We stayed at Grafton Inn when we traveled to Vermont for a wedding. Everything was absolutely amazing. The food was outstanding, the service was exquisite, all of the options for bike riding and for exploring the town were incredible. We will hope to get back to Grafton Inn again!

We have always wanted to stay at the Grafton Inn while making our yearly visit to Vermont. The area is very quiet as expected. The front porch was nice to sit on and relax. The inn has a few other indoor sitting areas as well. I was quite surprised to learn that the rooms do not have refrigerators, microwaves or coffee pots. There is also no common coffee area for guests. This is something that I would have enjoyed, and quite honestly expect nowadays. There are also no television sets anywhere in the buildings. Again, given the quiet nights here in Vermont, I somewhat expected a tv. The staff are pleasant. The grounds are small. You need to drive or bike to the swimming pond and walking trails. Not a bad stay, just some things I wish they would update.

Quintessential, preserved historic Inn in a humble and honest old Vermont town with everything you could ask for. Charming, well taken care of historic buildings. Comfy and homey, but on a grand, exquisite scale (you feel pampered, spoiled, and taken care of while you are here). The Inn, surrounding Inn houses, and town in general is just a beautiful place to spend any amount of time. Ripe for picture taking and relaxing in just about any light. Waking up to the sounds of the nearby woods and river is the perfect way to start your day and enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee. The local general store has literally a little bit of anything you could need. They are continuously investing in preserving and upgrading the property and buildings, and it shows. The love for the place is palpable, and cheer and happiness is in abundance. We cannot wait to go back. The Grafton Inn was the perfect spot for our perfect Vermont wedding. We were fortunate enough to have 3 days of absolutely perfect weather in early May. The Grafton Outdoor center provided plenty of opportunity to get away for some activities during wedding related downtime and was a perfect spot for hosting a "day before" group gathering for some drinks, music, s’mores, and bonfire! A lot of guests commented on how unique, fun, and intimate of an experience it was to have that as part of the weekend. It especially gave us a lot more free time to mingle and reminisce at length with a lot of our guests. The Inn itself was the perfect venue for us. They have multiple outdoor ceremony locations (and the coordinators, Olivia and Angela, are flexible on the setup at each of these), and there are also some well-appointed bad weather indoor backup locations in town. Multitude of perfect picture taking locations are all within a short walk or 5 minute drive or less from the Inn itself too, which was a bonus. We really can't think of much more you could ask for in a wedding venue and team behind the scenes. The Grafton Inn is a beautiful, historic place that doubles as the perfect all-inclusive wedding venue, with an absolute rockstar staff line-up to back it all up. Grafton is now and will be for us for the rest of our days, a truly special, and magical place. Get married here. You will not regret it. <3

We stayed just one night at the Grafton Inn. The Inn was spotless, and the staff very accommodating and professional. Dinner at night was in the Phelps Pub, with a great selection on the menu, very reasonable prices, and also an outstanding waitstaff.

Beautiful room with all the amenities you'd need, delicious food and great service at both the breakfast, which is included, and the Phelps Barn dinner. Phelps Barn had live music and a wonderful, homey, country atmosphere. We did lots of walking at the expansive trail system at the Grafton Outdoors Center right up the street, and around the Nature Museum. Would definitely go back again.

Wow, did we have a great time at my nephew's wedding! The Grafton Inn rolled out the red carpet for us. The old inn is amazing, and our room was phenomenal, so beautiful. We had all kinds of snow-ventures: a bonfire, snowshoeing, walking through the covered bridges during a snowstorm. It was a winter wonderland. We had a great time, young and old alike. The food at the inn was insanely great. The breakfast? Included every morning. So delicious. Absolutely the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had - and I have been keeping careful track over the years. The fireside wedding was beautiful and the reception in the Phelps Barn was the funnest ever - the food? Wowzah! The appetizers just kept coming, the raw bar meant oysters for everyone, the bartender was some kind of genius, and that was all before dinner -- which was so good. And we danced and danced. It was a great wedding. The Grafton Inn was a great venue. I am already planning a weekend getaway to go back as soon as I can. The place is paradise, a retreat just a few hours away from the rat race.

This is our first time at the Grafton Inn, and it was wonderful! They are still dealing (as are we all) with the staffing shortages of Covid, but they were few and far between. Both restaurants (tavern & dining room) were well staffed, and the head chef Neal is producing his usual magic! There are many fun things to do nearby, even in the winter, and that makes the stay even more enjoyable. To be honest, there are few things a simply enjoyable as sitting in front of a fire at one of the quiet rooms at Grafton and reading a good book! Relax and Enjoy!

The Grafton Inn (we fondly know it as The Old Tavern) is an historic inn and cottages, set in rural Vermont snug in the mountains, that started out as a stagecoach stop. We've been many times, with our family or just the two of us, our latest stay in early February. The inn is comfortably furnished with antiques and beautiful rugs, good beds, the rooms sunny and bright, well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful; we often had them come across the street to build a fire in the parlor fireplace of our cottage----cozy on snowy days. Evenings were spent either in their barn pub with a burger or fish/chips, listening to live music, or in the more formal main dining room treating ourselves to filet mignon, mushroom risotto, inn made ice creams and sorbets. The food is wonderful, and the service, especially Joanne and Lisa, perfection. Included with all stays is a huge breakfast of fruit, juice, french toast, eggs benedict, bacon etc. You can work off the calories next door at the well equipped exercise cottage or down the road at Grafton Ponds activity center with cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, all a part of the inn's package. Further afield there are art galleries, downhill skiing, the outlets at Manchester, the larger village of Woodstock, but this visit we mainly read, played games in front of the fire, enjoyed the occasional snowfall and the beautiful little village. This lovely slice of Vermont has kept us returning again and again, occasionally in summer or New England's brilliant fall, but generally in winter, when the snow falls across the meadows and the inn's fireplaces blaze.

Spent a long weekend with family at one of the beautiful homes offered as one of many options at the Grafton Inn. Was also here for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year's in a cozy suite with in-room working fireplace. The Grafton Inn is my happy place where I go to relax and "get away form it all." Been coming back again and again for 46 years! Grafton is the quintessential Vermont village. The Inn is steeped in history and colonial charm. The staff is the best. The food is excellent. You can do as much as you want or as little as you want and come away with great memories. Thank you Angela, Shawn, Morgan, Emily, Lisa, Joann, Jamie, Gabe and all the other staff members who make each stay a pleasure.
