Fodor's Review

The dining room at this luxurious inn is a large, modern space where rich woods and high ceilings meld into a kind of nouveau Vermont aesthetic. The contemporary American cuisine emphasizes farm-to-table ingredients and has earned the restaurant "Gold Barn" honors from the Vermont Fresh Network. The dinner menu includes grilled Hollandeer Farm venison and pan-roasted pheasant breast. You can pair your choice with a bottle from the award-winning wine list. In the warmer months, sit outside on the lovely landscaped patio, which has a raw bar on Thursday to Saturday evenings.
