The Strong House Inn has 14 unique guest rooms with private bathrooms and air conditioning. If you require a ground floor, it is important to let us know when you enroll. Please note that it may not be possible to change your room assignment at a later date. All other room requests are considered when possible but cannot be guaranteed. If you plan to come alone, and would like a roommate, let us know and we will try to match you with one. However, if a roommate cannot be found, a single occupancy rate will apply. 


Our meals are usually the same for everyone, but different each day. We can usually accommodate people with dietary restrictions only if we are given advance notice of your specific needs. 


No smoking policy except outside. 

Forgotten Items

Items left behind at the Inn can be sent to you by US mail at your request. The cost of shipping (rounded to the next whole dollar) + a $5 handling and packaging fee will be billed to your credit card. 

Alcoholic Beverages

Alcoholic beverages are regulated by the state Liquor Board. As a licensee, the Inn is responsible for the administration of these regulations. The Vermont State law prohibits the consumption of alcoholic beverages that are not purchased from the Inn in our common areas including the grounds and gardens.
