It is a good job that the Yankee Pedlar Inn claims to be haunted because it really doesn't have much more going for it. When we arrived there, we were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist. She accompanied us to our room as the old elevator can only be operated by reception staff. The room was extremely old-fashioned and it... More

My 17 year old daughter wanted to stay in the haunted hotel when we were in the area. We stayed in the "most haunted" room. I didn't notice anything but she is sure she heard footsteps. Haunted or not it was a pleasant stay. The inn is very old with narrow doorways and squeaky hinges and floorboards. The room was... More

Who said the USA didn't have any history, however some things are not worth preserving! After visiting "Historic Main Street" in just about every town in New England this hotel truly is historic/prehistoric! I realise that this hotel will face many challenges to modernise; however a TV with a tube, in 2015, I think not. This place is oozing with... More

This was the coolest hotel I have ever stayed in! It was like stepping into the past. Everything in there was old and creepy! I loved the ghost stories I read prior to going there and made a point to visit the haunted rooms. I wanted to stay in one but my boyfriend didn't. If you're into old, creepy stuff... More

I have stayed here multiple times while either skiing locally, seeing the opera or a show at the Warner theatre across the street, or visiting family. If you're looking for bell hops and mint under your fluffed up pillow, then this place isn't for you. Yes it's old. Hello! It's a historic landmark. Yes it needs some tlc and beware... More

There are a great many reviews of the Yankee Pedlar and having stayed two nights I cannot disagree with with many of them. The hotel ownership is being transferred with both parties currently involved with the running of the place. The problem is that the hotel has seen better days, those days probably being in the 1890s or at least... More

I stayed at this Inn for one night. Love old Inns - really wanted to like it. The staff was very friendly however the accommodations are in need of an upgrade. This is a great old place but in need of a big 'refresh'. The first two rooms I was shown really should not even have been an option. The... More

We spent a night in this 100+ year old Inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The building is showing its age, but it still well fitted out. The room was clean and the bed was good. The free WiFi worked very well.

The hotel was old. If you take away the TV and AC in the room, it feels like you go back in time by at least 150 years. Sound proof was non existent. You can hear squeaky sound when someone walk pass the door and slamming doors was a norm. Room was clean and sufficient for 1 or 2 nights... More

Old...very! Loved it! "Haunted"...not sure... but loved the thought of it! Charm...in a round about way...fun! We went for a over night get away from New York , met the owner, hung at the bar in the hotel, told ghost stories and just had a great time. It really depends on what you are looking for, is it different? Yup,... More
