It isn’t often that you have a chance to see the magnificence of these beautiful black Friesian horses. Robert LaBrie is world renowned for his talent for breeding and training his Friesians of Majesty.

Bike Rentals and Tours
Some of the best biking in the country is right here. Country lanes and back roads will take you through the Vermont countryside, unique in its unspoiled beauty.
Take a short drive to Putney and find West Hill Bikes; a great place to rent or start your bike tour through the local area. Races and mountain tours are scheduled throughout the warmer months, so you may choose to participate with others, or go it alone. If you bring your own bike, we have suggestions for routes from the Inn, using ‘the roads less traveled’ for mountain bikes, or the paved routes for street bikes. Four Columns Guests receive a 10% discount on bike rentals.
