Buckmaster Inn Bed and Breakfast

20 Lottery Road , Shrewsbury, VT 05738 USA (Show map)


We have a beautiful country Inn, listed on the National Register of Historic Homes. The Buckmaster Inn was built in 1801 and is located in Shrewsbury, VT. Shrewsbury is a picturesque, quiet community, wonderful for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing or simply relaxing. We have four guest rooms with private baths. The decor is New England country flare and comfortable for resting after a long day in the fresh air. We have fireside breakfast dining or breakfast served on a very large screened-in porch during the warmer months. We're a very friendly and hospitable Inn and when you are our guests, we make you feel as though you are at your own home away from home. We are centrally located on the back side of Killington Mountain between Rutland and Ludlow, Vermont. We can be reached by major highways and roads which will bring you to our splendid location in our quaint community. We'd love to have you as our guests, so please give us a call at (802) 492-3720 or e-mail us.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our travels around New England, and it was bettered by none. so much so we wish we had stayed much longer. The hosts Elizabeth and Richard made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through the door, til we sadly waved goodbye. The inn dates back to 1801 and has been styled in keeping with a homely, relaxing way making you feel comfortable from the outset. There are 4 rooms to choose from, each of which are decorated in an individual way, but all are recommended. Breakfast was a special time, served by candlelight, with individual requests never a problem. If you want a place for a truly relaxing break away from it all, no TV, mobiles (but the internet - just in case!) then this is the place for you. Be prepared to be sucked in and desperate to return!
