Pleasant enough.

The Fullerton Inn is quaint. The room was smaller than it appeared online.

Outstanding Accomodations for a Getaway Weekend

4.0 on December 02, 2012

First time we stayed here and loved its central location and the seasonal decorations throughout the common areas of the inn. The decor definitely placed us in the holiday spirit. It was the perfect place to get away for a peaceful weekend as it's a short 2 hour drive from our home outside of Albany, New York. The nightly rate was very reasonable, our room was clean, and the innkeepers and staff were very friendly. What more could you ask for. There was even an authentic Scottish pub a short walk from the inn for an evening night cap. We will certainly will be back again. Thank you Brett and Nancy!


5/2012 Stay

3.8 on May 08, 2012

We were looking for something in lower Vermont and came across the Inn on the website. I spoke with the Innkeepers and they were extremely friendly and accommodating. The most important feature for me was the NO PET rule. I am highly allergic and have trouble traveling lately, with everyone bringing their pets along on trips. We booked a room with their guidance and it was a lovely experience. The Inn is old and has plenty of charm. Everything was well kept and cozy. We felt very welcome. The breakfast was continental but quite varied. We had many choices of fresh baked goods, juices,cereals, local waffle mix waffles and my favorite the large fresh fruit bowl. We were very pleased with the overall experience and would gladly stay at The Fullerton Inn again.


Excellent, Warm-hearted Inn

This place is a home away from home. There was a nice restaurant, warm breakfast, games & books, and room was beautiful. The owners were helpful with finding other places, too.


Unexpected Gem

3.8 on April 18, 2012

We ended up at the Fullerton Inn because there was no vacancy in nearby Grafton, VT. We were pleasantly surprised at Fullerton because of how nice it was. Unknowingly we ended up at what our first choice should have been.


Excellent Place to Stay

4.6 on March 25, 2012

Clean, friendly inn with a spectacular dining room & pub. The Mussels were to die for. We will be back.


Ten days at the Fullerton Inn

4.0 on October 12, 2011

Chester native "returned". Worked in this Inn as a High school senior 1950-51. This massive three story structure looks and feels like something that is the center of Chester town. The breakfast is extra great. Not only excellent choice with variety each day but also a chance to chat with other guest from "all-over". Take a drive to Chester Depot and see Flamstead Mountain loaming over the town and Stone Houses on "North Street". Stan Hunsdon


Clean but small

2.8 on September 27, 2011

We had a tough time finding rooms in the area that would take us for 1 night only during the Foliage season. The rooms were small but clean. The included breakfast was so-so. The people were very nice that worked at the Inn.
