We stayed at the IW for our daughters wedding there. It couldn't have been more perfect. Richard and Marilee know what they are doing and do it very well. The rooms were great as was the service, food and staff. I would highly recommend for a wedding or even for a short stay in the area. Just beautiful!
first class as always owners on top with every thing resturant has good menu and sometime specials make time for richard at the small pub good area for snow shoeing and hiking or hang near a firepit rooms all up to date with old time vermont style can go wrong here
this was our third or fourth trip over the last few years. It seems to only get better each time. First, the food is awesome and Richard and Marilee could not be more welcoming and helpful. Our dinners were salmon, hanger steak au poivre and veal schnitzel. All were outstanding. Complimentary breakfast is delicious (we had lemon pancakes and veggie scramble.) We will be back soon!
My boyfriend and I spent two nights at IW and had the most incredible weekend. From the moment we arrived the staff was friendly, welcoming, and made us feel right at home. Our room as great and came with nice touches like freshly baked cookies! Breakfast is included and is terrific, and the restaurant for dinner is absolutely delicious. The owners went above and beyond to get to know the guests and really made us feel like family. The location is great and just a 20 minute drive to Okemo. At night we enjoyed drinks by the fire and had such a lovely and cozy weekend. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend getaway, this is the perfect place!! We can't wait to come back again in the warmer weather!
Went to visit Vermont Soapstone and needed a place to stay overnight. Since it was the week of Valentines Day my husband surprised me with a stay at this wonderful inn. We could not be happier with our stay. The inn is gorgeous and immaculately clean. Luxurious yet casual all at the same time. Perfect! When we walked in the door we were greeted very pleasantly and given a short tour of the place and a little history. We had booked dinner there and chose to just hang out right there for the afternoon until dinner. Very comfy. Dinner and drinks were superb as was the service. Coffee and breakfast in the morning were just as good. Both my husband and I were very happy with our stay. We definitely hope to go back again.
Our room was very clean, comfortable, and sported a large gas fireplace and welcoming pair of cushiony chairs that swiveled easily towards or away from the fire. (It’s amazing how often rooms with nice fireplaces have immovable 4-ton chairs that face away from the flame, or a pair of rear-numbing wicker chairs designed to punish you for enjoying the fire.) The arrangement here was great. The bathroom was large with warming towel racks. The room itself was a little chilly -- but not too uncomfortably so. It hit 7 below outside the first night and we -- perhaps wrongly -- assumed that, because there were no printed instructions, the baseboard heat couldn’t be adjusted. We didn’t want to reveal our incompetence by asking. If we were seriously uncomfortable – which we weren’t – it was our fault, not the Inn’s; we didn’t ask. Meals were well prepared, tasty, and served by a friendly, attentive staff. Cocktails were well mixed, and tables nicely spaced. Noise level was also very good. The dining room is pleasantly rustic. There’s a large wood burning stove at one end of the main dining area which produces a spectacular glass-enclosed inferno when fed. The menu is farm-to-table (not something we look for), and we did wonder what would be “in” for February. Pleasantly, other than a limited choice of salads, there was ample selection. Particular favorites were the frisée salad with bacon and egg; the pork schnitzel, and a steak au poivre. My wife had the chicken dish which she was less keen on. Our server for both nights, Melissa, was attentive and gracious, especially on the Sunday night when we (habitual late diners even at home) were the last in. She let us linger over our drinks and eat at our own pace without making us feel the least bit rushed or troublesome. The hot breakfasts were nicely prepared with a number of choices available. Coffee was good too. Two small quibbles: Dining room lighting. The ambiance at night, especially near the windows is a bit gloomy. Perhaps more light on the tables themselves and less in the open areas would make diners feel more intimate. Snowshoeing. This was a draw for us. There were ample pairs of shoes all in very good shape, but only 1 pair of poles for the lot. This meant we had only 1 pole each which does not an arctic adventure make – especially on snowy mounds and hills. Also, we wanted to explore the property around the Inn, but were unsure which direction to walk. We weren’t expecting cleared paths, but painted arrows or ribbons on trees, would help indicate a route for newcomers. Regardless, we soon went to the preserve down the road, and were fine. It a great Inn and we had a wonderful time. I am giving 5 stars only because TA doesn’t provide an option for 4.75. Quibbles aside, we will certainly return.…
After visiting 40 years ago, we were happy to find it still there and wonderful! An early summer day & night in 2021 assured us that we must return. A Thanksgiving package provided the makings of a relaxing and delicious time. The chef's dinners and Richard's breakfasts are sooo good. So we brought back our brother and his wife to replay the 40-year adventure. We did that and visited by the fireplace, happy and warm, plus we took a recommendation from Marilee for a spectacular sleigh ride. We will be back . . .
Our stay at the Weathersfield Inn was fantastic. With only a 20 min drive distance from Okemo, this Inn is a great option if you are going skiing. The rooms are clean, cozy, and the staff is very friendly. The food is amazing, breakfast is included and you have the option to dine in at the Inn, which I highly recommend. They have a farm to table restaurant with a seasonal menu and a full bar with signature cocktails and more.
Mangement and staff are super friendly and welcoming. The room and bed (we stayed at Kidder Hill) were super comfortable and cozy, it had a small furnace and the daily fresh baked cookies were a nice delicious touch. The Inn itself is very quiet, for those looking for a tranquil weekend should definitely check it out. It is just 25 mins away from Okemo Mountain Resort, which makes the Inn a perfect place to stay and relax after a long day of skiing. 5/5 would recommend to anyone.
Wonderful stay! My husband and I spent Christmas Eve at the Inn while visiting family. We stayed in the Taftsville (or Taftsbury?) Room and enjoyed the fireplace and comfy king bed...as well as an amazing dinner and breakfast. We live in Vermont, and found this to be the perfect local cozy getaway...it also counted as a little baby moon...so we were happy to have an on-site restaurant. Service was great and accommodating to my diet restrictions and preferences. We hope to return!
