My wife and I traveled to Vermont for our 36th wedding anniversary. After searching the web we decided on the Readmore. It was a fantastic choice. Dorothy met us at the front door and gave us the grand tour. Dorothy offered us tea in the Library. Served out of silver tea pots and with a roaring fire in the fireplace, light snow falling outside it made us feel so relaxed. We stayed in the Garden Room. A wonderful room. Large very comfortable queen bed, table with chairs and a sofa. And a wood burning fireplace! The bathroom was a surprise. It was very modern with a large oversized whirlpool tub. Spa care products were included. After a great nights sleep we went to breakfast. Stuart was already there offering us coffee and juice. There was a printed menu but Dorothy came out to explain how it was to be prepared. The first course was grapefruit with brandied cherry. Then came out a wonderful frittata with vegetables. Accompanying it was an oven baked mashed potato. The slab bacon soaked in maple syrup was my personal favorite! A very tasty toast added to the fantastic breakfast. Although we had to leave that morning we inquired about extending another night but there was no room at the Inn. No problem. We will be back. A wonderful stay, gracious hosts in a beautiful and comfortable Inn.

Wonderful home and hosts. Porch needed cleaning and yard and gardens needed a lot of work.

What a wonderful experience! The Inn is steeped in history and beautiful yet you are provided all the modern conveniences. Dorothy and Stewart are just wonderful and the food is so delicious! They are wonderful hosts and willing to do anything to help make your stay one that you will remember for a long time and want to go back to as soon as possible. I am gluten intolerant and they provided gluten free meals for me. I can't say enough about them and their wonderful inn. I have not slept that well in years!

My husband and I chose this B&B on a whim while on a spur of the moment getaway for our 5th anniversary. Let me say we were not dissappointed. We called after 6 that evening for a reservation and they were more than pleasant. After we stopped and had dinner and finally headed that way we realized we wouldnt' be there until almost 10pm. We called to let them know and it wasn't a problem at all. We stayed in the Garden Room and wow was it beautiful. Every room in the house will amaze you. the attention to detail is amazing. And breakfast... wow what can I say here? It was out of this world. Oatmeal french toast with sharp cheddar cheese and eggs on top. It was an explosion of flavor. The grilled peaches OMG!! The potatoes and mushrooms Wow!! And of course the apple smoked bacon. Awesome. We hope to go back again sometime. Very highly recommended :)
