“Absolute gem: the best part of the trip!”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We got stuck in a snowstorm and called late at night for a room. The staff was amazing and accommodating, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the inn as a whole completely delightful!

Reviewed 26 February 2012

The room was dusty. The cutains were flimsy and the blinds were old and insubstantial. The bathroom was old with terrible plumbing. The toilet wouldn't flush without holding the handle down for a long time. The shower had barely any pressure. It stopped at one point while I was taking a shower. There were only 2 small bath towels. The bathroom was tiny. The breakfast was ok, but the pancakes were soooo greasy. It was as if they were fried. The hotel is just long in the tooth in need of updates!!! The floral couches in the lobby need to be changed! I called the night before for a wakeup call because I didn't trust the old basic alarm clock. The alarm clock worked, but we never got the wakeup call. The inn is charming on the outside and by the fire in the lobby. The waiters at breakfast were very nice. The check in person was lobotomized (monotone, devoid of emotion). I didn't eat dinner there this time, but did 20 yrs ago (it was great then). I would never stay here again.

As the General Manager, I was very disappointed to read this guests review of their recent stay here at the Inn. I immediately shared this review with my housekeeping staff, as there are several specific areas touched on that they are responsible for. Though we don’t like to see a review like this posted, we can only take from it what we can do to make future stays here better, and raise our standards even higher.

The reviewer does not state if she ever brought any of these issues to our attention. Reading through this review it would seem that she did not. I would always hope that any guest who is experiencing any issues; whether with cleanliness, amenities, dining or other services would please notify one of our employees immediately so that we can address the issue in real time while the guest is here. I also questioned our employees to see if any guest came to them with the feedback the reviewer stated in their review. To see something like this posted publicly without the benefit of having the opportunity to correct it is disappointing to us.

Regarding the plumbing issues, unfortunately one of our main water supply pumps failed over the weekend. A plumber was immediately called and a new pump was installed the next morning. Regrettably this is a situation that was out of our control and we did everything possible to assist our guests. Not all rooms were affected by the plumbing problem, so I wish the guest brought this to our attention, so we could have relocated them to another room or made an adjustment to their room rate. Both the slow flushing toilet and the stopped water during the shower were caused by this pump failure. I hope anyone who reads this understands that this was a unique situation. We are also currently renovating many of our bathrooms at the Inn.

To address a few other items, our pancakes are pan fried in clarified butter, which we have always received compliments on. We are not sure why in this one instance they appeared greasy, but I have shared this remark with our breakfast chef. We appreciate the fact that these reviewers thought our breakfast servers were friendly.

Regarding the title of the review “needs facelift,” we are somewhat baffled. Other than the floral couch, which we have slated to replace this spring, we are not sure what this guest is referring to. The photo attached with that title is a shot of the hallway leading to the front desk. The photo shows the beautiful barn board walls and the new lobby carpeting we just installed last year, with the new mats we bought this year to protect it from the winter mud that gets tracked in.

Unfortunately, the name on this review does not match any name in our computer that stayed here in February. I have tried to reach out to this reviewer on Tripadvisor messages to personally speak with them about their stay, and hope that they respond as I sincerely care about every guests experience here at the Inn.

