Acting Responsibly • Advancing Sustainability • Environmental Preservation

Our Sustainability values and environmental efforts are designed to make a positive difference in Vermont to ensure a future that offers the same opportunity for fulfillment that we enjoy today. In 2014 we began prioritizing specific goals to further reduce our energy consumption and heat with an indigenous, renewable energy resource—wood. Additionally, we have made great strides in water conservation, reducing or eliminating waste, and buying and supporting our local communities. We are dedicated to delivering service excellence and to operating our property in a responsible and sustainable way. We invite you to learn more about our activities by reviewing the sections below...

Safety & COVID-19

Our highest priority is the safety and comfort of our guests during their stays on our property. We offer a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment for our guests that is both safe and secure. With the widespread concerns over COVID-19, we are improving our already stringent cleaning protocols by adhering to the CDC Cleaning & Disinfecting Guidelines. We are taking additional hygiene precautions by performing a post-cleaning process designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses by wiping-down every contact surface with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol.
