Wilmington Inn and Tavern

Rachel Pilcher sold the Wilmington Inn and Tavern yesterday to Charlie and Megan Foster.  The inn has nine guest rooms in two buildings and is located in the quaint town of Wilmington, Vt.  Charlie and Megan come to the inn with years of hospitality experience, most recently with Hyatt hotels in the Boston area.  They look forward to adding weddings and events to their B&B business.

Cornwall Orchards Bed and Breakfast

After a New England-wide search for the perfect Bed and Breakfast, Miles Peterle and Lise Anderson settled on a historic former apple orchard known as the Cornwall Orchards B&B.  They called Wendy and asked her to represent them through their purchase, and she happily agreed.  The inn had been closed a little over one year when its former owners retired.  Lise and Miles look forward to recreating its stellar reputation amid the college crowd and tourists who frequent Middlebury.  The inn has a beautiful setting with lovely views from the breakfast room and the guest rooms.   Miles and Lise plan to reopen the inn late summer.  We wish them the best as they go about setting up this new business venture.

Southern Vermont Gem

We are proud to have represented Yoshio and Diane Endo in the recent sale of their beautiful property, the Inn at Ormsby Hill.  We had the distinct pleasure of being involved in the transaction when they purchased the exquisite ten room Bed and Breakfast and so it seems fitting that we were able to help them when it came time to sell.  The inn is a spectacular architectural specimen, a property with a long and interesting history.  For the past several years, it has served with distinction as one of Vermont’s four diamond rated lodging establishments.  Jack and Mary Ann Orlando are the proud new owners of the inn.  They have dreamed of owning this type of property for many years, and they look forward to continued stewardship of their beautiful  new home.

Grunberg Haus, Waterbury, Vermont

Jeff and Linda Conner did a fabulous job running the Grunberg Haus for over fifteen years.  They truly enjoyed their interactions with guests, and they were very successful innkeepers for this reason.  They developed a loyal following who enjoyed their bed and breakfast rooms and seasonal, pet-friendly cabins.  It was a big decision to let go, however, life traveling the country in an RV beckoned.  There were many interested parties in this unique property, but in the end, Duane Beck and his wife, Leah, avid snow- boarders, skate- boarders, toy designers, and car collectors came to visit the inn and instantly fell in love.  The rest is history, and a very smooth transition ensued.

Profile Deluxe Motel

We were very excited when we received the telephone call from Lisa and Jzm Covey who owned the 13 room Profile Deluxe Motel located on almost 5 acres of land in Twin Mountain, New Hampshire. Upon visiting with them, we found a charming, very well maintained property overlooking the White Mountains and an indescribable view of Mount Washington right from the owner’s home living room window ! We knew it was a very special property with a long history of serving guests “above the notch”. We were also fortunate to have Jodi and Mike Petrosus from Massachusetts inquire about the property and we found that their love of the outdoors and hiking in the Whites matched their desire to own a motel property in New Hampshire. Needless to say, we all worked together to put a deal together and we are happy to report that the reviews under Jodi and Mike’s ownership continue to be glowing. Congratulations to all!

115 Orchard Lane, Addison VT 05491

In July, it was a great pleasure to close on the sale of a spectacular 10.11-acre lot on the shores of Lake Champlain near my home at Basin Harbor.  This property offered the luxury of space amidst  incredible Lake and Mountain views.  The sunsets are incredible!  Lakeshore property of  this size being offered for sale on Lake Champlain is a rarity these days.

Heart of the village inn

Heart of the Village Inn, Shelburne

Since purchasing the Heart of the Village Inn from Shona and Chris Lothrop, Rose and Anatoly Polyokov have taken the inn by storm, renovating the guest rooms, adding a very active social media presence, and bringing the inn to life with their high energy and humor.   Located in the heart of Shelburne Village, the 9 room Victorian Bed and Breakfast  enjoys great proximity to Burlington and its year round attractions.
