- This friendly comfortable Inn is a great antidote if you've overdosed on Laura Ashley wallpaper and mints on the lacy coverlets of antique beds. Longtime innkeepers Cleo & Fred Alter offer, instead, clean comfortable ungussied rooms with firm mattresses. Many bicyclists, hikers & world travelers frequent the inn. There are 11 guestrooms. The many-windowed inn dates from 1790, sits in the middle of the village in Vermont's apple country. Close to Larabee's Point, Fort Ticonderoga, & Middlebury.
