Parker House Inn and Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 6 Quechee B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 28, 2011

My wife (American) and I (ex regular) dined at the hotel and had a very good meal. We spoke at length to the owner who gave us a tour of the accommodation available. He apologised for the meal on the grounds that his wife, the French born chef, had the night off, not that I would have known. Whilst the restaurant next door could be seen as a little more up market; I would vote for the less pretentious Parker House Restaurant on the basis of the menu evidence available, but that's very subjective but there again so are all reviews.

Two of us had dinner here and it was absolutely disappointing. $150 (including tip) for two glasses of wine, two starters, one desert, one coffee. The food was badly presented and pretentious. The steak tasted as if it had been immersed in water and then broiled. The mashed potatoes were watery. The starter fish melee was a joke. The wine was 10 dollars for the house red. The coffee was good. This place is very nice to visit but the food is totally overpriced.

Well, my husband is British and he is the host, but we are decidedly not a “British” restaurant, our motto “New England Farms, Warm French Flavors” we are definitely more Mediterranean above all else. $150.00 does seem rather high for the meal you described! So I added up the combination of food you described and the result I get is $79.00 not including tip or taxes… but if you go with the most expensive items on the menu, including the most expensive house red wine which start at $7 and go up to $10, then, sure, it can add up! Also, it seems you forgot to mention the entrée you ordered until the end of the review. Most of our appetizers are in the $6-10 range, The “Fish Melee” : I am assuming you mean the Smoked, Grilled Tasting board, which is meant to be a shared platter, is priced at 18.00 dollars and includes Grilled Shrimp cocktail (3); Scottish Smoked Salmon and Ducktrap Farms Smoked Trout; garnished with homemade horseradish crème, shallots, capers and toast points. The Steak entrée is a Hand Cut Strip loin and is grilled and the finished in the oven ($30) served with bourbon peppercorn crème topped with aged blue cheese. The mashed potatoes are done every afternoon before service and included butter, Local Heavy Cream, Shallots, Garlic and nutmeg in the traditional French Style. Thank you for taking the time to write this review….we wish we had the opportunity to take care of your apparent dissatisfaction at the time.

Our night away at the Parker House began with a martini (or two), progressed to a fine meal, perfectly paced, and with some great wine choices - and ended with a proper scotch (or two). Eight hours later, I was enjoying strong coffee, a decent Wifi connection, and eventually, a hearty breakfast.

This isn't your grandfather's B&B. Underneath the antique, tucked-in-the-country veneer is a upscale, cosmopolitan vibe. Adam and Alex are great hosts and made our little getaway a weekend to remember.

My boyfriend and I recently booked a room at this inn to celebrate our anniversary. We were very happy we did so!

Adam greeted us at the door and led us to our room (the Joseph room) which was spacious and offered nice view of the river. The bed could have been just a little more comfortable.

Later, when we left to visit nearby Woodstock, Adam was very personable and helpful with directions. Upon returning to the inn, we grabbed two seats the bar and had a FABULOUS meal, prepared by Adam's wife Alex. We started with the mini pork ribs (yum), and then the cheese and charcuterie plate, which was absolutely beautiful and tasted amazing. We split the lobster risotto and enjoyed a tasty (and reasonable) bottle of wine that Adam recommended. A perfect chocolate lava cake completed the night. Breakfast the next morning consisted of fresh fruit, pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs, OJ and coffee.

I highly recommend this inn to those who enjoy being treated well and the bistro to folks who really enjoy fantastic food in a unique , friendly and warm atmosphere. Adam made us feel like VIPs in his inn and our dinner at the bistro really felt like a celebration. I cannot wait to visit in the summer so we can enjoy the outdoor deck overlooking the river.

Delectable food, excellent wine and a cozy, welcoming atmosphere offered by chef owners/innkeepers Alex and Adam Adler -- must be the Parker House Inn and Restaurant in Quechee. As locals, we don’t usually have the opportunity to stay (although we always hear raves from the guests), but the food is wonderful. Tonight’s special was perfectly-cooked linguini with white clam sauce, tender clams and a generous shaving of parmesan. Not to mention the garlic – lots of garlic! If you want to see Vermont at its finest, this is the real deal. The pub atmosphere draws locals as well as fascinating visitors from “away,” and you can take part in a lively debate or sit back and take it all in (usually my preference). In the summer, the view from the deck overlooking the Ottaquechee River is breathtakingly beautiful – a glass of wine and dinner al fresco is the perfect ending after a busy workday.

Room on 2nd floor was attractive and spacious, but the bathroom was tiny and it was LOUD. Good thing: dinner in restaurant was outstanding.

We haven't actually stayed at the inn for a while since we live nearby, but we go there to eat as often as we can. Alex the chef has years of experience, but what makes her food so exceptional is that she's really an artist at heart, applying her unique skills and oversight to every dish. We also find Adam, the lead bartender, to be very attentive to everyone and a great conversationalist who never seems to repeat himself. As for the town of Quechee itself, besides the beautiful Quechee Gorge for which it's famous, there's a club in town with full workout rooms, gymnasium, swimming pool and other amenities that staying at the Parker House enables you to enjoy.
