This is B&B at its finest

4.6 on June 09, 2013

I stayed at my first B&B last weekend with my wife and daughter. I was raised in V.T. and forgot what a wonderful place it really is! The inn keepers allways went beyond expectations. They allways welcomed us when we would come back for the evening. We will talk about the breakfast for a long time. Local fresh fruit, Jams, syrup, and meats. The Ira Allen House will allway be in our memories as the home we had in V.T.


Had a wonderful stay, can't wait to get back!

Warm and inviting from the first moment we stepped into the Ira Allen House. This is the kind of Bed and Breakfast you always wish you stay; historic, ideally located, quaint and great food. Kevin gave us tons of information about the surrounding area as we were leaving and wouldn't let us go before he gave us cookies for the road! Can't wait to get back.


Lovely Inn

4.6 on February 15, 2013

We just spent a lovely long weekend at this charming and historic Inn. The Innkeepers are the best, exceeding our expectations! Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfasts by Chef Kevin were outstanding and made from many local products. We enjoyed the relaxing evenings by the fire listening to piano music! We will definitely return and highly recommend this Inn.


Fantastic Stay with Fantastic New Owners

5 on February 05, 2013

We had a remarkable stay at this lovely house. Kevin, one of the owners, really went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We walked in on a quite cold evening to a fire burning in the fireplace and chairs waiting for us to warm up. Chocolate chip cookies appeared in our room each night as a late-night treat. Breakfast was outstanding, with many fresh local ingredients. The rooms were full of character, but incredibly comfortable and welcoming at the same time. I can't say enough good things about the Ira Allen House.
