Mt. Philo Inn

A recent three-year restoration has transformed the property into a unique lodging that is conducive to educational retreats, family reunions or simple weekends away. A commune in the sixties, the inn most recently functioned as long-term apartment rentals but is now available to travelers looking to stay two nights or longer.

West Wing Kitchen

Innkeepers David and Jane Garbose have given thought to the inn’s facelift-- preserving the inn’s gorgeous woodwork; 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.


The boutique inn features four spacious suites-- one 2-bedroom and three 3-bedroom—located in separate wings of the building. Each “wing” has a full kitchen, bathroom and private entrance way. The décor is a mix of old and new: farmhouse tables, modern stools, velvet reading chairs, and local artwork. Kitchens are fully equipped for cooking and entertaining. Refrigerators are stocked with a breakfast basket of Vermont products. Bedrooms are outfitted with luxurious Anichini sheets. The rest is up to you.
