Historic Vermont Inn in Continuous Operation Since 1796

One of Vermont’s oldest continuously operating inns, The Dorset Inn first welcomed guests in 1796. After more than 200 years and several renovations, the inn maintains its quaint New England charm. Period furnishings and wide-plank floors distinguish the living rooms, restored tavern, and candlelit dining room. The inn's old-fashioned look and attention to detail helped it earn a spot on Yankee magazine's list of New England's Best Historic Inns.

While each of the individually decorated guest rooms exudes the warmth and comfort of a country cottage in the Green Mountains, they also provide TV, wireless Internet access, and electric maple-syrup dispensers. Meals served in the dining room are crafted with ingredients sourced from local farmers and the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The menu changes frequently, but wild shrimp, mussels, and cobbler with vanilla ice cream are always on hand. The tavern pours selections from a wide-ranging wine list—Wine Spectator gave the inn its Award of Excellence in 2012—as well as single-malt scotch, Irish whiskey, and bourbon.

The nearby Dorset Playhouse hosts the Dorset Theatre Festival, which has produced plays for the past 35-plus years. Upcoming events include The Scene, a comedy starring Tim Daly that runs June 19—July 7 and the Civil War-era The Whipping Man, running July 11—July 20.

Dorset, Vermont: New England Town Surrounded by Forested Mountains

Dorset was called one of New England’s best small towns by Boston Magazine, which wrote that “this is what picture perfect looks like.” The town is dotted with homes and shops tucked into the forested mountains and valleys. Visitors browsing the region's stores will likely come away with fresh cheeses, local maple syrup, and warm woolens.

About 20 minutes south of town is Hildene, the Georgian Revival mansion built by Robert Todd Lincoln. Tours of the Lincoln home include access to a restored Pullman train car as well as a herd of Nubian goats. Just a few minutes to the west, Merck Forest & Farmland Center rests on 3,160 acres of forest and farmland in southwestern Vermont’s Taconic Mountains and provides ample trails for exploration, as well as programs and demonstrations.

The slopes of Stratton and Bromley mountain resorts are a gorgeous setting for winter skiing and summer hiking. At Stratton, ride the gondola to the top of the mountain, which rises nearly 4,000 feet high. On a clear day, the view spans four states and several mountain ranges, such as the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
