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

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.

It looked like all the museum homes I visit, but there weren't any velvet ropes to keep you out of rooms! The guest rooms upstairs are charming, and all the rooms on the main floor are magnificent. Staying there was like being a guest of the Hartness family. The staff were so nice and helped with anything we asked for,... More

We went here with a Groupon because they are a dog friendly place. Thought it would be a slow 3 days but turned out to be pretty busy after Brad told us about places to see and visit. We enjoyed Joann who is a dog lover who sat on the floor and played with Lola. You can't beat the breakfast... More

Jules and Brad, the owners of the Hartness House Inn, hosted our elopement. They handled every detail beautifully. Our big day, though small in numbers, was nothing short of my dream. They had great suggestions on local places to dine and shop, and were on hand and easily accessible if we needed anything or had any questions. The food was... More

Stayed at the Hartness House in Springfield, VT for a long weekend. Stayed in the Charles Lindbergh Room in the Main House. It was large, sunny and loved it. The weather was great, but the flowers and gardens were not blooming yet, but had started to bud after a long hard winter. Can't wait to see the place in full... More

We loved the history of this inn. The owners were more than willing to share the story which we love about the history of inns, along with the underground tunnels - which made it a unique experience. The food was amazing and the rooms were very nice. The floors were a little creaky, but what do you expect of an... More

Stayed at the Inn for a long weekend getaway. Had a great relaxing 5 days. All staff and Innkeepers were very accommodating, pleasant and helpful. Chef was very accommodating with my dietary restrictions. Been going to the Inn 3 or 4 times a year for the last 10 years. It's our "Home Away from Home." Judy & Richard
