The Main House of our Vermont bed and breakfast is the most historic part of the property. It is a Federal-style mansion with all the hospitable elegance you would expect in a governor's home - marble sinks, crystal doorknobs, push-button light switches, and a fascinating collection of nooks and crannies. The Swift Room, once the master bedroom, still displays the old brass internal telephone that Mrs. Swift used in Woodrow Wilson's day.The adjacent Carriage House, which was fully modernized in 1990, provides spacious rooms with king-size beds, queen sleeper-sofas, and all the comforts of home. Luxuriate in your own private Jacuzzi, or walk down a flight of stairs to bask in the steam room or sauna. The Mansfield Room has a private patio, which leads to a walkway that weaves through the spectacular lawns and gardens.
You may prefer the economically priced Gate House for your Middlebury lodging accommodations. It is a Victorian gem complete with porte-cochere and wraparound porch. The interior is a pastiche of ornate woodwork and stained glass. Spend the evening next to the fire, or enjoy a game of Scrabble in the parlor. The Gate House is located within the property a 1/2 block from the Main B&B on the corner of Stewart Lane and Route 7, which has some traffic noise.
A hearty breakfast is included in the rate and consists of your choice of several savory and sweet entrees cooked to order. These are complemented by a cold buffet with a choice of cereal, baked items, yogurts, fresh fruit, and always the Swift House Inn granola.
