Visit the Shops in Town (we have three) and, after you do the rounds in Montgomery, ask for our map of antique shops in the area – our map lists close to a hundred shops – most within 30 to 40 minutes of our front door.
Our favorite, the “Pond store,” is just 5 miles down the road in East Berkshire on Rte. 118 (open by appointment only) and just a few doors down from our Inn is the fabulous Trout River Traders General Store which has several antiques dealers on the premises, as well as several art galleries selling the works of some of our local artists and photographers.
The antiques shops in town shops are:
Trout River Traders Antiques Gallery
A series of small vendors located both upstairs and downstairs at the Trout River Traders at the end of the road. The tables in back sit where the old grain elevator ran. Make sure to stop by and say hi to Mark, and feel free to ask him about some of his favorite things to do in the area!!
266 Main Street
Terry’s Antiques is located in the Boucher home – a converted horse barn built in the mid-1880s. If you stop by, Terry just may let you look around; the house features a large country kitchen, library and solarium. It was originally the barn used by C.T. Hall – the “Lumber Baron of Vermont” – his former home is now the Inn on Trout River.
The Pond Store
286 Montgomery Rd.
East Berkshire, VT 05447
Tel: 802-933-2719 (By Appointment Only)
Run by the Wedding Planners “The Stables at Pigeon Hill Farm”, The Pond Store store is located in old 1780’s General Store – just before the junction of routes 118 and 105 on the left hand side going west on route 118... Not only great antiques but wonderful gardens and an incredible place for a wedding if you are so inclined!
Map of Antique Shops around the Mt. Mansfield Area,
Northern Vermont & Lake Champlain
The map is compiled and distributed as a commercial brochure, so inclusion on the listing requires that shops pay an annual fee. Although the fee is modest, many shops choose not to be included so, unfortunately the map is representative of only a portion of many antique shops which are scattered across northern and middle Vermont. It does list approximately 100 shops within driving distance of the Phineas Swann – even if some of the shops are a bit distant – the drive is half the fun! The map, does, however, clearly indicate the areas where there are concentrations of antique stores, since by the law of averages, the more shops in the area, the more likely that some or all of them will place their name and location on the map.
