Four Season Activities

Lake Salem Inn - ImageSpring & Summer

You are steps away from our boat dock. We have a
canoe or kayak for guests to use. Swimming in our lake is very refreshing!

Relax on the back deck while sipping a cool beverage, and enjoying a light snack.



For the fisherman, Lake Salem is one of the cleanest lakes in Vermont. Our lake has pickerel, walleye, fresh water salmon, bass, lake winter, the ice fishing is fabulous. Ask us about license requirements.
Hiking is best in the Northeast Kingdom. Lake Willoughby State Forest has over 12 miles of hiking trails. We are also within easy driving distance to the Long Trail, part of the Appalachian Trail system. Take a picnic lunch and spend the day on the  mountain!

Or, if you just want to renew your spirit from the stress of everyday living, simply relax in our sunken living room where beautiful music plays quietly in the background.

You don't want to miss our glorious fall season in all it's splendor! Our rooms book far in advance, so book early!


Mount Pisgah at Lake Willoughby is near the Quebec border and is one of New Englandís best ice climbing venues. The big west-facing cliff, towering above the frozen lake, offers the largest concentration of hard routes in the Northeast from single pitch to committing multi-pitch climbs.

In the winter enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Ski and snow shoe rentals are available at the Vermont Leadership Center. Great down-hill skiing and snow boarding is available at nearby Jay Peak and Burke Mountain.
