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

All reviews are very helpful for us. We have replaced doors to help mitigate any noise however the Inn is normally pretty quiet. The blinds are Levelor Cordless with light filtering material. We have switched to light darkening in the Carriage House House and Gate House, the Main House is next. 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

We've had the opportunity to stay at the Swift House Inn around 20 times in the past four years while our daughter attended college in the area. We could not have asked for a better 'home away from home' while we travelled to Vermont. The Inn is simply outstanding, as are the innkeepers, Michelle and Dan. While we liked to... More

We enjoyed our three night stay at the Swift House Inn. The room was nice, but the bed was uncomfortable. When we mentioned this at check out, we received a personal e-mail from the owner letting us know they are in the process of changing the mattresses. The bathroom had a very tiny shower. We were upstairs in the main... More

We have found that mattress preferences are extremely personal and desires vary widely. We have what we believe to be great high end mattresses which are firm with a plush top and our guests appreciate. We get many compliments and seldom a complaint. In 12 years of ownership we are now proactively upgrading the mattresses for the second time and... More
