This Band B was chosen because I was participating in Tough Mudder and was walking distance to the event. This is walking distance from Mt. Snow where the event was, and in the winter works out for those who want to ski.
Royal is the owner and she was so helpful with all the information I needed for my stay, including the event that I was participating in. She also gave great directions to the Grafton Cheese Village where we found awesome Vermont cheese.
The inn has small rooms and you can hear the doors close when other guests enter their rooms. Everything seems to be in close quarters but everyone has their own bathroom. However, no tv - the only tv was in the common room downstairs. We had a room with a queen bed ad a twin, with access to a small balcony that shares with the other rooms in the place.
The only unusual thing I had to do was instead of reserving the room via credit card I had to provide a check for the deposit, which was one night's fee for me since I was staying two nights. I paid the rest on credit card upon arrival - not when checking out. This actually ended up being convenient because I didn't have to rush to check out, I could take my time leaving since everything was already paid.
Breakfast was good and the one running it was very pleasant. Loved talking and getting to know the staff, they were so helpful and inviting.
