John and Brenda Rodgers invite you to visit their bed and breakfast in beautiful West Glover, Vermont
Rodgers Country Inn is a year-round vacation spot at the end of a quiet country road in Vermont’s “Northeast Kingdom.” The same 350 acres have been in the family since John’s Scottish ancestors first settled here in the early 1800’s.
Any time of the year you’ll find plenty of peace and quiet and a friendly atmosphere. Each side of the house provides scenic views of woods and fields with mountains in the background. Large lawn area for sitting, playing games, and children using swing set. A quiet road for walking and biking, and fields and forest to explore are only steps away.
Large farmhouse kitchen and dining area is the setting for home-cooked meals served continental or family-style depending on the day, breakfast includes oatmeal, cereal, bagels, yogurt, toast, eggs, fruit, French toast or pancakes. Dinner is optional at an added cost subject to availability. Please let us know ahead of time if you have any dietary restrictions and we will do our best to make accommodations.
In the summer there are several beautiful lakes in the area. Shadow Lake is just down the road in Glover, Crystal Lake is in nearby Barton and Willoughby lake it’s just a little bit further away in Westmore. All three lakes are good for swimming, boating and fishing. There are also several great hiking trails and state parks nearby. If you are a biker we have great gravel grinding right out the door of the inn and all our rental properties. There are many miles of gravel roads that have very little traffic on them. If you want single track biking Kingdom Trails in East Burke is about 45 minutes away.
Autumn brings even more spectacular views starting in September the crisper air blue skies and vibrant colors make this season a favorite of Vermonters and visitors alike. Winter means cross country skiing around our property and at the nearby Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Snowmobiling on the vast trail system that runs through our property is also very popular. Downhill skiing at Burke Mountain, Jay Peak or Stowe are all under an hour away.
There are also many great tastes of Vermont nearby with Craftsbury General Store, the Blackbird Bistro, and Parker Pie for food. Just a few miles away is Hill Farmstead Brewery who has won best beer in the world several times, Newport has its own Kingdom Brewery, Morrisville has Lost Nation Brewery and Rock Art Brewery, and there are several other breweries fairly nearby. We are also close to Jasper Hill and Sweet Rowen Farm as well as other local cheese makers.
