How to Get There
We stayed at L'Auberge Provencale last week for the first time in about 15 years and were delighted to see that very little had changed. We were two couples with one room in the main building and one in the herb garden annex. Same beautifully appointed rooms and superb breakfast that we remembered from our previous visits. One nice addition is the bistro where you can enjoy a drink or a truly gourmet meal at the bar or at a table as an alternative to the more formal restaurant. The well tended grounds are delightful. Everyone we met at L'Auberge: the housekeeping staff, servers, receptionist and the owner couldn't have been more gracious. Highly recommended, along with a hike in Sky Meadows State Park, about a 15 minute drive away.
My wife and I splurged for the Larousse room which looked wonderful on the website. The room cost $329 per night and we expected much more than we got for that price. The carpet under the bed was dirty. There was a hole in the blanket the size of a silver dollar and also it was ripped near the top, in addition to being dirty. There was no microwave or refrigerator, though they did provide a bucket of ice.
Maybe it is the off season, but the front porch had none of the embellishments shown on the website when we arrived on a Tuesday. We have stayed at some wonderful B&B's around the country at much less cost. (Check out the Inn at Ormsby Hill in Manchester, VT). We gave a list of our "suggestions" to the manager and he did knock off some of the room charge. However, he needs to visit the room to see what we were concerned about. Bottom line, the room was very disappointing...nothing special.
On the plus side, the breakfasts were terrific and served by Jamie who was a touch of sunshine! The Inn itself is very inviting. We had dinner which was outstanding, but very expensive.
Next time we visit the area we will find another Inn and maybe have dinner at the Lauberge Provencal. But we will not be staying there again. Sorry. Most of our reviews are 5 stars.
My husband and I came for a romantic getaway to celebrate our anniversary, and we both agree that our stay at L'Auberge Provençal was one of excellence. They have grounds that are quaint and peaceful and food so delicious it will make you melt. We had a picnic lunch added to our package and it was well worth it! There was so much food and we personally never had a spread like that before, so experiencing that together for the first time was very special. Their unique pears we're also a part of the picnic and biting into one was an experience all it's own! Not sweet, but impressivly crisp and juicy. Dinner service was top notch, breakfast was exquisite and their hospitality service was 5 star worthy. Will come again. Will recommend. This was an experience that we won't forget, and we're leaving this morning completely refreshed.

The most perfect way to spend a dreary day. We had a wonderful lunch in the bar. Bloody Mary was delightfully bold and delicious. Melon gazpacho a fun tickle of flavors. Highly recommend! So professional. They always are so accommodating. Thanks again.
Have been here many times over the years and it’s always a pleasure. This time was no exception. The owner/manager, Celeste, is a gracious and friendly hostess. The current chef, Richard Wright, is exceptional. The setting is beautiful and as always the rooms are impeccable. The morning breakfast is also a joy. This morning the co-owner, chef Alain Borel, was actually in the kitchen making breakfast. A treat.
