“All this effort would be for naught if the property were not attractive, but the inn exudes charm from its clapboard siding to the original wide-plank floors. The 12 rooms are lovely and up to date …”

“As guests relax on the tavern deck with a cognac, their hosts appear with marshmallows and graham crackers for s’mores over the fire pit. Twelve rooms have different features, such as spa showers, towel warmers and antique clawfoot tubs. With fifteen fireplaces and twenty-one acres, the inn makes others green with envy (and is the epitome of green as Vermont’s first hotel with an EV-charging station for electric cars).”

“The Cavendish Farm quail roti with chickpea and lovage stuffing from chef Jason Tostrup is reason enough for a visit to this southern Vermont charmer. And that’s not even taking into account the nearby skiing and the inn’s hearty bacon and buttermilk-pancake breakfast.”

Yankee Magazine picked us as one of the seven best historic inns in New England and had this to say about us, “Chef Jason Tostrup is recognized as one of Vermont’s foremost locally grounded chefs, no small feat in a state where the “locavore” esthetic enjoys near-religious status. He begins his workday by visiting farms, collecting eggs and produce. He enthuses about the quality of locally raised meat and waxes lyrical about the variety of farmstead cheeses available on his circuit–which guests are invited to tour themselves” …

We love Budget Travel! Especially when they say things like this about us:
“The farm-to-table advocate grows much of the food served at the inn’s critically acclaimed restaurant (Tostrup was named Vermont Chef of the Year in 2008), and local ranches usually supply the rest.

If that’s too fussy, stop in the inn’s casual tavern for hearty soups and pub favorites…”

About More than a basic bed and breakfast, the historic Inn at Weathersfield has become a foodies’ destination known for its rustic decor, farm-to-table cuisine and on-site cooking classroom studio, The Hidden Kitchen.

Setting Set in a wooded clearing on nearly 21-acres, the property boasts a large outdoor deck and stone firepit, a peaceful pond, vegetable/fruit/herb garden, hidden amphitheater for weddings and events, a walking trail through the woods, and a separate studio used for cooking classes, yoga retreats and business offsite meetings.
Lodging There are 12 guest rooms each with either a queen or king bed, a private bath, and most with fireplaces and spa tubs. The inn uses fine linens, plush towels and each room has terry robes, bath amenities, flat screen TV, a DVD player, free WiFi, and telephone. A full breakfast (for two) and afternoon refreshments are included in the room rate.
Dining The inn offers an a la carte and daily multi-course tasting menu in the dining room and tavern. In the tavern, guests also have the option of ordering off a tavern menu. We use only the freshest local ingredients gathered from our on-site garden and from key farm partners. We do not use any processed food.
