News from Rutland, VT

The latest news from our Hostel in Rutland, VT. We're always seeking to expand our ability to host more hikers and provide a hospitable, restful place to stay.


We ahave added more bunk space and capacity to our hostel. We have been building more bunks, installed a partition wall between the men & women's dormitory, renovated a bathroom, and installed more showers. If you have any skills in the areas of carpentry or plumbing, or even willing to lend a hand painting, we invite you to stay on an extra day or two to help us out. Thanks for helping us make this the best stop for hikers in Vermont! We annually host hundreds of hikers, so please join us in our efforts.

Travelers take note, the people here are interesting, welcoming, and open to questions, and the food is delicious and wholesome. We were told that we should look up other community locations if we were ever in need of a place to stay.

Before dinner at this hostel they always have a celebration service with testimonies, music and dancing. This is a great group of people who serve the hiker community wholeheartedly!

My experience: They are incredibly accommodating individuals. Jeremiah picked us up and drove us almost an hour to their location in Lancaster, NH. I received a clean mattress... as well as a welcome basket. These two days were much needed, and I feel well-rested and ready to hike onward.
