New and Exciting Features at the WilloughVale Inn and Cottages

The WilloughVale Inn’s new and improved waterfront has something for every vacationer this summer. After months of hard work, the Inn is ready to welcome visitors with new enhancements that make it the ultimate spot to relax on or near the water. The waterfront grounds and facilities have never looked more inviting now that renovations are complete. A new game room, expanded dock and patio have been added as well as a new lighter fare menu, so you’ll be sure to find an array of choices to tempt your palate. Kids of all ages who need a game fix will love the new game room downstairs in the Main Inn building with air hockey, pool, video games, Nintendo Wii and more.

“Our waterfront is such a gorgeous spot that it’s always been the natural focal point for the WilloughVale Inn and our visitors,” said innkeeper Roy Clark. “But we wanted to give our guests an enhanced lakeside experience that offers even more ways to unwind and enjoy the water.”

The waterfront has been transformed into a lakeside resort experience in true Vermont tradition. There is an expanded fleet of watercraft including kayaks, canoes, a Sunfish and a new 14 foot Sylvan Sea Snapper motorboat. For those looking to have some serious fun, there is a new 20 foot diameter Rave water trampoline. All these amenities were added to the array of existing waterfront features that were put in place last year, which include a new floating dock, playground equipment and a fire pit perfect for roasting s’mores after the sun goes down.

The popular Robert Frost cottage has been given some extra TLC this past season as well. The cottage was renovated to include a new kitchen with dishwasher and washer/dryer, enlarged dining area and central air-conditioning. The Main Inn, Robert Frost and Angler cottages have been freshened up with a new coat of paint as well.
