Room Policies and Pricing
We are primarily an adult-oriented inn (ages 12 and older). Rooms are intended for two adults, and generally we request a 2-night minimum stay.
The Paris, Allen & Stetson Suites can sleep an additional person for an extra $30 per night. Also no pets please— please check with us for alternative boarding recommendations. Room rates range from $140 to $275 per night, double occupancy.
West Hill House is a non-smoking property. We can direct you to outdoor locations where you may smoke. Also, no alcohol may be brought on to the premises by guests. Please review our other policies:
- Pets: Please leave your pets at home or please check with us for boarding recommendations. If you are allergic to cats, please be aware that our indoor cats, Smoky and Snowball, have limited access to the guest rooms and full access to the public rooms. The cats are, however, never in the Logan Suite.
- General: As West Hill House is over 150 years old most doorway widths are 28 inches or less, constrained by the original framing of the house; please take this into account when planning your reservation.
- Children: As we are primarily an Inn to come to for quiet relaxation, we welcome children age 12 or older only.
- Alcohol: We are State licensed for the sale of alcohol. We have a nice wine cellar, as well as wine by the glass, and a selection of Vermont beers available. We also have a selection of champagnes, both French and domestic. Not forgetting our Quaich Single Malt Scotch bar. State law requires that all alcoholic drinks consumed on the premises MUST be purchased from us so please do NOT bring any alcohol with you to the Inn.
- Rates are per room, per night, double occupancy. Add 9% VT tax and 4% Community Marketing fee.
- High seasons are Christmas-New Years, President’s Week, Fall Foliage season and some holiday weekends. Booking early for these times is recommended.

Acceptance of shorter bookings is subject to availability and management discretion, and if accepted an extra charge of $50 applies.
