Northeast Kingdom, Vermont, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Charmingly "Vermont-esque" without being kitschy
  • Quiet, relaxed, and remote atmosphere
  • Personalized, friendly service
  • Free breakfast, plus afternoon tea and pastries
  • Gourmet 3-course dinners available
  • Spacious, uniquely furnished rooms, some with soaking tubs and fireplaces
  • Near White Mountain ski areas
  • In-room massages available
  • No children under 14 allowed (a con for some)

Cons

  • No TVs in rooms (a pro for some)
  • Limited cell phone service (a pro for some)

Bottom Line

The 19-room Rabbit Hill Inn combines the peaceful atmosphere of Northern Vermont with an elegant B&B experience. The clean, spacious rooms are more "L.L. Bean cozy" than "Manhattan chic," and each is individually decorated. Outstanding features in some of the rooms include wood-burning fireplaces and soaking tubs for two. All essential B&B elements -- antiques, comfy beds, a cat (named Reese) -- are accounted for, as well as some less common B&B perks (free Wi-Fi, and an on-site tavern with a skilled barman). This Vermont inn offers a lovely restaurant with free breakfast, personalized service, and an escape from technology -- rooms are TV-free and cell phones have limited service.
