About this listing
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.
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.
