The SpaceNestled on a wooded hillside at the end of the road, our newly renovated home has four available guest rooms--two single occupancy bedrooms on the second floor, and two double occupancy bedrooms on the third floor of the house. Each bedroom is listed separately on Airbnb, so if you are interested in more than one room, or a different sized room, please see our other listings. We also have a cabin listed through airbnb. It sleeps up to 5. This bedroom listing that you are viewing here has a double bed, and is located on the third floor. It has a great view, and privacy. All rooms include bed and bath linens, and access to two full bathrooms (one with a large stall and rain-shower, the other with a deep soaking tub--we also have a lovely outside shower available during warm months). A self-serve breakfast of local foods is included in nightly rate. Our open living/dining room area is naturally well lit with views across the valley and woodlands. The house is sited above the confluence of two streams, and has a large south-facing deck, screened porch and stone patios, offering space for relaxing or working outdoors. High speed internet and wifi are available, but no television. Cell coverage is poor at the house, but a land line is available for domestic calls. We have a friendly Corgi, a joyful Cockapoo, a shy Great Pyrenees, and gentle cat. Many wild birds visit our feeders year round. In the summer, our house is surrounded by perennial and vegetable gardens, and a growing orchard on the hill above. Our property is adjacent to the Appalachian Trail Corridor and is contiguous with Land Trust and town forest, offering access right out our backdoor to miles and miles of trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing. Each season offers opportunities to glimpse wildlife and birds. We are located 9 miles from the I-91/ I-89 interstate junction, within a short drive to Dartmouth College/Hanover, NH, Woodstock, VT, as well as many ski areas and local attractions. Driving times from Boston: 2.5 hours; NYC: 5 hours; Montreal: 3.5 hours. Public transportation from Boston, New York and Burlington/Montreal (trains and buses) are available to nearby White River Junction. You will need a car to get around, as much of Vermont and New Hampshire is rural with little to no public transportation. There are a number of rental car agencies nearby in West Lebanon, NH/White River Jct, VT. There are many restaurants within a short drive (15-30 minutes). We hope you will consider our home, Solheim ("sunhouse" in Norwegian) for a beautiful Vermont mountain retreat within easy driving distance of many northern New England attractions and activities year round. Guest AccessGuests have access to all public spaces in our home, full use of the kitchen if you prefer to bring in your own food and cook for yourself. All gardens and woods on our property. Interaction with GuestsGuests are warmly welcomed to our home. We will be in residence during your stay, but you determine how much you want to interact. We orient you to the house, and are available to answer any questions. If you prefer to have privacy or less interaction, feel free to come and go as you please. If you enjoy some conversation or a shared breakfast with us, we are more than happy to engage--we've met many wonderful people through airbnb! Other Things to NoteDuring the winter months, Vermont roads require at least good snow tires. Many people have 4 wheel drive vehicles, or use studded snow tires for winter driving conditions. Our road is well-maintained by the town, but it is a typical Vermont mountain road--it will be a challenge without good snow tires or 4 wheel drive until the plow comes through. If you have any questions, please ask!

It is walking distance to the Norwich Farmers' Market, 1/2 mile from King Arthur Flour. The pool is just a few steps away and is open Memorial Day to Labor Day (as is the tennis court).

Hanover is an easy bike ride away. Parking is just outside the door on the right side of the driveway. Other Things to NoteThere is a friendly dog on premises, so you must be comfortable with dogs. Rates negotiable for students or visiting professionals interested in longer stays or flexible arrangements, but typically not longer than a month. Please note: I work at home and often cannot accommodate daytime arrivals - please check in advance if you need to arrive during the day.

The apartment is pet-free, but we do have a dog that lives in the rest of the house. I do have hens and a rooster, so you may hear him in the morning. The apartment is accessed by a private stair just off the mud room / entry to the house, so you will feel as though you have a great deal of privacy. Nightly rates do fluctuate and will increase for Dartmouth graduation & reunion weeks as well as holiday and fall leaf season. Please see the calendar for rates. Getting here: Fly into Boston and take Dartmouth Coach from your BOS terminal to Hanover NH. We will be glad to arrange a pick-up if needed. Fly into Manchester NH (MHT) and take Upper Valley Ride to the Airport to Norwich. Fly into Lebanon NH (LEB) We will be glad to arrange a pick-up if needed.

