We had a great time. The place was much better than the Inn we stayed in last year and we will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Mary and Bill were warm and welcoming and extremely knowledgable and helpful regarding surrounding hikes, shops and activities. The breakfast was lovely and the bar was well stocked! For the price you can't beat it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely place & covered bridge entry you cant miss"
Great hosts Mary and Bill....very knowledgeable of the area and best routes to view Fall foliage. Fun to chat with in the lovely bar or dining room. Will come back again someday....all the way from Oregon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, quiet but not far."
We stayed at the Birch Ridge Inn off-peak season, in September. The building is beautiful and the innkeepers were very inviting, pleasant, and friendly. Every morning, during or after our delicious breakfasts, they would ask what our plans were and gave us some suggestions on what to do around Killington. Our only issues were that the bed was pretty […] hard, and it would have been nice to have a mini fridge to put food leftovers in. Maybe that's just being picky. We definitely would recommend this bed and breakfast to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Room... Excellent Food"
This place was a great find! We had a wedding to attend about 25 minutes away and needed a reasonably priced place to stay. We chose Birch Ridge Inn based on price and reviews and were incredibly happy with our choice. The innkeepers, Bill & Mary, were so charming, welcoming and informative... offering lots of suggestions to us and other guests about […] what to do and see in the area.Breakfast was excellent both mornings but even better was our lovely dinner in the restaurant the first night we arrived. There was a great selection of entrees complemented by excellent wines recommended by Bill. Put this inn on your list and you will be so happy you did. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything we wanted. Mary is quite the host and still surprised she has time for the outstanding landscaping out in the back. Jack can keep you up late at the bar even if he has an early morning tee time. We'll be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant place to stay. No issues or concerns about recommending it to othersGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Quintessential Ski Lodging"
Loved, loved this B and B! More like an inn, this 10 unit establishment was warm, welcoming and comfortable. We arrived with another couple for an ealry ski weekend to find great accommodations and a very welcoming host and hostess. Even though it was fairly late, Bill enthusiastically opened the lovely bar and made us some terrific cocktails. I expected […] Bing Crosby to jump out at any time singing White Christmas---the place is wonderfully decorated with a fantastic fireplace and comfortable conversational seating---a perfect place for friends to spend time. In the morning our hostess, Mary, served us some fantastic muffins and breads and eggs in a puff pastry. My husband, an early riser, went in search of coffee before breakfast time. None was ready yet, but 10 minutes after he returned to our room Mary knocked on our door with two steaming cups--unbelievable! The Birch Ridge is conveniently located right down the road from the Killington ski areas and in walking distance of all the area restaurants. All in all this was a great place to spend a ski weekend with friends--- soooo much better than a non-descript hotel room! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great experience"
A great experience. Bill and Mary were most gracious hosts. Our room was rather small, but we wanted an inexpensive room. We were quite satisfied with everything. The breakfast was wonderful. We would stay here again without hesitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place in the heart of Killington"
Ths was a really nice inn to stay at in Killington. Location was convenient to everything, ski resort, restaurants, etc. Owners were very nice. Bill ran the bar in the evenings and Mary the morning breakfasts, which were very tasty.We only expected a continental breakfast so were surprised by the hot entree and service. The restaurant was closed for […] dinner since we were there off season but will try it when we go back for skiing. The menu looked amazing. Room was clean and comfortable.

