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...

Hi Robyn, Thanks for the kind words. The Steampunk Festival was a great experience for the Hartness House and for Springfield. We're happy to have folks like yourself contributing to the success. We can't wait for next year's festival. Stop by before then if you get the chance, we'll save one of those mansion room for you. All the best...

Zack and Dave were great hosts. Beautiful spot. Needs upgrading but is coming soon. They hosted first ever steampunk event with a full house. Great job! Thanks from one of The Guild of Extraordinary Gentlewomen.

We stayed here for a long weekend for a wedding. First off I have to say the service and staff are incredible! They were willing to do just about anything asked to make the stay and the wedding great. They even had their first every bonfire just for the Bride and Groom. The house is beautiful and the food is...

Cathleen, We hope the wedding group enjoyed themselves. It was fun getting to know you all. Yes we are going forward with our renovation plans by the end of this month! We're excited. And our internet is already about 10 times faster!! I have to agree with you, Mary's room is pretty great. Truthfully, it's one of my favorites. Thanks...

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.

Everyone we met at Hartness House made us feel like we were their only guests. Very attentive and warm. Since my main reason for booking a room was the mansion, I was VERY disappointed that our room was in the contemporary wing (my mistake). Manager Dave graciously went above and beyond to make sure I was happy by giving me...

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.

Ken, Thanks for the clean, simple review. We're proud to be down here in southern Vermont, just a stone's throw away from all kinds of great attractions and adventures.

I found Hartness House through a Groupon and couldn’t be happier. My husband and I desperately needed some time away from the house. We showed up before check in time and were greeted warmly by David who said it was no problem checking us in early. The weekend just got better and better from that point. We were fortunate enough...

Talk about exemplary house guests. If Debbie and Jeff wrote a book on how to be fantastic, it would sell a million copies. I'm not sure if D+J are happier that they found us or if we're happier that we found them. I am grateful for the new bond we've formed. We look forward to having you with us again...

Reviewed 10 August 2015

I have to begin by saying some of the comments in the reviews were a bit harsh given the fact that the new hosts are up front about the changes and their dedication. It is our understanding that this B&B was recently taken over by new management and they are in the process of cleaning up the home, making changes...

Myself, wife and baby spent three nights in room 205. I booked and paid for the place, later read others' reviews concerning bed bugs here, then stayed here.

Family and I stayed one night at HH on a recent trip through VT. The Inn is located on a small hill beyond downtown Springfield, so it was very quiet there. Our Carriage House rooms were in back of the main Inn. There is an inner hall passageway to get to them although they can be accessed from a side...
