Going Green

Listed below are a few of the ways that the Hemlock Inn is Going Green:

In 2020, Hemlock Inn installed an environmentally friendly roofing system developed by CeDur out of Denver, CO. The roofing was made out of 100% plastic with a lifespan of 70 years.

The weed killer we use in the garden is environmentally friendly and consists of salt, vinegar, and liquid detergent.

We have 3 recycling containers, located outside our ice room, which guests are encouraged to use for disposal of glass, plastic and aluminum cans.

All toilets have been replaced with flow toilets which help conserve water usage.

We have two 80 gallon rain barrels that we have used since 1998 to catch rain water for the hanging baskets and planters on the property.

We use an electric lawn mower for our lawn, which means no gas, resulting in fewer carbon emissions.

Our driveway gravel to prevent less water drainage going down the street and waste, most of the water is absorbed.

We have Tesla & Universal charging stations for our guests with electric vehicles.

The Hemlock Inn has been lovingly owned and operated by the Summers family since 1994.
