A one night stop on our way to a wedding in New Hampshire couldn't have been more wonderful. We were warmly greeted with iced tea and cookies in the beautiful lobby. The town was fun to explore on foot, with a stop in the "general store" where we met some interesting town people. We loved our room. It had everything... More

A beautiful historic property in the hills of southern Vermont. The perfect place to just relax, unwind, and enjoy the view! A lovely breakfast is included with your room rate, and a pub is on the property and open for dinner starting Wednesday-Sunday. Be sure to check out the wine and cheese shop and Mack's, a great place for lunch!

This is a lovely old inn. It is in a beautiful and charming small town, lush and green, in the middle of spectacular countryside. The inn seems well cared for although my room was not the greatest -- very small, the chairs had no springs left so you really couldn't sit in them. I did visit friends who were in... More

This fine old establishment has the charm and appeal of Colonial Williamsburg. By old I do not mean outdated, but a well kept historic building. The staff were friendly and quick to accommodate. There are period antiques throughout. The rooms are kept up with great care. Our bed was comfortable. The rooms have central air which was welcome on a... More

This is a very pretty hotel with very comfortable rooms in a very nice tiny town. There is a nice pond to swim in and there are a few cute places to eat in the town, as well as a cheese company. We came for a wedding and this was a wonderful place to stay. They allow dogs in certain... More

Once again had the opportunity to enjoy this little gem in my favorite State of Vermont! After way too much rain here in New England, we lucked out with two beautiful sunny days at the Inn. Grafton is a very special place, peaceful, serene, friendly and happy. That describes the town, the folks at the Inn, the help at the... More

The inn is a charming, historical place in a small, quaint town. The staff was friendly and the rooms were adequate, although with no amentities to speak of.....harsh towels, no tv, etc. But the biggest problem was the generator which was a VERY loud hum going all day and night. It's a shame to go to the country and be... More

My son and I stayed here the night before his interview at Vermont Academy. The room was wonderful (one bedroom suite - there was a pullout bed in the main room). Comfortable beds and wonderful bathroom, complete with very spacious tub and nice shower. Lots of toiletries were provided. I thought the Inn itself was beautiful and very well kept.... More

I visited Grafton for the first time in March. The weather was cold, and snowed some days. This Inn has a wonderful atmosphere for an authentic Vermont experience. We were placed in one of the out "homes" belonging to the Inn. Home #1. This beautifully restored home was saved by the Grafton Trust, and was a wonderful home and gathering... More
