The historic inn has only two guest rooms, comfortably furnished with double beds, down comforters,
fireplaces and cozy robes.  There is a sitting room upstairs and common rooms downstairs where you can relax,
chat, read, play a
game…make your self at home.  If you’re looking for a Central Vermont Bed & Breakfast for one
night or a week,
we hope you think of us.  We have very reasonable rates and can put together a package deal
tailored just for you.
The Place for Personal Service and really good food!
The Inn
The Restaurant
The Seedhouse Cafe has a unique character stemming from its original use as a seed-packaging house.  Don’t let
the casual atmosphere fool you, though.  The food is outstanding.  Subscribing to the notions of the Localvore
and Slow Food movements, we prepare all our dishes to order using primarily local ingredients.  For Central
Vermont Fine Dining, The Seedhouse Cafe is a treasure.  We believe in supporting the local economy, serving food
we love to eat.  If you call ahead with a special request (want to be sure local rack of lamb is on the menu this
weekend? Want a birthday cake? Or a blueberry pie?) we will have it ready for you.  A Vermont localvore restaurant
that won’t cost you a month’s salary.  Treat yourself and find out just how good food can be.
Catering, Event Hosting, Weddings
Area Attractions
Planning a party?  A wedding?  A business meeting?  Let Peter and Karen cater it for you.  We don’t have a set
catering menu, but rather will cook and serve whatever you want…from simple appetizers to sandwiches on
homemade breads to an elegant 7-course dinner.  We offer Upper Valley Catering services on- or off-premise and
can accommodate small or large groups.  We even have a wonderful venue for a beautiful Vermont wedding.  Call
us.  You will love our food, our service and our prices.
There is as much to do near by as you want to…or not.  We are within a short drive of excellent downhill and
cross country skiing, a world class golf course, beautiful canoe and kayaking spots, hiking, ballooning, biking,
the Green Mountain Horse Association, demonstration farms and cheesemakers, microbreweries, and museums of
all sorts.  The Woodstock Area is loaded with artisans and galleries, boutiques and country stores.  From our
Bed and Breakfast Central Vermont is at your doorstep.  We are just about 12 miles from the towns of
Woodstock, Ludlow, Windsor and Springfield, all of which have a different and interesting story to tell.  Come
see for yourself…or just sit by our brook and relax.
