Comfortable, first floor bedroom and half-bath in a house with a park-like setting. Large sunny yard with flower and vegetable gardens on a wooded 5 acres along the Green River, only 10 miles to Brattleboro, 3 miles to Marlboro College and half hour to Mount Snow.
The location is very private and quiet with great hiking, biking, or snowshoeing right from the front door. It's off-the-beaten-path, but well worth the drive to experience the true Vermont. The sun-filled kitchen overlooking the yard is the perfect place to have a cup of coffee or tea. There is also a room on the second floor for additional guests at $45/night.
Guests will have access to the full house including living room with wood stove, a full bath and kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I love to share my enthusiasm for southern Vermont with guests and will provide a breakfast with eggs, baked goods and fresh fruit.
My favorite aspect to living in Halifax is the rural setting and, of course, the river! This is a wonderful area for prime foliage viewing. And when the snow falls, you can snowshoe right from the front door!
I ask that there is no smoking in the house or on the property.
My partner Kim and I had a very sweet time at Susan's place. Susan is a warm and engaged host. She was extremely generous during our time there, sharing some goodies she had baked for the holidays and taking us on a hike into the woods beyond her property. WE felt very much at home. Susan's house is extremely quiet and comfortable - we loved the wood stove in the living room. The room we stayed in is small and cozy - fine for two people. Susan gave us excellent suggestions about things to do in town. Overall we had a very positive experience here.
We just loved Susan, and her lovely, comfortable home. She made sure we had directions to her home well in advance. She was so sweet, thoughtful and kind, and warm. We didn't want to leave. She asked if we wanted coffee in the morning, which we so appreciated. Her biscotti were Devine, too! We are plotting how we can go back for a visit. I highly recommend a visit!
Susan was a WONDERFUL host. I enjoyed my stay with her.
Not only is she a lovely person but she made me feel so welcome. I didn't have my trip entirely planned so she had many great suggestions.
The room is exactly as pictured and it has a nice large closet and a large dresser. You have two windows that draw in sunlight every morning so it was nice waking up to that. You should also expect to wake up to either coffee/tea and some fresh fruit. The place is situated close to Brattleboro and Wilmington and it's tucked away so it's a nice little retreat. I took a run one morning right outside the house and it was just lovely. I would without a doubt recommend staying with her as I would definitely do it again if I visited Vermont.
Susan was a perfect host, easy to communicate with, good directions, accommodating, respectful, and an excellent baker! The room was as described and the secluded spot lovely, but very close to Marlboro College and Brattleboro. Comfortable, cosy and clean room with toilet and sink. Susan got up early to provide a delicious breakfast. We stayed just one night. A very welcoming Vermont feeling!
We had a lovely time at Susan's. We slept wonderfully in the cozy room and really enjoyed the muffins and fruit salad at breakfast--she even gave us some for the road! We appreciated her being flexible about our arrival time and easygoing in general.
Susan was extremely welcoming and accomodating! I felt right at home in her serene environment. Close enough to downtown, yet far enough away to rejuvenate.
Susan was a wonderful host. She was kind, allowed us to use her kitchen and shower, and gave space when necessary. Her house can be a bit difficult to find however. She did send me directions in a word document, but I wasn't able to open up the document on my phone, and my gps lost service, so we got a bit lost. If you print out the directions she gives you ahead of time, I'm sure you will be fine. Very quiet, and beautiful area to be in. Very secluded. Thank you so much Susan!
I enjoy being active, whether it's traveling around the country or just going for a run or hike around my house. Weekdays I am at a local middle/high school teaching Family & Consumer Science. Weekends I am usually working in the garden or enjoying the best that southern Vermont has to offer. I feel truly blessed to live in such a beautiful and charming area, and enjoy sharing it with guests.
