“FIRST TIME there and Will be back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We went to Vermont to see the snow for my wife's birthday. We stayed at the Inn a few nights and found it to be charming, warm and equipped with everything. The restaurant was delicious and designed a special menu for us for a special Birthday dinner. Breakfast was also delicious. Ariel, the Inn keeper was on everything and very informative. We will be back and recommend highly!!!

My Wife and I recently stayed here for my Birthday in Jan. and this Inn was the Best place to stay. They have thought of everything and we're never put out if we asked for something which was rare. Great Food in the rstaurant also...The Chef Excelenet made all my favorite foods and designed a menu around it for my Birthday Dinner...it was AMAZING!!! Breakfast is also very good. The grounds are beautiful,rooms excellent and very warm..we had a room with a fire Place...so nice. ALL Staff very accomidating and pleasant..Vermont is very laid back and relaxing and romantic. Hotel VERY clean...no complaints..stay here! Sophia the dog is an added Treat!

We were lucky enought to stay at the Deerhill Inn for 4 nights over the New Year's Eve weekend. The inn was cozy, warm and inviting. We stayed in the Dahlia Room, which was immaculate and clean. The bed was a little soft for our liking, but everything else in the room was just like home. The bathroom and oversized tub were incredibly clean, and housekeeping straightened our room while we were at breakfast every morning. Breakfast in the dining room (and our room) was just delicious, fresh fruit, muffins with jams, coffees, teas, and a specialty omelette or french toast was just yummy. The main rooms were cozy, with comfortable couches and fireplaces. The little bar was great to just grab a quick soda or glass of wine/cocktail. Adriane and Scott were wonderful inn keepers and truly made us feel at home and welcoming during our stay. It was just a perfect romantic getaway for our first trip together. We cant wait to return again soon!

Room Tip: I would ask which rooms are further from the main living areas to ensure a little more privacy and q...

I had the pleasure to visit the Deer Hill for the first time and found it to be welcoming and quite comfortable. The spacious rooms are delightfully furnished with especially comfortable beds, dressers/desks, and extensive closets. Meals are excellent, especially the dinners, and I hope to return to try out the new creations of the Inn's chef. No chance of going bored, with plenty of activities, including an excellent library, board games, innumerable local outdoor attractions (skiing and hiking being the standouts), and reliable, fast Internet access. Scott and Ariane are so attentive and always available to resolve issues or just ensure a wonderful stay. I look forward to my next visit!

This is a wonderful spot for a singular getaway or group gathering. We chose this Inn to celebrate the birthdays of two of our group who had just turned 70. We were four couples,old friends, looking for a place to share a time together and enjoy good food and good company. Deerhill was not a disappointment in any category. The rooms were tastefully decorated, most with fireplaces, and the menu provided a variety of interesting appetizers,entrees,and deserts. We recommend the price fixe 4 course dinner at $95/couple-a great bargain. Breakfast is included in your room rate. The common areas downstairs and up are extremely comfortable and afford a homey atmosphere in which to gather for drinks,snacks and conversation. Don't miss the cookies. Owners Scott and Ariane made our visit all the more enjoyable. We'd like to visit again when the pool is open and the gardens are in bloom.

Room Tip: Rooms/Suites in the main part of the Inn overlook the garden areas and some have small comfortable d...

We were guests here at Deerhill Inn for dinner only. We went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Beautiful location and inviting the moment you walk in the door. Our table was right next to the fireplace and that only added to the ambience. Service was spot-on and welcoming. Menu was limited, but seemed to have something for all. Can't wait to go back!

Breakfast and dinner is always a very special treat! Cozy and warm with the fireplace lit. Many different birds to watch at the feeder as we ate. This was our 2nd visit. 1st stay was in the Tamarack room and we were very pleased with it. This time around we stayed in the Garden Suite which needs a little updating and rearranging. Wasn't able to watch tv in bed... Owner stated that is their next project to update that suite.

Room Tip: Tamarack is beautiful with a fireplace and double jacuzzi! Large bed, comfy couch! Nice back deck...

They just beat us to it! We will have Garden Suite upgraded in time for the Holiday Season - a new sofa and bedside rugs, cozy curtains and a second TV with cable and DVD player in the bedroom ... just some of the things we plan for our two-room suite. And of course Garden Suite will still have its super-comfortable king bed, the wonderful view of our ski mountains Haystack and Mount Snow from both of the two rooms, a large jetted tub, and its own entrance on the first floor at a quiet corner of the Inn. Like our guests, we value the unique character of our country Inn but we do constantly improve our room amenities to enhance the special experience of your stay with us in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
