Overview

A romantic retreat with homemade eats spread between 18th and 19th century buildings with access to ski spots

The Lowdown

With a hilly nest in northeastern Vermont, the estate-style Rabbit Hill Inn is as homey as it is scenic. Dating back to 1795, the rooms are split between the main house, the original historic building and a carriage house, and décor runs the gamut from rustic-chic to fusty florals. Some rooms have fireplaces, canopy beds and/or double whirlpool tubs. Set on 15 acres of manicured gardens and wooded hills (plus a spring-fed pond), there are plenty of hiking trails and outdoor adventures. The kitchen will be sure you’re fueled up with housemade granola and hot breakfasts (think cheddar and roasted red pepper egg Napoleons with sundried tomato anglaise and rosemary potato galette) followed by elegant afternoon teas, craft cocktails and seasonal American fare like roasted Cavendish guinea hen with truffle glazed corn and patty pans for dinner.

In the Area

In the winter, you’re within driving distance of the slopes at Cannon, Burke or Bretton Woods. The hotel can arrange for romantic winter sleigh rides as well. Spend a day strolling through picturesque Littleton, NH, about 15 minutes away, whose quaint streets are lined with antiques shops, galleries, boutiques and cafes. Sample the hearty American fare at Bailiwick’s Fine Restaurant with dishes like farm stand risotto and pork tenderloin with sweet potato-pineapple hash. Head north to St. Johnsbury to visit the 1871 Athenaeum, a historic library with an impressive collection of American art.

Beautiful B&B

My husband and I enjoyed a few days at the Rabbit Hill Inn last week. The inn is so beautiful and cozy. Our room was so comfortable with all the amenities one would expect. The gas fireplace added to the cozy atmosphere.
Loved my afternoon tea and few baked pastries which were so delicious while I tried my hand at one of their numerous challenging jigsaw puzzles. This was done is a very comfortable living room at the inn.
The breakfasts served were outstanding and plentiful. We also enjoyed dinner one night and the meals were superb. Every member of the staff were very attentive and friendly. Thanks so much to Leslie for making this a truly enjoyable few days.
We will return.

This place is magical! The customer service is top notch. Everyone is so nice and they make sure you’re comfortable and having a nice time. Every night when we went back to our room (which was breathtaking) they lit candles, the fire place, and had nice music on for us. There was fresh cut roses in the room, champagne with fresh ice daily and bath oils for the jacuzzi tub. The food was amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner. The arranged a guided atv tour with a picnic lunch that could have been a gourmet meal. We also had in room massages which were nice after the atv rides. We will definitely be back for our anniversaries. Also don’t let the area fool you, there’s so much to do in a 20-30 min drive from the Inn.

What an incredible place!

We read only good things about Rabbit Hill Inn, so our expectations were high; but, we were blown away by this place! Not only was the Inn gorgeous and immaculate, but the hospitality and service are over the top. Our room awaited us with lights on, music playing, and two cute bunnies on our bed holding an information folder. Our dinner in the inn's dining room was delicious and included several special touches. Upon returning to our room, there were candles lit, romantic music playing, the lighting was dimmed, the bathroom had been freshened, and chocolates were on the bed. With the attention to detail, lots of personal service, special touches throughout our stay -- we can't wait to go back!
