Our children gave us a getaway for Christmas to the Dorset Inn. Due to the horrible parade of storms in Boston this winter we were unable to travel the 3.5 hours to the inn until March. It was worth every minute of the pretty drive!!!! The historic village of Dorset set the tone with the quaint white and green homes... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Dorset Inn before and the experience is always excellent. The staff truly love their jobs and it shows in their work. The tavern is the best place to enjoy a cocktail by the fireplace. We always eat in the tavern and the food is always exquisite. We already have our next stay... More

We have stayed there many times before moving to the area, and loved it. The location is quiet and very close to hiking, skiing, shopping in Manchester, or whatever you like to do. They were gay-friendly and best of all, the food was AMAZING. Breakfast is included, and we ate outside in the summer. We still have dinner there about... More

The Dorset Inn is an amazing experience. Love the location, close to skiing, hiking, swimming the quary, shopping, etc... . Year round fun to be had. I think it is more suitable for couples or adults travelling but if you have kids, check out their sister property, Barrows House as there are more units which can hold families. The breakfast...

We spent two wonderful night ski getaway at the Dorset Inn with a Living Social coupon. Because of weather and other issues, we needed to change our arrival date a couple of times, and each time Kathy handled it with apleasant attitude and good humor. Upon arrival we were upgraded from a standard room to a suite, a pleasant surprise.... More

We were dissatisfied with our stay last year but tried to give the Inn a 2nd chance this past Jan and decided we will not return. The primary reason is the rudeness of the woman who handles the morning check-outs. The second reason is the cleaning staff. The "do not disturb" signs available to hang on the doors are irrelevant... More

My husband and I just returned home to Syracuse, NY from a two night stay at the Dorset Inn. Already we're talking about what we'll do when we come back. We definitely will stay at the Dorset Inn again for starters. The staff, especially Kathy, made our time there so pleasant and catered to our every need. We even received... More

Built in 1786 and still has the characteristics of that age, but all the modern and enjoyable comfort of home. Choice of restaurant or tavern for meals. We chose the sit back and relax atmosphere of the tavern where we enjoyed a great meal at the bar with the very enjoyable Tom, the bartender. The place was busy in mid-week... More

Perhaps I am at the age when I am starting to repeat myself, or maybe I just cannot say enough about the Dorset Inn. This past weekend we returned "home" to the Dorset Inn. The moment we walked in, the tension dropped from our shoulders and the smiles filled our faces. Kathy, the ultimate Inn Keeper greeted us with her... More

We have been staying at the Dorset Inn with our dogs for over 20 years. We love it all year long. There is always something interesting to do in the area, great food, comfortable attractive rooms and friendly staff. Now that we are retired we like to take advantage of the mid-week specials. Our younger son introduced us to Dorset... More
