  • Introduction

    Welcome to Nutmeg Country Inn in Wilmington, VT

    Nutmeg Country Inn, Wilmington, Vermont

    Geo Hizny and Doug Williams, previous owners of The Rambouillet Hotel in New Hope PA, decided to return to Vermont, and chose the fantastic Mt Snow valley town of Wilmington VT. Why? Well, because it is more Vermont here than anywhere. And there is no place like Vermont, life like it was, when life was simple and carefree.

    You'll be stunned by the transformation! We have uncovered some wonderful old wood beams in the carriage house lounge, and will be having FREE wine tastings by the fire place daily at 5-6pm. We also uncovered some beautiful random width hardwood floors in the front desk area and old house parlor

    The Nutmeg Country Inn is centrally located in the four season mountain Village of Wilmington in The Mount Snow Valley and adjacent to the Green Mountain National Forest of Southern Vermont.
