Grafton, Southern Vermont, Vermont

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Nice location a short walk from the center of Grafton
  • Upscale, historic restaurant and casual pub on-site
  • All rooms have iPod docks and classic New England decor
  • Picturesque setting with pond for seasonal swimming
  • Small (dated) fitness center and outdoor tennis courts
  • Property has trails and horse stables for rent
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Pets allowed for one-time fee (in guest houses only)

Cons

  • No TVs in the rooms
  • Rooms on the higher floors in the Main Tavern have spotty Internet
  • Families with children under 5 must stay in the Homestead Cottage, the Cricketers Suite, or one of the guesthouses
  • Only AT&T provides service in Grafton

Bottom Line

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.

 Location

On Main Street in Grafton, Vermont

Situated in the quaint town of Grafton (with a population of 600), the Grafton Inn is a beautiful historic home on Main Street within walking distance of several museums and restaurants. There are many painstakingly restored historic buildings in Grafton that deliver the charm of picturesque New England towns. Many of the historic homes are private residences and therefore are not open for tours, but Grafton is a very walkable town with several museums, art galleries, antique shops, and restaurants. Horse-and-buggy tours are also available.
