Located in downtown Middlebury the Inn offers access to great water just a short walk from the front door and a variety of streams within twenty minutes. Known for its great rooms and Vermont feel it’s a great place to settle in during your trip.
Across the street from one of our favorite rivers. Down the hill from some of the best brook trout waters in central Vermont. And, one of the best pubs around. A great day of fishing minutes from the Inn followed up with a few micro brews in the pub. These are just a couple of the reasons you might look into a stay at the Waybury Inn, East Middlebury.
The town of Brandon is one of Vermont’s up and coming communities. Brandon is home to a growing community of artists, Warren Kimbal among them. Located at the base of the Green Mountains western slope it is also home to some great fishing. The Neshobe river has been one of our favorites for years. At one time or another both Foster and I have lived on the river and called it our home water. There isn’t a river in Vermont that we know better than the Neshobe. The Lilac Inn is under 5 minutes from the Neshobe. Don’t forget a pint of the Black Stuff (Guiness not coffee) at KD’s Pub in town after a trip.
Both of these Inns have long been known as wedding destinations. During the summer there are weddings every weekend. Stream and Brook can handle groups up to ten anglers so if you and your wedding party are looking for something to do while in town, check us out.
