Helpful Reservation and Guest Policies at West Hill House B&B

West Hill House B&B is primarily an adult-oriented B&B (ages 12 and older). Also, we do not accommodate guest’s pets — please check with us for alternative local boarding recommendations. Rooms are primarily intended for two adults, and generally, we request a two-night minimum stay.

West Hill House B&B is a non-smoking property. 

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. We also have a selection of Champagnes and sparkling wines. 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 into the B&B.

Accessibility Policy

West Hill House B&B is committed to do what is economically feasible to service the needs of disabled guests on our website and at the B&B. Note that the structure and framing of the 1850s building mean that most external and internal doorways are 28 inches wide or less, and using stairs is required for all of our guest rooms. You can read more details in our Accessibility Policy.

Room rates start from $160 per night, double occupancy, and always include our served 3-course breakfast. A two-night minimum stay is requested at all times. A three-night minimum stay is required for some weekends and holiday periods.
