A private entrance leads to this 650 sqft (60 sq.m) loft apartment which extends over the entire side wing of our new farm house that was built in 2004 and is located on a 5 acre organic apple orchard. Our house and property have been featured in the 2011 September/October issue of Yankee magazine.
For your privacy, the apartment and your personal bathroom with shower and tub are both physically separated from the rest of our house. Large and fully operational kitchen, sleeping, lounging and working areas make this living space a relaxing and energizing experience. The beautiful, unobstructed 360° panoramic views over Champlain valley, the Adirondack and Green Mountains will undoubtedly complete your Vermont countryside adventure. And star gazing during clear nights makes you want to touch stars and the Milky Way in particular, a spectacular display of the universe enhanced by the lack of intrusive city light.

Interaction with Guests
We are always available to assist our guests in their preparation of their trip to Vermont and gladly provide tips for restaurants, sightseeing, outdoor activities, shopping, etc.
Our 5 acre property is located in a rural, very quiet Vermont setting 10 miles south of Middlebury, VT. Our property is located on a ridge with a wonderful 360° view over the Champlain Valley, the Adirondack and Green Mountains.
Because of the rural setting of our property, there is no public transportation available.
Our general philosophy is "Treat our property as you treat yours".
Because we are prone to rapid weather conditions in summer where thunderstorms can pop up unexpectedly, we ask that windows will be closed when leaving the apartment.
When leaving the apartment, please lock the apartment door.
Our sensitive smoke alarm in the apartment has a tendency to go off when one toasts bread or bagels. Keep this in mind and don't get upset when the alarm should go off.
We both are dual citizens of the USA and Switzerland and cherish the distinct cultural differences of these two highly industrialized countries. Our early lives blessed us with frequent and extended travels all over the world. We also lived for a couple of years in Montreal, Canada and Bogotà, Colombia and real life experiences in all continents but Africa shaped our believe that human nature is fundamentally as sincere and as precious as we all expect it to be. We love having people visit us and can assure visitors of their total privacy.
