Enjoy Mountain Views, Privacy & the Comforts of Home

Take in the splendor of Vermont's countryside as you relax in the quiet comfort and privacy of our well-appointed guesthouse. Sweet Retreat is nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains, just five miles from Interstate 89 and from downtown Northfield, home to five covered bridges, a golf course, and Norwich University, the oldest private military school in the country. It is fifteen minutes south of the capital city of Montpelier, forty-five minutes from Sugarbush, Bolton Valley, and Stowe, and an hour from Burlington International Airport.

You will find our spacious guesthouse equipped with everything you need to stay two days, a week, a month or more!

A house-keeping unit, meals are prepared by guests at their leisure. To get you started, we stock the kitchen with breakfast fixings for your first morning meal. And, enjoy complimentary maple syrup from our Sugarhouse during short-term stays. There is a full service grocery store in town along with a coffee shop, a pizzeria, a Subway, a brew pub, and Chinese take-out. There are also several nice restaurants within 15-20 minutes of the guesthouse in Randolph, Barre, and Montpelier.
