“When I think of a Vermont Inn, I now think of West Mountain Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

My wife and I stayed at West Mountain Inn for her birthday (Dec. 23-24) on our way to CT. We spent the early part of the day in Manchester (just a few minutes north) and had lunch at the Equinox.Between the Equinox and WM Inn we really got into the Christmas spirit (think of all those old romantic movies about Christmas at a Vermont Inn).
We arrive at 4 pm and were very pleased with our room. They first took us on a tour of the inn before we settled in. One thing that was a particular delight was dinner. We ate at the inn which attracts quite an outside, local clientele. Dinner was great and everything was changed to our room which - another surprise - we found to be very reasonable at checkout time. The Inn is gorgeous and the staff was great. After dinner we enjoyed an evening in front of the fireplace and just sipped wine, talked and enjoyed the Christmas music. We live on the Vermont border in upstate NY and spend a lot of time in VT. This is my best bet for a reasonably price, romantic stay with a great restaurant and ambiance.When do folks nowadays just get to slow down and smell the roses. This is the place I'd recommend to do it.
My wife said it was her best birthday ever.

This is a charming inn on Vermont hills. The main house is very comfortable and attractive. Because we have dogs, we stayed at the Mill House down the hill. Usually "dog houses" are not the most comfortable, but this place was lovely, right over the Batten Kill river, and it was a house, not just a room: large kitchen and dining room with a wood burning stove, and 2 bedrooms upstairs. Very sweet. If you have dogs, don't hesitate. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this spot.

Last week end was pure pleasure at the West Mountain Inn. We celebrated our friends birthday complete with a delicious cake made by the chef. The West Mountain Inn has this feeling of comfort and warmth, the staff makes you feel like family. I can see why large groups of friends and family return year after year to enjoy the delicious food, the calm comfort and the beautiful grounds. Thank-you to Amy, the chef and all of the wonderful staff!

Room Tip: Go for a king size and a fireplace room.

What could possibly be better than spending time at the West Mountain Inn? Staying there for a fraction of the usual cost, that's what! We recently booked another trip to this amazing B&B during their November mid-week promotion and spent a wonderful 2 night stay in the Rockwell Kent suite. While we definitely appreciated the spaciousness of this room and the inviting king size bed, the primary reason we requested it was for the real wood burning fireplace. Relaxing in front of the toasty fire each evening with a good bottle of wine was the best way to wrap up our days. Although the Rockwell Kent suite has some antique furnishings which are certainly pretty to look at and which contribute to the overall pleasing impression of the suite, these "romantic" pieces do not receive high marks in the creature comfort category. I was very pleased to find that a couple of user friendly arm chairs had been placed in this room in addition to the vintage pieces. The bathroom has been totally upgraded - we loved the new dual shower and tiled floor!

Being able to have dinner on the premises is an added perk as there are not many dining options in the immediate vicinity of the inn. Our dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. We were seated at a cozy fireside table which further enhanced our dining experience. Breakfast each morning was plentiful with many selections available. Each morning we were enthusiastically greeted by Mary Beth when we arrived in the dining room. This lady is so incredibly gracious and made certain that our day started off in the best possible fashion. She knew our first names and used them which just added to that overall "at home" feeling that is so prevalent at West Mountain Inn. West Mountain is a truly remarkable place in Vermont where it is entirely possible to simply enjoy being who you are, enjoy being where you are, and enjoy being with that special person in your life. We have been lamenting the fact that our visit was far too short and we are looking forward to our next visit to this magical spot. While the purpose of our trip was just to be able to spend some time away from the stress and demands of our daily routines, we managed a visit to Hildene and highly recommend it as a "must see" when in the Arlington/Manchester area.

An absolutely amazing place for a wedding weekend, we couldn't have dreamed up a better place. The service was outstanding and we highly recommend it. We loved the alpacas - we even got to feed them. Everyone in our family had a great time.

We took advantage of the November mid-week special and were thoroughly impressed by the West Mountain Inn. Attention to detail was evident everywhere, from warm woods in the dining room, wonderfully furnished common rooms, an extra-comfy king size bed and decor touches that created a homey atmosphere. The breakfast offerings were "to die for" especially the Irish oatmeal with butter, cream, cinnamon and raisins! What enhanced every aspect of our stay was a staff that was both welcoming and accommodating. We look forward to a return visit this winter!

My husband and I are recently retired and finally got the opportunity to use a Groupon we had purchased a little more than a year ago when life was too busy to use it! Alas, the Groupon had expired, but when we called to use the value of it, the West Mountain Inn told us they would still honor the Groupon deal. We were welcome to stay for two nights with $40 dining credit as purchased! This was a generous offer on the part of the Inn. Because it was recently past peek leaf season we had our selection of many beautifully decorated rooms. The location was lovely, food delicious and hiking behind the inn fun. We got to watch the Red Sox win games 4 & 5 on the flat screen tv located on the main floor. All and all a wonderful experience. We hope to return in the future!
