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.
Please look over the guest 'info' sheet in unit...it has some other helpful details.
Dawn was a very welcoming host who couldn't do enough for us. She had created a very cosy room for her guests in her special retreat in the woods. We also enjoyed a walk around her spectacular property.
We had a great stay at Dawn's house. It is a beautiful, quiet place, perfect for getting some rest. Dawn is one of the best hosts we met on our journey, very caring, friendly and always ready to help if you need something. We can definitely recommend a stay at the Three Covered Bridges BnB!
We had a very welcome reception at Dawn's place. The location is a bit difficult to find, it's best to arrive with daylight but Dawn does everything to have you arrive at the right spot. The mint room is charming, clean and so is the bathroom, great shower.
Breakfast was wonderful with homemade zucchini bread and everything that we could wish for. Dawn was super, friendly and very accommodating, so was her friend. Extremely nice people that make you feel very welcome and really fun to talk with.
Very good value for money and worth a detour!
All I can say about the Three Covered Bridges and it's Hostess is...WOW! My 16 year old daughter and I fell in love with everything (the drive through the mountains is not recommended for the faint of heart). The comforts and then some of home, the breath taking views of Dawns land including waterfalls and the three covered bridges were amazing. We got in late and Dawn recommended a wonderful place in town for diner where we shared some good laughs with the locals.I plan to visit again, bring my family, and stay longer to explore the area. We came as strangers we left as friends.
I don't believe Christy meant to scare anyone off about the mountain road, though. It's a main road here from Northfield to Moretown and the school bus goes over everyday. Well maintained, it was just sooooo different from Minnesota and it was their first time here in Vermont.
Once gotten used to, they did say they loved the driving!
The stay exceeded all of our expectations. The house and property were even more beautiful in person than in the photos and Dawn was a gracious host. Meeting us upon arrival, she showed us to our room which was immaculately clean and filled with amenities. She made her home our home, offering us the last morsel of food she had and providing us with a stay that felt like we were staying with family.
In the morning, she offered us a breakfast that can simply be described as perfect. Fresh toasted bagels, breads and jams, muffins and pastries, and the most succulent peaches this side of Georgia.
We walked the grounds the morning before we left, and as with everything else, were pleasantly impressed. Dawn maintains all 75 acres of grass and forest covered hills. With sitting areas and streams to ease your soul, you need do nothing more than enjoy the experience.
Dawn is one of the best hosts on AirBnb and we would wholly recommend her home.
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!

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 getting the house into a livable condition. 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!
