Our stay at the Rabbit Hill Inn was wonderful from the moment we stepped inside and were given our tour. Our room was very clean and cozy with a gas fireplace. The food for both breakfast and dinner was superb. Leslie took the time to assist us in planning a day trip and I appreciated her input. We will return in the years to come! Thanks so much Brian, Leslie and Lindsey!

We have been coming to the Rabbit Hill Inn for thirty years and have never been disappointed. Brian and Leslie are the consummate hosts and the staff is very attentive. Our room, Cedar Glen, was immaculately clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed a very tasty and well-prepared dinner at the inn on one evening. The inn is about 10 miles from St. Johnsbury, Vermont and Littleton, New Hampshire and about an hour’s ride from the Mt. Washington area. It is located in a tiny, classic New England village, Lower Waterford, Vermont. Still a great place after all these years.

We were treated like royalty even better. Leslie and Brian were there with a smile. They have thought of every detail to make this stay special. So relaxing and the food five star. Everything was spotless nothing broke and details too countless. Their breakfast was over the top. Delicious

We know that time away does not come easy for most people. So that precious "away time" needs to be wonderful and memorable. We so appreciate that you chose to be with us. And we look forward to hosting you again and again. :) :)

We just spent three wonderful evenings at the inn. This visit, our third, was to celebrate our 22nd anniversary. Everything we loved about this magical place remains intact: the scrumptious breakfasts, romantic dinners, challenging Stave puzzles and most importantly, the warm hospitality extended by Brian, Leslie and the entire inn staff which made us feel like family. This visit we stayed in the Jonathan Cummings suite - the pictures on the website don’t do it justice. We spent many hours on the large private balcony taking in the wonderful view of the White mountains in the distance. We look forward to our next visit! The Cohens

Based on various “awards, etc.” that Rabbit Hill has won, we visited for several days. Yes, the reception was warm and friendly, but a few board games and a tired shuffleboard court don’t add up to what most folks call a resort. It’s a B&B with dinner. Period.

The Rabbit Hill Inn once again does not disappoint! Leslie was welcoming and there to meet any of our needed throughout our stay. The entire staff was top notch as were the breakfast, afternoon sweets, and dinner. Rabbit Hill Inn absolutely deserves it's Distinguished Inn standing. We will definitely return!

Can't say enough about this awesome place. From the moment we checked in I felt at home. Brian and Leslie, the innkeepers, do a marvelous job running this place. They were helpful, but not overbearing. Everything was so well thought out from the chargers next to the bed, to the storage next to the sink. We stayed in the Turnabout room which was so cozy with a fireplace, robes, jacuzzi tub, spacious shower, comfortable sitting. It's obvious that a lot of love went into this place with thoughtful touches such as books to read, puzzles to put together, games to play, and pastries at breakfast and in the afternoon. For couples it is a very romantic inn to stay at. Close to a number of places nearby to explore, including the mountains. Definitely needed to spend more time there. Book a week, you'll need it.

If only there were six stars or words that could describe every bit of the Rabbit Hill Inn experience, but, alas, there are not. However, there is an article hanging outside the dining area in which the Boston Globe announced that RHI had won The top resort and then wrote, "We had some questions... " Just stay here. Feel the authentic warmth from Leslie and Brian and every single member of the staff. The rooms are lovely, the food delicious, the little bar, quaint and a perfect way to meet others. We will return. It is THAT good. No more questions!

After hearing about Rabbit Hill for many years, we finally went! Brian and Leslie and their entire staff go above and beyond to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The Inn is beautiful and well kept, the food is five-star worthy, and the staff professional and helpful. Our stay was everything we could have hoped for, and we will be going back. We highly recommend making time to visit this beautiful gem in Vermont.
