The SpaceThe front door opens to a grand, high ceilinged, light filled great room, with its generous living room with 2 couches, wood stove, dining area and well appointed kitchen are all in one space. So whomever’s cooking still gets to enjoy the views, the light, the woodstove crackling and the company of the other guests. There’s the Master bedroom and bath that opens off the great room, upstairs to a 2nd bedroom and full bathroom and extra sleeping loft/library. down in the basement is the tv den, and off that is bedroom 3, the music room (basement is fully exposed in rear, so there's 2 windows in the basement bedroom, you won't feel like you're in a basement!) Guest AccessThe house is full of great books, CDs and a DVD/VHS collection for your use. (There’s no cable or satellite hookup, but there is wifi if you’d like to stream your favorite shows on your laptop, and I can point you in the direction of sports bars if there’s a game you’d like to watch). There’s yoga mats and props for those who wish to practice on their vacation. Additionally, I’m a former professional chef - so Memorial Day til Columbus Day if my schedule allows, I can provide full B&B service for an additional charge, and stock the fridge with food and snacks and make you one truly excellent meal per day (your choice for when and what). This is my real life home, (though I've cleared all drawers and surfaces for you) and it is decidedly not child-proofed and I mostly will not be available to put my breakables and valuables out of reach. The woodstove is exposed to curious hands, the upstairs loft is open with just a small railing separating. So it may not be the best choice for visitors with very small children. I can recommend other great choices nearby if you message me. Interaction with GuestsI live most of the year in New Orleans, so outside of email and phone calls if you need something, from Oct 1 - May 20th I won't be personally available to greet you. There's contacts for the housekeeper and a handyman and some emergencies (though of course, contact me first if you just have a question). Summer and early Fall I will likely be staying in a summer shack in the back acres of the property across the river, and can be as available or not as you'd like. I do need to take care of the garden some if you're there for more than a few days in the summer. You will reap the benefits of any seasonal bounty in the way of fresh cut flowers, herbs and vegetables! The NeighborhoodThis corner of southern Vermont is a locavore’s paradise. Award winning cheese farm, Consider Bardwell, is just up the road – stop by, play with the goats and stock up on truly amazing goat and cow cheese. Raw milk and eggs and excellent pies are available at the farm next door (Wayward Goose). There’s great farmer’s markets all year round, stock up on grain fed, organic eggs, meat and poultry, other excellent local cheeses and seasonal vegetables and fruits. There’s apple and berry picking in season all round as well. (And a ton of berries on the rail trail and apples on my 3 apple trees in season). For restaurants, shopping, activities outside the house -Saratoga Springs is an hour away, Dorset is 20 minutes distance, Manchester is 30 minutes away. Stratton/Bromley ski areas are about 50 minutes drive. Getting AroundThe nearest train station is in Albany, over an hour away. And food and other supplies can only be gotten by car. In other words, a car is pretty necessary. Other Things to NoteAll appliances - dishwasher, hot tub, washer/dryer. in addition - wifi, national free long distance calling via land line (your cell likely won't work there), and a few sets of x-country skis (mostly ranging from Men's 8 1/2 to men's 10 1/2. sorry - big footed family!) I’m a professional musician and writer. There’s no piano in the house, though there likely will be by mid summer. If an artist, musician or writer would like to come up solo for a creative retreat, message me privately and we’ll work something out. It’s a great place to create. I’ll even hide the internet router so you’re not tempted to distraction. The walls are all wood, everything you sing sounds great in there. Please no smoking inside the house. No pets. Be kind to my books, records, vintage kitchen implements etc.

The NeighborhoodThe farmstead was built by David Hopkins in 1790, after the revolution and the signing of the articles of confederation. George Washington was president of the fledgling nation. The Hopkins family came from Rhode Island with the Wilson family. The Wilson homestead is just half a mile away on Chamberlin Mills Road. The area has been dedicated to dairy farming, however some farms are converting to beef production, sending grass fed beef pork and lamb to markets in Albany, New York, and Boston. The homestead was last farmed by Owen and Grace Ensign from 1920 to around 1960. It was renovated by Charlie and Aggy Duveen without destroying the simple charm of the house, and it has been run as a bed & breakfast since 2005. We currently have two gentle donkeys, Winonah and Waldo, who patrol the east and west pastures. Guest are welcome to bring them apples or carrots. Getting AroundWe are within short driving distance to Manchester, VT, Lake George, NY, and the southern tip of Lake Champlain. Saratoga Springs is a 45 minute drive on Route 29, which meanders west through the Batten Kill valley. Our old farmstead includes nine outbuildings, three of which date back to 1790. Guests are welcome to walk the grounds or hike by the off-road corn and alfalfa fields. There are many bicycle routes nearby for those looking to to experience riding in the area. Other Things to NoteThis old 18th century house is welcoming to children of any age, and our playroom includes toys and games for young people.. We also allow guests to bring well behaved pets. We cannot allow cats in the house, as some guests are allergic to felines. We strive to keep the house comfortable and quiet. There are no TVs in the rooms, and there is no TV reception. However we do have a DVD player in the playroom for watching movies.

