Audio Postcard: 'We Never Had Any Locks On Our Front Door'

the front door of an inn

The front door of the Green Mountain Inn, in Stowe, never had a lock. One needed to be installed when the inn closed a couple weeks ago for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis in Vermont.

With the exception of a few years in the early 1900s, the Green Mountain Inn has been welcoming guests since 1833.

Even before Vermont ordered hotels and restaurants to close their doors to the public, the inn in the heart of Stowe Village decided to do just that. But Green Mountain Inn General Manager Ken Biedermann says first they had to go buy some locks, since the inn hadn’t been closed up in over a century.
