The SpaceYour private room has a really comfortable king-sized bed, soft flannel sheets, down-alternative comforters, WiFi, streaming Netflix, satellite TV, optional a/c, fan, closet, iron, and bureau space. It's located on the second floor. There's also a surprisingly comfortable roll-away twin bed. Staying here has the feel of staying with family or friends but without any social obligations! :)
Since becoming hosts in July we've met the most wonderful people, and it has been a joy to have them in our home. We look forward to meeting you!
You are more than welcomed to join us for dinner. Our hope is to create a no-fuss, relaxing stay for you.
It's a great old house (215 years!) with exposed hand-hewn beams and wide-plank floors. The screened/glassed porch is terrific for relaxing with a glass of wine, having a cup of tea for breakfast, curling up with a book, etc. in warmer months and sometimes on sunny winter days. Out back, sit around the fire pit and do some star gazing. There is a couch in front of the wood stove; curl up with a cup of tea, glass of wine, good book.... Guest AccessYou're welcomed and encouraged to use the kitchen, dining room, porch, living rooms, bathroom, and yard as if it were your own home. Shampoos, soaps, lotions, first aid, books, etc., all gladly shared. Fresh towels always at the ready for home and beach.
Please come and go as you wish. Out late? Up early? No problem.
Please make yourself at home. You can make your own meals or share anything we're having. Juice, teas, fruit and breads at the very least will be ready for breakfast; snacks & cold/hot beverages always available. Bicycles may be brought right onto the porch if you wish. Interaction with GuestsWhile I'm always happy to chat, your privacy and desire for your own time and space will be respected. It's likely you'll have the house to yourself sometimes, but I will be available by phone. The NeighborhoodSweet little 9-hole golf course a couple miles up the road. XC ski and snowshoe right out our back door (we have 2 sets of snowshoes to share). 10 minutes to East Burke Village. 25 minutes or so to beautiful Lake Willoughby and Island Pond. (3) ponds with easy access just a couple miles away. Dog care kennel right up the road.
There are some fun dining options, including the outdoor tiki bar and food truck in East Burke, the major cyclists' and locals' hangout. The Foggy Goggle is the new and terrific restaurant in the village. Juniper's at the Wildflower Inn is in a gorgeous setting, and you can get a great burger or a gourmet dinner. Sweet Basil in Lyndonville has weird hours and excellent food. We're an easy drive to Bread & Puppet Theatre (and a fantastic summer and fall food truck in Glover/Barton: whole belly clams and everything else!). The Bagel Depot in Lyndonville is great, and it is right across from the ever popular Miss Lyndonville Diner. Check with me re: concerts, plays, galleries, movies, etc. Other Things to NoteWe have a friendly dog and cat, and while all spaces are cleaned and vacuumed, those with allergies should take note. For groups of more than 3, let's talk; we may be able to make that happen!
