We so enjoyed this small bed and breakfast in Barnard, VT. Immediately on entering you could feel the age of the home from the floors and the stairways. Sarah had a fire going for us and offered us a cup of tea to ward off the rainy weather we had been experiencing. She offered to make us dinner reservations which... More

The web photos really do not do The Fan House justice; it has a Tuscan type of ambiance that made the whole atmosphere of being in Vermont that much more perfect. It is BEAUTIFULLY and generously appointed and decorated. We stayed in the Fireplace Room and it is thrilling to be there; beautiful, rich eclectic decor, fantastic, plush linens, pillows,... More

My wife and I spent our 40th anniversary here. Sara helped me organize surprise excursions and all meals. Her suggestions were excellent. The inn itself is beautiful and the breakfasts are copious and great. Sara was flexible around our early-to-rise schedule. All in all, this was a perfect stay.

This is undoubtedly my favorite private establishment in which I've ever stayed, and I travel weekly with a performing arts ensemble. The surroundings, staff, and flair at this little place is simply a wonderful experience!

We awoke each day to a hearty & delicious homemade breakfast complete with coffee, tea and juice and headed out for the day by 9:00am.
