We planned a trip to ski Jay Peak, but did not have a place to where we were going to spend the night. We came across this amazing B&B right in Montgomery Center. Darren was a very good host and the place had everything you needed. Great choice of beers and wine and the bed was so comfortable! The breakfast... More

We really enjoyed this place. The hosts are very accommodating. Hot tub was hot a ready to enjoy. Delicious breakfast by Barb and then off to Jay Peak only 5 min away. After ski options were great. 3 restaurants within walking distance of our room and a few more with a couple mile drive.

This is a very neat historic inn. Darren and Lynne (Barb too!) worked extremely hard to treat us as if we were the only guests that mattered.
