My family reserved two suites for a wedding. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. There was tea and coffee available when we arrived, and homemade cookies that were delicious! They also have a nice selection of wine and beer available for guests. Kevin served us a breakfast of homemade yogurt, fresh strawberries and blueberry pancakes that were amazing! He... More

Wonderful atmosphere! The innkeepers are awesome! We had a great time. This was our second time to visit. We plan to visit again as often as we can. The surrounding area had lots of things to do as well. We enjoyed our time there!! Cannot wait to visit again!

Very nice old farmhouse right off the main road with good parking. Hosts were very personable and fun to visit with. Rooms were very nice and definitely clean. Bed was great and even though it was close to the road, it was very quiet at night. Only sound I heard was the rain. They made a lovely breakfast in the... More

Never met more hospitable innkeepers. Michael and Kevin were so accommodating and the breakfast was delicious! An amazing and unique historical background in a beautiful scenery, what more could you ask for?

This B&B is truly the best one we've ever experienced...it's quite, charming, and relaxing. Excellent housekeeping and comfortable rooms. Kevin and Michael are always exceptionally gracious hosts. The well planned breakfast will always start the day out right. Looking forward to our next visit.

My husband and I stayed at the Ira Allen House for one night last fall while exploring southwestern Vermont. This is really an OLD home, complete with sloping floor in the living room and tons of books giving you the history of the house, the Green Mountain boys and that part of Vermont. Our bedroom suite was really two bedrooms,... More

Our family really enjoyed Michael and Kevin's hospitality at their historic and cozy inn. Michael even played the piano on Saturday night, which added to the charm. The common room had many family games, which we enjoyed in front of the fireplace, during a very cold afternoon. Breakfasts served in their rustic dining room, were delicious and portions were plentiful.... More

I really want to give this place a great review because the inn keepers are so nice but it really didn't reach above average as far as an Inn. I went in the winter so we weren't able to use the property but I could see where across the way would be beautiful in the warmer months. The inn keepers... More

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here in the early summer of 2013. We loved it so much we vowed to come back this winter. If anything our second stay was even better than the first - the coziness, comfort and charm of the inn was enhanced by the warming firelight and beautiful winter vistas from each... More

If you are looking for the quintessential Vermont Inn with charming Innkeepers and breathtaking views then this is where you'll want to stay. This Inn is 250 years old, and you can smell the history upon entering the front door. You will be greeted by two of the nicest innkeepers -- Michael & Kevin. They will make your stay welcoming,...
