Just got back from another stay at Inn at S.B. This property is so beautiful that it stays in my memory all year. I truly love the landscape, the winding drive (over a mile) from the entrance gate to the inn building on the lake, the huge strange barn out of a Nordic fairy tale, the herds of cows, the rolling landscape, the horse-drawn wagons, the cheese-making and the night sky! It's hard to add to what others have said, but I really do not regret any stay here. As others have said, no TV, no air conditioning, and the furniture is old (almost all original to the house). The main public rooms downstairs are very special, especially on a cool fall night when the fireplaces are lit. Flower bouquets are everywhere. Charming small bar just outside the dining room. Drinks on the lawn overlooking Lake Champlain are a must. The gardens keep improving from several years ago, and I know they continue this good work. Cheese and apples come in every room. Are there any flies in the ointment? Little ones, but not worth staying away. We had the Webb room (one of the big ones) and the bed is a little annoying (not comfortable to read in bed, not given enough pillows, mattress does not fill up space within the bedstead so you cannot avoid the chilly side pieces). Restaurant not as good as it used to be, but breakfast is great, the wine list is great, coffee is strong. (Please keep offering coffee at breakfast - we should not have to look for you.) Thanks too for attentive service when guests first arrive. I love the library too and the South Porch. Best of all is the sense of space -- and the quiet. And that incredible sky. And the mountain views.
