The space

The Purple Chef's House is a wonderful rural hideaway hosted by one of Brattleboro's leading caterers. On of the highlights of staying at The Purple Chef's House is the mini cooking lesson that comes with your customized breakfast.

Well behaved dogs (sorry, no cats due to allergies) and their humans can relax and enjoy a comfortable, private wooded setting three miles from downtown Brattleboro, conveniently located near routes 91, 9 and 30, Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain.

Spacious grounds include 6 acres, a wooded walking trail, picturesque pond, open grassy areas for frisbee and a large deck overlooking the pond for outside eating, relaxing and enjoying the beauty of nature.
Single room with a double bed and private bath available. This space rents for $165 per night on the weekend and $115 during the week.

Second available space is a loft sleeping area which is appropriate for teenage family members and above. It sleeps two with two twin beds. Loft space rents for $55.00 per night which includes tax. Gourmet breakfast provided by the owner.
One Shetland Sheep dog in residence. WIFI available. No smoking allowed on the premises.

The style of this house is eclectic. Colorful, energizing and cozy. The guest bedroom is decorated with handmade original quilts. The private bath has a tub shower unit and is across the hall from the bedroom.

There is a sunken living room with a wood stove and TV. There is also a comfortable sofa in the dining room area that is great for lounging. Tea and coffee are always available. The wood stove is on most evenings in the fall and winter.

Located 3 miles from town and there are many restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner. The town has a wonderful museum and fun shops. Very close to the ski slopes. We are on a dirt road surrounded by woods but easily accessible.

This is a house designed for entertaining and company. And you must love dogs.

(There is a $25.00 surcharge per dog.)

Guest access

Living room, dining room, deck, woods walk.

Interaction with guests

I love to interact with my guests to find out about them, their careers etc. Mostly over breakfast.

The neighborhood

I love that it's 5 minutes from town yet you are nestled in the woods. There are dirt roads for walking, biking and running. It's very private but close to everything.

Getting around

You need a car to get there. Amtrak has a stop in downtown Brattleboro. If you need a rental car, Enterprise will meet you with your car. Their number is .

Other things to note

I'm always happy to have my guests hang out in the kitchen and ask me questions while I'm cooking.
Before each guest arrives, I will ask what their food allergies and food preferences are and will acccomodate your wishes as much as possible.

House Rules

There is no smoking on the premises. Please leave muddy shoes by the door. If you are brining your dog please keep him or her on a leash until all dogs have met and are friendly.
You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet. Inside and out. If you are pet-less you have no worries, just please be prepared to pet the resident dogs.

Lounging spaces are available. In the warm weather you will love the deck for relaxing and reading. Or drinks.
