    Wonderful Furmily vacation

    We Love Mitch and the Paw House Inn. We go every year now and look forward to visiting our new family and friends. The breakfast is always delicious. Our dogs loved that we were able to take them on all of our outings. We went to the farmers market, many dog friendly restaurants and amazing hiking trails.
    We love that they always have a list of dog friendly places. When we were in the rooms we were able to enjoy netflix!
    Looking forward to many more visits!

    Neither Humans Nor Dogs Well-Taken Care Of

    I would like to preface my review by saying that I had given the management of The Paw House Inn as much notice as possible with regards to my wife's dietary restrictions (she's vegan) by filling out the appropriate web forms and calling them two days before we arrived. My wife, dog, and I stayed at The Paw House Inn for the VT Spartan Beast weekend. Mitch, one of the owners, made us feel at ease about leaving our dog with his staff for the entirety of the race day. Upon initial inspection, our room seemed cozy and well-suited for dogs (stairs by the bed, separate dog bed, lots of towels, etc.) Unfortunately, our good impression of the inn did not last long, as we ran into a number of issues, which made our stay frustrating and disappointing.

    Most of the windows in our room, Shakespeare’s Retreat, were either missing bug screens or had ones riddled with holes. Thus, we ended up running the old in-room AC unit (awkwardly placed at a floor level) and the ceiling fan, which made it rather cold to sleep at night. It was wasteful to run an AC unit on a cool night, and neither of us slept very well. Furthermore, a broken bathroom fan, lack of any sort of desk (Shakespeare would not approve), extremely slow and weak WiFi signal (my wife was forced to use her phone as a hotspot to get work done), and non-existent cable did not help improve our stay.

    My wife’s first breakfast at the inn was a bitter disappointment. While my meal consisted of a freshly-baked blueberry muffin and vegetable omelette, she received a plate of dry granola and a plate of flavorless sauteed vegetables. The woman who cooked and served us food, in addition to doing just about everything else around the inn (the owners live elsewhere and were hardly around), did not seem very sympathetic to my wife’s lackluster breakfast. When asked why, for instance, something as simple as vegan waffle or pancake batter (regular waffles and pancakes were served) could not have been made ahead of time, she said that it would not be worth the effort to make and would need to be thrown out afterwards. The woman did, however, pass our feedback to Mitch, who made sure that my wife’s last breakfast was a better experience. It is unacceptable for a bed and breakfast who claims on their website to “accommodate dietary restrictions such as gluten free and vegan" to deliver such unsatisfying vegan breakfast. Customers should not have to complain to management to ensure a better quality meal.

    Finally, I would like to mention that our dog did not have a good time staying in the kennels while we were away. She generally feels a lot more comfortable with other people and dogs around her and, based on the state that she was in when we picked her up, she spent most of the time alone, without much of the two comforts. The inn was heavily occupied throughout our stay, but we hardly saw any other dogs in the kennels. My suspicion of owners violating the inn policy and leaving their dog(s) in their rooms was confirmed when I saw a couple from our inn at the same restaurant with my wife and I, getting dinner. Their dog was not in the kennel when we dropped off ours. This is not the fault of Paw House Inn, though it is very frustrating.

    Given the lack of dog-friendly accommodations near Killington, VT, we did not have any other options for places to stay. However, knowing what we now know about The Pawhouse Inn, we will leave our dog with a dog-sitter next time we are faced with this dilemma.

    Great Place to spend time with your furry kids

    Dogs had fun, breakfast was delicious but best part was the staff....they truly love dogs. Missed meeting the owners as they were on vacation but we will be back so hope to meet them next time. Only drawback was air circulation inroom...air conditioner was extremely noisy but without it, room got stuffy. Bathroom needed the air circulation too. Entire Inn was spotlessly clean.

    Happy dog and humans

    The personalized welcome sign (for the dog) at check-in says it all. This place takes catering to dog and dog owners seriously. Includes dog park and kennel on property. Can leave the dog in kennel and owners of the Inn will check on them while you are gone. Very pet friendly area.

    No worries - dogs have a blast!

    Love this place - Mitch the owner is a fantastic host. Murphy and CarolAnn his helpers really love dogs and play with them while you are put doing stuff - you can be confident the dogs are having a great time. Breakfasts are great - fresh muffins fruit and a variety of scrumptious omelettes. Highly recommended!!

    The Queen and Princess treated like royalty

    This B&B caters to dogs. They have soft beds for the dogs.During the day, the dogs play, sleep, and drink in the annex, a not-so-small building that has good spaces for them.The innkeepers even take the dogs out to roam in their own dog park. My only regret was we were there for a meeting in Castleton, and I was unable to take full advantage of the breakfast, which I am told was fabulous. You want your dog pampered? This is the place to go.
