The Bob Newhart Connection
For nearly a decade Bob Newhart entertained audiences with his hit TV show, Newhart. Bob and his wife decide to leave their hectic life in New York City and buy a beautiful Inn in Vermont. To our delight, Hollywood came knocking. They thought the Waybury Inn captured the essence of the Vermont experience and wanted to depict us as Bob’s own Startford Inn!
For years, members of the cast and crew have dropped by to see how their beloved Inn is doing. Bob even sent our Inn’s owner, Tracey, some words of encouragement. The photo reads “Tracey, Take care of my Inn!”. Bob can rest assured that she has done just that.
Be sure to stop in and check out some props from the Newhart show: the Minute Man Café sign and the Stratford Inn sign are all located inside the Inn! For a good laugh, ask Tracey about some of the cooky things that happened during the filming of the show.
