Here’s another retirement dream… own a vintage railroad station-turned-restaurant in the quaint town of Windsor, Vermont!

“Windsor Station” is a popular dinner restaurant housed in a classical train depot building and it is currently for sale. Listed at $399,000, this 1901 beauty has been lovingly preserved and is filled with period railroad and travel memorabilia.

Below is an historic photo:

In case you are thinking that the owners rescued an abandoned former railroad depot, think again – this place is actually still an active Amtrak stop!

Whoot whoot!

The restaurant has become known for its fine food, craft beers, and live entertainment.

This place is a delight, not only in the culinary sense, but in the historic ambiance sense as well.

No detail has been overlooked, including this period time piece (below) so that travelers/diners can keep track of the train schedule.

Let’s have a look inside…

The listing has these great panorama shots that give us a sense of the layout, albeit a little skewed.

The original depot floor plan – in the tradition of Victorian sensibilities – had separate waiting rooms for men (now the barroom) and for women (now the main dining room).

Originally built by the Central Vermont Railway, the train station building was restored and converted to a restaurant in the late 1970’s.

The list price includes not only the property, but all fixtures and furnishings.
