Welcome to the Inn at Clearwater Pond
A Message From the Innkeeper
In light of concern for the safety and well-being of our guests and employees and as a precautionary measure, our inn is now temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Please keep checking back with us as we continue to monitor information from public health officials. Our plan is to re-open May 1, 2020. And to our guests with existing reservations and those guests wishing to make a reservation, please read our most fair cancellation policy, which is written on our Make A Reservation page. Now more then ever, your commitment to small businesses is so important to the well-being of our country.
Be safe, Be well, Be kind
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.
There are so many reasons to visit Vermont we can’t list them all … but here are a few:
Reason #10 - Harvest Markets - Vermont has more farmers markets per capita than any other state
Reason #9 - World's Best Cheddar - Vermont has more cheese-makers per capita than any other state
Reason #8 - Good Beer - Vermont has more microbreweries per capita than any other state
Reason #7 - Views - Our views go on forever

Reason #5 - Reflective Moments
Reason #4 - Because it's "Moonlight in Vermont"
Reason #3 - Inspiring Steeples
Reason #2 - World-class Photo Opportunities - Vermont has more than 100 covered bridges

My Personal Message for March
Finally! We can see it. We can feel it, although brief. Warm sunshine and a bit of extra light outside as we settle in for the 6 o'clock news. March is upon us, which brings us -
International Women's Day - sponsored by the UN, its roots began in the late 1800's and grew from women's socialist movements and early women's trade union groups - March 8
Friday the 13th - historically known among the superstitious as a day of bad luck - many buildings and skyscrapers do not have a 13th floor, many people don't allow 13 people at a table, skippers would not go out to sea with 13 on-board. Yet, some optimists embrace this wacky day and don't cower in their rooms but rather head off to buy lottery tickets
"Beware of the Ides of March", a warning to Julius Caesar by a soothsayer, before he was stabbed by Brutus on March 15, 44 BC. Also the first day of spring in the Roman calendar
St. Patrick's Day is in honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isles - March 17
Spring Vernal Equinox brings equal proportions of 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime marking the first day of spring - March 19
International Earth Day was initiated to make earth inhabitants aware of their responsibility to care for the planet - always on the Vernal Equinox - March 19
Purim is a two day festive Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction - March 21
On March 25, Christians celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation which is when the Archangel Gabriel came to Mary of Nazareth and told her that nine months later she would bear the Son of God, Jesus Christ, on Christmas Day, December 25
So...there you have it for March. Hope you enjoy these special days of celebration and my bit of trivia...
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!
