Vermont Public Radio held our annual board of directors retreat at the Grafton Inn in spring 2016 and we were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. The staff are exceptionally accommodating, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the meeting and dining rooms were perfect for our needs. The town of Grafton provided a beautiful and peaceful setting for walks and for reflective thinking that facilitated thoughtful and generative conversations. We’ll definitely be back!

Robin Turnau, Vermont Public Radio, President & CEO

We booked a fifteen-person overnight leadership retreat at the Grafton Inn in late October and all members unanimously agreed it was a tremendous hit. Our plan was to get some timely strategic planning done in a sequestered environment that would offer us refreshing walks and relationship-building breaks in the Vermont countryside. Everything from the well-appointed meeting rooms, charming overnight accommodations, delicious meals, welcoming parlors and sitting areas to the magnificent trails and property surroundings, far exceeded our expectations. We were all very grateful for the incredibly gracious staff and for the chance to experience a truly quintessential Vermont Inn experience, while having the space and support to think clearly and do efficient work. Thank you to all at the Grafton Inn!

Barbi Schulick, New Chapter, Co-Founder

The Grafton Inn was a wonderful location for our annual meeting and retreat. Our members said it was the “best ever” and “like being in a postcard”. Accommodations were stellar, the food delicious and attentive to various individual needs and the service was impeccable. Staff gave the right balance of attentiveness and leaving us alone so we could focus on our work. All in a quaint Vermont setting! What more could any group want? I enthusiastically recommend the Grafton Inn to host your next event.
