The Space

This beautiful, bright and sunny studio apartment is the perfect place for a quiet vacation or a romantic weekend get-away. It is part of a 200 year old farmhouse, but is a separate and private space. It is bright and spacious in summer, cozy and warm in winter, and glorious in the fall. You will find everything you need to leave behind the hustle and bustle of your busy life, and spend some quiet time in beautiful rural Vermont. The afternoon sun pours in the large old windows, and the wide pine floors glow honey gold. You can relax with a good book, nap in the comfy bed, cook a meal in the fully but simply appointed kitchen, or soak in the tub. If you need to work, you will have all the quiet you need, plus good cell coverage and high-speed wireless internet. You can come and go as you please, and have as much contact with homeowner as you want. There is a shared main entrance, but the studio (email hidden)e studio consists of a good sized living/bedroom with a comfy full size bed, plus a brand new fold out full-size sleeper for extra guests or your little one. A pack & play for babies is available upon request. The kitchen is equipped for cooking simple meals, with service for 4. The full bath is roomy and the bathtub is great for soaking. Two thick robes are on the door for your comfort.

The flower-covered front porch is the perfect place to dream away a summer afternoon. Lie in the hammock with a book, or have your morning coffee at the outdoor table while listening to the birdsong and the neighborhood roosters. Venture out through the meandering pathways into secret gardens, ponds, and fruit trees. Fill your bucket with delicious sun-warmed raspberries, and pick vegetables straight from the garden for your supper.

Situated in a quiet and friendly rural neighborhood, you are but minutes from I-91, and 20 minutes from the Upper Valley. Hartland is a quaint Vermont town, with a diner, yoga studio, general store, library, gas station (with a surprisingly good wine selection), a Unitarian Universalist (email hidden), and a fantastic farmer's market on Fridays. There are miles of dirt roads right outside the door, to wander and get lost (I can give you a map!), or hop on your mountain bike and be gone for an afternoon. Hartland has an amazing network of miles and miles of public access cross-country ski trails, so if you come in the winter do bring your skis or snow-shoes. I can also tell you where to rent some.

Studio is walking distance to town, and is a ten minute walk to the Skunk Hollow Tavern, where you can enjoy a pub meal downstairs or head upstairs for a romantic dining experience in an historic old tavern. Put your dancing shoes on for a Friday night with some of the best live bands around, or enjoy open mic night on Wednesdays.

Historic Windsor, with its shops, restaurants, museums, river adventure company, bike shop, the Harpoon Brewery, a brand new craft vodka distillery, and one of the longest and most photographed covered bridges in the world, is minutes away. In the other direction you'll find Woodstock, just 20 minutes away. Woodstock has been voted one of the most beautiful towns in the US and is full of lovely shops and restaurants, covered bridges, the Billings Farm and Museum, galleries, and antique shops - it is quintessential Vermont.

The Upper Valley, also 20 minutes away, consists of towns on both sides of the Connecticut River, in Vermont and New Hampshire. You will find restaurants to suit all tastes, wonderful shops and many tourist attractions. Hanover, New Hampshire and Dartmouth College are here, and so is the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, a premier hospital and health care center. The King Arthur Baking Store and School is just up the road and offers a beautiful new shop that is a baker's dream, and also offers baking classes throughout the year. Vermont Law School is a 25 minute drive.

There are numerous smaller ski areas within a half an hour, and Killington, the "beast of the east" is just a 40 minute drive, through picturesque hills and forest. Rivers, lakes, hiking trails, miles of mountain biking roads and trails, and several premier distance running and biking races and events make this the perfect destination for any outdoor enthusiast.

Play hard, see the sights, go to meetings or medical appointments, put in a day on the slopes, or just meander the back roads and rivers of this beautiful part of Vermont, and then return home for a peaceful and quiet rest in your own comfortable little space.

Children are more than welcome in this space - with advance notice toys, games and snacks will be provided.

This home (email hidden) and is lgbtq friendly.

Sorry, but no pets are allowed. But, don't worry - Maya, the ten year old friendly golden retriever will not mind a bit if you are feeling the need to do some dog petting!

There is nothing fancy here, but there is all that you need - that's why it feels like home.

  • My boyfriend and I recently stayed in Nancy's studio for a few days while we explored Windsor County, en route from NYC to Burlington. The well-appointed studio is very pretty, clean and New England-y (we especially loved the plank floors), and we were very comfortable during our stay. In addition, Nancy has gone above and beyond as a host - communication has been pleasant, prompt and easy, and she even offered to (and did) install an air conditioner for us during an unusually hot and humid week. Highly recommended!

  • Nancy's beautiful, sunny studio apartment was a perfect fit for us on our wedding weekend in Vermont. Clean, bright, spacious and very charming. Nancy was so helpful before and during our stay ~ she even let us hold our ceremony in her amazing garden! It was a truly magical place with a pond, sculptures, and beautiful flowers in bloom. Nancy welcomed us with open arms and made our weekend especially memorable ~ she had great suggestions for dining and exploring, and really made us feel at home. Hartland was a terrific location to explore the Upper Valley, and Nancy's place is right around the corner from Cobb Hill Cohousing community which offers yogurt, cheese, maple syrup and fresh vegetables all produced right there on the farm! We look forward to returning to Hartland and staying with Nancy again.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful, but quick stay at Nancy's Sunny Studio. It was a great, bright space with a comfortable bed, good space and perfect kitchen. Nancy was even nice enough to have some little snacks waiting in the kitchen, which were great for an early morning rise.

    Her property is adorable with tremendous gardens and scenic views. If you are headed up to the middle of VT, I highly recommend this quiet little gem.

  • I had a great visit in Nancy's cheerful apartment. It was very easy to find and arriving when Nancy was out was no problem. The space has sunny yellow walls, beautiful wide floorboards, and soft white linens. The kitchen was adequately stocked for simple cooking, and Nancy supplied us local yogurt, granola, eggs, coffee, cream, etc. We felt very welcome. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this sweet spot. The studio apartment is clean and thoughtfully laid out. The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding towns and for going for beautiful walks right outside the door. Nancy was friendly and the perfect hostess....we knew she was there if we needed any assistance, but she totally gave us our privacy.
