The Gables Inn & Restaurant, Stowe

Randy Stern and his wife Annette Monachelli purchased the Gables Inn from Sol and Lynn Baumrind through Gary Gosselin and the Hearthside Group in September 1999.  They carried on the fine tradition of comfortable rooms, hearty breakfasts, and Stowe Hospitality for many years.  When Annette passed away in 2013, Randy continued on until 2018 when the inn was sold. Gary assisted Randy during the sales process and our Group has been honored and delighted to play a small part in the history of the Inn. The Gables will always be known for the innkeeper’s love of the property,  their dedication to the hospitality business and serving all of their guests.

Jackson House Inn, Woodstock

The Jackson House Inn has sold to James Steward of Blue Hill Properties.  This was a very special match made between buyer and sellers without the inn ever making its way to the real estate marketplace.  Brokerage is at times about strong relationships, and this transaction was a perfect example.  Kathy and Rick Terwelp, innkeepers for the past nine years at the Jackson House, built a stellar reputation and an outstanding business on the premise that perfection will bring guests back.  Their over the top curated breakfasts, sumptuous accommodations, personal attention to every detail, and spectacular landscaped grounds leave guests feeling pampered, as though they have been somewhere extraordinary.  For this they have received many accolades, a four diamond rating among them.  James Steward’s background in fine art will bring an element of design and programming to the inn  that will enhance and deepen the inn’s reputation.

The Middlebury Diner

A landmark eatery in the town of Middlebury, The Diner,  has been purchased by its neighbor, the Town Hall Theater.  The Non-profit has some exciting plans for expansion that will evolve over time as the Theater completes a significant capital campaign.  The Theater purchased the Diner from owners Caetlin Harwood and Carl Roesch.  Many in town were sad to see this historic restaurant close its doors, but there is no doubt that the Theater will make great use of the space!
