The Space

Sanctuary, our home, is filled with light and plants and art. There are views of nature out of all of the many large windows. The hand-painted walls give a feeling of warmth and coziness to the spacious rooms with slanting high ceilings.

Our lovely guest room is off of the living room and not near other bedrooms. It has a large window onto the garden, as well as sliding glass doors that open onto your private deck overlooking our small garden pond. There is a half-bath in the guest room, and the full bath with a great shower and large oval bathtub is next door to your room. A small refrigerator is in the guest room for your use. You are welcome to relax in our living room. Guests particularly like to read or do yoga on the raised platform at the far end of the living room.

We provide organic coffee and tea along with a light breakfast for our guests, such as fruit, yogurt and granola.

Sanctuary is situated in the forest just above the tiny village of Westminster West. The villages of Putney and Saxtons River are 7 and 5 miles away, and provide interesting restaurants, pubs, a food coop, a village market and general store, terrific live music of all kinds. The Saxtons River Fourth of July parade is legendary as the best small-town parade ever! We are ten minutes from the Putney School, the Greenwood School, Vermont Academy and Landmark College. Putney has a farmers' market on Sunday. This is the best of Vermont! Oh, and we are just 25 minutes from Brattleboro, a vibrant, eclectic, art-filled town of 13,000.

The gardens at Sanctuary are really amazing. It is an oasis of flowers and veggies in the middle of a tall deciduous forest. Fairies live here, or so say our young friends who sometimes build fairy houses. Lots of frogs, toads, and birds for sure.

Quiet, beautiful, restful, heartful.

Guest Access

Our handbuilt stream, waterfall and garden pond are right outside of the guestroom. So peaceful, such a wonderful sound of the stream! You are welcome to enjoy our gardens.

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy getting to know our guests. We sometimes have breakfast with them in our sunroom or in the garden.

The Neighborhood

Idyllic Vermont countryside and small villages. We can direct you to great nearby hiking trails: The Pinnacle, Putney Mountain and Black Mountain are all within a few minutes. There are 5 farmers' markets within 30 minutes of us. Good antiquing in nearby Chester or Bellows Falls. Many great performances as nearby as Putney (Yellow Barn, Sandglass Theatre, Next Stage) and too many to count in Brattleboro!
