This time, we stayed in the Adirondac room. Worth the extra pennies. This B&B is a real neat place, gracious hosts, lovely rooms, great food, breath-taking view from the patio. We are sure you will enjoy your stay,

We stayed at the Strong House for several days in July of this year in the Empire Room. Although the grounds of the B&B were very nice, with a nice gazebo and lawns, we were very disappointed in a couple of things. Our room, the Empire, was in the front of the Inn, and although the Inn is technically on "Main Street", Main Street is really Route 22A. We didn't notice this as being a problem until we went to sleep . . . or try to sleep. Route 22A must be a bypass because the amount of tractor trailers is unbelievable. There were hundreds of them going by each night . . . all night. Even trying to eat outside at the restaurants in town was nasty - the traffic and trucks were non-stop.

The other problem was the bathroom and shower. Although the Inn advertises an "en suite" bathroom, the bathroom is about the size of a bathroom on an airplane. It is claustrophobic. The room did not have a bath, but only a shower - get this - located inside a closet. You needed to open a closet door, then the shower was inside the closet. This was not of course mentioned on the website.

Lastly, make sure you aren't picky - breakfast is no choice . . . just put in front of you.

The town of Vergennes is very nice, and the Innkeepers also nice at this B&B. Just wanted to give an honest review of what we experienced.

We 4 women, of a certain age, found the Strong House Inn to be charming and comfortable.
We were biking each day, to Middlebury, to Essex, and Basin Harbor, returning each evening
to the friendly hosts, Mary & Hugh, and wonderful puzzles.
the breakfasts were ample and tasty, and the bsr well stocked.
Essentially, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and the library and lounge were especially comfortable.

I stayed at the Strong House Inn on a recent business trip. The room in the Rabbit Ridge house was spacious and elegant, with all the charm of a New England B & B in a freshly rennovated setting. The Inn owners were gracious and accomodating. Breakfast each day was complimentary and delicious! When I initially sought to book a room for the trip, I was unaware that Strong House offers corporate rates- This is not indicated on the website, so speak directly with the Inn owners when booking the reservation.

I came here to work at a company near by and stayed at the B&B for 3 nights. The owners, Mary and her husband Hugh were very pleasant, helpful and they go out of their way to help you. They have corporate discount for corporate business travelers.

The Strong House Inn was a beautiful setting for a small autumn wedding. Our rooms in Rabbit Ridge were gorgeous, and the service was excellent. We loved the maple cookies and chatting with the innkeepers. Having spent the previous weekend at a boutique hotel in NYC, the Strong House Inn surpassed even an exclusive city hotel.
