A lovely downstairs bedroom with adjacent full bathroom. Walk-out to the private backyard with a stunning view West of farm and hills. Room features a comfortable double bed. Large adjacent room available for writing, relaxing, or watching movies. Quiet neighborhood within walking distance to town. Cat in residence.
Peace and quiet for two! The view is quite amazing at any season so our deck gets a lot of use (off of the upstairs livingroom). You can have breakfast there if the weather is good, and it's nice on a starry evening.
Guests can make tea and coffee in the kitchen during the day and have access to the livingroom, deck, and yard. You can do laundry if staying longer than 3 days. There is parking for one car in the driveway. I have brochures on hand for local activities, restaurants, and events.
Interaction with Guests
I am around in the morning and available by cell but guests are on their own otherwise.
This is a dead-end street and usually very quiet. This street is where many of the mill owners of the town lived at the turn of the century so they could look down on the river and paper mills. After the mills shut, the barn or stable side of the terrace properties were sold and slowly smaller houses filled in. Mine is such a house. There are lovely trees lining the street and many of the old houses still remain.
AmTrack comes right to Bellows Falls each day. If you wish to arrive by train, it is possible to be picked up with prior arrangement. It is about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive into downtown from the house. There is a bus service that stops at the bottom of the hill that goes to Putney and Brattleboro. Most people drive so they can explore the area. Our location has access to the many interesting towns that surround us: Walpole, Saxtons River, Chester, Putney, Grafton, and Brattleboro.
Other Things to Note
Must like, or at least tolerate cats. I have one cat, who is most of the time outdoors except for winter.
Reasonably quiet after 10pm. No pets. No smoking on the property please.
Aime was an incredible host. She was extremely welcoming, friendly and willing to help with recommendations around the area.
We had a great time exploring Bellows Falls, Grafton, and Chester- and it was great to have a warm home with Aime's accommodations right around the corner! We would be back in a heartbeat.
Had a nice one night stay with Amie and Julian. The room was large and nicely furnished. The breakfast was exactly what I ordered: two poached eggs, bacon and scones with coffee. I enjoyed a stimulating conversation with Julian. And they allowed me to do three loads of laundry there. (I was checking my son out of boarding school and did not want to store his winter stuff all dirty.)
My husband and I had a delightful mini vacation at Amie's Cozy Modern House. The stunning view on her back deck is an understatement. We spent an evening viewing the sunset over the back fields and distant mountains. Amie is a warm and wonderful host. The home is beautifully decorated and an oasis of peace. The private bedroom has a comfortable bed and affords lots of privacy. The bathroom was for our sole use and had spa like features close to the bedroom.
The first night we were exhausted and retired early. The second night we had a delightful evening spent with Amie and her husband. Great conversations. They both are very well traveled.
I highly recommend this airbnb site and the host. Thank you Amie for providing us with a lovely rest. We will be back shortly. I personally can't wait to enjoy my morning tea out on the deck.
Very well-kept home with a beautiful view and conviena
nt to town and the Interstate highway.
Amie was very gracious and helpful.
I am a graphic designer with a penchant for interior design and interest in textiles. I love to travel and have lived in East Africa. I enjoy the beauty of this river valley and feel that I'm lucky to live surrounded by small towns, each with their own unique offerings. There is so much to do in the country! I enjoy the music and art scene in this area, and the focus on good food, natural surroundings, and community spirit. I have been part of a book group and the latest book we read is "Beautiful Ruins", a great summer read. I have a kayak and try to get out on the inlets and lakes. I also love to get to NYC and Boston to museums and visiting family and friends. It's a full life for me here in Vermont!
