Celebrating the romance of the Gilded age in Southern Vermont

The Graves Estate

Built as the private residence of Louis A. Graves, and designed by William C. Bull, a well known architect of the time who was responsible for many of the stately Victorian structures in the Shires of Vermont​

We think of the South Shire as a grand residence on a small intimate scale. We hope to deliver the same breadth of services and efficacy expected in large luxury hotels yet in a more humane, personalized setting.

Ours is a guest experience built on the long-lost style of service, and our ambition is that guests will check out with enduring memories and the desire to return

Ten-foot ceilings, the mahogany-paneled library with ornately carved fireplace, leaded glass pocket door and bookcases, and the raised plaster moldings of the Dining Room make the South Shire Inn a showpiece in Southern Vermont Victorian Era.
