This spacious studio apartment is located in the former Swedish Congregational Church in historic Swedeville, a secluded hilly neighborhood built by Swedish immigrants in the 1800's. For years it housed Rick and Liza’s stained glass studio, which they have now lovingly and creatively transformed into a residence.

The rental is minutes from the interstate and one mile from downtown Brattleboro, but the neighborhood has a rural and somewhat European flavor to it.

The space
This 20x20 rental has ten foot high pressed tin ceilings, arched windows, stained glass, a comfortable queen sized bed as well as a twin sized day bed which converts to a king sized bed. The space offers a private subway-tiled bathroom with shower.
The kitchenette is equipped with a sink (new this year) fridge with freezer (also new) induction hot plate, toaster oven, microwave, french press coffee maker, coffee grinder, tea pot, dishes and utensils. We provide the fixings for coffee and tea for your use.
We have a lovely vegetable and flower garden. You can expect to be greeted by roses or peonies or morning glories depending on the season. The October foliage is outstanding in this area and this neighborhood has some strikingly brilliant trees. During the winter when it snows, the neighborhood looks wonderful coated in sparkling white!

Please note that there is a long term rental apartment above this space. You may on occasion hear footsteps on the stairs above. We soundproofed the space a year ago so any sound is minimal.

Where you’ll be

Brattleboro, Vermont, United States

Brattleboro has regularly been recognized as one of the best small towns and best art towns in the USA. It is home to galleries and thrift stores, to a great farmers' market and a monthly gallery walk, to a wonderful youth theatre, a jazz center, and a wide variety of restaurants and shops. Swedeville is a couple of blocks from nature trails for hiking or cross country skiing depending on season. Living Memorial Park, which has a small ski slope and a swimming pool, is a mile away. There is kayak and canoe rental at the junction of the West River and the Connecticut river about 3 miles away. There are many areas for swimming and hiking nearby as well. We are 10 minutes from the Marlboro Music Festival and less than an hour away from Mount Snow and only a bit further from other downhill ski areas.

Your hosts Liza King and Rick Neumann are retired architectural stained glass artists and long time Brattleboro residents. They closed their studio a few years ago, and spent the next year making the former church into a beautiful, comfortable and functional living space (where we now reside). They have made a point to pay homage to the building's architectural details and its Swedish past. Rick and Liza love taking long walks, gardening, traveling and playing ping pong, among other things. We love living in Brattleboro, a wonderful small town that is both cosmopolitan and a little funky, with a vibrant arts culture and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Connecticut River Valley and the Green Mountains. We look forward to hosting Airbnb guests.
