Prouty House

Prouty Logo

The Prouty House is a tall 1911 Greek revival from Newport’s Big Lumber days that showcases in room-by- room craft the period’s trim finish work, elegant cabinetry, and grand stained glass.

All rooms share the ample turn-of-the-century staff’s kitchen.

The three bedrooms, their three private baths, and two studies are available individually or at a great value for the entire house.

Please see our rooms, rates, and rules below.

The Lakeview Suite

King-sized Bed

$ 150

The Lakeview’s bedroom is a calm abiding overlooking the South Bay of Lake Memphremagog. Year-round long sunsets pour through its windows.

The deep claw-foot bathtub of the Lakeview’s private bathroom is made for do-not-interrupt luxurious soaks.

The Prouty Suite

King-sized Bed

$ 125

Your yoga, chi gung, and meditation practices can definitely happen in the spacious Prouty Suite or just ‘ahhh’ drag those tired feet across the Persian rug on your way to see Mr. Sandman.

Neither post-marathon muscles, full days ‘on the mountain’, nor long country drives are a match for the Prouty Suite’s large steamy shower.

Garden Suite

Queen-sized Bed

$ 125

Its private study focuses the telecommute and welcomes a stiff nightcap at a proper oak desk.

The Garden suite has an old world charm with sumptuous bedding that rewards those who sleep in and early birds alike.

Wash, rinse, repeat; the private bath of the Garden Suite.

Entire House

Three bedrooms, three private baths, two studies, full kitchen, living and dining room

$ 400

For larger gatherings ~ maybe that winter ski vacation to Jay Peak with friends or a summer reunion for the family ~ the entire house is a great value with three bedrooms and their modernized, private full bathrooms, a turn-of-the-century staff’s kitchen, living and dining rooms and two studies. Free on-street parking.

The Prouty House is also available for special events and catering.
Two-night minimum stays for the whole house or its rooms.
Please let us know if you’re interested in our weekly or extended stay value.

The Neighborhood

The Prouty House is a short walk to many dining options and the shoreline of international Lake Memphremagog, ringed by the Green Mountains and ancient volcanic island formations. Start and finish your day with big-sky sunrises and sunsets, bird watching, or hand-holding.

The lakefront is also pet-friendly with pet designated rubbish bins and pick-up baggies (but carry your own just in case!)

And the lakefront is family-friendly with shaded picnic tables and benches at short intervals, lawns for chasing your toddlers, and a slope well known for rolling or sledding down.

Newport is also one of AARP’s Age-Friendly Cities, focusing especially on safe, walkable streets.

The Goodrich Public Library is open Monday through Saturday and speaks to generations of community generosity in the City of Newport and the Northeast Kingdom. Take your little ones to the library’s second floor to see the global wildlife collection of another era or maybe join the knitting or chess groups for an hour.

Prouty House is also a 20-minute drive to many exciting area attractions, including Jay Peak with its stunning ski slopes, three-season golf, and a year-round exhausting water park; the Old Stone House Museum; day touring in Quebec as well as the picturesque Northeast Kingdom countryside of farms, fairs, woodland hikes, lake recre- ation, locavore eats, distillery and brew merriment.

Getting Around

Newport is a pedestrian-friendly town; rentals for kayaks and bikes are available at several nearby locations.