"A wonderful getaway!"
This was so charming~ from the covered bridge entrance to its mountain rustic charm. The innkeepers were so helpful and friendly, and knew a lot about the area and its attractions. The room was really nice, as well. Definitely a wonderful alternative to the big chain hotels out there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Inn in Killington!"
Birch Ridge Inn was fantastic - very convenient, just down the road from Killington (mountain), near restaurants, etc., right down the street from the market. Yet, it was set back from the road in a beautiful wood-lined location, with gorgeous gardens. The Inn itself was very cute and quaint, complete with an nice dining room, Great room, and bar. The […] room itself was nice, clean and comfortable and had everything you need and even in its quaintness had modern ammenities such as WIFI, HDTV, air conditioner, and fridge. The Innkeepers were super nice and helpful - even gave us maps and suggestions on where to go and what to do. Full breakfast is included, which was great. Since it was summer, it was super quiet and peaceful. I would definitely stay again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location for skiing"
The hotel is in a great location for Killington and offers a genuine but untailored service. As long as you do it the hoteliers way you will enjoy your stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but are spoilt by TV's that are so small you can't see them and/or are hidden behind the wardrobe so that you can't see them whilst sitting on the couch. […] There are no tea/coffee making facilities and you have to ring the reception for a cuppa - impossible when the phone system is broken (as we were told that the 17 year old 'reliable' system had broken down the night before our arrival) or the reception is unmanned (most of the time). Breakfast is ok as long as you have exactly what the hotelier will deliver. Asking for two boiled eggs each morning was a major trauma with the hotelier honestly saying she didn't know how to boil an egg. Turning up the first night of a seven day stay to be told that the restaurant was full and that we could only have a late table after a lonfg exhausting journey did not set things off to a good start.

one of the most welcoming places you will stay. Mary and Bill will welcome you when you arrive, the rooms are very nice . The breakfast is a different set meal each day but, provided you are not fussey, will not disappoint. The restaurant has a limited menu but this is because the quality is very good ( closed Sunday and Monday) - the best in Killington. very friendly and attentive staff. You should feel at home.
"Great get away"
02/13/15 Semi_10 Cambridge, Massachusetts
After having flights to Alta cancelled due to more snow in Boston we decided to head to VT for some skiing and stayed at the Birch Ridge Inn. Bill and Mary are wonderful hosts and we felt cared for by all the staff. We got good advice about where to ski, where to park, etc. We reserved for two nights including ski passes and felt it was very worthwhile. It is comfortable, homey, clean and Mary is a wonderful baker and breakfast maker. Bill tended bar and it was fun there and in the dining room to talk to the other guests. It is an easy drive to the mountain. Our bed was comfortable and the room nicely decorated. We ate both nights in their dining room and the dinner prepared by new chef, Craig Cornell was superb. Menu choices were interesting. He is a very talented chef. We enjoyed every thing we ate immensely.
"Great place, great people"

Comfortable, cozy inn with great hosts who make you feel at home. Great location on the Killington access road, only minutes away from most of the mountains parking areas. Inn is clean, well maintained and warm, esp. when the fire place is going in the bar/lounge area. Bill and Mary are young-spirited hosts and full of energy; eager to help with recommendations or just talk life. Wife and I have stayed here several times and will return several more! Breakfast is included and well worth it -great way to start the day.

My wife and I had a wonderful week at Birch Ridge Inn. Comfortable, clean, very good location (close to the mountain and restaurants), delicious breakfasts and a world class service. Marie, Bill and Abigail are amazing hosts. I highly recommend this place and will definitely come back. Bruno Pappa (from Brazil)
"A hidden gem"
12/21/14 Rona P New York City, New York
This beautiful little (ten room) inn and restaurant is amazing. Bill and Mary are exceptional hosts who pride themselves on making every guest feel at home. From the beautifully appointed rooms to the home-cooked breakfasts to the roaring fire in the bar, the attention to detail is beyond. Definitely a destination for a couple looking for a special place or a solo traveler. Its location is close enough to the slopes and yet off the beaten path - a perfect combination.
10/27/14 Tip-off Nairn,Scotland
We booked a six day visit to Birch Ridge Inn over the internet in order to relax before we returned home after our exhausting visits to Washington and Boston. The Birch Ridge Inn certainly delivered and exceeded our expectations mainly due to the wonderful hospitality of Bill and Mary our waitress Aisia and the great chef who we never actually met but whose food we enjoyed every night of our visit. Lovely cosy and relaxing with a great breakfast and the best meals we enjoyed during our trip to the USA. Cannot praise enough - enjoyed relaxing in "Bills Bar" after dinner and sorting out the worlds problems with Bill whilst enjoying his collection of malt whiskies from our homeland. Mary ensured we covered all of the highlights of lovely Vermont giving us clear directions as to where to go in each day of our visit. We followed her instructions and enjoyed the best of Vermont thanks to her local knowledge and guidance. We arrived as strangers not sure what to expect and left as friends having enjoyed a wonderful six days.

