I returned to the Deerfield Inn for my second visit. This time my husband and 9 and 11-year-old girls came with me. We stayed in one of the family suites in the Carriage House. It was perfect for a family - one room with two beds and another room with a queen (plus two baths). The rooms were closed off with a door that provided complete privacy. The rooms were historic in decor, yet offered all the high-tech options our "plugged in" family needs - flat screen TVs, wi-fi and a great DVD library!
We ate at Champney's Tavern on our first night. It was fabulous - great burgers and my flat iron steak salad was the best! We all really enjoyed a relaxing dinner in the Champney's Tavern. I'm not a martini drinker, but we were amused by the 100 martinis on the menu - all named after illustrious Deerfield characters.
The inn is part of the Historic Deerfield museum, and therefore guests of the inn can get free passes to tour all the preserved homes and museum at Historic Deerfield. Extra value!
My kids, husband and I all felt so comfortable at the inn. My kids felt it was part inn, part hotel, given the tavern and fine dining restaurant. I felt welcomed by the friendly staff and wonderful innkeepers too. I highly recommend the Deerfield Inn to everyone - families, couples, historic travel buffs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Deerfield Inn first opened in July 1884 while both a drought and grasshoppers were plaguing the village. The disasters went, but the guests stayed for "the atmosphere and charm of early days, with modern comfort and convenience" with breakfast starting at 30¢ and a room with running water from $1.50. Today we have 24 comfortable and pleasing guestrooms and farm-to-fork Champney's Restaurant & Tavern. We source locally, make our own infusions, support area microbrewers, and in our 131st year we remain the centerpiece of Old Deerfield, a National Historic Landmark, and a Select Registry Property. ... more less
