Charming New England house circa 1820, 2 miles from Dartmouth College/Hanover, NH.

The space
Circa 1850 Cape-style house featured in March, April and May 2013 issues of This Old House magazine (see on-line "From Fixer-Upper to Refined Farmhouse" by Deborah Baldwin) and on houzz (search "Beautiful Hardworking Cape Renovation").

Second floor room w/ private bath in classic New England village, 2 miles from Dartmouth College, close to lakes and rivers, mountains, shopping, museums, theater. Walking distance to fantastic independent bookstore, post office, town green, churches and quintessential general store.

Double bed heaped with old antique quilts, hypo-allergenic pillows and 100% cotton sheets. Fluffy towels. Fresh flowers in your room. Bath has small, antique 4 ft. claw-foot tub tucked under the knee wall -- no room to stand -- with handheld shower gizmo that you have to sit to use. Cable TV with premium channels. Private stair separates guest room from rest of house. Books and magazines abound.

Second sleeping place available for an additional $75 for those who prefer not to share a bed: queen-sized, high-end air mattress in studio adjacent to guest room. Airy room with high ceiling, very comfortable. Shares bath with guest room.

Excellent restaurants close by. Hiking in the Green and White Mountains is an easy drive. Other nearby attractions: Simon Pearce glass-blowing, Quechee Gorge, covered bridges, country fairs, King Arthur Flour store & cafe, fishing and Dartmouth's Hopkins Center for the Arts featuring film, concerts and art exhibits. Hanover, NH is right across the Connecticut River and has a multitude of restaurants, shopping, gelato, downtown movie theater showing current features. Five miles from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Our very friendly Labrador Retriever adds to the atmosphere at no additional charge.

PLEASE NOTE:
1. The tub is only 4ft. long and is tucked under the eaves. There is NO SHOWER. But there is a hand-held shower thing that allows you to wash hair, etc. If you are a tall or large person, you may find this to be a tight squeeze.
2. We are not really within walking distance of Dartmouth or DHMC -- unless you are young and hardy. Depending on your schedule and ours, we may be able to give you a ride to your interview or meeting on campus.
3. Ubers are starting to be more available. We have a few phone numbers you can try. For 100% convenience, consider renting a car.
4. Prices will be higher for Dartmouth graduation, Dartmouth Reunions and fall foliage season.
5. We are not handicap accessible. Room is at the top of fairly steep and narrow stair. NOT great for people with mobility issues.

Guest access
Guest bedroom & en suite bath.

Other things to note
The room is above the kitchen, up it's own staircase and tucked out of sight and hearing of the rest of the house. It is absolutely private, but there is no actual door to the bedroom. At night we will be on the other side of the house where we can't hear you and you can't hear us. (Earplugs available for late- or light-sleepers.)

As described, there is no stand-up shower in the private bathroom. This is due to the configuration of the knee wall/roof: there is no room for a full shower. The tub is a small, antique clawfoot with a nice hand-held shower. Nearly all of our guests find this a fun detail.

The house was built in 1830 when spaces were just smaller. This adds to the coziness we love. Ceilings are low in the guest room, so if you are tall, you may have to duck a bit.

We do not offer breakfast, but we will be very happy to make you a cup of coffee or tea to help you jump-start your day!

During your stay
We love getting to know our guests -- it's the real fun of Airbnb -- but if you prefer to have a romantic time with just your partner or are not a morning person and don't want to chit chat, that's okay too.

I work at home starting in the wee hours of the morning. This means I'm pretty focused and not always available for interaction at that time of day.

Randy and I are happy to give recommendations for restaurants, things to see, places to ski, etc.
