We stayed at the Swift House Inn for a recent wedding. The food was fantastic. I tried several of the options at the rehearsal dinner and all were fantastic. The breakfasts were equally delicious and a great way to start the day. The staff were friendly and helpful. The owner, Michele, checked us in and was around and about throughout... More

This was a great place to stay. We stayed here on our second night of an Inn to Inn bike tour. The staff was so friendly, and the food (dinner and breakfast) was outstanding! We would love to stay again and explore Middlebury some more!

This is a beautiful inn, with a charming host and hostess. The restaurant is lovely and I enjoyed a delicious homemade ravioli dinner. My only complaint was the bedding: super comfy mattress, but icky linens. You may not be as picky as I am: the linens did not appear to be 100% cotton. I was really hot all night, despite... More

Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The Inn is just a beautiful home and decorated in period furniture. We stayed in the Swift room (the one in the photo), very quite, and very comfortable. Two nice robes are hanging in the closet, we thought that was a very nice touch. Breakfast was just great. I had the omelet and the... More

Visited for one night and glad we did on our way to Saratoga after dropping our son at camp in NH. Beautiful grounds to relax and enjoy a drink before dining in their restaurant Jessica's which was really delicious. Well seasoned, farm to table and very reasonably priced especially given the quality. Room was very well appointed with comfy robe... More

When I called to book our rooms at the Swift House Inn, Jacqueline chatted with me about what we planned to do in the area. The next week a nice package of maps and brochures came unsolicited in the mail! After a hectic family wedding in Burlington, the inn was a welcome retreat and I wish we had planned to... More

We arrived at Swift House Inn after biking 25 miles from Brandon VT as part of our inn-to-inn biking trip. We had 3 rooms, 2 in the carriage house and one In the main house. Jacqueline could not have been any nicer or more helpful as she showed us the inn, our rooms and all the amenities. All the rooms... More

My boyfriend and I spent my birthday at the Swift House Inn in August 2013 while he was participating in the German Language Summer program at Middlebury College. We had such a wonderful time that I decided to return this year for my birthday even though he could not come with me due to a summer teaching position in the... More

We stayed at this inn to attend a wedding. We found the staff to be very friendly and courtesy to the guests. Our room was inviting and very relaxing. We enjoy the comforts of the inns and will book inns before hotels. Beautiful grounds invite you to sit on the screened porch and relax with the outdoors. We understand that... More

Arrived after a long drive where we had a quick and warm welcome and were then escorted to the carriage house. Our room was on the first floor, was very spacious and up-to-date with a clean bathroom. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable and therer was a sofa and sitting area to relax and read. We enjoyed a made-to-order... More
