Snow Goose Inn
Ranked #5 of 12 Dover B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 14, 2013

For anyone who's looking to get away from the cell phone, social media & video drama world (if just for a selfish moment), this is the New England way to do so! The old world charm of this B & B brought us to a well needed weekend escape. Although we went post-foliage & pre-snow, the experience of the Snow Goose Inn was so graciously instilling to our needs of relaxation, calmness, romance and stress-free environment. The "chef prepared" personalized breakfast was deliciously unexpected. We are already preparing a group trip so our friends can experience the spiritually fulfilled time we endured.

I've been staying at The Snow Goose for a decade now -- which says a lot about the quality of this wonderful, rambling New England inn. The rooms are comfortable, the service is friendly, the breakfast always enjoyable. And I've never heard a word of complaint about the extra work involved in accommodating my disability and my special diet. In fact, the owner, Cyndee Frere, makes it easy for me to travel when other places say no. The Snow Goose has my unqualified recommendation.

As friendly a place as you can imagine. You feel like you've been there before!
Comfortable accomodations, with a good breakfast. The wine and cheese at 5:30 is a nice touch. Cyndee is a great tour guide, as she really knows the area. Any season, she has all the information for you.

I would definitely recommend staying here! Very clean, the bed was very comfortable and Cyndee the owner chef is top shelf! The breakfast was simply awesome, many choices from a full menu. A nice romantic Vermont Inn!

Very charming B&B. The owner, Cyndee is very nice and welcoming. Each morning my friend and I had an excellent breakfast, made by Cyndee. The inn is clean and beautifully maintained. I would definitely recommend the Snow Goose to anyone, and can't wait to return.

What to say? We wanted to have a truly Vermont experience and the Snow Goose Inn was what we was looking for. Everything is authentic and carefully made for you to feel at home. From the warm welcome of Cyndee, an amazing and caring innkeeper, till the delicious wine and cheese moments and the amazing morning breakfast (all local, all organic food) our experience was a truly perfect one. The room we stayed in was large and could easily fit 5 (we were 3). The best part of our staying was to meet other guests around the large sitting room and savor great cheese while looking out to the foliage. I would highly recommend to anyone traveling in Vermont to stop there and stay at the Snow Goose Inn.You will not regret it a second.

We stayed at the Snow Goose in over the weekend. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was good. Cyndee was a gracious hostess. The 5:30 wine and cheese was nice to meet people staying there. Very close to Mount Snow. I would definitely stay here again.
