Our other listings:
The Low Room and the Merrill Room
A renovated barn style guesthouse with three guest rooms on the second story, a shared bath and full kitchen -adjacent to the Green Mountain National Forest. This bunk room, our wee one, is perfect for quiet rest and reading under the cute book lights we include in every room. If you're traveling with lots of gear, you might be more comfortable in the Low room or the Merrill, which are a bit more roomy.
I also offer private pottery classes. They require scheduling separate from your air BnB reservation, so please inquire ahead of your visit. I'd love to teach you how to make pottery! Consider booking the entire guesthouse for a retreat and pottery workshop for your friends and family! Message me for information.
A shared bath and fully equipped kitchen, beautiful meadows and mountain views, (mostly unmarked) hiking trails, dirt road and mountain biking, snowshoeing. Pottery workshops are available with pre-scheduling and are charged separately from guest rooms fees.
Interaction with guests
I am available by text and very happy to help with ideas for a great visit.

You will be given a security code when you book.
