Gate House Rooms

Our Inn’s Victorian treasure is the Gate House. Built in Middlebury, Vermont in 1906, it is adorned with elaborate woodwork, stained-glass windows, and a porte-cochere. The Gate House is located about half a block from the Main House, on the corner of Stewart Lane and Route 7, and it houses five economically priced rooms, ideal for a quick getaway or for a family looking to gather together. Like the Main House rooms, each room is unique, with its own distinct personality.

Large sitting areas are perfect for chatting with family and friends or playing a board game. In the warmer months, relax in one of the rocking chairs on the wrap-around porch and enjoy a cold glass of lemonade. Also located on the first floor of the Gate House is an ice machine, a Duraflame log fireplace, a single serve coffee machine, and a jar of our homemade cookies, so guests are never far from the things they need.

The complimentary full breakfast is served just a short walk away in our Main House. Every day we offer a cold buffet of fruits, yogurts, and cereals, including our house-made Swift House Inn granola, and hot entree items like French toast, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, oatmeal, and eggs cooked to order.

Due to the Gate House’s location, the rooms in this building may not be the best choice for our guests who are light sleepers. We can help you choose the room that best suits your needs.
