Suzanne took care of all the details of our elopement weekend this past December. The only stress we had was getting to the Town Clerk's office before closing on Friday to pickup the marriage certificate, as we were coming from 5 hrs away. After that it was time to relax. We stayed in the very comfortable and warm Governor's room which cost extra but was well worth it. We enjoyed the gas fireplace, the stack of classical cd's with mini cd player, the whirlpool tub, terry bathrobes and down comforter. I especially loved using the nice quality full size lavender bath products and was happy to know that the inn encourages recycling and less waste. There was also a nice view of the back lawn, woods and mountains from our windows.
The breakfast each morning was top notch and prepared in courses. Also included in the elopement package was dinner, a bottle of champagne, a nice flower bouquet and a handmade cake! This made the weekend feel very special with all the details taken care of. I really had to do very little planning once we were there and felt very relaxed.
The Governor's House is a special place that brings you back to an earlier time when life felt more simple without technology, although we had very good wi fi service. The furnishings throughout are elegant and clean and there are all kinds of quiet areas to read and relax.
The little village of Hyde Park is charming and the inn is situated close to the Lamoille County trails. I was looking forward to snow cover and to try some snowshoeing but we were just as happy to get some outdoor exercise and fresh air on the trails each day. It was a short 3 day weekend getaway from Friday thru Sunday but we were very happy with our stay at the Governor's House and will look forward to our future stay on our anniversary.