The SpaceCirca 1850 Cape-style house featured in March, April and May 2013 issues of This Old House magazine (see on-line "From Fixer-Upper to Refined Farmhouse" by Deborah Baldwin) and on houzz (search "Beautiful Hardworking Cape Renovation"). Second floor room w/ private bath in classic New England village, 2 miles from Dartmouth College, close to lakes and rivers, mountains, shopping, museums, theater. Walking distance to fantastic independent bookstore, post office, town green, churches and quintessential general store. Double bed heaped with old antique quilts, hypo-allergenic pillows and 100% cotton sheets. Fluffy towels. Fresh flowers in your room. Bath has small, antique 4 ft. claw-foot tub with hand-held shower. (Please note: there is no stand-up shower.) Cable TV with premium channels. Private stair separates guest room from rest of house. Books and magazines abound. Second sleeping place available for an additional $75 for those who prefer not to share a bed: queen-sized, high-end air mattress in studio adjacent to guest room. Airy room with high ceiling, very comfortable. Shares bath with guest room. Excellent restaurants close by. Hiking in the Green and White Mountains is an easy drive. Other nearby attractions: Simon Pearce glass-blowing, Quechee Gorge, covered bridges, country fairs, King Arthur Flour store & cafe, fishing and Dartmouth's Hopkins Center for the Arts featuring film, concerts and art exhibits. Hanover, NH is right across the Connecticut River and has a multitude of restaurants, shopping, gelato, downtown movie theater showing current features. Five miles from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Our very friendly Labrador Retriever adds to the atmosphere at no additional charge. Please note that prices will be higher for Dartmouth graduation, Dartmouth Reunions and fall foliage season. We are not handicap accessible. Room is at the top of fairly steep and narrow stair. Guest AccessGuest bedroom & en suite bath. Interaction with GuestsWe love getting to know our guests -- it's the real fun of Airbnb -- but if you prefer to have a romantic time with just your partner or are not a morning person and don't want to chit chat, that's okay too. Randy and I are happy to give recommendations for restaurants, things to see, places to ski, etc. The NeighborhoodVermont village setting. Getting AroundThere is no taxi service in the area or really any public transportation, but we are happy to pick you up at the Dartmouth Coach bus stop at the Hanover Inn, providing the timing works. Can also give you a ride to Dartmouth or DHMC if you are stuck. There is a good door-to-door car service that can take you to and from the Manchester, NH, Boston, Hartford, CT and Burlington, VT airports. Please contact us for details. Other Things to NoteThe room is above the kitchen, up it's own staircase and tucked out of sight and hearing of the rest of the house. It is absolutely private, but there is no actual door. At night we will be on the other side of the house where we can't hear you and you can't hear us. (Earplugs available for late- or light-sleepers.) As described, there is no stand-up shower in the private bathroom. This is due to the configuration of the knee wall/roof: there is no room for a full shower. The tub is a small, antique clawfoot with a nice hand-held shower. Nearly all of our guests find this a fun detail. The house was built in 1830 when spaces were just smaller. This adds to the coziness we love. Ceilings are low in the guest room, so if you are tall, you may have to duck a bit. Finally, in an effort to keep our prices low, we no longer offer breakfast. But we will be very happy to make you a cup of coffee or tea to help you jump-start your day!

The SpaceIf you're visiting Dartmouth, or just coming to enjoy the beauty of the Upper Valley, our home is in the perfect location. Exactly 1 mile from Hanover, NH and Norwich, VT, you can easily walk into either town. Located on a charming, dead-end residential street, we have views over the Connecticut River in our quiet backyard. The house will have 2 bedrooms available, both with very comfortable Queen size mattresses, with large closets and plenty of space to leave your things. The rooms both share one bathroom. Downstairs we have two living room areas (one with a projector and screen for some serious movie watching!) and one with a wood-pellet fired stove. The dining room also has a fireplace, and there's an office just off the kitchen. The kitchen is in the center of the house, with a big bay window and breakfast bar looking into the main living room. The kitchen has all new appliances -- fridge, dishwasher, stovetop and oven, etc. -- as well as a new washer/dryer set-up by the 1/2 bath. It's brightly painted, beautiful hard-wood floors, and light-filled during the day! We love living here and we think you will, too. When you're inside our house or in the backyard, you can't see any neighbors, even though we live on a small, dead-end residential street. Our backyard looks out over the Connecticut River. But with our wood pellet-fired stove and a sunny living and dining area, you may be tempted to stay inside all day! Guest AccessFull house + backyard Interaction with GuestsThis is our main home, but we travel quite a lot. We will most likely not be here when you arrive or depart, but will leave plenty of information about the area and how to be comfortable in our home. Getting AroundWe're 1 mile from Dartmouth College, downtown Hanover, and Main St. in Norwich, VT. We're also very close to Route 91, so it's easy to get on and off the highway wherever you need to go. There is a bus that runs from Hanover, NH that drops you right at the bottom of our road. The Dartmouth Coach can take you directly from Hanover, NH to Boston South Station, Boston Logan Airport and Manhattan. The Greyhound and the train leave from White River Junction.

