Back Inn Time

68 Fairfield Street , St Albans, VT 05478 USA (Show map)


Welcome to Back Inn Time! Our Victorian Manor home is completely restored to the elegance of bygone days, without the stuffiness one might expect. Incredible woodwork, architecture and craftsmanship are evident in every room, while modern amenities abound. We feature private baths, tall windows letting in plenty of natural light, super cozy beds with luxury linens and much more. After a restful night's sleep, follow your nose to the Garden-side cafe for freshly brewed coffee, teas, an assortment of fruits and juices, and a deliciously prepared full breakfast. Then spend your day in a town filled with many attractions. Visit the charming boutiques, restaurants, historic buildings, and the central park within walking distance. The Rail-Trail offers a scenic 25 mile bike tour along the Missisquoi River. We are an easy and scenic, continuously-moving 20 minute ride from Burlington and an hour from Montreal. Boston is also an easy four-hour, scenic drive. Back Inn Time is an ideal central location in a quaint little city minutes from Lake Champlain. The beautiful gardens are a haven. Sip a glass of wine in a peaceful, completely enclosed oasis of beauty with over 22 species of birds, sun and shade areas, four covered porches, and a large deck. Back Inn Time is truly a refuge; a wonderful place to recharge--on site massage available! Complimentary wifi and quiet make it easy for business travelers to stay with us. The inn is ideal for weddings or special occasions.
