Centerpiece of the quiet village of Hyde Park just 9 miles north of Stowe on Vermont Route 100, the recently restored 1893 Governor's Mansion offers the modern comforts with the gracious elegance of a earlier time. Period furnishings. Romantic bedroom fireplaces. Beautiful mountain views. Luxurious claw-foot tubs. Hot chocolate or warm cider at bedtime. Romance and elopement specials. Jane Austen weekends; a place she's love. In-room high-speed internet & WiFi. Free movie library. Full English afternoon tea. Fresh flowers and freshly-baked cookies.

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.

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!

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!

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.