The SpaceNestled on a wooded hillside at the end of the road, our cabin is a light-filled, peaceful and cozy retreat. Two sleeping lofts are accessible by ladder stair above the living area. One loft has a double bed, and the other loft has two twin beds. In the colder months, a Jotul wood stove is your sole source of heat--we'll get the cabin toasty for you before your arrival, and you manage the wood stove to your comfort level during your stay. A kitchenette with bottled water (no running water), sink, small fridge, an induction cooktop, dishes, and cooking utensils is available if you prefer to prepare/eat meals in the cabin.

The SpaceThe Hatch-Peisch house was built in 1773 and is the oldest frame house in Norwich. The main house was lovingly restored by its previous owners; the apartment was added over the garage during renovations and features warm pumpkin pine floors, a full kitchen, a dining table that seats 8, two cozy bedrooms, and a full bath including tub and washer/dryer. It also contains a number of awesome toys/games/legos/books sure to entertain the younger set. Guests access the apartment through the barn at the rear of the house. WARNING: there are three flights of stairs! Guests with kids are welcome to use our trampoline and swing set in the warmer months. We love meeting new people and are happy to hang out over whiskey (or hot chocolate) in our kitchen...but don't feel obligated to come talk to us if you'd rather enjoy the privacy of the apartment! What's not to love about Norwich? Our house backs on to 35 acres of conservation land with some awesome trails, we're close to all the art and entertainment at Dartmouth, and we can walk to Dan & Whit's - our quintessential general store whose motto is "If we don't have it, you don't need it." Advance Transit buses stop by Dan & Whit's, a few minutes' walk away. They'll get you many places in the Upper Valley. In general, though, you need a car to get around.

Dartmouth Green is a little over a mile.

Other Things to NoteWe don't offer long term rentals; our apartment is generally occupied by my parents during the week so weekend rentals are usually all we can manage. No pets allowed - we have a dog who is great with people but not with other dogs.

The SpaceThere are 4 bedrooms. There is a bathroom attached to each bedroom. One bedroom is on the first floor with a private bathroom. There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor. One has a private bathroom the other has a bathroom between the 2 bedrooms. All the bathrooms have a bathtub and shower. The house is 12 years old with all modern fixtures. There are 2 large decks which are excellent for entertaining. This home is in a very quiet forest setting with magnificent views and large pond with hiking trails but only 3 miles from the Ledyard bridge into Hanover, NH. The listing is for $250/room per night. For example, 2 rooms would be $500 for 1 night and 3 rooms would be $750 for 1 night. The home is of the highest quality and an unusual home that is well appointed yet in a remarkable forest setting. The Airbnb listing does not clearly state that there can be 4 bedrooms and the pricing, that I can ascertain. That is why I clarified the pricing per room per night and the number of rooms available. Any questions will be readily answered upon your inquiry. Guest AccessThe guests can access the 4 bedrooms, the kitchen, living room and 2 decks and the entire 160+ acres to roam and hike. Interaction with GuestsI can offer suggestions about sights to see or restaurants. The NeighborhoodThis is a completely safe rural setting but only 3 miles from Hanover, NH. Getting AroundYou will require a car to travel to and from this home. Other Things to NoteI cannot relate enough what an unique magnificent space this home provides both the interior and the grounds to the mountain views.

Dartmouth College (4 miles) and the village center of Norwich, Vermont are nearby. Union Village Road, that brings you to Pattrell Road, is a lovely ride. Vermont guidebooks for bicyclists list it for its aesthetics, wildlife, and vistas. The stream that runs out back, the friendly collie, and the house itself will make you want to stay. Affectionately known as "The Treehouse," it will make you feel like exploring! Good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, kids, and pets.

