I have to begin by saying some of the comments in the reviews were a bit harsh given the fact that the new hosts are up front about the changes and their dedication. It is our understanding that this B&B was recently taken over by new management and they are in the process of cleaning up the home, making changes... More

Myself, wife and baby spent three nights in room 205. I booked and paid for the place, later read others' reviews concerning bed bugs here, then stayed here. Needless to say, I asked about the bed bugs when I checked in and was told it had been cleared up. For the record on this sensitive topic, I had no bed... More

Family and I stayed one night at HH on a recent trip through VT. The Inn is located on a small hill beyond downtown Springfield, so it was very quiet there. Our Carriage House rooms were in back of the main Inn. There is an inner hall passageway to get to them although they can be accessed from a side... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Hartness House and really enjoyed our stay, The house itself is very nice and atmospheric. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was in the annex, one of the so-called contemporary rooms. I personally did not like the room as everything in it was old and dated, including the bathroom. The atmosphere was... More

Hello! Thank you for your stay and for appreciating the historic atmosphere of our Inn as well as the quality of our staff. The annex rooms are our cheapest rooms as they do not have the historic value of our mains rooms, however we will be renovating them soon and hope that you will see an improvement! As our ingredients... More

Spent 2 nights here in a beautiful suite. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the meals on site. The tour through the tunnel was an added bonus to learn more a out the history of the inn. We would definitely visit again

Hi John, Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at the historic Hartness House Inn. You got to try some of our food, that's great. We just adopted new menus for the Governor's Room and the Telescope Tavern. We always love taking folks down into the tunnel and telescope museum. It's a unique... More

Even though we now live in another part of the country, I grew up near there, and I remember when the Hartness House was indeed a class act. Staying there in June 2015 reminded me of a line Bette Davis used in an old movie ("Beyond the Forrest"), "What a dump!" Our room was on the lower level in the... More

Dear David Y, Thanks for your review. It's a shame you're not interested in staying with us again. It's true that we have some tired furniture and carpets in certain areas of the inn, but we have renovations planned for the coming months! We've only just got our hands on this place and we still have much to do. The... More

The Hartness House is a stately hotel, truly a historical treasure. My husband and I stayed there on June 19th, 2015 in the Charles Lindburg room. All seemed well until about 4 days after our stay when my husband began seeing and feeling itchy welts from head to toe! He visited the doctor because the itching was SO bad. The... More

Dear Dale and Susan, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay at the Hartness House and apologize for the inconvenience caused. 115 bites sounds awful! It happened that I've stayed in exactly the same room for a week right before your visit. We have had a pest extermination company thoroughly clean all of our inn's rooms... More

I hate to write negative reviews, but....hubby and I were very disappointed with our recent stay at the Hartness House. From what we observed, two guys (Dave and Zack) seem to do all the work (room cleaning, cooking, tours, maintenance, etc.). This old house has such potential, if only the off-site group of owners would put some money into it.... More

Hello! We are very sorry to hear that your stay with us was less than excellent. You are correct in that we have had a change of management, and as such, please forgive us as we improve and strive to make the Inn more like a home away from home.

Married at the Hartness House 10 years ago, returned for our anniversary. My wife and I had a wonderful visit. The food was excellent, as were the accommodations in the Main House. The staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed the stay.
