We recently stayed at Fan House B&B for two nights throughout our long weekend journey to middle Vermont. This is an excellent location if you seek an accommodation close to Woodstock VT, but removed from the tourist traffic. Within walking distance of the location is a state park that offers kayak and canoe rentals and opportunities to swim in the... More

Wonderful stay last weekend in VT. Sara was very welcoming and helpful. Immediately upon arrival, she asked if we had dinner plans, and when we said no, made a suggestion and then called and got us reservations nearby. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was quite nice.

Sara went above and beyond in taking care of us at our stay. She set up an excellent trekking adventure on snowshoes with John, had warm fires burning and great meals prepared, even for our very early morning departure (had to beat out the next snowstorm). Beds were super comfortable. We love the decor and it was fun talking about... More

My hubby took me here for my b-day, so we could marvel at the rich fall colors of the highways of Vermont. Sara's house is a place where as soon as you enter the main door you are welcome with a sophisticated yet warm- two kisses on the cheek greeting. Since we flew from Portland on a red-eye to NY,...

We stayed at the Fan House for four nights at the end of August and felt: This was the place we wanted to be in. The Fan House and Barnard are congenial places: friendly, casual and completely relaxed. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere of the house and the room, slept perfectly well in our comfortable double bed, walked over tot... More

Sara made our stay in Barnard so amazingly comfortable. The room in The Fan House really felt like a retreat and the meals on the patio were lovely and delicious. I also liked talking with Sara about goings-on around town. It was so nice to have beach towels available so we could walk down to the lake.. or just stroll... More

My wife and I travelled from Connecticut to relax for three kid-free days. We couldn't have found a better place. The quiet town, the beautiful house and gardens, and the best breakfasts we've had in years, combined with the friendly hospitality offered by Sarah, all made for a perfect 10 getaway. Another couple had been there for two weeks when... More

We so enjoyed this small bed and breakfast in Barnard, VT. Immediately on entering you could feel the age of the home from the floors and the stairways. Sarah had a fire going for us and offered us a cup of tea to ward off the rainy weather we had been experiencing. She offered to make us dinner reservations which... More

What a wondeful stay we had at the Fan House with Sara! It was just what we wanted in a Vermont stay and more. It's truly one of the best B&B stays we have ever had. We were warmly greeted when driving up by Sara. She welcomed us to the Fan House showed us the house. A nice fire was... More

The web photos really do not do The Fan House justice; it has a Tuscan type of ambiance that made the whole atmosphere of being in Vermont that much more perfect. It is BEAUTIFULLY and generously appointed and decorated. We stayed in the Fireplace Room and it is thrilling to be there; beautiful, rich eclectic decor, fantastic, plush linens, pillows,... More
