I was in No. VT for a lecture and the the organizers put me up in this great place. I operate a B&B in Massachusetts and Sheila, the owner of Thistledown, and I chatted about our experiences and how lucky we both are. The Thistledown Inn sits adjacent to the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, a 95 mile biking and walking... More

My girlfriend and I had a 1 night stay here during our Northeast trip. Sheila and Sharon were exceptional hosts.

My brother, sister-in-law and I stayed here for one night and all slept really good. The beds are amazing. They accommodated my dietary needs very well. No gluten or dairy in the breakfast and it was delicious. It's a nice clean place. The reason for 4 stars is because I had to share a shower with two other rooms. I... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this warm and charming B&B near Stowe, VT. Sheila and Sharon made the visit extra special. Breakfast each morning was delicious, we left with copies of recipes to try and duplicate back home.

This B&B is so beautiful and cozy! Both Sharon and Sheila (along with their friendly little dog) were there to greet us. This was the first B&B we had ever stayed at and it matched with what I had imagined a B&B should be. Our room (the Golden Thistle) was small, but really all the space we needed and the... More

We loved it here. They give you wine and maple cookies, and great view of the river, and rail trail behind the house goes straight to town. Sharon the innkeeper was helpful above and beyond the call of duty! Great restaurant recommends, fun in-house library, and on-site boutique of VT artisans.

This is the second time we have stayed at this B&B which means I liked it enough the first time to come back. The first time we stayed here was 2 years ago for Kayaking. This is a great place to stay if you kayak the Green River Reservoir. It is only like a 5 min. drive to the reservoir.... More

Definitely come back to kayak! I frequently arrange kayak rentals with Derek at UpNorth near the reservoir. He delivers and picks up the kayaks and life jackets at the reservoir. I can help you pack a couple of cold ones with local cheese and crackers to enjoy on one of the islands. Thanks for the kind review. More
