Long time nudists, owners Amy & Lindy Abbott dreamed of owning their own Clothing Optional Inn Resort in New England. In 2002 they found the perfect property in Southern Vermont just minutes from the famous clothing optional Ledges on the Harriman Reservoir. Abbott’s Glen is nestled in the foothills of the Vermont Green Mountains, just north of the Berkshires in Massachusetts. They took the 55-acre property, a former weekender residence, and transformed it into an 8-room clothing optional inn and resort. The resort is complete with hot tub, Finnish wood-fired sauna, restaurant, nudist campground 2 options for swimming. The resort also has a recreation space known as Club Sugar Shack. for dancing and a game of billiards.
Amy began her food career in Boston, MA though most of her career was centered in the Philadelphia, PA area. There she managed several B&B’s, giving her a taste of the hospitality business. She moved to Vermont in 1999 with a desire to have a life more connected to nature and to pursue her passions for cooking and gardening.
Lindy, a 40 year resident of Vermont, has made his living as a sales representative within New England. Having lived on Lake Champlain in Burlington and had a taste of inn-keeping himself, he was looking to someday find a partner and a property to share his dream.
In 2002 their visions of the future came together. Amy & Lindy were married at their new property. Abbott’s Glen Clothing Optional Inn Resort opened here in 2004. The property continues to be a labor of love, with new building additions springing up every year. The diverse land offers sweeping meadow views; a pond; orchard; vegetable, herb, and perennial gardens. Guests enjoy nature trails for hiking or Cross Country Skiing or snow shoeing running alongside 1,500 feet of river frontage. We continue to enjoy meeting new guests every year, along with many guests that return year after year to enjoy the property and meet new friends. Many couples also enjoy local attractions like Mount Snow Ski Area in Dover Vermont or Berkshire East just south of us in Massachusetts both within 25 minutes of Abbott’s Glen Clothing Optional Inn Resort.
