This was our third trip to the Inn. It had been many years since our last. We enjoyed ourselves very much and plan to go again in the next year or so.
We took advantage of the two nights for one price deal. It is even better than it sounds because you get a terrific breakfast from an extensive menu included in the room price. The room also included day passes for my wife and I at the Grafton Ponds X-country ski area (worth $36). It also has free parking.
We ate one night in the restaurant at the Inn. It was good, but pricey ($110 with tip). You could easily spend $200 with a bottle of wine.
The Town of Grafton strikes you as almost too perfect. It looks like something Walt Disney would create as the ideal Vermont village. Actually that's close to the truth as the village is run by a foundation that keeps everything pristine.
This is your place to go if you want to sit before the fire, or on the porch in the summer, and read a good book. There is not much else to do. The Inn is lovely however and is a treat by itself.
A couple of minor things... The cold water in the shower did not work so it was very hot. Also, the classic four poster bed, which looked so nice, was hard. These little things were taken in stride and didn't detract from our loving the place.
The bar/lounge area is a large, rustic barn type room with a lot of easy chairs and couches, games, books, internet access and roaring fireplace. Nice.
