A lovely place to mingle with your fellow guests or gaze out at the heart of Vermont through floor-to-ceiling windows, the sunporch is the delightful “welcoming room” to the Churchill House Inn. Here you will make your first acquaintance with this lovely old structure: its flagstone floor and pleasant open-hearth woodstove greet you with a genuine “Welcome!” A 24-hour complimentary beverage bar contains a refrigerator with cold drinks as well as a kettle and a selection of cocoa and teas. The versatile sunporch is the setting for early morning coffee and post-dessert conversation.
Situated at the back of the house, the large parlor is both a pleasant conversation room and host to a 95-year old baby grand piano. The hardwood floor glows in filtered afternoon sunlight from the western windows. A sitting room in the traditional New England style.
Warmed by a charming open-hearth woodstove in the chillier months and cooled by a pleasant breeze from the nearby mountains in the summer, the library is a delightful place for quiet pastimes. Play a board game at the table, check your e-mail, peruse one of the dozens of volumes on the shelves, sit and gaze at the fire – the library holds big possibilities. Whatever it is you choose to do here, the library’s comfortable atmosphere will remind you to relax.
THE DINING ROOM
At the heart of the Inn, the cheerful dining room is is the setting for four-course Old World dinner by candlelight (by advance reservation) and country breakfasts with sunlight streaming in the east-facing windows. An eclectic selection of music will add to your dining pleasure. Please see our sample menus to catch a ‘taste’ of the Churchill House cuisine.
