“Bodacious”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Some places deserve five stars even without the bells and whistles or even the price tag that you ordinarily associate with that designation. This one deserves five because of the excellent vibe, the very generous breakfast, the beautiful old house, and the fine attention to detail all around. These folks care and it shows. Bravo.

Room Tip: Can't speak to all rooms. Surrounding streets are busy thoroughfares, but somehow it didn't...

Excellen central location in historic Middlebury. Our room was comfortable, quiet, and well-maintained. Our welcoming hosts Bruce and Brenda were exceptionally accomodating. (Bruce quickly dispatched a small problem with our room cheerfully.) We enjoyed walking everywhere in town for good meals and sights, and had a blast participating in Trivia Night at the Two Brothers Pub. Breakfast was prompt and delicious even though we prefer to dine in a common area with other guests. We hope to return one day.

Great get-away for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary (some business, too). Bruce and Brenda are charming, helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable people; they run a superb Inn and have a superior, friendly staff! Everyone always checking in with us to ensure our comfort. Snacks and bottled water available at all times. Comfortable bed. Great shower! If you need a sit down hot breakfast you won't find that here, but the breakfast-in-bed was a satisfying treat. The turndown service was great...and you'll get a sweet little surprise! Love the Aveda toiletries. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: New Haven room on second floor perfect for us; no quest rooms below us, so it was quiet. Also, it wa...

The rooms were charming and comfortable, and the innkeepers were EXTREMELY hospitable and accommodating to our needs (a small family reunion). We especially enjoyed the breakfast menu which offered plenty of healthy and delicious options (yoghurt, cereals, fresh fruit, locally-made muffins, etc., as well as juices, coffee, tea), brought to our room each morning on a tray table. And we loved the chocolates and weather forecast placed on our pillows each evening!

I notice several previous reviewers have criticized the Inn for lack of a "full breakfast" (cooked eggs or pancakes served in a dining room?) and missed the consequent social interaction with other guests. Perhaps if that is what you are seeking, it's not a true "bed-and-breakfast" . . . but it's a DELIGHTFUL inn and I would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to others.

We only stayed one night, but the staff and owners were so accommodating. We stayed at the end of September and the weather was unusually warm. The fall foliage was gorgeous. We were visiting Middlebury for an event at the college and the inn is within walking distance of the college. Breakfast was included and they brought it right to our room with fresh bakery items! We hope to stay again some time!

We enjoyed our quick overnight at the inn. We got their last room on a very busy weekend. The room was in the annex which is seperate from the main house. The room was clean and comfortable with a queen and win bed. I would have given the inn a higher score but i would have preferred a full breakfast. Not sure of the reason for the continental breakfast but at least they added the interesting touch of breakfast in your room. Fully half of the B&B experience is breakfast so a little disappointed on that front.

We are influenced by the very favorable reviews of the B&B, but were a little disappointed. Here's why. We did not experience the personal touch by the owners that others did, and perhaps more importantly, we realized through this experience that in B&B's, we enjoy meeting others staying in the same B&B around the breakfast table. In this Inn, breakfast is served in one's own room.

We had dinner at the Swift House down the street that evening and found the food very good and the ambiance very pleasant. Maybe next time we will try staying there instead.

Thank you so much for contributing your review to TripAdvisor. It was a pleasure to have you with us during your recent visit to Middlebury! At The Inn on the Green, we offer a model for breakfast that is pretty special; we call it The Inn on the Green "Breakfast-in-Bed". We offer an expanded continental breakfast, prepared to your order and delivered to your room at a time specified by you. The Inn on the Green breakfast features delicious, fresh baked goods from our local bakery and also includes our own oatmeal with Vermont maple syrup, granola from our local natural foods co-op, cheese, yogurt, fresh seasonal fruit, juice, and hot beverages featuring Burlington's own Speeder and Earl's coffee. Our breakfast model is consistent with the personalized service and privacy that many of our guests prioritize when making travel plans that include us. We certainly recognize that other breakfast models also are wonderful, and we hope that the information provided on our website and offered during phone inquiries accurately describes our breakfast offering, so that visitors can make the best choice to suit their preferences. Thank you again for posting, and happy travels!
