About this listing
Experience the charm and comfort of a fully renovated Cape built in 1793. Five miles from Dartmouth College and Hanover N.H. in the beautiful Connecticut River Valley.
There is no end to the wonderful things to do in this area including The Hopkins Center for the Arts, Hood Museum, hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and Farmer's markets featuring fresh local foods. We are only miles away from Vermont and the historic town of Woodstock, The Billings Museum, Quechee Gorge, Simon Pearce Glass Blowers and Resturant , world famous King Arthur Flour, and the Montshire Museum, one of the ten best science museums in the country.
I have lived here since 1981 and know the area well enough to be able to help plan a wonderful stay. Also have my own Gourmet Food Business for the past 30 years.
Sept. and Oct. known as fall foliage is the most popular time to visit our area. Winter and Summer are equally enjoyable and offer their own activities.
I look forward to sharing my special place with you.
Large sitting room w/far infared sauna (dry sauna)
All on second floor, very private.

I would be happy to share all I know about the area and help plan where to go and where to eat.
Every stay I have with Airbnb somehow manages to top the one before. Phyllis's home is wonderful. She is beyond gracious, and there is plenty of space just for her guests. She is respectful of your privacy, but open to chatting. Take the time to get to know her. She is a very special woman. Her property is gorgeous, and she even let me pick my own fresh berries for breakfast! The bed in her guest room is the most comfortable one I have ever slept in (even better than my own!). It is about a seven-minute drive to Dartmouth, and I actually preferred staying a bit out of the center of town.
What a great host and room. Phyllis was very accommodating and the room was spacious, clean, and better than described. The house is a fine example of a New England home that has been adapted over the years for modern living, all the while honoring its colonial roots. I hope to stay again!
We had a wonderful time! Phyllis' home is charming, clean, spacious, and located a short 5 minute drive to downtown Hanover - perfect location for us. We brought our 14 month old daughter and there was plenty of room for all of us. She is friendly and interesting but respects her guests' privacy as well. Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back!
I reserved Phyllis' room for my Mom and Aunt who were visiting for graduation weekend. They loved it, calling it a 'story book home' with lots of space for them. Phyllis was very communicative with check in, check out, and everything in between to make sure we had a seamless process. She even offered to make them breakfast. I would definitely recommend her place!
The host, Phyllis, was so gracious. She made me feel at home right away. The bedroom was lovely and extremely comfortable and the bathroom had a generous supply of towels. Phyllis made a delicious breakfast with fruit and yogurt, local bread and goat cheese, and great coffee. I enjoyed every minute of my stay and she will be my first choice if I'm in the area again.
Phyllis was a wonderful host and made us feel instantly welcome. Her lovely home is tucked away in the New Hampshire woods, but the bedroom still managed to have lovely natural light. The spacious sitting room in addition to the convenient private bathroom added up to a perfect stay for us. On top of that was an excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and great coffee. We came and went as we pleased through the private entrance.
This Charming Cape with the Charming Host was PERFECT! We went to Hanover to visit parents and needed a place nearby to call home for 3 days. Phyllis greeted us warmly and showed us around her beautiful home. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves, including a lovely, well lit bedroom with a very comfortable bed and soft sheets, in addition to a sitting room with a small refrigerator that came in handy. The bathroom included 2 sinks, a shower/tub with great water pressure, and generous soft towels.
Phyllis provided us with delicious breakfasts of fresh strawberries, yogurt, granola, EXCELLENT coffee, toast, and eggs on request. And she provided us with cool, fresh lime water every day.
The grounds are beautiful, with lovely gardens. And she ordered up perfect sunny weather for us. Phyllis is a kind, generous host. Thanks, Phyllis. We'll be back.
Hi Shelly and David,
Wow! What a great review. Made me want to go there!! Loved meeting both of you. Very special to have such appreciation from a guest. I do feel like I want to make people comfortable and enjoy their stay and want to come back.
Sounds like I succeeded! That makes me happy.
Hope you have a good trip home.
