Our 2 bedroom suite was perfect, like a small apartment. The bedrooms were separated by a cozy living room and appointed with modern amenities. The food and hospitality were the true high points of our stay. Darren prepared the most delectable and unforgettable Vermont take on a Dutch pancake. We were a short 10 min drive from Jay Peak.

Thank you so much for your compliments! We're glad our hospitality was everything you hoped for and more! Our Vermont Dutch Baby Pancakes are the newest addition to our rotating menu of breakfast items each day, and they're quickly closing in on our Blackberry-Stuffed French Toast as the guests' favorite. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Very comfortable beds in a room well-appointed with amenities and the comforts of home. Delicious breakfast overlooking a pretty garden with a variety of choices including amazing freshly cooked options like blackberry-filled french...

This place is so comfortable...the bed was fantastic. They put memory foam and a down topper on the beds. Never have we slept that good away from our own bed. The food here is unmatched. I promise if you book at this 5 Star B&B...you will be glad you did. Darren and Lynne make you feel like you are family....
