The place was great and Theo was very nice and helpful, but I have a few suggestions for future guests.
First, if you're going in winter make sure you have chains for your tires and/or 4 wheel drive. When we went it had just snowed that day and the road was icy. We ran into a snowbank, were helped out by friendly Vermonters, then had a very tense drive down the curvy hill to Theo's place.
Second, if you have back problems this place may not be for you. The bed is very stiff and its mostly hard chairs for sitting. We were fine, but just know what you're up for.
We stayed in the upstairs apartment. All was new and clean. I would suggest bringing blankets, however, as the bed had only 1 thin blanket, but the space heater warmed up the place nicely. Everything else was included. Theo was helpful with suggesting activities and directions. He recommended Dinosaur Footprints park for the way home, which was really cool. Theo even came out to the road with a flashlight when our GPS failed us in getting us to the right spot. The property and surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful, with a babbling brook. Perfect to just hang out at. There is also lots to do in the nearby area, and beautiful driving all around.
We stayed at Vermont Foliage Fest for 2 nights and had a lovely time. The location is incredibly peaceful - no man-made sounds, because it is removed from the main road, just the chirping of crickets and the bubbling of the stream behind the property. The upstairs apartment was spacious, with a big bed, futon couch, desk, and small kitchen table for two. The kitchen was well equipped with an electric stove/oven from Greece, several different pots and pans, and utensils. The space was immaculately clean. The bed was very firm. When we opened the windows we could hear the rustling of nature outside, but when we shut them they were completely soundproof. The little deck outside was perfect for setting up the telescope and getting a glimpse of the moon.
It was easy to get to Brattleboro via Rt 9. If you go, check out the food co-op, which has the most incredible bulk section we have ever seen. Hiking and other outdoor activities were also easily accessible. We didn't explore behind the building, but we made the easy journey to Molly Stark State Forest for a hike up Mt. Olga. Highly recommended!
Theo was an attentive and kind host. He greeted us at the property to show us around and give us keys, even though we arrived an hour later than we had expected. He provided a lot of books, as well as some local guides for hiking, biking, arts, culture, and other area offerings. On our last day, he stopped by to chat and pick up the keys around 11, giving us ample time to clean up and hit the road before his next guests arrived in the afternoon.
We didn't have wifi access and we had no AT&T service at the property, but we didn't miss either one!
Theo is a very attentive and friendly host, and the apartments are new, large, and very clean. The kitchen is simple, yet well-stocked. There were six large towels available, and the bath has a full tub/shower. The bed is a king size and outrageously firm. The little deck is great, and the bugs were few. There were only sounds of nature outside; no man-made noises, as the property is located far down a gravel road, and the nearby stream trickles away.
All the floors are tiled and the space is sparsely appointed, so there's a lot of echo. When the other, downstairs apartment became occupied, it was easy for each apartment's inhabitants to hear each other walking around and talking.
Had both apartments upstairs and downstairs, plenty of space for a great price. Great views, little stream right out back.
It was very nice staying at Vermont foliage fest.
Theo is a great host. He knows very well the contryside and he gave us very good advises about places to visit.
The flat was comfortable and clean, in a very quiet place.
This is our second time staying with Theo at his place. The apartment is quiet, clean and spacious. Theo is a great host. The property is beautifully secluded yet still within reasonable driving distance of Brattleboro and other attractions in Southern Vermont. We would definitely stay with Theo again!
