This place is a GEM. I stayed in the Jennifer Crawford room, which was comfortable and quiet and featured a nice private bathroom. The shower (something I'm a little picky about!) was great. Plenty of hot water and plenty of water pressure too.

Cleanliness was top shelf.

It was a business trip, so I really needed wi-fi and that worked perfectly.

Did I mention the views? It was hard to get any work done with views like that. The entire scene - the renovated 1800s post & beam barn, the rolling hills and distant mountains looked like something out of a fairy tale.

The morning breakfast was good too. Hot coffee, freshly baked muffins, fruit, yogurt, bagels - if you leave hungry, it's your own fault.

The price was the cherry on top. It cost less to stay in this incredible B&B than in the local chain motels where you get 4 walls and pastel paint.

I've stayed in B&Bs from Florida to Alaska. This is one of the very best and gets my highest possible recommendation!

My wife and I are always looking for places that will make truly escaping from the noise of the city life a solid reality. The lodge is one of those places, and more. Felt like going back in time yet close enough to experience what Montpelier, Stowe and Burlington have to offer.
The owner, Pierre, is one more reason for us to go back. A wonderful gentleman. 5 stars in every way.

We stayed just one night in this charming lodge. Our room (the Jennifer Crawford) was very comfortable and had a fantastic view over the fields and valley. It was a convenient location, but very peaceful. It was a quiet time of year, so we had almost the whole, homey place to ourselves. A taste of real Vermont.

I paid $185.00 dollars to stay in a room with dirty linen. Our friends were expecting a king size bed with Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi bathroom was shared. Dreary place not cute at all just old and musty smelling. No TV. Bad lighting. They expected the other couple to stay in a room in their house with four cats and a dog!! Red flags!! We left losing money! Creepy as he'll. Really don't appreciate the reviews that clearly lied.

We found this place by accident looking to stay in Montpelier area for one night on our way to Massachusetts. Well, this was magical! The location, view, building and the excellent attention provided my the owner Pierre were excellent. We could have stayed longer. Highly recommended.

The perfect spot for our large family to gather for the weekend of our mother's memorial service. The lodge is amazing- so warm and welcoming with its rustic, Adirondack decor... And the owner's eye for detail is evident throughout the entire space.

We had four rooms within the Lodge and also used the Loft at their adjacent property. So cozy and comfortable, and with the spacious living and dining space as well as a full kitchen, outdoor grill - it is so well equipped to ensure you lack nothing. Even with 20 of us it never felt crowded or cramped.

Especially great was the first floor function room with full catering kitchen! Perfect space for us to host a post-service reception.

And no review of Millstone would be complete without mention of the property itself... In a word, breathtaking. The Lodge sits on an open span of field that overlooks a gorgeous vista of the mountains. Simply amazing.

Pierre and his sister Frankie are fantastic! So accommodating, welcoming and gracious. We will be back to this gem of a retreat!

Thanks for your great review. It is so important to us to share with our guests the focus of their event. Having lost our parents in the past few years, we both appreciate how important the final celebration and good bye is to our elders and are honored that you chose the Lodge at Millstone Hill to say your final words. Hope to see you again in the future under more positive circumstances. Frankie

Sadly, there is so much potential with the loft, but the owner is clearly clueless about what defines luxury. The architecture is beautiful, but he needs to hire someone to come in and totally clean the place - very dusty and musty. The living room had a fabulous view of the mountains, but the sofa that opened to a bed was full of crumbs - our group had to ask for a vacuum cleaner to clean it, along with vacuuming the rug that was full of cat hair. The rug also had burns in it. None of us would step out on the balcony off the living room because it didn't look safe and the screened door out to this balcony was shredded by the cat. The kitchen was disgusting. Food in the frig (and I'm not talking about a bottle or two of condiments - someone's left overs, half used stick of butter with crumbs in it), the freezer had one ice-crusted ice cube tray in it. The toaster oven was so gross I can't imagine anyone using it. Throw it out and get a new one for $15 at Walmart!! Before we used any dish, utensil or pot, we washed them - nothing seemed clean. The apartment sized stove does not have four working burners. We loaded the dishwasher after dinner, but when opening the soap tray to put the soap it, there was hard, caked soap already in it - should have been our clue that the dishwasher just doesn't work. The garden room could have been lovely, except one corner of the sofa bed was horribly shredded by the cat. The screen door to the outdoor patio didn't slide open, but that wasn't necessary because the screen was ripped halfway up the door - you pretty much could have just pushed it aside and walked through it. The interior door was so warped that you couldn't close it all the way. The paint on the railings on the patio was peeling and the railings themselves were very low - certainly not approved safety height. If you are expecting high thread count sheets that a $250 a night luxury suite should have, think again. Think Walmart. The bathroom was clean but the old metal tub has rust in the bottom - but I guess it didn't matter because the water to it was turned off. The shower was ok, but the owner left his personal 1/4 filled bottles of shampoo & conditioner in there. There wasn't any bar soap for the shower, so bring your own. To top it all off, here you are in an old wooden barn structure, loaded with stuff (and I mean loaded...), there isn't one smoke detector in the whole loft. I can't imagine that this passes safety codes. I certainly would not make a fire in the wood stove. The owner needs to make a decision here - either he's going to pass this off as a cool place for bikers or cross country skiers to hang out, or he's going to up his game and really make it a luxury "top of the line" (his description) space. As it stands, anyone who is expecting a luxury suite is going to be very disappointed. Some of our group also rented another one of his facilities (that's a whole other story!!!). There were a total of 13 of us, paying this guy LOTS of money for a host of problems and he still wanted to charge us the fee to use his trails. It was like sucking every last cent out of us that he could and he was totally unapologetic for all the problems we encountered. If anything, he acted insulted. The owner clearly does not know how to treat guests well in his facilities. He was intrusive on our space and unapologetic when we confronted him about problems. When I pointed out the issues with the loft (ripped screens, dishwasher, etc.), he just commented "yeah, I know." Well, geez, FIX these things!! And hire someone to come in to give the loft a good cleaning. The owner says on his website "The Loft at The Barn is an ideal choice for the discriminating guest." Hmmm, right...

Talk about a wow factor, as soon as you walk in you are overtaken by the quality of the building and the wonderful vaulted ceiling and picture window.
The owners, Pierre and Francis are both very friendly and helpful and Pierre cooks a mean breakfast.
We were lucky enough to be in the Jennifer Crawford room, on the ground floor, which is quite lovely with wonderful views.
We were able to use the kitchen facilities, fridge, tea, coffee etc which was very useful.
The building is beautifully decorated and maintained.
The only negative we found was that the noise from the other guestroom shared bathroom extractor can was quite loud and intrusive.
The only other negative, which I am sure might upset certain guests, are the numerous stuffed animal heads etc, hunting trophies which probably fit in well with the ambience of the property but will not be too everybody's taste.
If this is not a problem to you then I could not recommend this place highly enough.

My family had a reception here after my Mom's memorial service. We had family members staying in all of the rooms. The setting, furnishings, service, and overall experience were memorable. But most importantly was the attention to detail and extra effort put forth by Pierre. He made us all feel like this was the most important function he had ever done. There were so many extra touches that made this event feel special. We would all come back in a heart beat, perhaps a family gathering under better circumstances. Thanks for all you did for us, Pierre!!
