We stopped by the Mansion Inn on our way to Vermont for a brief overnight stay. This was our FIRST B&B stay ever so we had no expectations. We arrived around 4:00 in the afternoon and were met at the door by Bruce, the owner. He showed us around the house and to our room. Our accommodations were exceptional. We stayed in the Ivy Room which was a large room on the back of the house. It had a fireplace, a sitting area, and a large closet and bathroom. The house has a lot of history and character and comes with the squeaks and irritations that come along with any old house. The house was peaceful and quiet throughout the night. The next morning we were met by Bruce again who was preparing breakfast. He served fruit with yogurt and then a ham and cheese omelet with potatoes. What's more, he sat down at the table with us and gave us the history of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing about the many years of history and the company he provided at our breakfast.
While this probably wouldn't fit everyone's style, this impressed us for our first B&B visit and was the perfect start to our wedding weekend.
