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!

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.

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.

Will be back again.

When we venture to southern VT from CT, this is the place we love to go! Not only is the staff here very friendly, but they are very accomodating too. They make you feel like family and that is important! The food/bar experience is excellent and when you wake up from a glorious nights rest, their homemade breakfast awaits you. Writting this review puts a smile on my face because it is just that good!! No matter the season, the West Dover Inn has plenty to do around the area. I have another reservation to re-visit soon, and I cannot wait to plan for the following trip after that! This Bed and Breakfast is too good to not try!

My husband and I celebrated our 45th Anniversary with a trip through New England including a delightful two-night stay at the West Dover Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in this beautiful and historic inn. It was our second visit to West Dover and what really made this one a standout was our host Phil Gilpin who greets guests warmly, feeds them well, and even advises tourists about "adventures" in his adopted area. He provided us with a map and a narrative of directions for a day trip that included the Gallery of Humor, the Grafton Handmade Cheese Factory, a new Saxton Distillery, the homes of Thomas Lincoln and Robert Frost, the Vermont Store, the Christmas Shop, and lots of other cool venues we would have missed or been too timid to attempt without his guidance. Our breakfasts, cooked by our host, were excellent and filling and our dinner was as well served up by the gregarious bartender George. The chef sent out some amazing chowder to try in a delicate soup cup as well as an amazing mussel breaded and topped with pineapple salsa. Unusual and delicious treats! We certainly hope we can find the way back to the West Dover Inn sooner than later.

we had a wonderful weekend at the West Dover Inn. The innkeepr could not have been nicer and more helpful. After hearing wha t we liked to do, he gave us suggestions to help plan our weekend. He printed out directions to local things and told alittle about each place. Our room was very quaint and well kept- a perfect Vermont Inn! The breakfasts were hearty and delicious-French toast, b,ueberry pancakes and omelettes. plus the packed picnic lunch was a plus! It is a great place for a New England getaway.

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we loved it. The West Dover Inn is located in a beautiful area. We enjoyed visiting surrounding towns and walking in the area. The suite we stayed was beautifully decorated and furnished. We enjoyed the bar ambiance and music on Thursday. There was a nice crowd and we had fun. The hearty breakfast was an excellent to begin the day. We would like to come back.

date of visit 7/1 - 7/4/2012 We arrived on a Sunday late afternoon, and Phil the Innkeeper was warm and accomodating; even later bringing us a lovely cheese platter. I was a tad disappointed with the upkeep of the Inn, needs some freshening and repairs. the dining room and bar are outdated and need some help. the food was excellent and we told the chef. We did have to ask for our 3rd breakfast coupon, as we stayed 3 nights, we were only given 2. Shouldn't a Bed & Breakfast most definitely come with breakfast each morning? We tried to sit outside for dinner, but had to move indoors because of the bugs biting us! they were all over us! I saw that the patio was new, but does not look it. Could be much nicer. And the Inn is right near the road, very disappointing, because that is not shown in the pictures online. the price is pretty high for an old place with no views whatsoever. Staff is friendly and efficient and can't beat the food!

We have never been to an Inn and we weren't sure what to expect. We arrived early and our room was ready so we were able to check in right away. The owners son gave us a tour of the Inn as well as the history behind it. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. After we checked in we went to the Adams Farm for a sleigh ride. It was awesome. Then we headed back to the Inn to freshen up and go to the bar for some drinks and appetizers and watch the game (Saints vs. 49ers) and then the (Pats vs. Broncos). The bartender was very friendly. The magician was awesome. Still trying to figure out how he gets the cards on the ceiling. There was a singer there as well. Very good. The food at the bar was awesome. And the best part was we didn't have to go out in the cold. The tavern had entertainment, the football game, food and drinks, friendly atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Met the owner the next morning. He was very nice. Even though they had closed for breakfast they opened the kitchen to accommodate us and made us breakfast. I can't say enough about this place. I would highly recommend it. We will definately making this our "go to" place in Vermont. Thanks for a great and memorable weekend!

Grounds were not as well kept as they appear in the picture. We were upgraded to a suite as we were the only guests that night, it was cold and the suite had a fireplace. It was a nice gesture but we thought the single rooms were much brighter and prettier. Our room was clean and the bed was cosy. Our host was very accommodating and friendly and provided us with a detailed route enabling us to explore the SW Vermont area with ease. Food was just ok but service was good. We found the inn overpriced for what we received and will try a B and B on our next visit.

We came a little off season, but were kept cozy with all the fires around the B and B. We requested the duck tenders and squash ravioli appetizers in the living room along with our local wine which the Innkeeper had no trouble with our having in the living room. The food was so good that we decided to stay for dinner at The Tavern. We enjoyed the free entertainment and knowing that we were a part of the local community having a good time. Our room was neat and comfortable and we ventured off the next day in the rain to a wonderful place called The Garden Cafe in Londonderry, also not to be missed. Thank you West Dover Inn Hosts and Staff!

