Black Lantern’s six rooms in the main inn and four suites in the Burdette House make it the perfect size for wedding groups, family reunions, and bike tour groups.

We are close to Jay Peak, and offer a peaceful alternative to staying on the mountain. Spend your ski week or romantic weekend with us, and enjoy one of the best views of historic Hazen’s Notch.

We look forward to welcoming you to our special part of Vermont. Please check our availability here.

About Us

The Black Lantern Inn has been welcoming guests in Montgomery since 1803. When it closed abruptly in 2015, a group of “locals” began hatching a plan to open the doors again. The community came together to purchase, and now to reopen, the inn.

The Lantern is located in the heart of Montgomery Village.
