Fodor's Expert Review Rabbit Hill Inn

48 Lower Waterford Rd., 11 miles south of St. Johnsbury, Lower Waterford, Vermont, 05848, USA

Few inns in New England garner the word-of-mouth buzz that Rabbit Hill seems to from its satisfied guests, but it's no surprise as this inn is full of small pleasures, including 15 acres of gardens and walking trails, a spring-fed pond, and gazebo. Most of the spacious, elegant guest rooms have fireplaces, two-person whirlpool tubs, and views of the Connecticut River and New Hampshire's White Mountains. The intimate dining room serves contemporary new American and regional dishes, drawing from local and seasonal sources.
