During your stay you are pampered by a caring staff and by innkeepers eager to share the pleasures of their Green Mountain home.
In the spring, summer or fall, guests hike the Inn's 4 mile network of trails through 160 acres of pine and maple forest and rock-wall edged meadows covered with wild flowers. In two nearby state parks, guests can hike along a rushing white water river (picnic on the sun-lit rocks midstream), or climb to a scenic mountain vista. Enjoy a swim in our brick-terraced heated pool or a game of tennis on our native Vermont clay court, both overlooking spectacular views down the valley. Golf, biking and horseback riding are all available nearby.
In the winter, guest can experience 10 kilometers of groomed cross country ski trails here at the inn or sample the conditions at any of five nearby cross country touring centers. Downhill skiing at Stratton, Mount Snow or Bromley is just 25 minutes away. They may also choose to experience an adrenaline rush on a toboggan, skate under the lights on the inns pond or snowshoe through endless untracked wilderness out the back door.
