Lake Champlain vistas can enhance your waterfront dining experience

If you don’t think of Vermont as a place for waterfront pleasures, you might be forgetting magnificent Lake Champlain, a natural resource and highway of history. Near this lake – or at the many smaller lakes and rivers that refresh the state – you can enjoy fine and casual dining along with sunset or sunrise over the water. Menus offer fresh, local ingredients and seasonal cuisine with contemporary American and Continental dishes from land and sea. The waterfront settings make it all more delicious and memorable. Stay nearby at a glorious lakeside resort!

Part of the pleasure of staying at this friendly lodging is dining along scenic Lake Willoughby. Savor classic cuisine and delicious pub fare served with Yankee hospitality and a hearty touch of New England in every bite. Gil's Bar & Grill is the perfect setting for the plaintive wail of the loon to provide your background music as the moonlight hits the water. The Inn’s talented chef prepares favorites including blue crab, beef burgundy, grilled salmon, and coq au vin and always uses using fresh and local ingredients to seal in the taste of the region. For dessert, it’s Vermont made maple ice cream. Come any season as the menu changes to reflect the best of Vermont food and drink.
