The pleasure was all mine. It is nice to be able to help out in that situation for you all. Yes we do welcome everyone as family here. It was great to have an impromptu jamb session on African musical instruments with you all. Ilook forward to your return either as your group of 6 or just 2. Thank you for the kind words, regards Sandy

After a mishap at another hotel, we wound up getting to stay at Layla’s. It was the best thing that could have happened. Sandy and Kat were incredibly friendly and welcoming and immediately set the tone for a good stay. I really can’t overstate how good of hosts they were. Great

I went w friends. Our dogs knew each other and were well trained. This does not mean they were always off leashes (the property is NOT fenced), but they were allowed to be. They were (correctly) our responsibility.

Hoping to check in there if I get a chance to go Vermont anytime sooner! Continue the great job and Regards to everyone of your staff and of course to Layla! More power 😊
Thank you for your kind words. Yes Layla's is still open and doing well. We learn every day and try to make it better as we go. When you do make it to Vermont please do stop in for a stay, regards Sandy

I have just watched you with Gordon Ramsay and just wanted to say you came across as the most lovely fellow. I live in England and when I come to America I will come and see you. You came across as so endearing and such a lovely character! Hope all is going well and hope to see you soon x
I second that!! Just watched on tv :)

Hey mate Im from Australia and im planning on going to the US for xmas And hopefully be able to take my dog Pavi but im a bit worried about the cold Would the kennel be heated or can i keep him in my room Gino Angellini Sydney, NSW Australia
The Kennel is heated and you can also keep him in your room...the owner's two setters have the run of the place and are very happy dogs so they can keep Pavi company. I loved Sydney when I visited Darling Harbor in March 2011. So fun! You will love Vermont! Safe travels to you.

"Great Bed. Plenty of drawerspace. Tv bathroom heater and a/c. Indoor kennel playspace needed cleaning everything else was perfect."
"Corner suites are great!"
"Not sure, but my room 6 was perfect."
"Just tell Sandy what you are looking for. Remember you're here to relax, it's Delux Vermont life. Relax, chill and smile"
"Overall everything was fine. I might prefer a softer pillow but that is mostly because I have some neck issues and should've traveled with my personal pillow."
