Authentic experience of Vermont since 1969

The Four Columns Inn was established in 1969 by French chef & owner René Chardain and his wife Pierrette. It was also the first farm-to-table restaurant: ever since its beginning, the Inn has been an important gastronomic destination in Vermont. The couple grew their own vegetables while pheasants, ducks and chickens wandered through the property.
