The Dorset offers many positive attributes if one is considering a stay in SW Vermont. The guestrooms have been obviously modernized and are comfortable and roomy . The Tavern is a great place to relax with drinks by the fire; the dining and inn staff were on the top of their game. Manchester is a ten minute drive(depending on weather) with many activities available.
Several issues to mention: (1) Sony Bravia Flatscreens are nice, but picture quality is poor for some reason (2) we discovered "hairs of unknown origin" in our bed upon turndown...somewhat disconcerting (3) parking seemed limited.
We would consider a return stay and hope that housekeeping in the rooms receive a little more attention. This is a country inn with great potential.
