My wife and I stayed here as part of a inn to inn bike trip in Vermont. This was by far our favorite stop which thankfully was also the one we spent two nights at. Diana and John (the innkeepers) were absolutely wonderful and welcoming to their weary travelers. The nicely restored and decorated farm house was very comfortable & clean and Diana's country breakfasts are awesome! Although out in the country, a diner is a short walk across the road which was good for us car free travelers. If you are looking to get away and enjoy the beautiful Vermont countryside, look no further. They will definitely make you feel at home.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tucked away in southeastern Vermont’s Windham County, Townshend has quietly gone about its business since 1753, when it was chartered as one of the New Hampshire Land Grants. Named after British politician Charles Townshend, whose tax initiative prompted Boston’s biggest tea party, this quintessential New England town charms visitors with its natural beauty, including rolling hills, a state park with hiking trails, a gorgeous town green, and a lake. Original farmsteads dot the countryside, along with a historic covered bridge, antiques stores, and modern shops, including a fabulous smokehouse-country store. While most of tranquil Townshend inspires one to unplug, those who feel the need to shake things up a little will appreciate that bustling Brattleboro lies only 17 miles away and the nearby resorts of Stratton Mountain, Bromley Mountain, and Mount Snow offer all sorts of alpine adventure. ... more less
