“Expensive and mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2006

Hickory Ridge House has allegedly been “transformed” from a medium-priced inn to a "luxury" one. Sadly, the only transformation is in the prices - they now range from $165 to over $300. At these prices, it's just not worth it.
At the old price range (which is still listed on this site) it was an OK value. Now it is just a very expensive, run-of-the-mill inn. The rooms are bland, with few of the antiques and personal touches one would expect at this level. Signs of cost cutting abound, like the discount store ear swabs in the bathroom, (can't afford real Q-Tips? Give me a break) and the smallish breakfast. Oh, and there’s a mere 1-hour window for that smallish breakfast. At most luxury inns the hosts ask when you’d like to eat and accommodate you, not expect you to accommodate them. Not very gracious.
Cleanliness is uneven - beds are clean (thankfully) but some windows appear to have been last washed a few years ago. None of these things are so terrible, and at a normally priced place I might not even mention them. But at the prices they're now charging, it's unacceptable. A very poor value.

We first stayed at the Hickory Ridge House last winter, and went back this past week. A lovely, historic house. We stayed in a different room each time - each had its own charms. The hosts were terrific, and really took good care of us. Our only dilemma - whether to stay in the house all day - relaxing either in our own room or the common rooms - or spend all day traveling around Putney, Brattleboro etc. That's why we came back - so we could do both!
