Perfect Stay!

We had a lovely weekend at the Hill Farm. This is our favorite place to stay in the area, so peaceful and relaxing. The staff does a remarkable job welcoming guests and taking care of all your needs. The views from the back porch are delightful. Our stay was just perfect!


Stay at Hill Farm Inn

A wonderful setting, lovely combination of privacy and friendliness. The staff is so helpful and accommodating to any and all needs. The food - fantastic. And they generously allowed our nearby family's children to join us swimming in their warm, salt water (no chlorine) pool. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Great R & R, with many local outdoor and other attractions.


Highly recommend.

Love this place!!

What a wonderful setting in the hills of Vermont! It's beautiful and peaceful. Our only minor complaint is that the breakfast options of eggs almost every day with no real second choice got old after awhile. But don't let that stop you. The staff is wonderful and they really care about your experience. The room was lovely.


Awesome family weekend!

Thank you to Kate, Maria and gentleman at the bar! We felt so welcome as soon as we arrived, you all seemed to be able to read our minds! You were so sweet to our 3 grandchildren, who enjoyed the barn sheep and Milo, the grounds, playing in the snow! The breakfast options were so delicious. Our rooms in the Farmhouse were perfect, comfy, and spotless. We so enjoyed going to town, seeing and tasting the yummy maple syrup being processed, this year it takes 56 gallons of sap to make a1 gallon of syrup, worth every penny!!!! Northshire bookstore, Hildene snowshoeing, visiting the goat barn, and touring the Lincoln family home.


Great stay at Hill Farm Inn!

We had a very enjoyable pre-Christmas stay at the Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland. Our room was great and everyone at the Inn was very friendly and hospitable. The breakfasts were delicious and generous! The fire was always blazing and the bar was always open! Christmas trees inside and out, as well as other decorations, made our stay festive. Having it snow five inches on our last night made everything magic. Looking forward to returning in the summer or fall! Very close to Manchester, Dorset and other great towns to explore. We would highly recommend the Hill Farm Inn!

Really beautiful . Super friendly. Very clean. Breakfast was delicious. Our only Complaint would be that is no counter space in the bathroom and no place to hang a washcloth in the shower.


Country Life at It’s Best

We recently made a trip East and stayed at 4 different bed and breakfasts, all highly rated. This was our favorite. Beautiful views, outstanding accommodations, friendly and competent customer service. I grew up on a small midwestern farm, and it felt like going home. Loved every minute and hope to go back for a longer stay!

The pictures do not do the farm justice. It is a beautiful site with the best facilities, friendly staff and idyllic surroundings. If we lived closer we would be back every weekend ! Thanks again!
