We stayed here for a weekend last weekend and enjoyed everything about this perfect inn! We spent the morning reading in one of the many adirondack chairs scattered throughout the lawn, admiring the views and chatting with old friends. The breakfast is bountiful and delicious! The innkeeper, Michelle was so hospitable and was truly hands on in all aspects of... More

This fine old historic inn dates from around 1815, and has the furniture (and slightly off-kilter floors) to prove it. Modernized without being defaced, it oozes charm from every pore. I drove hell for leather for 256 miles to make my 8 pm dinner reservation and was not disappointed. The sea scallops were to die for. Entrees run in the... More

We recently stayed at the Swift House in for several nights. My wife was a bit apprehensive because the last few B&Bs we visited missed the mark on a few things and we just wanted a simple stay in a clean, comfortable place without a lot of fuss. The Swift House was in a great walkable location to everything in... More

Everyone who works here is very welcoming and accommodating. Room was comfortable and well appointed and the breakfast was great! The area is so beautiful! I spoke with a local and he says he always recommends the Swift House Inn to anyone coming to Middlebury.

Lovely property with more Inn than B&B feel. Stayed in the Addison room with nice amenities. Hosts and staff are great and very accommodating when we arrived early on a rained out bike tour. Great location in an interesting college town. The common rooms are delightful also.

My first experience at Swift House Inn was last fall, when my family and I ate at Jessica's. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. I was so thrilled that business took me back to Middlebury again this spring, where I had the great fortune to actually stay at Swift House Inn, for a portion of my visit.... More

Was looking to ride some of the beautiful (and hilly) Vermont backroads and a friend booked the Swift House Inn. Middlebury is a beautiful spot and the inn fits in perfectly with the beautiful town. Excellent rooms with the only challenge being fresh air (they are sealed shut). Really like living in someone's beautiful 100 year old home and having... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Gladstone Room at the Swift House Inn. We cannot give this place enough accolades!!! The room was quiet, large, with tall ceilings, enormous windows on 3 sides, very private, lovely fireplace with living room area, king bed with incredible linens and a large bathroom. Our room had fresh flowers and wonderful spa... More

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
