Our porch

Our front porch - where visitors are always welcome.  If you're an early riser you can catch some rays of eastern morning sun on the porch as the town wakes up with a great cup of our Viennese roast coffee.

The original, more humble dwelling was built in 1812, then later, our Italianate Revival home which you see as Vienna Restaurant and Historic Inn.  The Vienna mansion consists of a total of 26 rooms; Nine (9) of them are bathrooms and the Inn portion of the home offers Five (5) 2-room suites at the Inn. We are perched atop upper Main Street and on the National Register of Historic Places.  Vienna's Inn has a 3-story mansard roof with meandering hallways and ceilings high enough to touch the heavens! While dining in our restaurant - don't forget to look up and see the gorgeous meticulously restored friezes on the ceilings, each of the 2 rooms has a different style.

Outside, a visitor will find a gigantic 200 year old Copper Beech tree which towers above our enchanting outside patio equipped with an outside beehive fireplace. A perfect spot to have a late night libation with a friend or puff on a Cigar before retiring to bed if you're a morning person...how about breakfast in the morning sun?  An equally ancient Dwarf Japanese Maple aside our spacious front porch - great for people watching, sipping your Viennese coffee, or perhaps enjoying one of our authentic mouth- watering Viennese desserts!
