Cozy & Charming
Michael and Kevin provided a wonderful stay for our family. We stayed in the Ira Allen Suite which was great for a family of four with an exterior sitting around which gave us room to spread out. Kevin’s homemade breakfast, included with your stay, was made with local farm eggs, yogurt and other items that were obtained locally. The b&b is a quick drive into Manchester. The property is river front to the famed Battenkill River. There is a great little hike across the street in a preserve that is the result of local conservation efforts to protect the riparian zone of the Battenkill that was at one time overrun by cows from a nearby farm. So nice to bear witness to streamside conservation efforts being seen through! Go and stay, you will not be disappointed and will sense the great pride in Michael and Kevin’s labor.

Wow! What a treat— to stay in the exact same place as where Fanny Allen was born, and the Ethan/Ira Allen family took respite, does it get any better? Mike was great, very cordial and made up a delicious homemade Vermont breakfast. What a guy!

A beautifully quaint bed & breakfast! The staff were wonderfully attentive in serving homemade breakfast with ingredients sourced from local farms. Very little street noise made for a quiet stay.

Better than expected
A pleasant B and B stay in the famous Allen family house. The house is well appointed with period pieces and is exactly what you would imagine a VT B and B to be. The breakfast was great, our room was very comfy and we had a good night's sleep.

We had a wonderful time at the Ira Allen house. We felt like in a time capsule. Mike and Kevin put so much thought in decorating each corner of the house and creating a wonderful atmosphere. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was amazing every morning.

My wife and I decided to get away at the last minute looking for a break in the routine. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in with warm Christmas cookies, a lovely sitting room with a fire and a comfortable room with its own working fireplace. Breakfast also amazing with locally sourced organic ingredients and excellent service. We'll certainly plan on visiting again and highly recommend the Ira Allen Inn!
