The Vermont Inn was recently sold and now has new owners.We were trying to make dinner reservations and kept getting an answering machine saying to leave a message. Odd for a restaurant. No "the restaurant is open, here are our hours, days open"
Someone did call me right back and assured me the dining room was open. When they are busy elsewhere at the Inn they leave the machine on... We were seated immediately. The restaurant was very not very busy. Our server was young and enthusiastic, but not super knowledgeable about food. We ordered a Caesar Salad and the mussels du' jour to split, (which that day was with wine and chorizo). The salad was very basic, with packaged croutons. The mussels however were fantastic! Good portion, great wine sauce and a hint of heat and spice from the chorizo. Served with baguette/crostini points to dip in the sauce. I ordered the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked (medium as ordered) but the winning combinations was the varied and plentiful accoutrements on the plate. There were a sauteed apple compote, a potaoe gratin, hot and cheesy AND crusty, sauteed spinach with garlic, braised red cabbage, and green beans. All were different, delightful and delicious! They had a varied and fairly priced wine list, but the white wine came in one of those cheap, small typical white wine glasses. I say they should upgrade the glasses if for nothing else but presentation. We did not have dessert but they had a nice selection.
The chef seems well versed and talented but the bright young staff could use some polishing.

We arrived very late (about 2 a.m. ) and the innkeeper gave us directions for checking in; the room was warm and clean and inviting. Had two wonderful breakfasts - the omelets of the day were delicious! After a day of skiing at Killington, came home to enjoy cookies and hot cider in the parlor; and then the sauna on the 2nd floor. We were not there long enough to use the fitness room or hot tub on the 1st floor but they looked clean and accessible. Decided to eat in the Inn that evening and our water was personable and knowledgeable. The meal was perfect. Enjoyed soups, a special appetizer, and I had one of the "comfort food" menu items (chili) while my husband had a fancier duck entree. Both were perfectly flavored and served. We also shared a special dessert item (crepes). Altogether a lovely stay.

The flatbread, crab and artichoke dip, and mussel apps were great. The comfort entrees were just that, and very tasteful – we ordered the meatloaf, pasta and bolognese, and mac and cheese. They were accommodating to the vegetarian in our party. Atmosphere was incredible – oil candle light, sat next to a wood-burning fire. Impressive selection of wine and beer – including a few rare beers. And wait staff was very attentive. Highly recommended for a family and romantic dinner.

Inn under new ownership but dining room hasn't suffered! Our party of 4 all enjoyed their very yummy meals: chowder was a big hit, as was the steak. Raved about the flatbread!

The food was v good and not too pricey. Staff were attentive. It's not really a suitable place for kids as it aims for quiet and refined. Actually it's a bit too quiet! We were not mad about their choice of music - played very low and had songs like Flight of the Bumblebee, a bagpipe song, etc. Unless there is a large group present you can hear everyone's conversation. Although it's fine dining you don't have to worry about dressing up. We didn't think it was hard to find - there is a sign on the main road and it's just a few hundred feet off the road and has a lighted menu at the entrance.
