“Family Gathering”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Our family was gathering for a wedding in Waitsfield and the Featherbed Inn was a recommended B&B. What a wonderful place to come and relax before and after the wedding. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming. I feel like Tom and Linda are family, especially when I sat in their kitchen drinking coffee and talking about Linda's trip to Arizona with her family. For those of you visiting, Tom bakes the most fabulous pies, one of which was taken to another family event by my nephew. I've never slept on a feather bed before and was surprised that it was the best night sleep I've had in months. I would highly recommend you experience this special place.

Featherbed Inn, a bed and breakfast, was a charming and very peaceful experience. The rooms are all decorated in antiques and have fluffy European feather beds. There are horses, a pony and a donkey on the property. The couple were sweet who own Featherbed and include homemade breakfast early in the mornings.

For my family's first time to be in a Bed and Breakfast place, Tom and Linda made this experience such a lovely one. We are used to staying in hotel rooms. So we were kind a skeptical at first. But this place is like home away from home. like visiting relatives. Tom and Linda are so welcoming and the moment we drove inside the property, we saw "Milo" this big black dog, warmed our hearts. I knew right away that this would be a pleasant experience. We stayed in their suite, so we had 2 rooms and had the bathroom just to ourselves. Tom and Linda, prepared the best pancake and the featherbed eggs are the best. The beds are so comfy and we really had good rests after driving 6 hours from New Jersey. We stayed for 2 nights and Tom suggested a place where we had a great water sports just in one place, like Canoe, Kayak, Paddle Board, Pedal boat and in such a beautiful scenery state park. There is a nice swimming hole that is just right across the featherbed inn too. But Tom knows where is the best swimming holes! You need to go there! Not only they gave us the cleanest and most comfortable room, warmest welcome, best breakfast, they also made my son happy coz Linda gave him a bag of chocolate powder that my son loved having during breakfast. I was willing to pay but Linda just gave it for free. For me, that was very kind of them! BTW, I should not forget about Sneakers who kept us company while we were watching movie in their lovely gazebo. I will definitely give them more than excellent, if there is any rating higher than 5, I will give them more! Thank you so much Tom and Linda, I know this is just your business but you treat your guests like your own family! More power and more guests to both of you! My only disappointment, I forgot to take a pix with Tom and Linda and of course with Milo and Sneakers!

At the end of a long week, we enjoy packing a bag, jumping on the bike and taking off to destinations unknown. We love the back roads of Vermont and New Hampshire and most of the time, that's where our journey's take us. At the end of this ride, we pulled over to look for a place to stay - and discovered the Featherbed Inn.

We had no prior reservations and were fortunate that they had a room available.  We arrived only minutes after calling and met Linda as we pulled into the driveway. Linda greeted us as though we had been there many times before and was specifically waiting there for us to arrive.

The inn and our room was warm & inviting. Although it is mid-summer, we imagined ourselves sitting in front of the fireplace during a colder season. On this evening, we sat on the deck where we enjoyed a bottle of wine and gazed at the stars. We woke up the next morning to the smell of a delicious breakfast that we also enjoyed outside on the deck.

The price was reasonable - the inn was cozy - the room and bed were both inviting & comfortable, and Linda & Tom are both warm & friendly. We would absolutely return to enjoy again all that the Featherbed Inn has to offer.

Thank you Linda & Tom!

Great family atmosphere, stayed in the Irmengard suite with two teens and had ample room. Beds very comfortable and the innkeepers were very helpful in accommodating a family member with food allergies. The game room was a great distraction for the kids and the pets were a treat too (especially Sneakers). Already planning a trip back.

We had a family wedding in Waitsfield and eight of us took six rooms at the Featherbed Inn. It was absolutely a treat. Tom and Linda are warm and easy people. Upon our staggered arrival we all gathered in the game room and Tom lit a fire. We had brought some wine and snacks and relaxed and we were provided with wine glasses and serving bowls--it was just right.

That night, climbing into the fabulously comfortable beds was a treat and the breakfasts the next two mornings were delicious.

Add to this, plenty of hot water, beautifully appointed rooms--all with private baths, and the softest water anywhere (for great hair), we couldn't have picked a better place in the Valley.

Room Tip: Some rooms are in the main house and some are in cottages a few steps away. If it matters to you, y...

Our first time at The Featherbed Inn. We saw some good reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. Food was great, looked forward to the 3 courses each morning. Didn't really need any lunch after those meals.

Linda and Tom were great. Tom is really "laid back" and helped carry our bags upstairs. That was a first for us! As it was a real slow week, he made us a pie anyway one afternoon. He had a fire ready to go every night in the lounge area. We just had to light the match.

Rooms are really nicely appointed. Rates are reasonable for the quality.

Room Tip: Room was at rear of house, 2nd floor. Vey quiet
