I had a wonderful 4 day stay at this exquisite B+B. Clean, friendly and fantastic food. Karen and Ron make you feel right at home. Karen even makes homemade salad dressing that is out of this world. Will stay there again next time I visit beautiful St Albans.

Our family and some friends stayed in this B & B for the weekend of our daughter's wedding. The wedding was held in their back yard, which was lovely for such an event! Although our wedding group was small, they can accommodate a much larger group and even move the group indoors if the weather doesn't cooperate. The 1850s house... More

Back Inn Time was quite a find. It is in the beautiful town of St. Albans. The owners Karen Marie and Ron have really put their heart in soul into this property. The house itself is a landmark and the way Karen Marie and Ron have preserved this special place is amazing. The Inn is walking distance to downtown St.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Back Inn Time for our wedding night, and it was such a pleasant and romantic stay! The staff was attentive and flexible in making special arrangements for our late arrival after our wedding that evening; having chilled champagne on ice waiting for us in the room; and for accommodating my gluten-free dietary needs...

My husband and seven year old daughter recently stayed at this Inn and had a lovely visit. My daughter was absolutely enchanted by the Victorian period furnishings and we all were greeted/treated very warmly by the hosts. The accommodations were very comfortable, the place was very clean, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! (I was delighted to discover that they... More

Back Inn Time was recommended to us. We arrived early evening and Karen Marie and Ron welcomed us warmly and showed us around their beautiful home. I was positively entranced. It took me back years…back to my Grandmother’s house. Such wonderful memories flooded in. The antiques, the stories, the warmth, the friendliness, our cozy room and the delicious breakfast shared...

I had a most enjoyable five-night stay at KarenMarie and Ron's lovely inn. As I was in town visiting family and attending two family reunions, I wasn't able to spend a lot of time at the inn, but when I returned at the end of each day, I felt like I was going "home" to a quiet, relaxing retreat. Hope's... More

I had to cancel a booking because of a plumbing disaster at home after the two-week deadline. This B & B charged me the max they could: first night deposit, tax and the Canadian exchange rate ($166). I will try a different B & B next time...

We are very sorry that Kenneth never contacted us directly after the charges. He has never stayed with us before, and was given the same email confirmation and cancellation policy given to all guests upon booking. When I contacted him in response to his plumbing issue at home and his desire to cancel, I asked him if he would like... More

We enjoyed a weekend stay in the Lovejoy Room. KarenMarie and Ron were very attentive, directing us to excellent restaurants, local farmer's market, music on the town green and the Missisquoi Rail Trail during our stay. We slept well, ate well and enjoyed an excellent Vermont wine on the deck with our hosts and other guests. Highly recommended as is... More
