“Return to Deerhill Inn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We returned to Deerhill Inn after an absence of 9 years to celebrate our anniversary! At first, we were disappointed not to see the same owners, but were delighted that things were just as wonderful as we remembered them! We had a room with a balcony with a wonderful view of the mountains. Highlights included a massage that they arranged for us, the yummy breakfast and gourmet dinner.

The innkeeper/owners, Ariane & Scott, run a magnificent inn. There is little reason to leave starting with the early morning coffee, the magnificent breakfast cooked to order, the afternoon refreshments, and wonderful dinners if you choose to dine in. If you prefer dinner elsewhere, they will provide great alternatives. Simply sitting on the grounds on pretty days or in front of your gas fireplace in the evenings is enough, but if you want more, the activities close by on the ski slopes or in Bennington and Brattleboro, and the hiking in the area will ensure you will sleep well.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies or patios are best -- we prefer the mountain views facing west.

We had never been to this Inn, and now I never want to stay any place else. This inn was spectacular. We had originally booked a king size room, with no TV. When we arrived we decided we wanted a TV. Not a problem at all. They moved us to a gigantic room, with a beautiful view of the mountains. Every detail you can think of, they have included. In the bathroom, they even had a small bag, to take the toiletries home. The inn is truly a gem. My husband and I stayed on Friday and Saturday. Both mornings are breakfasts were delicious. You have a choice of eggs, pancake of the day or omelet of the day. No standing in line for a continental breakfast. You eat in the same dining room, that they serve dinner in. It is with linen and fine china. We also ate dinner with friends on Saturday night. The food was prepared so beautifully, not one of us, wanted to eat. We sat and just stared at the magnificent presentation. All 4 meals were a delight. We had appetizers and desert, with great wine. We did not want the evening to end. They did not rush our service at all. It truly was a beautiful dinner. We cannot wait to return. We felt so comfortable staying at this pristine property. The staff treated us, as if we were old friends. Wish the weekend did not have to end. There is always another time, that we will visit this spectacular property.

Room Tip: If you want a wonderful, quiet night's sleep, we suggest you go to this Inn.

The hospitality and perfect. The Inn keepers Arianne and Scott do such a great job, the food is very good and the wine list very reasonable. The rooms are very clean and well appointed - I can't wait to go back.

I went back to Deerhill at the spur of the moment for a little R & R and to get some work done. Oh, did I make the right choice! Everything was absolutely perfect! My room was perfect, the hospitality warm and genuine and the dining room is a miracle. Two amazing dinners with a sensibly and well-priced wine list. Deerhill is magical! I agree with other psoters that the damage done by Irene is truly sad. Lot's of businesses closed in Wilmington- very sad.

Had a great stay. The inn is large enough so you don't feel pinned down by other guests.

There are several common areas inside and outside on very nice grounds so that if you want to escape other people it is easily done. However, if meeting and talking to people is your thing, everyone (guests and innkeepers) is very friendly and pleasant.

Food (ate breakfast and dinner) was excellent. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Really nothing to complain about.

The folks that may have given poor to mediocre ratings were ones who complain about lack of big-screen cable TV and air conditioning. I think they took the wrong exit off the New Jersey Turnpike and ended up at this inn. We went to Vermont for some clean mountain air and a break from media bombardment and got it.

Stayed here on a last minute reservation. The innkeepers, Arianne and Scott, were so delightful and accommodating. Took care of every detail. Amenities were the better than the Ritz! The view from the dining room was squirelishious! Beautiful Views and and a team of chipmunks kept our atttention with great tricks. Breakfast and dinner were top notch. Don't miss them both! We stayed in the orchid room that was both well appointed and roomy with a great deck and view, close to the pool. No need to look any place else in the area. We have an Inn in California
And were so impressed.
