My husband and I traveled to Vermont to celebrate both my birthday and our anniversary last week. One of our stops included a three-day stay (June 22, 23, and 24) at the Antique Mansion Bed and Breakfast, which ended up being a highlight of our trip to Rutland!
Upon arrival, Sallie Gill graciously offered us iced tea, tea, or coffee and led us to our room. We found her to be hospitable and accommodating. Ms. Gill gave us a tour of the home after we expressed delight in the architecture. On all three mornings, she prepared a hearty and delicious breakfast of our choosing, asking questions to meet our preferences and dietary needs. Ms. Gill also asked for our preference in music and turned her radio to classical music as we ate our breakfast. She thoughtfully added beverages to the common-area refrigerator after noticing that my husband and I were drinking bottled water and diet soda. In addition, when we returned to the mansion in the evening, we found homemade cookies waiting for us! Ms. Gill was indeed an attentive and thoughtful hostess who would easily converse with us yet respected our privacy.
The Antique Mansion was spacious, clean, warm, inviting, and reasonably priced. Our suite, which included a bedroom with private bath, an alcove (in which we set up our computer), and a sitting room, was spacious and comfortable. We strolled the beautiful grounds and even saw rabbits and a fox or two!
Overall, our experience at the Antique Mansion in Rutland, Vermont was excellent, and I, without hesitation, would encourage travelers to stay there!
Thank you for a wonderful and memorable visit!
