Ira Allen House – Vermont Gay Bed & Breakfast

Ira Allen House - Vermont Gay Bed & Breakfast

The Ira Allen House is one of Vermont’s oldest inns and taverns, dating back to 1779. It is the historic home of Ethan and Ira Allen, colonial pioneers and fervent defenders of the Republic of Vermont during and after the Revolutionary War.

The Inn is situated on 10 acres of land abutting the Batten Kill River – one of the country’s premiere trout-fishing streams. We’re nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains, the perfect home base for hiking, skiing, canoeing, biking and other outdoor activities.

The town of Manchester with its fine dining and excellent outlet and boutique shopping is four miles to the north.

All of our rooms are 2-bedroom suites, each with its own bathroom – perfect for groups or families. Two of our guest rooms have private fireplaces. A full breakfast is served each morning, and our home-cooked dinner is available for a small charge with a day’s notice.

The beautiful lawn on the Batten Kill is a perfect spot for weddings, ceremonies, reunions, etc. The Innkeepers are delighted to help organize your event.

We aspire to be good local and global citizens. The Inn is heated primarily by wood pellets, a “green” and renewable resource. Much of our food comes from local farms.

The cozy, rustic inn/tavern is gay owned and operated, and welcomes all.
