Have been here before. I was disappointed that the Fitness Room is no longer on site. The staff said they would check to see if we could go to the Main Club but no one ever fooled up. The service at breakfast was terribly slow, no menus available and we had to remind the waiter continually about water, coffee, etc.... More

This is the third time my husband and I have stayed at the Hermitage Inn during the winter season. As always it was a great experience. Our room "The Willows" was very clean and spacious. We enjoyed the outdoors hot tub and the game room. Breakfast was included in our stay. I had the eggs benedict and it was fabulous.... More

Stayed at the Hermitage Inn in West Dover, VT and took a walking tour of Wilmington during our stay. The Inn was very quaint but had alot of the amenities of a much larger hotel including an outdoor hot tub! We had dinner at the Inn which was well presented, delicious and reasonably priced. After checking out we strolled the... More

We stayed at the Inn in early September 2014. It was not crowded at that time. It has much more business in winter then in the summer or fall. The developer has done an excellent job with the rooms and with the main building. It is very charming. The food is excellent. I know others have complained about the service,... More

A group of 6 of us went skiing at Haystack Mountain and then went into the hermitage inn for lunch. The restaurant is touted as being "upscale". When we walked into the restaurant there were a couple of tables seated, a few people waiting to be seated and our group of 6. There seemed to be no waitstaff or hostess... More

We stayed at the inn this past weekend .. We had some trouble when we first went to check in they couldn't find our reservations .. The general manager put us in a condo for the night and dinner was on them .. We appreciated what they did but we were still disappointed with our stay ... There was a... More

We loved our room--- CLEAN, large, and comfortable without being fussy. Great bathrooms, flat screen, gas fireplace. Thin walls but come on, it's an old inn. Bed..the most comfortable bed ever. Nice towels and linens and robes and amenities. Problems...start and end at front desk reception. As the previous review stated...this place needs a cracker jack GM...one with perhaps schooling...

The Hermitage Inn gets very high praise for vision, but has a long way to go to achieve the "exquisite luxury" experience promised. We went for a romantic mid-winter ski weekend. Our room, in the Carriage House building, was gorgeous -- comfortable and well-appointed king bed, stone hearth with gas fireplace, large flat screen TV and huge bath with tile... More

Visited the Hermitage Inn in January 2024 and stayed for one night on a trip between Canada and NYC. The Inn is in a lovely location at the foot of a mountain and offers the typical Vermont charm that I was hoping for. The room was well sized, clean and had a nice fireplace. Its not a 5* hotel but... More

Have a house nearby for 35 years and have dined at the Hermitage many times. Last night, when one of our party told our wait person that the chicken was under cooked, the manager appeared, brandishing the returned dish, stood at our table while we remained sitting and pushed the plate at the complaining diner, saying "show me where the...