The SpaceThe Carriage House at Dutton Hill offers guests a suite experience, including the liberty to create your own meals in a stocked kitchenette, recline in the vaulted living room area and enjoy WiFi, Cable TV, and Pandora music channels. Atrium doors open up onto a large balcony where vibrant trees underscore distant mountains. It is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a cocktail. All of this is in addition to two lovely bedrooms, one with twin beds and another with a Queen bed, both open up onto the living area. The charming bathroom provides a shower and all the necessities for a short or longer term visit. Hotel linens are made available to our short term guests as are high end soaps. Details that make a stay at the Carriage House just a little bit indulgent. Guest AccessThe apartment is in a separte building from the main residence with its own access. It is on the second floor of a carriage house. Interaction with GuestsWe live at the main residence and are available at any point during our guests stay. We are happy to interact as much or as little as our guests desire. We often surprise our visitors with a welcome happy hour upon arrival or some warm scones in the morning. The NeighborhoodNorwich is one of the towns that dot the Connecticut River in Northern Vermont and New Hampshire that make up the picturesque Upper Valley. The area is dedicated to four season outdoor adventures and sports and there are numerous nature lovers living here. Norwich has a Norman Rockwell feel to it – a true New England town – with a Town Green, General Store, a tall steepled white Congregational Church and a pub or two- all of which are comfortably nestled into the mountains. There are lots of trails for hiking, biking, skiing, bird watching and such just a short walk from our Carriage House. In fact, the Appalachian Trail meanders through Norwich and can also be reached by foot from this vacation spot. Just across the bridge is Dartmouth College offering up lots of talent, culture, shopping and good eats. World Class theater, opera and music are all available and appreciated here. Getting AroundWe have parking on the premises (please no more than two vehicles). In the winter months four wheel drive is encouraged. We are 1.5 miles to Dan and Whits and the AT - local public transportation but it is best to have a vehicle. The airports in Manchester NH and Burlington VT are both 1.5 hours away. Boston's Logan is 2.5 hours drive. The Dartmouth Coach is a bus that travels from Boston Logan and South Station to Hanover, NH as well as Lebanon, NH both quick rides from there to the Carriage House. The Coach also travels to and from NYC. The train travels from points south to White River Junction - just 8 minutes away from the Carriage House. Grey House also goes to White River Junction Vermont. Other Things to NoteThe Carriage House is situated with gorgeous mountain views. The grounds also incorporate a pond, a fire pit, and gardens that we invite guests to enjoy. (Children must be accompanied by an adult.) We must submit a meals and rooms tax to the state for each visit. Unfortunately, Air does not offer a way to collect the tax when you pay for your stay. Due to this arrangement we will need to collect a nine percent tax on the room charge (not any additional fees) upon your arrival. Thank you for understanding.

The SpaceOur home is located on 2+ acres, very close to the Norwich town center (just over a mile), but far enough "up the hill" to feel totally secluded--a juxtaposition which we absolutely love! In the summer months, we have a large deck out back to eat "al fresco" and numerous blackberry and blueberry bushes yielding delicious finger fruit all summer long. You will feel like you have the house to yourself as you enter your cozy set of rooms located on the first floor and separate from the rest of the house. The private bedroom with a queen bed is connected to a sitting area/office with an oversized chair, couch, and a desk. Adjacent to the sleeping area is a large alcove (where you can see a crib in the photos) with a hanging bar for clothes and a small dresser. (If you do not have a child with you, this area can be closed off with sliding vertical blinds for added privacy...or just so you don't have to look at your luggage!). Finally, the connected bathroom includes a full-sized bathtub, shower, large plush towels, and a vanity. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, and a toothbrush are included for your added convenience as well. There are three hiking trails within a 5 min. walk from our home that are just glorious in all seasons. In addition, we have compiled an extensive list of things to do in the area which include both popular attractions as well as "local gems". Plus, being as centrally located as we are, most activities are within a 2 min-10 min. drive from our home. (We can also recommend places to visit/mountains to ski/trails to hike that are further out and well worth the drive, depending on your interest and availability). FOR FAMILIES WITH A YOUNG CHILD: We include a full-sized crib in the bedroom area, complete with all baby accoutrements including a mattress pad, sheets, video monitor, and a white noise machine. Having traveled with our son when he was younger, we remember how helpful (read: sanity-saving) it was when we did not have to lug sleep supplies with us so we are happy to provide them to you, free of cost, of course! We also have a BabyJogger stroller that is available for use (and covers the myriad hiking trails within walking distance of our home quite nicely!) *We also have a queen-sized air mattress which can fit in the attached alcove or in the sitting room, if you have an older child. Guest AccessPlease note: the ceiling in the bedroom portion of the room is 6'3 (the ceiling in the sitting area is 7'0, however)---a hazard of being built on a mountain! Interaction with GuestsWe love meeting new people and are happy to hang out over some tea (or a beer/glass of wine) in our kitchen...but sometimes toddler-wrangling takes priority over socializing so if you would like to come up and chat, just ask. :) (That said, certainly don't feel obligated to come talk to us if you'd rather enjoy the quiet serenity of your rooms!) The NeighborhoodEven Norwich residents who do not live near us know our neighborhood and street for its stunning beauty--you need only to walk out of our front door (or back!) to see why. In Norwich, we are minutes from Dan & Whit's ("if we don't have it, you don't need it"), the Norwich Farmer's Market, The Montshire Museum, and more trails/parks/etc. than I could possibly name. Dartmouth College is less than 3-miles (a 4-7min. drive, depending on "traffic"), as are all of the Hanover attractions. I am passionate about trying new things in the Upper Valley so if you are looking for something to do/somewhere to eat/some place to explore, just ask--I can likely recommend a handful of options from which to choose. :) Getting AroundAdvanced Transit buses stop by Huntley Meadow, a 5-10min. walk away, which will take you all throughout the Upper Valley. You can also walk/bike to both Norwich and Hanover town centers, but beyond that, you would need a car to get around. Other Things to NoteThe Queen bed sleeps 2 people comfortably (VERY comfortably, from what we hear), but if you have more people in your party, we can also fit a Queen sized air mattress in the alcove or office/sitting area as well. ($25/person above the first two). **Children sleeping in the crib are included in the basic nightly room rate**

