Green River Inn, Bed and Breakfast
Come relax; whether you are in a hammock by the
near the campfire, or under the starry skies.
In 1934 Mathias and
Frances Lorenz bought a farmhouse on the Green River in Sandgate,
and started raising chickens. They welcomed their friends who came
from the city to visit. The farm became the Evergreen Inn when the
farmhouse was enlarged, and six tiny evergreens were planted in
front. The Lorenz's daughter, Matilda, and her husband, Kenny
eventually began running the Inn. Their seasonal Inn was a haven for
many city people seeking a country retreat and for local artists who
felt inspired by the natural beauty of the area. Many artists would
place their easel on the grounds and create beautiful landscapes,
some of which still hang in the Inn today. Many of Matilda's
original guests continue to visit the Inn bringing their children
and grandchildren. Matilda, who lives locally, still drops by to say
"hi" or visits with old friends. Her natural charisma continues to
add old world charm to the Inn.
In 1997, Betsy and Jim Gunn purchased the Evergreen. They renovated
and redecorated the Inn, adding many special features and changing
the name to the Green River Inn. The sixteen individually decorated
guest rooms feature king and queen size beds, private baths and air
conditioning. The rooms have been beautifully decorated with quilts,
down comforters and waverly prints.
In 2004, the Inn was purchased by Bob and Carol Potozney, who now
invite guests to enjoy the charm of the past, the luxury of modern
amenities and the natural beauty of Sandgate. Bob and Carol invite
all who seek to relax, rejuvenate and explore the natural harmony of
the mountains, the soothing sounds of the river, the magnificent
star filled skies and the beautiful surrounding valley. Come enjoy
the completely refurbished Green River Inn and experience a touch of
the past in a true Vermont country setting.
