Early check-in or late check-out. Please inquire in advance. Depending upon availability, we are happy to make arrangements. It's possible guests may access to the property before check-in with prior arrangement.

Directions - Midway between Burlington and Middlebury, we are at 27 Inn Road, at the intersection of Mt. Philo Road in Charlotte, Vermont, next to Mt. Philo State Park. From Route 7: Turn east onto State Park Road. Follow 1/2 mile to the end. Turn right at entrance to Mt. Philo State on Mt. Philo road.  The Inn is located 2/10ths of a mile on the left.  Look for our sign and phone booth.

Security - There have been no crimes at the Mt. Philo Inn in the 28 years we have been owners. Each suite has it's own entrance and lock.  Keys will be available upon arrival. There are security cameras on the exterior of the building.

Respect -  Please demonstrate appropriate respect toward other guests and our neighbors.  Noise can be a concern. We request general quiet after 10:30 PM, especially outside.  Dogs that bark should be loved into quiet. Please don't trespass on our neighbors lawns.  Clean up dog poop on traveled land, otherwise, let it sit.

Rules - We don’t have many rules. Don’t climb on any roof. Don’t smoke tobacco inside. Dogs cannot bark incessantly. The MPI has worked hard to create a casual, relaxed environment with 5 star amenities and few rules. Enjoy
