“Personality Plus!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Having a Bed & Breakfast as my 'home' for the week was made even more perfect by the fantastic personality of Donna Taylor and her Gazebo Inn. The Inn is charming and truly feels like home. Once Donna opened the door with her cheery welcome, took us to our very comfortable rooms, and then provided us with her fabulous breakfasts and special treats during the day, an experience was in the making! We were able to become better acquainted with one another as well as with Brandon, VT due to the ease of conversation here. It's easy to book a night or more at a B&B, but being a guest at the Gazebo Inn with Donna as your hostess makes this a most memorable occasion!

Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your time at The Gazebo Inn and in particular the Cinnamon Silk Suite. BTW exploring the various gardens with you was a delight. I hope the plants you took with you flourish. Having return guests is always welcome. Thank you for your 2nd visit. Hope to see you again in the future.

Donna greeted us with a wide smile and we were taken to our room. She was very friendly and the breakfast was a very tasty orange French toast. Very nice! We had great breakfast conversation with Donna and some of the other guests. Overall a great stay and an excellent recommendation by Donna to have dinner at the café Provence in town. We walked to it and had a great evening there (separate review). Thanks again Donna, and by now I hope you have your keys back. Oops, left them in my pocket and mailed them back when I got home.

Room Tip: We had Cinnamon room in the front. Very nice room with AC. The trucks coming around the corner can b...

It is always good to have guests that immediately feel comfortable around our large, family-style dining room table that
can fit 10. Meeting and greeting other travelers is always fun. We are located on the main street in Brandon which
vehicular traffic does use. I look forward to a future visit if you again decide to attend The Country Owl Studio's
learning vacation.

My family took a biking trip last week in the Champlain Valley. We couldn't have been luckier than to have Donna Taylor's Gazebo Inn be our last stop. Our teenage daughter wasn't feeling well when we arrived early, and Donna immediately helped make her comfortable. The place is warm, clean, and comfortable and Donna makes you feel very welcome. She even sent us off with fresh baked muffins for the car ride as we left the next day. Highly recommended.

It was a joy to host your family. Everyone was gracious and so polite -- as well as having a great sense of humor. I loved
learning about Brazil and your present life on the West Coast. Taking a cycling trip is a big adventure for a family and was
glad that Country Inns Along the Trail booked you here at our family-friendly historic B&B. Please come again!

It was a wonderful adventure with three friends to attend art class at, The Country Owl Studio. Donna Taylor welcomed us at The Gazebo Inn like we were old friends. Each morning we sat at a beautiful table and served a delicious breakfast before our long day. Donna always sent us to class with baked treats to share and enjoy. Our evenings were comfortable and filled with scrumptious snacks and recommendations to participate in community activities. We were fortunate to attend THE GREAT BRANDON AUCTION and contribute to this charming community. We enjoyed our visit at the Gazebo Inn and we appreciated the good care and interest from the proprietor, Donna Taylor.

It is always a delight to host students who are attending The Country Owl Studio courses. Without fail they are talented,
interesting guests who are always gracious and share their myriad interests. Often these adult students want to participate in the very fabric of everyday Brandon life. This year some were able to attend The Great Brandon Auction, buying raffle tickets, refreshments, and even items that were being auctioned off. One of the items was the child's drawing of the action at the Auction that is resold yearly. In our library there it hangs with thoughtful comments attached to the back for the next owner to read. What nicer guests could an innkeeper want!

After a three year absence, we were once again able to stay at the Gazebo Inn. Once again, Donna has been busy upgrading the outdoor areas and the results are lovely!

Indoors, the ambiance and food are as good as ever. Staying with Donna is such a relaxing experience. We can't let it be so long next time!

Room Tip: All rooms are inviting and comfortable. Ask which ones have an extra bed!

Thank you for your kind words. I recall fondly your group's last visit and this one as a most fun time. The talents that you all bring to Dolores Funari's traditional arts school always amaze me. Conversations around breakfast and afternoon refreshments time fascinate me. Please come again and continue to enjoy our cozy home and extensive gardens while sharing your latest interest, including your national Questers Club..

We arrived at The Gazebo Inn after three days of biking the Champlain Valley. Donna was very welcoming as we arrived, made sure we were all set for our much anticipated showers, and after wards provided a plate of chocolates, cheese slices and cookies. So nice to have! That evening she changed our dinner reservations as we were late in arriving, and gave us access to the locked doors. Breakfast the next morning was tailored to our likes, and after biking one last time, Donna had cold watermelon slices and a shower once again! She was totally pampering us! Will surely come back!

Room Tip: Rooms are very comfortable, although a small inn and only 5 units.

Thank you for visiting our B&B as part of your Country Inns Along the Trail itinerary. I'm glad you enjoyed staying here and partaking of our sumptuous -- but healthy -- Vermont breakfast as you extended your trip by taking another day's ride before returning home. I know this is not your first trip with Brandon's own bike tour operator Seth Hopkins. It would be great to see and your friend again next year!

My husband and I stayed at The Gazebo at the beginning of an inn-to-inn biking trip. Donna was helpful in so many ways: She greeted us with fabulous cookies when we arrived, and then sent us off with freshly baked, delicious muffins for our first morning of biking. She tailored breakfast time to our schedule and served wonderful granola, fruit, and peach pancakes. She let us keep our car in her lot for three days while we biked, and then welcomed us back on our last day in Vermont--with free use of her bathroom to change out of our sweaty biking clothes before we headed home.

In short, Donna made us feel immediately welcomed and cared for. She's also clearly delighted to be running her inn and introducing guests to all that Brandon has to offer.

We'd highly recommend staying at The Gazebo!

My very great pleasure to host you on your initial evening of an extensive Country Inns Along the Trail Itinerary. Your conversations about past biking tours were fascinating. You certainly were undaunted on this tour of our Green Mountain state with all the ups & downs of both the topography and the weather. I was please to open our doors to you as got set to return home to the Boston area all refreshed and invigorated. Come again!
