Reviews of Canterbury Inn

I am a friend or relative of a resident
As family legend has it my Aunt Bonnie spent a week in New York City and came home a different person. A year later my Aunt Bonnie moved to Vermont and refused to ever set foot in Pennsylvania ever again,and for my whole childhood my Aunt would call and send us letters, but never once visited. Out of nowhere my Aunt suffered a heart attack and shortly thereafter a stroke and needed care. I offered to let my aunt stay with us, but she refused. My aunt was living in a little town called Plainfield, Vermont halfway between St. Johnsbury and Montpelier. I made the 9 hour drive to Central Vermont Hospital and asked my aunt what she wanted and she said Canterbury Inn in St. Johnsbury. I drove the hour to St. Johnsbury and I was delighted with what a saw. Canterbury Inn wasn't at all like a traditional nursing home facility that I was use to in PA, it was much better. While the place doesn't have all of the "things" that an assisted living center in a city would have, the place smelled wonderful, the staff seemed very cheerful as did all of the residents. Best of all my Aunt got to stay in her beloved Vermont. Sadly, my aunt died only 2 weeks into her stay as she had another heart attack, but I am comforted by the wonderful care given by Canterbury Inn.
