Lovely stay in Vermont

4.8 on February 17, 2017

My husband and I had a great visit to the Crisanver House in Shrewsbury, VT. The inn is a bit off the main path. Perfect for rest and relation. Breakfast and dinner were both great!

Amazing place, wonderful hosts

4.8 on September 27, 2012

We spent in this B&B 3 nights in late August, 2012. We had found the place on-line and liked the pictures of the location; outdoors pool; comments of other reviewers. What we saw when we actually arrived there exceeded all expectations... Below is a short list of our impressions. 1. The outside area is huge, and is beautifully maintained. Reminds of a park belonging to British Royalty 2. Everything inside is expensive and tasteful - rooms, renovation, furniture, dishesh, etc. You could tell that this B&B is a labor of love more than a business enterprise 3. The hosts are truly wonderful. We took great pleasure taking to Carol, eating her breafast and dinner (food quality is of a trained chef) and sipping Michael's home-made limoncello. The service lady was also very friendly and nice 4. The place provides unparalleled tranquility. We were lucky: during our stay only 2-3 rooms were taken (out of 9), and we felt almost alone in this great mansion. We watched sun-set from the porch; chilled out near the pool; had a dinner 5. B&B has its own hiking trail in great condition; we took this trail two days in row, and loved it. Ask Carol for local restaurant recommendations, and a lake some 20 minites away from the B&B.

Once a year at Crisanver House

5 on September 21, 2007

We stay at the Crisanver House once a year on our annivesary weekend. This will be our 10th year. This bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations and it just gets better every year. Mike and Carole have incorporated a dinner meal. Needless to say, Carole is quite the cook, serving delicious breads, salads and entrees. Did I mention the maple pecan scones!!!!! They are my favorite!!! We will continue to visit this wonderful B&B for many years to come!!!

Herrick recently received a new personality and we call it Country Lux.
