About this listing
Rent a room with private bath in our lovely 1850's farmhouse in rural Taftsville, Vermont. Close to historic Woodstock VT, Hanover NH, and many ski areas, we welcome guests with a brand new queen sized bed, self-serve breakfast, and warm hospitality
Rent a room with private bath in our lovely 1850's old farmhouse. The room in on the second floor. It has a brand new queen-size bed, shelves, desk, bedside table, books and bookcase, and a small closet. The bathroom with shower is private and directly across the hall.
The room also contains a small fridge, coffee maker, teapot, and toaster. We stock the room with self-serve light breakfast or snack items including freshly ground coffee, tea, half-and-half, bread, jam, butter, and fruit.
This is a great getaway for an individual or pair. We can accommodate a small family, too, with a foam mattress on the floor.
Our guest bedroom and private bathroom are reached via a back staircase out of our "mud room", so you can come and go without coming into the main house, unless you want to visit with us.
You have a self-serve breakfast area in your room. If you would like to cook a more substantial meal, you are welcome to use our kitchen. Please speak with us first so we can arrange timing.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet new people and share ideas about restaurants, walks, and fun outings in Woodstock and the Upper Valley. We also understand that sometimes weary travelers prefer not to interact much with hosts, and we honor that as well - it's up to you!
Taftsville village is part of historic Woodstock, a shire town famed for its picturesque beauty. Taftsville is three miles south of the Woodstock green and its fine restaurants, galleries, antique stores, library, movie theater and shopping. We are also only twenty-five minutes west of Hanover, including Dartmouth College with its museums and theaters.
The Taftsville Trails are right out our back door, offering walking, running, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. While only 1/4 mile from Route 4, we live on a dirt road also great for walking, running and biking. In summer, our flower gardens are in bloom and there are blueberries and raspberries for the picking.
In winter Killington Mountain is 25 minutes west on Route 4 and there are other ski areas closer to us including Suicide Six and Quechee.
In Fall, the colors along the backroads and River Road are spectacular. Recently reconstructed Taftsville Covered Bridge, just a quarter mile away, is one of the most photographed places in Vermont. The Appalachian Trail is only a few miles away.
Parking is included.
Woodstock Village is accessible by bike, about a 30 minute ride each way.
No smoking please. Inquire before bringing pets.
We had a very comfortable stay at Tim and Delia's. They are very friendly and helpful and made us feel like we were staying with friends! The location is very convenient for exploring both Quechee and Woodstock. They have a lovely garden with fruit trees and vegetables (and even shared some produce with us :)). The accommodation offers good privacy (if that's important for you) as its not part of the main house, but connected through the mud-room. The room itself is compact and basic (as the pic shows) but our hosts took care of every little detail to make our stay comfortable, such as a tea/coffee/bread and spreads for breakfast (and the bread was fantastic!).
All in all, great experience and we would definitely go back.
Accueil chaleureux et très sympathique de la part de Tim. Chambre tout à fait conforme à sa description, lit très confortable, chambre calme et indépendante.
Nous nous sommes sentis incroyablement bien accueilli par Tim et sa compagne. La maison est magnifique, perdue au bout d'un petit chemin au milieu des arbres avec un superbe jardin.
La chambre est calme et chaleureuse et Tim avait laissé à notre intention café, thé et fruit frais.
Un vrai moment de sereinité ce qui nous a fait beaucoup de bien.
Par ailleurs la région est superbe et c'est une halte idéale près de woodstock.
We could not have felt more welcomed to Tim and Delia's cozy home. The space is very private, and we were surprised to find that we had a living room in addition to the bedroom and bathroom. The bed is so comfy! We loved having a fridge and continental breakfast (provided). The property was full of blooming perennials and was an easy drive to Woodstock Village. We greatly enjoyed our stay!
Our hosts made us feel very welcome, from the fresh flowers from the garden in the room, to the fresh picked blueberries with the breakfast (also from the garden), to the helpful information about finding local places of interest. Tim and Delia were extremely pleasant and available and even their cat is friendly. The book nook is inviting with tea and an upholstered chair within reach of the book shelves.
The accomodations were private with your own suite with living room, bedroom and bathroom. Tim was a good host.
Tim had greeted me upon my arrival and showed me my living space in the home and his beautiful garden. Tim and his wife were away during my stay so I did not get to visit much with them, but they left me tea, coffee, juice, delicious bread and jam. I also enjoyed the fresh berries from their garden every morning! Since it was very quiet in the house I was so grateful for the companionship of their cat, Tom. He was such a social snugglebug!
I would recommend staying with Tim if you are traveling in the Woodstock area.
About the Host, Tim
My wife and I and our three children have lived in this wonderful house since 1995. We are self-employed. My wife is a professional facilitator and I am a freelance writer. We both travel often for our work. We have a large garden with lots of blueberry and raspberry bushes in the summer and apples in the fall. We like to bike on the dirt roads, fish in the river, go to the movies at town hall theater and go dancing at the local contradances. It's a great neighborhood here and accessible to much of the best of what Vermont has to offer including trails and hiking,swimming, shopping and site seeing in Woodstock, skiing at Killington and leaf peeping in the Fall.
