“I almost (almost!) didn’t want to go home” on Booking.com
The house itself is a gorgeous old Victorian, with stained glass windows, crown moldings, a wrap-around porch, and other details of the Victorian style, but it has been meticulously updated, with all the modern conveniences we want when traveling. Each room has a full private bathroom and its own thermostat. I tend to run warm, so I turned my heat off. I didn’t have to swelter in a room controlled by anyone else (and I kept my ceiling fan on as well). If I had traveled during the summer, I could’ve turned my AC on full blast—without freezing out any other guests. That’s just the start of what I liked about the Sinclair Inn. Owners Dan and Tom are gracious, inviting, and willing to go the distance in making their guests comfortable. Their breakfasts are AMAZING. Cold drinks, coffee, and tea are free and conveniently located down the hall. Parking is free on site. And don’t get me started on how soft and comfortable the bed was! I’m sorry for the cliche, but it was like sleeping on a cloud! I could go on and on. The Sinclair Inn is a 5-star accommodation!
“Everything was beyond our expectations” on Booking.com
Thanks to Dan and Tom for reminding us what genuine hospitality means and we both work in hospitality in NYC for the last 20 years including three Michelin star restaurants. Everything was beyond our expectations. The property was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was exceptional. I don’t eat meat and they made sure to replace every meat item on the menu either with a vegetable or a meat substitute that is delicious. Our somewhat picky eater eight-year-old daughter was also accommodated with all her needs and she was super excited for next days breakfast. Tom is an amazing host at breakfasts and it was a pleasure to be greeted by him every morning and Dan is a great chef. We can not wait to go back to Sinclair Inn.
“Perfect, as always!” on Booking.com
It was my third time here, visiting from the UK and I was able to bring along my mum and friend (and sister, for whom it was her second time). Breakfast was incredible and Tom and Dan were wonderful. The only downside of this B&B is that it books up so quickly!!
“Quite possibly the best B&B you’ll ever stay in!” on Tripadvisor
This actually IS the best B&B we’ve ever stayed in! First off, let me just say how spotlessly clean and beautiful this house is! The rooms are elegantly decorated including a very comfy king bed. A small room down the hall had a coffee machine and a fridge to stash your leftovers and stocked with water and other beverages for your use. The grounds are also lovely with a pond and a nice patio.
Speaking of elegant, the breakfasts were some of the best I’ve had! A baked apple filled with cooked oats, topped with yogurt and apple cider reduction; egg baked with asparagus and goat cheese; and fried chicken and waffles – just a few examples of how unique the fare was. Not to mention the ever appearing snacks – cookies, brownies, apple tart. And it was ALL delicious.
The innkeepers, Tom and Dan, are delightful and engaging. We really enjoyed visiting with them. They go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience at their inn. They are there to give directions, suggest places to eat, routes to take, and things to see and do. We loved chatting with them and learning about the house.
Another thing worth mentioning is the central location of the inn. You can go east to Burlington in 1/2 hr or west to Waterbury and Stowe in 40 mins.
This place is like a home away from home – only better! We hope to come back someday and stay longer!
“Fully deserved 5 star review” on Tripadvisor
We stayed mid-week for two nights and really enjoyed the entire experience. We were welcomed by Dan and shown to our room. We would later meet the other owner, Tom. These are two hard-working gentlemen who oversee the entire operation. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable. There are common rooms to lounge about and outdoor areas too. We were served breakfast one morning in the dining room and the next served on a nice deck when two other couples joined up with us.
The breakfasts on both days were top-notch. Top quality ingredients, carefully prepared by Dan, who was professionally trained as a chef in his previous employment. This was not some continental breakfast. It was a two-course, hot breakfast. The presentation was superb, as was the taste.
The grounds are wonderful, professionally designed to maximize the beautiful flora which draws butterflies and hummingbirds. It is easy to sit and meditate in the large yard, with privacy and a seating area. A very relaxing place.
I forgot a clothing item, and before I had even returned home to RI, they were on the phone to me, promising to mail it. Thanks, guys.
“Warm hospitality, sumptuous breakfast” on Tripadvisor
Stayed here for two nights on a getaway to ski at Stowe. We chose it because the price seemed much more reasonable for what was offered than what we could find closer to Stowe. It paid off in spades!!! The house is lovely, our king room was beautiful with a large bathroom, walk in shower, and nice hot water. Tom and Dan offer great hospitality which was topped off with a delicious and filling breakfast every morning. (They also offered us vegetarian!). It’s a pretty drive to Stowe from here and we had a wonderful stop in Waterbury for shopping and dinner apres ski. Highly, highly recommend staying here.
