History of the House

Our 1838 farmhouse was built by Thomas Mott, and was once part of a large dairy farm. Restored and renovated as lodging, the house maintains a rustic yet refined charm. You can still see the original post-and-beam construction, as well as the way it grew over the years in traditional New England fashion.

Our guests find cozy comfort in an English country-cottage style. Careful attention to detail is apparent throughout the house, with its wide pine floors, rag rugs, open beams, working fireplace, quilts and cotton linens. Decks and a free standing gazebo provide areas for outdoor living and/or breakfasting al fresco when desired. We offer four rooms with private baths. Three rooms have queen-size beds and the fourth room has twin beds

Innkeepers Susan and Bob will give you a full breakfast, travel information, books for browsing and peaceful corners for escape. Recreational activities are plentiful. Bring your kayak, golf clubs or bicycle.

A full breakfast is served each morning at an antique Tailors' Table. Guests will have a magnificent view of Lake Champlain while enjoying a specialty entree, fresh fruit, pastries, juice and coffee.

Specialty entrees include: cheese souffles, quiches, stuffed french toast, Bob's world-famous omelets and more. Dietary requests are honored whenever possible. Please notify us in advance of such needs.
