Southern Vermont Dining

While some may think Vermont is all about maple syrup, there is so much more to the story. Vermont leads the nation in the local food movement, relying faithfully on local farms and small businesses to keep its independent ‘food chain’ vibrant and strong. Our area restaurants are strikingly diverse in their offerings, perfect for lunches and dinners when you stay at our bed and breakfast. Distances and times shown are “from the inn” measures.

Outer Limits Brewing (half mile, a nice walk)  The beer is made on-site and presents you with many offerings. The food menu is rather limited, but who needs more than fantastic chicken wings and wood-fired pizza?? 

Murdock’s On the Green (half mile, nice walk)  Informal and comfortable, this neighborhood restaurant reminds us of the bar on Cheers – where everybody knows your name. Covered porch offers seasonal outdoor dining.
