What an absolute gem! We’ve stayed in lots of hotels/inns around the world, but The Vermont Inn has easily leaped into one of our favorites. After a cancelled Disney trip due to COVID-19, and the loss of a very close family member in June, we decided to book The Vermont Inn just for a chance to disconnect and get away from all that had been thrown our way this year. We are so glad we did, as it was exactly what our family needed right now.
From the moment you pull in, you’re greeted by the beautiful mountain-view that The Vermont Inn overlooks. The building is an old converted farmhouse. It is well maintained, and is carrying on some of the beautiful, unique characteristics of a building its age.
The lobby feels homey, and there are plenty of communal/social areas including a lounge with lots of children’s movies to choose from, an adorable pub-style bar, and a dining area for breakfast. The innkeepers, Kayla and Mike, were incredibly welcoming – giving us a tour and offering an abundance of freshly baked cookies every day. Mike built us a campfire on our second evening and provided us with all the fixings to make s’mores!
We stayed in the Windham Suite on the second level. The room was the perfect size for our family of three (two adults, one child). It was clean, cozy, and had air conditioning. There was a gas fireplace as well, which makes me want to return in the winter just to utilize and appreciate it! The queen bed was a bit uncomfortable, but doable. The mattress on the pull-out couch that my daughter slept it was actually surprisingly very comfortable!
The bathroom is huge in this particular suite! The jetted bathtub was much larger in person than it looked in the booking photos (which was okay by us!) We used it a lot, and it was one of our favorite amenities to the suite. The shower was a great size, and the water pressure was perfection.
The hot tub was closed due to COVID-19, but the pool remained open. We used it every day during our stay. It was clean and well-maintained.
There is a sauna which was also kept very clean. It was easy to use, and very relaxing; especially after a cold swim.
Continental breakfast is included, or you can order a country-style breakfast for a very reasonable price. We ordered the country-style breakfast, and Kayla, the innkeeper, cooked for us. The food was delicious – there was no need to check out breakfast spots as the breakfast here was great!
On our last day, we asked for a late checkout which they were happy to allow. We went down to give our goodbyes and gratitude, and Kayla had a container of still-hot, freshly baked cookies waiting for us. We enjoyed them all on our drive home.
All-in-all, the hospitality at The Vermont Inn has set the bar high for our future vacations. We were so impressed by Kayla and Mike’s ability to maintain such a high level of care and thoughtfulness throughout our entire trip. We left feeling like we made new friends and a new favorite place. We will return one day!
