We had such a lovely room in a gorgeously maintained historic home. Our family was able to sit on the porch in rocking chairs drinking coffee, while viewing beautifully landscaped gardens and pond.Breakfast was incredible and the service fabulous. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful place! Peter and Patti

Visit the Northfield Inn for a night and you will find a clean room, beautiful grounds, and delicious multi-course breakfast. In addition, you may find a friendly "mother, aunt, grandmother, friend" in Aglaia, the Innkeeper. She is very accommodating, takes great interest in her guests, their travels, and their experience with her community.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Northfield Inn for the Norwich University Family weekend. The accomodations were great and Aglaia was a terrific host. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast meals were great. It is a five minute drive from Norwich University to the Inn. This was our first experience staying at a B&B and we would not hesitate to make reservations to stay here again.

My family and I booked 4 days at the Northfield Inn on a recent trip to Vermont. The terrible service and verbal treatment we received from the Inn Keeper, Aglaia, was dismaying. During an unseasonable cold spell, our rooms were very, very cold. There were no shampoos/lotions, etc., only a small bar of soap. Our group was scolded one evening for enjoying some time visiting (not quiet enough Aglaia said) and told we had her to thank for "fitting us in", when, in fact, there were many empty rooms that week. When one couple in our group arrived w/o their luggage (delayed at airport) Aglaia, when pressed, produced one toothbrush that they could both share! We did not feel welcome at all and would strongly caution prospective guests to avoid this Inn. There are many, many others situated near Norwich University and the neighboring towns. The house itself is very charming, but if you don't feel welcome, what does it matter?

We found the Northfield on the web and return every Feb. for a Valentine's weekend. Aglaia is so welcoming and now is a friend.

We spent a relaxing few days at this Inn. We needed a few days of 'down time' and this did not disappoint. It was a peaceful and picturesque location, with a welcoming and hospitable host. Aglaia had great recommendations for local highlights from scenic drives to dinner reservations. The breakfast at the inn was superb. The inn was spotless and tidy, lovely porches, refreshments available round the clock. Our room on the second floor had wonderful vista views, and right next to a shared balcony complete with a comfy swing. If you want a Vermont getaway this is perfect.

Recently spent 2 nights at thr Northfield Inn (06/2010). Room was ideally located close to Norwich University. Room was a little smaller than anticipated. Bed was smaller than a standard Queen. Bathroom shower you had to turn sideways to get into. All that being said, service was excellent. It was also a very peaceful stay in an idyllic location. Take time to sit outside and look over the mountain. Fantastic, well behaved dogs!

Our stay at the Northfield was the most pleasant of our Vermont stays yet. The owner is the sweetest and treats you like family. I felt related to her. The surroundings are wonderful and the atmosphere will drop your blood pressure several points. It's serene and the accomodations are very neat and clean and the food is like none I've had elsewhere. Hot granola! WOW! I highly recommend this Inn.

Fabulous remodel. Original flavour. Aglaia's old country hospitality is second to none. The course breakfast alone is with the visit. Super amenities.

We were visiting my daughter at Norwich U and needed last minute accommodations. An internet search turned up the Northfield Inn and we are very glad it did. The hostess and chef were both charming and friendly. The inn is a turn of the century manor decorated with antiques and period pieces. All of the rooms were beautiful. Breakfast was superb and presentation was excellent. Snacks, such as fruit, nuts, cookies , pastries and soda were available throughout the day. The hostess, Aglaia is a remarkable woman who feels like an old friend the moment you meet her. Guests are treated like family. I would highly recommend this place and intend to go back.

A beautifully restored Victorian nestled in the trees on a hilltop in rural VT. The innkeeper is warm & welcoming -- the whole experience perfect. Summer, winter & foliage season would all be great here.

The Northfield Inn combines the beauty of Vermont, the atmosphere of 100 years ago, and delicious homemade breakfasts, and goodies out all day & evening. Great getaway!

Generally, our stay here was OK. The food was good, but a bit skimpy. The Inn was clean and neat. However, when we got there we were told our room was in the basement. On the phone I was told "lower" level. The room was adequate if you like being in the dark. I did not like the idea of having to keep my bedroom door open in order to get heat into the room. Outside the room was a common area. We missed the "Inn" experience. I think breakfast could be a more flexible. Treats in the afternoon were "run of the mill" packaged food-nothing exciting. The Inn keeper was nice, but not overly welcoming.

