How to Get There
My wife and I went for a relaxing weekend get away. We stayed in room 10, It was beautiful. The inn is comfortable and the grounds are amazing. Every staff member we encountered made us feel welcomed. We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful stay here. The room was awesome. We enjoyed it so much we didn't want to leave. The staff in both the restaurant and the tavern was very friendly and accommodating, even making us a meal to accommodate food allergies. We were very grateful. The grounds, including the river behind the Inn were inviting and very relaxing. We wished we were there in warmer weather so we could have enjoyed the pool. We will definitely be back.
We were very happy with room #10. High ceilings, king-size bed, gas fireplace which you could see from the bedroom OR bathroom, an awesome jacuzzi tub, double sinks, and a large standing shower. The room was very clean and bright. They included eye masks in case you didn't like the early sunlight coming in from the high windows. Breakfast was delicious with several local options. As a Celiac, they had the most delicious gluten-free breakfast biscuit and even gluten-free pancake mix! Samantha took excellent care of us. We would definitely stay here again!
Our kids got us a Groupon getaway and it was perfect. Our room was spacious, with a large bathroom, the entry to which was situated off to the side of the room so you could leave a light on and not bother you while you tried to sleep. The gas fieplace was appreciated. We ate both nights in the restaurant and enjoyed the food immensely. The staff was quite helpful with suggestions for local activities - went for a nice walk alongside the West River a bit past the dam in Townsend. On the wat to Brattleboror, the Grafton Village Cheese Shop is not to be missed and the art museum in Brattleboro was worth the stop. Will go again.
It's hard to strike the right balance of great food and ambiance. The Four Columns Restaurant almost makes it. We had drinks and dinner at the restaurant. If you can commandeer the little parlor with the gas fireplace for a pre-dinner cocktail, do. It's a very nice space. The bar is awkwardly set up, affording almost no privacy. The drinks are very expensive, the bartender, preoccupied.
In the dining room, which is kept a tad too cold, the food is very good. There are small plate options that are perfect for people who don't want a large meal. I recommend the mussels. The service is very friendly but not very attentive.
All in all, the feeling I got is that the help is a little distracted. Which is too bad, because this place could be fabulous.
