We stayed at the Strong House for several days in July of this year in the Empire Room. Although the grounds of the B&B were very nice, with a nice gazebo and lawns, we were very disappointed in a couple of things. Our room, the Empire, was in the front of the Inn, and although the Inn is technically on "Main Street", Main Street is really Route 22A. We didn't notice this as being a problem until we went to sleep . . . or try to sleep. Route 22A must be a bypass because the amount of tractor trailers is unbelievable. There were hundreds of them going by each night . . . all night. Even trying to eat outside at the restaurants in town was nasty - the traffic and trucks were non-stop.
The other problem was the bathroom and shower. Although the Inn advertises an "en suite" bathroom, the bathroom is about the size of a bathroom on an airplane. It is claustrophobic. The room did not have a bath, but only a shower - get this - located inside a closet. You needed to open a closet door, then the shower was inside the closet. This was not of course mentioned on the website.
Lastly, make sure you aren't picky - breakfast is no choice . . . just put in front of you.
The town of Vergennes is very nice, and the Innkeepers also nice at this B&B. Just wanted to give an honest review of what we experienced.
