We booked at the last minute and the staff was flexible, accommodating and polite. Our host, Mitch met us at the door, welcomed us and gave us great information on local dog-friendlly dining, hiking and biking. The rest of the staff was young, professional and energetic. The house was warm, welcoming, clean and casual. The house specialty breakfasts were fantastic as was the conversation on the porch each morning. There was an agility/play ring to keep our Sheltie busy and he was very comfortable and safe in the play house while we took a day to ourselves. It's nice to know there's still a place to stay where people are friendly & polite. And they're relaxed about having your dog in their home. They weren't hovering over us or keeping an eye on our every move. They checked us in, made sure we were comfortable and understood all of the rules, then left us alone with our dog and other doggy folks like ourselves. We had a great time and would highly recommend it. If you're looking for a sterile environment with paranoid hosts and heightened security, this probably isn't for you... nor is Vermont!
