“Strong House Inn”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

If you are planning to get away from reality and not be bothered by anyone, Strong House Inn is the place to be.

PROS
-The innkeepers were very friendly, the room was immaculate, very clean, spacious and cozy.
-Black Sheep Bistro was an amazing restaurant, the voucher helps but only covers for one person.
- South Burlington was only about a half hour away and it had wineries, breweries and little shops!
-The innkeepers were very welcoming and accessible.

CONS
-You could not have whatever you wanted for breakfast. It was whatever they decided to make for that day. This was my first time at a B&B and I imagined the breakfast would be a huge breakfast of whatever you wanted to eat, especailly if I am paying $275. And the livingsocial described it as being a large breakfast and it was not.
-The chocolates were literally 3 pieces of Lindor chocolates in a bowl, and the wine was a decent size.
-Breakfast is between 7:30am-9am. Which is invonvenient if you are on vacation and want to sleep in. On top of that, you have to walk to the actual inn from the annex to have breakfast.
-It is not worth paying $210 a night.-The 9% and 18% gratuity tax is overboard as well.

Overall, it was a nice getaway but I would not pay this much to stay at a B&B again.

In June 2013 we had a wonderful visit to the Strong House Inn staying in the Plantation Room and certainly have been remiss in not adding our positive comments to TripAdvisor My husband celebrated his birthday on June 12 and I must have mentioned this when booking as when we went to the "Black Sheep Bistro" along with an excellent meal (can't wait to go back) he received an amazing dessert that even had his name inscribed with "Happy Birthday" (in chocolate) on the plate rim. Now, the room at the Inn was absolutely beautiful and we loved sitting outside on the balcony to enjoy the sunset. The innkeepers are so very engaging and make sure that all your needs are looked after. Thank you for the special touches. Till the next time!!!!

Room Tip: Loved the Plantation Room in the "Rabbit Ridge". Elegant and very private.

We had a very lovely and relaxing stay at the Strong House. I am normally not a fan of B&B's, but my husband planned this trip to see the foliage and Vermont countryside. We could not have been more pleased with our room which had an incredible four poster bed, a fireplace, and great balcony! It was very quiet and also exceptionally clean.
The Innkeepers are wonderful to meet and chat with, and very accommodating. We bought a few items in their small gift shop area as well. The food was very, very good and we appreciated all the special touches found in each room that make it feel so special and homey.
We hope to get back to the Strong House Inn soon!

I stayed at The Strong House Inn during a Back Roads trip and it was delightful! Our breakfast was delicious, and the innkeepers Were very friendly and helpful- providing a new light bulb for my bedside lamp quick as a bunny! Autumn is a nice time to come - views are spectacular!

Spent one night at this beautiful B&B, wonderful place, owners so friendly, room very clean and everything about the establishment was so,appealing. Scheduling prevented us from staying longer, but will be back. Area is so nice to visit. Breakfast was excellent and the dining room was so lovely.
