The Maplecroft Bed & Breakfast is a truly charming, luxurious Barre lodging. The stately, Victorian home was built in 1887 by Scotsman George Mackenzie. He had traveled with his family to Barre and was well established within the granite business community. Though he loved Barre, Maplecroft’s architecture is complete with a circular tower, reminiscent of castles in Scotland. Today’s features include two suites and three rooms, one of which is located within the tower. Though the manor is over a century old, it comes with all modern conveniences. The furniture and décor is elegant and inviting, providing an almost regal atmosphere. Rest up in one of the comfortable rooms before enjoying a fresh, homemade breakfast.
Though the Quality Inn may be a nationwide chain, the Barre location feels like a boutique hotel. Stay in one of the comfortable rooms or suites, which are complete with queen sized beds, desks, flat screen televisions, lounge chairs, microwaves, a mini fridge, and bright, lime green accent walls. There is a spacious dining room to enjoy a free continental breakfast, perfect for mingling with other guests.
Family-owned for nearly 45 years, the Twin City Motel offers visitors an affordable stay and warm hospitality. Twin City is made up of rooms and cottages. The hotel owners are very accommodating and provide complimentary coffee and tea in the mornings. There are benches in front of each individual room, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, but maintain their privacy. The cottages even include private porches. Be sure to note that the rooms are exclusively non-smoking, although there are reserved smoking areas outside. Since Vermont shares a border with Canada, the staff is conveniently fluent in both English and French!
