We really enjoy staying at Roberts place, lots to see both in and outside the house. It is centrally located in Bellows Falls and feels like a unique Vermont experience. Robert is very thoughtful and easy-going as a host, and we wish we had even more time to spend with him!

We loved our visit to Robert's place. It was like entering a little museum, with every object and piece of art thoughtfully placed, but also very homey and welcoming. Robert is a wonderful host and the experience was a great introduction to Bellow Falls and it's community. The vi…

We came for a night on the way to a hiking trip and couldn't have had a better time. Robert made us feel right at home and let us stow our food in his fridge. The upstairs bedroom is cozy and colorful with a view of the canal and a great selection of books. We would go back in a …

As presented, only please note that the only bathroom is downstairs and that there are railway tracks nearby. Trains don't run all the time but they were running the night we got in and though i didn't note the time exactly, I would say it was after midnight.

Response from Robert:
Hi Patricia, thanks for pointing out the train activity that can and does happen. Amtrak stops twice a day and at night and early morning a freight train does roll through although I have not figured out there exact schedule. I do mention in my description the one bathroom downstairs so future potential guests please take note.

This was my second time staying with Robert - spent 4 nights here while doing coursework at Antioch. A great place. Robert is a wonderful host who has really opened his home and his heart. Many thanks!
