The two stately historic
buildings which are the home of The Inn at Montpelier were built in the early
1800's in Montpelier, Vermont. Both
buildings are classically federal in design and as is typical of New England architecture,
have been added to on several different occasions. The extravagant wraparound colonial
revival porch added to the yellow building is a prominent landmark in a row of gracious
townhouses built by the founders of Montpelier.
In creating The Inn at Montpelier great care has been given to retaining architectural
details - the Greek and colonial revival woodwork, the ten fireplaces, the gracious front
staircases, the glass fronted china cupboards, to name a few, have all been preserved. The
Inn is a part of Montpelier's national historic district and takes us back
to an era of gracious living.
Organized as a town in 1791 and made the
permanent Capitol of Vermont in 1805, Montpelier VT offers a variety of historic,
recreational, educational and cultural activities. Situated on the Winooski and North
Branch Rivers which wind through the City, Montpelier is the heart of Vermont. It is just
twenty-five miles from four major ski areas and the many lakes and streams nearby are
ideal for fishing and water sports. The surrounding Vermont skiing mountains offer hiking, cross country
skiing or scenic drives.
