We arrived on a misty, overcast day but were warmly welcomed by caretakers, Nancy & Ralph and a crackling fire in the hearth! We had intended to stay in one of the upper rooms but were pleased to hear the large bedroom downstairs was available so we took that and couldn't have been happier. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, and the bed was bliss!
My husband enjoyed talking about the property with Ralph and Nancy was so helpful with tidbits about the college and where to eat. Breakfast was tasty, filling and leisurely and we were sorry to only be staying one night! We plan to return for a longer visit to this lovely town and our exceptional hosts!

Room Tip: Sarah's Room on the first floor is light-filled, spacious and very comfortable. I loved not lugg...

We had such a nice visit at Applewood. We chose Applewood because of the location and reviews. We had decided to spend the day visiting farms as part of the Vermont Cheese Trail. We were looking for a unique way to view Vermont and get away from Boston for the weekend. As soon as we arrived Nancy had the door open for us. She was warm and approachable. She showed us around the house and it was beautiful. The library was full of cozy chairs and lots of books. The living room had a fireplace and tv. Nancy showed us where to find glasses, bottle openers, a refrigerator for our personal use. There was a ton of privacy, more than I expected. Our room was perfect with a nice view of the property. The bed was huge and unbelievably comfortable. Nancy suggested so options for our dinner and even told us about a place that we did not see listed in our internet choices. It turned out to be perfect for what we needed as a bunch of road tired travelers. A bistro with nice food and good wine literally within walking distance of their B&B. In the morning we went down for breakfast and were greeted with a great cup of coffee, fruit, muffins, juice, and Samson their sweetheart of a Golden Retriever who laid by my feet throughout breakfast. Ralph made us a great French Toast with bacon. We had great conversation with Nancy and the other two couples staying the night laughing and sharing stories. I really felt at home in Ralph and Nancy's B&B and will definitely be back.

My husband and I were visiting family just across the border in New York and decided to stay here instead of one of the chain hotels in the area. We couldn't have been happier with that decision. Nancy and Ralph were incredibly hosts and made us feel welcome and like part of the family. The inn itself is beautifully restored and in an excellent location--off a main road, nestled right in the wood but still easy to get to and close enough to everything you would need. The breakfast was phenomenal every day and they really outdid themselves. I would most definitely recommend this place to any of my family who visits the area frequently.

Room Tip: We stayed in Nathan's Room which had a large sized bathroom and an extremely comfortable bed. Th...

My husband and I stayed overnight at Applewood Manor during a trip to Rutland to view the folliage. The main house was built in the 1700's, with the owners living in a more recent addition. We stayed in Delia's room on the 2nd floor. There are 5 bedrooms; 1 on the first floor and the other 4 on the second floor. We liked our room and it had windows on two sides. It overlooked the backyard pool in the distance, and was right above the two tiered back deck. It was a little too cold to enjoy the decks and wicker furniture on the porch, but on a warmer day, I'm sure the small bistro tables scattered about on the deck, and swing are put to good use. The house is beautifully decorated and had a library and living room in which to enjoy cocktails, converse, or read. The house is very conveniently located on a quiet road .03 miles to the Castletown village store, which has a good selection of under $12 wines, and also to the almost adjacent Blue Cat Restaurant and a diner on Main Street. We bought a bottle of wine, returned, and with the house-supplied glasses, enjoyed the wine in the library. Delia's room was 2 twins made up for us as a king bed, and it and the bath was furnished with the normal supplies and down comforter. It was a nice room. Breakfast was in a well appointed dining room that was originally the large colonial kitchen. The morning we were there, Ralph made french toast with strawberries. There was also a large seasonal fruit cup, coffee, tea, and pastries. Our fellow guests included a couple traveling New England from England, who also spent part of each year in France. It was interesting hearing impressions of their travels. Guests were both 20 somethings and older folks like us. Nancy was an attentive hostess, and herself originally is from Scotland. She made us feel at home. There is a small guest refrigerator for storing VT cheeses and sausages, and other items that guests have purchased along the way. We plan to return again next year, if possible.

If your vision of a perfect B&B includes canopy beds, sumptious gourmet breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool or around the antique table with a fire burning in the 100 year old fireplace and wonderful, gracious &helpful innkeepers Nancy and Ralph seeing to your every need, than this is the place for you! A nicer place you can not find in central Vermont. Minutes to beautiful Lake Bomosseen or skiing at Killington are close by and easily accessible by major highways. This is truly a 4 season gem located in the quintessential town of Castleton Vermont. Charm, Charm, Charm!! Don't miss it if in the area.

Room Tip: For anyone unable to climb stairs, there is a first floor bedroom that is lovely!
