The kitchen and living room are a shared space in the downstairs region of the home. Laundry room is available upon request.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the date(s) booked, we may or may not be present during your stay. Our rooms are in the downstairs region of the home and we have two young children. If this is a concern, please message us before booking.
Lovely, rural neighborhood. Near the famous Farnum Hill Reserve and Poverty Lane Orchards.
Beautiful summer blooms, to die for Fall foliage, white, snowy Winters, and a moist, thawing Spring with running creek behind our house.
The Upper Valley area has a modest public transit system called Advance Transit. It is free and I have heard that it is fairly good, but that it has a limited schedule and route. I have not utilized it myself and cannot speak first-hand about how good or bad it is. Unfortunately, it does not go to our neighborhood, but can be relied on if you are already in the towns of Lebanon and Hanover (on the New Hampshire side of the river), or White River Junction and Hartford (on the Vermont side of the river). More information on their routes and schedules can be found online.
Because the public transit does not go to our home, we recommend either a car rental, or utilizing the taxi service to get to our house. We are out and about quite a bit ourselves and should we be in a position to help you with a ride, we gladly will.
During the Spring, Summer and Fall, a rental car with front-wheel drive should be sufficient. However, the winter months make for difficult driving conditions. We strongly recommend all-wheel drive vehicles with snow tires. We do the best we can to keep the driveway clear should a bad snowstorm arise; however cars can still get stuck. If conditions are particularly bad and you do not have an all-wheel drive vehicle, we will recommend you park on the street and walk up to the house (our driveway is about 200 feet, or, 61 meters).
Other Things to Note
Two spacious rooms equipped with queen-sized beds with hypoallergenic foam pad & pillowcases. Extra sheets, towels, pillows, and blankets are provided. Air purifier if desired (stored in the closet), window A/C unit(s), as well as an ironing board and iron.
Kitchen has microwave, fridge, gas stove, cookware, dishes, and dishwasher.
We keep a variety of tea and coffee on hand for the guests. In the morning, guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever beverages we have (typically tea, coffee, or milk) and any other breakfast goodies (typically instant oatmeal or cereal, boiled eggs and fruit).
Turn heat down to 65, and A/C off when away from the home.
Turn lights off when not in use.
No parties. No shoes indoors.
Howdy! I am Kate, and together with my husband John, we run a quaint homestead-like lifestyle on 2-acres in Lebanon, NH. We are located about 15-30 minutes from Dartmouth College, depending on traffic. We have two children and live busy lives. I am working toward my doctoral degree in computer engineering and John is a nurse. We strive to live a sustainable lifestyle through growing our own food, raising chickens, composting food waste, recycling and living resourcefully. We love to travel and spend time in the great outdoors.
