Last weekend I stayed at The Gazebo Inn while visiting my daughter at Middlebury. Donna is amazing! She is so warm and welcoming that you truly feel like a family friend. Breakfast was delicious and so plentiful! Donna also leaves out wonderful snacks. The home is very clean and comfortable. Loved waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking. I...

It was a great weekend with such interesting guests, esp. when they came from all over the world and from various parts of country. Certainly having you and your daughter visit was part of that fun experience. Please come again!

Donna was a welcoming Innkeeper. She has a true interest in the people who stay at her Inn. We were welcomed with nice treats, and we had a delicious breakfast there as well. My husband and I walked to the town of Brandon for dinner. Donna actually went to the restaurant and delivered an umbrella to us because it looked...

Glad you enjoyed your stay at our New England B&B. You and your husband added so much to the lively discussions among ourselves and the other guests. Thinking of another bike excursion in Vermont with your family? Would love to host you again.

Just spent a week in Brandon and stayed at The Gazebo Inn. It was a great visit as usual! The breakfasts are delicious and nicely served. There is plenty of parking. The town of Brandon offers a lot of sightseeing opportunities.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. It isn't summer without your visit. I so enjoy hosting you all. One of the benefits of having returning guests, of course, is the challenge of creating new treats to serve. I'm already viewing my cookbook library for next year!

Having a Bed & Breakfast as my 'home' for the week was made even more perfect by the fantastic personality of Donna Taylor and her Gazebo Inn. The Inn is charming and truly feels like home. Once Donna opened the door with her cheery welcome, took us to our very comfortable rooms, and then provided us with her fabulous breakfasts...

It is always good to have guests that immediately feel comfortable around our large, family-style dining room table that can fit 10. Meeting and greeting other travelers is always fun. We are located on the main street in Brandon which vehicular traffic does use. I look forward to a future visit if you again decide to attend The Country Owl...

My family took a biking trip last week in the Champlain Valley. We couldn't have been luckier than to have Donna Taylor's Gazebo Inn be our last stop. Our teenage daughter wasn't feeling well when we arrived early, and Donna immediately helped make her comfortable. The place is warm, clean, and comfortable and Donna makes you feel very welcome. She...

It is always a delight to host students who are attending The Country Owl Studio courses. Without fail they are talented, interesting guests who are always gracious and share their myriad interests.

After a three year absence, we were once again able to stay at the Gazebo Inn. Once again, Donna has been busy upgrading the outdoor areas and the results are lovely! Indoors, the ambiance and food are as good as ever. Staying with Donna is such a relaxing experience. We can't let it be so long next time!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cozy elegance is experienced at this National Historic Register 1860s home. Located just north of town our B&B provides relaxation on a private property displaying a variety of perennial gardens. Architecture is that of the classic New England Federal style. Decor is that of distinctively combined Victorian furnishings with contemporarily-crafted pieces reflecting refinement yet comfortableness. All guest rooms boast private bath, AC, fine linens, featherbeds, down comforters, hairdryers, and robes. Breakfasts are known as having sumptuous -- but healthy -- offerings.Summer guests enjoy reading on the screened porch, the gazebo, or on one of the several patios. Winter guests can snowshoe or XC ski down our back hill, enjoy a roaring fire in the library, or relax in the reading alcove. In the fall you'll be leaf peeping, but our porch is for 3 seasons so put your feet up and enjoy our array of refreshments while viewing our multi-colored trees.Brandon's downtown -- with its eateries, art galleries, unique shops, and old-fashioned ice cream parlor -- are but a stroll away. WiFi and HD TV with DVD player and Nexflix connection are provided. We are perfectly located for a vacation stay; i.e., The Stephen A. Douglas Museum and town Tourist Center is but a few doors down; hiking/XC skiing are a ride up the mountain; swimming on beautiful Lake Dunmore is even a shorter jaunt; bike rentals can be delivered to enjoy a variety of cycling routes, including to Brandon's nearby covered bridge or a bit longer trip to Lake Champlain.Discounts available for learning vacations in the traditional arts and for the Cafe Provence Cooking School, full-house rentals, and summer multi-day stays. Children and families welcomed. ... more   less
