Swift House Inn

Swift House Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The historic Swift House Inn is located within walking distance of downtown Middlebury. The hotel's 20 rooms are spread throughout the Main House (formerly a Governor's Mansion), the Carriage House, and the Gate House. The Gate House rooms -- located a half-block from the Main House -- are the least expensive, in part due to traffic noise from Route 7. Room decor varies, allowing guests to choose a room depending on personal style. Some rooms offer a classic New England B&B vibe with floral wallpaper, fireplaces, and four-poster beds, while others are more understated, with soft-toned walls and tasteful furniture. One of the inn's highlights is its delicious and free breakfast, and an on-site restaurant, Jessica's, is a popular destination for both guests and locals.
The Norwich Inn

The Norwich Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The historic Norwich Inn -- where President James Monroe and Dr. Seuss have both stayed -- is a quaint, well-maintained inn with just 38 rooms. Rooms have a cozy New England feel, with floral wallpaper, Victorian antiques, and exposed brick, but they also offer modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Rooms are divided between the Main House, Ivy House, and Walker House, and vary both in size and decor. While the inn is popular with those visiting nearby Dartmouth College, it also attracts visitors for its on-site brewery, welcoming pub, and dining room.
Juniper Hill Inn

Juniper Hill Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This historic property has seen some pretty famous folks pass through its doors in the past -- Presidents Roosevelt, Coolidge, Wilson, and Eisenhower, as well as several famous artists, all visited this lovely B & B. The property still has a relaxing vibe -- the 16 unique rooms are decorated in an old-world style, the quiet library is an inviting place to relax, and the manicured grounds and surrounding serene woods help create a peaceful atmosphere. Those who feel they need to be connected to the rest of the world might want to look elsewhere (there’s no Internet and no TV at the inn), but this is a wonderful pick for a romantic getaway.
Castle Hill Resort and Spa

Castle Hill Resort and Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Castle Hill Resort and Spa offers old-world charm that is all about the details -- from the historic wood-paneled walls to the library filled with old books. There are just 10 quaint rooms here, offering antique touches like Tiffany lamps, claw foot tubs, and brick fireplaces. While the vibe is definitely historic, there are also modern amenities on offer including free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. The outdoor spaces here are equally as special, including lush gardens, ivy-covered stone walls, and a heated pool. While the resort is complete with an elegant dining room and spa, some guests complain that the castle lacks an elevator and some of the furniture is worn.
Trapp Family Lodge

Trapp Family Lodge Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This 96-room lodge has become a destination unto itself, not just for its excellent amenities and impressive views, but for its rich history. The charming property is still run by the famous Trapp family, whose story was told in the movie The Sound of Music, and original memorabilia from past generations is displayed everywhere. Rooms, though large, bright and comfortable, have fairly bland cottage-style decor. But there’s a lot to do on-site -- the hotel has three restaurants, a brewery and bakery, a fitness center, and three pools (including an adults-only option).
The Pitcher Inn

The Pitcher Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

From the outside the Pitcher Inn might appear like a typical New England B&B, but once inside, the quality and character of this property is revealed. All 11 rooms and suites are individually decorated according to a different theme -- such as mountain, ski, or trout -- and feature knickknacks and antiques that are unique to Vermont. Rooms have luxe extras: All have Jacuzzi tubs and radiant floor heating, and some have wood-burning fireplaces, balconies, or huge steam showers. Rooms also offer free Wi-Fi and Nespresso machines. While the inn offers a delicious restaurant and acclaimed wine list, prices are quite high for the location.
The Vermont Inn

The Vermont Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Vermont Inn is a historic, family-run property in tiny Mendon, located halfway between Killington Ski Resort and Rutland. It has classic New England decor throughout and an overall cozy feel, but common spaces could use refreshing. Rooms are homey if not luxurious, and vary in size and configuration. They all have small flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and clean bathrooms, and some have features such as four-poster beds, fireplaces, and jetted tubs. The pub offers a wonderful breakfast that is included in the nightly rate; for lunch and dinner, guests must go elsewhere. The property was featured on the Travel Channel show Hotel Impossible, during which it received an upgraded, shabby-chic look in the Bridal Suite and improved landscaping on the grounds.
The Grafton Inn

The Grafton Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This historic inn is a popular choice for weddings due to its picturesque location in Grafton and reputation for delicious food. The 45 rooms are spread throughout the Main Tavern and four guesthouses, all clustered in the same area. Rooms are typical for New England, with four-poster beds, lots of floral prints, and tight bathrooms. No rooms have TVs, but they do have iPod docks, and Wi-Fi is free (although some rooms have a spotty connection). Unlike similar nearby hotels, the Grafton Inn has extra features including tennis courts, a fitness center, and a pond for swimming.
The Inn at Ormsby Hill

The Inn at Ormsby Hill Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Inn at Ormsby Hill is a quintessential historic B&B. Guests come to know the innkeepers -- who make a delicious free breakfast -- by name over the course of a peaceful stay. Each of the 10 rooms is individually decorated, but they all share a theme of classic New England decor with lots of patterns and warm colors. There are no extra amenities, like a fitness center or spa, that might be the norm at a larger hotel. Modern extras like flat-screen TVs and iPod docks keep the inn from feeling dated, and some rooms have lovely extras such as fireplaces, private decks, and steam-sauna rooms. Even though it is located on a relatively busy street, the property is large enough for short walks or watching the sunrise over the mountains.
