We stayed with Zelia and Gary in mid September for a weekend. They are the perfect hosts - they have a beautiful, historic impeccibly restored home in a lovely setting convenient to town. They make you feel like their friends, are so warm and welcoming, but they also give you space. All of the reviews are excellent and as others have said, are spot on, so i don't need to repeat what they have said. This is a wonderful spot because it really is more like staying at a friend's house than it is staying in a hotel or other commercial establishment. It gives you a great sense of Vermont hospitality - generous, local, fresh food, well prepared, absolutely delicious; lush garden setting, well crafted country house; great conversation and wonderful ideas for fun things to do in the area. Zelia and Gary are very plugged into the local scene, so you get a great sense of this community by staying with them.
We spent the rest of our vacation week in Charlotte in a rented cabin in the country, but this weekend at the On the Creek was the highlight for me!
