I had a little trouble coming up with a rating that I felt comfortable with for this Inn. First I must say that we often stay at various places in Vermont that I would give a rating of 4 or 5 to. This Inn in a lot of ways is not quite the in some ways. What is does have... More

You have hit on many wonderful points of our Inn; it was built in 1810 as a stagecoach stop for travelers so as you mentioned that sometimes with the charm comes the age of a 200 year old building. Hopefully you will stay with us again in the future and may I recommend requesting a room with a stand up... More

We stayed at the Waybury for three nights last month. From the moment we pulled in we were in love! Everything about this place was as we had read about and hoped for.

It is our goal here at the Waybury to make each guest feel like they are family and from the sound of it I think we may have succeeded. Fall is really a special time of year in VT. I have always wanted to try the Hancock Hotel now I'm going to have to. More

This is a great New England country inn, the exterior of which was used on the Newhart Show. The inside is different from the show but clean, well furnished, and comfortable. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. Easy to visit Fort Ticonderoga from there. The restaurant is excellent particularly the cozy bar pub.

Biking in Vermont in the Fall by day, Maple Manhattans by the fire at night, sounds like a wonderful day that I'm sure many would be jealous of. Also our bar manager takes great pride in her monthly drink specials for sure. More

Well situated to be part of a fall foliage tour. Well maintained and staffed by capable and friendly people. Room was quite comfortable even if the "rustic" ambience was a little overdone.

Thank you for the kind review. We are very lucky to have a pub on site for that reason. Our Inn guests can also take their drink anywhere in the Inn. Many people like to take their drinks outside to our fire pit during warm weather or to our indoor fire place in the living room during colder months. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Waybury Inn is known not only for its role on the Bob Newhart Show, but also for its extraordinary dining options and beautiful accommodations. The Waybury Inn's thirteen guest rooms are decorated with a little whimsy and provide all of the comforts expected in today’s lodging. It is true that we are over 200 years old, but we have spent the last ten years renovating and decorating to offer the best blends of historic charm and comfortable surroundings. Dog-friendly accommodations, deep claw-foot bathtubs, free wireless internet, a dedicated guest PC, and a full service bar are just some of the amenities we offer. All of our guests also enjoy a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast each morning. ... more   less
