Reviewed 31 January 2005

Stayed during winter of 2002.

Had first floor room at the bottom of the stairs. It was ok. the bed was fairly comfortable and the room a decent size. The door to the room did not block out any noise from the folks going to their rooms on the second floor. Didn't quite feel private. The bathroom was adequate. There wasn't anything particularly charming about the place. It was just an old building with a bunch of rooms for rent.

Breakfast was a little disappointing, mostly due to the fact the bacon was burnt and the smoke from that filled the entire first floor... Burnt bacon smell tends to get into all your clothing

Wasn't the best place we have stayed. Wasn't the worst. Wouldn't recommend it to our friends or to you the reader.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon a couple of years ago, and overall, the stay was mediocre at best. Like another reviewer wrote, we felt like the innkeeper was annoyed anytime we asked her for a suggestion in terms of restaurants or places to visit. The breakfasts were meager, and at about 5 p.m. each day, the inn was completely dark with the innkeeper nowhere in site. So much for the "evening coffee and cookies" promised to us in the brochure. The innkeeper's dogs, while amiable, also left the two of us with an undesired departing gift: our legs were covered in flea bites. We will never return there.

Stayed here on our honeymoon, Fall 2001. The inn was well kept and scenic, and we appreciated that it was far away from everything. Not a very touristy area, but very nice. The inkeeper was very friendly and willing to talk about the area, make suggestions, etc. The room was was comfortable and simply decorated. We loved the breakfast, and enjoyed lounging around the inn's large yard. Highly recommended, and we'll probably go back again.

I just returned from my stay at the Lareau inn and was disappointed in the quality of service and condition of our room at the inn. Our room was a large room that lacked in any charm or "B&B" elegance. Scuffed walls and a moldy shower curtain did not add to the room. The lack of complimentary shampoo for $120/night was also unfortunate. I thought all would be made up during breakfast time- but that was the most disappointing. The innkeeper cooked blueberry pancakes the first morning and french toast the second morning with only two strips of bacon and a small amount of fruit. She wouldn't take any requests and I felt like I was being an inconvience when asking for extra juice or something different. We were locked into the "typical" two-night minimum which appears to be an unfortunate "norm" for B&Bs in Vermont.
