A Romantic Vermont Bed & Breakfast Inn ~ Northern Vermont's Rabbit Hill Inn is a luxurious and truly romantic Vermont bed and breakfast country inn. It is the perfect destination for adults seeking a New England vacation, honeymoon, intimate romantic getaway, celebration, or a relaxing escape to Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Here you will find unparalled hospitality, service that pampers, peaceful surrounding, incredible cuisine, and endless activities. The inn boasts 19 romantic, uniquely appointed Vermont B&B guestrooms and suites – most with glowing fireplaces, mountain views, and luxe bathroom features such as double whirlpool tubs and spa showers. Choose from a broad range of decor styles, including traditional, American country, art deco, urban chic, or contemporary. All rooms are carefully detailed and filled with amenities, keeping your needs and comforts in mind.

Exquisite Dining ~ Sophisticated Northern Vermont farm to table dining at Rabbit Hill Inn rivals any big city restaurant. Enjoy creative breakfasts by candlelight and delicate pastries & tea served mid-day. In the evening, relax in the pub for a glass of wine, Vermont local craft beer, or cocktail. For dinner, enjoy exciting, artfully prepared cuisine showcasing the best locally sourced ingredients. The food pairs perfectly with the romantic and comfortable atmosphere. The Rabbit Hill Inn Restaurant is the only AAA Four Diamond Restaurant in all of Northern Vermont.

Explore the Northeast Kingdom ~ In the tiny village of Lower Waterford, the Rabbit Hill Inn sits on 15 acres of gardens and wooded trails. A stroll past the white steeple church takes you to the Connecticut River and a glance south captures the majestic views of the White Mountains. Yet the inn is only minutes from St. Johnsbury, Vermont and Littleton, NH -- two charming New England towns offering fun shopping, antiquing, art galleries and museums. Wander a bit further to visit Franconia Notch State Park, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, Cabot Cheese Creamery, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, and maple syrup farms. We are neighbors to some of the best Vermont craft breweries and distillers. Check out Hill Farmstead Brewery (rated #1 craft brewery in the world).

When the snow falls, ski the mountains of Burke, Cannon, Bretton Woods, or Loon. Go snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or cross country skiing. Take a romantic private horse-drawn sleigh ride. Warmer weather invites you to enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, ziplining, swimming, ATV riding, and golf. The adventure list goes on and on. Of course, save time for an in-room massage - the perfect way to relax after any activity!

Rabbit Hill Inn has been named a Top Ten Inn in the United States by TripAdvisor. And, it has been selected One of the Best 100 Hotels in the World by Travel+Leisure Magazine, and rated a Top Ten Inn Worldwide by BedandBreakfast.com.

Come see why Rabbit Hill Inn really is “a paradise for the senses, vacation for the soul!”
