Cyndee, the Inn Keeper, was very sweet and accomodating. Very friendly staff, cozy admosphere, great food, and very close to Mt Snow. We had a room with a fireplace, the rooms are well kept and clean. We would definitely go back!

We spent one weekend at this lovely hotel with our dog and another couple to go snowboarding and had a wonderful time. Snow Goose Inn is very conveniently located and easy to find. It has a great welcoming, cosy and intimate atmosphere. Our room was warm, spacious and had a huge bathroom. They provide some board games that we used... More

From the very first phone call to book the room to our last good-bye, I can't say enough about Cyndee. What an amazing host! The Inn is so warm and inviting from the minute you walk thru the front door. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms with a lovely king size bed (with lots of pillows), a private... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this beautiful b&b last weekend for our anniversary. This is only our 2nd B&B and were impressed with the first one. First the drive was amazing. We went during the fall season to see all of the trees turning. The ride really lets you appreciate how important the land is. We arrived at the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Snowgoose Inn a few weeks ago to spend a quick weekend away in Vermont as we were mountain biking at Mount Snow. The inn is in very close proximity to Mount Snow and closeby to a few good restaurants in town. The Snowgoose was such an inviting inn, very cozy and warm. Cyndee... More

Very well run and very clean. The food was awesome and our innkeeper was very gracious and hospitable. We would highly recommend the Snow Goose Inn for a romantic get-away. Dan & Francesca September 27, 2014

Comfy, quiet, and inviting. This was a repeat visit we still can't stop talking about it. The room and bath were very clean and tastefully decorated. Our dog appreciated the direct access outside as well as the warm greeting. Thank you!

My husband and I had a wonderful time with his fraternity brothers and their wives in early August at the Snow Goose. Cyndee and Ron could not have been more welcoming and attentive to our needs. They made all arrangements for our group luncheons and dinners as well as recommending summer outdoor activities in this mostly winter resort area. The... More

We spent the weekend at the Snow Goose while participating in the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. Our room (The King Suite) was clean and comfortable and had access to a lovely back porch. There are so many little pleasant surprises that you don't see at other inns: Wine and cheese in the afternoons, a "treasure chest" filled with extra personal... More

I was here for a couple's weekend to complete the Green Mountain Adventure challenge. Ron and Cyndee were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The breakfast in the morning was incredible with delicious, locally sourced ingredients. We look forward to returning to the Snow Goose Inn soon.
