The Fan House is a wonderful, old, warm, and authentic house. We had expected to stay in Woodstock for a few days, but found that every place was booked. Best thing that could happen to us. We found The Fan House in nearby Barnard. Owner Sara Widness was very welcoming and her home could not be more comfortable. Breakfasts were... More

The Fan House is a comfortable and pretty place to stay in Barnard. Within walking distance to the lake and the general store, this B and B's charms lie in the history of the home, the eclectic collections of books, paintings, and decorative objects in every room; and the lovely lady who runs it. We stayed in the well-outfitted King... More

Beautiful bed & breakfast, very New-England style. Full of artworks. The room was very comfortable. Very peaceful setting. Well maintained garden. The owner, Sara, was wonderful. She gave good advices, cooked tasteful breakfasts and was of a great help when needed, espacially when we realised we were missing something for the ceremony.

We recently stayed at Fan House B&B for two nights throughout our long weekend journey to middle Vermont. This is an excellent location if you seek an accommodation close to Woodstock VT, but removed from the tourist traffic. Within walking distance of the location is a state park that offers kayak and canoe rentals and opportunities to swim in the... More

Wonderful stay last weekend in VT. Sara was very welcoming and helpful. Immediately upon arrival, she asked if we had dinner plans, and when we said no, made a suggestion and then called and got us reservations nearby. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was quite nice.

Sara went above and beyond in taking care of us at our stay. She set up an excellent trekking adventure on snowshoes with John, had warm fires burning and great meals prepared, even for our very early morning departure (had to beat out the next snowstorm). Beds were super comfortable. We love the decor and it was fun talking about... More

My hubby took me here for my b-day, so we could marvel at the rich fall colors of the highways of Vermont. Sara's house is a place where as soon as you enter the main door you are welcome with a sophisticated yet warm- two kisses on the cheek greeting. Since we flew from Portland on a red-eye to NY,...

We stayed at the Fan House for four nights at the end of August and felt: This was the place we wanted to be in.

Sara made our stay in Barnard so amazingly comfortable. The room in The Fan House really felt like a retreat and the meals on the patio were lovely and delicious. I also liked talking with Sara about goings-on around town. It was so nice to have beach towels available so we could walk down to the lake.. or just stroll... More

My wife and I travelled from Connecticut to relax for three kid-free days. We couldn't have found a better place. The quiet town, the beautiful house and gardens, and the best breakfasts we've had in years, combined with the friendly hospitality offered by Sarah, all made for a perfect 10 getaway. Another couple had been there for two weeks when... More
