Wonderful weekend getaway

5 on May 08, 2012

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Hill Farm Inn and had an excellent experience. Lisa was fantastic and her breakfast featured the best blueberry pancakes we had ever eaten! The animals were lovely and the recreation around the Inn was fun. I highly recommend Hill Farm Inn and will be returning soon.

A wonderful place to stay

4.0 on July 25, 2010

We stayed for one week in July 2010 in the Battenkill Suite. It was roomy, well furnished, and lovely. There was always more to discover on the grounds including a great area to view sunsets and the animals were fun. The hosts were helpful about the area, providing good recommendations about food and activities.


A perfect honeymoon getaway!

The perfect distance from Manchester, cozy accommodations, and friendly innkeepers. Tons to do and see for the outdoor enthusiast. The animals and beautiful forest surroundings added to the charm. Loved our stay!


Great B&B!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hill Farm Inn. The room was charming and clean, the blueberry pancakes were delicious and Lisa and Al were lovely and very helpful when we asked for suggestions of what to do and where to go. We also loved the walking trail and the farm animals on the property. The entire experience was truly enjoyable, and we would certainly recommend this B&B to others.


family friendly fun

We visit the inn with my three children, 11,13, and 15. They loved the animals and the breakfast was wonderful. The inn was very family friendly


Needs some work

2.4 on October 20, 2008

We stayed 3 nights and nearly left after two. While the inn is charming and breakfast choices good, the cabin we were in needed renovation. Housekeeping was very poor - our sink with soap scum wasn't cleaned the entire time nor was the floor vacuumed. (We had tracked in leaves. It was autumn...) We'd probably not stay there again with so many choices in the area.

Innkeeper Response
No one likes criticism, but this guest was kind enough to leave us a detailed note that really got our attention. We found the bathroom had been cleaned thoroughly each day, but the worn out enamel on the sink appeared dirty to our guest. The entire bathroom has now been remodeled with a new sink, toilet, flooring, paint and more, and all our cabin bathrooms will be completed by the time they reopen in the spring. We also investigated the complaint about vacuuming and found that a new employee had not been properly trained. This was corrected at once. While every room is inspected by management before a new guest checks in, guests staying over multiple nights sometimes return to their rooms before the daily service has been inspected. While we strive to make every guests' stay perfect, we appreciate having any shortcoming brought to our attention at once so that it can be corrected.


Great food, great view, comfy room

My wife and I stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time - from fly fishing with local guide Marty Oakland to shopping in Manchester to visiting museums & galleries. Beautiful views and friendly animals (be sure to visit Wilbur, the pot bellied pig). Lisa and Al Gray were excellent hosts, making sure we were comfortable. We will definitely go again.
