A Favorite Vermont Getaway

the legacy continues

The Sterling Ridge Story

In 1992, Scott and Susan Peterson purchased an 8 room bed and breakfast named Sterling Ridge Inn. The Petersons quickly got to work peppering the grounds with charming log cabins and quintessential amenities to build out their dream of owning a New England log cabin resort.

Locals Barb and George Salg, became friends with Susan and Scott Peterson through the purchase of their sugarwoods back in 2015. When the time came for the resort to be passed on in 2018, the Salgs showed interest and the Petersons felt it was the perfect fit!

Barb and George are excited to continue sharing the beauty and tranquility of Sterling Ridge Resort with their valued guests, welcoming returning guests and getting to know new visitors.
