Grunberg Haus Bed & Breakfast and Cabins

94 Pine Street Route 100 S, Waterbury, VT 05676 USA (Show map)


This picture-postcard Austrian chalet is open year around and is perched on a quiet hillside in the Green Mountains of north central Vermont ... mid-way between the year around resorts of Stowe and Sugarbush (both about 20 minutes drive), and near Montpelier (15 minutes) and Burlington / Lake Champlain (40 minutes). Romantic guestrooms open onto a balcony. Three cabins (each with queen bed, bathroom, sitting area, woodstove and deck) are tucked away along trails up in the forest. In the inn, a large stone fireplace and wood stove in the self-serve BYOB pub are favorite gathering places. Hike or snowshoe 40 acres of trails in the forest behind the inn. Nearby activities include world class downhill skiing, hiking, golf, fishing, boating, bicycling, soaring, canoeing, antiquing, spectacular autumn leaf viewing, outlet shopping, and touring Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory, Cabot Cheese outlet, Lake Champlain Chocolates store, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, glass blowing studios, craft and art galleries, antique stores, and more.

I stayed there for 4 nights last January to ski and visit my daughter at UVM. We had a great night's sleep and wonderful breakfasts. The Innkeepers let me stay in an adjoining room when my daughters friend joined us to ski, gratis... It was also very convenient to Sugarbush and Stowe. I bought our passes for Sugarbush directly at the B and B. I'll be back, hopefully in the next month. Thanks. Scott

Cute and rustic, just like the area

Great location, cute and quaint B&B. Owners are very nice and helpful. It's a true B&B with areas shared (they have a game room) but I that is what I expected. Very good value and in a great location.

Wonderful retreat in a forest setting

We made the most of our 1 night stay, enjoying cocoa & popcorn by the fire in the common room. Such a lovely quiet setting with a spacious room & bath. Our hosts provided all needed area info, even a self-guided tour to local bridges & waterfalls. Our stay was capped by a tasty breakfast looking out over a wooded area with birds at the feeders. Highly recommend, a peaceful delight!

Must Return.

We only stayed two nights as this lovely, fun chalet-style B & B. The location in the Vermont woods is inspiring. We did not have time to explore the grounds but want to go back and check out the trails. The rooms are charmingly decorated with quilts and Alpine style painted furniture (at least in our room). Linda and Jeff prepare a great breakfast serving specialities from Vermont. I want to go back in the winter and check out the fireplace in the ski season. Just terrific!

Grunberg Haus has a wonderful charm. The service is excellent, warm, and they make you feel right at home. The rooms are simple and nastalgic. I would come back again!

Cozy, old-fashioned ski lodge with great food

We've stayed here twice; once in the fall with our dog (they allow dogs in the separate cabin rooms on the hillside in summer & fall) and once in the winter with our two sons in the main inn for a ski trip. Both times, we enjoyed our stay--everything was super clean, the innkeepers were extremely helpful, and didn't mind that we had to arrive late after driving six hours from New York. There is a small network of hiking trails on the property--good for a short x-c ski or snowshoeing. Lots of charm. Has good wi-fi; no TV, rooms are small, but close to good restaurants & exactly half way between Sugarbush and Stowe. Excellent value.

A great place

Found this inn online and decided to stay there with my husband for our 6th wedding anniversary, as we would be spending time in Waterbury and Burlington. What a great place to stay! The inn was adorable, the room was clean and cozy, the homemade breakfasts daily were yummy, and it was very relaxing to spend the nights in front of the fireplace. Jeff & Linda were great innkeepers; very friendly and knowledgeable about the area as well. Grunberg Haus is a definite repeat vacation stay!

This is a Disgusting Place!

From the moment I stepped in to this B&B I knew I had made a mistake by not paying attention to some of the earlier reviews I had read online. Their website pictures are either from earlier ownership or the current owners are so burned out and broke they haven't done anything to the place for some time. The owner Jeff was like an automaton who wanted to give us his spiel and then get back to whatever he had that needed more attention. There was no smile, no "welcome" or any gesture of . We had booked a cabin and when we entered, I immediately noticed the moldy smell in the room, which Jeff explained by saying that it had gotten cold the night before so trey had closed the windows. I proceeded to open them and put in screens while he stood there talking about how to operate the wood stove. Never offered to assist. The bed cover looked like it hadn't been washed in weeks. The bathroom smelled of urine so we took of the cover and put it in a corner, sprayed the room with freshener, turned on the fan and went out for dinner hoping that it would be better when we got back. No such luck! Next morning we were resolved to leave since I woke up with a sinus headache - no doubt due to the mold in the room. I showered, toweled off with another moldy linen and went down. I informed Linda that we were leaving a day earlier than planned. I checked out only to find that she had charged for an extra night. When I asked why, her response was" You read the contract!" Jeff and Linda have no idea what Vermont is all about despite their being there for 12 years. I lived in Vermont for 11 years and these people are a disgrace to a community that is known for its welcoming friendliness and warmth. This was, unfortunately, a terrible ending to one of the best vacations I have ever taken. Don't ruin yours!

Had a great time!

I just loved staying here. Linda, the female half of the couple running the place, was delightful and her breakfasts were simple and tasty. The rooms were charming and gave the impression of being outside while inside. The hosts stay at their own home, detached from the guest rooms, so there was a feeling of privacy. Quaint and perfect. Would totally return.
