We wouldn’t consider staying anyplace else. Lovely inn on the hill. Cozy and comfortable makes you feel at home, actually better than home! Friendly inviting innkeepers can’t do enough for you! Great food and snacks! Baking is out of site!

Winter Wonderland!

Loved the Deerhill Inn! We purchased the Wine, Dine, and Ski package and it worked out perfectly. Dinner was romantic and delicious. Breakfast was terrific, included a home baked scone of the day, and a great variety of options. Ariane and Scott were great hosts. Charming, cozy, and peaceful. A truly relaxing getaway. Snow was the cherry on top.

Winter weekend getaway!

4.0 on February 22, 2018

This as our 1st time at the Deerhill Inn and it exceeded all my expectations. The room was clean, quiet, roomy and we just loved staying there. The food was tremendous as were the staff. We will definitely be back! They were gracious enough to let us have a very late check out since we had a snowmobiling tour the morning we were to leave, it was very helpful!


Cozy B&B with outstanding service

5 on February 15, 2018

The Deerhill Inn was cozy, very clean and the service was outstanding. Scott greeted us promptly upon entering and provided us with a tour of the property on the way to our room. We stayed in the Evergreen room which was very clean & cozy. Every amenity that you needed for an overnight stay was provided. The afternoon tea service was wonderful. The Inn was quiet and had a few rooms that you could use to relax. The breakfast was perfect. A nice selection of items to choose from, portions were filling. The fresh baked scones were served warm and were the best I’ve ever eaten! The tables were all nicely set with fresh made jam, butter and condiments. We had a lovely view of Haystack & Mt Snow from our room and then again at the breakfast table. I would highly recommend this Inn for an enjoyable night away from home.

About the innkeepers

It took a number of years before we decided on Innkeeping as our next adventure, and settled on Deerhill Inn as our destination. But from the first we loved its quiet serenity, its gorgeous views and lovely grounds, and the sense of history and continuity that is one of Vermont's particular gifts. Beyond that, though, there seems to us to be something unique and valuable about the Inn, the Valley and the Mountains which we want to preserve and share.
