The area's longest continually operating inn is the perfect place to make new memories.
A quaint township just north of Wilmington, West Dover is stationed among the sugar maples of the Green Mountain National Forest. Here in the heart of Southern Vermont, you can delight in the best of all seasons via the landscape's vibrant autumn leaves, sparkling winter snow, or summer mountain greenery. The rural villages in these parts operate at a sleepy speed, while the nearby Mount Snow picks up the pace with its wide ski runs and challenging hiking trails.
Built in 1846 as a tavern and stagecoach stop, West Dover Inn stands at the center of town as the area's oldest continuously operating inn. Step into another era as you walk on the pumpkin pine floors and peruse the antiques throughout the hotel. Each guest room has a private bathroom, Internet access, and comes decorated with antiques. Some even have fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.
The friendly staff will provide you with credits and maps to help you kayak and hike in Green Mountain National Forest or on Mount Snow, but the hospitality doesn't stop there. At the inn's 1846 Tavern & Restaurant, Chef Kyle transforms seasonal produce, vegetables from local farms, and fresh seafood flown in overnight from Browne Trading in Portland, Maine, into culinary works of art. The tavern even provides live music three nights a week during the summer months, so you won't need to leave the inn to have a fantastic evening. Before you depart, ask for a peek at the unique poem continually written by each of the owners, preserving the inn's history for more than 100 years.
