“Weekend Getaway!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My husband and I were looking for a nice weekend away for our anniversary. The Snow Goose Inn was just what we were looking for. It was quaint, charming, and in a fabulous location. There were a couple of great restaurants close by and Mount Snow was easy to get to for our hiking trip. Our room was spacious with a jacuzzi tub and fireplace along with an extremely comfortable bed. The owner is very friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay great. There was wine and cheese out on the deck in the evening and a fantastic breakfast in the morning! Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend the Snow Goose Inn!

We had the pleasure of staying at The Snow Goose Inn in July for one night. We wish it had been longer. The rooms are spacious, clean and decorated very nicely. in the morning, we went down to a lovely dining room and were greeted by Cindy, the owner, who whipped us up a wonderful breakfast complete with delicious blueberry muffins and maple infused bacon.
The previous night we had been out late with family from out of town. I called and Cindy was able to accommodate the two couples with rooms for the night and was VERY gracious about it.
Although we visited in summer, I imagine The Snow Goose Inn is truly delightful in the Autumn and Winter with it's lovely rooms, many with fireplaces. A definite thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The rooms are air conditioned, some have balconies and fireplaces. King and Queen beds

What a pleasant surprise we had on a spur of the moment trip. As our daughter was in a competition early the next morning, Cyndee (innkeeper) came in extra early and had our breakfast waiting for us. She even offered us "to go" coffees. The rooms are quaint and homey and we felt comfortable the minute we walked in. The rooms are nicely appointed and ours had a fireplace. Would definitely recommend the Snow Goose!

We just spent the weekend at the Snow Goose Inn. Our room was very relaxing and comfortable. The setting is very tranquil and the deck out back is a great place to kick back and be with friends or family. The owners, Cindy and Ron, are great hosts and made us feel at home. The breakfast was delicious and "hit the spot" both days! Everyone there seemed to be enjoying their stay as much as us. I highly recommend the Snow Goose if you're visiting Dover, Wilmington, Stratton or just passing through the area. We look forward to going back soon!

If you are looking for hospitality, you have found it here at the Snow Goose. Innkeepers Cindy and Ron have mastered the art of unobtrusive, yet genuine and friendly service. Very conveniently located with comfortable rooms, one feels at home here. Breakfast can be as communal or private as you would like and you can indulge in Cindy's yummy muffins and pancakes or keep on the health track with a lighter version of eggs Benedict (you will never miss the hollandaise sauce........really). Enjoy your own fireplace in the winter or gaze at hummingbirds in the summer whether you are preparing to enjoy all that Southern Vermont has to offer or plan to kick back with a good book. There is something for everyone here. I highly recommend the Snow Goose.

We stayed at Snow Goose Last weekend while doing the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. I was SO happy with our decision to stay at Snow Goose. The inn was very clean, and Cyndee, the innkeeper, was wonderful. From the moment we stepped in we felt like we were at home. We have a very large shy dog, and he was more than welcomed at Snow Goose and Cyndee and Ron were great with him! They had a lovely porch that made it very easy for us to take him out and it was great place to relax after a long hike with the beautiful gardens and babbling brook in the back. Breakfast here was wonderful in the morning, (Cyndee is also a trained chef) and they were incredibly accommodating with my food allergies, and for goodness sake EAT THE BACON (I swear Cyndee has bacon magic). The room felt fresh and clean. Cyndee was attentive to all our needs, and made us feel welcome in her inn. We will definitely be back to Snow Goose, and we would highly recommend it!

I also stayed last weekend for 2 nights at the inn with 10 WMWW. The Inn was wonderful. The rooms were clean and roomy even with 4 women to a room. The water was always hot even with all our showering. Cindee made us all feel most welcome and the wine and cheese hour was really a fun extra. The dinners were nice and healthy and the breakfast was delicious.
