We stayed here on our honeymoon decades ago, and returned recently for the first time. We had a very nice room across the street from the Inn, room 37....oversized, very comfortable bed, lovely amenities, excellent wireless service, and clean bathroom. We did notice the creaking floorboards overhead, but the satisfaction of the rest subdues that detail. To be able to... More

Almost 5 months ago, I met my fiance in the meadow along the swimming hole at the Grafton Inn where we exchanged our wedding vows in an intimate elopement ceremony ... it was nothing short of magical! The setting was the essence of New England ... I walked down a lush grassy hill, along a rock wall, past a swimming... More

It will always be the "Old Tavern" to us! This special place in a picturesque Vermont village brings us back time and time again! We even have a room that we like to call "ours". It doesn't matter the season, except for "mud" when the Inn is briefly closed, a trip to Grafton is always a delight! Whenever we feel... More

The Grafton Inn Is a charming, cozy place with a restaurant and pub on site that offer dining and drinking choices. The breakfast room is bright and sunny and the full breakfasts are included in the room rate. We sampled all three places and found the staff efficient and friendly, and our dinners were both delicious. If you are looking... More

Have been going to Grafton Inn for many years. During winter for cross country skiing other times for scenery and the quiet ambiance of Grafton Vt. If you are looking for high energy night life,flat screen TV, VCR,DVD , and a mini bar in your room this place is not for you. Excellent food, tasteful rooms from another era,a responsive... More

This was our 5th time at the inn. We have been noticing steady deterioration over the years but did not want to admit that this once favorite place had finally hit bottom. I was not going to write this review until we received a post trip survey from them and received a form letter as a reply. They did not... More

Attended a wedding at the Grafton Inn. An excellent venue in all respects. Would stay again! A true Vermont experience! Lots to see and do in the area. Everyone was very helpful. All meals were well prepared and presented.

My now husband I were originally planning a large wedding, that, as is often is the case, started to overwhelm us in cost and scope. We turned to the Grafton Inn initially because they offered a well-reviewed elopement package. We knew we were making the right choice when we had our first conversation with Kathy, (a co-innkeeper and coordinator of... More

This is a very chintzy old style inn. Not to our taste at all, we much prefer modern but there wasnt anything else with good reviews in the area. We had a tiny 4 poster double bed. We were squished right in together. The bed creaked terrible, anytime either of us moved it woke the other up. No tv only... More
