“location is everything”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2007

well, i guess the old adage location, location, location applies to this inn. I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that the inkeepers/owners were not very friendly or helpful. They seemed burnt out. Instead of being gracious and appreciative that we plunked our money at their inn, it was as if they were put off by the exta work that another customer brought to them. The air conditioner was the loudest unit I have ever heard. I had to sleep with a pillow over my head to drown out the noise. Not to mention the room never did reach a comfortable temperature. Other than these issues, the inn is a very nice building. Too bad the owners can not appreciate the value of the dollar their customers bring to them. There are plenty of places to stay in Chester, in case they forgot this!!!

I've always thought that B&Bs were known for their hospitality, but that was certainly not the case at the Fullerton Inn. The owners and the staff were not friendly at all. They almost acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us stay at their Inn. When we checked in (my friends and I had two rooms), we asked if they were going to light the fireplace because it was raining and cold. He said that it wasn't cold enough. We're from Texas and it was cold to us!! We drove to a B&B in Grafton for dinner and they had two fireplaces going as did other places in town. The owner didn't introduce himself and he didn't even ask us how our trip was going or if there was anything we needed. There isn't an elevator in the B&B, so we had to lug our suitcases up the stairs ourselves. Instead of offering to help, Nancy (I assume she was the owner) very sullenly asked if we needed help. At that point, I didn't want to inconvenience her. They didn't tell us about the amenities at the Inn or what time dinner was served or what there was to do in Chester - absolutley no help whatsoever!! My friends' room was cold and when they told the owner, he told them to be sure the window was closed. Duh!!! It never really warmed up because he said if they turned up the heat, the dining room would get too hot. Thanks for nothing!! When we checked out, we weren't asked how we enjoyed our stay or if everything was okay. We're not used to people being so rude. I would suggest to the owners that if they don't enjoy being around people and being hospitable, they need to find another job!! I would not recommend this Inn to anyone.

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — Everything but especially the coldness and unfriendliness of the owners and staff.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't stay here if you expect any service!

We have visited the Fullerton Inn numerous times and we always look forward to returning again. The atmosphere is quintessential Vermont with fine food, comfortable rooms and innkeepers who aim to please. It’s a great location for individuals and groups.
