This was a great BnB. I liked that the room had its own bathroom and the option of an adjoining room for extra family members. Owners were very friendly and enjoyable to talk with.

I can't say enough about the charm of the property and its kind and friendly owners, not to mention the historical significance of the home. In addition to enjoying the beautiful and convenient surroundings, you will be spoiled by a gourmet breakfast from locally sourced ingredients. Cookies and hot/cold drinks are available around the clock, including water infused with fruits and herbs. I would love to return with less of a "travel agenda" just to slow down more and enjoy the hammocks shaded by weeping willows along the river bank and all the low-key passtimes available in the wonderful colonial-style parlor, set in the original part of the house from the Allen brothers era. Meanwhile, we had so much fun exploring Hildene and Mt. Equinox (along the same stretch of road) as well as Manchester Center and Bennington, both short drives away...and it was convenient to hit MassMoCA on our return to southern New England. My teenage daughter and I stayed in "Ethan's room", which is actually two rooms (queen/private bath connected to a bonus twin bedroom)...a perfect balance of together time and personal space. After a year of COVID-impacted living and all the usual life stress, I really just needed these guys to make my breakfast and my bed for me in these lovely surroundings - so restorative!

The breakfast was served with individual attention to food sensitivities, and Michael was excellent with his ability to make food both delicious and within my diet. We had an excellent stay.

The inn was from the colonial period and has been very well maintained and decorated to provide a sense of the wonderful age of the property. The hosts were very professional and customer oriented. Their concern for the comfort of the guests and effort made to achieve it was very satisfying.
