Built in 1854, and on the National Register of Historic Places, this elegant country home is the epitome of comfort and gracious hospitality. The Inn is decorated with period antiques and is centrally located between Quechee and Woodstock, and just minutes from all seasonal activities and fine dining. You'll find six gorgeous guest rooms, four of which have fireplaces/stove, all of which have private baths. For your comfort, all guest rooms are air-conditioned. After a comfortable and restful night, you'll be served a sumptuous and healthy gourmet breakfast, including Barbara's own applebutter! Relax by the fireplace in the Front Parlor with a cup of tea and a book from our extensive library, or pick out a tune on the Mason & Hamlin grand piano in the Music Room. Or, in summer, take your complimentary afternoon tea and freshly baked refreshments to the porch overlooking the Inn's expansive private lawn and gardens. Start your day with a run or leisurely stroll along the Ottauquechee River over the Taftsville Covered Bridge. Then, after breakfast, visit with Bob and Mary Fraser in their antique shop, or chat with Charlie Wilson as you browse his best-of-Vermont-stocked Taftsville Country Store. However you choose to spend your time at the Applebutter Inn, you are sure to return home refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated.

A comfortable and delightful stay - Barbara and Michael were gracious hosts (and excellent cooks). Very accommodating to dietary needs (kindly offered vegetarian options), and were an absolute pleasure to talk with. Beautiful home and decorated nicely for the holidays! Would highly recommend this inn and will stay there again.

Rented entire inn!

Our group of 11 had the most fantastic time during our 2 night stay. We went up to run the covered bridges 1/2 marathon. Barbara & Michael could not have been nicer with our crazy bunch. They went out of their way to serve us breakfast rather late (after the race) which was amazing! Barabra is an amazing baker. Ginger cookies, beautiful muffins & scones kept us all wanting more! The entire home is so warm & wlcoming. A must place to visit! Thanks again from the Miami clan.

great b & b

Perfection in a B&B

Everything was perfect: cozy bed with feather-soft comforter, reading before the fire in a common room, a breakfast that was beyond gourmet, and our helpful and welcoming hosts!

Above and beyond
