Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This is a spacious guesthouse/retreat where you can relax and unwind. There are great views and walking down the road is serene, with open fields bordered by woods and teaming with wildlife. There are guinea fowl and chickens as well as my friendly dog Annie who loves to play.

The space
This is a large one bedroom apartment with tall ceilings and great light. It has vintage touches mixed with modern amenities.

The wood shop downstairs is sometimes active, and if you are interested, you can work on a project or just talk to Ben about plans for your own space.

Nestled in the foothills of the green mountains, we’re just 10-15 minutes to restaurants in Bristol or Middlebury and 30-40 minutes to the lake or skiing. Burlington and Rutland are both around 45 minutes.

Guest access
The entire apartment is available to guests, as well as lawns, gardens, walkways and patio. There is a gas grill as well as a Weber for outdoor cooking on the patio and you are welcome to cook and eat on the picnic table - I’ll join you if I’m around. : )

The property is 30+ acres and offers walking paths through the woods, including a beaver pond and is adjacent to walkable fields and woods surrounding the property. The perimeter of the fields is kept mowed so you can take a walk without too much wading through tall grass. One guest mentioned the diversity of bugs and birds here. If you want nature, this is the place to be.
There are tics here, though, so walking in the spring and fall is best kept to the road.

Other things to note
In order to get to the apartment entrance, you have to walk between the house and shop, around to the right where the single door has a stone step in front of it.

The key is on the hook at the bottom of the stairs. Feel free to lock up when you are out, just return the key to the same spot when you leave. Locking up is optional as we are way out in the country...I’d rather set out a plate than lock up.

Our house is a 1/4 mile from the nearest neighbor, at the end of a dirt road. It is at the top of a hill so it has great views of the foothills and the back side of Mad River Glen through the Bristol gap although that view is quickly getting grown over. The road is great for walks or bike rides and the area is famous for it's great hiking, skiing or sailing.

I'm a carpenter/cabinet maker interested in building science and tiny houses. I've stayed in St. Thomas at a great airbnb on the north side of the island...and Montreal, near the university. Our host in Montreal had a small apartment that was a little tight, but he was knowledgeable about the city and even helped us find a parking spot. B&Bs add that personal element to travel that I can't get from a big hotel.

During your stay
I’m usually around off and on throughout the day and would gladly help you find things around the property or discuss your itinerary for the day. I have hiked most of the local and many of the regional trails and can be of service in choosing which to tackle next. I also mountain bike the local trails and play hockey in Middlebury and South Burlington. If you're coming up for a tournament, I'd love to hear from you.
