It was some 30 years since our last visit to the Grafton Inn and there have been two notable changes. The Inn has been remodeled essentially making two small rooms into one nice homely large room and that is very nice. The dining experience has dramatically deteriorated thou and since we are foodies I do not expect to return to... More

Attended a family wedding onsite and it exceeded my expectations. Grafton, Vermont was off the beaten path but with the Inn's detailed driving directions made it worthwhile. You can be on the road to Grafton in no time. My room surrounded me in comfort, foods were fresh and yummy using local cuisine. This, coupled with attentive service truly made it... More

This was our third trip to the Grafton Inn. Previously, it was known as "The Old Tavern". The name and the ownership changed, but the hospitality and amenities didn't. If fact, its better. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. There's no TV. However, this is Vermont, and we come to enjoy ourselves without watching television. The restaurant is still first-rate.... More

I stayed at this hotel on the spur of the moment. I decided to return from Burlington using only back roads and not the major highways. I was happy to find this quaint inn on the way home. The room was very comfortable, quality antique furniture, art and decor. I liked the Grafton Cheese and crackers left in the room.... More

This is an awesome place to visit, especially to get away for for special occasions. It is perfectly located to all the skiing you could ever want as well as the cheese factory. The rooms are very clean and have that luxurious feel to them.

The Grafton Inn was the perfect place to stay during our trip to Vermont. The Inn is cozy and beautiful and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was top notch in both the dining room and in the Phelps Barn. The village was so nice to stroll around and the people in the museums were knowledgeable and really... More

This is such a delightful Inn, we wish we could have stayed longer! A totally quiet environment with few cars and no electrical wires criss-crossing the town, it's perfect for walking to various sites, art galleries, or exploring trails and farms. The Inn itself, with Rosie (a darling beagle mix who LOVES having her belly rubbed and stays near the... More

We did not know eastern Vermont and needed a quiet easy get away from Boston. The Grafton Inn and Grafton provided a relaxing escape. Rooms were great as was the breakfast. The comfortable porch chairs look out on a quiet and beautiful street. Pleasant easy walks in Grantham and short drives to other pretty towns.

The historic Grafton Inn is truly a slice of small town Americana. We went there in the summertime and had a wonderful time swimming in the little pond out back of the Windham House, as well as hiking, biking, swimming and playing with our doggies at the outdoor recreation center approximately one mile down the road. There are enough trails... More
