Farm-to-Table Dining

The Black Lantern Inn is a proud member of the Vermont Fresh Network, and walk the walk in terms of sourcing local food. Our Chef and kitchen team work hard to have an ongoing relationship sourcing local products and working with farmers to ensure the best possible quality product for our customers. Our beef and pork come from our neighbors Mark and Wendy Brouillette of Breezy Acres Farm. They also provide eggs we serve to our inn guests for breakfast. Our lamb comes from just up the road at ‘Chet’ and Kate Parson’s farm. Our chicken is raised naturally in Vermont. We feature a range of Vermont cheeses on the menu, sourcing from Boucher Family Farm in Franklin for our bleu cheese dressing, Jasper Hill in Greensboro, Cabot Farms and from Vermont Creamery for our mascarpone for our desserts. Our pasta comes from Tricia at Vermont Fresh Pasta Co., while produce and vegetables in season come from across the region.

Behind our bar, we offer a rotating selection of beer from Vermont breweries including 14th Star, Fiddlehead, Zero Gravity, Goodwater, Switchback, Queen City, and 1st Republic, ciders from Citizen Cider, Vermont Cider Company, and Shacksbury Cider, and wine from Shelburne Vineyard. Even our coffee is roasted just across town by Big Jay Roasting Company!

On Saturdays throughout the Summer into Fall you can visit the Montgomery Farmer’s Market across the street from 9-1 pm, and you may visit any one of our local farmers while in town to see for yourself where our food comes from. We look forward to seeing you!

Our menu changes seasonally, and we offer a variety of daily specials based on what is available locally. Our summer menu is available here, and we will try to keep our facebook page up to date with the daily specials.

The dining room is open Wednesdays through Sundays. We serve from 5pm – 9pm.


Black Lantern’s nine rooms in the main inn and five 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.
