The SpaceMy house is a cute split level that I painted a fun shade of purple. I moved in Summer 2016 and I'll be making improvements in the future. But for now, it's cozy and colorful - decorated with art and collectibles from my travels around the world. The sounds at night include crickets, owls, and wild turkeys. I feel so lucky to be living life among the trees with space to breathe fresh air and slow down at the end of each day. If you like to relax on your vacations, this is the place for you! Guest AccessI have a guest room on the main level with a queen size bed and memory foam mattress. This room is cozy, clean and you'll feel right at home. I also have a room in the basement with natural light, a queen size bed and a memory foam mattress. That room needs a little TLC - and renovations are forthcoming - but for now, it's cozy and private and you'll sleep like a champ!
We'll share a bathroom, the spacious kitchen and living room. I have TV with too many channels, wifi, and comphy couches for reading, chatting, and winding down. Interaction with GuestsI'll be more than happy to give you as much information about the area as I can. I can get you to some great trailheads for hiking, direct you to the local skiing areas, recommend good drives for viewing the changing autumn colors, and provide a hit list for the top eateries, bars, and music venues in surrounding communities (Burlington, Richmond, Jericho, Winooski, etc.). The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is very friendly and we all look out for each other. Out of respect for one another, we keep speeds on our road to a slow and easy 25mph. It's really important that guests are friendly with neighbors they pass on the road - a wave and smile goes a long way when driving by. Getting AroundYou should have a car (or be on a self-sustaining bike tour). There is no public transportation that reaches me, and there's not much to do or see within walking distance. Other Things to NoteI have two cats - indoor only - who I adopted when I lived in Armenia. They are very sweet with a lot of personality. They won't sleep in your room, but they are otherwise part of the house.
Some days I teach until the evening. If I know I won't be home by dark, I might ask for help putting the chickens away so that they don't fall prey to wandering foxes, bears, or raccoons - but only if you're ok with that. Otherwise, they can stay 'cooped up' all day and they'll be fine. The girls - Dory, Devan, and Delilah - are quite lovable!
