We are originally from Connecticut and my wife and I were up from Florida to visit our daughter and her family in "Beautiful Brandon Vermont" and looking for a B&B in Brandon was a snap and we were blessed to pick the right B&B! Donna is an amazing hostess! Our stay was terrific at The Gazebo Inn. My wife loved... More

Donna was an absolute joy! She is very enthusiastic and a wonderful ambassador for Vermont. Breakfast was delicious especially the ginger pancakes and pumpkin bread. This was our first trip to Vermont and the Gazebo Inn was the perfect start.

Food was delicious! Hospitality was wonderful! Donna was a gracious hostess and couldn't be more accommodating. Easy access downstairs bedroom for myself who can't go up stairs and she gave my son an upstairs room for the difference since I couldn't go upstairs to the room with two beds. Clean and thoroughly enjoyed our stay while visiting Middlebury College.

From the moment we requested our dates, Donna was the perfect hostess. She took care of our dinner reservations (altering them several times due to our changing party size), and provided us with warm ginger snaps and fresh lemonade upon our arrival. One of the most comfortable beds we could remember and a knock-out breakfast each day. We loved every... More

So glad you chose The Gazebo for your stay in Brandon. I so enjoyed your visit and learning about your interesting careers. I'm glad you felt pampered. B&Bs are a unique opportunity to provide visitors a special opportunity to feel "at home" while being away from home. I look forward to your visit next year. More

As others have commented, Donna is an exceptionally warm and enthusiastic hostess who takes pride in her house and garden. She makes a delicious breakfast: fresh fruit, home-baked muffins, peach pancakes or berry-covered waffles -- you will eat more than you'd planned to. The historic house (dating from the 1860s) has lots of interesting details; the rooms are clean and... More

The Gazebo Inn was the perfect place for us to stay on our trip to the area to do some road biking in the lovely countryside to the west and south of Brandon.

The Gazebo Inn B&B always is an enthusiastic welcomer of cyclists. I was so impressed with your family's enthusiasm and grit in persevering through various weather patterns during your stay. All in all, fortunately you did get a bicycling holiday -- complete with an historical exhibition on bicycles. Come again and explore new routes! More

Lovely B and B, Donna (the innkeeper) was delightful and the breakfasts we had were delicious. The gardens at the inn are beautiful. The bed was neither too soft or hard, the bathroom was nice with good water pressure. It is a great place to stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cozy elegance is experienced at this National Historic Register 1860s home. Located just north of town our B&B provides relaxation on a private property displaying a variety of perennial gardens. Architecture is that of the classic New England Federal style. Decor is that of distinctively combined Victorian furnishings with contemporarily-crafted pieces reflecting refinement yet comfortableness. All guest rooms boast private bath, AC, fine linens, featherbeds, down comforters, hairdryers, and robes. Breakfasts are known as having sumptuous -- but healthy -- offerings.Summer guests enjoy reading on the screened porch, the gazebo, or on one of the several patios. Winter guests can snowshoe or XC ski down our back hill, enjoy a roaring fire in the library, or relax in the reading alcove. In the fall you'll be leaf peeping, but our porch is for 3 seasons so put your feet up and enjoy our array of refreshments while viewing our multi-colored trees.Brandon's downtown -- with its eateries, art galleries, unique shops, and old-fashioned ice cream parlor -- are but a stroll away. WiFi and HD TV with DVD player and Nexflix connection are provided. We are perfectly located for a vacation stay; i.e., The Stephen A. Douglas Museum and town Tourist Center is but a few doors down; hiking/XC skiing are a ride up the mountain; swimming on beautiful Lake Dunmore is even a shorter jaunt; bike rentals can be delivered to enjoy a variety of cycling routes, including to Brandon's nearby covered bridge or a bit longer trip to Lake Champlain.Discounts available for learning vacations in the traditional arts and for the Cafe Provence Cooking School, full-house rentals, and summer multi-day stays. Children and families welcomed. ... more   less
