The space
Rental space is on 2nd floor of my simple Victorian-era home, but entirely private just for guests (there are 2 guest rooms), with your own entrance, 24-hr access. Your host stays downstairs. Ample parking area. Room is quiet, comfortable and clean with freshly made (double) bed, soft pillows and bath towels, desk, streamed Netflix and hi-speed WIFI. Rest to the tranquil sounds of a babbling brook outside your window. Common space (with 2nd Airbnb room guests, if booked, otherwise all to yourself) includes bathroom (with amenities) and hallway kitchenette (on first floor). Self-serve breakfast is included (baked goods, granola, fruit, yogurt, juice) and great coffee! Laundry use available on request. Plus our own farm fresh pastured eggs (hardboiled), on request. Also for sale, $5./doz. There is also a neat attic/rec room space (w/sleeping mats) available for 3rd person, sleeping, stretching, etc.

Guest access
The 2nd floor of house and hallway kitchenette are all yours. Outside is a small sitting area, plus rest of the property (3 acres) - including walking path, a cool and refreshing brook, vegetable garden, farm animals (chickens, honeybees and goats) - I am happy give a short tour and to answer questions. You're also welcomed to use the charcoal grill or fire pit(with proper safety protocol) by the stream or even pitch a tent. Many other places to hike and swim in streams within minutes of the house, or enjoy a leisurely walk or brisk jog down quiet country roads in the neighborhood.

Other things to note
>Thorough cleaning/sanitizing protocols are followed and sanitizing wipes, lysol spray and soap are on site for guest use, as well.
>If traveling in winter snow conditions, always check latest weather reports for safe driving conditions. Though we are on an easily accessible, frequently plowed road and plowed driveway, snow tires are a good idea and/or 4WD never hurts in this area. Avoid the Rt 9 to Higley Hill/Lower Dover Rd route on GPS (not a good road). Instead, if coming that way, continue to Wilmington, then North on Rt 100.
>Cell service can be limited.
> Perfume and dye-free laundry detergent used.
>Year-round, I am busy with different aspects of the farmstead life -gardening, animals, etc. You are welcome to join in and help if so inclined. Email me to discuss.
>Adults traveling with teens can request attic/rec room for extra accommodation, or 2nd guest room if available. Sharing bed is not permitted.
>While listing states, "Not suitable for children and infants", exceptions will be considered.
>Alcohol policy: strictly 21 yrs and older to bring alcoholic beverages onto property. Applies to all guests in room. No smoking or drugs.

I'm an artist/designer, who restores old houses, decorates furniture and tends 3 acres here in the Green Mountains. My goats and chickens keep me busy year round, but winter is dedicated to hosting Airbnb ski guests, mostly. A former New Yorker, eventually it was traveling and living abroad that suited me better. But now, Vermont is where I happily call home. Being a landlord and world traveler taught me how to create a comfortable and pleasant space and how appreciated that is. So now I can offer that to my guests. Plus, I really enjoy hosting! my 3 airbnb listings, https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/37127571, https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/12759150 https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17191799. A warm welcome is also extended to our international friends -as a traveler myself -5 years in Bali, Indonesia, 1 1/2 in Italy, extended time in Europe, Australia, India, Latin America, also 4 years in Hawaii (Big Island), I invite inquires from abroad as well as all over the USA.
