The SpaceHilary's Garden Room has both a queen and twin bed, private bath and can accommodate 2-3 persons. This room is a special treat, especially in the springtime, when the scent of apple blossoms drift in. You may also be lucky to hear a chorus of frogs during a summer evening. Views include gardens, pond and forest. A full breakfast is included with each stay. (Nightly rate is $125.00, for 2 persons, or $150.00 for 3 persons, plus 9% VT tax) Guest AccessOur common room welcomes guests with a cozy wood stove, board games and plenty of reading material. There are 16 acres to explore, photograph or paint, including a frog pond, vegetable and flower gardens, fields and forest. Toby, our friendly Border Collie is glad to show guests around or play an energetic game of Frisbee. Guests have access to a refrigerator, microwave, BBQ grill, tea/coffee, snacks, campfire ring, snowshoes, cooler, day packs, private entrance, secure storage for skis & bicycles and free parking. WiFi and Satellite TV are complimentary. Interaction with GuestsOur B&B is also our home and we heartily welcome guests to enjoy themselves while respecting each others' privacy. We are available to meet and greet, provide refreshments upon arrival, assist with dinner suggestions, activity planning and travel recommendations. Tour de Moon snowshoe tour, quilting and preserving workshops can be arranged with prior notice. (Separate fee for each.) The NeighborhoodWe live in a peaceful, unspoiled valley, surrounded by the Roxbury State Forest. Sightings of moose, bear and turkey are not uncommon. Roxbury is a small town, home to ~700 people, a country store, P.O., elementary school, library (a must see), Windridge Camp, and Frazier's greenhouse (another must see.) Uncrowded bicycling, hiking, fly fishing, alpine skiing (Mad River Glen & Sugarbush), cross and back country skiing and golf are nearby. Close to Norwich University and Vermont Technical College, Ben & Jerry's, several of Vermont's microbreweries (Bent Hill, Lawsons, Paine Mountain), and the towns/city of Montpelier (state capital), Randolph, Waitsfield and Warren. Geographically located in the center of the state, makes it convenient to get around and sample all that V ermont has to offer. Getting AroundNo public transportation available, per se, however we are willing to provide transportation within reason, upon prior arrangement. Other Things to NoteOur location is a perfect opportunity for star gazing, given there is virtually no light pollution. Come see the Milky Way, perhaps for the first time!
Impromptu campfires are always a big hit.
