We have been voted twice by “Yankee Magazine” as the top place to stay in the Northeast Kingdom.  We are also the longest running, most successful Bed & Breakfast Inn here  in the Northeast Kingdom with over 13 years experience!

Our one of a kind pristine Vermont inn sits on seven secluded acres of peaceful tranquility with a scenic view of Lake Salem. Breathe “Inn” the clean, fresh air of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

 We are located in the lovely town of Derby, Vermont – the “Crown Jewel” of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom away from the crowds and traffic in the center of town.  Situated on beautiful Lake Salem with free use of a kayak, canoe or paddle boat.
