Beautiful Select Registry Vermont retreat

Hill Farm Inn, Arlington, Vermont

Battenkill suite

Deluxe Queen room

A peaceful stay at a gorgeous country getaway that balances modern updates with historic charm

Hill Farm Inn in Arlington, Vermont is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner and a member of the prestigious Select Registry collection. With buildings dating as far back as 1790 and 1830, this property is newly renovated, but about as historic as New England getaways get – and it’s as rustic as it is historic, thanks to the location among two mountain ranges and on the world-famous Battenkill. Add some furry "farm friends" to your social circle here, like a Pygmy goat, a barn cat or two pot-bellied pigs, or stroll (or cross-country ski) over the mile path that leads through marshes and along the riverbanks. Mornings, winter evenings and once a week in summer, sample the French-infused cuisine of Chef Mariah, incorporating seasonal produce, fresh from one of four farmers markets within half an hour.

Once you’ve thoroughly acquainted yourself with the 50 acres of plant life and wildlife, head back off the grounds, and continue acquainting yourself with the region’s natural and cultural riches. Pay a visit to one of those farmers markets, drive to 20-minutes-away Bromley Mountain in the winter, make maple sugar in spring, hike in the summer, or pick apples in the fall. Regardless of the season, however, there’s no better place than Hill Farm Inn once evening falls. That’s because you can watch the sunset from an Adirondack chair between the Taconics and Green Mountains – and then snuggle under your abode’s down comforter and rest up for another perfect day.
