We were in town for our nephew's "Feb" graduation from Middlebury College. Many of our relatives and friends had also booked rooms at the Swift House Inn, and it was a wonderful place to serve as our "base" for the weekend's festivities. The beautifully-furnished living room, complete with fireplace, was cozy, inviting and naturally became the gathering area as family... More

I can't believe I grew up in Middlebury and missed this treasure for so many years! We stayed this past Saturday and had the most pleasant stay. The food was excellent, the staff beyond courteous and our room was just perfect! We will be back many many times in the future. Thank you for the perfect weekend getaway!

As a Middlebury College alumna and now parent of twin daughters there, we've stayed at the Swift House several dozen times. Each time it is like coming home. A picture perfect historic country inn, the Swift House has comfortable and inviting public rooms, a fantastic wine cellar, a solid dining room with a delicious included cooked-to-order hot breakfast, and charming,...

Swift House Inn was the perfect getaway for New Years Eve. Fireplaces in the rooms, super comfortable beds and incredibly helpful/accomodating owners. We visited for our anniversary and the owners surprised us with champagne in our room!-;) We had a luscious, amazing dinner at Jessica's, their restaurant ON New Years Eve. Mmmmmm! Everyone at the front desk was beyond helpful.... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Main House in the Garden Room. The room was nice and had a really nice jacuzzi/shower. The bed was big and comfy. The room also has it's own private entrance right off a nice patio which I am sure would be nice during warmer weather. There is a restaurant which offers... More

Chose to Stay in the Swift House Inn for a special get-a-way weekend. From the beginning, they couldn't have done much to improve things. I had originally booked through another travel site, who wouldn't even honor their own coupon. I emailed the inn and then called the next day. Right away, they offered a much better price, and explained the... More

This lovely Inn offers comfort and warmth amidst period decor, yet offers modern touches like free wifi and 24hour access to coffee/tea; a full breakfast is included in the room rate. I was pleased to be within a short walk of downtown Middlebury shops and restaurants. The Inn itself has an excellent restaurant, Jessica's, with a focus on local products... More

We stayed three nights at the Swift Inn and would stay there again. Our room was nicely decorated but what sold us on the place was the fact that the owners were thoughful enough to have 2 luggage racks in the rooms. Breakfast was delicious and specials varied each morning. We ate dinner there one night and it was excellent.... More

We just happened upon this great place on our way back from a parent weekends. (We think we got the last of a what they had?) We thought we would stop in Middlebury and continue our drive back home the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised to see a nice restaurant in the hotel. We had a drink and dinner... More

We had a family reunion at Swift House in Middlebury recently. The rooms were above average in size and very comfortable and clean. The staff was particularly attentive and friendly. Breakfast was excellent each morning. If the weather is okay, I recommend eating outside on the patio. Dinner is available about 4 nights per week and was above average, although... More
