A unique opportunity to become the next steward of one of Bennington's most relevant historic properties. Built in 1774 by Joseph Safford for his son, Samuel Safford, and known as the oldest standing home in the east village, this notable property currently operates as a quintessential Vermont Inn but could easily be returned to a single family home, used as a therapeutic facility or provide distinguished office space. 4 fully renovated guest bedrooms w/private baths, each thoughtfully designed and outfitted for guest comfort while preserving historic detail and charm. The additional 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3 kitchens, include 2 main level kitchens, a 2nd floor owner apartment w/private entry/kitchen/living/dining, as well as a private inn keeper suite and the potential to convert more bedrooms to inn, office or common space. Recent updates include, Buderus multi zone boiler, oil tank, plumbing, electric and driveway, along with ongoing exterior maintenance. Offered fully furnished with business essentials. Ideally located, walk-able to downtown Bennington but also close proximity to Williamstown, Manchester and nearby ski towns means fun, food and culture in every direction for yourself or guests! 1 hour from Albany Airport, 3 hours to NYC and Boston. This prestigious property has been lovingly maintained by only 4 previous owners, it's your turn to become part of Vermont history!
