The Fan House plans to re-open sometime in mid May when the weather will be warm enough to allow breakfasts to be served outside. The use of the public areas, i.e. dining room and living room, will be limited as long as the pandemic is an issue. But the gardens and seating areas outdoors welcome guests to leave their rooms and to enjoy the beauty of Vermont. The resident innkeeper has received her vaccinations but will still practice all pandemic-related protocols for as long as recommended.
"If you're searching for an authentic inn in the heart of a textbook Vermont town, consider this Colonial dating to 1840. The guest rooms put together by Sara Widness, an expert on luxury travel and a poet to boot, are adorned with tapestries, antique rugs, claw-foot tubs, comfortable sofas, and old bed frames supporting mattresses bedecked with soft linens and a mountain of pillows—it may sound all a bit much, but Sara supplies romantic style while avoiding clichés. As an ensemble her three accommodations, along with the living-room hearth, the kitchen's old wood-burning stove, and the library nook, create a real sense of home."