Stone Hill Farm, built in 1781, is one of the original homesteads of the area, graciously and elegantly appointed with all modern comforts while honoring the property's deep history. The building structure follows in the tradition of historic New England farmhouse, and each room is designed for maximum comfort and enjoyment. An extensive renovation in 2016, combined with the building of a traditional timber-frame, carriage house style barn, combine the finest modern conveniences with the elegance of historically-appropriate architectural detail.

Welcome to the Carriage House at Dutton Hill, a four-season retreat in a serene setting a mile-and-a-half from the center of Norwich, VT and a few miles from Dartmouth College and Hanover, NH. It is a convenient location for exploring all that the Upper Valley has to offer – wonderful restaurants, theater, museums, art galleries, natural beauty and lots of outdoor fun. The residence is on the second floor of the Carriage House. You first enter into a combined living room and dining area sunlit by many windows and an entire wall of atrium doors that open up to a large balcony overlooking rich fields, vibrant tree lines and distant mountains. It is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. The kitchen has a microwave, electric range and oven, coffee maker, refrigerator and dishes, glassware, utensils, pots, pans and basic cooking necessities. It sleeps four comfortably in two bedrooms: there is a queen size bed in one bedroom and twin beds in the other. To make your stay more enjoyable, the apartment is infused with luxurious touches, such as French linen sheets, Australian wool comforters, lush hotel towels and high end shampoos and soaps. There is an attractive bathroom shared by both rooms that offers nice hot showers. The carriage house is set at the top of a long beautiful lawn punctuated with ancient apple trees and a spring fed pond. Trails surround Dutton Hill providing for lots of hiking, bird watching, mountain biking, ambling and leaf peeping. The network links up with the Appalachian Trail that can also be accessed on foot. In the winter, cross country ski trails are near, downhill skiing and snowboarding a short drive as well as many other winter sports. The summers are cool and comfortable and peaceful at the Carriage House with activities steps away from the front door. Take a night off from cooking and enjoy dinner in Norwich at Carpenter & Main, a great restaurant with a notable Chef who was Executive Chef at the four-star, four-diamond Keswick Hall resort in Virginia. If a pub experience is what you are looking for then Jasper Murdock’s – also in Norwich – is a comfortable place to have a local beer and some tasty grub. Venturing out a bit further, there are lots of restaurants in Hanover as well as shopping. Quechee, the home of Quechee Gorge and Simon Pierce are just a fifteen minute drive away and offer great views and good eats as does Woodstock, VT. White River Junction is a lot of fun too and has excellent restaurants, shops and theater. Closer by, the College at Dartmouth provides plenty of culture and entertainment as well. The apartment is a good fit for anyone seeking a relaxing quiet atmosphere with stunning views, but it is especially ideal for parents of Dartmouth College students, Dartmouth Alumni, patients at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital, relocating executives and those taking courses at King Arthur Bakery. Having said that, families are also more than welcome. The twin room is perfect for children of all ages - far enough from Mom and Dad for privacy but close enough so that they are not afraid. We are about three miles to King Arthur Bakery – a great stop for coffee, lunch or a casual dinner – as well as a cook’s playground. The Montshire Museum is also very near and is a great stop for families. The Hood Museum at Dartmouth also offers programming for all ages. There is plenty to do no matter the time of year. Just get here and we’ll help you figure out the best places to visit!

