About the Estabrook House
The Estabrook House is a historic home in Vermont. An eclectic Victorian located in the heart of St Johnsbury's Main Street historic district built in 1896. The ornate gables, wraparound front porch and perfect setting overlooking Arnold Park's fountain first catch your eye.
As you look closer, you realize that the architect had a playful and well balanced eye for detail. The house is listed on the National Register of historic homes as well as noted in "Victorian Architecture: A Treasury of Lesser known examples".
Come inside and you will see the continuation of light, architecture, and flowing rooms that allow you to relax and feel at home. You will also see a family home that is anything but a museum: Comfortable, relaxed, and here to share and enjoy with company.
The Estabrook house is a family home that opened its doors as a small homestyle bed and breakfast in early 2008. Bringing the house back has been a labor of love. The house was certified for historic preservation by the National Park Service in 2007. The process of recovery and restoration has continued since 1998 when the owner was first introduced to St. Johnsbury and fell in love with the fanciful and inviting nature of the home, St. J, and the Northeast Kingdom.
The owner is a native of Southeastern Massachusetts who spent 30 years in a career that allowed for travel while living in Boston and the Midwest. Over the years the family house in Vermont has provided a welcoming escape for both family and friends. Now that welcome expands as we meet, visit with, and make new friends from around the world. We look forward to meeting you soon and visiting often!
In the spring, summer, and fall the front porch, with its three sitting areas, is always a favorite spot to gather with family and friends; to relax with a book; take a nap; enjoy morning coffee; or have dinner. In the winter it is also great with a warm blanket and a cup of hot chocolate!
