Relax and recharge in our recently renovated Vermont cottage. Enjoy hardwood floors, wifi, a fully equipped kitchen, gorgeous natural light, views of surrounding hills and pond, gardens, and your own private back deck.
Our recently renovated Vermont cottage is a perfect weekend getaway. Upstairs in the sleeping loft, you’ll find a quiet retreat with queen sized bed surrounded by bookshelves, and the nook with an extra long twin bed. On the main level, there is a fully-equipped kitchen, dishwasher, countertop bar with stools, table, and bathroom with funky copper tub and shower. Four steps down brings you to the sitting room where we recommend the comfy sofa as a great reading or lounging spot with full southern exposure. The south facing bay window and cushion seat doubles an additional single bed. Bay window has peaceful views out to the pond and woodlands.
The cottage sits on the same property as the main house, but is a separate structure and is completely private. We have 2 acres with a small pond, brook, woods, a short trail, and with gorgeous Vermont walking and hiking trails nearby. In winter, bring your cross country skis; there are incredible groomed trails one mile from our house in the village center. We have snowshoes you can borrow- just ask! We are 25 minutes to Grafton Ponds nordic ski and snowshoe area as well. While the surroundings are rural, we live on a paved road, accessible in all seasons and just a short drive into Putney.
We are happy to share with you recommendations for local restaurants or you can cook in the cottage kitchen with full fridge, oven, and gas cooktop. Within one mile of our house is an organic dairy farm, an organic produce farmstand, and an artisanal, family-run sheep farm which produces renowned sheep cheeses. Nearby Putney, Brattleboro, and Walpole all have thriving weekend farmer’s markets during the summer season.
Interaction with guests
We are a busy family with three boys; ages 7, 9, and 5 months. We can be around to help you or we can give you space. We want you to feel at home!
Other things to note
The cottage loft stairs are steep and are not recommended for young children. That said, we love hosting families if you and your children are comfortable navigating the open loft space and stairs. Let us know if you'd like us to leave out children's books and toys, or a pack & play!
