I just had the unfortunate opportunity to stay at this B&B. We were placed in the Arbor View room which had the appearance of a trailer overstuffed w/ furniture. Very cheap feeling construction including a beam stretching the room trying to give the feel of a timber frame building (I assume), but it was just so out of place it looked ridiculous. The toilet was cracked and stained and there was enough mildew on the shower that I would not use it.
Breakfast the next morning was not much better. The water was the worst tasting I have ever drank. It's possible that this is what water in Arlington, VT tastes like, but water is not supposed to have a taste, and for $330/night, one would think this place could find a solution. Burned toast and muffins, slightly cold and soggy potatoes, and undercooked egged rounded out the breakfast. Yum.
My one compliment and the only thing saving the Arlington Inn from a rating of "Terrible" would be the staff. In out short 12 hours there, we had 3 brief encounters with employees, but all were very friendly and welcoming.
With what has to be hundreds of options for B&Bs along route 7, my advice would be to skip the Arlington Inn and stay elsewhere.
