For our anniversary my boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights. We had an amazing time from the moment we walked in till we drove off the property. The staff is sooo friendly, eager to please and consistently went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The new manager/chef was exceptional, she made our stay. We happen to visit...

Disappointed! The heat was not on, the shower tiles were falling off, staff was not informed. When we made reservations, staff assured us they could tell us of good drives to take. When we got there they had no idea where we should tour. The "full breakfast" was less than advertised. The inn was pretty run down and needs serious...

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Hartness House Inn. The mansion was built in 1903 by James Hartness and served as the family home until 1939 when the estate was purchased and converted to an Inn. The Inn has recently changed ownership and we are working on renovating and upgrading various components of the Inn. We...

I was shocked to walk into this Inn. It was run down and in various stages of decay. The trails that were mentioned were not kept up. The whole place was a total disappointment. They even charged for maple syrup with the breakfast that was included. The only redeeming factor is this Inn was close to Woodstock Vermont. Be smart...

Sorry to hear Susan that you were disappointed in the Inn. The mansion was built in 1903. It is on the National Historic Register. The Inn has had a number of owners over the years since the Hartness family lived here. The Inn has recently been acquired by a new owner who is working very hard to restore the Inn...

I was a vendor at the Springfield Steampunk Festival and we stayed at Harness House. The main house is beautiful and it is a wonderful location. We were in the "modern wing" and it was a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. The owners were just lovely people and made our stay very special. Really it is the people...

Time stayed still ......... The new management is very friendly and helpful. We received good advise what areas to visit nearby. The Inn and rooms are in desperate need of updating. Plans are in the works to bring this Inn back to its old glory. The website is rather misleading.

The Hartness house is a nice place to get away to in southern Vermont. Clean simple rooms, great atmosphere and a fantastic staff make this a great find. The telescope and museum are both well worth a visit and anyone with an interest in history should definitely stop in.
