“Wonderful weekend with our dog”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We had a wonderful weekend recently at Strong House Inn with our chocolate lab. We had been looking for somewhere we could go and take him with us and yet still feel pampered and in a beautiful setting. Strong House Inn filled all those requirements perfectly. Mary and Hugh are gracious hosts with good suggestions for walks with the dog. They even provided a dog bed and bowls for his water and food! The inn is lovely, with several acres of landscaped grounds and walking paths. Breakfast varied each day and each was delicious. Can't beat pancakes with Vermont maple syrup and Jones sausage (My mother always said it was the best!). Highly recommended!

The epitome of a great experience is great service and this is exactly what Strong House exudes. Mary went above and beyond in accommodating the needs of my family members, one of which is going through chemo and has some dietary needs, and her kindness was appreciated by all of us. Mary spent time discussing the room options, before I booked, and she made excellent recommendations based on our particular situation. The rooms were excellent in both buildings. We were never made to feel like anything was a hassle. The setting and grounds were stunning and you have some great restaurants nearby in the little town (Black Sheep was great!). Thank you, Mary, for a great weekend!

Just got back from a nice 2-day retreat at the Strong House Inn- Mary and Hugh, the innkeepers, were super nice & charming. Mary spent a lot of time talking us through some of the nicest spots that nearby towns had to offer, and she really knows her stuff!

I was really impressed- loved the ambiance and friendliness of the staff- would definitely return in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Stayed at the Appalachian Room- very nice ambiance & electric fireplace & jacuzzi.

Just spent 4 days at The Strong House Inn a beautifully restored historic old home that is now an "Inn" that is perfectly located for a peaceful, quiet, and lovely environment, yet minutes away from everything you could ask for in shopping, dining, and Lake Champlain, which in itself has so much to offer. The innkeepers, Mary and Hugh, are delightfully warm and friendly. Everything is geared to you being pampered and the food is delicious as well as healthy. My package included a teacher to learn a craft, as well as all my meals and tea and happy hour, and the availability of a masseuse. You can dress casually, and comfort is the word of the day. A station in the kitchen provides hot coffee or tea at any hour of the day or night. ( You have to try Mary's Chai Tea---delightful) The price is a bargain for what you get. You will go back again and again once you have spent time there. Pets are welcome with emphasis on "non pet" people not being inconvenienced but pet owners having their pets pampered as well as their "humans". A place you really MUST spend some time in. It will recharge your spirit.

Room Tip: MY favorite is Samuel's room which is on the first floor and has a private entrance/exit out to...

As an avid quilter, I always look forward to my retreats at the Stronghouse Inn. The quilting room is big, bright and efficient. The bedrooms are all specially appointed as individually charming spots of rest & relaxation. The food, freshly prepared by Mary, is always a treat for eye and body. Whether your visit ts over night or longer, Mary and Hugh, as host and hostess, will see to your wishes and make your stay the best ever.

Room Tip: They are all so individual it's hard to choose. I've stayed in most of them and found each o...

Had a great weekend getaway at the Strong House Inn. The owners were incredibly friendly and very helpful with anything we needed during our stay. The breakfast is also top notch (especially the French Toast). I stayed here in February, and it was very easy to access the nearby ski resorts (Mad River Glen & Sugarbush are under an hour away). Would love to return in the summertime and stay again.
