Every morning when I turn on the computer, I check our Tripadvisor listing to see if anyone has written a review. Today I saw your review and it put a smile on my face. All of the Tavern family take great pride in making every guests experience a special one. I see you stayed at the Ormsby Inn. My parent's stay there and say they say the rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast's are unbelieveable. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and please follow us on Facebook. If you are ever back in Vermont, please join us again. Michael

“Good Meal (and value)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Seems that the local folks always recommend this place. We did have a very nice meal; arrived early and opted for the early bird special (5PM) which was delicious and a good value.
