We were more than. impressed with the period decorated rooms, great breakfasts, and fine dining restaurant with great food. The staff always treated us like guests and had smiles for us every time we passed them anywhere, and anytime. Vermont, the surrounding towns, the people, and tourist destinations were as sweet as Maple syrup. We will return, The protocols for Covid were strictly enforced with a smile. We appreciated the secure feeling of distance between tables at breakfast and dinner had as super relaxed. Super place all around.

We Came to the Dorset Inn for a wedding weekend. Amid Covid restrictions the Dorset Inn's safety protocols made us feel safe. Our room was immaculate as were the public areas and dinning room. The staff was friendly and caring. The breakfast was great. Will definitely return.

We had a mid-week get away to Dorset and had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The Inn has always been one of our favorite restaurants from when we were Dorset locals. So staying there was a new experience that we will do again. The mid-week package was great value for such a nice room so well appointed and the food was fantastic. We both were happy with the nice selection of course offerings and the breakfast was awesome. The staff were all so nice and the service excellent throughout our stay. It felt like a vacation where we felt right at home.
