We stayed at the Inn in September while in town to visit friends. We picked this Inn for the central location, proximity to our friend's home, and generally for a relative lack of other options in Montpelier. The photos online looked nothing like our room. We were put up in the main house, which is quaint on the outside and in severe need of updating on the inside. It was surprising that the Inn wasn't still using pink toilet paper. I'd hate to see what the inside of the second house looks like as the outside had peeling paint and sagging shutters. In our main house room, the bathroom was like that of a motel (plastic shower) and the small bedroom was poorly decorated with yellowing paint and rumpled bedspreads. The proprietors aren't very welcoming; we felt like we were intruding at every turn. After being barked at by the owner while wandering through the dining room in search of coffee our first morning there, we decided that it was best to spend as little time at the Inn as possible, forgoing the continental breakfast. The school portraits of their children dotting the Inn make it uncomfortable to be in common rooms as you feel like you are in the owner's private space. Like other reviewers mention, housekeeping and hospitality were both lacking. The combination of the two makes a laughingstock out of the "Housekeeping Tips" envelope prominently displayed in your room quite. The enjoyment did find at the Inn was central to the wrap around patio. To drink tea in the morning or to enjoy a bottle of farmer's market cheese and wine while enjoying a book in the afternoon, the deck is truly delightful. Unfortunately, the deck does not make up for the lack of service and style. While we will be back to visit our friends, we will look for other options for accommodations.
