Meeting our very dear friends at this wonderful place. All aspects of this Inn are impeccable and geared to give the best service. The breakfast was well prepared and any additional wishes were promptly granted. The establishment was clean and inviting. Michelle, the Innkeeper made sure all the details were to her standards and satisfaction. We had fresh flowers in... More

Our perfectly modern room was super comfortable with every amenity we could ever need. Dining at their Jessica's restaurant was sublime. Such delicious fine dining at reasonable prices! Prior to dining, we enjoyed a drink in the quaint bar--it was just so cool. The perfect weather allowed us to savor breakfast in their outdoor dining area. And then we walked... More

No complaints in the least- everything was great! From the very helpful and kind front desk person, to the dining room staff, and the owner stopping by to chat, it was a great experience, we would recommend to anyone to take advantage of the comfortable rooms and the beautiful setting.

We are glad we chose the Swift House for our one night in Middlebury, VT. It has been beautifully restored and actually consists of 3 separate buildings. The grounds and gardens are very lovely. Rather than stay at the main house, we stayed at the Gate House at the corner of High St. and Steward Lane. The Gate House was... More

We loved our stay at The Swift House Inn. Perfect location for a group of triathletes getting together to train for a week. Close to Lake Dunmore, great bike rides, and the Vermont Sun Fitness Center. A great experience for all. Breakfast was super everyday. Already booked for next year! Thanks for the great stay.

I booked here because of high trip advisor ratings. Originally booked in main house but because the room had a queen size bed asked to be moved to room with King bed (extra money). Ended up in carriage house located immediately to rear of main house. Very nice but there was smoking area just outside our building. I'm a reformed... More

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

We and our wonderful staff try hard to make every visit great. Our buildings, decks and porches are non smoking and policies clear. We have no designated smoking areas except outside. Our few smoking guests are typically very polite, it appears here that one must have been smoking near the outside entrance. The Carriage House has our largest rooms with... More

One word - WOW!! This is the kind of B&B that sets the bar high for all other Inns in Vt and elsewhere! Trust me when I say that you will never want to leave this perfectly appointed and no stone left unturned Inn. My husband and I have stayed at the Swift House since 1989. Our favorite room is...

We always would seek out and prefer a unique place to stay over a Corporate hostelery. Nothing wrong with Corporation places but they have no soul....no atmosphere! What a hard working couple they are who own and run Swift House. This shows in the quality of the house, the cleanliness, the attention to detail. The welcome from Jacqueline was excellent... More

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.

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
