Grey Gables Mansion

Reviewed 27 February 2013

First, let me begin by saying that the individual responsible for the only review that does not give five stars (which was written in 2005) could not be more off base. Without addressing every detail, I can confidently say that review should simply be disregarded.

Anyway, where shall I begin? I have no words to express how truly phenomenal our experience was this past weekend at Grey Gables! After learning Jay Peak had just gotten three feet of snow, my boyfriend and a friend of ours booked a last minute weekend here for a place to stay while not on the mountain from open to close. Tim and Debbie accomodated us in every way possible. They did everything from staying up late to greet us upon our arrival (near midnight), to preparing breakfast especially early so we could catch first tracks, to wrapping our left over dinners so we would have something to eat on our seven hour drive home Sunday night.

They offered local advice for where to eat, popular activities during other seasons and warmly invited us to return any time. Their beautiful dog, Heinz, was incredibly friendly and really contributed to how at home we felt. This was both my boyfriend's and my first bed and breakfast experience (not just together but in our lives) and it certainly set the bar high! I cannot recommend this place enough, for both couples and friends, and we will stay there any time we return for boarding at Jay Peak. Thank you so much Debbie and Tim, we can't wait to come back!

P.S. What everyone says about the breakfasts is beyond true-hands down best morning meals we've ever had.

Back in mid-September we did a spur-of-the-moment bike trip to explore the Missiquoi Valley Rail Trail and the side routes surrounding it. We used the Grey Gables Mansion as our home base for the daily rides. The Inn was comfortable and clean. The morning breakfast was gourmet and generous. Debbie and Tim, the innkeepers, were warm and inviting. The room rate was reasonably priced. Our experience was a good one and we will go back again. Very glad that we discovered the Grey Gables!

The Grey Gables Mansion is less like staying at an inn and more like visiting your sister and her husband - and I mean the sister you like and get along with. The innkeepers Debbie & Tim's warm hospitality was a welcome surprise even in an industry where expectations of personal attention are already high. The huge, rambling inn with its rich woodwork and great stained glass windows is comfortably furnished; the beds are soft and comfy with sheets like butter. Debbie's green thumb is evident in the burst of color and variety of flowers and herbs growing on and around the homey front porch. Coming back from dinner to find a warm fire to relax around was a treat; the breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Should you want to stay at a quintessential New England country inn among the beauty of rural Vermont, the Grey Gables Mansion is warmly recommended.

We spent time in Richford visiting family, a potentially stressful visit, and being able to come "home" to the mansion every evening was a major relief. We are grateful to Tim and Deb for their kindness and generosity (they offered us a second, un-reserved room to help me with my husband's snoring problem), and those breakfasts! Absolutely essential to our busy days. Thanks, Tim and Deb, and darling Heinz, for your lovely oasis of an inn!

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Grey Gables. My girlfriend and I went for a small ski vacation in Vermont and chose this B&B after reading the reviews and reasonable price. We weren't disappointed. Tim and Deb were the best hosts ever. Such warm and friendly people. The breakfasts alone were worth the price of admission. Location was perfect for us. Room was outstanding. I honestly can't find a fault with our experience. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I were thrilled with the Grey Gables! The house is an architectural wonder and Debbie and Tim (and of course Heinzie!!) could not have been better hosts. We loved our cozy, wonderful room, the view of the river across the street, the service, our bed, sitting on the porch with a glass of wine while looking at the most gorgeous garden we've seen in ages, and well, the entire Vermont package. Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this jewel. We will certainly be back!!!
