“The final night of our family vacation coincided with Tropical Storm Irene. It was a difficult drive into Vermont only to find our originally booked hotel evacuated and closed due to the storm and flooding. Our family of 5 was stranded late in the day with most mountain roads closed. Locals recommended the Golden Stage Inn where we found shelter. Though the Inn was busy, our hosts offered a beautiful 2 room suite for our family. We found the Historic Inn to be updated and very well maintained. Our bedrooms and private bathroom were nicely appointed with a combination of antiques and modern amenities. Our hosts were incredible friendly, accommodating and hospitable throughout our stay. The best part was the dinner they made for us which included a freshly baked chocolate cake for our son’s 12th birthday. It turned out to be the highlight of our vacation!”

Room Tip: Each of our rooms in our bed and breakfast in Vermont is decorated differently, I recommend viewing them online at the Inn’s website prior to reserving a specific room.

History of the Building Built in 1788 as a stagecoach stop, the historic building maintains much of its vintage charm.  Reportedly a stop on the Underground Railroad, the property became a private residence for a century or so.   In the mid-1800s, the sprawling common rooms and additional bedrooms were added to the original building.  Regionally renowned Universalist minister Rev. Warren Skinner raised his family in this home.   His descendants who summered at the property include Broadway actor Otis Skinner and Otis’s daughter, actor and author Cornelia Otis Skinner.  Golden Stage Inn opened as a Bed and Breakfast in the mid 1960’s and has remained a B&B/Country Inn ever since.  The current owners, Mike and Julie-Lynn Wood, purchased the inn in December 2010.
Location In the heart of Okemo Valley, on the northern edge of Southeast Vermont, Proctorsville is a small village nestled in the town of Cavendish.  Just four miles from Okemo Mountain Resort and Vermont’s famously scenic Route 100, Golden Stage Inn is ideally located for tourists, whether they’re seeking outdoor recreation or utter relaxation.  The inn is situated on five acres that include an in-ground pool, a sheep, chickens, and the quintessential babbling brook.  The bridge over the creek provides access to Proctor-Piper State Forest.
Rooms Six standard rooms (double occupancy) and 2 two-room suites (accommodating four and five) are uniquely and tastefully decorated.   Every unit has a private bathroom. The suites’ bathrooms are newly renovated as of 2011. Guests also have use of the inn’s spacious fire-placed living room and dining rooms, with constant access to the Bottomless Cookie Jar.
Rates Standard Rooms (double occupancy) range from “Mud Season” Specials of $129/night to Holidayrates of $189/night.  Suites range from $209 to $299 respectively.
Breakfast and more A hearty multi-course breakfast is always included in every stay.  Typical breakfasts include fruit, yogurt and a hot entrée of the chef’s choice. Additional offerings include hot mulled cider on chilly afternoons, homemade soups and breads on winter weekends, a rich and moist “Saturday Night Chocolate Cake” and a constant replenishment of cookies in the Bottomless Cookie Jar.   Efforts are always made to serve local foods. Eggs come from our own chickens, the bacon is locally smoked by Singleton’s, and most seasonal produce comes from the inn’s CSA membership with a farm down the street.
Services & amenities Personalized hospitality is the foundation of the innkeepers’ mission. Mike and Julie pride themselves on sensing whether guests want privacy or significant chat time with the innkeepers, and they accommodate accordingly.   Every room is outfitted with a TV and/or DVD player, BeeKind bath amenities, and discounted lift tickets toOkemoMountain. All guests receive breakfast each morning, guiltless and limitless trips to the Bottomless Cookie Jar, constant coffee and teas, and frequent seasonal goodies such as hot spiced cider, homemade soups or Saturday Night Chocolate Cake.
Unique packaged vacations In addition to your typical “stay and ski packages,”  Golden Stage Inn offers vacation packages that include: harvesting honey from their own hives and making candles and mead from the byproducts, road race weekends and guided running route offerings, Fletcher Farm Arts and Crafts discounts, and Spring gardening weekends.
Unique things about this inn The inn is allegedly haunted.  Townspeople report having heard of two ghosts, one male and one female (who continually brushes her hair). Former innkeepers insist upon a strange energy in the upstairs when it’s been vacant for a while.  Current innkeepers, although dismissive of such claims, cannot deny a few strange happenings.
