What Makes a “Green” Hotel?

Posted by admin on July 8, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Hotels and Inns most likely bring two completely different images in your mind.  A hotel is probably a bit building in the cities and suburbs where people are bustling.  An inn is a tranquil place of just chilling out and enjoying the view of the countryside, am I right?  But the title of being a green hotel extends to certified eco-friendly lodging.

There are many when it comes to the benefits of being a green hotel.  For you it means better health and better hospitality because it isn’t just you but also the staff and management that are on the up-and-up. It is no surprise that having health issues can cause unpleasant moods, but being better for the environment also can mean being cleaner for all.  Because we consciously focus on wasting less and preventing pollution, you don’t have to worry about all the extra germs floating around on food and surfaces– like a non-green hotel.

In order to reach for the stars in the world of hospitality, as a Green Hotel in the Green Mountain State, we requested an audit of our facility and environmental practices shortly after it was purchased another time in 2005. Based on that audit, we invested over $75,000 in improvements to this historic structure to make numerous changes, which exceeded the Green Mountain State’s requirements for attaining the Green Hotel certification, which we have maintained continually since 2006.  We were the first to get certified in Vermont, and are proud to be leaders in responsible hospitality and paving the way for sustainable living for future generations.
