“Very Pleasant”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This inn was very pleasant and my trip there was great! The breakfast basket I received outside the door in the morning was a nice addition to the fantastic service you already receive. Overall, I'd recommend going.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, amd thank you for posting a review. Do come back and see us when we are a full service country inn once more. Breakfast in bed will be even better once we have our own kitchen up and running once more!

The Deerfield Inn was a pleasant surprise. We can' t wait for the historic portion to reopen in 2013 to try it again. The room we stayed in was very nice and the staff we met were very accomidating by preparing us a "Grab & Go" breakfast for our early morning departure.

We look forward to seeing you next year, too. It has seemed like such an age working on this project, but we know once we are back open it will be worth all the meetings, confabs, building codes, blue prints, and schematics. It will be good as well to get the rest of the inn full of love, life, and laughter, not just the carriage house, so the spirit and joy of this entire old property can return.

We scheduled a two-night anniversary trip stay here because it was on our travel route and had nice reviews. Before arriving, we were a little anxious about what the Carriage House accomodations would be like. We needed not worry. Our room was clean, spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff and hosts were very friendly and accomodating on a couple of special needs, and made great recommendations for dining. The complimentary tickets to Historic Deerfield sites was a nice touch, too. We were most pleased with our stay in this tranquil little town and this lovely inn.

We are so glad that you were pleasantly surprised by your stay here and had an enjoyable and relaxing time while celebrating your anniversary! Many congratulations on that special occasion, and we hope we see you here again for another anniversary so you can toast each other in our lovely restaurant once we are back up and fully restored! Thank you for taking the time to write. We appreciate that very much indeed.

I stayed there for a couple of days when I had to drop my daughter off to Deerfield Academy. It is a small nice carriage house. The rooms are very clean and the furniture and linens of the rooms are beautiful. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed but we had a nice basket for breakfast every morning and a coffee machine available all day.
The owner of the hotel is a wonderful lady who is on top of things there. The only thing is that you need to have a car there in order to move around and get some nice dining in the cities around.
I do recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Deerfield.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and we are glad you were happy to be here. It is true that we are off the beaten path here in Deerfield, and while that is great for peace and serenity, it is not so good while our restaurant is being restored if you are without a car and are hungry! We hope you will be able to come back next year to see all that we have accomplished. We wanted to keep the bones and character of this old property in tact and still comply with current code, so the restoration has been time consuming, but we think it will all be worth the wait!

We have stayed at the Deerfield Inn before the hurricane damage. It was definitely a five star stay. When we recently returned to the area for a cycling event we stayed at the carriage house because the inn is still being renovated. The room was very clean, but aside from a few pieces of very nice furniture, it lacked character. It could have been any Holiday Inn. It was well over priced for what it was. The people were friendly, though there isn't any service to speak of. Breakfast is delivered in a little basket to your doorstep. It consists of a muffin, yogurt and some juice. There is a coffee maker in the hallway but that is it. When the inn reopens the adjoining tavern should take care of that. The location is excellent. It is in the center of historic and beautiful Deerfield. We will give the inn another shot when it reopens but we wouldn't stay in the carriage house again.

I understand they are going through a challenging time but I do hope the actual inn will not be restored in the same style. That would be very sad.

Sorry you were not completely happy with your stay. It will take time, I think, for the carriage house to redevelop the character you find missing. It is hard starting out again with the spirit that gets imbued in lived-in houses having fled, and when everything is new it is true that there is that freshness of the ingenue who has not yet settled in to being a well-established player with the experience needed for a depth of character. I think that will come more and more as time goes by. We still care about our performance just as much! And for other TA readers out there, our breakfast pastries change every day and arrive each morning still warm and yummy from 2nd Street Bakery, and for the time being we are what we are - a B&B with no kitchen, no proper front desk, the minimum staff, and fresh juice, piece of local fruit, and a tub of local yogurt to your bedroom door, while the rest of the inn is restored.

My friend and I were pleased that the carriage house has been reopened after Irene's flooding. We had wanted for some time to spend a few days exploring Historic Deerfield. The cost was reasonable and the room delightful. Terry cloth bathrobes were in the closet for our use and the bath towels oversized. A fresh pitcher of ice water was in our room each day with coffee and tea available in the hall. Since the dining hall has not reopened yet, a basket of breakfast items was brought to our door each morning at 8AM. Our tour tickets were included with our stay at the Inn. We plan to return when renovations are complete and hope a tour of the Inn will be included.

How lovely that you took the time to write about your visit! Thank you so much. We like those chamois robes, too, especially as they are made from recycled materials, which is hard to believe when they are so soft and cozy! We will be so delighted to see you when we open the main inn again, and will be proud to give you a tour of the new kitchen, restaurant, and the Relaxing Room for massages! See you in the spring!

We stayed in the Carriage House during renovations of the Inn. Our room was lovely and the beds were so very comfortable. We loved the delicious breakfast delivered each morning outside of our door. The price is reasonable and the staff are excellent--- caring and personable and concerned about the welfare of the guests. We plan to return again and higly recommend the Inn.

The Deerfield Inn first opened in July 1884 while both a drought and grasshoppers were plaguing the village. The disasters went, but the guests stayed for "the atmosphere and charm of early days, with modern comfort and convenience" with breakfast starting at 30¢ and a room with running water from $1.50. Today we have 24 comfortable and pleasing guestrooms and farm-to-fork Champney's Restaurant & Tavern. We source locally, make our own infusions, support area microbrewers, and in our 131st year we remain the centerpiece of Old Deerfield, a National Historic Landmark, and a Select Registry Property. ... more   less
