“Nice B&B Near Mt. Snow”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We enjoyed a night in the North Suite. This room had a small sitting area with a fireplace - very nice. This B&B has a restaurant and bar. We visited friends in the area so we didn't get to use the restaurant for dinner or the bar - but we would definitely stay here again to use these amenities. The breakfast was very good!!!

Room Tip: If you want a sitting area that is aside from the sleeping area, the North Suite is a good choice!

This is a wonderful place tucked away in West Dover, Vermont. My wife and I spent two lovely nights there and it was just great! The Inn Keeper Phil was very knowledgeable about the area and turned us on to a wonderful little day trip while we were there. The breakfasts were incredible and the dinner we had during our stay was also amazing. We went in the fall, around the first week of October and the colors were just spectacular. This is a great place with a friendly and attentive staff who make you feel welcome as soon as you walk int he door.

Room Tip: We actually liked the rooms that had a little porch looking out to the road. Nice to sit and have a...

Once again we made our annual trip to West Dover Inn. This time with a group of 6 other friends. As usual, we had a great time. Friendly, clean,cozy and a fantastic restaurant and bar. Our other friends are already planning more visits and are recommending to thier friends also. We went in mid November and still had lots to do.
Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Go for a suite....fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs, living room, etc.

Love this place. I stayed here a couple months ago with some friends who had got some sort of Groupon or Living Social deal for the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge (fun and very challenging treasure hunt in Dover) - because the reservations were already set, I didn't do my usual obsessive pre-travel research on the place, but was pleasantly surprised at the accomodations. We stayed in a family-type suite which was very comfortable and made us feel at home right away. Dinner and breakfast in the dining room were delicious, and the bar had some nice local VT beers on tap. The staff were all very nice and welcoming too. They said the place is packed during ski season, so I was glad to catch it on a quieter weekend in the fall (though we did meet quite a few fellow treasure-hunters). Only drawbacks were that they ran out of oysters by the time we made it to the raw bar happy hour, and we didn't find One Eyed Willie. Otherwise, a successful trip and a whole-hearted recommendation for the Inn.

My husband and I stayed at the West Dover Inn with another couple while taking part in the Adventure Challenge centered in Dover, VT. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable, and while we did not spend much time in the room, it possessed a genuine Victorian B&B charm. After a day out on the trails, dinner at the West Dover Inn's restaurant was just what we needed! We sampled something from every course and we enjoyed each of the courses, although the desserts were certainly my favorite! The entertainment during dinner also enhanced the atmosphere with music that was played at the perfect volume where you could enjoy the company you were with while also enjoying the songs being played. The owners are incredibly hospitable and worked diligently to ensure all of our needs were met. I would definitely recommend staying at the West Dover Inn if you are looking to enjoy a weekend up in the Dover area!

Everyone was nice, Phil the innkeeper, was entertaining and the food was great.There was a talented local musician playing in the bar to add to the fun. We will visit them again, maybe at a different time of year to capitalize on the beautiful area.

My husband and I recently visited the West Dover Inn on October 9-16, 2013. We have stayed there before and will continue to do so when we travel to Vermont because we really love the Inn and all the people associated with it.

We always stay in the Mount Snow Suite because it is convenient to the parking lot with a quick walk and some stairs to our room. We enjoy this suite with its warm and cozy fireplace and views to the wooded back of the property as well as the weather status for Route 100. The bathroom is roomy with Jacuzzi tab and the bedroom is comfortable, with a queen size bed. Although the room is situated over the bar, we have never had problems with noise interfering with our sleep. And everything is kept very clean.

The bar is welcoming with cozy atmosphere, friendly clientele, good drinks and live music Thursday through Sunday. While they have a bar menu if you choose to eat dinner in the bar, my husband and I enjoy eating in the dining room where there is a wood burning fireplace. Both bar and dining room menus have a wide variety of very delicious food and the Chef does a fantastic job on all the meals. My husband and I have no favorites because the meals are all so good. Phil, the owner cooks a delicious breakfast and again, there is a variety from which to choose. All the staff members are very warm and friendly and we enjoy chatting with them while we are there.

Phil, Kathy and Lauren, the owners really make an effort to ensure that you enjoy your stay. They are very easy going and have lots of great ideas for how you can enjoy your stay in the area, whether it be sports, sightseeing or just a day trip in the car. For those who enjoy skiing, Mt Snow is just a mile north of the Inn and there are nearby places to snowmobile, snowshoe, hike and kayak. Bennington and Brattleboro, which offer places to eat and shop, are about a half hour away. Whenever we visit, it honestly feels like coming home, to a most relaxing and comfortable place, so Phil always makes a point to say “Welcome Home” when we visit.

I highly recommend this Inn. The lodging, food, drink and activities are all excellent and the people at the Inn make it even more inviting. We always enjoy our stay at the West Dover Inn and intend on visiting again in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: The Mount Snow Suite is closest to the parking lot and you can see the weather conditions on Route 1...
