For nearly 250 years, the Brandon Inn has been welcoming guests to share in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere you'd expect in a Vermont town known for its beautiful and varied architecture, fascinating history, and an ever-thriving artistic community. A historic country inn in the village of Brandon Vermont, the country inn, established in 1786, is included on the National Register of Historic Places. The Inn is one of Vermont's oldest, continuously operating hospitality businesses.
The present Brandon Inn retains much of its elegance and charm. What began as a one-story tavern in 1786, the property was enlarged and became the Brandon House in 1822 and enlarged again so it could accommodate one hundred guests. In 1880, a devasting fire destroyed much of the building, however, the new Hotel Brandon rose from the ashes in 1892 constructed in the Dutch Colonial style of marble, brick, and wood you see today.
Nicknamed the "Art & Soul' Village of Vermont, Brandon is an ideal wedding destination situated in the Champlain Valley of central Vermont, near the foothills of the Green Mountains. Since Brandon has a lively art community, there are several art galleries to explore, live music venues to attend, art studios for perusal, and a non-profit artists guild that promotes art throughout the state. There is a vibrant and local culinary cuisine as well, featuring first-class dining options. Natural surroundings close to town include Lake Dunmore and the Neshobe River.
Opposite the village green and bandstand in the center of the village, the Brandon Inn is the ideal location to stay. Whether the Inn serves as your base camp for a bike or bus tour, a weekend getaway or family vacation, the Brandon Inn is a great destination. Its central location is near wonderful shops to explore, area restaurants to enjoy as well as a town walking tour, the Brandon Museum and Visitor Center, nearby Neshobe Golf Club, wonderful country roads for cycling, and the Brandon Gap Backcountry Recreation Area. It's why guests of the Inn come back year after year to experience Brandon.