After spending the day skiing at Mt. Snow, we drove the two miles to the West Dover Inn. Although we had not stayed at this inn before, we found the history of the Inn to be of interest so we decided to try it. We throughly enjoyed our stay. The owner (and his son) were excellent hosts. The atmosphere was relaxed and provided an excellent example of New England hospitality. After spending time in the bar we decided to try the restaurant for dinner. The meal was excellent as we enjoyed our food at a table by the fireplace. If you like New England charm in a location that has character then you should give the West Dover Inn a try. Our only disappointment was we did not see the ghost that is supposed to have been seen in the Inn.

Our stay at the West Dover Inn was great! We were looking for a few days away from daily routine and visiting VT was the right choice. Phil greeted us upon arrival and showed us our room. We also arrived a few hours early and he was very accommodating on letting us check in early. We stayed in the Mount Snow suite. The room was great and very comfortable. It was also very convenient that the room was just upstairs from the bar/restaurant area. We went to the bar for dinner and live music. The food and service were excellent! We had good laughs with the locals and our bartender Greg. Overall our stay was a great getaway before heading back home.

The West Dover Inn is everything you'd expect an Inn in Vermont to be, cozy, charming - the service warm and friendly. We had room 4 with a fireplace, which was a lovely perk. It was spacious and comfortable. Only issue we had was that the shower knobs are extremely temperamental and can run extremely hot or cold depending on a fraction of an inch! Other than this, we were very happy and would recommend it to anyone. They even have a cozy living room at the Inn with board games and comfy sofas to lounge inn.

A brief stay as part of a longer trip, our time at the inn was peaceful and relaxing. The innkeeper was cordial, entertaining, and highly skilled. The menu is uncomplicated, but every item was carefully prepared with fresh ingredients, many of them local. The staff was very careful with allergies and sensitivities, and made us feel welcome. We'd go back!

Innkeeper was extremely professional and accommodating. The rooms we're quaint with the only flaw being an advertised digital satellite service on a microscopic TV (but believe me, between the amazing two-person jacuzzi tub and fantastic dining room below.....the boobtube is really a non-issue). I went during a slow b&b season and still was able to find ample things for me and my fiancee to do. I would highly recommend this b&b to those looking for a warm, relaxing place at a reasonable price.

I needed to find a new place to stay, off the beaten path a bit, cozy and warm and different. I stay in the Vermont area quite a bit. I happened to be in town and needed an overnight and the whole area in the vicinity of Wilmington, was booked due to a large wedding. Phil Jr. and the staff took care of us and made the last minute stay, quite enjoyable. Stay here, you won’t regret it!

We came up for a family wedding and saw this Inn on the internet. Was very impressed with both the friendliness and courtesy of all employees we met and talk to and also the innkeeper. The rooms were very nicely furnished and made your feel as though you were in your own home and not at a hotel. The food and service were excellent. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and certainly will not be our last.

The West Dover Inn is beautiful on the outside. Because we had to have a room with two beds we were given a room above the restaurant. The beds were hard. Room was cold. The room smelled like all the food that was cooked below us. We could clearly hear each song being sung by the entertainment in the bar, glasses and dishes clanking and food being removed from dirty plates in the kitchen. However, I believe I ate the best steak I've ever had in their restaurant.

We had a wonderful stay with our young children. The big room was large and the 2 single beds made the kids happy that they did not have to sleep with each other or Mum and Dad. The room was very clean and charming with room to move. The beds were comfortable and warm covers. We had an issue with a noisy pipe in the wall which periodically woke us during the night, but overall our short stay was nice. The restaurant surprised us with the quality of the food, especially the steak.

Stayed two nights. Got a suite which included a gas fireplace and a two person jacuzzi tub. Overall the condition of the room was very good and clean. Did not like the fact that the room was over the tavern as the noise level was loud sometimes. Not too loud but if you are trying to relax and do not like noise it might be bothersome. Noise was gone around 10 p.m. Breakfast was not included in the room rate. If you add the price of breakfast on to your room then the price of the room is equal to other places. The breakfast was good. Overall we thought it was a very nice place to stay and we really did enjoy the amenities of the suite.

When I look for a moderately priced inn, I want to know that it is clean. West Dover Inn met the test. The host is quite accomodating - iron & ironing board brought to the room. Windows open and air conditioning is available if wanted. It has a bed and breakfast feel with a private table in the dining room. The big surprise was the 'fine dining' for dinner. The food was elegant and delicious and beautifully served. We were hosting a small birthday dinner and really appreciated the ambience.
