My son is in college here in Middlebury and this is Trip Advisor's top pick and it truly is a jewel. We had a lovely corner table last night. We both had Caesar salads -- so good! We split French fries cooked in duck fat and the veggie wontons -- the portions were almost TOO generous and both dishes were... More

Friendly staff and comfortable rooms made our stay here wonderful. No elevator so if you have heavy bags be prepared if you have an upstairs room. Breakfast was delicious and the owner is lovely to talk to. Front dest staff was helpful and you can walk to anywhere in town in just a few minutes. Stayed here during our Middlebury... More

I stayed here 3 1/2 years ago and came back when visiting Middlebury recently. The Swift House Inn remains beautiful, friendly, and comfortable. When we were here the main house was being renovated so we were sent to the Carriage House. Although I was initially somewhat apprehensive about the switch, the rooms were beautiful -- huge, tastefully furnished, and incredibly... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Swift House. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Only request would be for breakfast to be served a little later. Possibly until 10am instead of 9:30. Otherwise only praises.

The Swift House Inn is extraordinary in it's charm and quiet sophistication. The rooms we had (our son in the Main House) and my husband and I in the Carriage House, were beautifully appointed and furnished very comfortably. The Innkeepers are welcoming, friendly and professional and the breakfast is sublime! The sitting rooms and bar in the Main House are... More

When in Middlebury, Vt, there are only two decent options; the Marriott and The Swift House Inn. For the same money, give yourself a treat and stay at the Swift House. This is a quintessential New England Inn, in its finest form. The Staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful and the rooms are so charming and full of character that... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights including NYE and stayed in the Garden Room. Our stay was fantastic. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was soft and dreamy, we slept very well after our days of hiking, snowshoeing and dog sledding. We had NYE dinner at Jessica's and the food and service were outstanding. The breakfast...

Perfect place to stay while visiting the area. The owners make you feel home. Rooms amazingly clean and full of character. There is great food at the restaurant as well. Free parking, close to the downtown and restaurants. During the summer, I'm sure the area will offer a pleasant walk. Don't think twice to book a room here.

We very much enjoyed enjoyed a winter weekend stay at this lovely old inn that began life as the residence of Vermont governors. The three buildings offer a wide range of styles for guests: more traditional in the main building (especially charming, though, and convenient to the restaurant); more luxurious in the carriage house (larger rooms, more modern and spacious...
