The SpaceThis space embodies the offbeat, free spirit of Vermont. The shape is a Dome, spiral staircase, huge shower, glass enclosed room at top. Its got a vibe for lovers of something different. New beds, fabulous hot-tub. Wood stove and propane heat. Guest AccessSituated near famous micro-breweries. Near hiking paths and lakes. Golf in the summer, nearby skiing at Smugglers Notch in the winter. Near Stowe. Montpelier has theatre, great food, and movies. Swimming holes, boating and waterfalls nearby. Interaction with GuestsThis is a complicated house. If you let the vibe in, there is a place for everyone. You can sit alone in the meditation room. You can dance around the studio. Spend any amount of time you want in the hot-tub looking at the stars. This house is about creativity and freedom. The NeighborhoodThis is the road some Vermonters moved to when they felt the rest of Vermont was getting "too developed" - it is totally private, and thoroughly tree-and-lake saturated. The "mission" of the house is a retreat for dancers and artists. Its quirky, with lots of interesting space for private reflection, or hanging out together. Getting AroundThe Dome is near Hardwick, Thirty minutes to Stowe, thirty minutes from Montpelier. Golf or snowshoeing two minutes away, and we are near Cabot Creamery on Route 2. In the winter, its important to have a car which can manage snow. Other Things to NoteHistoric house which had to be entirely renovated. The "yoga guru" who built this house, focused on the openness, energy, light. Lots of glass and not a lot of walls. The addition is more private, and opens out to the hot tub. It is not immaculate. The space in too complex. It is cleaned for hours each time, stocked with coffee and tea, as well as things to cook and bake with. Beds are done, and we clean the hot-tub often.
