new friends and adventures

Our stay at Grunberg Haus was picture perfect, pulled straight from a happily-ever-after fairytale. Lia and Duane - official owners only mere weeks! - were wonderful attentive hosts (from post-reservation email conversations and cheerful smiles at check-in to cabin cleanliness and vegan accommodations). We were grateful for their insights on what to check out in the area - we picked blueberries at Hartshorn's Farm just down the road, had dinner in Montpelier, and swam in Warren Falls. Lia is a culinary artist (art-eest!) - breakfast was divine (can't go wrong with a cookbook laden with recipes for items such as cream cheese and raspberry jam stuffed french toast and maple pecan cake!) We can't wait to go back and our only regret is that we had to leave!


Vermont experience

5 on July 17, 2016

We booked last minute not knowing there was a change in ownership happening. The new owners made the exchange flawless wouldn't have know if we weren't told. The new owners are very down to earth, charming and very excited to make the new adventure in their lives an adventure for their guests as well. We are looking forward to booking a stay this winter for a ski trip. Amazing time would recommend!!

We called last minute for a room and we were able to book the last room available. They were going through an owner change but you would never have known as they made it very seem less. They new owners are very pleasant to talk to and very excited for their new adventure in life. We definitely would recommend a stay here and are hoping to make it back for a ski trip this year.

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

5 on September 23, 2013

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!


Relaxation!

Wonderful Home taking you back in time

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

4.6 on January 15, 2013

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.
