The NeighborhoodMy house is on the last block before the forest begins.You might hear the owls and coyotes at night.There are neighbors houses through the trees on 3 sides of my home-although most times you will not be aware of that fact.
My street is usually quite quiet. The views are of Mountains and trees.Nights can be very star-filled !
The bus is 1 mile from my home.
There are many delicious meals out there at the local restaurants.
The Countryman's Pleasure is down the block-literally. Austrian-American. Delicious,a bit more than the other restaurants but worth it !
Kelvans & Table 24 are local with tasty menu's and fair prices. Service is good. Both offer bars as well.
Sweet Carolines is a nice place as is Little Harry's , The Palms (Italian)
My favorite breakfast place is Johnny Boy's Pancake house - hands down ! Excellent food,good service and reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere too !
Also try Clems , Sugar and Spice Pancake house , Sewards family restaurant.
I like McGrath's Pub at the Inn at the Longtrail for a few beers(Guiness w/ a clover design on tap) Patrick makes a tasty Irish stew and a delicious Irish Whiskey Bread Pudding.
Free Irish music on Friday nights !!
The Paramount theatre is a genuine olde time theater from 100 years ago. Houdini performed there!
They have various shows,movies,etc.. Check it out!
Lots to see and do in Rutland.
Killington has some clubs but truthfully that's what you have back home-try something different on your vacation in Vermont !!! Getting AroundAmtrak comes right into Rutland city. At the Walmart shopping center. 5 minute drive from my place.
Rutland Regional Airport is about a 10-15 minute drive. Maybe 10 or so miles from here. They have flights in and out of Boston for a connector flight.
There are some Taxi's in Rutland but they actually are not that reliable !
The Bus goes everywhere for $2.00 a trip. 1 mile to closest stop.
There are several car rental places nearby too. Other Things to Note1--I will be available or I will have a friend that lives within a 5 minute drive available for any emergencies/repairs/questions,etc...
2--I have a contract for snow removal,sanding,salt.
I provide salt and ash for extreme weather-which we get often!
3--If more than 7-8 people total in home try to keep this in mind:
The well water makes it important to take shorter showers and space them out a minimum of every 10 minutes at end of ski day.
Wash full loads of clothing and wait 1/2 hour minimum between loads.
If using dishwasher ,please make it full. Don't run D/W when someone is taking a shower.
When showering-test water 1st.Don't get in and turn on-you'll freeze.
Run water 30-45 seconds 1st. to heat.
With a bit of care you will not have any water issues.
4--Please be responsible with Thermostats and Heaters. I have had people turn the thermostat on 90 degrees and open the doors and windows at 35 below zero.
I will supply oil but if the use is excessive their will be an additional charge.
5--Please be careful cooking with oil in the kitchen as not to cause a fire or a need to open all of the windows for an extended period of time when it is below zero outside.
Please make sure that the oven and range are off when you are finished with them-I should not have to say this but again,it has happened!!?
Also make sure candles are extinguished when going to bed at night.
I mention these things because they have ALL happened!
The main reason I am looking for a single home rental is that you will all know each other and hopefully respect each other as well .
6-- I RECYCLE !!! -Will you please attempt to recycle all plastic ,metal and glass containers? Also, any papers,junk mail, cardboard.
I will provide recycling bins and garbage cans.
I will take the garbage to the dump. I also take the recyclabLe items to the recycle center- there is no garbage collection. You're not in Kansas anymore!!
If I think of anything else important I will ad it here.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR COOPERATION WITH THESE MATTERS! -Chris-
