The inn is a charming, historical place in a small, quaint town. The staff was friendly and the rooms were adequate, although with no amentities to speak of.....harsh towels, no tv, etc. But the biggest problem was the generator which was a VERY loud hum going all day and night. It's a shame to go to the country and be...

My son and I stayed here the night before his interview at Vermont Academy. The room was wonderful (one bedroom suite - there was a pullout bed in the main room). Comfortable beds and wonderful bathroom, complete with very spacious tub and nice shower. Lots of toiletries were provided. I thought the Inn itself was beautiful and very well kept....

I visited Grafton for the first time in March. The weather was cold, and snowed some days. This Inn has a wonderful atmosphere for an authentic Vermont experience. We were placed in one of the out "homes" belonging to the Inn. Home #1. This beautifully restored home was saved by the Grafton Trust, and was a wonderful home and gathering...

So glad that you enjoyed some snowy, cold days in March here at the Grafton Inn! Thank you for sharing your experience. Of course, any season is a good time to getaway, unplug and unwind in Grafton. Yes....it truly is an authentic Vermont experience! When you come the next time, ask about our self-guided covered bridge driving tour......16 historic covered...

Attended a business retreat at the Grafton last week and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. The friendly, attentive, professional staff were a delight; the room was spacious and well equipped; dinner was superb; and the meeting room was perfect. Alas I was traveling on my own, so can't wait to bring my wife here for some R&R.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay at the Grafton Inn last week. The inn offers total relaxation in a rural, quaint part of the country. It was so nice to spend some time simply unwinding without the hustle and bustle of the city-type getaways we often embark on. Our favorite part of the inn was the dining -...

I was lucky enough to attend a meeting recently at the Grafton Inn. Everything about the inn's facilities, accommodations and foods was just perfect. The inn has been so beautifully preserved, yet free wi-fi, flat screen TVs and computers are seemlessly part of the decor, making it perfect for we "plugged in" travelers. We had the opportunity to enjoy dinner...

Friendly, charming, great breakfast, historic, beautiful, comfortable bed, nice room, extremely clean, and then pretty remarkably, it is also very affordable. I could not recommend it more highly. We went for just a place to stay in the area, but it could be a destination all by itself. It is a beautiful inn, perfect for a quaint Vermont town.

Claustrophobic little place with average food. The Inn is within a mile of Grafton Ponds x-country ski area, so is very convenient, if skiing is your plan. We got a good deal at $100/night for the room; I wouldn't want to have paid more than that. The atmosphere is what you'd expect, quaint and cosy. Unfortunately, I have mild lower...

The Grafton Inn, or The Old Tavern as my wife and I knew it when we first visited Grafton in 1989, became our home away from home. Warm, friendly and comfortably relaxing. Great breakfasts and wonderful dinners. We expect to come back many times to come. - Carl & Marie Braun, Woodbury, CT

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at "The Old Tavern", now the Grafton Inn in 1975 and have returned many, many times; every year for the last decade. That in itself should be commendation enough. This is a quiet, peaceful place. The rooms are quaint and comfortable. The food is amazingly good. The staff is very helpful and friendly....
