“Tucked on a Hillside, A Charming Comfortable Inn”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This was our top choice of B and Bs in Vermont....Because it was relaxed, friendly and a warm and cozy atmosphere. With blazing fireplaces and exceptionally comfortable furniture and rooms throughout, this inn gave one a homey atmosphere. The barn walls were rustic and tasteful....The garden must have been fabulous before the frost...Cute bar area...The restaurant was excellent and service outstanding. Morning breakfast was greeted with birds and squirrels and even in the rain, the view was tranquil....We have the White Pine Suite and loved the space with sitting area, fire place and the extra amenities...I commented to the waitress that I had never been at a B and B where they had a cute plastic bag to take the shampoo and soap if you wished to do so. The water and cookies were special after the long drive. Can't wait to go back. I bet it is beautiful in the winter.

Room Tip: White Pine Suite had a bathroom ceiling that sloped...Just be aware. Loved the top floor....quiet as...

My wife and I had a the most wonderful time this past weekend celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary at the Deerhill Inn. The rooms are great and very cozy and comfortable. We both thought the food was EXCEPTIONAL! The surrounding views are very beautiful and the innkeepers Scott and Ariane are warm, friendly and very, very accomodating.

Room Tip: They have 2 suites with in room jacuzzi's!

Our first time will not be our last. I cannot say enough good things about this Inn. Upon arrival, we were greeted, welcomed and given the tour. Both of the owners could not have made us feel more welcome and tended to all our needs before we even asked. No detail of comfort was left undone. We had a wonderful room on the second floor with a balcony that looked out to the mountains. When we entered our room, the fireplace was going, water and homemade cookies were waiting for us and the room itself was so warm clean and inviting. After a long day of walking, we returned to hot beverages and snacks before dinner, a nice jet bath with the most comfortable robes. The food at the restaurant was OUTSTANDING. In the morning, we went downstairs for a wonderful breakfast, (included) and sat and relaxed and planned out our day. We felt so comfortable there, we did not want to leave. We have traveled many places and by far this Inn is on our all time favorites. Do not miss this gem. You will not want to leave.

Room Tip: We had the Evergreen room. Looked out to the mountains and had a lovely fireplace and the most comf...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in October 2012, the setting is wonderful with great views of the mountains. Try and get one of the front rooms on the first floor, these rooms are very large, have the best views and Veranda’s, great for sitting out with a glass of chilled wine.

Do use the restaurant, breakfast is wonderful and the dinners are to die for.

It was our 40th Wedding Anniversary during our stay here and I had prearranged breakfast in bed plus Flowers and Champaign for my wife when we returned from our day out. They provide wonderful Champaign and the Flowers were superb.

I would highly recommend this Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front on First Floor have the best views.

Our stay at the Inn was little short of fabulous!
Ariane was curteous and very helpful to everyone in the wedding party and her staff were superb during every phase of the wedding!
I cannot say enough about the service that we received at the Inn and the beds were extremely comfortable!

Room Tip: Unless you have a disability choose a room facing the valley on the second floor.

We returned to Deerhill Inn after an absence of 9 years to celebrate our anniversary! At first, we were disappointed not to see the same owners, but were delighted that things were just as wonderful as we remembered them! We had a room with a balcony with a wonderful view of the mountains. Highlights included a massage that they arranged for us, the yummy breakfast and gourmet dinner.

The innkeeper/owners, Ariane & Scott, run a magnificent inn. There is little reason to leave starting with the early morning coffee, the magnificent breakfast cooked to order, the afternoon refreshments, and wonderful dinners if you choose to dine in. If you prefer dinner elsewhere, they will provide great alternatives. Simply sitting on the grounds on pretty days or in front of your gas fireplace in the evenings is enough, but if you want more, the activities close by on the ski slopes or in Bennington and Brattleboro, and the hiking in the area will ensure you will sleep well.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies or patios are best -- we prefer the mountain views facing west.
