We came to ski. It was a snowy, slippery drive at dusk and we were tired. Pulling into the driveway I said "This looks like Bing Crosby's place in Holiday Inn!". The big barn, the beautifully lit farmhouse, the well-plowed parking lot. Seemed nice. As we dragged out of the car, I heard a voice over my shoulder, I turned, and there, backlit by the warm interior light was the silhouette of Farrell our innkeeper, gesturing to us from the doorway, imploring us to come in out of the cold! I have never had such a personal, heartfelt greeting on arrival except a a friends' house. So welcoming. So kind. We felt immediately relaxed and comfy. The positive impressions continued. These inn keepers run what I consider a state-of-the art operation. Communications are clear and quick, both before arrival (online and on phone) and in person (during our stay). Locking systems are easy and personalized, even if you come in late, as some in our party did, accessing their room and navigating the house was easy. And then there's the food! Marvelous dinners, with house-made ingredients - Sean's salad dressing (orange infused olive oil) and a yummy pepper sauce. Don't miss the Seanbalaya (the chef's version of Jambalaya). And, at breakfast, he has special sausage patties as well as tasty omelettes made to order. OK, there must be something amiss with this place, right? Well, there is. There is a dog. Bene is a 1 1/2 year old puppy, A pain, right? An indulgence of the inn keepers that we will just have to put up with, right? Well, yeah, that's what I thought when I first met this lumbering Black Lab / Hound Dog mix breed. He, of course, was far from a pain. He is a wonder! Well behaved, beautiful, friendly, and truthfully, well trained. He sits and waits when told to - even by a stranger. And, he curls up in his chair after greeting you. I couldn't believe it and fell in love with him. Great company for a walk in the fields and up the hill! Go and visit The 1824 Inn. Worth a trip in itself. We came to ski, and that too was great, but, The 1824 Inn was wonderful and comfortable in so many ways, I know I will be back in all seasons!

Our first visit - this place immaculate- clean, fresh, bright with a tasteful “country” decor ... hits all the right notes and none of them too hard. The owners, Sean and Farrell, are super friendly and custom cook you delicious breakfasts and are happy to accommodate special requests. They have modern communications and locking systems so it’s easy even if you come in late. Don’t expect spa showers and individual climate control but I can’t say enough good things about this place. And in this time of hyper awareness around disinfecting I’ll add that they actually sterilize the rooms using an ozone machine. We saw the machine on our way out and the owner told us how he learned about ozone sterilization when he was in the wine business. Very cool!

Oh my goodness what an amazing find! This little gem was worth every penny. The charming rooms were inviting and warm. The meals were absolutely delicious. The staff was on hand to help with every little request that my girlfriend and I came up with. We enjoyed sledding on their hill and taking in the sites around the grounds. I feel like everyone that travels into this area should stay a night or two, they won't regret it...

1824 House was such a magical place. My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights - coming in on Christmas day. After a very long day of traveling, we arrived at the Inn, which a note to text or call Kathleen (the Innkeeper) to check-in. She was prompt and arrived in minutes; mind you this is Christmas day! She was so kind, offered us a cup of warm butternut squash soup (so delicious!) She showed us around and to our room. We asked to upgrade our room to something with a tub if available; we were in luck, as we were the only couple staying there that night and were treated like royalty! We stayed in the Chittenden vs the Addison room; which was a bit larger. There was snow on the ground, and Kathleen has sleds you can borrow for their sledding hill. Warning - if you have kids, they won't want to leave, it's so much fun! There is a lovely fireplace in one of the many common areas, always pastries and hot dinks in the kitchen, and small places to get away. Breakfast is served 830-930 and it is to die for! I don't know if everyone in VT can cook like Kathleen, but everything there was so good! In a nutshell - 1824 House is like staying at an old friends house. With a wedding barn; fall foliage wedding? Yes please! This was the highlight of our trip, and I would love to go back!

Room Tip: The Washington Room was HUGE! The Addison was tiny. I would go for something in the middle.
