When you arrive you’ll immediately be drawn to windows in your room to take in the breathtaking panoramic mountain views. The Green Mountains, rolling hills, open pastures, farms, and barns of central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom stretch to the horizon.
Built in 1891 by dairy farmer Charles Comstock, this gracious farmhouse has been completely renovated to make your stay extra comfortable. Immaculate, large rooms with two arm chairs, private en-suite baths, in-room refrigerators and complimentary wi-fi make the Comstock House perfect for pleasure or business travel.
You can enjoy the scenery from the dining room over a leisurely breakfast or in the evening from your room as the sun sets behind the mountains. On clear nights without a bright moon you may stay out for spectacular star-gazing (have you seen the milkyway lately?) If you wander down to the pasture you can listen to the baaahing of the lambs in spring and summer.
The Comstock House’s picture-perfect setting makes it a great choice for smaller weddings and anniversary celebrations.

“Thank you both so much for another wonderful stay—our third here with you both—each year it just gets better and better.” J, R &D, England
You have the choice of the Meadow Room on the first floor, a corner room surrounded by the views, with a private bath. Or try the Mountain Room on the second floor, also overlooking the scenery, which has a corner bedroom, and a spacious private bathroom with a clawfoot tub. The master’s room, the Comstock Room, is our most spacious and faces east, south, and west. It has a library table and the private bath also has a clawfoot tub. If you’re traveling with family or friends, you might want to book the Comstock Suite which adds the Shepherd’s room with two twin beds.

The Comstock House is perfect for relaxation because of it’s quiet setting and small size. It’s also great for sightseeing because it’s centrally located and a few minutes from Vermont’s capitol city. You can enjoy bicycling, strolling, hiking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Just ask for directions to some of the region’s top attractions: Stowe, Sugarbush, Burke Mountain, the Vermont Statehouse, the granite quarries, and Ben & Jerry’s. There’s fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and skating all nearby.
And, central Vermont has some of the best restaurants around. Ask and we’ll share some of our favorites.
