Great place for an event

The rooms are large and spacious with very comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The surroundings and walk in the area are very pretty and many levels of difficulty so anyone can take a stroll. The breakfast was good but very slow service. We were there for a wedding reception and venue was... read more

This place has gone so down hill. The turnover in the staff is a quick revolving door. The final nail in the coffin they are charging $52 for a bottle of Wente Chardonnay which I can readily buy for $13 tops. Shame on you!! Same bottle can be had at 1846 down the road for $23 Never coming back

We come skiing Christmas week for many years now and had dinners in this restaurant many times. Knowing last minute reservations are difficult and having a large party we called a week ahead. We made the reservation but the restaurant told us they will call back to confirm the next day. Nobody called. We called several times and finally confirmed... More

Been coming to this restaurant for years with family and friends. It was always one of our favorites, but this weeks Hermitage experience can only be defined as "dysfunctional". Not sure why management took a perfectly great business model and turned it into something less than ordinary. When the desert offerings overshadow the dinner entrees, something is wrong! For example,... More

Went here with work colleagues and I have to say that not only was the food amazing to the palate but our server Chelsea was great in making suggestions and making our dining experience a wonderful one! I had the watermelon , tomato/feta salad and the salmon entree. Both were tasty and presented in an artful manner that was captivating... More

This is where you have your birthday or celebration dinner. Or any other time you want a great meal. Foodie food, and it's superb. I have eaten here a dozen times and never had even a single item that wasn't excellent. Seafood, meats, specials you can choose at will and will be happy. Very comfortable room with great servers. Even... More

I went here for as they listed it the "quintessential" Vermont experience on ice. I get there and I park my car. I then find out that I have to walk on the ice and ice and snow to get to a ridiculously SMALL frozen puddle. For rental skates and time on the puddle it cost 20 dollars. They don't... More

Walked in at 8PM tonight (busy holiday weekend) after being turned away by another restaurant nearby. The hostess and the manager were at the front and the place was packed. They said they could squeeze us in somewhere and both ran in different directions trying to find a place for us. Within 10 minutes we were seated. Our waitress was... More
