Lovely queen bed in a bright and cheerful house. One of two rooms the other is a king found at Vermont Bike, Hike and Ski. All part of a beautiful 3 bedroom home tucked into a 30 year old barn. A wonderfully warm and inviting place to read or stay.

The Space

A lovely barn built in 1990 as a wood shop and then converted to a lovely home. Warm and inviting no matter what the season. When it is freezing outside the natural light makes it a warm place to sit and just look at the view. When warmer the back porch is a great place to watch the wildlife and sometimes domesticated cattle. If so inclined you can wander to the pond and watch the beavers at work.

Guest Access

Guests will come and go using the front door of the house well hidden behind a barn door. A key will be provided so folks can come and go at will. Under an hour from Middlebury, Dartmouth, Vermont Law School and Norwich.

Interaction with Guests

Bill the host will be around at some point during the stay and at night as well. A very lovely but casual place. There are actually two rooms one a queen and one a king so one may meet folks from other parts of the world during their stay and or other friends of the host.

Your Host



Rochester, Vermont, United States · Member since May 2011

Middle aged father of three all of whom have been launched. Have had an interesting and very diverse career that has allowed me to travel and work within Europe and Asia as well as throughout the US. Interests from non traditional farming, optics, high speed manufacturing, all forms of energy, traditional as well as green, carpentry and design. Presently working as a consultant in the photonics business and restoring older Vermont homes. Love to travel and get to know different cultures and people. Prefer b&bs or renting apartments to staying in hotels. I enjoy traveling in Europe where English is not the first language. Figuring out how to get around and then taking in the local architecture which says so much about what is important for me. I love good conversation, good wine, a great cup of coffee, unusual cheeses and breads and i am always trying the local food where ever i travel. Dinner is about having a good conversation and discussing the things that are important in life. I also enjoy just sitting out on the porch watching the stars or the sun setting on the mountains listening to nature.
