Spotlight on the West Mountain Inn

This inn is located on 150 acres of wooded mountainside on the Battenkill river in the village of Arlington, VT.

You truly are "One of the Folks" when visiting the inn.

The meticulously maintained grounds exhibit all of Vermont's natural beauty. From flowers to mountain views, you will see it all.

The 14 elegant rooms in the Main Inn are all that you would expect and more. Screened in porches, views, fireplaces and tons of character. We really dig the "Norman Rockwell" room with 3 built in beds ("sleeping nooks") if you are visiting with the family.

Entertaining is made easy during your visit. There is a well stocked bar with views to die for (oh- and if Linda happens to be behind the bar you know you're in for a treat- she's gifted!) There is a lovely restaurant in the Main Inn with a top notch chef serving New England fare with local farm fresh ingredients. For a more "low key" dining experience, they have added an outdoor brick oven where the chef prepares fresh pizzas.

Wedding planning??? You should definitely check it out. This historic barn is converted to one of the most elegant wedding venues out there.

Favorite Recipes


In an attempt to maintain (or more honestly, establish) a healthy lifestyle, I have found that lunch is where I tend to fall apart. Perhaps handful of grapes (truth: pretzels), or maybe a ready-made protein shake (truth: Starbucks Vanilla Latte), or possibly a yogurt with a sprinkling of granola (truth: trail mix with a spoonful of Ben & Jerry's) leave me guilt-ridden and hungry a short time later. The truth is, we all want to be healthy, but we need a little help. This morning I got up a little earlier than usual and pulled out some of our finds from the Farmer's Market this past...


Could these unassuming avocados possibly bring forth the deliciousness of chocolate pudding? Why yes they could...There are many recipes out there for avocado pudding, but this has proven to be my favorite. It's so simple and quick.


As mentioned earlier this week on Today, freshly made bread is one of the simple things that make people feel great. No carbs?? No Gluten?? It's okay- the smell of it baking is just as rewarding. Donate the bread and you make someone else's day, too!

Simple things make us happiest
