Live the dream in the magical Northeast Kingdom, Island Pond, Vermont! Essex House and Tavern, a turnkey business, has 11 guest rooms, a “barn chic” tavern with an outdoor seating pavilion, and a spacious function room that’s ready for you… Essex House and Tavern is ideally situated on one acre in the heart of Island Pond on the Clyde River steps from the pristine lake. The 1866-era building has been renovated to create an atmosphere that reflects its history. The original wood supports are the foundation of a modernized, antique aesthetic. Each of the 11 guest rooms have been updated with new amenities while retaining the building’s quaint, historic style. The revitalized tavern features a vintage industrial vibe with seating for 48. There is a separate dining room that seats 65 and is perfect for private events. The 36’x20’ pavilion, newly built in 2020, is heated for winter use, and in warmer months additional seating is conveniently located just outside to serve more customers. This solid business has a well-established customer base in a town that is truly a 4-season destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The VAST trail flows directly into the large, paved parking lot, and the town roads are open to ATVs and UTVs. Brighton State Park, set on the shores of Spectacle Pond and Island Pond attracts visitors for boating, fishing, and swimming. Hiking trails in the area are plentiful.
