Visit Website


A comfortable 1840 farmhouse situated in a beautiful setting of woods and rolling meadows. In the heart of rural Washington County, we have hiking trails and a secluded pond - our spot is ideal for nature lovers, photographers, cyclists, hikers ...anyone who enjoys the beauty and charm of the country. We are between the Green Mts. of Vermont and the Adirondacks. Snowshoeing and skiing are all close by, unless a good book in front of the fireplace is more to your liking in the winter months. Our goal is for you to have the most enjoyable and relaxing stay possible. We want you to visit often!

Charming & Relaxing

4.6 on February 10, 2015

This was my second stay at the Bunker Hill Inn and I'm glad I returned. Laura is wonderful and made us feel like family. The Inn is comfortable and well suited for a weekend getaway. It's located in a beautiful farming area of NY so it feels like an escape, but one can still visit Saratoga Springs conveniently. Highly recommend!

I stayed at the Bunker Hill Inn for two nights in September with all my siblings; we were in the area for a family wedding. The Inn was comfortable and inviting; we felt like we were at home with the perfect hostess. Laura serves a splendid hot breakfast! She also helped us with suggestions and directions, and, when we invited her, told lots of good stories about the area. I would highly recommend this inn for anyone staying in the area.

Wonderful Find

My son and I stayed 2 nights at Bunker Hill for the first time while visiting family. Couldn't have been more pleased from the comfortable room with 2 twin beds, delicious breakfasts, gracious hostess, 2 sweet doggies, and a more than reasonable price. Will definitely stay at Bunker Hill again.

My sister & I were coming for a weekend workshop & couldn't find any place to stay since it was "leaf season". We stumbled here by happenstance & couldn't have been happier w/ our stay. Laura was an excellent hostess, great dinner recommendations, and a lovely breakfast. Very clean, and peaceful surroundings. I went for a lovely walk in the morning on the tranquil, country road in front of the inn.