The SpaceThe forest green hues of the mountains outside the guest bedroom unleash the creative spirit and soothe the soul. The queen sized bed with feather pillow mattress ensures the best sleeps you'll ever have during the quiet, star-filled Vermont nights. Fresh coffee served every morning to envigorate yourself for a new day. Guest AccessGuests have access to the whole apartment, with allowance to store items in the kitchen refrigerator. The host bedroom is a no-go zone, but otherwise, mi casa es tu casa. Interaction with GuestsWill be as accomodating as you desire. Ask me about local hotspots and let me guide you to the ultimate Upper Valley/Upper New England destinations. Someone will always be present during the guest's stay. The NeighborhoodWe love the farmer's markets in the summer, the foliage in the fall (for all you leaf peepers), the skiing in the winter, and the mud in the spring! We have insight into the best hiking/biking/snowshoeing/cross country skiing trails in the region, and live close to many rivers where you can launch your boat or paddle. King Arthur Flour, horseback riding, local cheese, and lots and lots of trees. Truly independent souls, you will not find anywhere quite like the Upper Valley. Getting AroundThe free Advanced Transit bus can be caught right outside our door and can take guests throughout the Upper Valley, although only on weekdays 6am to 6pm. It is best to travel in your own car. Guest parking is available at our home for no charge.

