Inn on the Green

Inn on the Green, Middlebury VT

My fascination with Edward Hopper has extended to my choice of where to stay on a recent weekend getaway. This is the Inn on the Green, in Middlebury, Vermont, built in the early 1800's as a Federal-style house, with architectural detail added in the Victorian era.

The beautiful, blue house looks very much like the kind chosen by Edward Hopper as subjects for his paintings. This was even more apparent at night, when the windows glowed in the darkness with a warm light from within.

Rooms for Tourists, by Edward Hopper

The Inn on the Green didn't have the "unsettling" feeling of Rooms for Tourists but it did hide behind an imposing hedge.

Cycling around the charming town, we saw many other interesting Victorian homes, as well as the impressive campus of Middlebury College, with its granite buildings and sloping green lawns.
