The Space

Our warm and comfortable guest house sits on 75 acres of natural mountain forest... replete with several brooks and lots of waterfalls!
A completely renovated century-old house, we are centrally located (just 12 miles from Montpelier, the capital city), and yet enjoy being "away-from-it-all".

This listing is for a guest room (double) with shared bath at "Three Covered Bridges Guest House" listed elsewhere on this site.

Guest room is in the main part of the house, on the second floor and shares bath, kitchen, and living area (all on first floor) with the hostess and her 1 kitty. The first floor bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower curtain. (It requires stepping up into, and down out of, ... just to let you know!)
Rate is $77.00 per night dbl. occupancy. This INCLUDES the 9% VT room tax.
This room is part of our private residence... stays are limited to 1-3 nights.For longer stays, please check availability for our private apartment listed elsewhere on this site.
We can not do full breakfasts at this time, but coffee, tea, fruit, cereal, and muffins or rolls are served.

On the Northfield side of the mountain are the 3 covered bridges that inspired our name. You will pass under them if you come up the mountain from the Northfield side.
Norwich University is on that side of the mountain. (Norwich U. is the first private military school in the country and home of N.U.'s famous Hockey games.)
The capital city of Montpelier, with many delicious eateries including the New England Culinary Institute and their amazing and photogenic meals, is just 12 miles up the road.
Many towns with real old-fashioned Vermont flavor: Northfield, Barre, Plainfield, Randolph, and more can be explored from this side of the 'hill'.

Heading west off the mountain you'll find:
Sugarbush / Mad River / and Stowe ski areas close by (20-40 min.)
Waterbury, famous for their assortment of micro-brewery beers, many great restaurants, and attractions such as Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory and the Cold Hollow Cider Mill are over this way in a 20-30 minute drive.
And you would head this way to visit Burlington, Vermont's largest town, on beautiful Lake Champlain (home of the University of Vermont) about 50 miles away.

You can also choose to just spend some quiet time here!
Enjoy a drink on the front porch and watch the moon rise over the distant mountain. Wake up to the soothing sound of the brooks and birds. Hike, read in the garden, or try your hand at bird watching. In the winter, sledding and snowshoeing are fun right here on the property.

Rides in from the train station in Montpelier can be arranged.

Price includes 9% VT MEALS & ROOMS TAX

  • Beautiful house in a pristine setting. Dawn was very accomodating, with flexible check-in time. The house was clean and very nice. The surroundings were fantastatic. We had breakfast with Dawn and then spent an hour or so walking around the property exploring the streams and waterfalls. The swimming hole would be great on a hot summer day!

  • What a wonderful weekend we had at the Three Covered Bridges guest house. Dawn was fantastic. She made sure we knew where we were going before we left and showed us the house when we arrived. Each morning we would take our tea/coffee and continental breakfast downstairs and chat with her, which was such a nice way to start the day. The house itself is beautiful and CLEAN. But not clean in that antiseptic, bargain motel sort of way: there are all the touches of home here. It felt like staying with a relative who keeps a REALLY clean, inviting home. In addition to the house, there's the beautiful grounds. Dawn has 75 acres of Vermont mountain and she does a fantastic job maintaining it. I walked up to see all her waterfalls, but unfortunately the water was too cold to get in. We'll have to come back in the summer to enjoy the warmer temperatures!

  • Dawn is very welcoming and thoughtful. She made sure that we had the right directions to get to the house and she advised us on the best way to go to different spots. Whenever we had questions we wrote her an e-mail and she answered very quickly.
    The house is very comfortable and we feel totally at ease there. She knows how to make great coffee, and she will certainly offer you a cup, don't miss this opportunity. Even though providing the breakfast wasn’t mandatory, she offered beverages and good snacks.
    The garden is huge and gorgeous. It's especially pleasant during the summertime.
    We will definitely come back next time we go to the US !

  • Dawn was great! The place is beautiful, super clean and very well decorated. Sugarbush is 30 mins down the street and we wish we had more time to explore the 70 acres the house sits on! Dawn is a very gracious host, providing delicious banana bread and granola for breakfast, and we had a great time. Highly recommend!

  • Beautiful location and Dawn was very accommodating. She was very prompt the entire trip with her communication and the rooms worked out great. I only wish we would have had more time to explore the property.

    Great host and great place - looking forward to booking again once I'm back in the area!

  • Dawn is awesome!! Her place is amazing. Her house was clean and comfortable and very warm and welcoming. A lot like Dawn- warm and welcoming. The room was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. This house was a hard place to leave. We borrowed snow shoes and went for a "walk" to see her back yard. There is usually a waterfall and picnic area to be enjoyed, even covered in snow it was beautiful. Dawn was very helpful with suggesting a place for dinner and talking with us about the area and the history of her home and WOW we just had a great time here. Our stay was not long enough and YES we would definitely re-visit.

  • Dawn was an amazing host!! From the moment I booked this trip as a surprise Christmas gift for my boyfriend, she was helpful and attentive with any pre-trip questions I had. I went to UVM and my boyfriend is a Norwich grad, so it was so great to swap stories and our individual experiences with Vermont.The house is beautiful and the room was the perfect size for a weekend getaway!

    There was a good amount of snow on the ground but we hiked our way to the gorgeous waterfall and trails. This was the ultimate location off the beaten path if you're looking for something within driving distance to Burlington, Stowe, Montpelier, etc.

    As for Dawn, I'm sure we'll stay in touch and hopefully be back soon!

  • Accomadations were great. Enjoyed the comfy bed, great coffee before hiking to wee the waterfalls. BUT the best part was meeting Dawn, she made our visit wonderful

  • Our weekend at Dawn's house was really pleasant. Our room was charming and really clean. Dawn was really nice : no stress, a charming house, a sweet cat and a good breakfast with a homemade cake.

    If you want to visit Vermont, you can rent a room on the 3 covered Bridges for sure.

About
Originally from New Jersey, I fell in love with Vermont's mountain wilderness when I was about 12 years old. (Wow...no billboards!) Years later, I bought a falling down camp (no wiring, no plumbing, etc.) and spent much time and money just bringing the house (email hidden)-able" state. It's been another 15 years or so working out the details and chipping away at the outrageously overgrown flora and fauna to create open areas and some gardens. Whew! Here's a quizz about Vermonters...."What do you call a Vermonter with 3 jobs?" Answer: "Lazy". Like most folks here in the Green Mountains I do several things for "loot". I so some substitute teaching, respite for handicapped clients, waitressing and professional driving. In between those, I've finally been able to get my "guest house" up and running!
