Located 7 miles from Stowe on a quiet back road; the beauty of our home lies in its connection to nature. Unwind, relax, explore, and have fun. A private suite with bath (primary space) and a separate bedroom (if needed) accommodate up to 5 people.
Our home is equally suited for a couple's romantic get-away, friends gathering for a holiday together, or quality time spent with the family. Our location is very peaceful and private. We have a beautiful pond with ducks, a visiting Great Blue Heron, and plenty of frogs. Our grass labyrinth provides a place for contemplation while our horseshoe pit offers a spot for friendly competition! Explore our woods and organic vegetable garden, walk/bike the surrounding dirt roads, use our home as your base while you visit the many local attractions, or simply sit on our screen porch and listen to the birds and crickets. The second floor private suite includes a bathroom with a shower, provides plenty of space for your belongings, and comfortably sleeps 1 to 3 people. An additional bedroom with a queen size bed can accommodate up to 2 more people in your party and shares the bathroom with the suite. Children are most welcome. A selection of organic coffee and tea is provided.
Guests have access to the kitchen, the dining and sitting areas, the screen porch, and the surrounding property. And while swimming is not allowed in the pond, we are less than 7 miles from Lake Elmore State Park.
Interaction with guests
The level of interaction varies based on the desires of the guests. My bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor allowing more privacy for everyone.
Other things to note
Local attractions include Stowe, Moss Glen Falls, and Elmore State Park. We are within a half hour of the Green River and Waterbury Reservoirs, Long Trail, Smuggler's Notch, Bingham Falls, Hyde Park Opera House, Johnson Woolen Mill, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, and Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. Our location provides easy access to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center and Montpelier as well.
We ask that guests refrain from inviting family or friends to the house. Bring slippers as we live on a dirt road and removing shoes in the entry helps immensely in keeping the floors clean. For safety reasons we ask that you not swim in the pond. Thank you.
Our dog, Lilly, and I welcome you to our home. I am an avid cross country skier and have been an instructor since 2001. I am a writer and a Reiki practitioner. A fun day for me is spent in the woods skiing, hiking or camping; on my bike exploring back roads; on the water paddling; walking on a sandy beach; or just relaxing and writing. I left the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom and never looked back. One of my greatest travel experiences was a 21 day backpacking trip through England with my daughters on the Coast to Coast and Herriot Way trails. I enjoy meeting people and providing a very casual, relaxed setting in which everyone is comfortable putting their feet up and being themselves.
