The Kimball House
Ranked #1 of 1 Hardwick B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 26, 2014

The Kimball House is a great B&B in Hardwick. The house is a beautifully restored Victorian. Susan is a gracious host. The beds are very comfortable and Susan serves a very nice breakfast. We've stayed here several times now and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: There are two rooms with Queen beds. Both are lovely. The 3rd room has two single beds. They all...

I have just returned from a 6 day stay at Kimball House. It is a wonderful B&B and I highly recommend it. The owners, Sue and Tod are very gracious hosts and the breakfasts were delicious and filling. The B&B was very clean, rooms were very comfortable and there was a terrific charm to the whole experience. We very much enjoyed sitting out on there deck watching the sun rise and sun sets. Doesn't get much better than this!

Room Tip: There were 3 of us and we filled the B&B. All rooms were great.

Sue could not have been more welcoming or a better chef! She has every detail covered - from bathrobes to in-room chocolates to self-serve coffee & fruit - and she has transformed this historic 120-yr-old Queen Anne style home into a great B&B. Sue asked in advance if we had any food preferences, and she was more than obliging in recalling and honoring ours during our stay. Her pancakes were out of this world! Our room was spacious and included a lovely electric fireplace, sweeping views of the valley and town below, and a very clean and comfortable queen bed. I highly recommend this spot to all and will remember this for my next trip to Stowe.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Kimball House 3 times now and have never had anything but a wonderful experience. The house sits on top of a hill, which means wonderful views over Hardwick from the porch, the living area and from 2 of the 3 bedrooms. Sue's hospitality makes you feel right at home, and her carefully prepared breakfasts are not to be missed. Really what sets this place apart, however, is the incredible decor. From Victorian-era wallpaper, to gorgeous period furniture, to the most spectacular bathtub I have ever seen, the Kimball House feels like a true escape from everyday life.

Kimball House is a wonderfully B&B with authentic period decor and an overwhleming abundance of details, warmth and a generous home-cooked breakfast. Sue is very welcoming and fun and the house is terrifically comfortable and the area perfect: perched on a hill it is still just walking distance from the village with good restaurants.

Room Tip: For friend travellers or those with children, there is a room with two single beds.

I've been to a lot of B&B's in my time and this one was the best! Sue takes such pride in running the house. When you're there you can totally tell that the decor has been meticulously tweaked for years so everything has now found a perfect spot. The property itself is wonderfully maintained and you are on the top of this hill that seems to just look out over all of VT. The upstairs bathroom...oh my goodness, just wonderful. Every detail is remembered and the breakfast... ahh the breakfast!!

Kimball House is quirky, warmly welcoming and has the best breakfasts in New England. Sue really cares about her visitors: we had fresh fruit salads, the best poached eggs I've ever tasted, home made preserves and proper tea in a proper tea-pot. Sue's food tastes like real food. You'll also get fantastic views through lace curtained windows and masses of local information to help you make the most of your stay. And if the weather in spring turns to snow-as it did for us you can have hot cider and an electric blanket! A real Victorian bathroom comes with a range of organic bath essences and if you prefer modern there's a shower room as well.
