Outstanding Service

4.4 on February 03, 2017

I was blown away at the amazing service that we received. Robin the inn keeper was awesome. She knew everyone on a first name basis, made sure we knew about the best food and drinks in town and she made some awesome recommendations. Breakfast provided at the inn was delicious. Overall, a wonderful experience, I will definitely go back.


Home away from home.

My fiancée and I just adore this cozy inn. We don't usually like to travel to the same place more than once, but we will always make an exception to come back here. The staff make us feel so at home here, that it feels wrong to call them "staff." from the moment you walk in, you are welcomed with open arms, and they will do everything they can to make sure you have a wonderful vacation.


Fabulous Stay

Two night stay in Vermont

3.8 on October 23, 2016

We recently spent two nights at the Wilmington Inn. I was a little disappointed when I saw our room. It did not represent what I expected from pictures and description on website. However, it was spotless. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was very small with no comfortable seating for relaxing in room. I am certainly not a fan of the bathroom soaps in wall dispensers! The breakfast was good. Robin was very helpful and went above and beyond to see that we had everything we needed. The innkeeper was also pleasant and a great chef! Overall we really enjoyed our time here and the quaint little town of Wilmington.


Excellent on all accounts

5 on October 20, 2016

From the moment we walked in the door, until we left, we were treated with the warmest hospitality. The Inn is clean and interesting with books, games, comfortable furniture and a pool table. There is also a bar and if the staff is not available it is on the honor system! Our room was perfect; beautiful view, large comfortable bed, whirlpool bath, lounge chair and flat screen TV. The location could not have been better. You walk down the driveway and you are walking in the quaint town of Wilmington with country stores, gift shops, art gallery and fabulous restaurants. Breakfast at the Inn was delicious it was hot, tasty and more than enough. I use the word comfortable often because that is exactly how they made you feel. There is the owner and two staff. Robin is by far the heart of the Inn. She can tell you anything you want to know about the area and she takes personal interest in each and every person that walks in. A hidden GEM. A perfect place, with perfect people for any time of year. thank you for a wonderful time


Love This Place

5 on October 10, 2016

I stayed at the Wilmington Inn and Tavern on a trip down Scenic Highway 100. Nothing but good things to say. Location is perfect -- easy walk to restaurants and shops in downtown Wilmington. The Inn is beautiful to look at, inside and out. Staff are very helpful and friendly; hospitality was outstanding. The rooms are perfect -- everything up to date. What I might remember most -- maybe the most comfy bed I've ever slept in. The next time I make this road trip, this Inn will definitely be a part of my itinerary. Many thanks for a 5-star experience!


Nice, but work needed

3.0 on October 03, 2016

Me & my husband stayed here 9-26-16 for 1 night. Robin who greeted us upon arrival was very pleasant, showed us around thoroughly. The first floor interior was quaint and nicely done. All rooms in the main house are on the second floor. The staircase leading up was steep and narrow. Getting our suitcases up was a workout. It would be nice if they could install a dumb waiter for suitcases. I guess if your young and strong no problem. We are in our mid 60's so I can't imagine someone even older carrying suitcases up. I will admit I tend to over pack, so maybe for others this will not be a big problem. Our room was OK (Chimney Hill), on the small side but bed very comfortable. Room was clean but bathroom needed updating. The owner of the Inn Rachel cooked us the best breakfast the following morning. I had apple pancakes and they were the best I ever tasted. So I will give the breakfast 5 stars. One other nice thing is you can come down to the bar at night; get what you want and just write it down on paper left there. The location was fantastic - could easily walk to all stores and restaurants. Although I wrote about a couple negatives, overall the place was nice and I would recommend it.


Great experience. Would recommend highly.

My wife and I were impressed with the greeting we received upon arrival. The waitress and service at breakfast were outstanding. The impression we got was the people working there were truly interested in your comfort.


A lovely stay!

We had a delightful stay at the Wilmington Inn. Our room (Jennie's Room) was quiet and comfortable. The bed was excellent and we both slept very well. The breakfast frittatas were delicious and stuck with us all day. We would definitely visit again!

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. As a "Bed & Breakfast", we think those are the two most important things -- a good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast in the morning. We're so glad you enjoyed both!

Signature Dish

Cast iron skillet frittata
We par cook three farm fresh eggs with grilled seasonal vegetables and transfer them once they start to firm to a hot buttery cast iron skillet mixing in a touch of heavy cream and place the skillet into an oven. The cream lightens the eggs and makes them fluff up. Once the middle is fully cooked we sprinkle cheese over top liberally and we finish the skillet in a broiler briefly to melt the cheese and lightly brown the top. As with all of our dishes this is served with your choice of crispy bacon or sausage patties and a choice of toast.
