Very quaint B&B located in the heart of Dorset, a beautiful storybook town. The innkeepers were like visiting grandma & grandpa house. They make you feel right at home. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Prices extremely reasonable. It even has several sitting rooms, one with a fireplace; and a kitchenette stocked with cold drinks or hot tea & coffee.... More

My husband and I have been going to Dorset, VT for twenty years. We returned last Friday from a three night stay at the Dovetail Inn. We currently have two Border Terriers and have stayed with our dogs in all the dog friendly accommodations in Dorset. The Inn keepers Jean and Jim are very knowledgeable about the area and are...

We spent three nights at the Dovetail Inn in Dorset,VT over the 4th of July weekend. The inn sits across from the Dorset Green on Rte. 30. It is ideally located for anyone planning to attend a show at the Dorset Playhouse. While not as upscale as its neighbors, The Dorset Inn and The Barrows House, it offers location, location,... More

Reasonable rate, especially for a holiday weekend. Friendly innkeepers. Cute, although lackluster "downtown" area right outside the door. Great launching pad for trips to Manchester and the surrounding area. No need to pay excessively high prices at fancier locations. Room was a good size, simple but comfortable. Would return.

The Dovetail Inn provides a great location for exploring a very picturesque area of Vermont, loaded with quaint villages, natural beauty, beautiful streams, great swimming holes, fine dining and most of all - relaxation when you want it. Jean & Jim Kingston do a great job of pampering to the needs of their guests. The rooms are spacious and well... More

We stayed a night in Dorset at the Dovetail Inn. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, had a flat screen TV that we did not turn on and free wi fi. The innkeepers, Jim and Jean were incredibly hospitable. When Jean learned I was unable to contact the restaurant to confirm the evening's reservation, she called the place for... More

Although we had to cancel our two reservawtions because of medical reasons there was no hesitation in returning our deposit. While making our reservation Jean gave us many tips about what to do in the area. Both she and Jim have a great sense of humor. We look forward to staying with them in the future.
