Inn at Montpelier Sells

After being for sale for some time, The Inn at Montpelier changed hands on September 30, according to owner Michael Drake. He and his wife also operate Zachary’s Pizza in Waterbury, he said.

The 19-room inn, located at 147 Main Street in Montpelier, consists of the main yellow building and the white Federal-style house next door. The inn has been operating since 1988. An apartment building behind the inn is also part of the property.

The new owners are busy getting up to speed and following the state’s pandemic rules and regulations for lodging establishments, but Drake said they look forward to being involved in and connected to the Montpelier community.
