I came to Middlebury ( my family's home) to deal with family business. This was my first stay at the Swift House. What a lovely refuge. I booked the Woodward Room, in the Carriage House. The room is huge, the bed was so comfortable and the privacy and peace were worth so much. Breakfast each morning was delicious and I... More

Overall a really great place, large nice room, kind owners and staff, wonderful location, etc but read on if you are planning to bring a pet. I booked a room through a third party website a couple of days before my recent visit and after reading through the third- party sites listing for the Inn believed we could bring our... More

Vermont25, Owner at Swift House Inn, responded to this review

The third party website used for this reservation allows us as owners little input and only gives two choices to list our dog policy. That is "pets allowed upon request. Charges may apply" We have no way to list our pet policy or which rooms are dog friendly. In this incident we called the guest as soon as the reservation... More

This is a very nice place to stay when visiting Vermont. The owners are very nice, and very accommodating. The linens in the rooms are excellent. The food is first rate. The Inn is a short walk into town for dinner, shops and entertainment. The only reason I failed to give a 5 star rating is because we stayed in... More

The whole experience was first rate. The bed was incredibly comfortable and had high quality linens. We booked the Garden Room and had a private patio and private entrance. Thumbs up for that. Loved the whirlpool tub in the bathroom. Just the thing after a day of hiking in the Green Mountains. Breakfast is a full meal cooked to order... More

I am new to the North East region and was just staying at the Swift House inn until my Master's program started, I could not have been luckier to have chosen it! It really began my 6 weeks here on a great foot. I honestly forgot it was a inn with people you didn't know, it felt so homey and... More

I tend to avoid inns and bed and breakfasts--they often feel too fussy or intimate to me. I tend to view hotels as a "get up and go" situation. Yet when I knew I had a night in Middlebury, Vermont this summer, I selected the Swift House, and now I'm a fan of the well-run Inn. Everything about this place... More

For an overnight trip to central VT, my wife and I decided to take out mothers to the swift house inn. We booked them the Stewart room (with two twin beds) ,and we were in the Swift room, which included a huge bathroom, and a walk out large deck with a wrought iron table and chairs. It was lovely to... More

Just back from the Swift House. My family is from Middlebury so we visit from Boston each summer to see our relatives. After staying at many other hotels and inns in town, we discovered the Swift House a few years ago and were surprised we had never found it before. The location is excellent -right off the town center but... More

My wife and I stayed at the Swift House Inn many times when our daughter was at Middlebury College. It was superb in every respect. Coming back was like visiting good friends again. The bar is very well stocked, the food is fantastic, the breakfast is included and the rooms are clean, picturesque and quite. This has to be on... More

Though a frequent guest at the Swift House Inn over the past four years, I have withheld any review of the Swift House Inn until now in order to provide the most honest and frank assessment possible. With our child now graduated from Middlebury College, we won't be back for a while at least... but we will plan to return,... More
