- 2 nearby beautiful old non-denominational New England Churches, the Church on the Hill & the Old Parish Church.
The Inn can provide indoor dining for up to about 60 people and outdoor dining in a tented area for up to 175 people.

Often the rehearsal dinner menu is designed to be more casual to compliment and contrast with the reception.
Southern Vermont Wedding Reception
The Vermont Inn can provide indoor dining for about 60 people, and outdoor dining in a tented area for up to 175 people. Chef Craig Cornell will meet with the wedding couple and the menu will be developed to your specific requests, including price range and a sensitivity to vegan and vegetarian needs. The Inn also has a relationship with several pastry chefs, and a cake can be designed to your exact specifications.
