I considered not writing a review, because I don't want anyone else knowing about this incredible gem so I can have it all to myself!! But alas, I figured it would help out Ariane and Scott and they are wonderful people, so here is my review. The Deerhill Inn is such a wonderful place for a romantic getaway. And Ariane and Scott made any accommodation they could to make our stay perfect. The room was so quaint, the food was DELICIOUS, and the inn smells amazing. Fires and classical music. What's not to love?? And my fiancee and I are 30 years old, so anyone of any age could enjoy this inn. We will DEFINITELY be back.
Ariana and Scott (Sophie too) were so lovely and accommodating. They made our stay personal and we can't to return for a yearly weekend away. We were bummed to find the chef out due to a surgery, but heard great reviews from others guest and will be sure to try a meal next year. The inn was clean and cozy, our room was spacious and true to website descriptions. My husband and I felt completed pampered and relaxed. The multiple fireplaces were a cozy touch to our evening cocktail and tasty breakfast. Thanks for a great stay.
OMG!!!! One of the best place I have ever stayed! The owners are adorable, helpful and least to say.......very friendly! The place itself is just amazing beautiful view and it's so clean that I couldn't believe! The place is just spotless. I never had the courage to use any bathtub from anywhere else other than my own house, but honestly, I used theirs! I see myself coming back to this place without a doubt or a curiosity to check anywhere else around it. What a beautiful weekend I had there! So very lovely!
The Deerhill Inn is very charming with many nice extra touches like in-room water bottles and cookies, afternoon tea with homemade cookies and in summer lemonade too. Lovely pool, delicious country breakfasts included in your stay, and we also enjoyed a wonderful dinner one evening too. The owners are very charming and made you feel right at home!
The 1846 Inn is wonderful place to stay in the West Dover area of VT. Rooms here a well kept and very clean. The bed and pillows were comfortable and were not worn out. The Inn keeper and staff are great. They are all very friendly and provide excellent customer service. I would stay here again and would recommend the inn to friends.
Phil and his staff offer comfortable rooms, and a truly wonderful dining experience. From their hearty Vermont style breakfast to the truly mouth-watering dinners. Their 1846 Tavern offers great drinks, meals and entertainment. Have been going for a number of years, and plan to continue to do so!
Upon first impression, the porch was unkempt with wood strewn about. Dog bowls at the front door. Check in was 4pm and they were kind enough to let us check in for 3:30pm. The room was tasteful, had a gas fireplace and decorated with antique pieces as expected. Closet was musty and although the room had a private bath; the shower was small - a larger person would not have enough room. When I book a B&B, it is my expectation that breakfast is included in the overnight stay. There is a shenanigans coupon of $10 TOWARDS breakfast, which really does NOT cover breakfast. There is what they call a TO GO room of breakfast foods, which may work well with the ski season but did not sit well with me. Foods from that room are not subject to the 16% tax and gratuity. My husband chose to get foods from that room and I chose to order an omelet off the menu. Even though he got his foods from the to go room and we got our own coffee (also from that room), when my bill came - ALL items were on the bill and the 16% was factored on the total. No waitstaff was involved with those items. The bill was quite a surprise. When I squared up on the stay, to pay for the 16% on the room (as stated in the description), I was overcharged and innkeeper had to void and correct the balance. Mistake? Don't know. If my husband paid the bill, he would not have caught it. So, for the ski season, this may be what they need to do, but in the off season, it did not work for me. Would not return.
Love this place. Have been going there for the last 4 years. Phil is so friendly and very accommodating. Phil went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. We were greeted by our first names. The place is immaculate. Love that fact that we can go downstairs and have something to eat and have some cocktails without having to leave the inn and the entertainment is always great. This is our "go to" place in Vermont.
Nice clean rooms, well appointed. Some of the best gourmet food and desserts available created by NE Culinary Institute trained chefs and pastry chef. Live music all night in the 1846 Tavern lead to an enjoyable night of celebrating!! You can't beat the welcoming and engaging owners to make you feel at home and relaxed. Highly recommend!!