The SpaceThe Mill is situated on Blood Brook and is right on the convergence of the Appalachian and Long Trails, so if you like to hike, you'll be in serious company. It was built in 1766, and is 250 years old as of 2016. (Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!) As an industrial building, (the first structure in Norwich) it was never intended to be a house, and the stairs are ridiculously steep - so work those quads, keep that baby gate up and your hands on the stair railing! The wiring and plumbing are delicate, so you can't run multiple hair dryers and curling irons simultaneously, or flush random stuff down the toilets. The windows are old and hard to open (no problem in wintertime!). And the bathrooms and kitchen are old and small by today's standards. Electrical outlets are scarce. You will run out of hot water if you are the 6th person to shower (and the rest of your group got greedy and decided to take long showers before you woke up). Make no mistake, this is not the Four Seasons! Staying here is more like very fancy indoor glamping in what is a truly unique part of early American history. Some of the exposed beams of this post and beam structure are actually whole trees that still have bark! That said, it is still very inviting: a warm and dry, cozy yet spacious spot with high ceilings and room to gather. And though it may be an old house, rest assured we can't live without fast internet either, so fear not! We do have decent bandwidth here. You might also like to know that since there is no longer state or federal money to rehab historic structures like the Old Mill, with every stay, you, beloved guest, will be helping us to restore her to her finest state! It really is a labor of love, and we hope you can forgive the quirks and shortcomings to marvel at and truly enjoy the many wonderful things that make this place so very special, while we work to make improvements. To make your stay as comfortable as possible in the interim, we've made sure the beds are comfortable and hypoallergenic, and the bed linens are soft and of a high quality. Guests also enjoy warm, fluffy white robes and plush towels. The furnace really cranks heat in the winter and the roof is new, so you don't have to worry about being wet or chilly. Of course, in any season, there are few things as special as being right in town, yet surrounded by private acreage, right next to your very own waterfall with its beautiful sounds and the amazing birds and wildlife it attracts. We've even had ambitious kayakers actually make their way over the falls and to the Connecticut River during the Spring thaw! When you leave this local wilderness, it's just a short, easy walk to Main Street with a free shuttle to Dartmouth and all the intellectual stimulation at which you can shake an Oxford English Dictionary. You can't really blame us for falling madly in love with this quirky place, even if we couldn't run our hair dryers all at once! Guest AccessThere is a small manager's apartment on site with a separate entrance. Beyond that space, you have run of all three floors of the Mill and its surroundings. Please take caution and use common sense if climbing around on the waterfall. Rocks can be slippery and don't be fooled by the size of the brook. They put a mill here hundreds of years ago for a reason. Falling water is powerful! Explore only at your own risk! Interaction with GuestsThe on-site manager will be able to help with any immediate questions and with check in. Our sister Danielle is an Airbnb Superhost for her own home and is also Co-Hosting this listing, so she is available by phone or text, 24/7. The NeighborhoodWe are very, very close to King Arthur Flour Bakery and Cafe, in case you are enrolled in one of their many classes (do let us know if you are!). We are also within walking distance of the Montshire Museum, the Connecticut River, the Norwich Bookstore, Norwich Wine and Spirits, Jasper Murdoch's Alehouse, Carpenter and Main Restaurant, Norwich Square Cafe, and of course, Dan & Whit's General Store where their slogan, "If We Don't Have It, You Don't Need It" could not be more true. You can also fuel your car at Dan & Whit's. While you're at it, if it's wintertime, pop inside, grab some Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey, some local beer or something from their excellent wine selection and lots of other VT goodies and take a peak at how they heat the entire place with wood. It is actually quite impressive! The hallowed halls and ivied influence of Dartmouth are a mere mile away across the river in Hanover NH. The Hopkins Center for the Arts, the Hood Museum, Baker Library, The League of NH Craftsmen Gallery, and the Nugget movie Theater share the center of town with Simon Pearce, numerous fantastic restaurants, shops, live music venues, and local attractions. Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is about 6 miles away. In summer, head to the Connecticut River! Go for a swim off the boat docks at Wilson's Landing or head to the Ledyard Canoe Club to rent kayaks and canoes to explore the Connecticut River Or Take a hike! Gile Mountain – Quick and easy hike that offers great views of the Hanover area. ~10 minutes from downtown Hanover in Norwich, VT; 1,873 ft peak / 1.4 mile hike / 1 hour rountrip. Mount Cardigan – Panoramic views stretching from rural New Hampshire in the foreground to the summits of the White Mountains in the distance. ~30 minutes from downtown Hanover in Canaan, NH; 3,155 ft peak / 3.3 miles / 2.5 hours round trip. Mount Mooselauke – A segment of the Appalachian Trail and part of the White Mountains, and by far the best views in the area. ~50 minutes from downtown Hanover in Benton, NH; Take the Gorge Brook Carriage Road Loop: 4,802 ft peak / 7.2 miles / 4.5 hours roundtrip Recreation in Norwich tends to be of the outdoors variety. The Upper Valley Land Trust maintains about 4 miles of cross-country skiing and hiking trails on the old Cossingham Road Farm, as well as other trails in town. The Appalachian Trail cuts through Norwich right in front of the Old Mill, and heads across the Ledyard Bridge into Hanover, N.H. Pick up local trail guides in Norwich town offices in Tracy Hall (300 Main St.). For children (and adults), the Montshire Museum (1 Montshire Road Adults $9, Children ages 3-17 $7) is a hands-on paradise. You can learn about physics by balancing a beach ball on a blast of air; or observe a glass-enclosed honeybee colony; or find out how long you would need to pedal a bike to power the museum's elevator one story. The museum also has a two-acre outdoor Science Park, which includes a walking tour of the solar system, with scale models of the planets, and miles of