Welcome to the Inn at Clearwater Pond
ROMANCE, BEAUTY and a bit of ADVENTURE, just for the fun of it!
You've discovered our hidden gem. Just down the road from Woodstock, Vermont is our bit of paradise! We are close to the village and the well-known Simon Pearce Restaurant and Glass-blowing — but we're nestled in the country. Our views of the hillsides across the Quechee Gorge are stunning!
Inn at Clearwater Pond - Miles Away From Ordinary
Why stay with us?
We have the best Quechee/Woodstock Location!
Our property is the only area accommodation that backs up to the spectacular Quechee Gorge. At 165 feet, it's Vermont's deepest Gorge!
We're located only 1.4 miles from one of the most sought-after and popular restaurants in New England - Simon Pearce!
The entire Inn and all guests rooms are professionally decorated
We offer a beautiful, private and romantic cottage
Can't beat our backyard views of the hillsides from across the Gorge
Once a working farm, this place has history - 200 years, to be exact!
With seven acres of land, we are the only local B&B with a backyard large enough to accommodate three hot-air balloons as they inflate for their lift-off. Guests love to watch these massive balloons as they soar over and then drop down into the Gorge. Often, they will land here, as well
Private massages in the comfort of your room, suite or cottage
Our breakfasts, which are ample and delicious, are served daily in our beautifully decorated dining room - or - feel free to dine outdoors and enjoy our beautiful views
Fully equipped workout room
Covered front and back porches for relaxation
A pond-side stone patio with clay chiminea for even more relaxation and warm atmosphere
Pet and child friendly in certain rooms
A true country feel, yet restaurants, shopping, attractions, Woodstock, VT and New Hampshire are only 10 minutes away
Our most personal service for each and every guest...
because here in this bit of paradise, our primary goal is to make sure that each and everyone of our guests - past, present and future - enjoy an unforgettable visit. We believe this personal service begins when inquiries and reservations are first made. Online booking services appear to be convenient but don't allow us, as your future innkeepers, to make sure you are reserving the accommodation best suited to your needs. And they don't allow us to fully describe just how special the inn and grounds are. Therefore, we do hope you will consider booking directly with us. You may reserve on our website, email or call us directly at 802-295-0606. And be sure to visit our Specials Page for any current discounts we may be featuring. Also, check out our What's Happening Here and There Page for local events.

My Personal Message for February
Finally! We can see it. We can feel it, although brief. Warm sunshine and a wee bit of extra light outside as we settle in for the 6 o'clock news. Yet, there remains plenty of winter activities left to enjoy. In the midst of winter's rigid, frigid splendor, the mountains and countryside of Vermont offer great skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, x-country skiing, ice skating, sleigh rides, tubing, fat tire biking, sledding, and ice fishing. And in the evenings our B&B's, hotels and inns offer bonfires, marshmallows and a great Cabernet in front of a roaring fire!
How can you not love this time of year...
as winter winds whistle through leafless limbs and the bright light of the moon is reflected by white snow in our fields, woods and marshes? Yes, it's now February and, although the shortest of months, it's long on tradition and celebration with Valentine's Day, Presidents' Week, School Vacation, Groundhog Day and we must not forget the Inevitable Super Snowstorm! Audrey Hepburn said the best thing to hold onto in life is each other. And Charles Schultz reminds us that "all you need is love but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!" Try to take time and celebrate all your special people on February 14th with kind words and a little indulgence. Enjoy this little month that's big on what we value the most!
From the Inn at Clearwater Pond, to all my past, present and future guests, I hope you will be able to experience the true beauty of Vermont and I look forward to your visit!
