It is difficult to find an idyllic New England town as active as Brattleboro, Vermont. Its numerous theaters, galleries, restaurants and annual cultural events keep the town vibrant, while views of the Connecticut River and Mount Wantastiquet serve as reminders of the natural landscape that surrounds the town. This Superlative Southern Vermont Bed and Breakfast is successful for the same reasons.
The Inn was built circa 1931 in a French Baronial style and is surrounded by lush gardens, including a large cut leaf Japanese maple tree. The Inn has six guestrooms; three rooms and one grand suite are located in the Main Inn, while there are two rooms in the Inn’s Carriage House. Public areas include a spacious common room with wood burning fireplace, a 3-tap pub with fireplace, sunroom with garden views, conservatory with original windows and tin ceilings and an outdoor terrace overlooking the gardens. Located on one acre, with direct access to walking trails, water and a wildlife sanctuary, the grounds are a veritable oasis.
Brattleboro is located in the Southeastern corner of the Green Mountain state, under two hours from Albany, NY, 2 and ¼ hours from Boston, MA, 2 and ½ hours from Burlington, VT, and 3 hours from Portland, ME. The Inn is a short walk to the center of Brattleboro and its myriad gallery walks, arts festivals and diverse dining options.
Arts festivals proliferate in the area and include the renowned Marlboro Music Festival, Yellow Barn Music School and Festival, the Brattleboro Literary Festival and the Brattleboro Film Festival. (Brattleboro is also home to the Vermont Jazz Center, an internationally recognized institution for music education and performance that hosts some of the biggest names in Jazz.)
For two days in February, the Harris Hill Ski Jump (Vermont’s only 90 meter ski jump) is the talk of town, attracting world renowned jumpers and offering live music, fresh food and local beer. In summer, the annual Strolling of the Heifers draws thousands to the area to watch as local farmers stroll their prize heifers up Main Street.
We chose Brattleboro, Vermont, as our home for these reasons and many more. This Southern Vermont Bed and Breakfast is a truly exceptional property as a business (with a cash flow around $100,000.00!) and as a physical plant.