trails on its property and along the Connecticut River. For the kitchen conscious, King Arthur Flour (135 US Route 5 south, ), the country's oldest flour company, offers classes in its Baking Education Center, from Beauty and the Baguette to the Twelve Days of Cookies. There are also a few farms that sell vegetables, including Killdeer Farm Stand (163 US Route 5 south), open mid-May through October and weekends in November. The stand sells produce and plants from the farm, as well as locally produced cheese, maple syrup, and meat. If you're in town on a Saturday between May and October, swing by the Norwich Farmers Market (Route 5 south, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.). Local producers sell their vegetables, fruit, plants, honey, and cheese, often there is live music, and you may get to see a sheep shearing. Carpenter & Main (326 Main St. - Entrees in dining room $21-$40, in tavern $9-$14) combines local food and French cooking in two rooms, a more formal setting and a tavern, whose offerings span duck confit to burgers. The Norwich Inn (entrees $23-$33) also offers both a formal dining room and Jasper Murdock's Alehouse with smaller plates ($7-$14). Allechante (289 Main St.) sells beautifully made pastries, fresh bread, and tasty sandwiches (try the one with tomato, goat cheese, and green olive spread). The cafe has a few seats, or sit outside on the Norwich Green in nice weather. Night life here tends to be quiet as the woods in winter. Jasper Murdock's Alehouse at the Norwich Inn is the liveliest spot in town - and the only place that stays open later than 10 p.m. - with beer pumped in underground from the inn's microbrewery. The pub at Carpenter & Main, a little more formal, stays open until 10. In warmer weather, the Montshire Museum offers nighttime nature walks. For more boisterous options, drive across the river to Hanover, N.H., where hungry and thirsty Dartmouth students ensure that a handful of bars and restaurants stay open late. The Norwich Bookstore (291 Main St., Monday-Wednesday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Thursday till 8, Friday-Saturday till 6, Sunday noon to 5) makes a cozy retreat on a blustery winter day and has an impressive slate of author readings. The store's children's section is well stocked with both books and toys. Two quirky stores sit across from each other along a small green called Norwich Square. The J List (289 Main St., Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday till 7) is the more upscale of the two, with accessories from jewelry to cashmere socks to cotton robes. Zuzu's (295 Main St. Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Saturday till 5, Sunday noon to 5) is a bit funkier, with Marimekko designs, well-kept consigned clothes, and oversize purses. Dan & Whit's general store (319 Main St. daily 7 a.m.-9 p.m.) is a Norwich institution, with its uneven wooden floors and eclectic offerings, from wine and fresh meat to long underwear and chicken grain. To get a sense of life in the Upper Valley, read the ads on the sprawling bulletin board outside. King Arthur Bakery also has a vast kitchen store, filled with essentials and luxuries, from cookie sheets to edible glitter. For handmade, nontoxic toys, stop by the shop of Vermont Wooden Toys (31 Tilden Hill Road). Ronald Voake's showroom, in the garden-level basement of his house, is open most days, but call ahead to make sure he's there. For a real treat, and if you are looking to replace an entire wall of your house with a gorgeous piece of floor to ceiling stained glass from the 1850's or some other old architectural marvel, don't miss Vermont Salvage in White River Jct. Just... WOW. The fellow who sources a great deal of the salvage, makes some very interesting modern furniture from his finds. His name is Fletcher and he has a separate shop called Fletcher's Creations, around the corner. Well worth a looksee. As you drive through White River Jct., you may notice Northern Stage and The Barrette Center for the Arts on 74-76 Gates Street. Support this theater! They are bastion of quality talent, and one of the few Actor's Equity Association approved LORT-D professional theater companies in New England. Getting AroundMany people will opt for renting a car while here, but you could actually get by with not having one. Take the Dartmouth Coach from Boston Logan Airport and then use the free shuttle between Hanover and Norwich. If you do have a car, you can park at street level and walk down the hill by the waterfall to the front door. If you have a 4WD vehicle, and ONLY if you have a 4WD vehicle, you can drive down the driveway and access the house that way. Seriously, you do not want to attempt the driveway without 4 or All Wheel Drive. Other Things to NoteAgain, this is an old building! Electrical outlets are scarce, the plumbing is delicate and we have a septic system, so we don't have a garbage disposal or use 2 ply toilet tissue. The dishwasher also requires being hooked up manually and we are careful about the kind of soap we use since we are so close to the brook. There is plenty of hot water if everyone is judicious about how long their showers are. (We have been in a drought, so please do try to conserve water anyway!) Also, it bears repeating: the stairs are very steep! There are a couple bedrooms on the main floor, so we can accommodate those who cannot climb stairs, but the house is not ADA compliant. Most rooms also have a desk, so you can let your inner Thoreau take over. The downstairs can also be transformed pretty easily into a yoga space for everyone. Just click the remote to turn on the electric wood stove (sorry, no real fires until we can get the chimney re-pointed - and they're booked until February!) and heat yourselves up with a few sun salutations. Thankfully, the house has a massive furnace so we no longer rely on a real wood stove anymore. Years ago we used to haul, chop and stack wood all summer long to keep the home fires burning throughout the winter months. Old school! While you are downstairs, check out the bedrock protruding in to the laundry room under the house. The Old Mill is built right in to the rock. When it rains, a river (a trickle, really) does flow through the house. No worries, it's all by design and it has worked this way for 250 years! Even in 2011, during Hurricane Irene, when tragically, so many old covered bridges were washed away and terrible flooding struck the entire state of Vermont, The Old Mill stayed warm and dry as a bone. A small corner of the lower field beyond the gazebo did flood, but if there were any question before, we learned at that point to accept the old timers really did know where to put this place!
