“Comfy historic inn”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We spent a couple of nights here just to relax. The room was large and the bed comfortable. Phil, the inn keeper, was very helpful and provided directions to attractions in the area as well as local color. The inn is historic so floors are not even, which added to the charm. Our room had a gas fireplace which kept the room toasty warm and although there was baseboard heat in the room, it did not extend to the bathroom so that room was a bit chilly in the morning since it was at the opposite end of the room from the heat. We had purchased a package through Living Social so we had a picnic lunch included which was very handy when touring around as we stopped by the river to eat which added to the charm of the trip. The attached restaurant served amazingly good food. We will likely return again when we want to just get away and spend some time chilling out.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back will be quieter as the inn is on a main road.

An historic Vermont Inn, West Dover is run by Phil and his family. He and staff are congenial and helpful with travel tips - especially helpful since some roads were still under repair - and a box lunch in a cooler.

The rooms are clean and neat but could use some upgrading. We had a front upstairs room/bath which was tiny and had only one bedside lamp. The Inn is on Route 100 which carries a lot of traffic day and night. The Inn is very handy to Mt. Snow so a very good choice for skiers.


Complementary breakfast was nicely done. Dinner menu options were tasty but limited.

Room Tip: Choose a room away rom the front/road.

You'll get a map to some great shopping, hiking, kayaking or just a pretty waterfall. Free breakfast was very tasty.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the rear are quieter.

We spent two nights at the West Dover inn and we would recommend it to others. The innkeeper Phil knew the surrounding area very well (and we did find the secret swimming hole), and the staff was friendly. The room (Garden Room) was comfortable.
