Escape to Deerhill Inn
Whether you're planning to ski in the Mountains, celebrate a Holiday or a special day, or just take time out from a busy and challenging world, we can take care of everything at Deerhill Inn.
On a peaceful hillside just above the historic village of West Dover, Deerhill Inn looks out across the snow-covered trees of the Deerfield Valley towards Vermont's Green Mountains and the ski slopes of Mount Snow and Haystack Mountain.
It's the perfect place for a celebration. Thanksgiving is warm, friendly and traditional with delicious food. Christmas and the Holidays are cozy with beautifully-decorated trees, blazing log fires, natural wreaths and roping and Holiday fare to savor in the Deerhill Inn Restaurant. If you're celebrating a special day of your own - or a special person - we have the perfect answer with a selection of beautiful and unique guest rooms and a choice of treats and indulgences to make everyone feel cared-for.
With Mount Snow Base Lodge just seven minutes away, some of the best downhill skiing in the East is right on the doorstep. And you're perfectly placed for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or just hiking the snowy woods - dog sledding and snowmobiling are nearby. If you'd prefer something calmer, try a peaceful sleigh ride in a red Vermont sleigh behind a fine pair of perfectly-matched black Friesians.
Twinkling lights and snow covered trees make this a perfect place to refresh and relax. Stretch out with a glass of wine or a local beer beside one of our log fires in the cozy and welcoming Sitting Room and take in the stunning view of the wooded slopes dressed in sparkling winter white - or there's a cute and cozy Bar if you'd prefer a cocktail. Enjoy Afternoon Tea chatting with other guests or spend time quietly together. Then curl up beside the fireplace in your guest room wrapped in a fluffy blanket or soft robe after a soak in your own deep jetted tub. Read or doze, catch up on that movie you've been wanting to stream, and perfectly relax. Stressed and sore? Our talented Masseuse will come right to your room and soothe the aches and pains away. Something delicious to eat? A la carte Country Breakfasts are a special event every morning, and delicious Dinners feature fresh local ingredients followed by indulgent desserts.
If you'd like to explore the beautiful Vermont countryside, there are short drives on plowed roads to small towns with craft, art and antique shops, galleries and great local restaurants.
However you spend your days, your beautifully-decorated guest room will be waiting for you when you come home. Each room or suite is unique, cozy and welcoming and all feature luxury robes and fine bed linens, L'Occitane amenities and fast, free Wi-Fi. With Mountain views or private decks, many rooms have jetted tubs, rainforest showers, fireplaces and TV/DVD players to make your stay extra-special.
But above all, whenever you come and whatever you do, you are always warmly welcomed to our home in Vermont's unique and lovely Green Mountains. Come and see us soon!

Staying at Deerhill Inn
What makes our Inn special? Deerhill Inn is one of the few remaining luxury Vermont retreats not owned by an out-of-State corporation.
Learn more about staying with us ...Owners Scott and Ariane live at the Inn and you'll feel welcomed to our home with the reassurance of knowing there is always someone to help with whatever you need - but never, ever feel intruded upon. In Winter we'll light a log fire for you so you can curl up and be cozy, in Summer we'll carry your cocktail out to the Pool while you stretch out in Vermont's gentle sunshine. Our Inn is not smart or sleek, but it's not full of doilies and frilly pillows either. If you enjoy an English Country House atmosphere of antique furniture, pretty fabrics, modern amenities and warm and unobtrusive service, you'll be comfortable and happy here.
