We were heading to Springfield VT for a friends birthday party. I found the Hartness House and I'm so glad I did. Walking into the house was so cool. The home is still decorated to the period but feels warm and homey. We arrived a bit early and had no problem checking into our room a bit early. We were... More

We'd Love to give a better than 3 stars rating, but the truth is there's a lot of work yet to be done here at this funky inn. The good news: breakfast was lovely, the chef is a lifesaver and attempting to bring the new pub and restaurant on board--great concept and this will be the place to come in... More

This B&B is in transition. The breakfasts were wonderful and would give it a 5 star rating. They are remodeling and will have this historic inn back to its original glory when they are done. The room I stayed in has not been redone and is sorely in need of it. The staff are friendly and helpful. I definitely will... More

OMG! Worst scariest place I have ever seen. We immediately asked for our money back. The Inn itself is old and smelly but kind of cool, I' m sure the rooms in there are probably nice however when you book online they give you one of the 'modern' rooms in the back addition......NO. Stay away, I'd rather stay at the... More

Hartness House is a wonderful experience! The inn itself is chocked full of beautiful art and history of the original owners who had a taste for exquisite detail. I loved looking a t all the period pieces and discussing them with my nine year old daughter. We both learned a lot not only about the house but also about the... More

This was our second time staying at the Hartness and can't wait to go back again. They are in the process of refurbishing the restaurant and tavern and should be finished soon. Breakfast is included and right now is being served in the ballroom. The use of local ingredients made the breakfast exceptional. We stayed in the James Hartness suite... More

I loved staying here, regardless of the faded carpets and shabbiness. The mansion is very elegant but needs to be refurbished. The bed was very comfortable with a new mattress. We stayed in the old mansion as they are in the process of upgrading the newer wings. They are also upgrading the kitchen and Tavern restaurant and will eventually upgrade... More

I travel a lot and usually stay in "chain" hotels, but the Hartness House was ranked high in Trip Advisor and was close to my business contact so I reserved a room for three nights. The house was nicely decorated and was at one time the house of the Governor of Vermont with much history. I was assigned a room... More
