“A Hidden Gem in a Lovely Setting”
Reviewed 27 April 2009

My husband and I just returned from an amazing anniversary getaway at the newly renovated and re-opened Red Clover Inn, and we can't recommend this place highly enough. We are loyal guests of this Inn's "sister" property (The Tyler Place in Highgate, VT), and found the owner's same scrupulous attention to comfort, warmth, and elegance here. The feeling is rustic yet graceful (there's little of the kitchy faux-Victorian tweeness often found in other Vemont inns), with wooden beams, fireplaces, and rooms awash in light. Our room (Emma's) was cozy but very comfortable, with skylights, a two-person soaking tub, and a warm French country ambiance. (One minor quibble: there were no shades on the ample windows and skylights.) There was no "check-in" when we arrived, just a very warm welcome from Hector and Andrea, who led us to our room and gave us a tour of the property. Andrea, the massage therapist, made our stay truly memorable. She gave my husband and I the best massages of our life, and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Hector was singularly gracious, from presiding over the small but well-appointed bar (you must try "Hector's Nector"!), to preparing a roaring bonfire for guests to enjoy after dinner, to thoughtfully bringing a New York Times for my husband (a crossword puzzle junkie.) The Tyler family has also found an absolute treasure in Reggie, the chef who concocts amazing appetizers and meals using locally sourced, often organic, ingredients. The food here is among the best I've had anywhere, at a far more reasonable cost, and with none of the pretension or attitude some destinations offer. Finally, the setting is idyllic: the Red Clover Inn is nestled in a gently rolling landscape of bright green lawns and lovely flowers, with ancient apple trees and a charming pond (complete with ducks). A snow-capped Mt. Pico looms just over the inn, and there's little better in life than soaking in the outdoor hot tub under the amazing stars in this setting. Can't wait to come back!

We tired of the same ol' box hotels along Rte 4 for a wknd of skiing. This place is the ultimate find! It has been recently refurbished and is comfy, clean and a charming inn . There was plenty of space for the kids to hang out after skiing and the food was excellent - AND didn't break the bank. All local vendors which makes you feel even better about staying there. Colleen the innkeeper will go the extra mile to make your stay just perfect. It's sooo close to Pico and Killington but when you are there you feel like you are in pastoral vermont. Go NOW because it will be very busy once everyone finds out about this treasure.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at the Red Clover Inn in Rutland, VT. I had to scramble to find a hotel room at the last minute and was very excited to find a last minute special at this location. They did a spectacular job renovating the place! All of the rooms are very clean and classic and very welcoming. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. I did not stay for dinner but the organic and local foods were nice to see on the menu. It felt more like staying with friends than a hotel. Its a great location for a romantic getaway or just a peaceful retreat from a busy life. I will absolutely be visiting there again! :-)
