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...

The Swift House Inn treated our family very well. Preparing for a wedding, it was the perfect spot and we had the Gate House to ourselves. The buildings are well maintained and very comfortable. Our breakfasts were delicious. It is a lovely spot and the owners work hard to balance everything.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Swift House Inn. It is really a lovely Inn - well-appointed with beautiful furnishings, and very clean. There is a nice little bar area where we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink talking with other guests and employees. Although the restaurant was not open for dinner the night we were there, we enjoyed walking to... More

We stayed at this lovely property 3 nights in October during a leaf peeping trip. The accommodations were delightful, and the staff could not have been more friendly. The location is convenient for walking into town to dine, shop, or for just a lovely stroll. We found the Swift House Inn to be the perfect base for day trips to... More
