Josh Maciolek
Inn Keeper and Executive Chef

Chef Josh grew up in the mountain west. It was there that he found his calling and passion for food and the hospitality industry as a whole. His deep seeded belief, that gathering around a table laden with food and drink is essential to the well being of anyone, comes from the mountain communities he was raised in. Being from a wilderness area his hobbies have always been tied to the great outdoors which is where he serendipitously met the Allettos on a white water rafting trip through Hells Canyon. It was this fated excursion that brought him to the hills of Southern Vermont.
