We won a weekend at the Fan House in a contest on NPR. My sweetie decided to plan his marriage proposal for that weekend. So we arrived, met Sara, the owner (she's SO lovely), dropped our things in the elegant Fireplace Suite, and went off for a hike along Silver Lake across the street where I received that proposal at...

Quiteness, hospitality, cleanliness and friendliness. We were on honeymoon from Italy and The Fan House was the best way to step into the States. It is an extremely good base to visit Vermont. We were there for the Foliage and we could reach each corner of the state in a while. Sara is an excellent guest and it we had...

We stayed at the Fan House in July with our two girls - and we all had a wonderful time. The rooms are fabulous - done with the best taste. The house is a gem. The garden is almost Monet-like. Our host Sara is the most charming, interesting, warm person I have met for a very long time. The girls...

My husband and I took a trip through New England with my parents, and our most relaxing stay was at The Fan House. Sara was a gracious hostess and a wonderful cook. We wished that we could have stayed longer. There is no doubt we will return.

We first met Sara and the Fan House on our first wedding anniversary. Sara was so wonderful to us. Our room was fabulous and you can't beat her breakfasts! We return to the Fan House every year. It's wonderful!

I have been going to the Fan House since it opened and in all seasons. It was love at first sight and never a disappointment with the place or service. Anyone with good taste would admire how it was restored and how it is appointed. Right away, it felt like home away...from home. Now, whenever I think of taking some...

What a great getaway! Sara is so gracious, we love the comfortable yet classy ambiance. Winding down in the living room, chatting with Sara. Wonderful room and night's sleep. Winding up in the kitchen with the perfect breakfast and conversation. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The Fan House offers a sublime mix of care free living in an extraordinarily welcoming, exquisitely decorated and impeccably maintained home away from home. We have been back many times during summer, fall, winter, and are looking forward to many more visits. Bravo Sara Widness!

By far the best b and b I've stayed at and I've been at quite a few, ranging from the prosaic to the sublime. I would put the Fan House in this latter category for sure, which considering the rates, also makes it a great value.. The town of Barnard is right out of a New England fairy tale with...

When we were at the Fan house we found the rooms to be clean and well decorated. We really felt like we were visiting "old Vermont". We live in Vermont but find too many people have failed to capture the feeling of gracious unreserved hospitality that we found at the Fan House. Vermont would do well if more of our...
