We recently stayed at the Hermitage Inn and I have to say that Inns aren't usually my thing but this Inn has luxury and convenience that trump most. Our room had a fireplace, private bathroom with great toiletries, a TV, coffeemaker, free soda/water, and a great comfy bed. There was a lovely plate of fruit waiting when we arrived into...

Stopped on with friends to eat lunch and have drinks. Hostess sat us immediately but another server came over and told us we couldn't sit and had to leave for a private event. Gentleman handled it very rudely. Not going back

The Hermitage Pub was redone a few years ago, but has retained the original casual feel, but now has an upscale touch. The menu is varied and original with salads, fish, steak, burgers, chicken and Mac N Cheese, etc. The flatbread is excellent and original - great crust. The service is always friendly and attentive, but last night (Nikki I...

Don’t read into this too much. And don’t hold this against them as this is probably one of the nicest places to stay in the surrounded area. It is a very nice inn. Very luxurious. We stayed in the Coldbrook suite. Relatively dark room with small windows that you would expect in a refurbished old house. There really are no...

My family and I went to The Hermitage with another family for three days and two nights this past New Year's Eve. We had a great time! The club itself is more than anyone could ask for with skiing on a private mountain, spa services, entertainment in an incredible clubhouse that has to be experienced. The food was excellent and...

My family and I visited the Hermitage Inn and were pleased with the coziness of the bar and the dining room. The service; however, was the worst imaginable. My son-in-law made a reservation for 9 people 3 weeks ago. When he called to confirm, they had lost the reservation so he made it again. When he called to confirm a...

The vision Jim Barnes had for the area is not only beautiful but provides the vehicle for the community to sustain itself. The quality of the service and people made our visit memorable. Thank you Jim, Donna and family for your commitment and allowing us to share this most wonderful week end! Pat and Don Griesdorn

My wife made reservations for our 25th anniversary back in early September. When we arrived we were told that the pub and restaurants were closed for renovations. As part of the package we would have access to The Hermitage restaurant and a couple of their affiliated inns for dinner. It would have been nice to have been told in advance...

We had a great time in Vermont, and loved staying at the Hermitage Inn. What a wonderful place to stay, definitely planning a return trip. Can't wait to see the fall foliage again, we didn’t realize just how amazing the fall colors can be. Thanks for the great food and accommodations!

Embark on a snowshoe tour or hike on our trails, relax in our sauna after a vigorous cross-country ski outing, or enjoy a rousing game of pool in our game room.
