We recently stayed at the Chipman Inn for a swim meet at Middlebury College, and had a wonderful visit. Chris and Joan were so friendly and kind - it really felt like home there. Joan spoiled us in the mornings with her homemade banana bread and baked apples, and when we came back at night after a long day, Chris... More

My wife and daughter and I spent three nights at the Chipman Inn while attending a swim meet at Middlebury where one of my sons was competing. It was our first time staying at the Inn, and the hospitality that was extended by Chris and Joan as innkeepers was a revelation. They were kind, welcoming, accommodating, and engaging. In addition,... More

The hospitality at the Chipman Inn is defined by staff, facility and location. Above all, the owners Chris and Joan were there to provide a room and place to land during a time of need for us. This is personal, and professional. Both are personally engaging, taking full interest in us as people who have connections to family in Ripton.... More

The inn itself is located in an older but very clean building. We were greeted by the inn keepers Chris and Joan, who are both absolutely fantastic. The fully stocked bar made for a great central meeting place ahead of and after dinner. The food was very good, the ambiance overall was very good, but the rooms unfortunately were not... More

The Chipman Inn owned by Joan and her son Chris Bullock is a warm and cozy B & B nestled in rustic Ripton Vt. adjacent to the Green Mountain National Forest. The rooms are all splendid and comfortable. Joan and Chris are wonderful and gracious hosts and just plain nice people. Joan is a great cook and her Pennsylvania Dutch... More

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
