Very Nice Inn!

4.8 on September 29, 2016

This is a very nice small inn. We stayed two nights during the week and it was very quiet. Bob was a very gracious host and prepared an outstanding breakfast while pinch hitting for Allen who was hospitalized at the time. Rooms were very clean and there was a nice common area with lots of books and freshly baked cookies and coffee. Only recommendation would be to upgrade the televisions. We would definitely stay here again!


We will be back

Our room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was to die for! Great value.


Affordable B&B

4.4 on September 09, 2016

The rooms were smaller than a normal hotel room, but were nicely furnished!


Awesome

4.8 on August 27, 2016

We were looking for a place to stay while we were dropping our son off at Norwich Universty. What an awesome place with a very great staff, great food and hospitality in a gorgeous location. Definitely will be back.


Can't wait to come back!

4.6 on August 17, 2016

Arrived earlier than expected and although staff were busy left our key and receipt at the front desk for our room which was already prepared. Owners have their cell #s posted if you need anything rather than trying to track someone down. Cookies & coffee were great. Breakfast included in room price - absolutely outstanding meal. Gorgeous and peaceful property. Impressive library and very comfortable fireplace room. Other guests were enjoyable to meet and chat with


August night at White Horse Inn

4.0 on August 16, 2016

The breakfast provided with room was wonderful. It was much nicer than the continental breakfasts served at many hotels. It was obvious that a lot of time and care had gone into the preparation.


Fantastic Place

Enchanting Weekend in Vermont

5 on July 09, 2016

We had a delightful, and relaxing weekend at the White Horse Inn. Bob and Allen have created a magical Inn in the mountains with a great attention to detail. Breakfast was amazing - from gourmet dishes to wonderful coffees. We particularly enjoyed spending time in the Fireplace Room, a great room, with a nice library, 24-hour coffee and tea and fresh-baked cookies. Thank you Bob and Allen. We will be visiting often.
