Sunsets over Pond Mountain flood the cottage brilliantly through large western-facing windows situated in the slim pillars of the pines that provide peace and tranquility and fresh air which is uniquely Vermont.

Mountain View lives up to its name...Awesome mountain view

5 on October 12, 2013

Mountain View was the perfect spot for our first visit to Vermont. The apartment was everything we could have asked for. The view was just breathtaking; God's handiwork was so amazing. The food was delicious; so many wonderful choices. Most of all, Lori and Gary are the best innkeepers ever; hospitality abounded. I cannot imagine going to Vermont and not staying at the inn. Thanks for our cherished memories.

A friend and I stayed for two great nights. The hosts are very welcoming, Lori is a great cook, and the place is super clean and quiet. I would recommend them to anyone.

My Dream Vermont B&B

5 on July 28, 2013

After years of looking we finally found it -- a VT B&B that's way off the beaten track with dropdead views, tasteful decor in spacious apartment, great cooking, and hosts who graciously converse as much or as little as suits your mood. We 'll be going back as soon as we have an opportunity.

Comfortable, homey getaway

We found this place when we searched for dog-friendly accommodations. Lori and Gary have a very smart arrangement: two facilities that are distinct from the main house allow dogs, but the main house does not - so both dog owners and those with pet allergies can be accommodated. We rented the apartment (kitchen, dining/living room, bed and bath) and found it spacious and well-appointed (wish we had those appliances at home!). Bed very comfortable. Lori's breakfasts were excellent - my partner has very high standards for food and Lori easily met them! Both Gary and Lori were welcoming, friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed exploring the beautiful countryside. We'll be back!

We did not want to go back home.

My husband and I recently spent three nights in the cozy cottage. It was so comfortable and enjoyable. The beds are so very habit forming. I haven't slept that good in a long time. Lori and Gary made us feel like family. Lori's breakfasts were fantastic. We loved our stay so much we have already booked it again for the Fall.

Outstanding views and fantastic innkeepers. This is the way a vacation should be. Great job, Gary and Lori. We will be back

Over the top breakfast. They really catered to our needs. So clean and comfy. A romantic, warm and cozy place. What a great find!

Great Inn, Friendly Hosts and Wonderful Food!!!!

My wife and mother were visiting Wells, VT to see my niece who had had a baby boy a few months earlier and we stayed at the Mountain View bed & Breakfast. I am so glad we did! First off, we rented the barn cottage which was perfect for us because it had two bedrooms. It also has a huge living/dining room, fully applianced kicthen and large bathroom so we had more than enough room to strecth out and relax. And the kitchen was stocked with complimentary coffee, tea and snacks! Lori and Gary are excellent innkeepers who make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. They are both from Florida and they can add a Southern touch to the daily breakfasts if you desire. The cheese grits I had were fabulous. But they also nailed the local flavors as well as the individually prepared breakfasts were delicious both days we were there. And the service they gave to each guest was above and beyond anything we had seen at a B&B. The inn itself is beautiful and the view from the decks is amazing. There is a great view of the mountains across the way - hence the name - and the surrounding woodlands. We did not stay in the inn itself, we were in the cottage down the hill, but the guests we spoke to who did also raved about their rooms. Overall, you cannot beat the quality of the inn, the service of the innkeepers and the overall value.

Perfect Retreat

Having spend years on the lake, this was a pleasant surprise hidden in the mountains. Everything and more than enough space for an extended stay, it was unfortunate that we could only spend one night. Much more than one would expect from a bed and breakfast. Gary and Lori were friendly, interesting and genuinely welcoming . Breakfast was incredible and I'm sure to visit again.

Excellent B&B! The barn cottage is a wonderful cozy retreat!

Stayed for a girls weekend and had a great time! Lori & gary are great innkeepers. The cottage was exactly as the pictures showed. Very clean and cozy. The breakfast each morning was restaurant quality. Will definitely be going back.

Home Away From Home

5 on July 28, 2012

We stayed 2 nights this past week in the Barn. Talk about cozy and homey, you have it the minute you walk in. Nice, clean, and comfortable with all the amenities and more. Wifi, washer, dryer, full kitchen, use of BBQ and hot tub, and amazing innkeepers. Lori & Gary are fantastically nice, gracious, and above all, great cooks! Lori's homemade breads and her breakfasts made with local produce are delicious. Nearby are trails to hike, Lake St. Catherine to kayak, swim, and fish. Nearby towns have good delis, taverns, etc. What a gem we have found. Will be back! -From Alexandria, VA
