My wife and I stayed at the Lodge over Valentines Day Weekend this past winter. We booked a room with a wood burning fireplace at an extra cost only to find that we weren't allowed to have a fire in the fireplace and that we weren't entitled to a refund for the fireplace option. The weekend was nice; the food... More

We thought from the description that we would have a nice, safe place to leave our dog while we explored the area, but the "Luxury Kennels" were largely unmaintained and borderline health hazards for humans, let alone our pet. Apparently no one ever cleans the indoor dog run. The sleeping room was decent (but not for the price). The rest... More

Myself and my husband spent a weekend here to do the Green mountain challenge. This was during the low season in Vermont as it is a ski area. The hotel was very quiet as expected and consequently we got upgraded to a suite. The room was very nicely decorated in a style that suits the surroundings. Sandy who runs the... More

We stayed at Layla's in April 2014 and enjoyed it very much. The hosts were very welcoming and willing to accommodate us in every way. The room was comfortable and the Inn was very dog-friendly. Even Layla (for whom the inn is named) welcomed us and liked to lie near the table while we were eating breakfast. The food in... More

What a great stay! My husband and I booked the trip along with our 7 month old and our four legged pal. We were so happy we could take our dog with us because we feel so guilty leaving him behind. We thought it was weird we were the only ones who booked for that week but it was actually... More

My family and I only went here on a whim from a guest at Mt Snow who raved about the food. The restaurant was BYOB which was perfect for us (and saves money). The food is OUT OF THIS WORLD! We loved our dinner which included NY strip steak, duck, and a venison ravioli. The dessert fondu and maple cheesecake... More

Had to board our 10 year old retriever for three days and I couldn't be more satisfied with the service. Would certainly use them again without hesitation. My sister-in-law has also used their kennel services with the same result.

Layla's Riverside Lodge is simply the best. I've been staying here for 3 years now and every time I've been I have received spectacular hospitality and have created outstanding memories.
