Welcome Hikers! Cyclists! Skiers! and other Adventurers!
The Gathering Inn is a vital, interesting place, offering affordable private and family rooms, as well as longer-term room rentals. We provide comfortable beds in a quiet, safe and friendly environment.
Nestled in the mountains of the beautiful Green Mountain National Forest in Hancock, Vermont, we're just 6 miles from the Long Trail, 8 miles from the Middlebury Snow Bowl, 17 miles from Yestermorrow Design/Build School, 20 miles from Sugarbush and 25 miles from Killington ski centers.
We offer free transportation from/to Middlebury Gap for Long Trail hikers and skiers; please call ahead to arrange pickup. You may use our fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals, or eat out at one of several local eateries.
Please join us as a guest or boarder!
Life is never boring at the Gathering Inn with antics provided by our animal friends - Little Bug the Hen and her flock of 40 chickens and 5 ducks, Mouse and his cadre of cats. Monsieur Moose even meandered by one summer day. And there are many other outdoor activities in our beautiful Green Mountain state of Vermont. Check out some of the Area Attractions.
