“Perfection!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Our stay was the perfect snowy retreat, beautiful rooms with log fires, wonderful food and service. Lots of thoughtful touches which made us feel like we were guests in a lovely country home. We enjoyed snow shoeing- all the equipment was provided, the staff made all the transport arrangements for us including taking us to a fantastic sleigh ride. The food was a fantastic standard including creative breakfasts, delicious baked cakes and biscuits with hot apple cider and gourmet dinners. The team looking after us were excellent - always helpful, thoughtful with every request met with kindness and efficiency. The grounds are lovely and we can't wait to return in another season.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

After a beautiful scenic drive to the Inn, we were welcomed by a warm and inviting staff, lead by Katia, the Inn keeper. The inn is located in an isolated spot where all you can hear is the sound of the wind blowing through the trees. Our hostess Katja was extremely personable and friendly. She made our experience special and extremely comfortable. We were immediately given a tour of the grounds ending with the keys to our cozy suite atop an old barn. The room was as cozy as if it were my own house. There was no TV (perfect) however there is an average signal for internet. We ate both nights at the 5 star dining hall, where we were personally welcomed at the front door. The food was exceptional and wine paring was top-notch (Thanks Dan). Upon returning to our room after dinner we were pleasantly surprised to see that it had been cleaned!! WOW. A personal hand-written note laid on the bed from Katia, welcoming us to the Inn. Breakfast the next morning was also exceptional (great views for first thing in the morning!), and when we returned....room was cleaned again. We did not get to hike along the trails, however the little shops in the neighboring towns were well worth the drive.
Would absolutely stay here again.

Your stay is guaranteed to be relaxing and peaceful. 1st stay was over a decade ago this stay was celebrating 26th anniversary. Small professional staff works aggressively and passionately to ensure everything is perfect. Food is 5 Star, tasty and a bit pricey but worth every cent. When you want to get lost in a remote area that is truly "away from it all" look no further than the Windham Hill Inn.

Another stay at the Windham Hill Inn, into the very bosom of serenity and relaxation. I know of no new way to say it. Sure, there was more: The exhilaration of the birch forest lighting up like jackpot alert after we hiked from Inn, to meadow and then into the woods to the falls. The magnificence of beauty in this quintessential Vermont setting. But, in the end, I come back to the sheer quiet outside among the mountains guarding our safe haven. The warmth of the fire while sipping glasses of wine selected for us by Dan. The enveloping comfort of our big bed. The sumptuous breakfast and dinner. The attention to detail and special requests by Katja, our favorite innkeeper. All of these settle me down as few other places have ever done, and certainly none within such easy reach.

Fresh off another visit to the Windham Hill Inn and already looking forward to our next stay!!! October 18 marked another Italian Wine Dinner at the Windham Hill Inn and somehow they just keep getting better!!! Amazing food and wine coupled with the finest accommodations, world class hospitality and some of the most beautiful fall foliage you can imagine!!! Katja and the entire team continue to make the Windham Hill Inn one of the finest places to visit in New England.

Regrettably I could only spend one night here, on my way to Boston. I will return. Here's why...

This establishment is managed by a professional inn keeper and it shows. There is the correct balance between formal guest management and a more intimate, country-style hospitality. My compliments to Katja (the Maneger) for setting high standards and being confident enough to be able to engage with guests so that you felt "at home and welcome" without it seeming to be insincere and formulaic.

The common facilities are comfortable and the Inn's location is very pretty and (thankfully!) quiet.

The dining experience was pleasant, with wholesome ingredients and efficient, willing service. Our bedroom was on the top floor and very well configured and comfortable. We enjoyed views of the pond from the bedroom and of the valley from the bathroom.

Having just stayed in a highly rated inn up north in Vermont, I concluded that Windham Hill Inn is far superior and I would recommend it highly.

My husband and I celebrated our 70th birthday at this charming Vermont country Inn. It is truly a gem combining old world attentive hospitality with fine gourmet dining. The property is lovely with lots of beautiful gardens and paths. They spoil you with discrete attention. We even had a split of champagne awaiting up in our cozy room when we returned from a hike to a lovely nearby waterfall. "Happy Birthday to you both of you, Katja, Inkeeper."
