The Victorian Lady is a beautifully renovated property without a single detail overlooked!

Amazing wrap- around porch with wonderful views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont beyond. The property has been a very successful B & B for over 20 years. You can choose to continue to run it as such or use it as your own personal residence. Lovely hardwood floor run throughout the house. Anagylpta wallcoverings, which were found in Victorian homes of the 1800s, add beauty and elegance.

The main floor consists of an elegant parlor complete with a large fireplace containing gas logs and an ornately hand-carved mantel. A spacious living room and an enormous dining room with space to seat numerous family and friends or guests of the B & B. Doors from the dining room lead into a spacious kitchen with a smaller table for more intimate meals. Located off the kitchen is a lovely pantry/laundry room and also another full bathroom just across the hall. Doors from the kitchen lead out to the porch and yard beyond. The outside space is complete with lovely landscaped gardens and trees. It’s truly a peaceful area!
Behind the house is a replica of a Victorian Carriage House which offers a two car garage and guest quarters above. Attractive black wrought iron fencing runs along the front of the property and separates the house from the sidewalk and adds that special touch of period elegance!
