Property Overview

Price significantly reduced! Centered on the historic village green of Haverhill Corner, the Inn overlooks the pristine Upper Connecticut River Valley and Green Mountains of Vermont. Featured in Antiques Magazine, Haverhill Corner is the quintessential New England village, picture perfect and totally devoid of commercial activity. Rebuilt in 1850 on its original stone foundation, this 10,000 sq. ft. Greek Revival building is listed in the National Register for Historic Places, and served as a stagecoach inn throughout the 1800's. Imaginatively restored by a talented local artist, every room conveys the opulence of a bygone era. Operations have been limited to summer (3 months operation).
