History of The

Elias Carter Inn

For the past 30 years the historic 200-year home has welcomed B&B guests. New innkeepers Lori Myers and Wayne Phaneuf have recently renovated the property which has five bedrooms, ALL with private baths!
The B&B is named for former resident and famed early 19th Centurty architect Elias Carter. It was also home to Israel Trask who helped draft the Louisiana Purchase. We are just minutes from Old Sturbridge Village, and close to antique stores and many fine restaurants. We take pride in using organically grown farm fresh ingredients in our daily breakfasts.
