Like a home away from home, this is the place to reconnect with friends and family, disconnect from the world, and start new traditions.

Middlebury is located in Central Vermont in the beautiful, rolling farmland of the Champlain Valley, nestled next to the Green Mountains.  The quintessential Vermont village, Middlebury was built around Otter Creek, with its beautiful falls. 

Church spires rise above the numerous shops, restaurants, and village green.  It is the home of Middlebury College, an exceptional liberal arts college.  This provides excellent opportunities for world-class concerts and plays, and exciting college sports.

There is also plenty to do right in the neighborhood. Middlebury is home to the Sheldon Museum, the oldest community museum in the country.  Nearby are the Robert Frost Homestead, the famed Bread Loaf Writers' School, and the Middlebury College Museum of Art. 

The Green Mountain National Forest and the Moosalamoo Wilderness area are just up the mountain.  These areas provide the outdoor enthusiast with endless options!  Our rolling hills, numerous streams, and forested mountains make this an ideal location for fly fishing, hiking, and bicycling, our most popular summer activities.

There are some of the best of each right here in the heart of Vermont!  Check with Innkeeper Dan as these are his passions, and he can direct you to the secret fishing spot or the most beautiful ride. 

In the winter, we are always covered in snow. The Middlebury Snow Bowl is an excellent location for great family skiing.  If you want the big mountains, Mad River Glen, Sugarbush, and Killington are less than an hour drive.   Don’t forget about fall, our busiest season!  The fall colors just don’t get better than right here in Vermont.
Middlebury's central Vermont location makes it an easy drive to major attractions: the Shelburne Museum, New York's Fort Ticonderoga, Lake Champlain, and the ski slopes of Mount Mansfield
