“Perfect Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Great weekend getaway place for family and friends. Stayed at Millstone Hill Lodge the first of October, the accommodations were great and were very spacious. The rooms were clean and bedding was fabulous. The trails around the Lodge were great, even in the rain. The lodge owner bent over backwards to accommodate our needs.

Beautiful rustic lodge. Our room had a large window with a view of the valley. Woke to fall colors every morning. Very comfortable. The hiking trails were great.

Just back from 3 nights at the Lodge and 3 days of mountain biking on Millstone trails. The lodge is the perfect place to stay, right on the trails, comfortable rooms, a large open common area, indoor bike storage, and spectacular views. Ask to stay in the room with the best view. Pierre is a gracious host. Being from Barre and being a major force behind the conservation of Millstone trails, Pierre will fill you in on everything from the history of the granite industry to the locals' views on conserving Millstone trails to the best places to eat dinner in the area. We had a wonderful vacation, riding the trails, marveling at the quarries and enormous piles of granite blocks, and relaxing on the Lodge's adirondacks chairs to admire the expansive view. We will definitely be back!

DID NOT stay at the Barn and Lodge which is what is highlighted on the website but stayed at their other properties- the Loft and the Farmhouse. Thinking that it was of equal standard as the Barn and Lodge, we reserved both the Loft and Farmhouse for several nights stay.
1. THE LOFT- is billed as 'luxury accommodations' at $250.00 which is ridiculous!! Architecturally, the loft is nice with exposed beams, wide planked wooden floors, a 'hidden' nook room. With that said, the screens on the windows had numerous holes in them; there were food crumbs within the couch cushions and the carpets as well as floors were quite dirty. There is a small balcony off the sitting room which was unsteady and falling apart. We asked for linens for one of the sleeper couches and the owner just threw them over the banister from his apartment below, leaving them on the floor! We cooked in the tiny kitchen and had to wash the dishes we planned to eat from because bits of food were stuck on them. The dishwasher was none operational; the coffee maker was filthy and toaster oven unusable because it had baked-on food. Everything was dusty and dirty. The furniture was old, worn and dirty...probably purchased from the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
2. THE FARMHOUSE - This place was atrocious!!! This "house" is actually a Cape in a normal neighborhood just down the street from the Barn and Lodge. Reservations were made months in advance and the owner assured us that renovations would be completed in time for our stay. There was a chair in our room that still had the tag on from whatever garage sale the owner purchased it from. The refrigerator was filled with old food that the owner had to remove for us. The two bedrooms upstairs were quaint but again - filled with gaudy furniture that one is afraid to touch. The carpet in one of the bedrooms smelled of cat urine.

The quirky owner would spend most of the day milling around the property which was eerie and strange. Whatever could go wrong went wrong with our time here....STAY AWAY! Do yourself a favor and find a small motel in Barre, VT. You would be better off!

Sadly, there is so much potential with the loft, but the owner is clearly clueless about what defines luxury. The architecture is beautiful, but he needs to hire someone to come in and totally clean the place - very dusty and musty. The living room had a fabulous view of the mountains, but the sofa that opened to a bed was full of crumbs - our group had to ask for a vacuum cleaner to clean it, along with vacuuming the rug that was full of cat hair. The rug also had burns in it. None of us would step out on the balcony off the living room because it didn't look safe and the screened door out to this balcony was shredded by the cat. The kitchen was disgusting. Food in the frig (and I'm not talking about a bottle or two of condiments - someone's left overs, half used stick of butter with crumbs in it), the freezer had one ice-crusted ice cube tray in it. The toaster oven was so gross I can't imagine anyone using it. Throw it out and get a new one for $15 at Walmart!! Before we used any dish, utensil or pot, we washed them - nothing seemed clean. The apartment sized stove does not have four working burners. We loaded the dishwasher after dinner, but when opening the soap tray to put the soap it, there was hard, caked soap already in it - should have been our clue that the dishwasher just doesn't work. The garden room could have been lovely, except one corner of the sofa bed was horribly shredded by the cat. The screen door to the outdoor patio didn't slide open, but that wasn't necessary because the screen was ripped halfway up the door - you pretty much could have just pushed it aside and walked through it. The interior door was so warped that you couldn't close it all the way. The paint on the railings on the patio was peeling and the railings themselves were very low - certainly not approved safety height. If you are expecting high thread count sheets that a $250 a night luxury suite should have, think again. Think Walmart. The bathroom was clean but the old metal tub has rust in the bottom - but I guess it didn't matter because the water to it was turned off. The shower was ok, but the owner left his personal 1/4 filled bottles of shampoo & conditioner in there. There wasn't any bar soap for the shower, so bring your own. To top it all off, here you are in an old wooden barn structure, loaded with stuff (and I mean loaded...), there isn't one smoke detector in the whole loft. I can't imagine that this passes safety codes. I certainly would not make a fire in the wood stove. The owner needs to make a decision here - either he's going to pass this off as a cool place for bikers or cross country skiers to hang out, or he's going to up his game and really make it a luxury "top of the line" (his description) space. As it stands, anyone who is expecting a luxury suite is going to be very disappointed. Some of our group also rented another one of his facilities (that's a whole other story!!!). There were a total of 13 of us, paying this guy LOTS of money for a host of problems and he still wanted to charge us the fee to use his trails. It was like sucking every last cent out of us that he could and he was totally unapologetic for all the problems we encountered. If anything, he acted insulted. The owner clearly does not know how to treat guests well in his facilities. He was intrusive on our space and unapologetic when we confronted him about problems. When I pointed out the issues with the loft (ripped screens, dishwasher, etc.), he just commented "yeah, I know." Well, geez, FIX these things!! And hire someone to come in to give the loft a good cleaning. The owner says on his website "The Loft at The Barn is an ideal choice for the discriminating guest." Hmmm, right...

Millstone Hill far exceeded our expectations! Going into the weekend, we expected a fairly comfortable, simple room near cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. What we got was much more than that! The Lodge's post-and-beam architecture, abundance of eclectic, inviting antiques and multiple cozy sitting areas with fabulous mountain views made for the perfect backdrop for hours of undisturbed reading and relaxation. And the perfectly-groomed trails directly adjacent to the property, combined with the surprisingly affordable rentals at the Tourist Center, made it so convenient to enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding the wonderfully preserved granite quarries in the area. The owner did a great job of making us feel right at home. He showed up each morning to cook us a gourmet breakfast, and was always eager to provide tips on the area and great conversation. At the same time, he gave us enough space most of the time that we truly felt at home in Lodge. The quaint towns in the area provided abundant dining selection. All in all, it was a fabulous weekend that we will be sure to repeat in the near future. Millstone Hill is a real hidden gem!
