About

We are Vermont's only B&B to provide en suite a Two Person Jacuzzi, Steam Bath, Sauna, Hot Tub, Two Person Rain Shower, outside hot tub, 4 fireplaces and 5 rooms to a single guest party. Visitors to Vermont are fortunate to have a wide selection of lodging accommodations. If however you are looking for complete privacy then your selection is narrowed to those establishments that have only a single guest party at a time, of which there are very few. We are far more then a home renting a single room to guests. Our goal is to provide resort quality accommodations, amenities and breakfast meals, in a completely private environment. We offer a spacious 5 room suite with the bedroom containing a King size bed, gas fireplace, two person Jacuzzi, two person rain shower, steam bath, sauna, sub-floor radiant heat, sitting area, ceiling fan, refrigerator and microwave. The Sun room contains a gas fireplace, sleeper sofa, ceiling fans and views of the courtyard and stream. The living room contains a wood fireplace, sleeper sofa, large screen TV with cable, ceiling fans, sub-floor radiant heat and views out the large picture windows. The tower room contains a gas fireplace, sitting area and views in all 4 directions. The courtyard deck contains a two person hot tub, with seasonal views of the stream for the exclusive use of our single guest party. Explore and enjoy our 28 acres containing numerous gardens and garden sitting areas, walkways along the stream leading to the waterfalls and natural swimming hole. There are two decks for the exclusive use of our guests. The absolute privacy is perfect for honeymooners, anniversary celebrations and folks just looking to get away from it all. No matter if you are a single, couple, or family, you can enjoy the privacy and amenities offered by our B and B in a country setting, and hop in the car to reach many of Vermont's "Big City" activities or ski slopes in less then a half hour.

WOW...

5 on September 14, 2013

WOW! That sentiment pretty much sums up our recent stay at the Garden Tower Bed and Breakfast. You don’t have to be there long to recognize how many decades of TLC have been given to this property, inside and out. You simply have to experience it to believe what a value this place has to offer. Nestled in the rural hills of beautiful northern Vermont, David and Marie have carved out the most amazing abode you can imagine. We frequent B&Bs fairly often and we have never seen this caliber of amenities offered for such a price. Five floors of luxury. All set aside for you and you alone. Twenty eight acres that define the word “relax.” Your hosts are dedicated to extending privacy and they are sincerely committed to your satisfaction. They are always ready with recommendations for dinner, sightseeing or shopping. And there’s a lot to do in this neck of the big woods. Between Stowe and Burlington, we could have kept busy for weeks. But it’s the “kick back and relax” that we went away for, so while we did enjoy a beautiful afternoon in Stowe, and a fantastic anniversary dinner at “The Whip”, we elected to stay an extra day at the B&B because we just couldn't leave this place without taking more of it in. Speaking of taking more in. This is no continental breakfast served here. My wife and I have some food sensitivities and both Marie and David were on top of it. Seriously, they have developed a menu to please even the most particular, and it is likely you won’t be able to finish what they generously provide. They surely put the second B in Bed and Breakfast. We came away convinced that when the secret is out on this place, the Garden Tower Bed and Breakfast will be booked far in advance. Its accommodations and its serene and spacious beauty are just that unusual. We highly recommend it and we are eager to return.


Beautiful Oasis

Garden Tower B and B is more beautiful than I could have even imagined. We arrived on Friday after a long drive and were kindly greeted by David and Marie. The property is absolutely breath taking! There are beautiful gardens out front as well as a large patio and deck out back. There is privacy for miles which makes the stay even more romantic. The inside of the B&B is modern, clean, romantic, and every detail has been taken care of! In addition to the expected furniture, the bedroom offers a keurig, a fireplace, a mini fridge, and a wine cooler while the bathroom has a spa jacuzzi tub, a sauna, and the most amazing triple overhead shower! We found ourselves excited to return to our tower each night to unwind, relax, and enjoy the serene atmosphere. The breakfasts that David and Marie prepared were out of this world and they were more than happy to accommodate our needs and answer any questions that we had in regards to dining and activities. We will definitely be returning to the garden tower B&B! Thanks again David and Marie! Nikole and Neil


Delightfully romantic, peaceful, and relaxing getaway

5 on August 14, 2013

Garden Tower B&B is beautiful, romantic, clean, and comfortable – everything a B&B should be! From the reservation process to the end of our stay, we were very pleased with everything. I have a sensitivity to fragrances and had requested that the suite be as free from scent as possible and they were happy to accommodate. David and Marie make every effort to make their guests’ stay a memorable and enjoyable one. There were lots of little extra touches that made our stay delightful – such as fresh flowers on the dining room table, real whipped cream and fresh fruit served with breakfast, chocolate mint candies on the coffee table in the living room, candles next to the jetted spa tub, terry cloth robes, and an endless supply of towels. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and served fresh and on time. The grounds are beautiful and the sound of the brook in the back was so relaxing. My husband and I made use of the hot tub three days straight and loved it! We also loved that they thought to include the tower in the addition. It was so breathtaking to go up to the very top and stare at all the stars (that you can’t see when you live in the city or suburbs). You cannot find such amazing accommodations for such a reasonable price anywhere else. This B&B is one-of-a-kind and its design, atmosphere, amenities, and level of privacy are completely unmatched. David and Marie were such gracious hosts. They were able to suggest fantastic restaurants and stores and attractions nearby. After asking David where we could find maple syrup at a reasonable price, he went out of his way to pick it up for us at a local convenience store where he knew they had the best price. They are very devoted to their B&B and treat their guests very well. We are already planning a return trip!


Skiing Weekend with the Family

5 on March 11, 2013

The Garden Tower Bed and Breakfast was beautiful. David and Marie were wonderful friendly hosts. We stayed here with our adult children and the bed arrangements were fine. We loved the "spa treatments". We went from the hot tub, to the sauna, to the steam shower. Great after a strenuous day of skiing. This would also be a wonderful place to stay in the summer. The brook sits below the house. I can imagine the forest aromas and the soothing sound of the brook from the bedroom window. The tower was also a special place to relax and see the view. The location was ideal - about 20 minutes to Stowe and Sugarbush and not far from Burlington.


Perfect Winter Getaway

5 on December 30, 2012

We had a wonderful 3-night stay with Marie and David. If only we could have stayed longer. They went out of their way to make our visit as perfect as possible, even to the point of driving us to town to get dinner when our car was unable to make it down the snowy hill. Every detail was thought of in order to make our visit that much more memorable. The hot tub was a delight and the spa bathroom was to die for. It was also a treat to wake up to a delicious home cooked meal with local Vermont goodies . We look forward to many more return visits!
