This picture-postcard Austrian chalet is open year around and is perched on a quiet hillside in the Green Mountains of north central Vermont ... mid-way between the year around resorts of Stowe and Sugarbush (both about 20 minutes drive), and near Montpelier (15 minutes) and Burlington / Lake Champlain (40 minutes). Romantic guestrooms open onto a balcony. Three cabins (each with queen bed, bathroom, sitting area, woodstove and deck) are tucked away along trails up in the forest. In the inn, a large stone fireplace and wood stove in the self-serve BYOB pub are favorite gathering places. Hike or snowshoe 40 acres of trails in the forest behind the inn. Nearby activities include world class downhill skiing, hiking, golf, fishing, boating, bicycling, soaring, canoeing, antiquing, spectacular autumn leaf viewing, outlet shopping, and touring Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory, Cabot Cheese outlet, Lake Champlain Chocolates store, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, glass blowing studios, craft and art galleries, antique stores, and more.

I stayed there for 4 nights last January to ski and visit my daughter at UVM. We had a great night's sleep and wonderful breakfasts. The Innkeepers let me stay in an adjoining room when my daughters friend joined us to ski, gratis... It was also very convenient to Sugarbush and Stowe. I bought our passes for Sugarbush directly at the B and B. I'll be back, hopefully in the next month. Thanks. Scott

Great location, cute and quaint B&B. Owners are very nice and helpful. It's a true B&B with areas shared (they have a game room) but I that is what I expected. Very good value and in a great location.

We made the most of our 1 night stay, enjoying cocoa & popcorn by the fire in the common room. Such a lovely quiet setting with a spacious room & bath. Our hosts provided all needed area info, even a self-guided tour to local bridges & waterfalls. Our stay was capped by a tasty breakfast looking out over a wooded area with birds at the feeders. Highly recommend, a peaceful delight!

We only stayed two nights as this lovely, fun chalet-style B & B. The location in the Vermont woods is inspiring. We did not have time to explore the grounds but want to go back and check out the trails. The rooms are charmingly decorated with quilts and Alpine style painted furniture (at least in our room). Linda and Jeff prepare a great breakfast serving specialities from Vermont. I want to go back in the winter and check out the fireplace in the ski season. Just terrific!
