Really I think we'd like to give 3.5 stars. We found Windham Hill Inn to be a really beautiful B&B in it's setting. We really enjoyed how quiet it was-no busy noisy roads to bother us-just lots and lots of chatty birds. We definitely enjoyed some of the amenities the B&B had to offer such as the pool, walks on the property, the gardens, and the tennis court.
We stayed in the North Loft room which was very spacious-we were greeted with a nice plate of fresh fruit, bottles of Saratoga water and a bowl of candy which was a lovely welcome. We found the room to be very clean and tidy-but we also found it to be very dated in decor. Our major beef with the room was the linens-the sheets felt like sand paper and the towels had been around the block-I guess when paying $400 a night this is a detail that should be paid attention to.
In our 3 night stay-we had the 4 course dinner included in our stay. I'm very glad that we were not paying out of pocket for the dinner. We felt some of it was very good but some of it was really not so good. In the dining room-we also noticed that there was an attempt to have a very fancy air-when we were in Vermont-in an old farm house! I would rather had attention paid attention to really excellent and clean food rather than-would I like a silly bottle of European sparkling water!
The breakfast was hit and miss too. We did enjoy the homemade granola, yogurt and fresh fruit bar. Also, there is an option for simple hearty oatmeal instead of 2 other rich options. Some of the breakfast were very good-others were dogged with trying to look fancy while not executing good taste-case in point my gray hashbrown cake that was extremely undercooked and inedible.
There were really some nice things about this B&B-but there were really some marks not being made-and for the money it just didn't seem quite right.
