John and Brenda Rodgers invite you to stay in one of our beautiful weekly rentals in 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 380 acres have been in the family since John’s Scottish ancestors first settled here in the early 1800’s. Because of Covid we are no longer operating the Inn as a bed-and-breakfast. We have been forced to transition to rentals only. We have four different options for rentals and are working on creating new options for folks who like to be a little closer to the land. We will be creating campsites, lean-to’s, and rustic cabins over the next few years to add to our options. Here’s a list of our current rental properties. We have a three bedroom house with one and a half baths and laundry, it is approximately a mile and a half away from the farm. This was our home for nearly 30 years before we took over the family farm in 2019. It is situated on 110 acres of beautiful forest land with spectacular views. This rental is available year around. We also have a camp on beautiful Shadow Lake. This camp is a few miles from the farm and has two docks, kayaks, rowboats, paddle boards and other water toys included. The shadow Lake Camp is a three season camp and is not in available between November and May. There is also a very private camp with a man-made pond here on the farm. We call it Tucked In because it is hidden away from the world. This camp is also seasonal and it is not available from November through May. We have turned part of the farmhouse into a two bedroom suite so that our guest have their own private suite with full kitchen and bathroom. The farmhouse suite is available all year around. All of our guests are always welcome here at the farm. We are constantly working to improve our rental options and building more trails and opportunities to commune with nature around our properties.

Any time of the year you’ll find plenty of peace and quiet and a friendly atmosphere around the farm. We have hundreds of acres of open field and beautiful forest with distant views of the green mountains from many different vantage points on the farm. We have trails through the forest and fields for hiking, snowshoeing, skiing and other activities. There are also endless miles of quiet gravel roads all around the farm and throughout the community that are excellent for biking, walking and running.

In the Middle of the Woods, Surrounded By Activities and Food

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 cheesemakers.
