North Hero House receives Innkeeper of the Year Award
Vermont’s tourism industry professionals gathered last week in Killington for the 33rd Annual Vermont Tourism Summit, formerly known as the Vermont Travel Industry Conference. The 2016 Borden E. Avery Innkeeper of the Year Award was presented to Walter Blasberg of the North Hero House. The Borden E. Avery Innkeeper of the Year Award is designed specifically for individuals who continue to demonstrate excellence in the operation and management of a Vermont bed & breakfast, inn or hotel. Walter has dedicated himself over the past 20 years to inn-keeping and improving the guests’ lodging and dining experiences. A UVM graduate, Mr. Blasberg returned to Vermont after a long career in investment management and purchased the historic North Hero House in 1997. “I feel very honored that the North Hero House was chosen for the Vermont Innkeeper of the Year Award. I am extremely thankful to the staff at the inn for their hard work and dedication to the North Hero House. They are the ones that made receiving this award possible,” said Blasberg regarding the award.
