“Fall Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband are finally here. We wanted to go a couple years ago but them the floods changed our plans.
The Inn is quaint and all we hoped it would be. There Is much to do right in the village of Wilmington just outside the front door. I live the big swing on the front porch. The fall foliage is absolutely breathtaking. We're still here and I can't wait to come back!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

If you would like to see the fall colors this is the place to stay. The staff is great and the location can not be improved upon. You are at the bottom of Vermont on highway 9 and 100. Very small town with only 1 stop light.

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same.

The place is kept up and clean but needs updating. Small bathroom, no A/C (window fans available). In a small town with a few nice restaurants. No hair dryer (available on request), no iron. Not quite used to lack of amenities that I guess are considered luxuries in this older inn.
Absolutely hated the bathroom--too small to even turn around in...

This is not at all bad for a night but the place needs updating. Not very comfy for long stays of more than one or two days. The bathroom is tiny and the sitting area where the sofa bed was a long narrow room in room 205. The place was clean but dark with old carpeting . The location is very convenient. There are no eating facilities at all in the inn. Would not recommend this place for families but ok for a couple.

The crafts Inn is a historic landmark, hotel apartments. I was there in July which is off season as they cater more to the winter skiers. The hotel staff was amiable yet business like. My unit was a attic type apartment with ceilings that angled steeply. The phone wake up service, which is automated did not work even after they claimed it had been repaired. Diane, the most pleasant staff member immediately changed my television after complaining it was not functioning correctly. Overall, if you are interested in summer quietness, this quaint town of Wilmington and Crafts Inn is your kind of place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear of the building, as they are not attic type apartments

This was an "extra vacation" week with our timeshare exchange so we weren't expecting much which was good. The inn is so lovely from the outside but the rooms were very outdated and small. We had a one bedroom and the bed was only double. The bath was in the kitchen - weird. The office people were helpful and very nice. We discovered a front room which had coffee, rocking chairs, and magazines for guests. Our room overlooked an indoor pool which was closed so it was quiet but in different seasons it could have been noisy.The grounds were lovely and Wilmington is special and quaint. It was a good location to tour Brattleboro and Bennington and drive to many covered bridges. Keene, NH, was close enough to visit relatives twice. After initial disappointment in old furnishings etc, I have to admit the inn grew on me. The restauant Dots across the street was very good for breakfast and lunch. We had a delicious and not expensive lobster dinner at Anchor Restaurant around the corner.

We were looking forward to our stay in Vermont at the Crafts Inn. The building is beautiful and old, in a central location to downtown Wilmington. A small, quaint little town that has overcome devastating flooding after Hurricane Irene.

Our one bedroom unit was outdated in decor, which we expected after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor however it was clean (the carpet could have used a deep cleaning though). The kitchen had plenty of dishes and more kitchen equipment than other time shares we have stayed at (but bring your own sponge). We are lucky we stayed there a week after the New England heat wave since there is no a/c. They provided two box fans which we used daily to cool the room down. Wi-fi worked well albeit a little slow at times.

The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of towels. No hand towels though, only washcloths and bath towels. No toiletries minus dispensers filled with a mystery soap.

Sadly, the noise from the unit above us really hampered our stay. It sounded like a troupe of gymnastics constantly performing and we could hear every footstep. I do understand that there's not too much the Inn could do about misbehaved children but we made it clear the noise was bothering us and the staff was indifferent to it.

If we stay there again I will insist on an upper floor unit.

Wilmington has some cute shops and a lake closely. I'd recommend visiting Bennington and Manchester if you're there and need day trips.
