Landgrove Vermont Inn for sale
It’s difficult to conceive of a location more scenic and serene than the town of Landgrove, Vermont. The area is dominated by forest, sprawling meadows, and spectacular homes that allude to the values (and wealth) of the town’s residents, who prefer the quiet existence their swathe of countryside provides above all others. The area is dutifully preserved which has led many artists to frequent the roadsides in attempts to capture Vermont’s landscapes and famed natural light. Landgrove is, in the simplest terms, perfectly peaceful.
The Landgrove Inn, a former dairy farm turned full-service country Inn, sits at the center of the town. The circa 1810 property, was at one point in its history a hot spot for major Ivy Leaguers and A-Listers including members of the Kennedy clan, former NYC Mayor John Lindsey, and others. Today, the Inn welcomes leisure travelers and is home to a thriving destination art workshop business that brings world-class instructors onsite throughout the year.
Unlike traditional leisure travel business, the workshops are typically booked one to two years in advance and fill up nearly as quickly. The foresight that is central to this model enables owners to focus on service and hospitality for their incoming (and often repeat) guests and control costs in a way that is unheard of in traditional models of hospitality. Everything from food costs to staffing considerations can be determined well before guests arrive. Other leisure travel business is thus a bonus, making the Landgrove Inn and its art workshops a very viable business model.
Given the Inn’s desirable location, leisure travelers are not difficult to capture within this market. Weston, Vermont (home to The Weston Playhouse, Weston Priory, and the original Vermont Country store) is only three miles from the Inn. Bromley Mountain and Magic Mountain are 6 and 7 miles from the Inn, respectively, and Stratton Mountain and Okemo Mountain are both under a 30 minute drive. The Inn is also in close proximity to Wild Wings and Viking cross country ski centers.
During the warmer months, activities include hiking, biking, swimming, sunning, fishing, and canoeing in the Inn’s stocked pond. There is no end to the just off-site activities available to guests in nearby Weston and Manchester, Vermont. Fall foliage draws countless travelers to the area to witness the mutability of nature in its brilliantly colored landscapes. During this time of year, craft and antique shows and festivals abound.
