The establishment has a great location, it is a beautiful, traditional inn with a lovely dining room and some great amenities. The owner is very accommodating and very kind. He was very nice to us. Our shower wasn't working (no way to adjust the water temperature) and he allowed us to move to a nicer room. I had work to do, and he let me use the dining room one night to do it.
Having said that, the inn in need of some love. It needs some reinvestment in both time and money, and I'm not sure the owner's heart is in it. If you're only staying a couple of days midweek, it would be a good choice. The prices are good and you would be able to select a good room. But I don't know that I'd go on a weekend in season.
As an aside,.. If you don't know the story, the owners were a married professional couple who left the rat race and opened an inn in Vermont. It's a great story, one I aspire to, but it has an unhappy ending. One of the partners died. By all accounts she was a wonderful person. Everyone in town seems to have liked her a great deal. That was nearly a year ago, so it should come as no surprise that the place has gone a bit off track. I hope to see it blossom again.
