Breakfast time and was blown away by breakfast. Firstly, organic hand made yoghurt with a pumpkin purée in the centre with pecans and a bit of granola but the best part was the little drops of cider reduction, a bit like vino cotto, but apples. I am so going to try to make this back home. It was amazing. Secondly, baked oatmeal from 12 grains, organic of course, topped with his own ...

... Rules - no drinking in the rooms but we could buy a drink at the bar downstairs or drink water, coffee etc. for free. Got the bags up and went out for dinner at the Woodstock Inn and Resort's Tavern. It looked expensive but was quite okay. I had the crab cakes burger and Rod had fish and chips. Only 1 glass of wine each as it was expensive wine. Cost $67.00 for dinner. Drove back which wasn't far. Dinner at the woodstock inn and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Paw House Inn West Rutland

    Loved the Paw House!


    We stayed at the Paw House for 3 nights and it was wonderful! Our room (the Chase) was cozy and comfortable, and our dog loved the bed. The service is very perosnal, which was nice. At check-in we only had 2 towels but they immeasiately gave us more when they realized it. Upon arrival, the owners gave us a tour of the property which was very well kept (no dog poop or anyhting on grounds, a nice forest to walk your dog towards the back of the property.)

    A BIG Disappointment!


    The Paw House Inn is fine if you have low expectations and deep pockets. We really thought this was a place that catered to dogs, yet everything seemed to be a hassle and an obstacle. See points below:

    A great time, never disappointed!


    We have stayed at the Paw House on numerous occasions and have loved every visit! This place is charming! The innkeepers are welcoming and warm, the Inn itself cozy, clean and beautiful. More important, it's a place to bring our dogs where they welcomed. They love the play area where they meet and romp with their new found friends. Vermont is dog friendly so we sometimes take the dogs with us but on the occasions when we have left them in "Mario's playhouse", they have been taken for walks and very well cared for, with notes left by their caretakers. We have always felt at ease knowing we can leave them there and they are very safe and loved. It's awesome being able to have the dogs stay with us in the room!

    We Loved It !


    The Paw House Inn is a great place to bring your dog, and yourselves. Mitch (the owner) always seems to have a big smile and plates of delicious food in his hands. The other guests were all dog-lovers, of course, and were relaxed and friendly. Our Aussie, Sasha, is a bit shy, but she was made to feel as welcome as we were. We stayed in "Shakespeare's retreat", which was cozy and "homey"-feeling, and just right for our Mom, Dad, boy and dog family.



    I was almost dissuaded from going to this inn because of a comment I read previously on this site. Other than taking a three day trip to Vermont with our son Charlie (read, beagle) my wife and I did not know what to expect and we "hoped for the best". What we got exceeded our expectations in every way. The inn is not extravagant in the way you might want a B&B to be but the place CATERS TO DOGS. Extravagance would be wasted. The inn IS beautiful, well maintained, comfortable, and appropriate. Who needs the knick-knacks and fancy antiques? The key was that we could take our dog with us and be comfortable. The owners are warm and engaging, the breakfasts excellent, and the locatioin was ideal. Another great aspect of the place was the fact that we enjoyed the company of other guests and nobody sneered at us because we had our dog. That is what we usually get with "pet friendly" places. But most important The Paw House provided us with a tremendous amount of peace of mind. If you are a dog owner you should not miss this place.

    What to expect at The Paw House Inn


    We just came back from staying at The Paw House Inn (Aug 12-14). We expected something a little more plush but still managed to have a great time, we will defnitely be back. Here are some things you should know about the Paw House Inn:

    Not At All What You Might Hope For


    The location is excellent; the breakfast is very good. Those two comments sum up the only positives about the Paw House Inn. I had had a previous experience at another dog-catering inn and so was anticipating an enjoyable trip once again. I couldn't have been more wrong or disappointed.

    Paw House Inn - Pathetic


    Prior to my experience with the Paw House Inn, I have never had a bad experience with a "dog-friendly" Inn. These people should never have been licensed in the first place, if indeed they are. They have lousy service, no phones, no locks on doors, the mangers are rude and have a list of rules a mile long. They say "Mario's Playhouse" is where dogs are kept when the dog owners leave the premises. It is actually just a kennel. We went there with the dogs to avoid a kennel. It is a mess.

    Applause for the Paws


    Not only are the innkeepers genuinely sweet and personable, the inn is very comfortable and clean. The peace of mind that you have while leaving your dogs in their care....priceless. Breakfast was over the moon delicious, and I'm not really a breakfast fan. I would highly recommend this warm and cozy retreat to anyone who travels with their beloved animals. You won't be disappointed. The Careys

    Four Paws Up


    Great place to stay with your dog. The inn keepers are very low key and friendly. Delicious breakfast, comfortable rooms with a special dog bed for your pup. We love traveling with our dog and although some places let you bring your dog, you can't leave them in the room. Although you don't leave your dog in the room here, there is an on site kennel, dog run and caregivers for your dog when you go out skiing for the day or just out for dinner. Fun hiking trails on the property. Loved it.
