Nestled in the rural landscape of the Lakes Region of Rutland County, Poultney has a vibrant community of about 3,500 people across the town, village, and Lake St. Catherine area.

Poultney is a great place to escape and get away from it all. With its proximity to Lake St. Catherine State Park and the quaint nature of the town you can leave your worries behind and take in the old-time beauty of a historic Vermont town from the comfort of one of our bed and breakfasts.


There are several options for food both in Poultney and the surrounding towns for all occasions. From quaint mom and pop run diners to fancy cloth napkin restaurants there is something for everyone.


Poultney may be a quiet town in rural Vermont, but there is no shortage of activities to partake in. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy numerous outdoor activities by taking advantage of the Lake, Golf Course, and Rail Trail on their own, or join in with any of our numerous clubs.
