Arlington’s West Mountain Inn has something for everybody – and for
every time of year. Wintertime? Ski the surrounding mountains. Spring?
Browse the farmers markets. In summer, discover local swimming holes,
and in fall, pick your own orchard apples. Even the flavors change with
the time of year, although whenever you visit, you can count on
breakfast in the dining room and local, farm-sourced fare at the Vermont
Fresh Network-member restaurant.
As the weather changes, the
views from the inn change with them. The 150 acres are a constantly
evolving landscape, from lush greenery in the warmer temperatures, to
crimson leaves in the autumn and hills of snow when it’s cold – all the
beauty you’d associate with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence
winner in the Vermont country. Regardless of what’s going on outside,
though, your room stays the same: nice and cozy, with quilts and a
wood-burning fireplace. An abode, you could say, for all seasons.
Antique furnishings, lace accents and sprawling
Vermont country views: Your guestroom will be loaded with little details
and thoughtful amenities that will inspire you to relax like you might
have in a simpler time.
Mountain Inn’s Vermont Fresh Network-member restaurant serves local,
organic ingredients, sourced from nearby farms. Dedicated to supporting
area agriculture, this charming eatery offers seasonal menus for
breakfast and dinner, in a cozy dining room that features wood-paneled
walls and a wood-burning fireplace. Dishes like
butternut-squash-and-apple soup, pan-seared pork medallions, spinach and
roasted-garlic risotto and a variety of homemade desserts make this a
favorite for both guests and locals.
Perfectly situated between the
beautiful Taconic and Green Mountain ranges, Arlington is home to
quaint, small-town charm, in the form of covered bridges, historic
buildings, antique shops, lush scenery and a variety of activities. Just
a short drive away are Bromley and Stratton ski resorts, Manchester’s
famous outlet shops and the battle monument, museum and historic
attractions of Bennington.
How to Get There
I'd give West Mountain Inn a 6 out of 5 if I could.
Hard to express our gratitude to the West Mountain Inn after we got married there in September 2019. From the owner to the hosts, bartenders and waitstaff, they could not have made us feel more at home. They were so friendly and accommodating, they truly felt like part of our group by the end of the weekend.
Aside from the people, the property is beautiful and was a perfect private and quiet place for our weekend, you really feel nestled into the mountain with fantastic natural scenery all around. The rooms, dining room, library and lounge areas are all charming.
The food was great all weekend, breakfast for everyone staying on property every morning was amazing, plus they have tea, coffee and cookies at all hours, how great is that?
We have been coming to West Mountain Inn for over 20 years since our son and daughter-in-law were married there. The atmosphere, accommodations, food and , most importantly, the staff are all wonderful. It is our home away from home.
Attended my niece's wedding, we took over the entire Inn with the wedding party and guests and the staff was always gracious and accommodating and understanding. The grounds are scenic and lush, with plenty of open spaces, views to enjoy, along spots with an Adirondack chair, and alpacas to enjoy, trails to hike and plenty of photo spots. The breakfasts were outstanding, coffee and cookies always available, bar had top notch alcohol, thanks for the Tito's vodka! The pizza was delish, wedding dinner was ok, but we loved the midnight snack of grilled cheese! Our room was lovely, The Norman Rockwell, with its three bed nooks, everyone rested well and comfortably to be greeted by the rising sun in the morning. Room did not have a fridge, but staff took care of the things needed to be chilled. The wedding was perfect and in large part due to the West Mountain Inn, so thank you.
