    About the B&B

    The Comstock House - Plinfield, VermontPerched high in the hills east of Vermont's capital city of Montpelier and northeast of Barre, the granite capital of the world, sits The Comstock House. Panoramic views abound-Camel's Hump, Lincoln Peak, Hunger Mountain. The rolling hills, open pastures, farms, barns, and forested slopes of central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom stretch to the horizon. Built in 1891 by dairy farmer Charles Comstock, the gracious farmhouse has been completely renovated to house an inviting bed and breakfast. Enjoy the scenery over a homemade breakfast or from your room as the sun is setting. Wander down to the pasture and listen to the baaahing of the lambs. Or make The Comstock House your home-away-from-home while attending one of the programs of Goddard College.

    You may come just for the sunsets. Framed by the beauty of the mountains and the crispness of the air, there are a multitude of spots around the farm to sit, relax and enjoy the spectacle every evening. The sunrises are spectacular, too, if you're an early riser!

    "Thank you both so much for another wonderful stay-our third here with you both-each year it just gets better and better." J, R &D, England

    The Comstock House is your dream getaway planted in an absolutely spectacular Vermont setting. The former 1891 farmhouse in Plainfield, Vermont, is now an inviting bed and breakfast. Your home-away-from-home sits at 1300? at the crest of a hill, commanding an amazing panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. It'll be hard to leave once you're here.

    Every morning features a homemade breakfast served in the dining room or, weather permitting, on the deck overlooking the view.

    Each room offers private quarters as well as private baths.

    The Comstock House is surrounded by the farms of central Vermont but it's still an easy drive from Burlington, Boston, Hartford, New York, and Montreal. World-renowned Goddard College is just down the hill. Convenient to Interstate 89, The Comstock House is just 10 minutes from Barre and 20 minutes from Montpelier.

    And The Comstock House has got just what you're seeking in a quality B&B: super-comfortable beds, generous-sized rooms, private baths, complimentary wireless internet. Whether you enjoy hiking, skiing, bicycling, antiquing, sightseeing, snowshoeing or just relaxing with a good book, your stay is sure to be a special one. 

  • Breakfast

    Enjoy A Delicious Breakfast Each MorningEvery morning starts with a homemade breakfast. We proudly serve our own naturally raised, farm-fresh eggs. The menu changes daily, and with notice prior to arrival, we are able to accommodate most dietary requests. We're always adding new favorites to the menu, such as apple clafouti, salsa soufle or cherry corn scones. And we offer plenty of our own homemade delights, including granola, breads, and our Vermont Farm Show blue ribbon-winning strawberry jam.

    "It is absolutely beautiful here, inside and out. I can't wait to come again. Thank you for your hospitality and delicious breakfast. Hope to be back soon." D&C, Connecticut

  • Your Hosts

    Warren Hathaway and Ross Sneyd are your innkeepers at The Comstock House. Kayla serves as the pretty, shy co-host. Warren and Ross opened The Comstock House in 2005 after about a year and a half of renovations. Ross is a wealth of information about Vermont. As a journalist, he's written about the people, places and politics of the state for nearly 20 years and is passionate about this special corner of the world. Warren has trained at a European-style bakery. He is a clinical social worker and works at a community health center part-time. Kayla has spent more than eight years pursuing squirrels, woodchucks and other critters, and the last couple years, enthusiastically announcing guests' arrivals. Besides running the bed and breakfast, Warren and Ross raise sheep, make jams and soaps, and love to garden. They also enjoy hiking (ask us about hiking Spruce Peak), kayaking, bicycling, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.

    "Thank you for another restful stay. Great hosts, great room, great food!" G, Canada

  • Your Visit

    Plainfield is centrally located so many points of interest are an easy drive away. Things other guests often see while staying include Ben and Jerry's, the Cabot Cheese tour and store, downtown Montpelier's wonderful shops, Northfield Falls' covered bridges, Lake Champlain, the view from the top of Spruce Mountain (right in Plainfield), The Country Bookshop (for a great selection of aniquarian books), Grand View Winery, Cold Hollow Apple Cider stand, and Morse Farm (for maple syrup and creemees). Some guests in nice weather just enjoy relaxing out back while watching the lambs grazing. Regardless of your interests or the season you visit, you'll find something to keep you active.
