Rowell's Inn (1826) located in the village of Simonsville in Andover, Vermont is a transitional Federal style building built in 1826 by Edward L. Simons, the village's namesake. Its most prominent feature is a three-story Connecticut River Valley porch with a recessed arched opening fronted by a square baluster railing. Above this opening SIMONS VILLE is painted in black lettering. The Inn was originally a stagecoach stop and was variously used as a community meeting place, post office (1826-1950) and a general store. It was purchased in 1910 by Frederick Rowell who gave the building its current name. The building was updated with Queen Anne details, likely at this time, including colored glass double-leaf doors and two-over-two windows. Today it stands as a thriving family business after recently being saved for future generations to adore. After many updates and improvements, this property now features 6 Ensuite bedrooms, 2 receiving rooms, a cozy bar, a kitchen, and dining rooms that all of which could easily be configured into a stunning family home, outdoor activity clubhouse, and many more uses besides. Additionally, there is a one-bedroom apartment AND attached partially finished space for retail, office or studio! Close to Skiing, VAST trails and all that the green mountains have to offer this property holds tremendous potential whether you are looking for an ongoing business concern or a spacious and historic family home!
