Located in a quintessential village setting which captures the essence of Vermont. The Marble West Inn is just outside the village and nestled between two mountains. The grounds are beautifully manicured and include two small ponds, stocked with trout. The ponds are fed by a rolling mountain brook behind the Inn. Very relaxing! The Dorset area offers many activities including, biking, hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, tennis, cross country and downhill skiing, as well as many antique shops and fine restaurants. Manchester Village, only minutes away, offers designer outlet and specialty stores, as well as many fabulous restaurants. Enjoy a stroll through Robert Todd Lincoln's Hildene or the Southern Vermont Art Center.

Exquisitely stenciled walls by one of the country's renowned stencilers greet you in the entry foyer.

Two first floor rooms with enchanting fireplaces invite you to gather with family or new-found friends. The library offers a wonderful selection of old books and current magazines. Choose one of the upholstered chairs or snuggle on the bay window seat.

The music room is accented by many antique musical instruments which contribute to the comfortable atmosphere. Enjoy relaxing music while playing a game of chess or checkers with friends, new and old.
