“Beautiful renovation of the mill, delightful owners.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you like historic houses, you will love this place. It is 4 miles south of Woodstock, very quiet, on a small river. Owners accommodated our children without any problem, and price was very reasonable. (off-season) History of the place, the doors, the renovation were fabulous. Floors are pretty creaky if you are trying to sneak to the bathroom without waking others, but old house lovers know that is just character. Breakfast was not fabulous, but we did not give them much time to prepare (called from the road late). No televisions, but large common area with games, books, and a woodburning stove. Nice trails for hiking behind the house. Owners were incredibly nice and kind, going out of their way to give us the best information and advice so we would have a perfect trip.

Room Tip: Check beds--some are more comfortable than others in terms of firmness. Kids would like the room wi...

Grist Mill House is a beautifully cared for historic building–it would be difficult to imagine a lovelier inn for a New England getaway. The Innkeepers are warm and generous, the breakfast delicious, the common areas comfortable and cozy (a wood burning stove!), the rooms beautifully kept and adorned. Just lovely. My husband and I look forward to returning.

We found the place peaceful and cozy. The sheets were sweet smelling and the beds very comfy.
We enjoyed Peter and Carol very much. The breakfast was delicious and graciously served.
We felt very much at home and considered spending an additional night but needed to be on our way.It was the best place we stayed on our visit to Vermont and would highly recommend it to others looking for a delightful experience.
The only thing we found inconvenient was the sharing of the bathroom.

A long weekend getaway with my neice began with a two night stay at this charming B & B. The Inn is hosted with grace, style and enthusiasm by Peter and Carole. Peter is an energetic and knowledgable innkeeper and will gladly share recipes (which we highly encourage him to publish) tales of yore (he has a great sense of humor), and touring information. Breakfast is served in a lovely corner room overlooking the babbling brook and the food is different every day. Bone China tea cups, silver service, and authentic period furniture enhance the experience and lend a feeling of traveling back in time.
The cozy living area, warmed by a fireplace and other friendly guests, was the perfect spot for evening tea and a game of scrabble. Our room overlooked the brook and was soooo comfy!!!
Hurricane Sandy reared her stormy head and we found ourselves unable to travel home. Peter and Carole both worked very hard to reassure us and assist us in locating another place to stay.
If you are looking for a change of pace from the hotel experience, I heartily recommend you stay here. In addition to the charming and personal care you receive at the Inn, there is so much to see in the surrounding area and you will find restaurants serving lunch and dinner nearby. We both loved it here, have many fond memories and will return at our first opportunity.

Our favorite place in New England & most affordable too! I loved that it was off the beaten path a bit, away from the touristy downtown area. Also do yourself a favor & pick up some of the maple syrup they serve at breakfast from Top Acres farm which is just a mile or two away! They were great little souvenirs for friends & family that they'll actually use & enjoy too! Charming, quaint & historic! Would love the opportunity to come again!

We had a wonderful two night stay at this historic B&B. What once was a grist mill, built in 1779, has been turned into an enchanting home. History surrounds you here, both in the building, the furnishings and the surroundings and the owners are eager to share their knowledge with you. The room was comfortable and, while 3 rooms shared a single washroom, it was never an inconvenience. What a marvellous thing to be lulled to sleep by the babbling brook that runs behind the building and to awaken in the night and see the millions of stars in the clear night sky. A different breakfast was served each day and we enjoyed them both. This establishment is definitely worth a return visit. :)

The Grist Mill House is a comfortable piece of history that you can be a part of. It was a joy to spend a evening in this unique environment. No TV, radio, cellphone...but yes, Wi-Fi.Your shoes are left in the mud room and the floors will creak as you make your way to to the only bathroom. You can walk down the road to a country store and an inn with a full restaurant. The house may be old but the bathroom isn't. Large and clean it has a skylight over the tub and plenty of hot water for a shower. Peter was an accommodating host who's pancakes served with local bacon were the best. Don't go to a hotel...stay in this piece of Vermont!

Room Tip: The Kedron Room is small but it is the first at the top of the stairs.
