We had the privilege of spending 3 nights at the Ira Allen house and thoroughly enjoyed it. The history of the house and the house itself is amazing. It is located in a beautiful area of Vermont. Everything was spotless and cozy. And the breakfast - in a vacation of excellent food, our breakfasts were the highlights. Loved talking with...

Every review I read glowed with superlatives, and so richly deserved. The ambience - warm and cozy; the breakfast - fantastic, with fresh ingredients and homemade quality; the beds - very comfortable and the host, Mike - helpful, friendly and welcoming. Mike and Kevin obviously work hard to make this place the gem it is, and are deserving of the...

Last week my husband and I went to Williamstown for a matinee. We booked the Ira Allen House for that evening. It is lovely easy ride about 40 minutes from Williamstown. The home was built in the 1700s and the original floors and ceiling beams are amazing. The place is comfortable and homey. Michael, one of the owners, greeted us...

This B&B is wonderfully located south of Manchester. The House is steeped in history about which the owners will tell in short stories at breakfast. The rooms are a mix of suites and singles, all on the second floor so inaccesible if unable to climb the staircase. The rooms offer air conditioning, comfortable bedding and upgraded bathrooms with shower stalls....

This B&B was simply perfect for our one night stay during a long road trip. Michael was so personable and generous within his residence that we felt very special as guests. We had a picnic on the grounds in front of the house, a canoe ride on the river and slept very well in the clean, quiet and lovely rooms....

We spent 2 nights here, and wish we could have stayed longer! Stayed in the Remember Baker Suite, and really enjoyed the space. Queen bed, fireplace in sleeping area, a little sitting room with a day bed, full bath with shower, and a separate room with a tub! Nice private deck overlooking wooded area. Large TV, and most of all,...

The historic Ira Allen House offers multi-bedroom suites and single rooms in the center of many great attractions in Southern Vermont. The inn was comfortable, clean and over the top in creating a friendly, warm inn experience for their guests.

We stayed at the Inn sight unseen to attend a wedding. While others were are more well known places, we decided to try this Inn. It was great and we will definitely go back. Mike and Kevin are great hosts. The rooms tastefully done. Homemade breakfast was excellent. Centrally located with great biking on quiet streets nearby.

My husband and I stayed one night in mid June. We chose the Ira Allen House because of the history. I thought it would be fun to stay in a house built by Ethan Allen. Arlington is about a 10 minute drive from the larger community of Manchester which is a nice place to go and shop or dine. Michael...

I have previously never stayed in a B&B, nor have I wanted to. The whole concept was intimidating to me and made me slightly uncomfortable. However, staying at The Ira Allen House for 4 days has completely changed my view. Michael and Kevin (the owners) are simply fantastic. They have a gift when it comes to making one feel as...
