“Good Friends Gather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a wonderful spot for a singular getaway or group gathering. We chose this Inn to celebrate the birthdays of two of our group who had just turned 70. We were four couples,old friends, looking for a place to share a time together and enjoy good food and good company. Deerhill was not a disappointment in any category. The rooms were tastefully decorated, most with fireplaces, and the menu provided a variety of interesting appetizers,entrees,and deserts. We recommend the price fixe 4 course dinner at $95/couple-a great bargain. Breakfast is included in your room rate. The common areas downstairs and up are extremely comfortable and afford a homey atmosphere in which to gather for drinks,snacks and conversation. Don't miss the cookies. Owners Scott and Ariane made our visit all the more enjoyable. We'd like to visit again when the pool is open and the gardens are in bloom.

Room Tip: Rooms/Suites in the main part of the Inn overlook the garden areas and some have small comfortable d...

We were guests here at Deerhill Inn for dinner only. We went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Beautiful location and inviting the moment you walk in the door. Our table was right next to the fireplace and that only added to the ambience. Service was spot-on and welcoming. Menu was limited, but seemed to have something for all. Can't wait to go back!

Breakfast and dinner is always a very special treat! Cozy and warm with the fireplace lit. Many different birds to watch at the feeder as we ate. This was our 2nd visit. 1st stay was in the Tamarack room and we were very pleased with it. This time around we stayed in the Garden Suite which needs a little updating and rearranging. Wasn't able to watch tv in bed... Owner stated that is their next project to update that suite.

Room Tip: Tamarack is beautiful with a fireplace and double jacuzzi! Large bed, comfy couch! Nice back deck...

They just beat us to it! We will have Garden Suite upgraded in time for the Holiday Season - a new sofa and bedside rugs, cozy curtains and a second TV with cable and DVD player in the bedroom ... just some of the things we plan for our two-room suite. And of course Garden Suite will still have its super-comfortable king bed, the wonderful view of our ski mountains Haystack and Mount Snow from both of the two rooms, a large jetted tub, and its own entrance on the first floor at a quiet corner of the Inn. Like our guests, we value the unique character of our country Inn but we do constantly improve our room amenities to enhance the special experience of your stay with us in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

This was our top choice of B and Bs in Vermont....Because it was relaxed, friendly and a warm and cozy atmosphere. With blazing fireplaces and exceptionally comfortable furniture and rooms throughout, this inn gave one a homey atmosphere. The barn walls were rustic and tasteful....The garden must have been fabulous before the frost...Cute bar area...The restaurant was excellent and service outstanding. Morning breakfast was greeted with birds and squirrels and even in the rain, the view was tranquil....We have the White Pine Suite and loved the space with sitting area, fire place and the extra amenities...I commented to the waitress that I had never been at a B and B where they had a cute plastic bag to take the shampoo and soap if you wished to do so. The water and cookies were special after the long drive. Can't wait to go back. I bet it is beautiful in the winter.

Room Tip: White Pine Suite had a bathroom ceiling that sloped...Just be aware. Loved the top floor....quiet as...

Our first time will not be our last. I cannot say enough good things about this Inn. Upon arrival, we were greeted, welcomed and given the tour. Both of the owners could not have made us feel more welcome and tended to all our needs before we even asked. No detail of comfort was left undone. We had a wonderful room on the second floor with a balcony that looked out to the mountains. When we entered our room, the fireplace was going, water and homemade cookies were waiting for us and the room itself was so warm clean and inviting. After a long day of walking, we returned to hot beverages and snacks before dinner, a nice jet bath with the most comfortable robes. The food at the restaurant was OUTSTANDING. In the morning, we went downstairs for a wonderful breakfast, (included) and sat and relaxed and planned out our day. We felt so comfortable there, we did not want to leave. We have traveled many places and by far this Inn is on our all time favorites. Do not miss this gem. You will not want to leave.

Room Tip: We had the Evergreen room. Looked out to the mountains and had a lovely fireplace and the most comf...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in October 2012, the setting is wonderful with great views of the mountains. Try and get one of the front rooms on the first floor, these rooms are very large, have the best views and Veranda’s, great for sitting out with a glass of chilled wine.

Do use the restaurant, breakfast is wonderful and the dinners are to die for.

It was our 40th Wedding Anniversary during our stay here and I had prearranged breakfast in bed plus Flowers and Champaign for my wife when we returned from our day out. They provide wonderful Champaign and the Flowers were superb.

I would highly recommend this Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front on First Floor have the best views.
