We were hit with a blizzard in town last week and we lost power. We reserved a room at Crabtree's Kittle House which is located in our town. Frankly we just needed heat and hot water as we were in the midst of an October blizzard (you figure!) We were incredibly pleased with our choice...the storm seemed far away. My wife and I always choose small hotels whether in Paris or Pittsburgh. The Kittle House is private, wooded and grand on a human scale.
Our room was immaculate and nicely furnished. It was a decent size but most of all it was charming in a very real kind of way...no mass produced prints on the walls like the big box places...no banal signs to save the earth by not washing towels. In short the feeling is more like being a guest in Thomas Jefferson's home as the building and the feeling is of that era. The bed was comfortable and nicely appointed with a soft quilt and feather pillows. The bathroom is modern, clean and sports a great shower
We missed breakfast so no report on that. We did enjoy dinner both nights of our stay as the food is fresh, local and perfectly displayed and prepared. The service is exceptional in both the restaurant and the B&B with the wait staff and managers taking the time to ensure we were fully satisfied!
The wine list is not to be believed. They have a huge wine book with prices that are very fair but exceptionally reasonable on fine wines. I am told the wine cellar is a must see as it is an authentic vestige of the era holding thousands of hand picked wines dating back to the early 20th century.
In short this is a very personal establishment. It is family run and well cared for. They have what seems to be a vibrant business and the reason is all about attention to detail in every way.
We love Vermont, but this is about 5 hours closer to where we live with the same net effect of being away from it all in the forest.
