Very friendly and helpful when we checked in. The room was very clean and it was peaceful. Def worth the extra hour drive to Jay Peak each day; instead of paying the out of this world prices at Jay.

Thin walls, plastic mattress cover. I bet the river sounds from the window are nice in summer though.

Rustic Inn by a beautiful river. The rooms were dated but spacious with comfortable cozy beds. The bathroom was large with fluffy towels but the shower was cramped with low water pressure leaving a bit to be desired. Overall doable as the rooms were very clean, the owner made you feel at home and the town was enjoyable.

The owners are wonderful! They are also continuously improving the place.

Very clean and quiet inn in a beautiful village. Excellent service.

Amazingly nice and personable owners and cozy room. May want to look into weather stripping around doors if you haven’t thought of it but thank you for a wonderful stay!

The hotel is being renovated. The office looked a little rough but the room was great. A good place to stay; although it’s on a busy road (busy for Vermont) the room was quiet. There’s a nice yard behind the hotel overlooking the river. All in all, a good place to stay in Hardwick.

the place should not have been open. In disrepair. hard to even tell it was an operating business. We did not stay. We drove away.

It's sad news that the walls were too thin for you. The mattress covers are what protect everyone from bed bugs which is a world wide problem. I hope you are willing to come in the summer and hear the river run while sitting at the campfire. You are right the river is delightful!

Hey Adam That was so kind of you to give us such a wonderful review. I will check out the room for air leaks.
