Welcome to one of the prettiest cycling areas in the country. Directly from the Inn at Charlotte B&B are several of Vermont's best cycling routes. Cyclists love us because they wake up, enjoy a relaxing breakfast, and head right out the door with their bikes. Each route offers a beautiful distinct landscape. We help cyclists plan their routes and make recommendations for the hidden gems in the area! After biking take a relaxing dip in the pool and then head out to a local restaurant or the night life of Burlington.
We got ya hiking right here! The absolute gem of the region is Mt Philo. This state park is Vermont's most popular and for good reason: it has one of the most breathtaking views found any where in the Northeast. Mount Philo is walking distance from the Inn (the hike takes about 1 1/2 hr or you can drive to the top). In addition, there are many other options from gentle pastoral strolls to wilderness mountain hikes and we would be happy to give you our suggestions.
Lake Champlain is one of America's most beautiful lakes. With the Green Mountains to east and the Adirondacks to the west it provides endless recreational opportunities; boating, biking, kayaking, swimming, fishing, ferry rides and endless exploration.
In the past 10 years we have only lost 3 guests to Champ!
The Inn offers exceptional bike routes just outside your door: north to Burlington, east into the hills, south to Addison County and west on the ferry to the Adirondacks; all distinct, beautiful world class loops. You will see so much more of what the lake offers this way vs. sticking to the main roads circling the lake. Ride light, return to a refreshing shower, go out to dinner, wake up to a full delicious breakfast and head out for another ride!!
