The Inn at Water's Edge
Boutique Bed & Breakfast
The Inn at Water's Edge
was established in 1999 and completely renovated in 2020
with your comfort and delight in mind.
Nestled between two waterfronts -- Echo Lake and the Black River
and minutes from Okemo Mountain Resort and Killington Ski Resort,
The Inn at Water's Edge offers a plethora of adventures for those who enjoy exploration,
and sweet solitude and peace for those who just want to relax.
Our eleven bedrooms have been completely renovated and are uniquely and beautifully decorated.
Each bedroom has an adjoining, private, custom-tiled bathroom
with handmade toiletries developed exclusively for the Inn.
Our public spaces have also been rejuvenated and exude the warm flavor of hospitality and welcome.
Our authentic English Pub adjoining The Gathering Place offers
a lovely space for meetings, family reunions, celebrations, and retreats.
Our dining rooms are intimate and timeless, showcasing beautiful parquet floors which are
original to the 1878 home.
Breakfasts at the Inn are a delight to the eye and palette
with farm-to-table creations ranging from coconut french toast to chilaquiles.
We are currently open for our most popular season of the year -- SKI and SNOW
(though Summer and Autumn are certainly close seconds)!
We continue to host our Prix Fixe Dinners and are looking to add a few other food options.

Our stay at The Inn At Water's Edge was great. The Inn has undergone a complete renovation and the finished product is incredible. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the food was amazing.
Mitch, the chef, makes almost everything from scratch and he puts his unique spin on all of the dishes whether it is his soup, pancakes or gelato.
Great place to stay for families or for a couples get away. We can't wait for our next visit.
