The Space

A FULL SUITE WITH PRIVATE ENTRANCE, ONLY $140 PER NIGHT! Pleasant Street Suite offers the best of Vermont lodgings for a classic New England vacation, with great snowshoeing and x-ctry skiing right out the door plus five downhill resorts within just 30 miles! You'll have far more space, amenities and privacy than most inns or hotels can offer, for a remarkably low price. With parking right outside, the comfort and independence of living in a vibrant village neighborhood, and available yet unobtrusive proprietors, it's the balance of entertainment, adventure, solitude and service that inspires guests to come back often and tell their friends.

This is a private, spacious, 530'-sq., contemporary yet cozy vacation flat in Southeastern Vermont, situated at the far end of a handsome arts-and-crafts era home in a quiet but groovy residential village (great taverns and live music right around the corner). The suite sleeps up to four (even five, with a twin mattress we can bring in) and features a big bedroom with queen bed plus living room with futon couch ($30 per extra person/night for use as a 2nd bed). There is wireless DSL, DirectTV/HD/DVD and an iPod dock. A lovely kitchen nook offers fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, full set of china, flatware, glassware and mixing bowls. The sunny bathroom has a big oval tub/shower, the living room has a 7'-tall arched window, and there are ventilating, louvered skylights in every room plus your own private balcony and entrance.

For dining, The kitchen nook, which seats four, has a fridge, microwave, electric kettle, coffee pot, toaster, a full set of china, flatware, water glasses, wine glasses (and champagne glasses!), mugs and mixing bowls. There are two options on the dishes front: guests can put their dishes on a tray on the balcony at the end of the day and I wash and return them by morning, and there's also a sponge and dishwashing liquid under the bathroom sink for doing a few things quickly.

In terms of dining, there are several options literally right around the corner: a restaurant that has a cozy tavern room with great pub food and a formal dining room with more elegant fare, plus patio and garden seating where you can order from either menu; another pub with a terrific menu and often live music on weekends; and a village market with great deli counter and full groceries, both gourmet and standard, that guests often use for bringing meals and treats back to the suite. And a few miles up the road in several directions are oodles of other fantastic restaurants, bistros, diners and delis.

Once you book the suite and Air gives us each other's emails, we can send a full list of local dining, entertainment, outdoor fun, etc. so you can plan your week ahead of time if you like.

For entertainment and adventure, also around the corner are great playhouse theaters, hiking, biking, running track, tennis courts, swimming, kayaking, picnicking, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.

A short drive away are countless more cultural venues, music clubs, restored vintage movie houses, retail shops/outlets, Alpine resorts, major rivers, lakes and endless opportunities for relaxation and fun.

At only $140 per night, this is an affordable, fully appointed, perfectly located and completely private alternative to noisy, high-priced inns and hotels, with parking right outside your door plus the comforts, character and independence of life in a vibrant village neighborhood (ask us about our special long-term rates too!). We're right next to Vermont Academy and a short drive from Brattleboro, Grafton, Putney, Chester, Bellows Falls, Okemo, Stratton and Magic Mountain--the best of Vermont skiing, shopping, dining and culture, for romantic getaways, business travel and family fun.

The Neighborhood

Classic New England village and we're on the widest, oldest street with sidewalks, beautiful old homes and huge mature maples. We are half a block from Main Street, where there is a country village market with a great deli, arts and craft shops, two pubs, a formal restaurant, post office, a Catholic church, the Saxtons River Historical Society Museum, and a beautiful rocky grotto with swimming hole in the Saxtons River itself!

And around the corner is Vermont Academy, with hiking trails, a terrific running track, lots of green fields in spring and summer and, in winter, awesome Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating!

In autumn the village and surrounding hills, forests and meadows transform into one big glorious postcard.

In a nutshell, it's pretty much paradise, year round.

  • Annie was a wonderful host - very sweet and accommodating. Her place was the perfect place for a weekend getaway and close enough to Okemo for skiing.

    March 2014
  • Annie was great! We had to change our arrival day at the last minute due to weather and it was no problem at all.

    February 2014
  • Annie was a great host. She was able to get the place cleaned and ready for us with short notice. Even though the space had a VERY rare plumbing issue during the coldest weather of the year, Annie handled the situation well and even found us another location in town to stay. The place itself was great and perfect for a weekend getaway. We will definitely be back!

    Response from Annie:

    Thanks for being so flexible in what was the coldest weather I'd ever experienced since I moved to Vermont 12 years ago (from California, which means I am learning about how to handle such things as ice storms, ice pellets and freezing pipes)! All is well now and I know how to avoid the same thing next time!!! Glad you'll be returning and see you soon! You guys are so accommodating and I so appreciated you understanding the occasional wrath of mother nature in New England! -- Annie, Pleasant Street Suite

  • The apartment was cozy, clean, and well-kept. Annie was super nice, and the surrounding towns are a lot of fun to explore. The two of us and our dog had a great stay, would love to visit again.

    December 2013
  • We had a lovely one-night stay at Annie's flat. It's located in a great area to admire the autumn colours. Annie was very communicative and very helpful. Saxton's River and Bellows Falls are both nice places for a wander around.

    October 2013
  • Wonderful private apt. Very clean and well kept. Annie made our stay easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend!

    September 2013

    September 2013
  • Such a beautiful apartment in a gorgeous little Vermont town! Annie's place is really well set up, clean, and fool proof directions for everything. Really had such a great time, and Annie recommended some great places to eat and see the sights. Awesome!

    March 2013
  • Adorable pet friendly flat steps from drinks and dining and a short drive from excellent Vermont ski resorts. Phenomenal host Annie was personable and accommodating leaving us fresh baked muffins and guides galore for things to do in the area. Would definitely recommend it to anyone craving the quiet comfort of Vermont!

    March 2013
  • We had an absolutely wonderful time at the pleasant st suite for the weekend! It was roomy but cozy, rustic feel with a modern twist. There is a kitchen nook with dishes, microwave, and fridge for preparing small meals and plenty of info about the town and activities to do. Annie came up to say hi, brought us delicious muffins and helped us find a place to snowshoe. First air bnb experience-would definitely do this again and come back here!!

About
I moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area in 2001 and, having visited relatives in Maine since childhood, I already had an abiding love for New England and first-hand knowledge of what makes holidays here truly meaningful. That perspective greatly informs my goal to make the experience of every Pleasant Street Suite guest as ideal and customized as possible. Having first encountered Vermont while on vacation, I also know that spacious, well-appointed, clean and comfortable lodgings are crucial to any fun and fulfilling getaway. As a travel, arts and culture writer for various publications, including New York Times, the Boston Globe, Associated Press, Art in America, etc.--as well as having had a weekly column in Vermont's oldest newspaper, the Rutland Herald, for 3 years--I know first-hand all that Vermont has to offer. There are so many types of diversions--from galleries and antique shows to kayaking and skiing--and I have heaps of info on the best options in the region, for individuals, couples, families and/or folks here on business. This is a very special corner of the world and, as both an urban refugee and travel writer, I've come to know it inside and out, so just ask and I'll be happy to help!
