Cozy small one bedroom house with sleep-in loft, off the beaten track in the lovely Green Mountains of Southern Vermont.
Rustic, with a chance to relax, away from the distractions of city life. Perfect for couples, can accommodate up to three adults.
Downstairs bedroom has queen bed; loft has full futon mattress. Great in all seasons--check with us before booking in Winter for road conditions. Private, peaceful, with beautiful surroundings.
The cottage--or little house, as we like to call it--offers a homey, lived-in, rustic feel. Built by local carpenters and artisans, the little house was constructed largely from reclaimed materials, including the wood trim and antique beams. There are wide plank pine floors in the old style of building, with no carpeting. Hand crafted custom cabinets and a decorative ceiling fan add to its rustic charm.
The dining area includes a table to seat four and a comfortable reading nook. There are flowering plants and original artwork throughout the little house, and plenty of books--and fun board games--for guests' enjoyment.
The kitchen offers a gas range, oven, blender (great for milkshakes), small microwave, and coffee maker, and is fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, and cooking pots to use during your stay.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and view into the wooded yard. The upstairs sleep-in loft features a full sized futon mattress (without frame) complete with all beddings, and an upholstered armchair to sit and relax. Access to the loft is on stairs. There is one bathroom with full bath and shower.
The cottage is fully available for your use, as well as a small yard and surrounding woods. A lovely winding road leading to the cottage is a great place to take a walk.
We are always just a phone call, email, or text away, to answer questions, make recommendations of places to visit, or anything else you may need during your stay.
- Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises. Because some of our guests have allergies to pets, we regrettably cannot accommodate animal visitors. Although we love them, the house is not suitable for young children.
My family has maintained a home in Guilford for over 50 years. I've also lived in New York, Los Angeles, and Paris, and spent several years "on the road".
My time traveling taught me the importance of hospitality, which we aim to offer 100% to all of our guests.
We built our comfortable post and beam house in the '90's to raise our children, and added the cottage in 2012. We enjoy being able to share our homestead with our guests, and enjoy getting to know the many wonderful people who have passed through our doors.
If you love privacy and the beauty of the mountains, we think you will like it here! We look forward to welcoming you.
