“Like staying with the relatives you wish you had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We stayed at this inn as part of a Vermont Cycling Tour, and it was the perfect introduction to Vermont—a state treasure! Accommodations are comfortable farmhouse bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Tea, soft drinks, and homemade cookies are always available, and there is a lovely front porch to sit and enjoy them. The décor features work by local artisans, including innkeeper Edie herself, who is a talented quilter. The food was truly outstanding, including scrumptious scones and light-as-air pancakes at breakfast and themed dinners—we had French and Italian, beautifully prepared and served family-style. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

My wife and I just returned from two nights at the October Country Inn.
This was our first time staying at a B&B so we weren't sure if we would like the experience but it was great.

The room was very clean and inviting as was the rest of the inn.
Inn keepers, Edith and Chuck were wonderful and a pleasure to converse with.
We went there to bike but almost didn't get it in because of the weather, then the sun came out on Saturday giving us all the time we needed. Chuck set us up with a map of the bike route and off we went. When we returned, we went across the street to the brewery for some great beer.

Bottom line, I would highly recommend the October Country Inn. Especially if you haven't stayed at one before, you might as well stay at the best.

We had a blissful 2 nights stay at Chuck and Edies charming bed and breakfast. Spotlessly clean, with all the comforts of home. They are great hosts and a mine of historical information about the area.

We just returned home from a weekend stay at the October Country Inn with friends. Edie and Chuck are wonderful hosts who met our every request and more. We enjoyed the breakfasts and an enjoyable dinner prepared by Chuck and Edie. The rooms were spacious and comfortable Since we had no real plans when we arrived and all of us were from out of state, they were great about giving us ideas of what was in the area. We look forward to returning again soon.

My husband and I tried out the October Country Inn earlier this month because we needed a place to stay near Killington, where we were skiing for the weekend. We could not have been more pleased with our choice! The innkeepers Chuck and Edie are the perfect combination of friendly and laid-back, so we felt adequately welcomed and very much at home.

The Inn is decorated in the quintessential Vermont farmhouse style (fruited wallpaper in the dining room, wide pine floors, lovely quilts on the beds, tasteful color palettes) and is as impeccably charming as it is clean.

Chuck's daily breakfasts were absolutely delicious, and we very much appreciated the variety of breakfast foods (freshly baked scones, oatmeal with apples and raisins, yogurt / granola, fresh fruits, cold cereals) set out in addition to Chuck's specials. It is exactly what we needed to energize us before a full day on the mountain.

In addition to providing a delight for all the senses, the October Country Inn could not be more reasonably priced. I very much appreciated the room rates, especially compared to the other lodging in the Killington area.

With such great rates, a prime location (15min drive from the lifts), and endless charm, my husband and I returned to the OCI to ski Killington again two weeks later and will most likely return again and again in the future. I cannot imagine finding a nicer place to stay!

Just got back from a week long stay in Vermont where our first B&B was the OCI. The drive in via New York State was amazing and very scenic; we really enjoyed coming into this part of Vermont. Chuck & Edie were delightful hosts and very nice company. The inn is very well maintained and on a nice piece of property. It is well decorated and has a great country inn feel. I can imagine during the winter it is even nicer and cosier. As it was, it was a bit humid and hot when we stayed and you could feel it throughout the inn.

The food was absolutely phenomenal. We stayed at 3 other B&Bs on the trip and the food at OCI was quite possibly the best we had. It was Italian night so we had humongous free range organic chicken (garlic encrusted), eggplant parmigiano, pesto spaghetti, mixed green salad, and homemade bread. It was awesome.

Chuck has an encyclopedic knowledge of trails in the area and gave us very helpful advice and directions. He also packed us an amazing pair of sandwiches for the trail.

We had a great time at OCI. Our only small complaint was that our room did not have AC (just a fan) and with the humidity things felt a bit damp. But the room was clean and well maintained and the bathroom was as well, so it's hard to complain. We'd definitely come back!
