The b&b itself is very disappointing and over priced. Plus, she let her dog bark for awhile around 3:30 a.m. Being ill and sleep extremely precious, we were appalled that she did not seem to see barking dog as a problem. I was unable to get back to sleep. Others reported the dog barking after 10:00p.m. All rooms are basically...

I knew I would hear from these guests again! As I was taking my dog from the third floor to the first floor to go outside at 3:00 a.m., she suddenly stopped on the second floor (where we have three guest rooms) and started barking. She hasn't done this at night before. I was very embarrassed. I got her downstairs...

My room was in a separate building. I found it odd that a first floor, road facing room with a bay window would be booked to a woman traveling alone. I don't think Montpelier is a high crime city; nevertheless, I didn't care for the location of the room. I wondered the whole time if the shades did indeed afford...

Wow! I wish this guest had let me know she had a problem with the room. It would never occur to me that a woman traveling alone would object to this room, but obviously she felt uncomfortable. If I had known that, I could have tried to put her in a second floor room. My sense is that her discomfort...

The innkeeper couldn't be bothered to physically show us to our room, the breakfast staff was surly, the room was cramped and the road noise loud. It's hard to believe the mix of these reviews, but our experience was not one we would care to repeat. I think we would have been better off at a Motel 6.

This guest came at our busiest time of the year, Vermont's foliage season. The traffic inside and out was heavier than usual. I am sorry the guest had trouble with noise. Room 7 is 12 by 17, not including the bathroom. While hotel rooms may be larger than this, it is hardly small for a room in a Victorian home....

Room was clean, bathroom felt like a cheap motel. Very impersonal treatment by owner and staff. Noisy street with traffic very early in the morning. OK breakfast, not plentiful which was ok with me. Orange juice was very good.

I am sorry this guest did not have a good stay. He came at our busiest time of year, so perhaps traffic was busier than usual. It is normally a pretty quiet street. I am surprised to hear that the guest did not think breakfast was plentiful. We always offer eggs cooked to order and a sweet entree such as...

We had a room with a separate kitchen and 2 seperate bedrooms with on suite bathrooms. It was located in a seperate house. We were told to take the back entrance...we discovered a part of the house covered in spider webbs... It looked abandoned. In our room the fridge was still dirty from the previous tenants ( breadcrumbs and sticky...

The two reviews submitted on September 16 do not sound like they describe the same B&B! One guest had a terrific experience and the other urges people to stay away. I do not recall why the unhappy guest was told to use the back entrance. I think we may have had wet paint on the front steps. Since the back...

We were at Betsy's under difficult circumstances - one of our party was going through a very hard time, and Betsy showed her such kindness. We will always appreciate that. The room was nice, spacious, and the staff did a great job in keeping it very clean. Breakfast was great, the breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful, and it...

I did not meet personally the owners, but I was welcomed by the greatest staff ever in the morning. Moreover, i wanna say it was really clean, and cured.

My partner and I spent 3-1/2 weeks at Betsy's just as Spring was coming into its full glory. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. Staff was warm and welcoming and made us feel like family. Breakfasts were outstanding--plentiful and delicious. The room was quiet and cozy and shared a sitting room and kitchen which we used when...

I am a long time guest of Betsy's. As an antique and auction person, I love each room for it's great finds. The Victorian parlor furniture is some of the best I have seen in Vemont. Each room has some piece of interest. Breakfast is wonderful. I found the review about cleanliness confusing at best. I have never found any...

Hi, This is Betsy from Betsy’s B&B. Thank you, Jean O, for your kind comments. Because Jean told me that she had posted a review, I looked at the site and the prior reviews. I was horrified by some of the reviews. I am confident that I am doing some things right because I have been in business for over...

We've been to Betsy's twice, once a couple of years ago and returned for a recent trip. We weren't bowled over on the first trip and tried to find another place, but it was the only available B+B in our price range...we had found it perfectly serviceable, but lacking in warmth and the breakfast was just so so. This time...
