Best B & B ...so glad my son and I were able to stay here, eat a wonderful dinner and enjoy a delicious breakfast! The pancakes that Fritz made were amazing and can't wait to visit again next time I am in Vermont. The rooms...are so cozy and have such charm. We had a wonderful and restful stay. Hope to see you soon Paula and Fritz:)More

Our first stay at the Derby Line Village Inn and it will not be our last: the hosts, Paula and Fritz were friendly and accommodating; our room was large, quiet and had a very comfortable king bed; finally, the food was excellent, both supper and...the breakfast next morning. The area offers trails for snowshoeing, XC skiing and biking. We'll be back to try the rail trail to Newport and again enjoy the fine hospitality and great food.More

The hype is absolutely real about the food. The food is better than Burlington's greats, at the same price or less, and without the crowd/waits. Draft beer selection offers great German beers made locally and Paula said she normally has a red wine that is...extremely popular and regularly stocked. The appetizers are from $7-14 and are a must because they are uniquely delicious and made fresh (rather than frozen apps trying to get you to purchase more). Salads and rolls with house cheese butter was great and then it doesn't matter what entree you get (many $25) because they are all perfectly prepared, beautifully presented, and EYE-CLOSING delicious. Haha you will close your eyes when you eat Fritz's fresh mushrooms, tender meats, or sliced potatoes. Dessert was amazing at another $7 and although that may buy two pints of good ice cream, Fritz's desserts are an EXPERIENCE. It is truly a beautiful EXPERIENCE dining there because of their food, however the atmosphere and service do it the justice it deserves. And pre-Covid19 they had live music,...I can't even imagine how fun that would be at this venue! The Majestrate room was very dated to be honest, and whether some would label it rustic charm or not, it neither here nor there, because the bed was comfy, the shower was great, and free strong wifi provided. I hope to get organized enough to display the beautifully presented breakfast that we're still thinking and talking about and writing a review about. I hope them as much success and happiness as possible but that they'll still be able to fit us in the door for a reservation in the future ;-)More

Stayed twice, both visits were so relaxing, great staff makes you their priority. Fritz owner chef puts his years of experience to create culinary delights. Wife Paula just asks how to make your visit better. We dined on the patio, not rushed, excellent service. The...food is great! fritz makes his own sausages, and many other items in addition to the menu. Examples: puff pastry-so light and flakey, a salmon gravlox & dill sauce appetizer. 5 rooms nicely decorated, so book ahead, also suggest dinner reservations. Hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.More

This was my first sit down dinner since February due to the COVID-19 pandemic. First I saw all the employees doing there part for safety. They wore masks and the restaurant was set up for social distancing. That was the safety portion, how new that...is now part of a review. The food was excellent. I had a flat bread pizza for an appetizer and there seafood pasta for main course. Both were awesome. I also will mention the house salad was the best, really enjoyed the dressing and potatoes in the salad. Keep up the effort and thank you for a great meal.More

Delicious food, perfectly prepared and served. Lovely setting with candles and wood burning fireplace. Everything sparkled. Could compete with any first rate restaurant in NYC or Boston. Great wine and cocktail choices.

My wife and I stayed here one night and loved it. Owners Fritz and Paula were very friendly and hospitable. Great bar with German taps. Food was gourmet quality. Fritz is an outstanding chef. I had German cuisine and my wife had the halibut special....Excellent choice if coming to Derby Line for your Global Entry interview. U.S. Customs and Canadian border less than 2 minutes away. And by the way a gourmet breakfast complete with cappuccino and pastries was included.More

The guest rooms are wonderfully furnished, large and comfortable. Fritz and Paula are the most gracious hosts. The Austrian/German food Fritz serves in the restaurant/bar are superbly prepared and served, especially his Salzburg soufflé! Derby Line is a quaint village on the US/Canadian border.

I would agree but at McDonald's you can't see the server's footwear, so how would he possibly know whether it is a good place to eat or not? LOL
