“Charming peoplle and wonderful breakfast”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

We loved that B&B . The rooms and the en-suite bathroom are very comfortable; The beds are excellent. The breakfast on the terrace by their garden ( call it a small park... ) was a real treat, both visually and beacause of the outstanding quality of the food they serve. And Zelia and Gary are such wonderful people, warm, careful and so interesting to talk with! We wish ourselves many happy returns to this wonderful place.

Our stay here was so enjoyable we didn't want to leave! The room was comfortable and uncluttered. Being able to relax in the garden and watch the creek was lovely. The breakfasts each morning were fabulous: freshly cooked with local and organic ingredients, excellent coffee, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Gary and Zelia are knowledgeable about the area, and about much of Vermont. They were able to recommend excellent drives and bike rides, and even some hiking paths that were accessible despite it being the tail end of mud season. Highly, highly recommended!

I have stayed there in total one month (once during winter and once during summer). The hosts are lovely and entertaining, the house and the surrounding garden is beautiful during summer, full of flowers and wildlife. It is in short walking distance of the College and downtown. The breakfast is soooo good! All made from organic ingredients with freshly squeezed juice muesli, fresh fruits etc. They make delicious pancakes with whipped cream and fruit salad or spinach and feta omelet on the weekend!
The bed, room and bathroom are very clean! And the house is not overdecorated with kitsch but rater with unique travel souvenirs from patagonia or south africa.
100% recommendation!

Visiting Middlebury for a week for a conference, I was specifically looking for a place to stay within walking distance of campus, which is why On The Creek made the short list. After talking with Zelia on the phone, I could already tell that she and Gary cared more about their guests than your run-of-the-mill innkeepers. From the moment I arrived during an unusually hot July spell, Gary and Zelia took care of all the little things, like fans in the windows, maps of jogging and biking trails, restaurant recommendations and the healthiest breakfasts I've eaten anywhere. After five days of walking back and forth to campus (and running all around the area's trails), On The Creek felt much more like home, complete with folks who would share easy and wide-ranging conversation, a cup of tea and a place to sleep safe and sound. I'm sure I'll return to Middlebury, and I'll plan to return to a place I consider "a home away from home".

A delightful find, this cozy, intimate bed and breakfast just outside of downtown middlebury was the perfect overnight spot for my husband and I. A beautifully renovated and decorated federal style home offering three bedrooms, this B&B felt like home. Our second floor bedroom was inviting, comfortable, the decor peaceful and perfect in it's simplicity. Guests can enjoy the lovely downstairs sitting room where the warmth from the wood stove in the adjacent kitchen can sooth a vermont fall chill! The owners, gary and zelia, were warm and welcoming and together prepared a full organic breakfast in the morning that was just delicious! Perhaps we will return in the spring when it is warm enough to sit in the garden or sip coffee on the back porch while looking out over the nearby river!

I spent the night at On the Creek B&B with my daughter while we were on a college visitation trip to Middlebury College. I was struck by how CLEAN it was! There was a feeling that the innkeepers really cared about what they were doing, and put loving effort into it. The bed was very comfortable, the innkeepers were friendly and helpful, and the cost was reasonable compared to others in the area. Not fancy, but I prefer it that way. Had a rather European air to it. I would definitely recommend it.

Selfishly I'm reluctant to recommend On the Creek because, with only 3 guestrooms, there won't be room for me next time! Zelia and Gary run a small and lovely B&B. The building itself is restored beautifully. My bedroom had wide pine painted floors, a very comfortable bed, excellent reading lights, and beautiful new windows that kept out the howling wind and rain that marked my stay. The bath down the hall was convenient and user-friendly. Everything was sparkling clean and fresh. Z&G have made a conscious decision not to "overstuff" their place with kitsch. The furniture is Danish modern which goes beautifully with the restoration. The colors are white and earth tones. The walls have minimal art. Yet the overall feel is warm, not stark. I love that they serve breakfast in the kitchen, which feels homey to me. One note - the address is technically Weybridge but the location is closer to Middlebury town center and the College by far than are many other addresses in the Town of Middlebury!
