A Retreat for Your Soul

5 on April 18, 2015

I live in Connecticut, the land of B&B's so why would I travel to Vermont (over 4 hours away) to stay for a weekend? Because the Governor's House in Hyde Park is worth it. The view from the back of the house is breathtaking. The inn is in a beautifully restored historic home. The rooms are unique and lovely. It is peaceful and deeply relaxing there, restorative. That's not even the best part, its the hostess, Suzanne. I can not believe she runs the entire inn and prepares all the absolutely scrumptious food by herself! She is a wonder. There are all these little touches, fresh flowers, warm cookies on the side board, the lovely garden, the downstairs bathroom that is covered in a fantastic mural, late check out and fresh local apples to snack on in the fruit bowl. I went with a girlfriend for one of her Jane Austen weekends and had a marvelous time! High Tea, quill pen writing, juicy book discussions, sumptuously prepared Regency style cuisine and English country dancing! Needless to say, this is an annual tradition. Give yourself the gift of a stay. You deserve it.


Our Fifty Year Anniversary

5 on October 28, 2014

We recently had the priviledge of staying at the Governor's House in Hyde Park, VT. The owner and hostess, Suzanne, made us feel welcome and very comfortable. We enjoyed the Afternoon Tea which she has studied abroad and has become very expert. We had a very stimulating and delighting conversation with the other guests and hostess over tea. As it was our 50th anniversary, Suzanne had all the "special touches" to help make it a memorable occasion for us. The fallen golden leaves made the area seem like a backdrop of autumn countryside. Our room was quaint yet very comfortable and cozy at the same time. We hope to go back for another stay as soon as possible. Dalton and Judy Gossett.

A wedding to remember...

4.6 on June 25, 2013

My husband and I decided to have a small, intimate wedding at the Governor’s House in Hyde Park and we are so happy that we did. The house itself was clean, well maintained, and beautiful. The landscaping was welcoming and the lawn a relaxing place where our families and friends could relax and enjoy each other’s company. Suzanne, the innkeeper, took care of most of the details of our wedding and was very efficient with a thoughtful attention to detail. The food was fresh and delicious and arranged beautifully on the dining room table. The cake was simple yet elegant and very tasty. Having our wedding at the Governor’s House was easy, inexpensive and memorable.


Family Reunion

5 on September 15, 2012

Attended family reunion associated with a 50th wedding anniversary. Wanted to be close to everyone yet have privacy. Inn was beautiful--we stayed in the former governor's office. Lovely room, furniture, and very comfortable chairs and bed. Breakfast was yummy, and Suzanne gave us some good hints about things to do in the area. Our stay at the Governor's House was a definite highlight of our trip!


Best night's sleep

5 on July 09, 2012

The inn keeper has thought of everything. The entire house is beautiful and inviting. You will get the BEST night's sleep as the rooms are so comfortable and the bedding exquisite. The innkeeper is at the ready to assist you in planning your day whether you're staying in or going out (read, watch movies, play games, hike, ski, shop). I can't wait to go back!


A walk into history

5 on April 07, 2011

After staying at The Governor's mansion for three days & two nights I can recommend with confidence. This inn is a unique opportunity to step into history but enjoy modern conveniences. I was impressed by the attention the innkeeper, Suzanne, paid to the smallest detail to make my stay comfortable & enjoyable. The shelves of movies & selection of books made me want to stay longer than my schedule permitted. My room & bath were very clean, the food was delicious & the views of the mountains were beautiful.


Beautiful Inn with Great Atmosphere

4.6 on January 30, 2011

My fiance and I stayed in the English room over a long weekend in January. The inn is beautifully restored and was the perfect spot for a winter weekend escape. The breakfast was delicious, especially the muffins (the innkeeper was kind of enough to pack up extras for our long drive home). The inn's library was a great spot to sip wine and relax after two days of skiing at both Stowe and Smugglers Notch. We look forward to returning again soon.


My daughter's wedding

5 on August 29, 2010

My daughter had her wedding and reception here for a small group of family and friends. Everything was perfect and the host, Suzanne Boden, was most helpful to my daughter in planning and execution of her special day. A wonderful inn, elegant and historic. The dinner was delicious.
