team, Chris volunteered his ovens and had them hot and ready when the skiers were hungry. And the apres-ski drinks and conversations with other parents and skiers around the Rumpert Fireplace is etched forever in our memories. Thank you for such a memorable stay!
