“Great B and B”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

My cousin and I booked the two rooms at On the Creek Bed and Breakfest in Middlebury Vermont for its location near the Otter Creek Brewery and great hikes in the Green Mountains. The old brick home of Zelia and Gary is beautifully rennovated into perfect shape by the hands of Gary. The rooms are comfortable and nice sized in a private location in the house. There is a living room and study for quiet relaxation. And the grounds are adorned by lovely plants and shrubs with the property slanting down to the Otter Creek. A delicious breakfest is served (in warm weather) out on the porch. And Zelia and Gary are wonderful hosts who are engaging yet know how to give their guests the space they require. It was a real treat to stay there. 5 stars all around.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely

Whether you are in Middlebury for a visit to the College or a relaxing time in the area, you can't go wrong with On The Creek B&B. Zelia and Gary, the owners, are helpful, friendly and accommodating. Rooms and facilities are spotless and comfortable. Private, quiet, lots of light, great garden and a stroll to the creek behind the house. You can relax in the living room or spend time chatting over tea. Best breakfast in town. On the Creek is reminiscent of a B&B in the UK - great for a relaxing stay. --- Steve K.

We were passing through Middlebury on our way to a Vermont skiing trip in January, and thought we would stop for a relaxing afternoon and evening before the more active part of our schedule. Zelda and Gary were very friendly and helpful in recommending a few things for us to see during our short visit. Breakfast was delicious, and came with a show in the form of several species of birds at feeders near the dining room window. We would recommend this lodging and our hosts as the first choice if we were traveling near here in the future.

We stayed here last August for some days with our two girls (7 and 10) while visiting a friend who lives in Middlebury - sorry this review only comes now.
Everything was just perfect! I think I never ever stayed in a place so calm and peaceful and never felt so welcome. It was just like coming to a friend's house.
Our girls could just run around in the yard and Zelia gave them skipping ropes and they had such a good time.
The rooms are the cleanest I have ever seen in a hotel / B+B (or my own house ;-) ). The photos cannot show how nice it is. There is lots of room for your clothes and bags.
Zelia and Gary are the most relaxed and cool hosts. They serve only organic food and the breakfast was wonderful. Will never forget Gary giving us our first cup of coffee in the morning. Yummie!
This all sounds too good to be true but it is. Plus there is the backyard leading all the way down to the creek - sooo peaceful.
They help you with tips where to go and we had the most interesting conversation about all kinds of topics. Wish we could come again soon.
What else? Well, even the one person staying there when we were there was nice...so seriously there is nothing about this place that is not just perfect. Would like to live there!
So: Zelia and Gary if you read this: THANK YOU so much for the warm welcome and everything that made our stay so very comfortable.

Had the pleasure of staying with Zelia and Gary for six nights in Middlebury -- as a solo traveler, this is the kind of place I hope to find! This beautiful home is the most warm and comfortable place I've had the fortune to stay in during my travels. The breakfasts that every other reviewer here raves about are absolutely delicious. As others have written, the location is convenient to downtown Middlebury. My room was spacious and quiet with a view of the beautiful grounds. Even more important, the bed was extremely comfortable and the house was heated very well, so I never felt cold at night. Am so grateful to the other people on Tripadvisor who wrote such glowing reviews about this extraordinary B&B! Staying here made my time in Vermont even more memorable.

Room Tip: I stayed in the smaller room on the second floor.

Our two night stay in mid-October was delightful. The house is beautifully restored and has lots of interesting architectural details. The grounds are well kept and fun to explore. Our room was spacious, elegant, and cheerful. The bed was very comfortable, and three windows let in lots of natural light.

The breakfasts were both delicious, healthy, and filling. Gary and Zelia were enjoyable meal-time companions: easy to talk to and happy to share interesting stories and suggestions on how to pass the time at Middlebury.

Would stay here again on my next visit to town.

Room Tip: Be aware that both bedrooms share a (very nice) bathroom.

Our single-night stay in mid-October was perfect. Zelia and Gary are thoughtful, friendly and inviting hosts. The comfort of the room, beds and bath was superb, and breakfast was delicious and filling. The location is very convenient for both town and campus, and the setting is charming. If you admire major restoration, you will be in awe of the quality and detail in this beautiful restored home. We highly recommend On the Creek Bed & Breakfast for a relaxed retreat in Middlebury.
