We went to Vermont on a whim, and were referred to The Landgrove Inn by a colleague at work who has been staying there since he was a kid, over 40 years. He takes his family there 3 to 4 times every winter and suggested we check it out. From the moment we entered and were greeted by a lovely Swedish woman with a welcoming smile, the Inn was a very warm, friendly place. Everyone from the woman at the front desk to the waitresses at breakfast and dinner to the owners themselves who are always around, everyone was so friendly and seemed to enjoy just being there. I was amazed how they knew everyone's name from the kids to the adults. I thought it was because they all seemed to stay there frequently until I was greeted by name at breakfast. We stayed in room #19 which was very comfortable, clean, nicely appointed and warm. It was all we needed for our weekend stay. Most of the activity seems to take place in the common rooms where all the guests mingle day and night, and outdoors. The bar/lounge was a great place to meet people, sit by the fire and read or watch sports on the big-screen TV. Although many of the other guests seemed to know one another, we didn't feel out of place as everyone was extremely friendly.
The food was in a word, outstanding. Breakfast was hardy, my poached eggs were perfect, and dinner was superb. The prices seemed very reasonable and the dining room is nicely decorated. They seated us away from the families, which was appreciated, but the owner and waitresses were keeping constant vigil so the kids who were also in the dining room didn't disturb anyone else.
All in all, we enjoyed the weekend immensely. We felt like we had spent a weekend in someone's warm and friendly company and plan on a return this summer for some fly fishing in the Inn's trout pond.
