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.

My wife and I had a great time last weekend attending a college fraternity reunion. Ron and Cyndee provided the perfect location and environment for this event. Their warmth and efficiency in providing everything necessary made this a perfect stay. The food was great, and the guests found comfortable spaces for reminiscing and making new friends. Highly recommended.

My wife and I went for my M.I.T. Fraternity reunion. The owners and staff were wonderful. The location ideal... Now I want to come during ski season since it's so ideally located. We loved the ambiance, the decor, the setting. The landscaping was beautiful. Just wait until you get up, go on the front porch and enjoy multiple cups of... More

Just completed group outing weekend at the Snow Goose Inn. Cyndee and staff did a superb job making sure everyone was comfortable and well taken care of. The inn's outdoor spaces were perfect for the early August Vermont weather. Can't wait for the return trip!

Cyndee and Ron Frere masterfully handled our reunion this weekend. No attendee had to think about any logistics. Meals, golf, hiking, informal receptions, etc. all well thought through and executed perfectly. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. If anyone is looking for a place to handle about 30 guests convenient to Boston and New York in Southern Vermont in... More
