This is a gorgeous property consisting of three different buildings, two of which are adjacent and the other is down at the end of the block, a bit of a walk. If you stay here, get a room in the main house, which is where dining room is located. Food is fabulous, both breakfast and dinner, (pumpkin french toast for breakfast was the best ever) and service in restaurant is good.
However, front desk staff were not readily helpful and not all were familiar with the locale and thus could not recommend hiking nor give directions. However, owner, Michelle, knows what to do and where to go, and if she is not too busy, is a good resource. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable, but depending upon the room, bathroom can be tiny. Be sure to take a walk on the Trail Around Middlebury.
