Rabbit Hill Inn
Rabbit Hill is a deservedly renowned quintessential country inn in Northern Vermont, where warmth and hospitality is truly elevated to an art. We’ve had the pleasure of shooting for innkeepers Leslie and Brian many times over the last 7 years. To capture the essence of Rabbit Hill is a formidable photographic challenge, since the “soul” of the inn is both elusive and not particularly visual. With this in mind, we sought to convey the “life of the inn”–the stellar fireside dining experience, the iconic “country inn” moments, the warm social aspect of the experience, and the always impressive dedication to service and hospitality that has earned this inn so many awards over the years. During this shoot, we used models extensively to bring the experience alive, and to portray those signature Rabbit Hill Inn activities such as solving a puzzle, enjoying afternoon refreshments or talking and laughing over a drink at The Snooty Fox Tavern. To bring a sense of warmth, homey-ness and authenticity to the dining aspect, we shot a great deal in the inn’s kitchen, featuring the chef and kitchen staff actually preparing food. FInally, we convinced the owners to pose for some shots, showing them chatting with and assisting their guests, which they do constantly and with great pleasure. Read a post we wrote about Rabbit Hill from our blog, Fresh Views, which features some interesting before and after shots.
