What a treat it was to dine there! Attentive service, top quality ingredients impeccably prepared, nice range of options and very adequate wine list. It was a truly memorable dinner. We’ll definitely go back if we visit Vermont!

We had a mid-week get away to Dorset and had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The Inn has always been one of our favorite restaurants from when we were Dorset locals. So staying there was a new experience that we will do again. The mid-week package was great value for such a nice room so well appointed and the food was fantastic. We both were happy with the nice selection of course offerings and the breakfast was awesome. The staff were all so nice and the service excellent throughout our stay. It felt like a vacation where we felt right at home.

Stayed at the Dorset for three days recently and had a wonderful time. Staff could not have been nicer and the Inn is classic Vermont. We stayed in room 23, which is one of the larger rooms at the Inn. Two minor knocks would be the TV in the bedroom is mounted on a side wall (really can’t watch it) and the Sofa in the sitting room could use a facelift. However, the bathroom was well equipped w a steam shower and even better a steam soaking tub. The restaurant at the Dorest is very good and we ate there the first night. The complimentary breakfast was more than most could ask for. We chose the Dorest based on a family members love of the Inn and now I can see why.

Once again a wonderful and relaxing visit to our favorite place , The Dorset Inn . Upon arrival we are always greeted warmly by the staff. Dave, Krista, Aimee, and Christine as well as others have always made us feel like we were missed . We always select a different room as they are all so tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Everyone of them seems to be my favorite . The employees go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. From the friendly housekeeping staff to Patrick at the bar, to Krista at the front desk to the young gentleman who lit the fire for us at 7:15 in the morning while having coffee and reading the paper . Dinners at the Inn are top notch creations and always a welcomed blend of deliciousness . Usually we will have dessert and drinks at the bar where Patrick makes the best libations and delivers desserts with two utensils even tho he knows better . My only complaint or regret is that we have to leave . But not to worry, as I am making plans for our next visit as we drive away . Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay every time !
