Hidden gem

4.8 on January 12, 2017

We picked the Willoughvale Inn primarily as a stopping point to Quebec but quickly realized what a great find it was and made point to stop again on our return.


beautiful lake

3.2 on January 01, 2017

Because of a flat tire we got there later than we hoped, just in time for a beautiful sunset on the lake in winter time but not much time to walk around, although what we saw was beautiful. Accomodations are pretty standard, you'll be comfortable.


Sweet place!

We did not get to enjoy dinner there on this trip, but during our previous trips when we did get to enjoy the evening meals they were always delicious.


Loved the view of the lake, amazing cabin!!!

Relaxing, wonderful colors, lovely lake, nice weekend!


Great plus but the bed was unacceptable

4.6 on November 13, 2016

This is a beautiful property, the staff was wonderful, our room was very nice and we would love to go back. The only issue was our rock hard bed. My goal is to get a good night's sleep on the road and this unfortunately didn't happen on this trip.


Mid Week Foliage Visit

4.8 on October 25, 2016

We enjoyed a two night stay in the Osprey Room at the Willougvale Inn in mid-October. The view from our lovely room was a panorama of the lake and Mt. Hor. Priceless! Comfortable beds, sparkling clean room & bathroom, nice amenities. Lovely library with fireplace, coffee and tea service. Continental breakfast - excellent home made morning glory muffins! We also had dinner in their restaurant one evening. Good food and outstanding service. The Inn's staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We will definitely be coming back again.


I didn't want to leave!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Willoughvale. It was our first trip to Vermont and Willoughvale helped make it a perfect and memorable experience. We stayed in the Robert Frost lakefront cottage. The cottage was perfect....the lakefront views were breathtaking. The food at the Inn was above and beyond our expectations. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly the Inn is dog friendly which was a must for us.


A Beautiful Place for a Getaway

A beautiful location and great hospitality. Both cabins and Inn are top notch places to stay.


Wonderful! Can not wait to return!

This inn was absolutely a pleasure to stay at. I am so glad that our friends invited us to their son's wedding so we were able to experience a weekend at the Willoughvale Inn. Would highly recommend it for a family, romantic getaway, adventure weekend or whatever the occasion. Staff was so nice and the food was exceptional in the Inn's dining room. Can not wait to return.
