Lovely bed and breakfast on a beautiful street. Very quiet and restful. Comfortable beds and nice breakfast in the morning. Surroundings were beautiful. Great spot for pictures. Our room was very nice, clean and bathroom had lovely soaps.

Description
The Lilac Inn is a luxury romantic Vermont Country Inn and Boutique Bed and Breakfast known for romantic Vermont getaways, custom Vermont destination wedding packages and special family celebrations - in any ...More season. Featured in Yankee, Country Living and Vermont magazines, the feel throughout is that of a "small luxury hotel with personal service to match". Nine individually decorated rooms, including five rooms with king size beds. Each morning begins at your individual table with a cooked to order three course gourmet Vermont breakfast. The Inn is located on Park Street, the prettiest street in Vermont in the quaint, welcoming village of Brandon. Located midway between Middlebury and Rutland, Brandon is an unspoiled village in the authentic Currier & Ives tradition that has been tastefully updated to suit the needs of today's visitor. Less

We are not near any Metro stops, as there is not a subway system in Vermont as we are a rural state. There is AMTRAK service to Rutland which is 20 miles to the south.
