catamount bed & BREAKFAST
The home is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The property acquired in 1873 by Smith Wright, Jim’s great-grandfather, is now in the sixth generation of ownership. This was once an active farm of approximately 500 acres with pastoral land with sweeping views of Mt. Mansfield and Camel’s Hump to the east and Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks to the west. Jim and Lucy, your hosts, have transformed the property into the state’s foremost outdoor recreation facility with 35 kilometers of professionally designed trails for hiking, biking, trail running, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The recreation facility is now managed by Catamount Outdoor Family Center, a not-for-profit, with the mission of promoting family and community wellbeing through activity and education in the natural environment. The homestead is the home of Catamount Bed and Breakfast with three guest rooms, sunroom, parlor with baby grand piano and a formal dining room.
Complimentary trail use is available during your stay at the Bed and Breakfast. Bike, snowshoe and cross-country ski rentals are available as well. The Burlington International Airport and downtown Burlington with it’s fine dining, culture and shopping is minutes away but worlds away if you so choose.
