“Elopement Package”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

My fiancee and I are planning a church wedding and celebration for later in the year, but wanted to go somewhere just the two of us for a "getaway and elope" type of deal (we live in a state where same-sex marriage isn't yet allowed). We decided on the Governor's House after reading many reviews, and we were not disappointed! Our room was very nice - the food was great - and the owner took care of EVERYTHING, including a private dinner for just the two of us after the ceremony! It was the least stressful part of our wedding planning so far. We had a peaceful and joy-filled weekend in a beautiful part of the state, and I am dying to try out some of the recipes of the marvelous food we ate while we were there!

Room Tip: We stayed in the English room, which was very nice - but no shower (sitdown tub only) and it's o...

My girlfriend and I stayed over a long winter weekend and had a wonderful, romantic time. Suzanne was the perfect host, a great person to talk to and efficient and thoughtful behind the scenes.

The house itself is lovely with tasteful antiques and cozy spaces. Breakfast was terrific.

Dining options nearby are somewhat limited so make a reservation at a good restaurant in Montpelier and then return to The Governor's House to unwind and relax.

This is my second time at the Governor’s House in Hyde Park Vermont. Both times I attended the Jane Austen Weekends. The Bed and Breakfast is full of character and charm, extremely well maintained and clean, very good value for the money. A great collection of books and DVD’s are available at the Inn.

During my first stay we stayed at the English Room my personal favourite of all the rooms. During the second time we stayed in the French room another beautiful room with lovely views. Suzanne Boden is the perfect hostess, very caring, friendly and helpful. She is a great cook her breakfasts, dinners and English afternoon teas are simply delicious. Her Austen quizzes and quite challenging but at the same time quite fun and enjoyable.

The Governor’s House in Hyde Park is the perfect getaway for me in New England and I look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: The English room has old charm, quite spacious with a fire place and lovely views.

Extremely comfortable, clean and quiet Inn. The bed was very comfortable and the room was magnificeintly kept. We enjoyed using the jet tub and relaxing in our room for a long weekend. Breakfast each morning was delicious and a nice experience. Suzanne made us feel very comfortable and at home during our stay.

Suzanne and the Inn continue to excel in providing a unique experience. I have been a guest a number of times and our stays there remain special. Suzanne is the perfect hostess and innkeeper and provides individual and thoughtful attention regardless of how full the house might be. We continue to be amazed by the warmth of the decor and our comfortable journey back to a time when thoughtful attention to detail really WAS important.

We have spent quiet weekends at the inn, as well as a special event that really was special.

Breakfasts are great, don't sleep too late.

Room Tip: Check with Suzanne. Decor is different in every room and she is great in matching tastes with avail...

I've stayed at The Governor's House several times, and each time has been a delight. The rooms are each unique and cozy. The food and service are always excellent. Suzanne is a gracious hostess; she attends to every need and she's always full of great ideas for local activities. Those who are environmentally-aware will be happy to know that Suzanne makes every effort to keep her inn as 'green' as possible. This inn is quite possibly my favorite in all of VT. I look forward to my next visit!

Elegant, well-kept inn with gracious service and beautiful location. Suzanne thinks of everything, from an in-house library for children and adults, to game nooks, to finding a snowman outfit for my seven-year-old to play with. Breakfasts were delicious, subtle, and unique.
