Upon arrival and entering the inviting living room, we were greeted with an area of available beverages, fruits and sweets. We were shown to our suite which was very accommodating and comfortable for my husband and I with a lovely high 4 poster bed, sitting area, fireplace, and nicely appointed bathroom. We so enjoyed the detail of the comfortable breakfast... More

My husband and I had tickets for the Kneisel Hall concert and wanted to stay within walking distance. The Blue Hill Inn was the perfect choice. It combines 19th century charm with 21st century hospitality. We were welcomed and shown to our room (room #2) even though we arrived before the official check-in time. We had a nice chat with...

What a great place this is. We stayed three nights last week and were very impressed. Super breakfasts and nicely appointed comfortable bedrooms. Duncan and Chris are attentive and very helpful hosts leading an excellent team.

The Blue Hill Inn has spoiled us for all other B&Bs, and I really can't imagine how it could be better. The innkeeper, Duncan, and his assistant, Chris, are not only warm and approachable, but they also offer the highest level of professionalism and service. Our first night, we found our bed to be a little too soft and the... More

My Important Other and I spend three nights at the Blue Hill Inn last weekend and could not have been more delighted by the quiet charm of the Inn, the friendly hospitality of owner Duncan and Chris, the real maple syrup provided with blueberry pancakes, the unbelievable Bananas Foster Belgian Waffle, and the quiet garden filled with flowers and trees...

We had a lovely stay in this charming early 1800's inn. Duncan, the proprietor, was very helpful, and the hospitality was outstanding. We had a delicious breakfast every morning and coffee was always available. There was always a homemade sweet treat by the coffee bar. The delicious chocolates by our bed in the evening was a delightful surprise. I highly... More

We stayed in room # 2 for 2 nights over Memorial Day. Our room as well as the rest of the Inn was very clean and well-appointed. Staff are attentive, and anticipate needs, such as when the day was unusually hot, so a fan was brought to our room to ensure a comfortable night's sleep. There is a nice sitting... More
