Welcome To The Arlington Inn

The Arlington Inn, a Vermont village estate built in 1847, was the private home of Martin Chester Deming.

Guest Testimonials
"This was a first time visit to the Inn and it was a very memorable experience. The room & accommodations were comfortable & cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace. Our meals here outstanding!! Fantastic flavoring & portions were plentiful. The pork dish is one I will remember for some time. Delicious. We were here for the sleigh ride package & our ride was also a special memory. The horses were beautiful and the scenery breathtaking. If we decide to return to the area, we will definitely return to the inn. Thank you for everything! "
