  • Introduction

    The Northfield Inn front

    This historic Vermont Bed & Breakfast, The Northfield Vermont Inn, is a beautifully restored Victorian mansion nestled high in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains, just minutes from Montpelier, Barre, Sugarbush and Stowe Ski Resort.

    Framed by scenic mountains, our Montpelier Luxury Inn overlooks the village of Northfield, Norwich University, and the Sugarbush Mountain Peaks.

    The Northfield Inn has been lovingly restored to its charming and romantic Victorian elegance and tastefully decorated with antiques, oriental rugs, beds of brass, beautiful carved wood and luxurious European down bedding.

    Come home to distinctive accommodations, gourmet breakfasts, wide porches for rocking, quiet/scenic country roads and an unhurried existence. Experience Victorian elegance, comfort and congenial hospitality!

    This lovely Centenarian Mansion, once occupied by a Royal Princess, has been a meeting place for the elite and famous from around the world. Now, as The Northfield Inn, it continues in that tradition. Delicate accessories and interesting collections enhance the International ambiance and reflect the fond appreciation of its guests for the warm hospitality.
