According to the Arlington Inn's current website ( "The Arlington Inn, a Vermont village estate built in 1847, was the private home of Martin Chester Deming.  The home was purchased by the Bottom's in the 1920's and opened its doors as, The Colonial Inn, a Vermont summer hotel.  Today travelers will find four buildings on the National Historic Register offering 16 guest rooms, a full service restaurant and tavern."

The Arlington Inn was listed in cross country directories between 1977 ands 1981.  They offered skiing trails "through the woods of the National Forest," and trail use seemed limited to guests of the inn only.  Today, Arlington Inn operates on 3 acres of land and they advertise cross country skiing at nearby Hildene, Wild Wings, Prospect Mountain, and, if there is enough snow, the Arlington Rec Area.
