our word for it...

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!

We chose The Grafton Inn as our venue for the past three Board of Directors meetings which are held in Vermont every November.  The Inn is perfect for our group, with rooms that are historic but with modern amenities.  Our meeting is typically a mix of business and pleasure and the Inn offers just the right setting with a cozy reception/dining area, fabulous food, convenient meeting space and attention to detail that is unmatched.  The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate every request; this year they even made sure that we had a TV to watch our NE Patriots on Sunday night football!  We highly recommend the Grafton Inn as the perfect place to host your next business/board meeting.

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.
