Perfect getaway

5 on July 19, 2016

This is truly a place to get away unwind and relax. There are no televisions in the rooms. Quiet location, with owners and staff that genuinely care about their guests and are obviously happy to be of service. We were immediately welcomed as a part of the family. Everything was lovely and the food excellent. It is obvious that Brian and Leslie absolutely love what they do. I would highly recommend.

We will return!

The Rabbit Hill Family made us feel like one of their own. From the moment we walked in we were treated with professionalism, comfort, warmth, and let's not forget the amazing food offerings . We noticed that many of the other guests were repeat visitors, and we were all welcomed with open arms by guests and staff alike. We will definitely be back to visit again.

This was our 3rd visit to Rabbit Hill Inn and a surprise for my 60th birthday. My husband booked the Jonathan Cummings suite and we were treated like royalty. The innkeepers arranged massages for each of us in the privacy of our room. Judi gave us both a fantastic massage, the best I have ever experienced. We highly recommend this magical place and all the amenities it has to offer. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect getaway!

We had such a wonderfully relaxing stay at The Rabbit Hill Inn. It is a step back in time to a place of peace and serenity. Outstanding service is the norm. Definitely reserve dinners at the Inn as the chef here is a master!

Lovely Remote Resort

Lovely stay in this private inn nestled far off from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Great chance to reconnect, sit back and just relax. The innkeepers and their staff made sure that every I was dotted and every t was crossed. From suggestions of how to occupy our days, to bountiful meals, this inn is a perfect get-away from busy life and spend time connecting with nature and the ones you love.

Lovely place to relax!

The inn is beautifully decorated. Staff are warm and welcoming and accommodating. The afternoon tea is a different tea each dat along with assorted pastry. Brian is a terrific bar keeper and makes wonderfully different cocktails. The dining room is in shades of brown. Breakfasts are outstanding and delicious. Dinner presentation is spectacular, but I felt the choices were too exotic for my tastes. The menu does change seasonally. This is a great place for quiet and relaxation!,

Signature Dish

Always something new
In an effort to stay fresh and new, our chef team tends to shy away from signature dishes. Instead, they really enjoy utilizing the products that our area growers provide in unique ways. Dining should be more than just eating. At Rabbit Hill Inn, taste the best of what is in season!
