We love the West Mountain inn

5 on March 12, 2015

We have stayed at the West Mountain Inn 4 times & love it as a peaceful getaway. My son had his wedding there last Fall,. Everyone says it was the best wedding ever. The staff there is just amazing - really nice & will do anything for you. We go there also for the food. Everything is first rate & delicious. The breakfast is included with your room & is one of the best, heartiest breakfasts we have found anywhere. Since discovering the WMI, we have tried to go once or twice a year.

Another spectacular stay at WMI.

We've been staying at WMI for almost 15 years and it is always a great time. Relaxing, comfortable, reasonably priced. And they have Harpoon and Magic Hat on tap! Doesn't get any better.

Beautiful setting!

The place is beautifully kept and managed! We only stayed here one night so there is not much more we can say about it. Except that one must be reminded that places such as this do not have elevators, so pack light. You will have to drag your suitcase upstairs to the bedroom area! If you are not staying long, an overnight bag is a good idea.

a lovely relaxed fall weekend

From the time we turned the corner at the top of the hill and the inn came into view until we said goodbye, the inn was a welcoming home base for our Vermont excursions. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful as well as friendly and the food was very tasty, both at breakfast and at the dinner we had upon arrival. Cozy but roomy, and situated in a very picturesque area of Vermont, would definitely consider a return visit to experience it at another season of the year.

October stay very enjoyable

A great property, very hospitable staff and owner, and top notch dining. The breakfasts were plentiful, quite varied, and accompanied by hot breakfast breads, a real treat. And no need to go anywhere else for your evening meal. These were great too. Walking trails should be explored while staying there; we did. Only the lack of cell phone service hampered us.

Such a Beautiful Place

We stayed here for the second leg of our first trip to Vermont. When we drove up the driveway to W.M.I my wife and I were beside ourselves with the beauty of the very well kept grounds. When we arrived at the front desk we were greeted by Linda who made us feel very welcome and was very helpful with all of our questions. She then gave us a tour of Wes' Apartment where we would be staying for three nights. It was very nice and had all of the amenities we could want. Although, The bedroom carpets could use a good shampooing. The first night there we decided to eat dinner in the restaurant at the Inn. I had what I can honestly say was the best lamb shank I have ever tasted. The service in the restaurant was also very good that night. We only ate dinner there once because we wanted to try some of the other local restaurants. Breakfasts were always very good quality as well. If ever We decide to stay in the Arlington area again, We will most likely book at least part of our stay at W.M.I.

Wonderful stay!

Booked our stay through, love that service. Beautiful inn, beautiful grounds. Our room was the Daniel Webster Suite. Spacious and immaculate, loved the canopy bed! My husband and I took advantage of their 5 course dinner. Again wonderful and even luxurious. We made friends with a couple from the Netherlands during. The staff was attentive and engaging, no complaints! My husband and I were on a car trip touring New England and am writing reviews of our 3 favorite inns. The Arlington West Inn was a favorite!

Love It!

We've been coming to the Inn for many years with large groups, just another couple and by ourselves. We always have the best time. Quiet, comfortable and the staff are all wonderful! Food is always delicious too! Looking for a place relax and unwind? West Mountain Inn is it!

This was a return to the area where I lived 20 years ago. I was friends with the owners of the West Mtn Inn and knew of their high standards. I was not disappointed. The Inn was as charming as ever, fantastic staff, wonderful food. We are already planning a trip back.

Love this Inn

4.4 on February 26, 2013

My husband and I have been coming to WMI for over last 20 years. Every season and every visit is unique and refreshing. The views are magnificent, the food delicious, the rooms well-appointed and charming and the staff friendly and accommodating. There is something for everyone. From sitting in front of the fire on a cold winter day to local skiing, hiking the trails, fishing in the Battenkill, cycling and walking the back roads and trails. I could just go on and on---------------.
