This lovely guest house has its own garden entrance & is attached to a late 18th century cape located in an historic hamlet. The bright living room and 2 upstairs bedrooms have wide pine floors & Shaker-inspired furnishings. Welcome to Vermont.
Walk through the garden into a bright living space with a comfortable couch and inviting wood stove. Upstairs is a queen-size bed and a double bed tucked in an alcove off the main room. Quality crisp linens make up both beds. The bathroom has simple fixtures that include an antique sink and tub (no shower). All rooms have plaster walls, wide pine floors, giving the place a feeling of simplicity and calm. Guests come to rest and renew, read and write, walk and make pictures. The space was built in 2008 on the site of an old barn to match the original footprint and is attached to the original house where the hosts live year-round.
Guests have access to their private space and the southwest dooryard garden.
A continental breakfast (local and organic) may be left at your doorstep, served in the sitting room, or enjoyed at the garden table on pleasant mornings. Your hosts are knowledgeable of the area and can guide you to local points of interest and area events.
