Other Things to Note
Our Labradoodle, Scout, will help us welcome you.
We need quiet between 8 pm and 7 am because we have a 1 year old.
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Our room was very comfortable and clean - a fine bed and good sense of privacy, peace and quiet. We also had no trouble finding it (although we were almost next door for a wedding that day which was quite a coincidence!) We were also treated to a healthy and yummy breakfast.
The whole family was eager to welcome me. All of the rooms were very clean. The location was serene. In short, all factors of the hospitality were amazing. My stay was highly commendable.
Due to a last minute change, we unfortunately didn't get to meet Ellen as she and her family were out of town. She emailed me beforehand with instructions on how to get inside, and we were all set. She had a note for us on the counter and a binder at the foot of the bed with maps and area info. That's all we needed.
The pictures don't do her home justice -- it's lovely! The farmhouse kitchen and the garden had me drooling... I'm such a sucker for old homes. ;)
We were very comfortable, slept well, and unfortunately didn't get to try the outdoor shower on the back deck -- we wanted to but overslept! The house is secluded in the woods, and their gardens are full of flowers... Gorgeous.
She was easy to communicate with, and we'd love to stay again when we come back to VT.
Oh, and don't worry about no wifi -- hubby was getting good AT&T signal on his phone (including data), and I had good voice service and slow data on Verizon. We were totally fine. ;) Don't let that keep you from staying here!
Thank you again, Ellen!
Our stay at On a Vermont Hilltop was great - it's in a gorgeous wooden spot a few miles from Putney's town center. Ellen and her family were very accommodating and friendly - the bed and room were cozy, and the outdoor shower is a MUST. A fabulous option for a Vermont getaway.
Ellen and her lovely family have an amazing quiet and cool space tucked into the backroads. The bed was great, the directions easy, and the stars were eye-popping! I would definitely stay there again.
