The views really are amazing and the inn is situated close to some amazing national parks. Be warned if you go in the summer, the mosquitoes are fierce! Bring gallons of repellent.
We stayed in the main house and it was pretty unremarkable. The room was nice and clean but pretty no frills. I've stayed in nicer rooms and spent less. The room did have a private balcony which was a nice touch but aforementioned mosquitoes made enjoying it difficult. Also, although the room was on the 2nd floor, you could hear every sound in the house so we were woken up early every morning as the staff made breakfast.
We made our reservations months in advance and purchased a dinner in their supposedly critically acclaimed dining room. We were staying mid-week and they were NOT that busy. We told them when we made our reservation that we wanted vegan meals and they said this would be no problem. When we got there, our dinner consisted of grilled vegetables with olive oil and salt and pepper. Not the caliber of meal we had in mind for the money we spent. For breakfast they offered us oatmeal and fruit.
Although the website says they have dial up access for internet, it's basically useless. The modem is a 19k connection. Don't even bother trying. It will take 20 minutes to load one web page.
During our stay in VT we also stayed at Lilac Inn. Their grounds are beautiful, their rooms are spectacular and they made us vegan french toast and vegan pancakes! If you are looking for a romantic stay in VT consider Lilac Inn instead. They are much more capable of accommodating special food requests. They also have high speed wireless internet, cable in every room and are also close to lots of state parks.
We also ate dinner at Inn at Weathersfield. Make this place #1 on your dining to-do list in VT. The chef there is beyond amazing. He cooked for both myself, my husband and our non-vegetarian families, and everyone raved about the food. They also have very romantic outdoor seating with a firepit. I can't stress this enough, have dinner at this place!
