Betsy's Bed and Breakfast

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by RBT331 on October 2, 2006

This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast, and would most likely not be our last.

We arrived a tad early, and we were able to check-in easily. We went upstairs and our room (room 2) was right at the top of the stairs.

The whole house was appointed in country/Victorian decor. Perhaps a bit too old-fashioned for me, but fits what I picture a B&B being.

Every morning, there was a hot breakfast ready to start your day (that, and gratuity, is included in the room rate). You had a choice of style of eggs, a meat (i.e. sausages, bacon), as well as fruit, cereal, juice and coffee. The service was good and food was fantastic.

The room was tidied up every day, which was nice. We typically leave our rooms neat anyway, but it was nice to come back to a nicely made bed everyday.

Parking: There is a gravel lot across the street, a couple of spaces on-site, and street parking. We never really found an issue in parking. In the winter though, know that you can't park on th street (per the city).

Location: It is perched along a hill on East State Street. It is about a 10-15 min walk downhill to downtown Montpelier, or a couple minute drive. Once in town, there are a couple municipal lots (with meters) to allow you to walk downtown.

Overall, for a first B&B experience, it was a pleasant one. The location is good, the food was good, rates were reasonable (off-season, aka not foliage season). We would recommend this to our friends
