Item Description

Comfort, pure and simple. That’s what is offered at the Snapdragon Inn in beautiful Windsor, Vermont. 

A grand and historic brick home that was the former residence of legendary Scribner's editor Maxwell Perkins, the Snapdragon Inn celebrates the beauty and bounty that Vermont and the Upper Valley have to offer. Maxwell Perkins edited the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, and Ernest Hemingway, and included in this lot is a hardback edition of the Hemingway classic Old Man and The Sea, which is dedicated to Perkins. 

The inn has nine private bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. The rooms--five queen size, four king size--are decorated in a simple and fresh style, and are outfitted for comfort and relaxation. Room features include custom bedding, air conditioning, wireless internet, and HD TV. Bathrooms are tile and marble with radiant heat floors, and feature L’Occitane products.

Add natural, pure, revitalization to your stay in Vermont at the Snapdragon Spa. Choose from a wide selection of individualized treatments in the comfort, warmth, and elegance of the Inn

The Inn's Maxwell Perkins Library contains titles related to the history of the home, the works of its most famous residents, and books relating to the area. The library also contains a selection of board games, and is a comfortable place to read or work, especially in the winter with a fire in the wood stove.

The property includes the back porch for relaxing, a lawn and gardens, tree swing, and paths for exploring.  Visit the inn's website for more information:
