In late September, Bullock Enterprises, the catering operation at the Inn, delivered both a Rehearsal Dinner and a Continental Breakfast for our wedding guests at the Ripton Community House. The dinner served 100 guests by buffet, the continental breakfast served 70. The Caterers took care of all the prep and clean- up for both functions and prepared and served the... More

Chris and Joan were fabulous hosts! Friendly and informative and just nice people. The Master room is over the kitchen and the only drawback was freezer closing could be heard and felt at 6-6:30am, which was OK for us since we were getting up at that time anyway. Room was clean and comfortable. Meals were very good and plentiful. Brenda... More

Our four nights at the Chipman Inn in mid-September could not have been more enjoyable. Open the imposing door to this handsome building and you find yourself in a true country inn - not a tarted up B&B. (No icky bowls of strawberry potpourri here!) The owners, Joan Bullock and her son Chris, are the very soul of welcoming hospitality.... More

My husband and I just enjoyed two comfortable and memorable nights at Chipman Inn. We felt welcome as soon as we walked in the door. The room was so cozy and authentically furnished. Our hosts were very helpful and responded to every question thoroughly. Their guidance about the local attractions was on-target. The common areas felt like home. The history... More

At the end of our Inn to Inn hike we arrived at the Chipman Inn soaked, tired and exhausted at 6:30pm. The welcome we got from Joan and Chris was so warm and welcoming - "come on in, never mild your boots and the soaking clothes" From there our morale improved by the minute. Help with our bags from Chris... More

My husband and I had an amazing stay at the Chipman. Joan and Chris were such gracious hosts, and we felt very welcome into this beautiful 1828 home. They are full of wonderful stories about Ripton, Robert Frost, and various poets and writers who have come through the nearby Bread Loaf School of English. The room was clean and comfortable....

Very close to the Robert Frost trail, we found the Chipman Inn. The rooms were nice, spacious, very clean, comfortable and affordable, Food was delicious and inn owners Chris and Joan were really nice and extremely accommodating, above and beyond the call of duty. It was also a great opportunity to hear from them quite interesting local stories. We're very... More

Mother and son Joan and Chris and delightful, experienced hosts. After Joan ran the inn in the '80s the family recently returned to Ripton to run the Chipman Inn after a hiatus in the 90s and 00s. Chris and Joan bend over backwards to accommodate. We had a large party arriving over several days from several locations and for various... More

It was a cold and snowy night when we arrived at the Chipman Inn. We were very warmly greeted by Joan and Chris, the innkeepers, offered warm drinks, and a comfortable seat by the fire. Joan and Chris are both very friendly and accommodating, full of information and stories, and eager to offer help and suggestions. They treat you like... More

The trip is worth it just to hear stories from Joan! The house, setting, rooms and food are all great. We had the good fortune to visit during one of the cafe music events at the community center next door and our overall experience in Ripton was magical. We will be back.
