An historic inn & location worthy of great poets

If traveling through Vermont’s magnificent Northeast Kingdom to get to the WilloughVale Inn and Cottages reminds you of poetry, you’re in good company. In 1909, beloved poet Robert Frost camped with his family in tents on land that ultimately became inn property. He got milk and eggs from the then-Conley Farmhouse. Now you can stay in the cozy Robert Frost Cottage with its views of the mountains and Lake Willoughby, which Frost called a “fair, pretty sheet of water.” Seven other cottages plus 11 rooms at the romantic inn provide the perfect getaway every season of the year. Activities at or nearby the inn range from canoeing and kayaking in the warmer months to skiing, dog-sledding and snowmobiling in the winter.

Romantic inn takes guests back to more relaxed era

Hospitality is an age-old tradition at the Rabbit Hill Inn, which began in the late 1700s as a place where traders traveling from Montreal to Boston or Portland could hoist a tankard of ale and lodge overnight. Save one period in the 1900s when it was a private home, Rabbit Hill has been an inn ever since. Today’s guests in the 19-room bed and breakfast will discover not only modern comforts (some rooms have double hydromassage tubs) but those that harken back to a relaxed age: a candlelit dining room serving exquisitely crafted American fare, crackling fireplaces, puzzles in cozy sitting rooms, lemonade in the afternoon on the porch and gazebos where you can listen to the waterfall.
