We had a really great stay in beautiful surroundings. Our hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts were delicious. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Arrive as patrons, Depart as friends

Innkeepers Mike and Julie are two of the nicest people you can meet! This was my wife and I's first adventure at a bed and breakfast and it was awesome. Being "younger" (I, 31 and my wife, 27) we always thought of a B&B as something for older people. Our naive-ness made us think of B&Bs as forced social community with a shared bathroom. Boy were we wrong here. Not only did we have our own bathroom, but we enjoyed the brief conversations we had with fellow patrons and never felt obligated to be social. We've stayed at all different hotels and they all paled in comparison to the service we at Golden Stage. Mike and Julie truly care about their guests and ensure all their needs are met. Whether you need activity suggestions, dinner reservations, or just want to learn about beekeeping Mike and Julie are available to help. The afternoon soup, hot cider, and cookies are alone worth the trip. And the breakfast! Simple, healthy, satisfying, and full of flavor. We stayed in the Otis room and it was the quintessential New England farmhouse room. The newly refinished wide-plank wood floors were spectacular! The gas fireplace keeps you nice and toasty adding great ambiance. The private bathroom rivaled an upscale hotel. Radiant heated tile floors, air jetted tub, vessel bathroom sink. Our room offered great privacy, we never heard a peep from the patrons in neighboring rooms. The formal sitting room on the first floor was inviting and a cozy place to just sit, hang out, play a board game, or drink a glass of wine. The whole house/facility was immaculately clean. Seriously, sterile clean. It is very impressive. You can tell Mike and Julie have a high degree of pride in their B&B. In total our stay was excellent. I can't find one thing I would improve or wish was different. I highly recommend you stay with Mike and Julie. My wife and I will definitely be back. 5 Stars across the board. If this is your first inn/B&B experience, this is the place to do it!


Fantastic hospitality!

5 on December 27, 2015

We spent two nights here over Christmas and it was truly a great stay. We researched a lot of places in the area and are very pleased we chose Golden Stage. There are many things that elevate this B&B to a 5-star rating. The breakfasts (one of the deciding factors in selecting Golden Stage) were exquisite. The attention to detail throughout the Inn and during the stay was top notch. Also, and most importantly, the aforementioned hospitality was exceptional and consistent, exceeding our high expectations. We felt right at home as if we were spending time with our family. We will definitely without a doubt return to Golden Stage Inn. On a side note, I went snowboarding nearby at Okemo on Christmas Day. While the weather was over 50 degrees the snowmaking was done very well on the trails that were open. Okemo was very close and convenient and the snowboarding was great.

Innkeeper Response
Another "thank you!" ...both for staying with us, and for taking the time to leave such a great review. Looking forward to getting a bunch of snow so we can welcome you back here!


A wonderful stay with the best hosts

5 on October 09, 2015

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Golden Stage during our 'leaf peeping' trip to VT. Though a bit away from all the 'action' in Proctorsville, the inn is ideal for those who are looking to enjoy the true VT experience. We easily drove across the state for our leaves, and came back each evening to a nice quiet room. Breakfasts are gourmet and will leave you not needing lunch. The grounds are nice to stroll and meet Puck, a very friendly chicken, who will eat from your hand. Nelly made us feel right at home, and made us miss our 4-legged friend a bit less.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your great comments! (Nelly's always getting compliments online, but Puck will be so flattered that she made it into a review!) Really, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Being one step removed from the action, yet an easy drive to anything you want to do, is something we take great pleasure in. So glad it worked well for you too!


A beautiful welcoming place to stay

We loved this B & B. Julie and Mike were perfect hosts, very homey and we will be back! Nice to find out there was a connection to an author I read when I was younger!


Another great stay at a great B&B

5 on April 13, 2015

This was my families third stay at the Golden Stage Inn and we will continue coming back when any time we visit Vermont. Mike and Julie run an amazing B&B and always make us feel welcome and taken care of. The rooms are clean and well accommodated (especially the two newly renovated rooms), the breakfasts are incredible, and the bottomless jar of home-made cookies are always a great treat. Highly recommend staying at the Golden Stage Inn if you are in the area.


Wonderful weekend break

We spent one night on a weekend in this wonderful, charming place. It was just amazing.


My Favorite B&B

5 on August 07, 2014

I have been to many B&B's but I LOVE this B&B and try to stay there any change I get! Mike & Julie have truly set the bar so high that I am never as satisfied when I stay at other B&B's. They are great people to chat with...they really make you feel at home. I am so big on food and they are so generous and accommodating with their breakfast, afternoon tea treats and night-time dessert. They have the softest sheets ever, I even ordered sheets from them for my own home! Julie is a beekeeper and my friends and I wipe out her honey stock any chance we get! They have the cutest sheep ever, Shadow and Athena...make sure you stop by to say hi and feed them during your stay!


Lovely VT Weekend Gettaway!

5 on March 10, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our cozy stay here recently. We received a friendly reception and were spoiled with homemade treats like ginger cookies and fragrant hot cider. We were charmed by the stories of the on-site bee-keeping. The room was clean and quaint. We slept soundly and woke up to a yummy breakfast of coffee cake, berries and ham-gruyere-apple open-face sandwiches. It is also an ideal location to Okemo. I would definitely visit again and/or send a loved one a gift card to relax at this B&B.
