Escape to Deerhill Inn
On a peaceful hillside above the historic village of West Dover, Deerhill Inn looks out across the beautiful Deerfield Valley towards Vermont's lovely Green Mountains. Dressed in the bright green of early spring, the deep green of high summer, the red and gold of Fall or the sparkling white of winter, the view of the wooded slopes is always stunning. Watch the changing light over the Mountains and breathe deeply - the air is pure and clean, filled with oxygen from Vermont's five million acres of forest - it's a perfect place to take time-out and just relax with the special person in your life.
You're ready for something more? There's plenty to do in vibrant Southern Vermont. Skiing on Mount Snow, of course - less than ten minutes from the Inn, with all kinds of other winter sports nearby. Spend a day on our world-class Golf Course or brush up your game at The Original Golf School. Hike the Forest and Mountains, or just wander the gentle trails of the Deerfield Valley past ponds where beavers have been busy. Bike down Mount Snow's challenging trails or explore the winding roads around Wilmington and West Dover. A pleasant ten-minute drive from the Inn, beautiful Lake Whitingham offers water sports and boat trips. If you're in search of a complete escape, canoe or kayak on nearby back-country Lakes Raponda and Sadawga - there won't be another soul in sight.
If you'd rather do your exploring by car, there are lovely drives through the glorious Southern Vermont countryside, stopping to browse antique and craft shops or to sample beer, wine and cheese from local producers. If you'd like a comfortable day out, take a trip to Quechee to see the Gorge, to Woodstock, or to the unique Vermont Country Store.
And when you come home in the evening, our beautifully-decorated guest rooms are waiting for you. Each unique and welcoming room or suite features luxury robes and bed linens, L'Occitane amenities and 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-specially romantic. Comfortable Sitting Rooms welcome guest to enjoy Afternoon Tea or a glass of wine - curl up with a book or chat with a friend. There's a cute and cozy Bar if you'd prefer a cocktail and a little Library to browse in or tackle a game of chess. Our á la carte full, cooked country breakfasts are a daily event designed by you. Delicious dinners in our Dining Room watching the sun set over the Green Mountains feature fresh local ingredients followed by indulgent house-made desserts. And if you need to cool off, there's a pretty Pool in the back garden.
Whichever room you choose, and however you plan to spend your time, you are always warmly welcomed to our home, in Vermont's unique and lovely Green Mountains.

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.
