“Don and Janeen Wonderful stay at the Green River Bridge House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Most relaxing time ever . . . the sound from the river puts you to sleep, the aroma of the wonderful breakfast awakens and satisfies all particular tastes...and the magnificent setting arouses the rest of your senses. We stayed four days and can't wait to indulge ourselves again by returning.

Inn keeper is a real delight.

Room Tip: All rooms looked lovely. Picture perfect inside and out.

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor we chose this B&B for our first visit to Vermont. We were excited to stay here on a family vacation with our 11-month-old daughter and flew in from Utah, but upon arrival were promptly made aware that contrary to the online reviews (which mention children staying here), children are not welcome in the home. We quickly learned why as you can hear everything through the walls. I expect that Joan was worried the baby would cry all night and keep the other guests up. Luckily we were not turned away, but the experience was a stressful one and we felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome in the home during our visit.

That being said, the location is beautiful and the home is charming. Breakfast was also good - an egg dish, bacon, cantaloupe and kiwi. The bed was slightly uncomfortable, but it's hard to get a good night sleep when you're up all night stressed that you'll be given the boot if your baby makes a sound (which she didn't).

We wouldn't recommend this B&B to our friends, although we would recommend them making the drive out there to see the covered bridge and historic buildings.

Angela H, Owner at Green River Bridge House, responded to this review, October 28, 2012
Client did not tell me she had a baby when making the booking. I would not have accepted the reservation . When she appeared at the door i said "i did not know you had a baby" her responce was "oh, i must have forgotten to tell you" Children that are over 14 are welcome. My clients come here to rest and unwind from their own children. She also said you could hear everything through the walls. I personally had the house renovated and sound walls put in.....this is completely false. I have never had anyone complain about the beds....they are high quality! I suspect she did not sleep because I believe the baby was in bed with the couple! I do not have porta cribs etc. because I do not accept babies.
All one needs to do is look at my other reviews to get a clear picture of my establishment!

Absolutely the best B & B by all standards--an idyllic location in the woods by a covered bridge, waterfall, meandering stream, and a quaint church. The home is beautiful and comfortable with gorgeous furnishings. The innkeeper, Joan Seymour, is a warm and gracious hostess who we consider to be our friend after two visits. We can't wait to return again in the Spring. Lowell and Marilyn Heinke

Room Tip: Get the bridge room.

We spend 2 days in Green River Bridge House, it is a wonderful place, wonderful host, the Sunshine room with jacuzzi is perfect and the breakfast is delicious! We highly recommend a stay in Green River Bridge House, please be careful to the instruction to go there as the GPS is not always reliable!

When we could not find lodging on a " leafers weekend," we struck gold - a late cancellation. We found the GRBH, a beautifully restored, immaculate, 18th century country house on the river with a covered bridge and country church nearby. Joan Seymour, the charming innkeeper, greeted us warmly and showed us to our room with a jacuzzi and balcony overlooking the river. A superb breakfast of fresh fruit compote, soufflé, bacon and pastry was enhanced by the friendly atmosphere Joan created among her guests. As we later said our goodbyes, we were sure our next stay would be longer.

This B&B was exceptional in every way. The area was just beautiful. I can't even pick what we liked more! The covered bridge, skipping stones in the river, the peaceful nature of the area, or the gorgeous home. Great care was taken into making each guest feel comfortable. Joanie Seymour, the owner, goes to great lengths to provide her guests with an experience to remember. She made my family feel as if we were part of hers.

If your idea of perfect Autumn in Vermont is a cosy inn net to a covered bridge spanning a beautiful small river with brightly colored leaves abounding everywhere, this is the place for you. We stayed two nights in the Sunshine Room with a jacuzzi and a deck overlooking the beautiful yard. We left the sliding glass doors ajar at night so we could fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the river as it passed over small rapids.
Joanie, our host was extremely accommodating, tending to our every need. She had suggestions on where to go and what to see. She makes a filling breakfast every morning to get you on your way. The inn is full of antique furniture and Victorian glass. It's very clean and comfortable.
The GRBH is located about 8 miles southwest of Brattleboro and the last two miles to get there are on unpaved but well maintained road. Don't follow Google Maps suggested route for getting there, call or email Joanie instead. We turned our private location into a touring asset as we followed the back country roads through some very scenic countryside, ending up in Jacksonville where there is a wonderful winery and a great pottery shop. Later we headed for Mt. Snow where we took the chair lift to the top of the mountain and were treated to a spectacular view of Autumn colors extending 100s of miles in all directions.
We had a great time and we will be back to the GBRH next fall.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. Rooms are named for the view to be had out your windows.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set in the picturesque village of Green River on a winding country road, the Green River Bridge House is nestled against the meandering Green River a few steps away from the historic Green River Covered Bridge. Across the road, perched on a small hill, is the former Methodist Episcopal Church, a classic white, steepled structure.Next to the covered bridge, water thunders over a rare, restored circa 1790 timber crib dam.The house, built in 1830, once housed the Green River Post Office. In earlier days the barn was the site of the local blacksmith shop. Lovingly and skillfully transformed, the Green River Bridge House is luxurious in comfort and sensuous in visual appeal. Every room is a warm embrace of soft colors, fine antiques and other unique furnishings.Though small enough to be homey, it is large enough and appropriately equipped to be the perfect setting for an intimate wedding or anniversary celebration. ... more   less
