“Nice Get aWay !”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We only live" down the road " but this was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary evening with excellent dinner, quiet room and romantic ambience. Room 15, has bucolic view of the village and beautiful oval deep tub. The included breakfast was the perfect ending to the stay..I chose the poached eggs florentine over English muffin....coffee was served with warm homemade blueberry scones. Now we have the occasion to recommend to others, often we don't get a chance to experience local hotels or BBs.

The staff of the hotel for a friend's wedding weekend were incredibly accommodating and friendly. The food was never a disappointment and the drinks were spot on. The community of Grafton was so crisp and peaceful. Sunday morning, we found ourselves standing in front of the hotel on the edge of the street with no passing cars enjoying the cool breeze overlooking the beautiful front porch of the Inn. Having the windows open all day and night in August was incredible. Only one issue of the stay was the noise the shower head created. However, understanding the historic age of the Inn, alongside the immaculate conditions and cleanliness, it was easy to overcome. Thanks for making the weekend a success!

A couple of friends held thier wedding at the Grafton Inn this August. It was wonderful. The inn rooms were clean and comfortable, the grounds and property were beautiful. Most importantly the staff at the Inn was incredibly friendly and helpful. I had an excellent stay and if I ever found myself in the area for any reason I would check there first as a place to stay.

I felt like I was in a world within a world. The people were so friendly, the food was amazing, and at the end I didn't want to leave. People actually sat on the porch with their complimentary cup of coffee and enjoyed just sitting. What a novel concept on vacation! The breakfast, which is included in the room charge, was out of this world. Anywhere else it would have been 30.00 minimum. And of course, the cheese. Highly recommend this to anyone going to the southern Vermont area. Convenient to everything, but really no need to venture out it you don't want to. Even the live singer at the converted barn pub was excellent. I think I'm in love. Did I mention the mattress.... OMG, amazing.

Room Tip: They are all quiet. We stayed in the cottage across the street from the main Inn, and there was some...

This was our second time at The Grafton Inn and once again we experienced a wonderful time. Dining experience was exceptional! The hotel is lovely and charming. Good size bedroom and bath accommodations. A pretty "hamlet" in the hills of Vermont. Looking forward to returning one day.

If you follow my reviews you will know that I'm not one to enjoy older hotels. This one isn't any different. Granted, they do a good job of making you feel comfortable, it was just something about this place... I couldn't sleep. There isn't a TV, the only entertainment is a radio, one that you could hook your ipod up to. They do have wifi, which did allow me to stream some video content from google hangouts, which was a plus.

I was in room 14, which had 3 windows looking out onto the town. The decoration in the room was nice.

The iron worked great for me, they dont have a large sized ironing board, so you will have to work with the tiny one.

They had a power strip available in the closet so I could plug in all of my devices which I love!

The people here in Grafton are excellent, down to earth, nice people.

There is a beautiful pond across the street that people can go swimming in.

There aren't any other hotels in the area, so you dont have any other choice but to stay here. Its not a bad choice, it just may not be for everyone.

My husband and I got married at the Grafton Inn on April 20, 2013 and could not have been happier with our venue choice. The Grafton Inn is such a special place, complete with a top notch staff which made our wedding planning, and actual wedding such a dream. Angela is the most organized, personable, responsive, flexible, and easy-going event coordinator I've ever worked with. She took care of every last detail and was often on top of items well before they even occurred to us. Every other member of the staff, from Steven at the front desk to Dorothy and all of the wonderful wait staff, were consummate professionals and made us, and all of our family and friends, feel so welcome at the Inn. We have received so many compliments on everything from the barn to the food, and many of our guests are already planning a return visit to the Inn. We can't wait to mark our anniversary every year at the Grafton Inn!
