Three Mountain Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 Jamaica B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 22, 2004

My husband & I travelled for 13 days through Southern & Central VT staying @ 3 different inns (Woodstock Inn & Resort, Macartney House being the other 2). 3MI was our 1st stay. It was good. Not great. We were in the Main House in the "Brookline" Room. Quaint. Nicely decorated. Not an old, boring drab, green or maroon carpet, lace curtain or brass bed in sight. However, we thought the room was a bit pricey (goes up in Fall Foliage) considering our room was on the main road & driveway so there was lots of traffic & also, they're was a bike tour staying there & every morning (@ 7am) they camped out under our window handing out waters & doing something for their tour & we could hear their entire conversations. They were LOUD. We thought that could have been planned better by the inn keepers. On the last night, my husband strategically parked our car under our window so the bike tour had to set up more towards the back of the driveway. It worked but we shouldn't have had to worry about that. Also the bed was between 2 windows & the shades weren't blackout. Jen & Ed (the owners) were very nice & Ed made a delicious breakfast every morning. When we got to the inn though, no one offered to help w/our bags even as we struggled up the narrow stairs & Jen watched & chuckled @ the size of our suitcase. Granted, it wasn't far but it would have been a nice & thoughtful touch. The 1st night there was a frost & it was freezing in our room. The A/C was still in the window & there was a huge draft. We weren't the only ones that were cold (as we found out). We told Ed & he tried to fix it but it didn't work. He DID take the A/C out the next day though but again, could have been thought of before. There was also no turn down service @ night. It's just a small crtique for what might help in the future (they haven't had the inn long). The fireplace wasn't prepared to be used either (as it was in the other places we stayed b'c it's a feature). We got the impression that dinner was the real serious business there & got the most attention & it WAS very, very good. Out of all the places we dined, the food was great but the SERVICE was the best & very serious as well. Jamaica itself is small & off the beaten path. A real VT village. Ecelectic, somewhat run-down in places but with soul & charm. Jamaica State Park was great & we took a 7 mile walk (round trip) to the waterfall. We also ate at Asta's (practically next to the inn) which was good food but it's the atmosphere which was an experience we won't ruin for you. We also went to Grafton which was beautiful & worth going. We liked it much better than Woodstock as far as soulful charm. Anyway - we thought that 3MI it could be a bit better w/a little more attention to detail. I'm sure once they get into the swing of things, Jen & Ed will have everything down pat. Maybe we expected a little bit more from how things appeared on the website & maybe we were spoiled from the last inn we stayed in on our trip in VT (which had amazing attention to detail). Out of the 3 inns which we stayed, this one was our #2. Good but a little bit...I don't know... too blase? So we left there a little apathetic about our stay although we enjoyed our time in the area very much.

This is gem.
Our first experience of an Inn in the States and we were very happy.
We had a warm welcome and were offered refreshments as soon as we arrived. Our room, "Dorset" was beautiful, very light and the expensively dressed bed was the most comfortable we 've ever tried.
Jennifer asked every morning if we were all set for the day and if we weren't she provided us with an unusually high degree of practical assistance. Breakfasts were rich and enjoyable and what's more these Innkeepers were happy to cope with my difficult dietary requirements.
We appreciated the touches like early morning coffee and the afternoon refreshments by the real log fire.
The dining/ breakfast rooms are attractive and all the Staff are well trained and helpful.
Dinner from a short but varied menu was excellent with the emphasis placed on local fresh produce.
Most of all we loved the relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
I do hope you will be able to vist soon but book well in advance as the secret is out..! The Inn sits on Route 30 so is convenient for touring , we particularly recommend a trip on the Green Mountain Flyer, but you may want to ask for a quiet room.
We were thrilled to be given a leaving present by this very caring young couple..! Thank you Jennifer and Ed we wish you every success.

This place is fantastic. Ed and Jennifer and great inn keepers and the property is imaculant and very relaxing. It was by far the most accomodating place I have ever been to. The breakfast is a four course event and they leave you full until dinner. They have the most beautiful state park right behind their property with great trails and views. This was our first time in Vermont and in a Bed and Breakfast and it met and exceded every expectation.

Thank Guys, we had a great time!

We have stayed in many Inns in New England and Europe and this is one of the best. Every detail was carefully attended to, the atmosphere was relaxing, the staff was extremely helpful and the food was outstanding. Enjoying wine and cheese by the fireplace while making new friends makes for a memorable experience. We stopped for one night, stayed for two and didn't want to leave. Two thumbs up!
