We had a wonderful stay at the Windham Hill Inn. The setting is unspoilt and quiet, nestled in the Green Mountains. The ambiance is very relaxed but with impeccable service from the whole team. There are lots of tracks in the large grounds for a challenging run or more gentle hike. We have stayed in many Relais et Chateaux over... More

Quite excellent place to stay, beautiful location and Katja the innkeeper in fantastic. For the first time in my life, I encountered chipmunks that were not scared of humans, quite nearer the inn. There are excellent trails for hiking on the ground, but be forewarned that there are steep hills. By the end of each hike, I was sweating like... More

We LOVE this little inn: such a beautiful spot and terrific pampering by the staff! Katja, the innkeeper, is sweet and lovely; very eager-to-please and provides guests with a memorable stay. There is not much to do, except hikes, rest and relaxation. There is a tennis court (back-yard and rustic, not in top condition) and swimming pool for some exercise... More

Our group of ten (eight adults and two children over age 8) recently stayed at the Windham Inn to celebrate a family occasion. The natural beauty, service and food were beyond compare. In particular, the Innkeeper Katja delivers a level of service and attention to detail that we haven't experienced in years. As the owner she obviously cares immensely about... More

Stayed at this Inn for three nights and were not disappointed with a thing. Location is amazing - you are surrounded by acres of trees offering trails for the hikers and in the winter, cross country skiing. Superb restaurant offering a very pleasant menu. Dan - the sommelier(although he would never wish to be called that) knows so much about... More

My wife and I stayed at Windham Hill Inn for 4 nights. The purpose of the trip was to do downhill snow skiing in Southern Vermont. So, this was the base location for our snow ski excursions. We stayed in the White Barn, which is about a 200 foot walk from the main inn building where the restaurant is located... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2-night stay in the Meadowlook suite. What a completely lovely experience. Our suite in the barn was spacious but cozy with a fireplace and views of the mountains. The food was delicious. Katja, the innkeeper, is a consummate professional. Dan, the sommelier, made thoughtful and creative suggestions for superb food-wine pairings. We... More

I stayed at this amazing inn 1 night and vowed after leaving the next morning that I'd be back with my wife, she'll love it. The food was amazing! The staff are incredibly friendly. I must say, whoever is managing this Inn is doing a fantastic job, the little touches like fresh fruit in the room, hand-written welcome note and... More
