Of the many B&Bs we've stayed at over the years, this is one of our all-time favorites. And the great experience we had on our recent repeat trip confirms consistent long-term success with this B&B. We have...

We spent two wonderful days at the beautiful Fan House. The B&B is just a short walk away from the center of town's lake/state park and quaint General Store--a picturesque Vermont setting. The Fan House provides a luxurious and comfortable stay, without being pretentious. Proprietor Sara Widness is both accommodating and knowledgeable. She was quick to make great dining and...
