The Craftsbury Inn was built circa 1850 by Amasa Scott, a prominent Craftsbury merchant, for his wife and daughter. It is located in the picturesque village of Craftsbury, in the heart of Vermont's "Northeast Kingdom". Today the Greek revival mansion is a true village inn, providing lodging in ten beautifully appointed guest rooms, French inspired cuisine in the dining room, and your favorite libations in the wood paneled pub. During the summer, enjoy afternoon tea on the lawn.
The Craftsbury Inn is an original. From the "bull's-eye granite" foundation and porch steps to the embossed tin ceilings and random width wood flooring, it has maintained its charm and elegance for the last 150 years. The inn has ten guest rooms, six with private bath and four sharing two bathrooms. Each room is individually decorated, and provides modern day comforts, while maintaining a nineteenth century ambiance.
Craftsbury was founded in 1789 by Colonel Ebenezer Crafts. The Boston Globe has termed Craftsbury "Vermont's most remarkable hill town," and the New York Times states " the Northeast Kingdom is what Vermont used to be." The town is composed of three clustered villages; Craftsbury, East Craftsbury , and Craftsbury Common. Together these villages offer our visitors one of the most picturesque and charming examples of rural life left in America today.
In addition to the scenic beauty, the area abounds with outdoors activities year round. One may swim or rent a canoe and paddle one of the nearby rivers or lakes. Fly fish the Black River, which runs through the inn's property. Go hiking, biking or birding. Winter offers the finest and most consistent cross-country skiing in the East. Ski out the inn's back door and connect to the groomed trail systems of both the Craftsbury Outdoor Center and the Highland Lodge. Downhill skiing is available at nearby Stowe, Jay Peak, or Burke.
