A Quiet Vermont Bed and Breakfast

Our home in Vermont is a big old Vermont farmhouse and the land that it sits on has been in the family since the town was founded. This historic 1840's Vermont Farmhouse is surrounded by pastures and hundreds of acres of woods, trails and even a waterfall.

The house features hardwood and wide plank floors and incredible views of Vermont's Green Mountains. Vermont's law school in South Royalton is just 2 miles down the road. The short walk or bike ride along Back River Road into South Royalton follows the White River where you can enjoy tubing, fishing and swimming holes.

The Martha Washington Inn began life as an illustrious home indeed! It was built in 1832 as a private residence for General Francis Preston and Sarah Buchanan Preston and their nine children.

Much of the architectural integrity of this historic landmark has been meticulously preserved for over a century and a half. The original brick residence still comprises the central structure of The Martha Washington Inn and the original living room of the Preston family is now the main lobby of the inn. In fact, the grand stairway and parlors are today much as they were in the 19th century. The rare and elaborate Dutch-baroque grandfather clock, measuring over nine feet tall, was shipped from England by one of the Preston daughters, Mrs. Floyd, and now resides in the East Parlor.
