We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This stately home is prominently situated on the town green, convenient to everything the town has to offer. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with a variety of hot dishes, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, juices and more. Our room was smaller than sn most, and the bathroom is not for large people. I would definitely recommend staying in one of the larger rooms with a fireplace to fully enjoy the ambiance of this historic home.
I have stayed many times at the Marble Mansion Inn. I can't say enough about this place. I feel like it is my second home. I could stay at a large hotel chain in Rutland for the anonymous experience, However, what I love about the Marble Mansion is the felling of being home. You can't get that at any hotel chain. The sense of welcoming you can't put a price on. This is a home from the early 1900's with all the charm and patina of a historical B&B but with modern amenities. A must STAY!!!
Marble Mansion is an authentic old home, clad in marble panels, and beautifully restored and maintained. I first stayed there 35 years ago with a Bike Vermont tour group. The current husband-wife owners greeted us warmly, and were in and around the building all the time - it's their home. The rooms have 12-foot ceilings and decorative flourishes reflecting the era in which the house was built. However, the bathroom, which was undoubtedly added decades later, was cramped. I managed to loose my billfold on the grounds, which I didn't realize until we were 60 miles away. The staff found it, and were extremely helpful in getting it back to me at a location later in our trip. When you're in or around Fair Haven, MMI is THE place to stay - it's almost a destination unto itself.
What better way to get away from all the stresses of our modern society than to stay in a beautiful 100+ year old mansion? Everywhere you look you are reminded of an era when craftsmanship mattered. When the functional was artistically created. When the pace was a bit slower so that you could appreciate your morning cup of tea in a hand painted bone china cup and saucer. Our delicious breakfast was a special treat, especially the wickedly addicting maple bacon (as in local bacon that is baked IN local maple syrup - yup - that's a thing)! We will look forward to our next reprieve from our crazy lives...at the Marble Mansion Inn.
This inn is located right on the town green square. It is within walking distance from a lovely restaurant called the Fair Haven Inn which is perfect for dinner. We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay. We stayed on third floor. It was a nice room with a comfortable bed. The neighboring room's bathroom backed right to the wall where our headboard was. Unfortunately, the other guests were up multiple times in the night and it was sleep disrupting. Not sure how you fix that in an old house. I'd select another room next time.
Our stay at the Marble Mansion Inn was wonderful! We arrived late to see our host waiting for us! We were led to our room and was made to feel welcome. There is a beautiful front porch where we waited for friends to arrive. Breakfast was delicious with a variety of foods. And, Marble Mansion is located in a quaint little town to explore! We are planning to return!
we loved our stay at the Marble Mansion. Room was clean and we appreciate the deco, we spend the afternoon sitting outside, is was really nice. Breakfast was really goog! We would like to come back during Christmas time with our little chihuahas because it's Pet friendly!
We stayed one night and wished it was longer. The room we stayed in was nice but the bathroom was small. There wasn't anything in the room to tell you how to get on WiFi and we arrived at 10 pm so we couldn't call anyone. It was a problem because our phones had no reception there. The breakfast was incredible.. loved the Limoges China and the food was delicious.
We wish we could have stayed longer, the room was small but nice but the rest of the mansion was marvelous, more than we could have hoped. And the breakfast was exquisite, served on Limogues china. The only thing missing was background classical music during breakfast.
We are repeat guests at the beautiful Marble Mansion Inn and plan on staying there many times in the future. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are absolutely delicious and of gourmet quality and the hosts (innkeepers, chef, etc - Sharon, Greg, Theresa) are friendly and accommodating, and make every attempt to ensure a wonderful stay at their lovely inn.
We booked close to our arrival and the Pearl SNuck room was beautiful! On the third floor but so nice I didn’t mind the climb Breakfast was times to our schedule and varies by day Gracious hostess and staff
The living room and staircase at the entrance were amazing. There are very few places that have this kind of character. I stayed overnight so I could take my daughter to visit Green Mountain College and it was extremely convenient (less than ten minutes to campus). It's also close to Casleton University. The breakfast was amazing too. I'll definitely head back to Marble Mansion Inn next time I'm in the area.
My wife and I love staying at Bed and Breakfast inns when we can. Over the years our friends and business in Vermont has led us to the Marble Mansion. It is our favorite and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Greg and Sharon put their heart and soul into caring for a mansion that is a like stepping into the past. Breakfast is always something extraordinary and the inn is just magnificent. It is work the trip just to see it and taste the food. Highly recommended.
We have stayed at the Marble Mansion on two different occasions. You can't beat the character in this beautiful mansion that is being lovingly restored and cared for by a wonderful team of Innkeepers. The beds are wonderful and the breakfast cannot be beat.
This was our second stay at the Marble Mansion Inn. Our family was staying while trying to house hunt. The whole experience was somewhat stressful but Greg, Sharon and Theresa made our stay wonderful. They started by comping an adjoining room so our kids had plenty of space. Each day we had out own table together at breakfast that was thoughtfully set with our toddler in mind. Every night we were greeted and visited with Greg about our way before deciding what time would work best for breakfast. The meals are worth the stay by themselves! The rooms and Inn are loaded with character and the news provide heavenly rest.
My husband and I honeymooned for a night at the Marble Mansion Inn (which is very aptly named, as my husband commented while we pulled into the parking lot). We came through Fair Haven to stop at my family's winterized cabin that I spent my childhood summers at and my husband had never seen (and is at this this moment uninhabitable). We were traveling through VT during a cold front and it was -2 degrees when we arrived in Fair Haven. Therefore the room was drafty, particularly the bathroom, which was unpleasant but completely out of our hosts' immediate control. They outfitted the room with extra space heaters for our comfort. The real highlights of our very short stay came when we checked out of the room and joined our hosts for breakfast and had a chance to meet some of the other travelers. We were served in a beautiful glass room which despite the frigidity of the outside air was warmed by the sun. The food was incredible, freshly made and timed to be served hot. Particularly the lemon scones. The company (the hosts and a friend of their family who was traveling through) was welcoming, friendly and good humored. I enjoyed talking with them, learning about how their family came to live in and run Marble Mansion and a healthy dose of information about previous tenants and the chosen architecture. When it was time to go I wish I had had more time to sit, drink coffee and visit but we continued our trip onward to Burlington.
Welcomed by the owners, Sharon and Greg. As we toured the home, we were treated to Sharon sharing the history of the Marble Mansion Inn with us. We were shown the room we had reserved, it was well decorated and comfortable. The living room had the fireplaces going and all the Christmas decorations out. The main tree in the living room was beautiful. We went to the breakfast room which was very bright and inviting. The breakfast's that Sharon prepared were excellent. We had a very enjoyable stay and would return again.
It was our first BB experience and it was great. Loved our room and fireplace. We slept amazingly in our beds. Breakfast was delicious. So much to experience around. Hosts were great and willing to go extra mile for you.
