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.

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.

This is a small, remote town. Cell phone service can be spotty around here...

Two bedrooms with full-sized beds and the Cozy sleeping space with twin bed are upstairs, as are the bath and toilet facilities. A small bedroom with twin bed is on the ground floor. There are spiral stairs but they are wide and not steep.

The Little Mill House is a hidden gem. As someone who has lived in Vermont, I was struck by its charm, authenticity, and convenience. Everything is within walking distance (grocery store, a cafe, restaurants), the view is unbelievable, and having a fully stocked kitchen made it easy for us to cook and relax to make a home away from home. I would highly recommend this place!

great location: in the center of the town, 30mins drive to Sugarbush resort. Clean, comfortable and quiet house that nicely accommodated 6 of us. would have been better if having a TV but it's totally fine. :)

We loved staying at the Little Mill House and the foliage was spectacular! We greatly enjoyed the private terrace and Zen garden. The location is very convenient. We would definitely stay again.

The house is lovely and very comfortable. The pictures don't do it justice! Super clean and perfectly laid out for a small group. It's a very creative space to relax in, and the views were beautiful as well. The location is perfect, right behind the main street, with restaurants and cafes just steps away. The house has everything one could need to enjoy some time in this gorgeous little town.

John User ProfileJohn is a superhost.

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.
