Hugging Bear Inn

Stay in one of six guest rooms blending 19th century charm and modern touches, each with a private bath. Rooms accommodate couples, singles, families and children. And you will find a Teddy Bear in every bed! Included in your room rate is a hearty country breakfast, including Pure Vermont Maple Syrup. Seconds? Certainly!

We welcome children of all ages to this lovely Victorian Inn. This place is enchanting and magical. You get friends for life here!

The Hugging Bear bed & breakfast and teddy bear shop – a Victorian residence circa 1825, is an enchanting b’n’b in the Vermont tradition. Located in Chester, Vermont, the Hugging Bear features a wonderful shop with the finest selection of Teddy Bears in the Northeast.

Country Inns and Teddy Bears are both symbols of warmth, closeness and family ties. They belong together. You’re likely to find anything from aardvarks to zebras and a lot in between. We have a large selection of Steiff collectibles, artist bears and Muffy Vanderbear, puppets (Folkmanis and others), Gund, Boyd’s, Merry thought, Hermann, Douglas, jewelry, ceramic collectibles, books and endless other bearaphernalia.

Inn History – In 1825, a unique Italian Colonnade home was built and situated across form the village green in Chester, Vermont. It saw many years, many seasons and went through many changes. It had different owners, was a schoolhouse for a period and went through the Victorian era, which changed this home into a beautiful Queen Anne style Victorian home by adding a tower, bow windows and a big wrap around porch. Circa 1905, a Carriage House was constructed on the property. One of the finest examples of carriage barns in New England, it shares the Colonial Revival style – notably the gambrel form of roof – with several contemporary Chester village buildings. The projecting loft gable and the pyramidal-capped cupola distinguish the finely executed barn.

In 1982, this Victorian home went through another transformation when it was renovated to accommodate guests with a private bathroom in every bedroom. The Hugging Bear Inn was born and continued to welcome families, children, and everyone from all over the world that love Vermont, enjoy a Bed and Breakfast Inn and, most of all, have a passion for Teddy Bears. Teddy Bears, you ask? Yes, the theme of the Hugging Bear Inn revolves around teddy bears, family, fun, collecting and enjoying the lovely countryside of Vermont.

Not long after the Inn was established, the Hugging Bear Shoppe began. It’s a gift shop that quickly grew from one to four extensive rooms of the finest selection of teddy bears in the Northeast, with over 10,000 teddy bears and similar products available for purchase.
