About this listing
Our warm and comfortable guest house sits on 75 acres of natural mountain forest... replete with several brooks and lots of waterfalls!

This guest room is in the main part of the house on the second floor. The shared bath is downstairs on the first floor. Most of the time, the bathroom is shared with just the hostess. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower curtain. (It requires stepping up into, and down out of, ... just to let you know!)

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.
A vehicle is a must!
Here in the rural setting of the Green Mountains, we have artisian well water and a septic system.
PLEASE do not flush anything other than tissue paper in the commode, and please do not pour cooking grease down the drain! Thank you very much!
Smoking is okay OUTSIDE ONLY, please. There will be an ashtray available if needed.
