||Whether you are staying in the Manor House or the Carriage
House, the Great Room (a large living room), the Music Room,
and the Parlor Room (a media room featuring television, DVD
movies, and some video games), are Common Rooms for all
guests. Admire the elegance of the late Victorian period as
seen in the hand-carved cherry and bird's eye maple woodwork,
the beautifully embossed tin ceilings, the stained glass windows,
and the original overhead beams.
|In the Great Room you will find a selection of books from our
personal libraries for your reading pleasure. Make selections
at your leisure, and return them before check-out. In the Game
Corner you will find puzzles and table games; card tables are
available as well, if needed for additional gaming. At times we
will run board game competitions, if enough are interested.
And should chess be your game, we have that as well!
The Music Room is a quiet area for reading if no musical activities are taking place.
We offer instruction in piano, voice, and music theory (at the
going rates for private lessons). Performances of chamber
music will be scheduled there, in addition to Folk and Celtic
music. See the Front Desk for a schedule of events.
The Formal Dining Room is available for big card games or
large group gaming. Speak to an Innkeeper if additional
seating is required.
||The Parlor/Media Room features HD-TV with cable TV, DVD, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii. Please remember
that we are a Family-Friendly Inn; no inappropriate movies
or games are permitted. We are concerned for the
welfare of your children, and ours!
Please inquire at the front desk for a list of available
movies and games.
Our outdoor pool is available seasonally, weather permitting. Sunbathe beside the pool, surrounded by ancient birches and riotous flowers against a backdrop of meadows and forested mountains.
The Silas Griffith Inn has large, shady porches where you can rock or sit, read or knit, or simply enjoy bird and/or people watching.
|In the Autumn, the mountains above us become vibrant with color as the leaves change with the season. In the mood for a walk? Meander through the village of Danby and browse the local stores, or climb our rolling meadows. There are many hiking trails throughout the mountains nearby. In the mood for Winter sports? We are located just minutes from the ski areas of Killington, Stratton and Bromley. For an offroad adventure, Danby has miles of snow-mobiling trails for winter fun.
For a special treat we have
two scrolling panoramas:
