We stayed at The Governor’s House for our wedding weekend in the fall and it was a tremendous success! The beautiful fall setting and antique ambiance of the house was magical. Staying with immediate family in the charming rooms and getting to eat breakfast together, as well as our reception dinner really lent to the cozy romantic feel. It was a special weekend and Suzanne, our host, really was attuned to all the details so we could enjoy our day. Suzanne is an amazing cook as well and her breakfasts can't be missed!
I have just returned from spending a weekend at Governor's House and I cannot wait to return. Suzanne hosts a number of Jane Austen weekends through the course of the year, so I took a chance on one. I didn't know what to expect, but I enjoyed myself thoroughly and made some new friends as well. The house itself is charming and Suzanne is a very detail oriented person. Everything is just so and scrupulously clean and comfortable. If you like to read she has shelves and shelves of books to choose from (wish I had had the time) and there are games too. The people who attended the weekend were diverse, engaging, and very interesting. We learned a bit about the Regency period, about Jane Austen's life, enjoyed a genuine afternoon tea, experienced a dinner with Regency foods (all delicious), took a carriage ride, and some of us took the opportunity to do some sewing on new regency appropriate hats and learned how to do country style dancing. Suzanne had a number of very knowledgeable people helping to put on some of the events. They were friendly and supportive of we rookies. Thank you, Bonnie and Hope. You helped to make the weekend a great one. There are a number of great rooms in the house to choose from. I'm sure you'll be comfortable in one of them. I had a small room near the back of the house but there are larger ones with fireplaces and private baths too. It's close to Stowe and there are restaurants nearby. Go and see Suzanne-especially if you like a beautiful old home. I can't wait to return.…
3 day wedding package included 2meals /day very roomy restored mansion with modern ammenities . we had 10 people and got a chance to learn more about each other. Would highly recommend for a small intimate get together the leaf follage was spectacular and close to major ski areas like Stowe etc. I would return again in a heart beat.
Beautiful property in quaint New England town. Rooms spacious and clean. Electric fireplaces in rooms have been retrofitted into original fireplaces. Beds very comfortable. No shower- just a soaking tub with a european shower handle. Suzanne runs a tight ship and seemingly without any help! She was helpful in planning our time in the area. Breakfast, served in lovely dining room, is very good. Lots of extra perks like cookies and fruit on hall sideboard, sherry in every room, CD player with soothing CS's. Would definitely go back.
We spent a weekend in late September in this charming B&B. The inn itself is stunningly restored, making you feel like you are stepping back in time. Breakfast provided both days was exquisite and well thought out. We stayed in the Pineapple room, which has a shared bathroom with another room. We were hesitant at first, but it was really no trouble at all. The view of the back yard is breath taking, especially this time of year. We greatly appreciated the lower density capacity and that all guests are asked to be vaccinated at this time.
