About this listing
A sweet little cottage tucked away in the downtown of a vibrant Vermont community. Beautifully renovated, fully equipped, quiet, cool and funky. Featured in Vermont Magazine in 2011.
A 1925 stucco cottage hidden away behind a one-block-long Main Street. The downtown location is convenient to everything, yet it’s private, perched on a steep drop-off near a river, with views of surrounding mountains.
Originally the office for a grist mill, the Little Mill House has undergone a first-class renovation marrying modern systems with reclaimed and salvaged elements. Quiet and cozy, with never-ending on-demand hot water for the extra-deep soaking tub; washer and dryer, microwave, full-sized gas range; sweet and sunny Zen garden. Furnished in ‘vintage-mod-industrial’ style with top-quality organic-cotton bed and bath linens. Featured in the Spring 2011 issue of VERMONT MAGAZINE.
Two bedrooms with full-sized beds, another room with a twin, and a curtained-off area with another twin and under-bed storage. Shared bathing and toilet facilities divided into two rooms: one with toilet and sink, the other with soaking tub/shower and sink. Accommodates four to six people.
The Little Mill House is a strictly smoke-free and pet-free environment. WiFi in the house. No TV. No land line. Parking for two or three cars.
** ATTN. PRYT STUDENTS: Please contact me directly to inquire about space as Airbnb calendar does NOT necessarily reflect availability during PRYT courses. **
Full cottage and everything you need to have a great getaway. Sweet backyard Zen garden where sounds of the river and views of the mountains predominate.
Interaction with Guests
I like to stop in upon or just after arrival, and then check in once or twice during a stay.
A quaint, one-block-long Main Street district is at your doorstep, every convenience walkable. PRYT students note: PRYT center is two minutes walk away. In warm months, some of the states best swimming holes are just a three-minute drive away, or walk to some dipping spots. Easy trail to dramatic overlook begins nearby.
Other Things to Note
This is a small, remote town. Cell phone service can be spotty around here...
This is not a party house -- please respect the home and the neighbors. Six people maximum. Three cars maximum. Having fun and relaxation are mandatory here!
Upon opening the front door, we fell in love with the house. John has done an outstanding job making the house very easy to navigate as well as keeping it warm and inviting. Everywhere you turn there is another interesting architectural feature or spectacular photograph or great view of the mountains. John is quite available if you have any questions. The morning we left, John recommended a local swimming spot that was the highpoint of our stay in Vermont.
What a perfect place to spend the 4th of July! We were attending a wedding nearby, and it was delightful to have a quiet, beautiful hide-away. The view from the back yard is one of the best I've seen, and the house is beautiful. John was so accommodating, and clearly enjoys sharing this house with others. Highly recommended!
I only wish we lived closer so we could visit more often!
Thanks for the weekend, John. Beautiful place. We hope to make it back someday.

We had a wonderful stay at Little Mill House. The location was perfect and the house was exactly like the pictures...so comfortable and cozy. John came by to see if we needed anything...which we didn't because the kitchen was stocked and we were even able to use food items in the pantry. Highly recommend Little Mill House when in Bristol!
The Little Mill House was an amazing place to spend our holiday weekend! The space is exactly as depicted in the pictures- very clean and beautifully furnished. The location is perfect as well- the house is a stone's throw away from Main St. and within walking distance of most attractions in Bristol, yet this does not detract from the sense of privacy and quiet that we experienced at the mill house. John was a great host and gave us many helpful recommendations. We hope to come back soon!
The Little Mill House is an ideal place to stay in Bristol, half a block from main street. It is very smartly and stylishly decorated, with all the amenities you could ask for. Very clean, bright and airy. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed walking to everything in town. We had a wonderful dinner at the Bobcat Cafe, and a great breakfast at the Bristol Bakery. John made the booking and arrival painless.

About the Host, John
Vermont is my adopted home. I've been here off-and-on since 1982, though I've lived in San Fran, NYC and DC, too. Former professional life as a journalist and non-profit executive. Now a small-time, self-employed landlord with a dozen residential, commercial and artistic tenants. I've spent the last ten years renovating several buildings, including an old grist mill and a huge 1916 Ford Motor dealership. Just finished reno on a cottage, now available as a vacation rental and listed on Airbnb. I am clean and quiet, a non-drinker, a Vipassana meditator, and lover of music and art, good food and conversation, hot springs, and my 1955 Plymouth station wagon.
