One of our illustrious Innkeepers, Aglaia Stalb who owns and operates The Northfield Inn, shared with us a little bit of the history of Vermonth’s geodetic center. Her Inn is framed by scenic mountains, overlooking the village of Northfield, Norwich University, and the Sugarbush Mountain Peaks.
The three cities of Northfield, Barre and the capital of Vermont, Montpelier are not only destinations but are also of great historic significance. Norwich University, where officers of the Civil War were trained, is the oldest private military college in our country and is located in Northfield.
World leaders, both military and civilian have stayed with Aglaia at The Northfield Inn when visiting Norwich University as well as numerous authors, news media, major corporate executives, notable political leaders and royalty from abroad.
Also when visiting here, do not miss the beautiful slopes of Sugarbush Ski Lodge located in Vermont’s quintessential Mad River Valley. Sugarbush is a modern four-season resort with six distinct peaks of unleashed potential, two uncrowded mountain areas, 2,000 acres of backcountry in the Slide Brook Basin, 111 trails for skiing and snowboarding, modern venues for weddings and receptions, state of the art meeting facilities for any size business conference, 18 miles of downhill mountain biking, 18-holes of golf, 2 disc golf courses, slopeside real estate opportunities and much more.
