We had a great experience at this B&B during our 3 night stay. We were treated warmly and the owner was so very helpful and wanting to give you guidance on sights, etc... We appreciate that they are pet-friendly. We understand renovation takes time. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The roosting barred Owl outside our room was an... More

We stayed two nights at the Silas Griffith Inn in order to spend a few days hiking with our dog in the Manchester VT area. The innkeeper was a friendly, cheerful woman who clearly loved dogs. She made us feel very welcome and was helpful with advice about where we could swim with pup and what restaurants had outdoor seating... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Inn. I'm glad you felt welcomed and comfortable on your weekend away from your kids. I'm glad Fiona enjoyed her stay as well and hope you all enjoyed our many pet-friendly restaurants in the area. Yes, we are renovating. Yes, it takes time. We are removing the hottub which this year's... More

The inn is in disrepair (don't believe signs about historic renovations). Basic upkeep tasks are ignored and even arriving after dark the discarded bikes, tools and assorted trash was evident in the bushes and around the buildings. Don't waste your money.

Found it from a friend. Inn is in process of restoration which takes considerable time. Kathy prepares your breakfast from a limited menu but all excellent. If you take the time to allow Kathy to tell you the history if the Inn, you will be amazed. Rooms in an adjacent historical building with a relatively steep stairway but that was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We really appreciate it. Thanks for mentioning the Round Pocket door. It really is a unique piece of architectural history. Supposedly it is the largest round pocket door in Vermont, and the 2nd largest in the country. We really enjoyed having you as our guests, and hope to see... More

This Inn has a very interesting history. The restoration is a work in progress. VT had continuous rain in the spring and summer so it was hard to make much progress on the outside. Kathy was a wonderful host. We were in the area doing genealogy. She called the local historian to find out some info. for us and also... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We're very happy you enjoyed your stay. Our chickens are definitely friendly.

The Silas Griffith Inn has interesting history and is in a lovely location. I was section hiking the Appalachian Trail by myself and was happy to be promptly met by Cathy and taken to the Inn, which has promise but needs a lot of work. It was comfortably enough, but had a tired feel to it. For the price I... More

When I googled a place to stay near Pawlet, VT, the Silas Griffith Inn popped up. I called Cathy to make a reservation. Since it was only me, she knocked $10 off the nightly rate without even asking for it. She asked me what brings me to Danby and I told her I was on a genealogy trek across New... More

My husband and I stayed over the holiday weekend hoping to enjoy peaceful Vermont and some snowshoeing. Sadly, we couldn't sleep because the neighbor to our room in the guest house kept their television blaring all night and yelled at each other over the noise. We later learned that these were not guests, but boarders who had been living there... More

I'm really sorry the guests in the room beside you disturbed your stay. When you told me of the incident the second morning at breakfast I apologized and offered to change your room. We had one room available in the Manor House that weekend. Once I was aware of the problem, which your husband downplayed, the noisy guests were asked... More
