“Wonderful Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

My husband and I spent New Years weekend at this incredible inn. Our room was beautifully made up with fresh, crisp linens and towels. The gas fireplace in the room added to the wonderful charm of the inn. The atmosphere of the whole inn is warm and relaxing. We also love the decor of the inn. The innkeeper Bev is warm, personable and entertaining. She is a fabulous cook. Breakfast was a feast everyday with fresh pastry made in the morning. She makes it all look effortless. The location of the inn is perfectly located between Quechee and Woodstock high on a hill overlooking the valley. It is very picturesque. We are looking forward to a return trip to the inn.

Fabulous food in a clean, warm, and friendly bed and breakfast. The inn's charm is a reflection of the owner, Beverly Cook, and her comfortably decorated home with many antique finds. The views of the Woodstock/Quechee area are spectacular from almost every window in the inn, and there are countless windows. Plan your next VT stay at the Apple Hill Inn; you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Bedrooms on second floor are over the top spacious with their own bathrooms, and the view from the f...

We booked Apple Hill Inn as a stopover on our journey from Cape Cod to the Adirondacks - it turned out to be a top highlight of our holiday. The house is wonderfully situated with views of the surrounding hills. Our room was beautifully designed and spotless. The towels and sheets were crisp and fresh and luxurious. The owners couldn't be more welcoming and the breakfast simply couldn't be beaten. Scones and muffins and french toast (all baked that morning) and fruit salad and yoghurt and eggs and sausages and....Need I say more?
If you're going anywhere near the Woodstock/Quechee area then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The Paradise room fitted the five of us with room to spare, has a great view and a very well equippe...

We couldn't agree more with all the reviews that have extolled the seemingly unending virtues of this inn and its fabulous innkeepers. The setting of the inn - on a hill surrounded by beautiful fields and flowers - is perfect. Both the guestrooms and the public rooms are furnished in exquisite taste - and we were lucky enough, during our most recent stay, to experience two new ones, which are particularly wonderful. The breakfasts can't be beat - homemade, yet expertly prepared and presented. Perhaps most importantly, innkeepers Bev and Andy are two of the most interesting, helpful and friendly people we've ever met. They make a stay at Apple Hill the truly special experience it is.

What we haven't seen mentioned in other recent reviews is the fact that Apple Hill is an ideal spot to stay during visits to Dartmouth - a scenic 25-minute trip away. And that's particularly true during graduation weekend, when Hanover is overrun with celebrating families. We were lucky enough to stay at the inn during the recent 2011 graduation weekend, and couldn't have been happier. The inn was a terrific spot to relax as a family during downtimes over the weekend. Bev was up early with us the morning of graduation, preparing individual breakfasts to go. And she also prepared a special family luncheon for after the ceremony. Perfection!

On a romantic weekend getaway rom the city... enjoyed fabulous views, impeccable room, sunshine-drenched dining, great food and wonderful hospitality from Beverlee. What more can you ask? We enjoyed our visit immensely. Only caution is that there is another inn nearby with a similar name. I can't speak about that one, but Apple Hill was perfect for our visit to the Woodstock area and to Vermont!

We enjoyed immensely our three night stay at the Apple Hill Inn. Our spacious suite above the garage had views in all four directions. Besides the comfortable
queen-size bed, we enjoyed a sitting area with wingback chairs which looked over the village of Taftsville to a stretch of the Quechee River and the wooded hills beyond.

Separated from the bed by a wall of books was a full kitchen with views of the garden and pasture. The rooms are all simply but tastefully decorated with contemporary prints hanging on the walls, hardwood floors with area rugs.

The innkeepers, Beverly and Andrew were warm and friendly. Beverly bakes wonderous
pastries including a Swedish pastry ring to live for and delicious stuffed French toast. She
and Andrew entertained my family with stories of their innkeeping experiences as well as
their previous careers. All of this and only three miles to the shops and restaurants of Woodstock, VT. My wife said, "This is my idea of heaven."

My friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights and wish it could have been much longer. The taste and furnishings of the home are superb, and the views from the deck are so beautiful. We stayed in the room with a full kitchen and, as much as we enjoyed exploring Woodstock and Quechee, could have hidden out in the room as well. We did for some of the time with great wine and cheese from the Taftsville General Store - an easy drive or even walk from the room. Beverlee, the owner, is so welcoming and a lot of fun. I keep telling my husband he must experience this place and can't wait to return.
