From the music piping into the rooms and outdoor patios, to the delicious breakfast cooked and garnished to perfection, our stay was an exceptional experience. Geof and Mark were charming and gracious hosts! Any B&B we stay at from here on will be held to a very high standard. The entire house is decorated beautifully and kept meticulously clean. Our...

If you're looking for a serene and hospitable place to get away to, this is it! MarK, Geof, and Colette are so lovely and it's people like them that make you never want to leave Vermont. The house is beautiful, cozy, and sits on breathtaking grounds. Their pets Dudley, Buzz, and Tuna are a hoot and made our stay even... More

That's exactly what we had. We didn't plan on staying here, but it worked out wonderfully that we did. We were welcomed warmly by Collette the manager of the house. Collette was warm, bubbly and so sweet. She welcomed us and took us on a tour of the house. Our room was actually a little cottage that is attached to... More

We had such a wonderful experience at the Williams River House, we don't even know where to begin! We had a small wedding with 9 guests, and everyone had such a lovely time that we were devastated to leave on Sunday. Before arriving, Mark and Collette were extremely prompt and professional in responding to all of our inquiries. We had... More

Beautiful historic New England home decorated with *exquisite taste* and every attention to detail. The Williams River House is nestled in a private valley with rolling hills, green meadows and a babbling river--Vermont country living doesn't get better than this!! Hosts Mark and Geoff make you feel right at home with their warm, welcoming manner and comfortable, cozy home. We... More

I bumped into the Williams River House by accident and I am so very grateful that I did. My brother suggested the Inn as his daughter was getting married and I was too late reserving a room in Grafton. My two adult children and I had the most incredible 24 hours we've had together in a very long time. The... More

We went to the Williams River House after finding them online. We were looking for an all inclusive elopement package in New England and stumbled across this gem. They were so warm and welcoming. One of us really doesn't even like old houses or bed and breakfasts and this was 100% one of our best stays ever. The place is... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Williams River House over the MLK Jr. holiday weekend. We sought a B&B because of the possibility of interacting with resident “Vermonters” and to enjoy a memory as opposed to simply, accommodation. Our expectations were exceeded! Owners Mark and Geof have used impeccably good judgment in decorating the home... More

We've stayed at B&B's, inns, pensiones etc. and would rank the Williams River House at the very top. The owners (Mark and Geoff) and their very able and helpful on-site manager (Collette) made us feel as though we were part of a family. The location of the inn guarantees serenity and a good night's sleep, yet it is but a... More

This place truly is the most beautiful home I have ever been in. The attention to detail is unbelievable and the decor is fabulous. The land is breathtaking. Our bedroom, along with the others, was stunning. We felt at home the minute we arrived, thanks to the warm and generous welcome of Colette, Mark,and Geof. We only stayed one night,... More
