A charming village--beautiful Bellows Falls--is close to lakes, hiking, skiing, state parks, tourist attractions and across the river from New Hampshire.
The house is elegantly furnished yet homey and comfortable. With high ceilings, a wonderful kitchen, comfortable beds and many amenities, you will find classic, welcoming Vermont. My place works well for singles, couples, business travelers, families (with kids) and big groups. Pets are welcome.
This old house has many unique and beautiful features. Lovely wallpaper, a long, deep bathtub, walnut wainscoting, a tiled bathroom-shower room-in-one, antique Oriental carpets. Yet it's got a relaxed and lived-in feel. Not precious or to tiptoe around, it's comfortable and welcoming.
Five separate bedrooms are available, 2 with queen beds, 2 with twin beds, one with a double and twin bed (a large room). Guests have access to a living room, kitchen, dining room, office, laundry room and backyard.
Общение с гостями
I travel frequently. When I'm away my next-door neighbor welcomes guests and is readily available.
When I'm home guests can have private use of the shared rooms. I will interact according to the guests' preferences.
In 1994 I moved from NYC to Vermont to take a job creating a community resource center in Bellows Falls--a one-stop-shop for a variety of social services. This dovetailed with previous jobs directing the Children's Aid Society's community center in lower Manhattan and serving as a program officer for a foundation dedicated to grass roots community organizing.
Moving to Bellows Falls in 1996, my husband and I embarked on an odyssey of renovating a white elephant of an old Victorian house. He had a creative sense that transformed the place, creating a unique and welcoming home.
With retirement I find more time to garden, read, cook and travel. I enjoy listening to music via radios (I know, very old fashioned) in the kitchen, living room and the bathroom with the big bathtub. I find frequent opportunities to listen to live music in and around Bellows Falls, Vermont.
I enjoy cooking and entertaining. My house has a fabulous kitchen with large soapstone counters and sinks. The formal dining room has a chandelier from Venice and elegant details.
My husband, who died a few years ago, collected books on natural history, sailing, ecology, environmental design, art and literature. He had been editor of Natural History Magazine and traveled widely. Upon retirement he kept a sailboat in the Mediterranean.
My grown children live in Denver, Washington DC and New York City. A far cry from the Upper West Side of Manhattan where my kids grew up, Bellows Falls is home--a friendly village of 3000 in the Town of Rockingham.
