New to Town but Rich in History

Seesaw's Lodge in Peru, Vermont is a refreshing new addition to the area's dining and lodging options.  Many might remember the name from the first ski lodge and then restaurant in Peru.  The new Owners transformed Seesaw's Lodge with a newly restored and very thoughtfully re-imagined renovation.  

We have enjoyed getting to know the cuisine which is fresh, local and elevates your palette with innovated food.  Menu items range from Homemade Soft pretzels served with a Cheddar beer cheese to Spiced Vermont Lamb Shank.  Of course, they also serve up a good classic burger.  View menu here.

On top of great dining options, they also have 16 rooms that are available for you stay.  Rustic lodges with modern amenities. Seven bedroom lodge and three deluxe cabins.  They have done a fantastic job in creating a welcoming gathering place for friends and families alike. 

But Don't take our word for it.  Check it out for yourself.

To make dinner reservations:  Call 802-824-5533  To book lodging visit Seesawslodge.com

      The Stratton Escape Room

      Conveniently located at the bottom of the Stratton Access Road is our very own latest craze The Escape Room.  Of course, our team had to try it and with only a couple minutes to spare spent a playful, intense and fun evening!  We will be back to try out the Botanist. With changes all the time this is great for family night, girls night, guys night, double date nights and just about any kind of night.
