Vermont Natives

Vermont wildlife is amazing! 

Whether you are cruising the back roads, biking on the mountain trails or paddling on Lake Willoughby it is an opportunity to observe some amazing animals, such as the moose and the loons.  It is definitely worth the time and the effort to find these animals and to just observe their activities.

Whether you are watching the loons or the moose, please be careful and do not try to feed wild animals and always be careful around wild animals.  With this in mind, enjoy the peaceful beauty of each of these creatures in their natural habitat.

From the Willoughvale Inn you have convenient access to Lake Willoughby and not to far to go for the mountain trails.  You never know what you may encounter.  When you do please be sure to snap a pic or a video and share it with us.

" By far, one of the best places I've ever stayed. Nicole and Julian greeted us as soon as we entered and took care of us as if we knew them for ever."

"Stayed here for two nights this past weekend in osprey room. The lodge, restaurant and room were very clean and the staff very friendly. Great view from room of the lake."

"We just got back form the WilloughVale Inn yesterday and I am already yearning to return. It was just fantastic, the Loon room with a view to the Lake and yes we heard the loons calling,"

Comments such as these make it all worthwhile and we know we look forward to meeting our guests everyday.

Recently, the Vermont snow has been a little off so some of our guests have been in the area for ice fishing, just a remantic getaway or some relaxation while visiting the waterpark. The inn is a short drive from the ski lodges and they are in full operation wit the man made snow.
