“Feel the Warmth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Last week end was pure pleasure at the West Mountain Inn. We celebrated our friends birthday complete with a delicious cake made by the chef. The West Mountain Inn has this feeling of comfort and warmth, the staff makes you feel like family. I can see why large groups of friends and family return year after year to enjoy the delicious food, the calm comfort and the beautiful grounds. Thank-you to Amy, the chef and all of the wonderful staff!

Room Tip: Go for a king size and a fireplace room.

What could possibly be better than spending time at the West Mountain Inn? Staying there for a fraction of the usual cost, that's what! We recently booked another trip to this amazing B&B during their November mid-week promotion and spent a wonderful 2 night stay in the Rockwell Kent suite. While we definitely appreciated the spaciousness of this room and the inviting king size bed, the primary reason we requested it was for the real wood burning fireplace. Relaxing in front of the toasty fire each evening with a good bottle of wine was the best way to wrap up our days. Although the Rockwell Kent suite has some antique furnishings which are certainly pretty to look at and which contribute to the overall pleasing impression of the suite, these "romantic" pieces do not receive high marks in the creature comfort category. I was very pleased to find that a couple of user friendly arm chairs had been placed in this room in addition to the vintage pieces. The bathroom has been totally upgraded - we loved the new dual shower and tiled floor!

Being able to have dinner on the premises is an added perk as there are not many dining options in the immediate vicinity of the inn. Our dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. We were seated at a cozy fireside table which further enhanced our dining experience. Breakfast each morning was plentiful with many selections available. Each morning we were enthusiastically greeted by Mary Beth when we arrived in the dining room. This lady is so incredibly gracious and made certain that our day started off in the best possible fashion. She knew our first names and used them which just added to that overall "at home" feeling that is so prevalent at West Mountain Inn. West Mountain is a truly remarkable place in Vermont where it is entirely possible to simply enjoy being who you are, enjoy being where you are, and enjoy being with that special person in your life. We have been lamenting the fact that our visit was far too short and we are looking forward to our next visit to this magical spot. While the purpose of our trip was just to be able to spend some time away from the stress and demands of our daily routines, we managed a visit to Hildene and highly recommend it as a "must see" when in the Arlington/Manchester area.

Room Tip: The Rockwell Kent suite is very spacious with a comfortable king size bed. It has a true wood burnin...

An absolutely amazing place for a wedding weekend, we couldn't have dreamed up a better place. The service was outstanding and we highly recommend it. We loved the alpacas - we even got to feed them. Everyone in our family had a great time.

We took advantage of the November mid-week special and were thoroughly impressed by the West Mountain Inn. Attention to detail was evident everywhere, from warm woods in the dining room, wonderfully furnished common rooms, an extra-comfy king size bed and decor touches that created a homey atmosphere. The breakfast offerings were "to die for" especially the Irish oatmeal with butter, cream, cinnamon and raisins! What enhanced every aspect of our stay was a staff that was both welcoming and accommodating. We look forward to a return visit this winter!

My husband and I are recently retired and finally got the opportunity to use a Groupon we had purchased a little more than a year ago when life was too busy to use it! Alas, the Groupon had expired, but when we called to use the value of it, the West Mountain Inn told us they would still honor the Groupon deal. We were welcome to stay for two nights with $40 dining credit as purchased! This was a generous offer on the part of the Inn. Because it was recently past peek leaf season we had our selection of many beautifully decorated rooms. The location was lovely, food delicious and hiking behind the inn fun. We got to watch the Red Sox win games 4 & 5 on the flat screen tv located on the main floor. All and all a wonderful experience. We hope to return in the future!

Enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful two plus days in Vermont at the West Mountain Inn. Although we were "past" peak, the countryside was beautiful. The inn and its amenities were very appealing. the staff was extremely friendly and helpful... and it didn't hurt that there were fresh baked cookies everytime we returned to the inn.

We stayed in the Gwendolyn Room with a gas fireplace which provided some warmth and lots of ambiance. Although adjacent to the bar area, the room was quiet by 8:00 at night. The beds were comfortable, the shower effective and the furnishings quite comfortable.

Thank you to the innkeeper for the lovely African violet we received as a parting gift.

We would strongly recommend the inn for its proximity to Manchester and various sights, its good food and hospitality and its comfort.

I would recommend you ask about the menu. It appears with no prices! And beware of the driveway; it has many potholes!

We stayed here for the 2nd time overnight but have been coming to the West Mountain Inn since 2007, both for day and overnight visits. The staff is alway friendly, accommodating and make you feel as if you are part of the family. The food is 5 star, always fresh and local when available. The rooms are quaint and what you would expect from a New England Inn. Yes, as mentioned, there aren't any tv's in the rooms but I would imagine most people who go to an Inn, don't expect or plan on watching tv as you would at home...it's one of the reasons we "go away" to an Inn or B&B..The grounds are beautiful with wonderful views all around. And don't forget to walk the property to see the Alpaca's and peek in the Barn where many memories have been made...My husband and I will continue to visit the West Mountain Inn every chance we get.
