Outstanding B&B. Beautiful Rooms & Outstanding Staff!

5 on February 03, 2016

I've paid a lot more for a lot less! This is a well maintained B&B with very comfortable rooms and an attentive staff. I was very comfortable in the large sitting area in front of the fireplace. Retired to a large and very comfortable bed after soaking in the hot tub in the room. I will definitely go back to this B&B. Highly recommended!

Beautiful place and location. A little desolate, and not many dining options nearby, but I was there pretty much off season and they weren't opening the kitchen just for me. Very clean and quaint. The lake views are great, as was the staff.


Amazing Views.........

My wife and I spent a few days in the The Pisgah cottage and it was Amazing, We went thru a snow storm and there was No one else there not even the Inn keeper, They left us the key outside the door, Room was awesome and very neat, very nice on the lake. Great snow covered mountains views also. Kept our gas fireplace at 85 degrees inside so we didn't have to wear any clothes.... Perfect romantic getaway. We brought our own food and cooked in the full kitchen ( they provided everything dishes, microwave, grill outside) . The Best part that caught our eye was the Jacuzzi hot tub in OUR bedroom... BOOM, we switched the furniture around so the T.V. was right in front and we watched movies from the tub. We Deaf want to go back in summer to with all 47 children we have.


A Magical Place In Vermont

5 on January 12, 2016

My family and I have been fortunate to have stayed at the Willoughvale Inn on several occasions, and at every stay, the inn has exceeded our expectations. The staff has met our every request for such things as providing us with an outdoor gas grill ( off season and during a snow storm) when they were all put away for the winter, an aluminum skiff when it was put away in the fall, as well as early check in, and more. The facility is well taken care of, and we have found every cabin we have stayed in to be exceptionally clean and well maintained, and completely furnished with all the kitchen utensils, games, robes, household supplies and just about anything else you may need during your stay. The location is incredible, with panoramic views of Lake Willoughby, and is equally inviting over all four seasons, with the fall and winter seasons being our favorites. On every occasion our family has become closer, with all of us enjoying the opportunity to simply relax and enjoy being together. My family and I will continue to visit the Willoughvale Inn to enjoy all that the Inn and Lake Willoughby have to offer. Thank you for all you have given us ! Ron Martinelli

Highly recommended. An amazing location and a beautiful building. The food was excellent. Not a 5 star fancy place- much nicer and more down to earth.

An Exceptional Place

The Willoughvale Inn has never dissapointed. From the polite and friendly staff to a Innkeeper who is exceptional in accommodating your needs. The view is magical and having stayed in several of their different settings I can say they are all beautiful in their own special ways. For a romantic getaway or simply to relax it is the perfect spot. I highly reccomend this incredibly spectacular place.


Peace and Quiet!

We traveled to the WilloughVale Inn and Cottages in the off-season on purpose for some R & R. We stayed in the Robert Frost lakeside cottage and were thrilled with it! It was cool and blustery while we were there, and the waves rolling into the shore right in front of us were very soothing! We took a couple of hikes (Mount Hor, South Shore Hiking Trail at the end of Lake Willoughby and Wheeler Pond), and my husband cooked for us in the fully-equipped kitchen. The vibe of the cottages is rustic, and that is exactly what we wanted. Gas fireplace, full-view glass windows along the front, and nobody around!

The Inn was very nice. Location to the lake a nice view. Great if you are there during the summer. I was up for family and searching for property in the area. I'd recommend this to couples who would enjoy a romantic get a way.. as it were I was romancing myself.


Where's the beef?

I enjoyed my week stay at the Willough Vale Inn however, having no dining facilities made it cumbersome., Other than the lack of dining facilities, my stay there was perfect.,
