    I find this pretty funny because whenever I go to VT I always stay at the Old Stagecoach. I just wanted to know who else has enjoyed their awesome free breakfast and dealt with the crazy parrot and fat dog. Gotta say, that place is amazing.

    The place is awsome and the breakfast the bomb. Love being able to just walk to the bars also. The parrot has to be on something.

    Stayed there three times and really enjoyed it. Breakfast on the deck in season is a great way to start the morning. Our room was fine and they allowed our dog. It's a short walk to the former Alchemist and to Blackback. Close to Burlington and Montpelier beer destinations. My wife sent toys to Sophie, the African Grey.
  5. except for last year, I have stayed there at least once a year since the alchemist opened. I love their huevos rancheros and potato pancakes, oh, and that bacon...
  6. I have stayed there a few times. Beer geeks have got to be responsible for a large percentage of their business these days...

    I'm not normally a B&B kinda guy, but whenever I plan on overdoing in Waterbury this is a go to. Awesome breakfast for sure.

    My wife and I stayed there for the first time a couple weeks ago - decent room, great breakfast, and a priceless location. We'll be back, I'm sure.

    even if the room is a bit worn, I'll stay at a bed and breakfast or an inn anytime - better clientele. less of a chance of getting bed bugged at an an inn than a chain hotel imo.

    some people are just Holiday Inn/Best Western/Olive Garden types. whatever floats your boat.

    We're staying there again next weekend. They are soo nice they're letting us bring our dog. Inns like these are the reason we shop local. The cinnamon buns are amazing as well!

    I have stayed twice and loved it both times. Who else is in love with the Huevos Rancheros? I couldn't get them off my mind for almost a year!

    I've stayed there but don't understand the acclaim for their breakfast. There wasn't anything wrong with it but it was pretty normal food to me. Does everyone just eat crap everyday back at home?

    Was there the 3rd-5th and while the breakfast was good, I wasn't blown away. Loved bottle sharing there a couple nights with BA franklinn though. And it was great to get tanked on SS5 at blackback and stumble a couple blocks to my bed. Best place to stay while in Wayerbury IMO.
  20. Franklinn is a good guy for sure.

    Yeah it isn't epic, but waking up to a nice full breakfast after a night of awesome beers and just having to walk downstairs for it and the price of the rooms with free breakfast makes it extra special.

    I'm the "an egg's an egg" type of person when it comes to breakfast.

    Tent and $20 at Little River State Park Eggs on a pan over the fire or Ben & Jerry's for breakfast. 20x20 cabin with outlets, bunk bed and a futon for $46 I think.

    MAN UP!!!
