About the Vermont Bed & Breakfast
The Golden Stage Inn is a Vermont Bed & Breakfast that was initially a stagecoach inn, offering travelers bed and board before Vermont became a state in 1791. The original part of the building was built in 1788, but most of the sprawling common rooms and bedrooms were added in the late 1800s. With a history that includes being a stop on the Underground Railroad and later offering residence to a prominent Universalist minister and his stage-famous descendants, Golden Stage Inn invites you to become part of its still-evolving story.
The Innkeepers and their family
Michael and Julie have been together for about 20 years. Since their dating days, Michael and Julie dreamed of running a bed and breakfast in Vermont. Their first date was skiing at Okemo in Vermont, they got married at a Vermont country inn, and they took a vacation in Vermont every chance they could get. But traditional life responsibilities kept them from realizing their dream for many years. Michael successfully pursued a career as a CPA while Julie stayed home with the kids and earned her degree to teach high school English. After Michael’s first two children (Brigid and Mike) were grown and independent but before their two younger daughters (Sam and Sadie) entered high school, Mike and Julie saw their chance to make their move to Vermont. Two years of searching for just the right Vermont inn brought them to Golden Stage Inn in Proctorsville, Vermont. Although always missing their families and friends of Massachusetts, the entire Wood family is thrilled with their new Vermont life.
Living at the inn are Mike and Julie’s daughters, Samantha and Sadie. This picture is getting outdated …they just grow so fast! Samantha is now 16 years old and loves singing, acting and relaxing at home with the family. Sadie is 13 years old and loves acting, shopping (uh-oh!) and hiking.
Melissa is currently our sole staff at Golden Stage Inn. But this is okay, because she’ll do it all! As manager of housekeeping, she is also an interior painter, a kitchen assistant and a receptionist. A lifelong Cavendish resident, she knows the area and is willing to help guests plan their travels!
We look forward to helping you have a vacation to remember at our Vermont B&B.
