Northfield Inn

228 Highland Avenue , Northfield, VT 05663 USA (Show map)


Perhaps the most elegant and peaceful Vermont Inn we have seen! This historic mansion,located just south of Montpelier, has been beautifully restored to its original Victorian elegance. Once occupied by a princess, it is tastefully decorated with period furnishings, orientals, antiques, brass and carved wood beds with luxurious Eurpoean down bedding and private baths. We were served a unforgetable, multi-course gourmet breakfast, including fresh fruit, homemade hot granola, and then a main course. All this at a table aglow with interesting conversation, International guests, and a breathtaking view of the Green Mountains. After breakfast we strolled to the woodland koi pond, hiked through mountain trails, and into town with its five covered bridges. An experience you will always remember!

Northfield, Vermont's hidden treasure

5 on August 04, 2013

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

Wonderful facility, even better hospitality

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.

Norwich Family Weekend

4.4 on October 21, 2010

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.

A Disappointment

4.0 on July 13, 2010

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.

Relaxing weekend getaway in the Green Mountains

4.6 on June 21, 2010

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.

Staying at the Northfield

4.0 on June 18, 2010

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!

Northfield Inn - quiet & peaceful

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.

Great Place in a Quaint Town

About the innkeepers

One of this Inn's main attractions is its wonderful hostess. Aglaia (pronounced UH-GLAY-UH)has travelled the world, is a gourmet cook, and a gracious hostess. She bought the Inn years ago, and lovingly restored it to its original grandour. She will regale you with stories of years of interesting guests, and tempt your palette with lavish breakfasts. You will find yourself with one more person on your Christmas Card list, I assure you!
