The Inn itself is quite lovely - set back from busy Route 7 with a gorgeous property. If one could just enjoy the setting, it would be a nice place to stay. But for the next 6 weeks the road next to the Inn is being demolished (repetitively) so there is no calm, and no quiet. No naps, and no sleeping in, and no sitting out on their porch.
Clearly this is not under the Inn keepers control, but they did know about it and not mention it. We had selected this Inn and one other in Vermont from all the others, hoping for a quiet, beautiful stay. This was seriously not our trip.
Owners tried, although we had issues with almost everything else. I wouldn't return, but you might find it better once the construction calms down.
