Built as the summer home of a former state senator in the 1800s, Windsor Mansion Inn maintains the warmth and elegant of its former life as a private estate. Since the turn of the century, the Federal-style manor welcomed esteemed guests -- including Presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge -- to its historic hamlet of Vermont. Following a $1 million renovation to restore the property back to its former glory, the inn re-opened in June of 2016.
Over 14 acres of manicured gardens, slate paths link stone benches across the extensive lawn and brick patios with wrought iron bistro tables weave into the landscape around the inn, looking out at Lake Runnemede, the Cornish Hills and Mount Ascutney. Throughout the 20th century, the family’s chambers were lovingly converted into 17 guest rooms with private baths, central heating and free Wi-Fi. All accommodations are furnished with dark woods, four-poster beds and many have fireplaces.
From the inn, Woodstock is 14 miles and Dartmouth College is 19 miles. Those visiting in winter can access the ski slopes of Killington in about an hour, while the White and Green mountain ranges are less than two hours by car. Art lovers should be sure to make the trip over the Cornish-Windsor covered bridge to New Hampshire to visit the "stunning" home, studios and gardens of the great 19th century sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens (Travel + Leisure), located just a 10-minute drive from the inn.
