I first stayed at the Waybury Inn six years ago and on my most recent visit, I found it to be just as comfortable and welcoming as before. The Inn offers 13 different, charming rooms, free wifi, but rooms do not have television. My room (The New England Room) was described as cozy, and as a solo guest, it was fine. A complimentary, full cooked-to-order breakfast is included in the room rate (but not the gratuity, which I found awkward); servings are generous and delicious and I was told that the maple syrup is from the Inn’s own trees.
Apart from the front desk, I found staff to be friendly, informative, and helpful, especially in the dining pub area where I enjoyed a snack on the covered porch overlooking a lovely garden and a light dinner later in the evening. The Inn’s location served me well as I traveled in and around Middlebury, Ripton, Granville, and even Burlington (an easy 1 hour drive away).

Dog-friendly accommodations, deep claw-foot bathtubs, free wireless internet, a dedicated guest PC, and a full service bar are just some of the amenities we offer.
