We really enjoyed the hospitality and generosity of Barbara, the owner and innkeeper. We have stayed in many B&B’s around many parts of the U.S. and Europe and have always found that the host(s) dictate the personality of the establishment and Bailey’s Mills is no different. Barbara has created a warm, welcoming, comfortable and casual environment that makes staying there... More

This is just a great place to stay. Amazing history, beautiful natural surroundings, and a Vermont breakfast you will never forget. We had cheese and muffins before a sit-down egg/bacon breakfast and finished with real VT blueberry pie! Barbara, the owner/host, is everything you want and love about VT.

Barbara is a gracious host, that is full of information to make your stay pleasurable. We stayed 3 nights, breakfast was excellent everyday with plenty of variety. Stay long enough to do the usual tourist stuff. Then ask Barbara questions about local stops and take her recommendations. Barbara is a interesting conversationalist. Sometimes you have to drill down to find... More

We've been visiting Bailey's Mills for many years, as it's become an annual tradition each summer. We come for the peace and quiet, the beautiful and historic surroundings, tasty breakfasts, and the warm hospitality. This is an ideal place for couples or family. We've done both weekend and week-long vacations. I endorse the many excellent ratings below.

We have been visiting Bailey's Mills B&B since our eldest daughter (now 18) was a toddler. Each year, this slice of heaven pulls us back for a visit. A fascinating house (a former mill/general store/dance hall) with a warm and wonderful host (Barbara Thaeder) and fantastic breakfasts makes for a magical place. The property is a wonderful place to relax,... More

Barbara is a wonderful hostess. She is kind, helpful, and a very interesting woman. We enjoyed staying at Bailey's very much. The path that starts at the house is beautiful and the perfect walk. The house is next to a stream, providing the serene music of rushing water. The house is cozy and elegant, the library full of books and... More

My new wife and I started our honeymoon in Vermont by staying 2 nights at Baileys Mills. We have nothing but good things to say about the house and our hostess, Barbara. Her breakfasts were exceeded only by her hospitality. Barbara took us on a 2 hour or so hike thru the hills that was wonderful. She told us the... More
