Reminisce

To travel these three thousand miles and met someone who grew up in my neighborhood over 5 decades ago is amazing. The reminiscing of common memories was wonderful. Thank you for accepting us.

Restful, delicious, engaging

As always, my time at the Fan House has been restful, delicious and full of engaging conversation. You are an artful and thoughtful host who manages the balance between giving your guests privacy and making them feel welcome and home. I look forward to my next visit.

Lovely, relaxing time

Thank you so much for a lovely, relaxing time at the Fan House. We wish we could stay a couple more nights! The Fan House is just as magical as we remembered and we are so looking forward to our next stay. Until then …

Family warmth we all long for

It’s not often you go away form a B&B feeling treated like royalty yet with the kind of family warmth we all long for. Thank you for making us feel special.

4th visit in 7 years

It was 2003 when we first came to The Fan House. We were here for our first wedding anniversary and knew this was a special place. Now it’s our 4th visit in 7 years; it’s always great to see you. We look forward to many more visits in the future. Our best to you and your family.

Clean and Comfortable

We had an incredible time at your B&B. This is the first time we’ve felt clean and comfortable at a B&B, even a hotel. Thank you so much for everything. We will recommend your inn to all and write great reviews for you! P.S. The Bulgari shampoo smelled amazing!

Old Family

What a beautiful house you have here! My family and I lived here 30 years ago! My parents, sister and brother moved to Vermont when I was 14/15 years old. We lived in this house for one year. A lot is the same … and you have improved it dramatically.

A Kindred Spirit

Thank you so much for everything. Finding this place was perfect. Even though it was last minute and what I needed was a shower & bed, you made it seem like I was part of your family. I enjoyed my stay very much and will be back in Sept for my friend’s wedding. I will be staying here again and look forward to you seeing you and Millie’s (a temporary rescue dog) smiling faces and warm hearts. You are a kindred spirit, and this was the best place to find on accident. See you soon.

Staying with family

We have enjoyed our stay here immensely. Your home is very cozy. We felt as if we were staying with family. We enjoyed our journey up to Montreal and Burlington, VT. Best of luck to the town of Barnard as they recover from the Hurricane (Irene). This is a lovely, quaint town that provides a great safe haven to travelers escaping their corporate lives. All the best.

From Australia

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us for a two-night stay. We appreciated greatly your hospitality in collecting us from the Lebanon airport and taking us to pick up our car for the beginning of our VT/NH leg of the trip. It has been wonderful to meet you and mingle with fellow travelers and swap stories over the fire at night. Best wishes, all the way from Australia.

Restored Memories

I so enjoy this home away from home. You helped restore a lot of memories of Vermont for me. And I was so inspired to get such a good start on my screen play. Thank you so much for conspiring with my daughter for my 65th. We are looking forward to visit again.

A Nourishing Experience

What a gift to be here – a peaceful sanctuary for our “girlfriend getaway”. We only had 24 hours but we both feel so renewed and relaxed. The food, the art, your hospitality all made this a nourishing experience. We hope to return.