We stayed for 3 nights in October, 2014. We were leaf peepers, on a driving trip checking our the beautiful fall colours of Vermont. Mary and Bill looked after us from start to finish. Mary had fresh baked cookies each day in the mid afternoon. The room was nice and well appointed. The bathroom was a good size – counter space was a little limited, but not a big deal. The bed was queen size, and very comfortable. Lots of parking available. The location is about halfway up Killington mountain. There are probably 10-15 restaurants nearby. If you wanted more restaurant choices, you’d have to drive to Rutland or Woodstock – both about a 15 minute drive. Ditto for shopping, as there isn’t much shopping on the mountain, other than sporting equipment. There is a gondola ride to the peak of Killington – it would be about a 1-2 mile drive further up the mountain from the Inn. We took that and it was worthwhile. The Inn has a full service restaurant, as well as a separate large bar. We’ve stayed at B&Bs before, but never had a restaurant and/or bar on site. This was a nice touch as it meant you could stay on the property in the evening if you so chose. Bill and Mary were around a lot to help with anything we needed, and to tell stories about the Inn or their lives. The restaurant was lovely. Very small – maybe room for 25-30 diners – and the menu only has about 10 entrees each night, but we found something that piqued our interest each night. The food was excellent. We ate at the restaurant 2 of the 3 nights there. Breakfast was wonderful each day. There are two options each morning – a hot item (French toast one day, frittata the second day) or you can have a cold option – cereal and breads. Coffee and excellent orange or cranberry juice was provided. The day we left, we were on the road before breakfast was available, but Mary had set aside a tray of muffins and bread for us. This was a very nice touch. The rate was reasonable for October in Vermont. All in all an excellent stay.
"Vermont greatest hits"
09/26/14 Paco R Key West, Florida, United States
The inn keepers take care of every single detail. Their own creation breakfast recipes are served next to a handpicked natural flower bouquet (they look like fake, but go ahead and smell them, they're from the garden). The cozy rooms are very clean, the whole property is immaculate. We decided to follow their suggestions for hikes, driving and dining and had the greatest time. "Like staying with extended family without being overwhelmed"
"Great start of our vacation"
09/09/14 wilye Fairport, New York
This was our first time at an inn instead of a hotel. We loved it from the welcoming peanut butter cookies and beyond. The bedroom was immaculate. Only drawback was the sink was very small and it had a glass ledge right above so you really had to be careful spitting out your toothpaste but this would not prevent me from staying in this room again. The frittata in the morning was yummy and the breads. Mary and Bill were so very friendly and Mary really helped me plan our route the next day as it was very complicated.
"Like being at a friend's home"
09/04/14 CBW47 Yorktown, VA
My husband and I stayed here for two nights and were the only guests, so owner Bill gave us his full attention, being greeter, bartender and company, and breakfast chef (in Mary's absence). Our room was a comfortable size, with a good king-size bed, and the bathroom was well outfitted with plenty of towels and spacious. The TV over the gas fireplace at the foot of the bed was cleverly hidden by sliding pictures. Bill's breakfast the first day was a veggie and sausage frittata, with accompanying fresh muffins and sweet breads. Second day - blueberry pancakes with both a blueberry sauce and real maple syrup on the side, with bacon. Kudos to Chef Bill! We enjoyed our stay quite a bit, and he was helpful in suggesting restaurants and walks.
