The Waybury Inn is a superbly run, exceptionally managed and the best place I have ever stayed. The food was excellent, from the wonderful breakfasts to the amazing dinners. The staff was friendly, warm, welcoming, accommodating, attentive and far exceeded any expectations I had. They even went out of their way to play up the "Bob Newhart connection" when I...

We (3) came for dinner and couldn't have been more pleased. The gardens are lovely, the service was impeccable and accommodating, and the food was delicious! We all had the dried fruit salad with salmon. The salad was fresh and so was the salmon. Plus we got to tour the Bob Newhart memorabilia. The only reason I didn't give it...

We are glad you were able to enjoy our gardens, it is a beautiful time of year in Vermont. Another great time is during the fall when the leaves are changing colors.

We spent three nights here in early July and had a lovely stay. The front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. Our room was done in more of an Adirondack style than Vermont inn, but it was charming and comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we've had at any B & B anywhere. We had dinner as well,...

Thank You so much for your kind words, our breakfast is something we like to talk about as it is a hot breakfast made to order. Yes our cell service and WiFi can be a bit spotty. When coming down Rout 125 out of the Beautiful Green Mountains we are one of the first places cell service will come in....

You will not be disappointed. We came here first to get away from stressful jobs to relax. We now come every 90 days no matter what. The attention to detail when taking care of their "house guests" is over the top. You feel at home, and everyone treats you like family. Joe, Tracy, James, Laura and Laura, Brianna......everyone is wonderful....

The Good: --James, the pub waiter, anticipated every need, including instructions for fire pit if we wanted to use it when he wasn't around. --Ditto front desk gal whose parents moved to Florida--who let us stay one night instead of 2 and accommodated extra person (our son). So thoughtful. --Spotless. Both from sheets to sink to manicured garden w/paths. --Amazing...

This was my 3rd time staying here for business and I was not disappointed. While the hotel and room are very nice, it was the staff that makes this the place to stay. From the manager to the wait staff, you are treated like a VIP.

If you visit this place hoping to reconnect with your memories of the Stratford Inn from the Bob Newhart show, you will not be disappointed. Although the Inn has seem some changes you get the feeling that you are in the show. The quirkiness of the activities from the show was evident from our first few minutes as we walked...

We would love to have you back in the Fall, one of the best times of year in New England. I hope you were able to get some pictures of the Bob Newhart memorabilia while you were here.

I really enjoyed staying here. Was down here for a music festival. Thought it was pretty cool to be staying at the old Waybury Inn from the Newhart show. Of course only the outside was used during the show, don't expect the inside to look anything like the show. Rooms were nice, hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Sat on...

Definitely went there because of the Newhart connection. Always wanted to. It's definitely different from the show obviously. Brianna at the front desk is very knowledgable as she has lived in the area a long time. The owners also live nearby. It was so warm it made me sleepy sometimes. The pub is down the hall and is very good....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Waybury Inn is known not only for its role on the Bob Newhart Show, but also for its extraordinary dining options and beautiful accommodations. The Waybury Inn's thirteen guest rooms are decorated with a little whimsy and provide all of the comforts expected in today’s lodging. It is true that we are over 200 years old, but we have spent the last ten years renovating and decorating to offer the best blends of historic charm and comfortable surroundings. Dog-friendly accommodations, deep claw-foot bathtubs, free wireless internet, a dedicated guest PC, and a full service bar are just some of the amenities we offer. All of our guests also enjoy a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast each morning. ... more   less
