Nicest place we have ever stayedl

The diningroom was not open during our stay. Everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time and plan on returning.

Stellar accommodations

WilloughVale Inn was a very pleasant surprise. We stayed there as a half way point between Quebec City and Boston. I was confident it would be more than adequate for a comfortable stopover but was not prepared for how impressive it was. Our room had everything we could need and was one of the cleanest I’ve ever stayed in. The high standard of cleanliness was found throughout the inn. The beds were incredibly comfortable resulting in a great night’s sleep. The continental breakfast was basic but delicious and hit the spot. The icing on the cake was the staff who were warm, friendly and helpful. I will not hesitate to stay at WilloughVale in the future and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great Getaway

Willoughvale Inn is a gem in the Northern Kingdom. We are frequent guests and usually stay in the Gazebo room. We were called a few days before our visit and were offered the cabin on the hill (at no extra charge) since there was a problem with the propane fireplace in the Gazebo room. The cabin had a spectacular view and was whistle clean and super cozy and comfortable.

Comfortable Inn feels like home

Rooms are vermonty, comfortable. Nothing extraordinary but we'll done. Peaceful night sleep in a location that is great, right next to beautiful lake willoughby and close to northeast kingdoms best moose watching areas. Hiking nearby, st johnsbury still close enough too. It has been a long time favorite of ours. A small pub in the Inn is nice for a close night cap and there is a contentintal breakfast.

Beautiful place wonderful people

My wife and I stayed at the WilloughVale Inn on March 2-4, 2018. We went there on a whim and had a fabulous time. Skip, the innkeeper, was enormously helpful in suggesting to us places to see and where we can dine. The Inn itself is beautiful inside and out. Skip made us feel at home as did the other workers at the Inn. Cindy was very sociable and shared many stories while we were at the bar. Our room was meticulously clean and we had a great view of Lake Willoughby. While we were there many people were ice fishing on the lake. An ice fishing tournament was the previous weekend. Very interesting. One day we took Skip’s recommendation and went to April’s Maple. It is a local industry producing fresh maple syrup and other products; all done on premises. Serge, the father of the owner, his daughter, gave us a tour of how the syrup is harvesting and then converted into the different products. There is also a café/restaurant attached that serves a variety of basic food at reasonable prices. It also seems to be a gathering place for snowmobilers that were very friendly and shared some stories. One night went to the GAP Pub & Grill. Yes, there are many locals there, but isn’t that what you travel for? The “locals” were friendly, service was great, food was fantastic and the prices very reasonable. Another night we went to Burke Publik House. Good food and service and a variety of beer, and a rustic atmosphere.

Quaint and cozy stay in The Angler, right on the lake!

Slippery start

2.6 on March 12, 2018

After checking in we almost drove through one of the cottages due to icy driveway conditions but narrowly avoided that! The cottage smelled a little funky when we first got there but it aired out over the day. We were also not made aware that the onsite dinning was only partially open....and I wanted more than a salad and soup! Other than that it was fine

The inn the view beautiful lake

Love the Willoughvale

This is our favorite hotel in Vermont! The location on Lake Willoughby is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are cozy and comfortable, and the staff is always helpful and friendly. We always come in winter to ski at either Burke or Jay, so the dinner menu consists of entrees that have been flash frozen by the chef in Stowe. Based on the food quality, you'd never know it! Everything has been delicious!