Wonderful Vermont Inn - love everything about it. Amazing Inn Keeper (Phil) attends to every need with a smile. Breakfast heavenly - the cheese omelet with fresh mushrooms was incredible. The bar is a great place for music, drinks and wonderful casual food - the musicians were wonderful. It is the place to be! The historic feel and beautiful wooden floors throughout add to the charm - rooms are lovely. We'll be regulars!
Room was nice disappointed that jacuzzi didn't work. They Say on the web that fall has fell breakfast and it wasn't. And It said fireplace it should say gas fireplace or whatever it was. We picked this hoping for a real fireplace and for the tub to Work. The staff where really nice
This was my first time at the Inn. Phil and Kathy treated us like family. The South Suite was amazing. The 1846 Tavern was Outstanding! Great Home Cooked meal. All the Staff were polite and caring. This was one Romantic getaway that was a Home Run...
Lovely old Vermont inn. The room, hence, was a little small small, but nicely appointed. Wifi is available at no charge. The owners, Phil and Kathy, and staff are very friendly, and helpful. We really enjoyed the 1846 Tavern. After long days touring southern Vermont, it was so nice to just drop into the tavern for good drinks, great food, and live music. We ate in the tavern all three nights, and enjoyed every meal. I would recommend the inn to everyone. The breakfasts were also excellent. Kudos to the chef and kitchen staff. Located in West Dover, it is outside do the crowds and traffic of Wilmington. Lots of outdoor activities, shopping, and dining in the local area.
What a wonderful place for a calm and romantic getaway. Most hospitable, and accomodating. We arrived around 2:30 pm. As already planned, a nice bottle of wine with a Vermont cheese selection awaited us in our room. In room breakfast was truly delicious, warm and served right on time. We really liked the scones as a special attention that we had not ordered. Room service was efficient and very accomodating. Saturday night we had supper. Everything was tasteful and prepared to perfection . If we get the opportunity, we will return. Meanwhile, we mention this gem of a B&B to all our friends.
It was charming, romantic, and quaint, as is to be expected from a 100-year-old inn. Food, service and staff were great. Bed was very comfortable. What more would one ask for? Would I bring foreign dignitaries here? No. Would I suggest it to dear friends? Yes.
My boyfriend and I had a brief stay here, and we both loved the inn. It is quintessentially New England, which was what we were looking for, and comfortably elegant. We were impressed with the restaurant downstairs. Although we originally made reservations for the dining room, the live music and more laid back attitude of the bar area made us decide to eat there. The food was pricey but generally very good.
We took advantage of the living social special - $129 for a Sat. night plus a $20+ resort fee. The inn was built in 1894. We stayed in room #6. The room was clean, a little worn, with a very small bathroom, great water pressure, acceptable bed but extremely hard pillows. My husband did not sleep all night. I had a headache from the pillow but did manage to get some sleep. That said, the restaurant food was superb for Sat. night's dinner and we enjoyed live music at the adjoining tavern/bar area. A country breakfast was also very nice. Good value for the money, but I would not want to pay full price for that room.
Ariane was so accommodating to us. We had to scramble for another venue for my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner and she was there for us. She went out of her way to make sure that everything was absolutely perfect for us. The chef worked with us on various concerns and everything was lovely!!! The dining room, the view, the service, and the food were all exceptional. We were completely satisfied and will certainly be going back again for a visit!!! Thank you, Ariane and Scott!
We came in summer, for a family funeral. They helped us select rooms for those with special needs, they catered a nice lunch after the service, stored the flower arrangements, many details. The atmosphere is homelike, with several "living rooms" where you can gather. Free hot breakfast is great, watching sun rise over forest. Not fancy -- no a/c, in-room microwaves etc. But a beautiful location, friendly hosts, and reasonable rates. We hope to visit in all four seasons!