We went to see the fall color in Oct 2009. From the time we were greeted at the door by Aglaia, untill the last hugs were given, it was an incredible experience. A great location to use as a home base to explore the area. Her recomendations for sightseeing and local resturants added to the experience. Breakfast was beyond any thing you would expect. Definately a place to experience.

We have stayed at a lot of Inns and this by far was our favorite. The decor was beautiful and yet the inn has lots of warmth. The service was outstanding and the breakfast was gourmet and very filling. Aglaia is a delightful hostess.

We were so fortunate that there was space at this lovely Inn for us even though we didn't reserve ahead. The Hostess was so welcoming, and especially made our 4 year old daughter feel at home (so much that our daughter cried when it was time to leave). We would have spent our whole weekend just at the Inn, but followed great recommendations from Aglaia and her staff about things to see on our first visit to Vermont, and knew that at the end of the afternoon we would have a comfortable place to come back for refreshment and respite. Among many other services she provided, the Hostess made a reservation for us at a great restaurant for dinner. On our departure, she filled a bag with fruit (and would have given other treats had we not turned them down) for our trip back to Canada. I would definitely recommend this Inn to others.

I have stayed at the Northfield Inn many times over the years and I am finally taking the time to sing its praises online. The guest rooms are charming and the breakfasts are delicious and incredibly generous, portion-wise! Several courses every time. It is such a joy to sit around the table with the other guests in the morning and look at the mountain views and enjoy conversations with people from all over the country, and sometimes the world. Aglaia the innkeeper is such a sweetheart. She’ll give you a hug. The Victorian-style decor is lovely, and the nice thing is that the place is anything but stuffy. You can sit back and relax. It feels like home at the Northfield Inn.

My recent stay at the Northfield Inn left me more relaxed than I have been in years. The Inn itself is hidden yet convenient to everything. The staff is courteous and kind. The breakfasts are unbelievable! I hope to return some day. I highly recommend this establishment!

Only positive things to say about the Inn, innkeeper and staff; everything about our stay was excellent. Breakfast was incredible and the owner was very accomodating of our requests. I would highly recommend this for the casual traveler if they are looking to be pampered for the night or for the traveler to Norwich University if they want to be close - its a seven minute walk. Everything was clean, tidy and welcoming.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Northfield Inn, on May 7 - 11, 2009, from the time we arrived to all the hugs when we left I can't thank Aglaia "THE GREATEST INNKEEPER" for a great stay. The food, rooms and hospitality were great. She had many returning guest, and we do know why, she treated us like her family. I think she even adopted my Grandchildren. Thank you Aglaia for a wonderful experience, and if I have to return to your part of the county you'll see me again. Tish O'Connor, Monroe Township, New Jersey

We booked our reseveration at the Northfield Inn one year ago to ensure a nearby place to our son's college graduation. We could not be any more pleased with our stay. We were welcomed with open arms and kindness. We felt at home but with all trimmings. The daily breakfasts not only brought delicious food but great conversation with Aglaia and staff and also with other guests. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Lots of hot water!! We were offered wine, coffee, tea and home made snacks throughout the day. It was a great experience for our family and would recommend to anyone who needs to get away for some quiet relaxing rest in the green mountains of Vermont!! Jack and Kim Rindt, Roosevelt, NJ

The inn was beautiful, the view breathtaking! All this while the weather was cold and nothing was green! The proprietor, though, was just the final touch! Great hostess, wonderful cook, very charming!

My cousin and I went skiing up in Vermont and stayed at the Northfield Inn. We were given a choice of rooms, one more beautiful than the next. Agalia made us feel so welcome, we felt like it was our own home. Breakfast, of course, was outstanding!

the best B&B I've ever been. more than great accommodation. The breakfast is above and beyond any expectation I had!

We got to pick our room. There were plenty of rooms to just sit in and read/work. There were outdoor sitting venues that provided awesome views and peace, which we were unable to take advantage of because of the weather. There was internet access. There were snacks (healthy, homemade, and those for kids) available throughout the day, with wine available in the evening (self-serve). Beautiful view from dining room! Breakfast was superb and available when we wanted. Definitely a homey, friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

We visited the Northfield Inn August 2/08 and was welcomed by our host Aglaia. She was gracious, funny and a real delight. The Inn was cosy, yet roomy. The views are spectacular from the dining room window. The breakfast was delicious. I would return to this Inn and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a wonderful Inn experience.

Attentions to details is what one senses when staying at the Northfield Inn. Our hostess, Aglaia, thought of everything to make the experience top-shelf. Victorian furnishings, modern plumbing, exquisite cuisine, warm hostess contributed to a memorable B&B experience!
