The Space

We live in a beautiful, rural area known as the "Upper Valley" on the Ompompanoosuc River in Norwich, Vermont just six miles (a ten minute drive) from Dartmouth College. Step out the front door of our newly built Victorian farmhouse and relax with a book on the covered front porch, canoe or kayak on the river or take a hike on one of the many trails in our neighborhood that will take you by fields of cows, mountain views, and river valleys.

The guest room is well appointed with comfortable linens, a queen-sized bed and is decorated with soothing colors and fabrics. Your bedroom and adjoining private bath are situated on the third floor which you will have entirely to yourself. There is also a rollaway cot that can be pulled out to use if you need an extra single bed. NOTE: If you're traveling as a family or as a larger group, we do have an extra bedroom which is also located on the third floor with a double bed that sleeps an additional two people comfortably. This second bedroom also shares the private bath.

The private bathroom which has vintage fixtures, a claw foot tub, and fluffy towels is bright and cheerful and looks out over a grassy hillside.

If you'd like breakfast, we'll make you coffee and tea in the morning along with yogurt, granola, muesli, fruit, fresh King Arthur Bread, and locally-made fruit preserves.

We have high speed internet and parking, a fully equipped kitchen -that you are free to use - as well as an extra refrigerator in which to store your perishables.

This is the perfect spot to come for a little R&R in northern New England or if you are in the area visiting Dartmouth College, the Tuck School of Business, Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth Medical School, King Arthur Flour or are just here to appreciate the abundant natural beauty of the area. Nearby Hanover boasts some fun restaurants, a vibrant seasonal farmers market, a movie theater, and the Hood Art Museum. The year-round outdoor opportunities can't be beat: we're close to the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme, NH, the new Nordic Center in Strafford, Whaleback Mountain, skating ponds, waterfalls, mountain biking trails, the Appalachian Trail, and fantastic day hikes. We'd love to recommend fun destinations to make your stay even more special.

  • I had a great experience. The house was beautiful and the hosts were lovely. I would recommend staying here!

  • My husband and I had a wonderful one-night stay with Lisa and Ken in their gorgeous VT farmhouse. They were very flexible about our check-in time and we found our room and adjacent bathroom charming, with beautiful and creative use of color and a very comfy bed. GPS got us there with no problem, but if you arrive in daylight you will have the added bonus of a scenic drive along the Connecticut River. We would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Lisa's house. It is also a great spot to stay if you like birding. We ended up spending so much time walking around the area that we didn't have time to do everything that was on our to do list. We are hoping to come back again someday.

  • Really enjoyed meeting Lisa and Ken and staying in the lovely home they built. Their breakfast was delicious, and we also learned they ran a crepe cart at the local farmer's market which we visited... highly recommended! Both hosts are warm and very interesting people who really extended themselves to be sure we were comfortable and had all we needed. Hope to return!

  • I had a great stay at Lisa's home in Norwich. The house is astonishingly beautiful and Lisa and her daughter were very accommodating during my time there. Check in and check out was easy and I really appreciated the healthy breakfast that was provided. I would certainly stay here again.

  • We stayed with Lisa and her family for a week while transitioning to living in the Upper Valley. The whole family was very welcoming, considerate, and generous. We were able to learn a lot about the area, and start to feel at home in our new life. Lisa's house is beautiful and comfortable, and breakfast in the morning was a delicious special treat! I highly recommend Lisa as a host.

  • We loved this place. We stayed for just one night, after taking a class at King Arthur bakery. Lisa and Ken are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful home. The room is gorgeous. Bed is super-comfy. We loved the bathroom (and it comes with a great view of the woods behind the house). The entire house is spotless. Breakfast was yogurt, fruit, granola, bread from King Arthur, butter and jam--perfect. We were happy :)

  • Lovely home, beautiful setting, interesting conversation, and a very comfortable bed. I couldn't have asked for anything more!

  • AMAZING PLACE AND HOSTS! My daughter and I both had a WONDERFUL time at our stay with Lisa. Her home is charming, beautifully-decorated, comfortable, spacious, inviting, ... and both Lisa and her husband are the perfect hosts. After a day of exploring, we were delighted to be greeted by their border collie and enjoy sharing stories and experiences. Such a lovely end to the day! My daughter and I felt as if we were visiting friends rather than paying guests. Exceptional sleeps and delicious breakfasts too! We will definitely be back! I HIGHLY recommend this bnb. It is the perfect place to relax and recharge!

About
Hello. I'm a mother of three teenagers who's passionate about food, cooking, reading and travel. I run a small business called "Vermont Crepe & Waffle" and write a food blog called "Fork on the Road." When I'm not spending time with my husband and kids or testing a new recipe, I'm most likely to be found out and about exploring the world (especially France). Can't live without: my local libary, a cast iron skillet, farmer's markets, my knitting bag and another adventure planned in the future.
