About This Listing
Sunny studio apartment overlooking 1.5 acres along the Whetstone Brook in Brattleboro. Full kitchen and bath. 15-minute walk to Main Street. Private entrance with back Dutch door opening into gardens & wooded path to the brook. Magical and peaceful.
Lawrence and Eva provided a lovely and welcoming studio, that was clean and well-furnished. The brook nearby provided soothing white noise (much better than the traffic of the city that we were used to). There was even fresh eggs, milk, orange juice, almond milk, tea, coffee, jam, butter and even gluten-free bagels and rice cakes (I'm celiac).
Coordination beforehand was effortless, even though we ended up arriving much later than originally planned. The studio was left open with a welcome sign, and even a made bed.
We didn't see much of Lawrence or Eva, but that was by choice; this was a private getaway sort of weekend, and it was a sheer delight. It was an easy walk to downtown Brattleboro, but we spent a lot of time in the studio, just relaxing.
I highly recommend this space and Lawrence and Eva as hosts. I hope we'll get a chance to go back and stay there again.
We had a great stay with Lawrence and Eva. Their studio was very comfortable and charming. Arriving late, they had kindly made up the futon for us and had left breakfast for the next morning in the fridge. Great first AirBnB experience, thank you!
Amazing nook surrounded by nature. Postcard Vermont experience. The hosts could not be more charming or helpful. Highly recommended.
Very hospitable host. A peaceful retreat, where you hear only the crowing of the rooster and the flowing of the brook. A view from the window of brook and mountains. Conveniently, it's minutes from downtown and from the highway. I'd like to go back, and to stay longer next time.
Excellent host. The studio was lovely and stocked with excellent food. Very helpful and kind!
Lawrence was easy to communicate with and gave great directions to their place. Lawrence was there to greet us when we arrived. He made us feel welcome and comfortable. The special effort to provide breakfast goodies of juice, milk, coffee, local granola, assortment of yogurts and bread as well as fresh eggs were appreciated. Even though the weather was cold and rainy for part of the time, their place was cozy and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
