My boyfriend and I spent 4 blissful nights in one of the dog friendly cottages with working fireplace. The owner was very accommodating when I changed my reservation the day before to another cottage that included a kitchenette. He was also very understanding and affable when I told him that our puppy had thrown up on the bedding - that we had washed the covers and one of them had developed a hole. He did not charge us for replacing the comforter after I offered to pay for the damages. Throughout the entire stay he was very genial and helpful.
The cottage arrangement could not have been better suited for our needs. It was cute, spacious and clean. The wood paneling was lovely as was the ability to make a fire every evening. We loved being able to come and go as we pleased without having to tromp through the house and awkwardly running into other guests. We chose this inn specifically because of the lack of strict pet policies. We were able to keep the puppy in the room some days with no worries. And we chose a cottage for privacy. Mission accomplished! I really enjoyed the sense of camping in the woods in a cabin.
Breakfast was scanty but we figured out by the second day that we could enjoy a delicious breakfast down the road at the local diner. With room prices so affordable we did not mind having to pay for breakfast.
The traffic noises took a little getting used to the first night but being from NYC this did not really bother us at all. By the second night we were sleeping like babies without a care in the world.
All in all we would highly recommend this inn for travelers who want to experience Vermont at an authentic rustic inn.
