Just like the pineapple, Made INN Vermont is a rare gem. Our all-inclusive, award winning bed and breakfast located in the heart of downtown Burlington offers unmatched hospitality, gorgeous views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks and unforgettable stays.

The history of how the pineapple came to represent hospitality is long and winding, much like the creation of the INN. The pineapple was first introduced to Europeans in the 1400s when Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean. He and his sailors explored the area and came across the strange fruit, enjoyed it’s pulpy interior and wrote of its curious nature. Centuries later, the high demand and short supply of the pineapple made it extremely valuable and though it did not travel well on the slow journey across the sea, candied and dried pineapples made their way to the Americas and were traded and sold in confectionery shops. As pineapples became the ‘must-have’ topper to a fruit display, it became tradition for hostesses to proudly display the fruit as a symbol of both their rank and ingenuity in procurement. The pineapple quickly became a symbol of hospitality, a sign that a hostess would spare no expense for her guests.

Here at Made INN Vermont we continue the tradition by placing a pineapple on our cafe table year-round. As these delicious and juicy fruits ripen we offer them to guests as fresh chunks of sunshine and joy for their morning yogurt or as a sweet topper to our Huevos Rancheros as pineapple salsa. Now, we can’t give away all the secrets to our gourmet breakfast recipe, but we thought as a sign of our hospitality we’d share our pineapple salsa recipe with you!
