Our Village

A small town on a big mission

The picture of quintessential New England, Grafton Village is known for its classic beauty, stunning scenery, and rural culture.

A white steeple church. Signs for the local blacksmith shop. A covered bridge over a babbling brook. When it comes to places that belong on the back of a postcard, Grafton Village takes the cake.

The Grafton Inn is the cornerstone of the village, home to a small and vibrant community of just over 600 people. But don’t let our small size fool you; you won’t tire of things to do during your visit. With a host of art galleries, farms, historical sites, and acres of preserved land surrounding us, Grafton Village provides a gateway to authentic Vermont culture thank to the work of the Windham Foundation.

About the Windham Foundation

Do you adore Grafton Village because of the small-town, authentically Vermont feeling you experience when visiting? You can thank the Windham Foundation for that.

The Windham Foundation is dedicated to preserving and promoting the vitality of Vermont’s smaller, rural communities through philanthropic and educational programs, and its subsidiaries (like us) whose operations help contribute to these endeavors. So, you’d be right to say that every stay or dining experience you have at The Grafton Inn helps strengthen Vermont’s rural way of life.

The Foundation’s affiliated for-profit businesses, including the Grafton Inn, Grafton Trails, and the Grafton Village Cheese Company, all operate to further this mission directly, and the earned income assists in funding Foundation programs.
