I found this Inn in Bedandbreakfast.com and am so thankful that I did. My husband and I were able to go away on a restful weekend away and enjoy a personal experience with kind innkeepers who were very sensitive to making our experience special. They were even able to accommodate to my gluten free dietary needs right down to making... More

Returned to the Buttonwood Inn for a vacation in the mountains and had an amazing vacation. The location is perfect for adult or child activities. Paula is an excellent cook and accommodates diet restrictions and child preferences. Hope to make it a yearly retreat. Maybe try it in another season too. Can't believe how identical the innkeeper is to Bill... More

Sipping tea on the porch after breakfast, taking in the lawns, flowers and foliage - the perfect way to start the day while at Buttonwood - Mount Surprise. Every breakfast was different, creative and tasty, Paula puts a lot of love and thought into her cooking as Bill does with the service. Freshly baked cookies or muffins served every evening... More

As often repeat visitors we keep returning here. It is quiet, comfortable, clean, relaxing, and classic New England. Lots of nice folks as well as very hospitable innkeepers. As active visitors (hiking, biking, etc.) we really like the hot tub and the secluded location. Just a great place to unwind and relax.

I liked the Buttonwood Inn a lot. Bill and Paula welcomed us well. Paula's breakfast was good. I loved the Broccoli puree a lot!! I thought it must be awful and inedible but it was surprisingly nice. The rooms were small but very clean. We loved the location. It was so quiet and amidst all the greenery I felt close... More

We are happy you enjoyed most aspects of our Bed and Breakfast including décor, ambiance, and food. We were sorry you were not happy with our traditional Room 5 with the private bathroom a few steps outside of the guest room. We understand your concern about running into another guest from Room 6 during the night. However, room 6 has... More

My husband and I had been traveling for 2 weeks and slept in a variety of beds, some of which left me with a very sore back. We were only at the Buttonwood Inn for 2 nights but the bed was wonderful and I felt so much better. Paula serves a great breakfast and evening snack. Bill is very knowledgeable... More

We are a family of 5 and stayed with Bill and Paula at the Buttonwood Inn. They were great hosts and we really enjoyed their hospitality and the friendly and welcoming environment of the Inn. Come hungry for breakfast though, because Paula cooks up an amazing breakfast spread... Great fuel for a day of hiking the green mountains!

To be clear: The location is wonderful, the rooms great, never had such delicious breakfast in any hotel or Inn in stayed. The hosts are really helpful with everything. Five stars so far without any doubt. But without listing all examples and incidents that would probably look picky: We neither felt welcome nor as a paying guest. This was an... More

We are sorry you did not feel welcome during your stay at The Buttonwood Inn recently. We’re happy, however, that you enjoyed the breakfast, guest room, and common rooms. We recall that you arrived at our inn during the afternoon without a reservation, while we were running errands, wanting to reserve a room for several nights at our inn. We... More

My wife and I had our first experience at Buttonwood on the weekend of 6/13 (Friday the 13th!), and got the romantic weekend package. We had been to Buttonwood the previous year as a stop on a tour of local inns and shops, and had resolved to go there for an actual stay. Buttonwood is a delightful place, set back... More