            Cozy private cottage on our sheep farm in the mountains of West Rupert. No other houses are visible from the cottage. Visitors have called it a retreat and an oasis. Warm weather sit in the Adirondack chairs on the patio overlooking the pristine year round brook. Cold weather fire up the wood-stove. We get lots of compliments on the book selection at the cottage - and several writers and artists have visited. The property provides a respite yet is within easy distance of Manchester and the Mountains and the surrounding area. We maintain 4 notebooks at the cottage filled with brochures about activities in the area ranging from sports, arts, shopping to dining etc. Although we did not lose power during Irene and Sandy the cottage now has its very own generator in case of power outage.

            Gorgeous, romantic and peaceful fully appointed and luxurious 3bd/3bath private log home near dorset with front porch and 2 rear decks (one with hot tub!) with beautiful gardens, river and creeks, forest and meadows. Can sleep 6 (additional charge for more) there's 3 proper bedrooms plus a sleeping loft all with queen sized beds. The Space The front door opens to a grand, high ceiling, light filled great room, with its generous living room with 2 couches, wood stove, dining area and well appointed kitchen are all in one space. So whomever’s cooking still gets to enjoy the views, the light, the vermont castings wood stove crackling and the company of the other guests. There’s the Master bedroom and bath that opens off the great room, upstairs to a 2nd bedroom and full bathroom and extra sleeping loft/library. down in the basement is the tv den, and off that is bedroom 3, the music room (basement is fully exposed in rear, so there's 2 windows in the basement bedroom, you won't feel like you're in a basement!) Guest Access The house is full of great books, records and a DVD/VHS collection for your use. (There’s no cable or satellite hookup, but there is wifi if you’d like to stream your favorite shows on your laptop, and I can point you in the direction of sports bars if there’s a game you’d like to watch). There’s yoga mats and props for those who wish to practice on their vacation. Additionally, I’m a former professional chef - so Memorial Day til Columbus Day if my schedule allows, I can provide full B&B service for an additional charge, and stock the fridge with food and snacks and make you one truly excellent meal per day (your choice for when and what). This is my real life home, (though I've cleared all drawers and surfaces for you) and it is decidedly not child-proofed and I mostly will not be available to put my breakables and valuables out of reach. The wood stove is exposed to curious hands, the upstairs loft is open with just a small railing separating. So it may not be the best choice for visitors with very small children. I can recommend other great choices nearby if you message me. Interaction with Guests I live most of the year in New Orleans, so outside of email and phone calls if you need something, from Oct 1 - May 20th I won't be personally available to greet you. There's contacts for the housekeeper and a handyman and some emergencies (though of course, contact me first if you just have a question). Summer and early Fall I will likely be staying in a summer shack in the back acres of the property across the river, and can be as available or not as you'd like. I do need to take care of the garden some if you're there for more than a few days in the summer. You will reap the benefits of any seasonal bounty in the way of fresh cut flowers, herbs and vegetables! The Neighborhood This corner of southern Vermont is a locavore’s paradise. Award winning cheese farm, Consider Bardwell, is just up the road – stop by, play with the goats and stock up on truly amazing goat and cow cheese. Raw milk and eggs and excellent pies are available at the farm next door (Wayward Goose). There’s great farmer’s markets all year round, stock up on grain fed, organic eggs, meat and poultry, other excellent local cheeses and seasonal vegetables and fruits. There’s apple and berry picking in season all round as well. (And a ton of berries on the rail trail and apples on my 3 apple trees in season). For restaurants, shopping, activities outside the house -Saratoga Springs is an hour away, Dorset is 20 minutes distance, Manchester is 30 minutes away. Stratton/Bromley ski areas are about 50 minutes drive. Other Things to Note All appliances - dishwasher, hot tub, washer/dryer. in addition - wifi, national free long distance calling via land line (your cell likely won't work there), and a few sets of x-country skis (mostly ranging from Men's 8 1/2 to men's 10 1/2. sorry - big footed family!) I’m a professional musician and writer. There’s no piano in the house, though there likely will be by mid summer. If an artist, musician or writer would like to come up solo for a creative retreat, message me privately and we’ll work something out. It’s a great place to create. I’ll even hide the internet router so you’re not tempted to distraction. The walls are all wood, everything you sing sounds great in there. Please no smoking inside the house. No pets. Be kind to my books, records, vintage kitchen implements etc.

              We have owned this home for 10 years as a relaxing weekend get away and recently decided to rent. The cabin is on 11 acres, but we have only one neighbor in the summer only. The cabin is on the side of a private mountain at 1300 feet elevation so there is an entire mountain to hike or snowshoe(all sizes available for your use). Our porch overlooks a brook that passes right by the house that runs year around. Because it is remote, cell phone service is spotty at the cabin, but you can use WIFI calling or the land line, we do have satellite TV. There are sleds , snow shoes and snow tubes as well. The Cabin is 10 minutes from Sherman's General Store, Great Sugar Houses (Maple Syrup around March), and Dairy Farms (There is a Vermont cheese weekend and the dairy farms give tours). In 20 minutes you can get to Manchester, in 25 Bromley Mountain, 15 minutes from the Norman Rockwell Homestead in Arlington and another terrific general store. In Dorset there is a great marble quarry for swimming; about 15 minutes. Saratoga Springs is about 35-40 miles and the drive is not bad if you want to see the horse races or go to the mineral baths. There are all types of board games and a pool table in the lower level. There is also a laundry room in the lower Level. Bedroom on the main level has a queen bed, the Lower Level bedroom has two twins and the upstairs bedrooms have 4 twins in each but comfortably sleep two adults in each. Because we are on the side of a hill, the lower level is a walk out and bedroom has a window.
