The Shoreham Inn Opens New Guest SuitesBy Sue Hoxie
Recycled Barn Offers Three Loft-Style Suites, One is Fully ADA Compliant
Shoreham, Vermont – September 17, 2009 – The Addison County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that its member, The Shoreham Inn, has opened three new loft-style suites, one of which is fully ADA compliant. Owned by Dominic and Molly Francis, all ten rooms in the Inn have been updated and improved since they purchased the property in 2003.
Originally The Shoreham Inn had nine rooms in the main house and a small cottage in back. The Francises have overseen upgrades to the Inn so that all rooms are now equipped with ensuite bathrooms. The addition of several bathrooms reduced the number of guest rooms in the main house to seven.
Working with Jeremiah Parker Restoration, the Francises devised a plan to remove the existing cottage and rebuild an old sheep barn that had been dismantled in nearby Salisbury. The barn was reconstructed behind the Inn to house three loft-style suites, bringing the total number of guest accommodations back to ten. All of the new suites are two floors with separate living room and bedroom spaces. Each room features a small kitchenette and an outside patio. One of the units is constructed with the bedroom downstairs, as well as many other details, so that it is fully ADA compliant. Rates start at $195 for the new suites.
In addition to offering lodging, The Shoreham Inn also features a pub which serves local food, beer and wine in a style the Francises call “contemporary comfort food”.
The Shoreham Inn is located at 51 Inn Road in Shoreham. The phone number is 802-897-5081. The Shoreham Inn serves dinner Thursday through Monday from 5 to 9pm (Sundays 5 to 8pm). They are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
