As a Middlebury College alumna and now parent of twin daughters there, we've stayed at the Swift House several dozen times. Each time it is like coming home. A picture perfect historic country inn, the Swift House has comfortable and inviting public rooms, a fantastic wine cellar, a solid dining room with a delicious included cooked-to-order hot breakfast, and charming, comfortable bedrooms. Michelle and Dan, the innkeepers, have a constant presence and bend over backwards to ensure their guests' comfort. Susie at the front desk is always cheerful and helpful. We have stayed in many of the rooms and are partial to the Swift Room (main house, queen bed, fireplace and jacuzzi) and most of the rooms in the deluxe Carriage House, all with fireplaces. The Gate House too is a great option for less expensive but still comfortable and charming rooms. As the rooms are all very different (part of the Inn's charm) and with varying price points, you should express your needs upon booking and will be steered to the right sort of room. The Inn has special little touches like a jar of fresh-baked cookies out in the public spaces, apples, tea and hot chocolate, etc. Having stayed at the Inn in all four seasons it is hard to pick my favorite. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Middlebury.
