Winter in the Northeast Kingdom! 

Winter has arrived in the Northeast Kingdom! With early snow this season it is time to switch gears and that means changing gear!  Put away those bikes, hiking shoes and swimsuits, and dust off your skis, boards, snowshoes, ice climbing equipment and of course the snowmobiles. One thing you can keep out is your fishing pole – ice fishing is very popular on lake Willoughby, just trade in the canoe for a shanty and you are good to go!

The WilloughVale is a four-season Inn, a perfect home base for all your winter adventures. When the lake freezes over the activity continues with ice fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Along the edge of the lake you can ice climb up Mt. Pigah, one of the most renowned climbing experiences in the Northeast, although this is not for the novice climber, experience is a must for scaling the 300’ steep cliff walls.

For the snowmobiling enthusiasts the Inn is conveniently located on the VAST trail. Be sure to ask about our VAST Member Discounts - offered all season long!

After a busy day of winter adventures, return to your room or cottage at the Inn, relax and take in the sweeping view of Lake Willoughby, equally breathtaking in every season.
