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!

Just returned to the Midwest after spending 5 days at the Bunker Hill Inn. Due to the time of the year, Laura had a number of rooms available. Because of my extended stay, I chose the least expensive room (downstairs) which had a shared bath upstairs. Not a problem since the other guests were in rooms with en suite bathrooms. The bed was very comfortable. The Inn is a well preserved 1840 farmhouse and farm which Laura's family has occupied since the 1950's. The village of Salem is about a 15 minute drive. Several days were spent exploring Washington County, NY, Manchester, Vt. and Lake George, all within an easy drive. The breakfasts differed every day and were uniformly excellent. Try the maple cream on your toast. Take some with you-Laura sells it. Recommendations of Laura to which I can attest: The nearby Battenkill Creamery, a working dairy farm has great ice cream and the best chocolate milk ever. The same for the cheesecake made by the nuns at Skete in nearby Greenwich (also the home of the 111 Main Restaurant-an excellent choice for dinner). Laura was also able to assist me in finding excellent guides for two days of fishing on the legendary Batten Kill River. This is a first rate B&B.

We pulled into the driveway, and a fawn and doe were standing in the front yard. Snow was on the ground, so the view was picturesque. The Inn is lovely, cozy, neat and tidy, and off the beaten path. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are spacious and current Laura serves a delicious breakfast with fresh eggs from her coop, homemade maple cream, and lots of birds to watch while you eat. We hated to leave this relaxing Inn, and will definitely return.

Clean rooms, hot shower water, excellent food, and beautiful surroundings make the Bunker Hill Inn everything a B&B should be. Laura, the innkeeper, is a delightful blend of affable, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about the surroundings and history of the area. She serves wholesome farm food, and has an amazing touch with a waffle. My husband & I spent quite some time one night watching over a dozen deer eat and frolic in the neighboring field. With perfect coffee left at our door at our requested time, breakfast also at our requested time, and views my camera can't get enough of, what more can a traveler ask for?!!

Laura is a wonderful host in the most peaceful setting. Breakfast was fantastic especially with fresh picked blueberries.

Wood flooring throughout, beautiful paint job. We stayed in room number two, elegantly but not fussily done in burgundy and rose. Breakfast on the first morning was fruit and yoghurt and then bacon, eggs and toasted artisanal bread. The next morning it was hot fruit, followed by blueberry pancakes and sausage. On our final day, we had fruit and yoghurt, again, followed by quiche. and toast on the same bread Always we had a choice of juices and hot beverage. All of it was beautifully presented on rustic pottery. Much of the food is local or from the farm itself, especially the eggs, the blueberries and the bread. I grew up in this area; we stayed here visiting family and a high-school reunion. This is a classic farm location in Washington County, New York, surrounded by woods and fields. Without really looking we saw wild turkeys and deer - and a hawk. Everything is organized to anticipate your needs; the owner doesn't need to hover, but is available if needed.

Old house with lots of character and charm nestled in the outskirts of the Adirondacks. Laura was a very welcoming and warm natured hostess. Annie and Frank were adorable house mates (the inn keepers pups) as well as the half dozen chickens parading around the gardens. Breakfast was served at a time we specified (nice touch) and was the most delicious start to our day. The porch was a beautiful way to enjoy a peaceful moment and a cup of tea.

Bunker Hill Inn is the ideal B&B experience--picturesque old house, bucolic setting, comfortable beds, good food, front porch with comfortable chairs, and a generally homey atmosphere overseen by the charming and attentive innkeeper, Laura Coldwell. I've stayed twice and will come back whenever I visit Salem. On my most recent visit, I did a 40-minute morning walk and never left the inn's property. It took me to a hilltop that gave a view out over mist-filled valleys.

My wife and I stayed at Bunker Hill last night. What a great experience! Laura is a wonderful host, and cooks a great breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable, and the country setting was really beautiful. We will definitely be returning!
