What a wonderful getaway for Valentine's Day...still as wonderful as the day we found it 30 years ago. The fireplace in the room was so cozy and being able to step next door to Bernard's for dinner with a piano was fabulous. Best service, too,when the innkeeper goes out of her way to drop off our forgotten bag to a... More

Fantastic Inn...really comfortable rooms, nice breakfast, incredibly helpful staff! They recommended a wonderful restaurant next door to the Inn for dinner...Bernard's was outstanding! We left one of our suitcases behind and the owner, who was heading off on vacation/closing the inn that day delayed her departure to drop it off at UPS store the next morning to ship it to... More

We were here for a wedding, the front office staff was courteous and willing to help out. The third floor walk up was OK, not great if you had a few too many bags . The room was spacious, the bathroom with complete with a bidet, whose function I had to explain to my kids. The creaky stairs and old... More

Where to begin with the praise? Should I start with the gorgeous looks of the land and neighborhood, the interior of the 1840s house (with its stunning wooden staircase and paneled walls), the view from our comfy room,, or the fall foliage we were still able to enjoy in late October? Or, perhaps with the graciousness of Mary, the hostess/manager,... More

My husband and I wanted a romantic night away from our busy lives and stayed at the West Lane Inn. The staff was very hospitable, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the heated towel rack was a nice touch. The decor is lovely and makes you feel like you've stepped back in time which is EXACTLY what we had... More

Spent a night at the West Lane Inn in Ridgefield while attending a friends wedding party. Normally these small Inns are very welcoming, not so here. Upon arrival I approached the receptionist and said good afternoon. The reply I got was..."checking in, could I have your credit card". No welcome and we hope you enjoy your stay. Pretty much the...

This beautiful old home has everything you could ask for - spacious comfortable rooms, a beautiful front porch, walking distance to the village, pretty surroundings on the large property, plenty of off street parking. The only thing I noticed was the lack of effort to make our stay special. Maybe the staff was tired from a busy week. I know... More

I had guests visiting and put them up at the West Lane Inn. They said their stay was very nice, they loved the beautiful setting, comfortable and clean rooms and the staff was very nice and accomodating. They enjoyed their walks each morning to town followed by a great breakfast on the front porch. They also had a great dinner... More

From arrival to departure horrible experience. When we called ahead we asked for a quiet room as we were exhausted, and we were told we had choice of two rooms (1st floor vs. 2nd floor) with the 2nd floor recommended. Upon arrival found that roof work was being done (on a Saturday no less) and the 2nd floor room was... More

My staff and I at the West Lane Inn are committed to making every guest's stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our roofers were only putting our gutters back, not drilling, and given specific instructions to stop work if any guests were bothered. Had we known at the time that guests were disturbed, the work would have stopped immediately. The West Lane... More

This is a comfy bed for a night or two if you're eating at Bernard's, which is literally 20 steps away. We stayed here last New Year's. Bernard's is an exceptional French restaurant with an unbelievable wine list...at very fair prices. We stay at the Inn because we don't want to drive the over-an-hour trip back to Manhattan. Only drawback... More
