Good things are happening at the Ira Allen House
We have just spent two wonderful days at the Ira Allen House in Sunderland, VT. Partners Kevin, Michael and Tracey along with building consultant, Tim, became the new owners of the inn, which has been in existence for more than 200 years, at the end of last year, and have great plans for the property. The bedrooms and public spaces are very comfortable and furnished with tasteful antiques and memorabilia.

Kevin is an accomplished chef who provides a full breakfast each morning using locally sourced organic produce. One of the large first floor sitting rooms was once a tavern, and this is soon to be reopened, providing beer, wine and evening meals for guests and the general public. In the future Kevin hopes to introduce wine tasting evenings and cookery classes with invited chefs.

The property sits on 10 acres of woodlands with a meadow running down to a local river, suitable for canoeing and fishing. Manchester, with its designer outlet stores is just a few miles up the road.

If you’re looking for a quiet getaway in Vermont, the Ira Allen House would be a great choice. The inn is wonderful, but what makes it special are the warm welcoming personalities of its hosts.
