“Great weekend get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2008

My husband and I have stayed there twice now and love it as a weekend get away. There is not a ton of things to do in the area other than hike and ski but if you are looking to relax and explore the area it is great. The restaurant is absolutely fantastic as well and adds to the experience. We found Jane and Dave to be very friendly and helpful.
On the negative side, as one other reviewer did comment on, the walls are thin. While we didn't hear specific conversations we did hear some coughing and voices.
All in all, we have enjoyed our experiences there and plan on going back again.

My husband and I choose this inn by just stumbling across the website and what a great find. The inn is beautiful; the innkeepers, Jane and David are excellent hosts; and the chef prepares incredible dishes. We just got back and can not wait to plan our next trip.
The inn is spacious and charming. We peaked in the open rooms and all are decorated beautifully, each having a fireplace and sitting chairs. The tavern is welcoming and everyone there is friendly. The owners make you feel like long, lost friends. The food was absolutely delicious. The packages are great and include a tasting menu, breakfast and onsite massages. We hope to be back every year!

This is a fascinating place.

The Rooms: We thought the rooms were nice and cozy. Ours was clean and the shower was excellent. My one complaint is that the walls are paper thin. I'm not saying it's that way in every room since we only stayed in one. But we heard many of the conversations in the adjoining rooms as well as overhead. We heard almost every word of a fight between a couple staying in the room above us. We heard them having sex in the afternoon. Our room had a small TV with a DVD player. They have a good library of DVDs, as well as tons of games and books.

The Food: This place strives for greatness with their cuisine. They buy mostly organic game&veggies from the surrounding community. The chef Jason is a disciple of Jean Georges and Daniel Boloud - two of the greatest chefs in the world. He does not play games in the kitchen. We ate in the Tavern one night. We started with a beef sausage, which was outrageously good. My wife had the gnocci with turnips and other root vegatables, which was a fabulous dish. I had a roasted half chicken, which came out piping hot - too hot. But once it cooled down it was quite lovely. The thyme corn-stuffing was fantastic. Bravisimo. We also ate in the restaurant and it wasn't quite as satisfying. Given the prices, I expected a bit more. The main problem was the service. Our waitress made several mistakes, which went a long way in hurting the meal. She did not announce the specials, and seemed irritated when my admittedly finicky wife asked for some vegetarian selections. There were other issues, but lets just leave it at that. Maybe because we're on the young side, she didn't think we knew what good food/service was all about. I had a game hen appetizer wrapped in crispy breading served over a light creme sauce. It was good though it didn't blow me away. My entree was the swordfish and it was absolutely world class. The restaurant also has a full bar and a very comprehensive wine list. Overall, they strive for excellence and came awfully close. Breakfast was also superb, and free. They give you an option of eggs with bacon/sausage, or cinnamon french toast, or some yogurty thing which I obviously didn't order.

The Area: I wasn't blown away by the immediate area. There is much beauty but also poverty. But hey, poverty can be beautiful if you look at it a certain way. The Inn is near Springfield, which struck me as a working class town. The Inn itself is set back from the property and could use an additional sign at the entrance. Mt Ascutney is 6-7 miles away and a must see. However, if you go on a hike, be advised it's a fairly serious incline and you should bring hiking boots and some water unlike us snapperheads. Woodstock is 20 miles North on 106, and it's very touristy, but a beautiful town. Plus it's a beautiful drive in any season, but particularly when we did it with the Fall season in full effect. Queechee (sp) is up that way as well.

The Hosts: You have to admire a pair of people who left their corporate jobs and purchased a shuttered B&B that had been left for dead in 2001. These guys turned it around and have become a vital pillar of the local community. They must work their asses off. Bravo to them. They were very helpful. I would say that Dave is a bit awkward. Being an engineer, he probably can't help it, but unfortunately he has to be a frontman for the place because they need him. The guy could use a few hospitality classes. Don't get me wrong - a totally admirable guy and probably whip-smart, but he's just not that warm to the newcomers. When I'm visiting a place such as this, I want to feel warm and fuzzy and I didn't always get that from him.

