Food & Wine

General Manager Mariah Macfarlane returns to her roots at Hill Farm. After waiting tables as a young actress in New York, studying at the Ritz Escoffier in France, and serving as private chef in wonderful places like Fishers Island, Aspen, and Jackson Hole, she brings her warm, graceful, and talented persona to the inn. Breakfasts are delightful. Small Plates at Pub Nights celebrate the seasons. Intimate dinners and parties catered in-house are exquisite and comforting all at once.

Rooms & Suites

The Hill Farm Inn has a rich history. The Hill family owned and farmed this property for over 200 years and began to invite paying guests into their home over 100 years ago. The property is a local landmark and almost anyone you meet in the community has a personal story to tell about the Inn. Many of the Inn’s guests have been coming here for years, if not generations. The main Inn was built in 1830, and the 1790 House (the original home) was built in 1790. The entire campus was in need of restoration when Don and Anne Pollard purchased the property in 2012.

The Pollards worked closely with Manchester-based Architect and Decorator team of David and Nina Mooney and a team of local master craftsmen to retain the unique character of the Hill Farm Inn as a comfortable place to stay and relax, while improving its finishes and efficiency.

The property offers guest accommodations in three buildings; the main house, the Farmhouse (a freestanding single rental that sleeps up to eight with a full kitchen) and the 1790 house. All twelve rooms are elegant and cozy at once; think custom marble baths, down pillows and comforters, Franklin stoves, and gorgeous views of the property, valley, and mountains.
