I will be honest, driving up, we were a touch concerned. It had a bit of an Adams Family feeling. And the paint was chipping. Upon entry it wasn't much different, the decor was turn of the century with porcelain dolls and a ton of teddy bears. Not what I was expecting at all. However. With that said, the host... More

You can't judge a book by its cover and you can't always judge a B&B by the exterior appearance. First impression is that Silas Griffith Inn is badly in need of an exterior paint job. Don't let this put you off. I was met by Cathie, the proprietress, who is an exceedingly friendly and welcoming woman. She showed me to... More

Silas Griffith Inn is very small inn, actually a B&B. The owner Cathy is extremely nice, friendly, creative and wonderful host. She cooks very original and tasty food for breakfast and every guest is cared for with special attention. The house is old and full of history, but also cozy and welcoming. Don't expect to find polished perfection there, as... More

I actually am appalled by some of the poor reviews left here by people. Yes, the inn is old and in need of some repairs, but a.) I don't really think people understand the amount of money it takes to completely renovate a building of that size...especially when it is most likely taxed to all hell b.) When you're vacationing...

We stayed two nights at the Silas Griffith Inn in order to spend a few days hiking with our dog in the Manchester VT area. The innkeeper was a friendly, cheerful woman who clearly loved dogs.

The inn is in disrepair (don't believe signs about historic renovations). Basic upkeep tasks are ignored and even arriving after dark the discarded bikes, tools and assorted trash was evident in the bushes and around the buildings. Don't waste your money.

Found it from a friend. Inn is in process of restoration which takes considerable time. Kathy prepares your breakfast from a limited menu but all excellent.
