Elegance and hospitality fit for Presidents
The Windsor Mansion Inn, originally known as Juniper Hill Farm, sits high on its namesake hill within the town limits of the historic hamlet of Windsor, Vermont. The Inn’s distinguished history dates back to the late 1800s and started with the Evarts family. Built by Maxwell Evarts, this grand mansion served as the summer home of his family until 1941 when it was transformed into an inn. Since 1902, this gracious colonial revival home has welcomed countless distinguished guests, including Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge and Woodrow Wilson.
The storied mansion is perched on 14 acres of the private estate and has operated as an Inn since 1941. Purchased in 2015 by the owners of the Sumner Mansion Inn in nearby Hartland, Vermont, the Windsor Mansion Inn has undergone a million dollar restoration project to return the historic property back to its original glory. The property has had all new electric, plumbing, heating and air conditioning installed. All our lodging rooms have been completely renovated and totally refurnished. All have brand new central heat and air conditioning for maximum guest comfort regardless of the season. We offer 17 guest rooms including standard, deluxe, and presidential bedrooms all with their own private baths. The public space has been completely restored and includes a large entry Great Room, Private Dining Room and soon a tavern which will be open to lodging guests and the public. Although large in scale the properties restorations have truly helped to embody its original design to be warm, inviting, and true to all things Vermont.
The Windsor Mansion Inn’s comfortable patio areas and extensive lawns with gardens are the perfect setting for a relaxing get away or venue for a memorable event. The mansion features three locations for events, including an expansive deck and patio, perfect for both open air or tented events. The breathtaking views of the Connecticut River Valley and architectural facades are a perfect backdrop for memorable events and photos to last a lifetime. Our historical mansion is one of the few venues in the area that has the ability to host ceremonies, cocktail parties, receptions, and lodging all at one beautiful location.
This “Gilded Age Summer Cottage” transformed in to a comfortable Inn is centrally located near the famed Cornish Windsor Bridge, the longest antique covered bridge in North America, as well as the Saint-Gaudens National Park and Historic Site. Windsor Mansion looks over the expansive views of Lake Runnemede, the Cornish Hills, and Mount Ascutney. A mere 3 miles miles away is a newly developed Artisan Park, which consists of Harpoon Brewery, Silo Distillery, Simon Pearce, and more. We are only 19 miles to Dartmouth College and 14 miles to Woodstock, Vermont. Windsor Mansion Inn is centrally located to all the best of the Upper Valley and New England.
The newly restored Mansion and its ownership are pleased to carry on the famed gentile hospitality and elegant entertaining that was once desired by patrons throughout its history. Today guests can experience the home as it was originally intended both inside our grand spaces and outside over our expansive newly manicured grounds.
