Take a step back
Imagine horse-drawn carriages and old country charm.
Smugglers Notch Inn of Jeffersonville, Vermont awaits you!
Our historic inn sits at the foot of Mount Mansfield
and the notorious Smuggler’s Notch. We are located on Route
108, officially recognized as one of two scenic highways in Vermont.
Originally built in 1790, our inn has been lovingly restored making
it a truly unique place to be in a quintessential Vermont town.
Your stay with us would not be complete without sampling the fare of
our restaurant at The Smugglers' Notch Inn. Located in the
downstairs dining room, enjoy a lovely dinner by our fireplace while
you gaze upon the breathtaking grounds of the inn. Our food is
casual elegance at its finest, prepared by world-class chefs at a
price you can afford. What could be better!
After your meal, take a walk downstairs to our newly
renovated Village Tavern of Jeffersonville. There you will find an
assortment of drinks and entertainment. Of course, there is always a chance that one of
our local bands may stop by for a set or two!
Dear Rooms Taxpayer:
Please refer to
Addendum 7 for the details of the Executive Order.
On March 24, 2020, the Governor issued an Executive Order
directing all Vermonters to stay at home or in their place of
residence, leaving only for essential reasons and further directing
all businesses and non-profit entities to cease operations unless
these entities provide services or functions deemed critical to
public health and safety
(“Stay Home/Stay Safe”).
For the purpose of clarifying Stay Home/Stay Safe as it relates
to the suspension of lodging operations, “lodging” shall include,
but not be limited to, hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, inns,
short term rentals, such as those made available through VRBO,
Homeaway, AirBnb and other services, parks for recreational vehicles
and campgrounds, all public and private camping facilities including
those managed by the Vermont Department of Parks and Recreation.
Lodging may be provided for the following purposes:
- Housing vulnerable populations (emergency shelter
for homeless individuals) as arranged through the state.
- Providing accommodations for health care workers, or
other workers deemed necessary to support public health, public
safety or critical infrastructure.
- Use of lodging properties being as quarantine
facilities as arranged by the state.
- Limited verifiable extenuating circumstances for the
care and safety of Vermonters.
On-line reservations shall be suspended and lodging
providers shall post a prominent notice on their web platforms which
advises potential guests that reservations for lodging in Vermont,
as allowed above, shall be accepted by phone only. Lodging
providers may permit existing guests to remain through the end of
their scheduled stay, however, may not allow extended stay or new
reservations, except for the purposes set forth above.
Except as otherwise set forth herein, this Addendum to the
Executive Order shall take effect upon signing and shall continue in
full force and effect until April 15, 2020, at which time the
Governor, in consultation with the Vermont Department of Health, the
Agency of Human Services and the Department of Public
Safety/Division of Emergency Management shall assess the emergency
and determine whether to amend or extend this Order.
The Vermont State Police and all county and municipal law
enforcement agencies shall monitor the compliance with this
Executive Order by lodging providers and notify the Office of the
Attorney General regarding potential non-compliance using a
reporting method prescribed by the Department of Public Safety. The
Attorney General shall take such steps as he deems necessary and
reasonable to ensure the compliance of lodging providers with this
Agency of Commerce and Community Development continues to assess
and respond to the community impacts of COVID-19 on Vermont
businesses and provide updates.
Thank you for your efforts to protect public health during this
challenging time. Current information about the response is
available on the
Health Department’s COVID-19 website.
Craig Bolio | Commissioner
Vermont Department of Taxes
