Enjoyed every moment! Everything here is truly delightful - warm & friendly innkeepers & staff, the welcoming cozy fire in the sitting room, great (and very well stocked) bar & delicious food - all onsite! We stayed in the Sherman Room - fantastic! So spacious & well-appointed with every desired amenity (fireplace, whirlpool tub, and much more). Decor is just...

The location is great for anyone visiting the town of Middlebury or Middlebury College. My room was huge and very nicely appointed. The Inn is extremely clean and they were happy to give me whatever I asked for (ie. more pillows, blankets, coffee, etc.) I had to extend my visit and the room was very comfortable for 8 nights. The...

We have stayed here on several occasions and it only improves every time. Jacqueline at the front desk, Michele the owner, and Charlene the chef are all really welcoming. Upon discovering that it was my birthday they placed a wonderful box of Vermont chocolates in my room. The Moscow Mule was pretty tolerable too! Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Swift House Inn. Our room in the Carriage House was fabulous. Big King 4 poster bed and a lovely fireplace. The room was really large and of course clean. It was much nicer than I expected. Some times the pictures on-line look better than the real thing, but this was not the case...

We love the Select Registry inns, and this is definitely one of the good ones. We had a big room with an ok size bath. We were very comfortable. Plenty of outlets, coffee in the room and no stairs to climb. Our breakfast each morning was cooked to perfection, and they did not overload you with food. Dinner at their...

This B&B is fantastic! My boyfriend and I went for a long weekend in Feb 2017. I highly recommend staying in the Carriage House. It is located behind the main House and gives you a more private experience. The room was so spacious and we were able to take advantage of the wood burning fireplace despite the unusually warm weather....

The Swift House Inn was a perfect place to spend a couple of nights after the Christmas frenzy. The room was lovely, breakfast in the dining room was excellent although sadly, we were there the two nights during the week that the restaurant is closed, and the general atmosphere of the property was VT picture perfect. Middlebury town is very...

The Swift House Inn is a historic and comfortable inn, particularly convenient for visitors to Middlebury College. We stayed in the Swift Room, which was extremely spacious, with a very reasonable rate. Thee inn is a good base for exploring the area; for example, we took a tour of Middlebury College and checked out the cute little town, including Merchants...

This was the first B&B we have ever stayed in. We stayed in the Alexander Twilight Room in the Gate House for two nights when attending a wedding in Middlebury at another hotel. The room had a very small bathroom, not big enough for two people to be in it at once, but other than that we very much enjoyed...
