We recently returned from a week long visit to Vermont and had a chance to stay at the Gazebo Inn in Brandon, VT. The inn was very nice and it is obviously lovingly and meticulously maintained by the innkeeper, Donna Taylor. She greeted us when we arrived with some snacks she had just made and two big glasses of lemonade, which were welcomed after several hours of strenuous hiking. Our room was very charming and spacious with clear attention to detail. I was impressed with the bathroom which had been recently renovated. But the whole place overall was in great shape and was charming and comfortable.
We had dinner in Brandon which was only a short walk down the road from the inn. When we got back we had a long chat with Donna about the history of the inn and about the town. In the morning, Donna made a delicious breakfast for us and packed a terrific lunch full of sandwiches, snacks, and fruit. After getting some directions and advice (we went to hike Blueberry Hill which was beautiful) we were off. Gazebo Inn was a great place to visit and we really enjoyed our time there.
