Cozy elegance is experienced at this National Historic Register 1860s B&B. Located just north of town we provide relaxation on a property displaying a variety of perennial gardens. Architecture is that of the classic New England Federal style. Decor consists of a distinctive combination of fine Victorian antiques and contemporarily-crafted pieces reflecting both refinement and comfort. All guest rooms boast private bath, AC, fine pressed linens, featherbeds, down comforters, hairdryers, and plush robes. Breakfast and tea time are known for having sumptuous — but healthy — offerings.
Summer guests enjoy relaxing on the porch, the gazebo, the glider swing, or one of the several patios. Winter guests can snowshoe on our back hill, enjoy a roaring fire in the library, or relax in the reading alcove. In the fall you’ll be leaf peeping, but our porch is 3 seasons so put your feet up and select from our array of refreshments while viewing our multi-cored trees.
Brandon’s downtown — with its eateries, art galleries, unique shops, and old-fashioned ice cream parlor — are but a stroll away. WiFi and HDTV with DVD player and Nexflix connection are provided. We are perfectly located for a vacation: The Stephen A. Douglas Museum and town Tourist Center are but a few doors down. Hiking/XC skiing/snowshoeing are just a ride up to The Green Mountain National Forest. Swimming on beautiful Lake Dunmore is even a shorter jaunt. Bike rentals can be delivered to you to enjoy a variety of cycling routes. Ride to a mile-away covered bridge or take a bit longer trip through the Lake Champlain Valley area. The college town of Middlebury is 18 miles north of us.
Discounts available for learning vacations in the arts and cooking, full-house rentals, and summer multi-day stays. Children and families are welcomed.
