Gillian met us with outstanding hospitality. The room was fine, the bed good, and we could use her extra living-room as we pleased (or the garden). It is obvious that Gillian is ambitious when it comes to hostessing.

The hospitality , food, and comfort were wonderful. Even the family dogs were great to meet. Newfane is a bucolic, classic New England town. I was only there for a wedding weekend, so I can't vouch for attractions, groceries, or restaurants in Newfane.

We loved our stay with Gillian! Her home is conveniently located about 30 minutes from Stratton Ski Resort. We were warmly welcomed by Gillian and her two adorable and friendly jack russell terriers upon our arrival. The bedroom was nice and we had the sitting room to ourselves, complete with a toasty fireplace. The bathroom was very clean and the bathtub had Jacuzzi jets. Gillian was a wonderful host! She was so kind and interesting to talk with. She also was very helpful with providing information about the area. Gillian provided a continental breakfast of cereal, croissants, muffins, strawberries, and coffee. One of the highlights of our trip was eating breakfast while watching the many beautiful birds in Gillian's backyard. Highly recommend!!

Hello! We are former innkeepers (West River Lodge and Gillian's Guest House) who are both retired professors, and are happy to now open our new home to guests and also invite you to stay at our old house around the corner. We would love to provide information about our beautiful West River Valley in Southern Vermont, and will share our knowledge of antiques, travel, food, culture, science and anything else you have a passion for.
We are the owners of two friendly Jack Russel terriers at our new home, with a separate living room for guests, complete with a wifi, fireplace and cable tv. Our library has a wide range of books from classics to currents if you feel like curling up in front of the fire with a good book, or experience intense bird activity from our dining room window. Our other house was formerly run as Gillian's Guest House but is now available in it's entirety for anyone who would like a quiet, spacious and relaxing place to get away from it all. Both houses are close to skiing...Stratton, Bromley and Mount Snow are all about a 1/2 hours' drive. Also nearby you'll have hiking, biking, antiquing, art and exploring all Vermont has to offer. We are close to fine dining at the Four Columns Inn, as well as casual fare at Rick's Tavern, and Brattleboro is a short 15 minutes away. While we can't accommodate your pets, we are child friendly.
