Butternut Lane Bed and Breakfast
Carol and George Loveland look forward to welcoming you to their home as guests at the Butternut Lane Bed and Breakfast on the outskirts of the historic village of Norwich, Vermont.
Our spacious Federalist style yellow brick home rests on the bluff overlooking the Connecticut River which forms the boundary between Vermont and New Hampshire. The property consists of 38 acres which are used for forestry, organic produce, and growing flowers, all of which add to the appeal (and our guests' appetites) of the Butternut Lane BnB.
Built in 1821 by George and John Loveland, this Upper Valley landmark has been in the family from construction to the present — six generations! The main house has seen little change in the nearly 200 years of family ownership. The original horse hair plaster walls and ceilings were saved where feasable throughout the house. All the soft pine random width floors are original. The brick exterior was made with bricks manufactured on site.
The only major change took place in the mid 1860s when a frame house from the village, 2.7 miles away, was towed to its current location and attached to the brick house. That allowed the Lovelands of that day to remove the kitchen fireplace and put a “modern” kitchen in the newly attached ell.
