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
We booked a two night stay at this B&B for a wedding. The wedding was fantastic the food was great HOWEVER during checkout there was an additional $180 dollar fee tacked on to the bill for my additional guest. If you book the suite in the Millhouse and you have another person in the room I.E. 2 people per room you will be charged an additional fee. I was QUITE displeased with this additional charge that was not mentioned at the time of booking.
We have been enjoying the Wednesday pizza night for several years. The grounds, food and music are great. We are in back home in Vermont in the summer and thoroughly enjoy visiting West Mountain Inn several times. It is one of the must things to do with quests who visit us each year. A wonderful way to spend a Wednesday evening.
We went for pizza night at the West Mountain Inn last night, 7/3/19. While the setting was lovely in the garden with a view of the mountains, the pizza was likely the worse we have had anywhere. The staff making it did a terrible job. The sauce and cheese pizza was so dry we could barely swallow it. They need to learn how to make better pizza, need more sauce and cheese. The other flavors were unique, one had potatoes on it, another had sausage and corn. All in all terrible pizza for the price we paid. Service was very slow. The salad was nice and the strawberry shortcake was delicious. The band was awesome. We paid $50 for pizza and 2 drinks, very high price for what we got. We will not return.
