This is the business opportunity for the lake lover! There are two homes, the main brick home and the guest apartment which are connected. The rent this year is over $25,000. The Captain Daniel Wilcox Tavern was built from 1798 to 1801 and provided elegant lodging for the ferry traveler for over a century. It was considered a very grand house in early Vermont. Built to impress with 8 and ½ foot ceilings on the first floor and 9 ½ foot ceilings on the second floor where the original ballroom was located. The home possesses a most unusual construction of a type rarely seen in brick houses anywhere. In true Yankee fashion Captain Wilcox also manufactured the bricks that were used in his historic home and tavern. Originally part of a 200 acre homestead, this home provided clean air, rest and relaxation along with boating and sporting activities to generations! The Federal style tavern/house has been completely restored by the current owners: including the kitchen with granite counters and a butler’s pantry, bathrooms, electric systems, foundation, and added insulation and lovingly restored the plaster walls. The guest apartment with its own entrance features two bedrooms and an open kitchen living area and its own deck. This apartment and home have a excellent rental history as Air B&B.
