“A nice stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Vermont Inn is in an almost perfect location for a look at the Green Mountains. It is halfway between Killington and Rutland, right on Rt. 4. The summer views are spectacular. The Inn itself is in transition, with new out-of-town owners and a nice young couple, Emily and Michael, on property. We were upgraded to a lovely room, which had a bathroom almost as big as the bedroom. It was clean and very pleasant, if a little odd with a rather steep step between the kingsize bed and the bathroom. A little scary to negotiate the first night. But the bed was great. The cooked-to-order breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choices, although definitely not upscale. We stayed for three nights and the room was only made up the first day of our stay. We ate breakfast for the first two mornings at the same table. My wife noticed a spot on the tablecloth the first morning and the same tablecloth was there the second day. The negatives were minor, though. It was a pleasant stay with friendly, helpful people who are obviously trying to make the place even better. If you do stay here, we highly recommend two restaurants in Rutland - Table 24 and Roots. Both have varied menus with locally grown and raised produce and meats and both are very, very good.

The Vermont Inn is set in a beautiful location with great views of the mountains and plenty of parking. It is not close to the ski lifts but in some ways that was refreshing. The owners were attentive, kind, helpful and enthusiastic. I loved the decor & the colors in the room but I could have done with out the three daddy long leg spiders above my shower. The Inn could use some freshening up but it does offer other amenities like a hot tub, pool and exercise room. We were offered several choices for breakfast which was a nice change instead of the one choice for the day that most B & B’s offer. We enjoyed the homemade cookies (warm and buttery) offered every afternoon.

We chose this place because we wanted a true Vermont experience during our New England holiday. I am so glad I did as the moment we arrived Emily and Michael made us feel like we were in their own home. They upgraded our room which was a welcome surprise, very well appointed room which was so quiet, we found the bed very comfortable. Now the breakfast is something to write home about. The pancakes are so fluffy you have to try them, not to mention the French toast that changes every day. Emily and Michael really went the extra mile for us, lending maps, deck chairs and giving us great tips of places to visit in the local area. We would not have had such an enjoyable visit to Vermont without their advice and warm welcome. I would urge you to book here instead of that soul-less hotel and really immerse yourself in the experience. We will most definitely be back, although next time we will stay longer as there is so much to do up here in the mountains. Thanks for such a good holiday. :-)

My mom organized our reunion here after researching many other Vermont locations. After months of planning, she set my expectations of Mike and Emily pretty high. So I wasn't surprised on Friday morning when I got a call from Mike asking about my arrival time and if things were going as planned. That was the first of many times the owners went above and beyond for our family of 35, ranging in ages from toddler to 94.

We realized shortly after arrival that we didn't have a dinner plan for those guests staying Friday night. They offered up the dining room for an impromptu pizza dinner, opening up the bar and putting the beer tabs on our rooms. When it started to sprinkle on the picnic planned for outdoors the next day, again we were welcomed into the dining room. Both times we were able to save money by bringing in outside catering and use their facilities and bar at no attritional charge for as long as we'd like. Talk about gracious hosts!

The facility was perfect for larger gatherings, with smaller rooms for private conversations. There was a game room which kept the kids entertained for hours. The pool was modest, but perfect for our needs. The tennis courts had scooter tracks all over them by the time we left. We spent a good amount of time exploring the creek in back of the property, with pools for resting, rocks for climbing and muddy patches for foot print tracking. The place is the right balance of laid back and comfortable - just what we needed.

The rooms layouts were quite varied so each family found something that fit their specific needs. Our shower was hot and strong with plenty of towels, which is huge for me. The bed was comfortable with more pillows and blankets than we would ever need.

Breakfasts were fantastic, with a coffee bar, fruits and cereal available before the official breakfast hour began. The homemade hot chocolate chip cookies each afternoon were amazing. There was always a pitcher of ice water and water goblets which we needed on a hot July weekend.

If you are looking for a high end, modern hotel, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a quaint, relaxed New England inn with owners who would do anything to make your stay more comfortable, come check out the Vermont Inn.

Room Tip: The description of the rooms with photos is spot on for what you get when you arrive.

Just got back from The Vermont Inn----we could not have had a better time. Our group included elders (late 80's-early 90's), youngsters (17 months old) and everything in-between.......and Emily and Mike took care of our every need. When the area where we were to hold our picnic fell through, they stepped up and urged us to hold it at the Inn. It could not have worked out any better. Breakfast was outstanding, our rooms were lovely and comfortable (and quiet), beautiful flowers around the building, bar service on site (for those of us who imbibe!)-----Emily even took our family pictures and did not complain about all the cameras. Location was ideal---all around fabulous experience.

We stayed in this inn last january 2013. I recently joined trip advisor and I really liked this place so I am making a review. This place has a lot of character, my sister and her husband who were visiting from the Philippines really fell in love with this place. At that time the whole inn was covered in snow and in front there were icicles that formed on the roof coming down, it was picture perfect! I forgot the name of the caretaker at that time (I think it was mike, basing on other reviews), but he was very accommodating and welcoming and toured us around the house. Rooms are very charming. My sister and her husband's room even had a fireplace inside, it was very romantic. Breakfast is also good. Location is ok and there are a lot of ski resorts nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be back again soon!

The Vermont Inn satisfied all our family's needs for a reunion. We had searched long and hard for a place that had space for all 25 of us to sit together in one place. The Vermont Inn really fit the bill. We ate a sumptuous breakfast together each morning, went out on our separate adventures each afternoon and then brought in dinner to share in the dining room most evenings. The children had the run of the place, as well as an amply supplied game room. The adults had a well-stocked bar at their disposal and a couple of different sitting areas. The bedrooms were so comfortable and charming that we felt right at home soon after our arrival. The innkeepers, Mike and Emily, were willing to do anything to help us enjoy our stay. Last but not least, the breakfasts were wonderful and guaranteed to please even the fussiest of children!
