This is your chance to buy an historic Vermont Inn, and continue the business,or make it into your family home or multi family getaway! Built in 1828 by Daniel Chipman,a United States Representative from Vermont, founder and professor of law at Middlebury College, the original farmhouse began operating as an inn and public dining room in 1974. Just 7 miles from Middlebury, the property is nestled in the Green Mountains, with excellent hiking/biking/skiing options all around you!The inn currently features 9 guest rooms with baths, and a two room owner's quarters with bath. In the center of the residence is the taproom- with a handsome bar and casual seating area in front of the original hearth. The perfect spot to curl up at the end of the day with a good book near the fire! The spacious dining room also has a fireplace to enhance the ambiance on cool days and nights. The commercial kitchen is complete with a walk in style refrigerator, and is where meals are prepared for up to 25 visitors at one time. The east wing of the structure was fully renovated in 2015- with new insulation/wiring/flooring, etc. and a standing seam roof was just added. A sitting room in this section is another great spot to unwind. A post and beam barn was added to provide storage options, and an automatic generator tucked behind adds piece of mind. Lovingly maintained by the current owner, it is time for this inn to enter a new chapter. Come to Vermont and make this property your new home or business!