The Quechee Inn (formerly the Inn at Marshland Farm) is located at the site of the former homestead of Vermont’s first lieutenant governor; the oldest part was built in 1793. It is quaint and charming, despite having modern amenities. Each of the 24 rooms is different in size, layout and decoration, but the general theme is New England colonial. Two of the rooms are suites, each with a separate sitting room.
We have been coming to the Quechee Inn for over 20 years; we usually come 2 or 3 times a year. Since Rick Trahan took over as innkeeper and general manager several years ago, he has engaged in an extensive program of upgrades and improvements. The bedding has been updated and improved; rooms have been repainted and/or repapered. Each room now has free wireless internet, a flat screen TV and a refrigerator. Complimentary sparkling water is provided in each room. The Quechee Inn is now in the process of upgrading and replacing the bathrooms. (As a result, older reviews of the Quechee Inn are out of date.)
In the morning, a complimentary breakfast is offered in the dining room, which usually includes scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, home fries or some other potatoes, coffee and tea, a selection of juices, and an assortment of cereal, breads, and fruits.
The Inn also serves dinner and another upgrade has been the quality of the food. The menu is available on the Inn’s website, but we especially like the roasted garlic shrimp appetizer (4 jumbo shrimp) and the bruschetta primavera (loaded with good stuff). For dinner I can recommend the slow roasted crispy duck, the filet mignon and the grilled salmon. (The garlic shrimp is also available as an entrée.) There is also a fresh catch of the day entrée. For dessert, I recommend the double berry tart, the crème brulee or the molten chocolate lava cake. The restaurant also offers a fairly large wine selection at reasonable prices. The chef, Ed Kroes, was featured in the winter 2011-2012 issue of Woodstock Magazine; unfortunately, the article doesn’t talk very much about the Inn itself.
The first floor has a huge gathering room with a large fireplace. It is furnished with sofas and overstuffed chairs. Decorations include artwork by local painters that is for sale and antique farm tools. There is also a piano and bar, where one can order drinks and “small bites” meals for about $9.00. In the afternoons, complimentary coffee, tea and cookies are provided.
Depending on the season, one can use the wilderness trails, go cross-country skiing, shoe shoeing, kayaking, canoeing, and fly-fishing. The Inn does not have an exercise room, but one can use the facilities at the nearby Quechee Club for a modest daily fee. There are a number of nearby places to visit, including the town of Woodstock and its charming shops, Billings Farm (where you can go on a sleigh ride, which we enjoyed), the Rockefeller Mansion, and the Quechee Gorge.
The Quechee Inn is available for weddings (it can accommodate 225 people outdoors or 65 people seated indoors). The Inn is also a popular destination for office holiday parties.
The Quechee Inn offers various packages throughout the year; you should check the website to see what is offered. (We recommend the “winter warmer” 2-night package and the Wednesday night prix-fixe dinner.) In addition, the Quechee Inn has a Facebook page; specials will also be offered to Facebook “friends.”

Room Tip: Try to get a suite or a room on the second floor

I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to write such a detailed and positive review. We have been very active in proceeding with upgrades to our rooms while still maintaining the historical identity of the Inn. It is our goal to see all of our guests enjoy the Inn, the Common Room and the beautiful grounds. I am very fortunate to have a great Staff here, and we all look forward to making every guest fully enjoy everything the Inn has to offer.

Again, thanks for the review!

We have been going to the Quechee Inn for winter getaways off and on for twenty years. We enjoyed a two-night stay in mid-January, after an absence of several years. Happily, the inn remains the same year after year. We were there on a Wednesday night and enjoyed their mid-week prix fixe menu in the dining room. A jazz duo entertained throughout the dinner hour. Most enjoyable.
We go for the cross-country skiing and were disappointed because of the lack of snow. We did manage an hour and a half on the icy tracks though.
Breakfast was somewhat skimpy, but adequate. One has a choice of several continental style offerings and a choice of cooked-to-order eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage. Nothing special.
The rooms are lovely and well appointed. High speed wi-fi and flat panel televisions. The rates are quite economical.
It's easy to recommend the Quechee Inn.

We brought a group of 19 professionals to the Inn in the late Fall for a one night 2 day retreat. Due to the time of year we were able to secure the Inn for our entire group. The welcome and service by the Inn's staff was excellent. All attendees commented on the wonderful and charming guest rooms. While this is not a modern meeting facility (a true country Inn) the Inn met and exceeded our requirements for an intimate and relaxing retreat. Hors D’oeuvres and dinner were outstanding as were breakfast and lunch. We conducted round table discussions during the day and relaxed by the fire in the lounge in the evening. One of our group entertained on the Inn’s piano. Some attendees took time to enjoy the grounds and the Village of Quechee which has recovered nicely from Hurricane Irene.
I would be pleased to speak to you about our experience.
