Black is Back!

The sign is up, and the Lantern will be reopening soon.


Chef Matt Crowley returns to the kitchen, where he again will partner with local farmers to serve the freshest meats, cheeses, and produce. We offer a dining experience where couples can enjoy a special night out with filet and a bottle of wine while nearby outdoor enthusiasts unwind with mac and cheese after a day on the slopes or in the woods.

Matt will alter the menu and offer specials based on what is available locally, but our regular summer menu will be posted here soon. Please check back regularly as we prepare to reopen.


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 after we refurbish the rooms and suites. Please watch this space for our grand reopening date.


Many of the plans for reopening were hatched over glasses of homebrew, and so it is fitting that Black Lantern Brewing will be again offering its signature brews starting this fall. It may be hard to get our community owners into the dish pan, but it is even harder to keep them away from the brew kettle!

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. The reopening is just weeks away.
