Very welcoming stay in an old Vermont inn. Nothing fancy, just solid service, clean room and comfortable bed. Wifi didn't quite work from our room but did downstairs so no worries. Breakfast was hearty eggs Benedict. Delish! Easy access to Rikert ski center and Middlebury.

This is a charming inn and the Innkeepers, Joan and her son Chris, were very friendly and helpful in choosing a hike for the next day. The food was excellent and there was lots of it. We would definitely plan to visit again.

This was our second stay at the Chipman Inn. Joan and her son Chris are welcoming and attentive, but not in the intrusive way of some B&B owners. Someone else’s description here of “New England Shabby-Chic” is a good one, and the “why not?” all-year-round Christmas Tree on the 2nd floor makes me very happy. The common room has comfy... More

We had such a nice experience at the Chipman Inn. Our hosts could not have been nicer, our room was quiet, clean, comfortable and cheerful. Breakfast was delicious. We were visiting friends in Middlebury. We would happily stay there again. If you are looking for fancy or trendy, this is not the place. If you are looking for charming and... More

The mother-and-son inn keeping team of Joan and Chris will make you feel right at home! This modest but beautiful inn has charm aplenty and is the perfect antidote to the bland hotel experience. The decor might be described as unassuming Yankee shabby-chic... with an out of season Christmas tree thrown in for good measure. Ample breakfasts are served promptly... More

Absolutely love this place! The people are amazing and so friendly. Breakfast each day was delicious and sitting in the common room at nights with other travelers having drinks was perfect. This is the perfect place to stay and see all that the area has to offer. Whether your into the local breweries or want to spend time in the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn, especially the excellent dinner and the great stories told by Joan and Chris. We felt welcome and cared for and as if we were honored guests. The furnishings and ambiance of the guest rooms and public rooms varied but everything was clean and comfortable.

I am not sure where to start. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Chipman Inn. Chris and Joan are so warm and welcoming. I had originally made reservations for one night and we decided to stay for two so I called and they were able to add a night and then after we got there we... More
