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!
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).
Here’s a closer look at a couple of the former ticket booths:
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.
What a great destination restaurant for not only railroad enthusiasts, but history lovers and foodies alike!
