Downtown Burlington’s Church St. Marketplace

The Sinclair Inn Bed & Breakfast is located on VT Route 15 in the rural town of Jericho and is centrally located to several destination spots in northern Vermont – a 30 minute drive (southwest) to Lake Champlain and shops & restaurants in downtown Burlington, a 45 minute drive (east) to the resort village of Stowe, and a 25 minute drive (northeast) to year-round outdoor activities at Smugglers’ Notch  and Mount Mansfield.  Also, the Canadian border is just a one hour drive north, plus another hours’ drive to Montreal, so the Sinclair Inn is an ideal place for a layover on your way up north.
