The OLD STAGECOACH INN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of the old Stagecoach Inn.

Today, we know the stagecoach inn as a historic inn in Waterbury, Vermont; however, it has seen its days as a tavern, a stagecoach stop, and the private residence of Margaret Spencer.

A wealthy millionaire constructed the building in 1826. In 1890, the inn changed her appearance from a New England Federal style to a Victorian style, and today the Victorian style is still prevalent with a full restoration in 1987. Not only was it restored with a Victorian feel but also with country elegance.

The Stagecoach Inn has three stories. The downstairs has a large parlor with all original antiques. Throughout the entire inn, you will find rare antiques from the same era such as the organ, tapestries, easy chairs, sofas, and oriental carpets. The second and third floors of the inn are the guest rooms. Eight rooms in which guests can stay are furnished with modern TV, cable, kitchen alcove and a private bath.

As stated above, the only true private resident to live at the inn was Margaret Spencer. She was a wealthy socialite that lived in the home from the 1920’s until her death in 1947. She passed away in her bedroom at the age of 98. Her bedroom is now room 2 in the inn.

Margaret loved her home so much; guests believe that she has decided to stay here even after death. Many guests that stay in room 2 have seen her appear wearing a white shawl.

No one really seems to mind her presence and she is for sure not leaving. Enjoy your stay but if you do not wish to have an unseen guest in your room at night, do not stay in room 2.
