A Note to our Guests

More than 70% of Vermonters are now vaccinated, and there are no longer any testing or quarantine requirements for visitors to Vermont whether they are vaccinated or not. Visitors do not have to sign a Compliance Statement.

Vermont State and the Town of Dover have lifted their masking and physical distancing mandates if you are fully vaccinated (you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your final shot). If you are vaccinated, please bring your vaccination certificate and be ready to show it if you are asked. Visitors who are not yet vaccinated must still wear a mask in public spaces.

Fully vaccinated visitors to the Inn may choose whether to wear a mask or not. If you are not vaccinated yet, we ask that you help us keep you safe by wearing a mask in the meantime.

All our Covid-19 enhanced hygiene protocols remain in place, and we continue to offer optional in-room Breakfast at no extra charge. You can find details of rooms with outside access under Rooms & Rates, and information about local dining under our Dining page. Many local events which were cancelled last year will now go ahead - you can find more information under Things to Do.

We so much look forward to sharing summertime in peaceful and beautiful Vermont with you!

Ariane, Scott & Josie

Escape to Deerhill Inn

Cool mornings, warm sunny days and cozy nights with bright stars - Spring has come to Deerhill Inn! Rest and recharge, hike through our woods or drive in our beautiful countryside. Leave the outside world behind and enjoy the fresh green growth of our hillsides and pastures.

On a peaceful hillside above the historic village of West Dover, Deerhill Inn looks out across the tree-clad slopes of the Deerfield Valley towards Vermont's Green Mountains and the ski runs of Mount Snow and Haystack Mountain.

It's the perfect place to relax - Vermont's clear air and peaceful countryside are soothing and calm, taking you back to another, gentler time - and the Inn is a warm, cozy, inviting sanctuary. Celebrate a special day - or a special person - in one of our beautiful and unique guestrooms with a choice of treats and indulgences to make everyone feel romantic and cared-for.

Spring and summer bring sparkling new green to the hillsides and warm, breezy weather. It's the time for hiking through the woods and biking or driving past farms with contented cows enjoying the new pasture. Visit local farm-stands for the freshest produce and sample cheese and maple syrup. Explore pretty villages with quaint little shops to browse. Galleries, museums and historic houses open for the season, together with our two international-class golf courses. Nearby lakes offer water sports. Take a guided fishing trip on the Deerfield River; try horseback riding or a carriage drive, or just pick some strawberries!

Fall offers sweeping vistas of hillsides covered with brightly-colored Foliage, changing daily. Once you've recharged and are ready for a new experience, there's plenty to do exploring Vermont's woods and farms on quiet country roads, tasting cheese, wine, beer and cider, picking apples and visiting welcoming small towns with craft, art and antique shops, galleries and great local restaurants. Hike a local trail, or ride the lift to the summit of Mount Snow for breathtaking views.

In winter Southern Vermont becomes a playground, with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and snowmobiling all near the Inn. With Mount Snow base lodge just seven minutes away, some of the best downhill skiing in the East is right on the doorstep. If you'd prefer something calmer, take a peaceful sleigh-ride through snow-covered trees, in a red Vermont sleigh behind a fine pair of perfectly-matched black Frisians. Or just enjoy the twinkling stars above the snowy hills and the bright sunshine and blue skies of a perfect winter day.

However you spend your days, your beautifully-decorated guestroom will be waiting for you when you come home. Each room or suite is unique, cozy and welcoming with luxury robes and fine bed linens complimented by L'Occitane amenities. There are coffee and tea makers 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.

Curl up in beside the fireplace in your guestroom wrapped in a soft robe after a soak in your own deep jetted tub, nibble on chocolate chip cookies, sip a glass of wine or a cocktail and forget the outside world for a little while. Sleep deeply in your comfy bed and in the morning, enjoy an à la carte Country Breakfast, in our Dining Rooms with their beautiful views of the tree-covered Green Mountains or privately in your own guestroom.

But above all, whenever you come and whatever you do you are always warmly welcome in our home in Vermont's unique and lovely Green Mountains. Come and see us soon!

Breakfast at the Inn

Our full, cooked country breakfast is a special event - and it's included in the price of your room.

Start with perfect home-baked scones accompanied by local jams and butter, then perhaps you'd enjoy a traditional home-cooked country feast with cage-free eggs, bacon, ham and country potatoes all from our local farms. Or one of Chef's unique omelets with the fillings you choose? Try the blueberry pancakes ... Delicious fruits come accompanied by locally-made organic yoghurt and Vermont granola, oatmeal is served with brown sugar, dried fruits and nuts - and Vermont Maple Syrup, of course. There's locally-roasted coffee - our very own Deerhill blend roasted specially for us - and a large selection of specialty teas and herbal infusions. You may not even need lunch!

Explore Southern Vermont

Mount Snow is just seven minutes from the Inn offering first-class skiing and snowboarding for all skill levels. Close-by there's cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, husky-mushing - and romantic sleigh-rides. Summer brings hiking, golfing, fishing, biking, canoeing, kayaking and lake boating - and if you're still looking for romance, try a two-person carriage ride! Stratton and Bromley Mountains and the quaint towns of Wilmington, Brattleboro and Manchester are just a short drive away. There are galleries, craft and antique shops, museums, historic houses, theaters, concerts, pretty farms and villages, cheese and wine makers and sugar-houses - and fabulous Fall Foliage driving tours. Then home to the Inn, for a truly memorable dinner and a restful sleep under Vermont's magical starry skies.

Deerhill Dining

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.
