Situated at the base of Mt. Philo in picturesque Charlotte, Vermont's most affluent town, with stunning panoramic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains, the Mt. Philo Inn offers guests the privacy, spaciousness and tranquility of a home in the country, with the amenities of a boutique hotel.
The historic inn features four spacious suites-- three 3-bedroom and one 2-bedroom —located in separate wings of the building. Each “wing” has a complete kitchen, 2 bathrooms and private entrance way.
The Mt. Philo Inn provides a comfortable and genuine Vermont experience, away from the highways and lights, but convenient to both Burlington and Middlebury. We feature solidly crafted furniture, hardwood floors, stone counters, locally sourced foods, soaps and artwork. Each suite has a kitchen, fully equipped for cooking and entertaining. Refrigerators are stocked with a breakfast basket of Vermont products.
The century-old inn is in Charlotte, the heart of the Champlain Valley, with the private, original carriage road to Mt. Philo State Park and its many recreational options. The Inn is surrounded by preserved fields and mountain ranges, but conveniently located with easy access to the restaurants, clubs, galleries, bookstores and shops of Burlington and Middlebury.
Our unique spacious structure is conducive to family reunions, educational retreats, or simple weekends away. A commune in the sixties, the inn is now available by the day, week or month.
Innkeepers for over 25 years, David and Jane Garbose have given thought to the inn’s facelift-- preserving the inn’s gorgeous woodwork and hardware; sourcing local building materials when possible; decorating with a minimalist and eclectic style; and emphasizing products from local companies. The result is an updated classic that exudes a simple elegance and peaceful vibe.
