we enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable weekend at the dorset inn, a gift from my very thoughtful children :) although i have spent much time vacationing in vermont, i had never been to dorset. the inn itself was very cozy and welcoming on the chilly first weekend of spring, with fires blazing in the many impressive fireplaces throughout the historic building. there was a very relaxed atmosphere about the place, and we found our room, the myrick, to be attractive, clean, and comfortable. when i asked about some bed pillows more similar to mine at home, a very accommodating member of the good-natured staff brought me a sampling of choices to my room, which i very much appreciated. the bathroom was impressive and tastefully decorated, with a large and deep jacuzzi tub. we dined in at the restaurant both nights, and the filet mignon was one of the best i have ever had. anywhere. portions were perfect, in my opinion, and service was excellent. breakfasts were just as good, and served in the lovely sun room area. really very nice. we found proximity to manchester quite convenient, and we hope to return again.
