About this listing
A recently renovated studio with a historic charm. Huge, romantic stone fireplace, tasteful, comfortable furnishings and decor, in Brattleboro in a secluded location next to the forest. Five min. drive to downtown, near fine dining and shopping.
In the 50's the house belonged to the legendary Ely Culbertson- father of American Contract Bridge, the wildly popular game in the mid 20th century. The beautiful wood-paneled walls, hardwood floors, view of our gardens, full bath, tasteful decor and a modern kitchen area make this space unique, welcoming and warm. Internet and cable TV are provided.
It is a fully equipped apartment with kitchen, bathroom, own entrance and parking.
Interaction with Guests
The owners live next door, so while there is complete privacy with your own entrance and parking we are also right there for any problems or questions or if you just want to join us for a beverage or a BBQ in the garden.
It's a very good location, near major thoroughfares yet secluded and quiet. Everything is close to here, but the same time it feels like you live in the forest. Steps away from the Brattleboro Farmers' Market, activities at Living Memorial Park, minutes from downtown Brattleboro.
There is a small bus regional bus. The house, while in a quiet spot, is very close to the major thoroughfares of Rt. 9 and I-91. It is within walking distance to recreation facilities (swimming pool, tennis, softball fields, hiking and picnicking) and also you can walk to shopping and dining. It is a pleasant 20-minute walk to downtown Brattleboro. There is also a taxi service in Brattleboro.
Other Things to Note
I allow pets. So if you have allergies my place is not for you.
We only ask that our guests enjoy the property quietly since there are others living in the same building. Other than that our property is here to be enjoyed!
About the Host, Julia
I am an easy going host, my rental units are my primary job. I live in one of the apartments on the same property. It makes me almost always available and easy to reach, If I don't answer on the phone it means I am in the garden taking care of my flowers. . I speak Spanish, Russian and English. I love dogs and cats so they are welcome too.
I can't live without good conversations, travel to the warm countries and sleeping late. I don't like TV and novels, I believe life is much more interesting then art in general. Did I tell already that I am an artist?