Overall this is a cool place. I'd love to stay there in the winter and ski, but my wife doesn't ski so that will probably never happen. If you ski, I'd imagine this would be a very cool place to go during the wintertime. It's cozy as heck!

Every now and then (and not nearly often enough) one comes across a property with that extra little bit of magic, where everything comes together in a way that makes it seem churlish to criticise any minor shortcomings. The Inn at Weathersfield is such a place. We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend here with friends, and just wish we could have stayed longer, and that we lived somewhat closer (instead of the other side of the world) so we could come back more often. It's difficult to add anything further to the recent reviews. We can simply agree that the property, the innkeepers, the food, the setting, the rooms ... in short, everything ... is wonderful. If you like your B&B's rustic, cozy, friendly, comfortable, relaxed and with excellent dining to boot, this is for you. We especially appreciated the fact that the dining room menu is offered in the Tavern ... handy to keep in mind if you can't get a table in the main dining room. A class act.

  • Liked — Fine dining on the premises.
  • Disliked — Having to leave.

We spent a 3 day weekend at the Inn at Weathersfield and loved every minute. We stayed in a queen suite, which had a queen bed and a separate sitting room. The restaurant is outstanding (of course - the head chef has won awards and has been featured on tv). A nice little library, "tavern" and outdoor deck make for comfortable spaces to relax and talk. We will definitely stay at this inn again.

Just a few things to bear in mind: first, not all the rooms have a spacious tub in the bathroom; some have just a shower stall. If this is an issue for you be sure to ask ahead of time. Second, you should make reservations for the restaurant ahead of time. It is really an exquisite dining experience so don't miss it because you forgot to reserve a table!

Check their website for information about the inn and local attractions. The owners are very friendly and know all about the surrounding area; they can suggest great activities nearby. The innkeepers have created a beautiful, peaceful retreat with five-star dining that adds up to a wonderful stay.

The title pretty much sums up our stays at the Inn at Weathersfield. We've been staying at the Inn since Dave and Jane took it over and haven't gone anywhere since. They have done an outstanding job bringing the Inn to the level it is at now. All of the rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. Dave and Jane know the region well and are always there to offer suggestions for day trips. The fire pit is a great way to end the evening. Watch the flames flicker while enjoying a glass of wine, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying good conversation with other guests of the Inn.
The restaurant has one of the best chefs in New England in Jason Tostrup. He's trained under some of the best and it shows. Having dined at a lot of the better restaurants in NYC, we can safely say that we would put his cooking up against any one of them. The wine list is exceptional. Jane does a great job in matching wines to your meal. Do yourself a favor and have some friends stay at the Inn with you and arrange for a dinner at The Chef's Table in the wine cellar (6 people minimum). The experience will be unforgettable.
Just to add one more thing. In reading the other reviews, we can't help but comment on the one from this past February 25th. Either these people reviewed the wrong Inn, or they have no idea what good food really is. Jason an inexperienced chef? Not a chance. He's one of the best. Jason searches for the best local produce he can find. He picks his meats out himself and tells the farmers how he wants them finished. You can't get any better, fresher ingredients then what you get here.

My wife(Karen) and I have stayed at the Inn at Weathersfield ever since the new innkeepers Dave and Jane ( and Lucy, the dog) took over. The rooms are all well appointed and comfortable. The dining is exceptional, thanks to the innovative chef , Jason ( prestigious SANTEE awardee ) . Wine list is impressive and not overpriced.But it is the atmosphere provided by the innkeepers that sets this inn apart in Vermont. Try the Upper Falls Room; it is our favorite (TV, DVD,Jacuzzi, sitting room). Each visit seems to be better than the last. Try it...you'll LOVE it.
