Really nice hotel overall, walkable to main street in Middlebury. The only real drawback we experienced was that the room got a bit warm, even with the air conditioning on. We were in the Battell room.

We are staying at Swift House while attending the first Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival - from the friendly greeting after a long drive from NYC, to the large, well maintained room, to the personal greetings by the owner each day, to a scrumptious daily breakfast, we couldn't have picked a better spot. Highly recommended!

My daughter and I stayed here while visiting Middlebury College. We stayed in a room with two twin beds that were exceptionally comfortable and had a fantastic night's sleep. The inn is gorgeous, and very well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The only (small) issue I have that prevented a 5 star rating is that they... More

Sometimes there is no excuse, we just make a mistake! In this case the easy task of a refund was forgotten and never completed. I can understand the frustration for and inconvenience for the guest! We do have a wonderful staff that we and our guest appreciate. We have procedures and checks to prevent things like this from happening unfortunately... More

My husband and I stayed at the Swift House Inn for only one night on a recent trip to Vermont due to it's proximity to Woodchuck Cidery (~5 min drive!). The Inn was gorgeous, made up of several buildings in a small range. The main house has a restaurant that I heard was good but we already had dinner plans.... More

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
