What's In a Kiss?


The Wilburton Inn celebrates love everyday. We offer a free night on Valentine's Day and a new anniversary special with complimentary champagne, chocolates, and room upgrade. More importantly, we're the only inn with a Museum and a Sculpture Trail that is dedicated to exploring the history of love.

Innkeeper, psychiatrist and curator, Dr. Albert Levis's Museum of the Creative Process explores artist Henry Gorski's phase of exuberant kisses. The Sculptural Trail in the History of Love retraces the shifting dynamics between the genders through Mexican, Greek, Indian, and Biblical cultures. The Pharos sculpture below depicts the power contrast between massive men and tiny women in Abrahamic religions.

This modern marble sculpture, The Kiss, and the red metal sculpture, Tilting at Windmills, conclude the exhibit by celebrating equality between the genders which is evidenced by their similar size. This is our idea of living happily ever after.

To you and all the ones you love, we wish you a very happy Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Kisses from the Wilburton Inn

"If there is a more romantic or peaceful setting in the world, I have yet to discover it.” That's what Rand McNally's Best Bed & Breakfast Guide wrote about the Wilburton Inn, and as family innkeepers, it gives us great joy to see our guests basking in the romantic spirit of our historic estate.
For 28 years, it has been a pleasure to see guests of every age, every season swept up in love.

The spirit of love extends between men, women, parents, children, and of course, guests and our four legged puppy, Jetson.

Innkeeper and psychiatrist Dr. Albert Levis has been fascinated by the symbol of love as expressed through a kiss. His new Museum of the Creative Process in Manchester Village has an entire room devoted to kisses by expressionist Henry Gorski.

The Museum of the Creative Process sculptural trail on the Wilburton estate is devoted to the journey between men and women through civilizations to find happiness and live happily ever after. And after traveling through the ancient world of Greek sphinxes, Mesopotamian temptresses, Aztec warriors, Indian Goddesses, and Biblical saints and virgins, the Museum of the Creative Process sculpture trail concludes with this Vermont marble sculpture called "The Kiss."

Finally there's equality and equity between the genders. So here is a kiss to you and your family on Valentine's Day and every day with love from the Levis family innkeepers.
