“4 Nights At a Grand Old Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My hubby and I stayed here while visiting family in the area and we loved it. In fact, my husband is still talking about the breakfasts. We stay a quite a few B&Bs through the year, and by far, this was the very best spot for breakfast. Each day was different - stuffed French Toast, individual baked eggs in ramekins, sausage, bacon, egg casserole dish, cinnamon swirl coffee cake - all home made and truly delicious. The house is beautiful and the inn keepers and staff are welcoming, informational and we would stay there again. Also, there is a park directly across the street from the house with that's safe and pretty if you just want to get out.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor which had an adjoining bathroom to another room. We didn't mind sin...

I just spent a great night at the Marble Mansion Inn with my husband and three friends. Upon our arrival, Sharon gave us a tour and a historical account of the Allen family who originally built and lived in the mansion. The mansion, built in 1866, is decorated with antique furnishings and lovely elaborate chandeliers. Both Sharon and her husband Greg are charming and knowledgeable hosts. They were very helpful with all of our needs. Sharon presented a delicious breakfast, and even provided recipes for the coffee cake and egg souffle. Greg suggested a great route for the men in our group (who were biking) to take to our next destination! All in all, it was a wonderful visit!!

Room Tip: There are only stairs, so rooms on the 2nd floor are more convenient than on the 3rd. floor.

On the wall of the sunroom of the inn an artist had stenciled the phrase, to the effect of "enter as strangers, leave as friends." The quote shows up at a lot of different establishments. Here, it is true. David gave us a grand tour of the most beautiful B&B at which we have ever overnighted. His wife Sharon is a marvelous cook, and we had an amazing edible send-off. We are bikers, so a week this year and a week last year we were staying in B&Bs. This one is by far our favorite. Go and let them treat you royally. There isn't a lot to do in Fair Haven. But in the summer, visit the marble quarry in Dorset and sun on the rocks & jump into the freshwater stream...or visit the first golf course in the country. Go to North Hero and walk the causeway. Or simply sit in the park across from the Marble Mansion. This place is a real find!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room, if it's available, with a view of the park.

My family and I stayed at the Marble Mansion Inn on June 22-23 for a one night stay! All I have to say is that the wonderful staff treated us like we were family spending the night. They catered to our every need!

Clean and beautifully decorated rooms! The most comfortable pillow top beds I have laid on in years! A quiet porch and backyard hammock for the kids to relax and hang out on! Delicious breakfast the next morning-egg soufflé (a must have), sausage and much more! A warm and inviting atmosphere that we just didn't want to leave!
Thank you Marble Mansion Inn Staff for making our stay a True home away from home!!

My boyfriend and I have a very nice stay at the Marble Mansion Inn. We didn't spend much time at the Inn its self due to being at a wedding but the time that we did spend there we felt right at home. The bed was very comfy and the breakfast was delicious. I even left something behind and within 2 days I had it back! Thank you for a great experience!

Marble Mansion Inn is a true treasure tucked inside the quaint town of Fair Haven, VT. Sharon and Greg welcomed us the moment we walked into their lovely Bed & Breakfast and made us immediately feel right at home. Each of the rooms at the mansion are incredibly cozy and so inviting.
We stayed at the Marble Mansion Inn while visiting our son and his family who live nearby. Sharon and Greg graciously allowed us to extend an invitation to our family to join us for a lavish breakfast in their beautiful sun-room. We so appreciated their wonderful hospitality and friendliness.
Sharon is superb in the kitchen creating the most delectable and delicious breakfasts! Everything made by her hands is simply scrumptious.
Thank you, Sharon and Greg, for treating us along with our family with such warmth and for helping to make our stay with you so wonderful and memorable.

An absolutely charming inn and an equally as charming innkeeper! I stayed here over Easter weekend with my partner and my mom while we were working on a summer home that we recently purchased nearby. The inn is a wonderful historical treasure with intricate crown moldings, beautifully carved fireplaces, and antique parquet floors - they don't make them like this anymore folks! The ample guestrooms were beautifully appointed with down pillows and luxurious bed linens. You almost need a ladder to get into bed - they are that high. We had three breakfasts at the Marble Mansion, each better than the last. Egg soufflé, homemade orange scones, and a cinnamon bun dish that I am still dreaming about. The food was simply outstanding, you will not believe it. Lastly, and probably most importantly, Sharon and Theresa were the perfect hosts. Personable, knowledgeable, and just downright friendly people. Sharon knows everything there is to know about the history of the inn, so if you are a history buff like we are you will love listening to her stories about it. Simply stated, it was a perfect Easter weekend.
