The Space

Nestled on a wooded hillside at the end of the road, our newly renovated home has four available guest rooms--two single occupancy bedrooms on the second floor, and two double occupancy bedrooms on the third floor of the house. Each bedroom is listed separately on Airbnb, so if you are interested in more than one room, or a different sized room, please see our other listings. We also have a cabin listed through airbnb. It sleeps up to 5.

This bedroom listing that you are viewing here has a double bed, and is located on the third floor. It has a great view, and privacy. All rooms include bed and bath linens, and access to two full bathrooms (one with a large stall and rain-shower, the other with a deep soaking tub--we also have a lovely outside shower available during warm months). A self-serve breakfast of local foods is included in nightly rate.

Our open living/dining room area is naturally well lit with views across the valley and woodlands. The house is sited above the confluence of two streams, and has a large south-facing deck, screened porch and stone patios, offering space for relaxing or working outdoors. High speed internet and wifi are available, but no television. Cell coverage is poor at the house, but a land line is available for domestic calls.

We have a friendly Corgi, a joyful Cockapoo, a shy Great Pyrenees, and gentle cat. Many wild birds visit our feeders year round. In the summer, our house is surrounded by perennial and vegetable gardens, and a growing orchard on the hill above.

Our property is adjacent to the Appalachian Trail Corridor and is contiguous with Land Trust and town forest, offering access right out our backdoor to miles and miles of trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing. Each season offers opportunities to glimpse wildlife and birds.

We are located 9 miles from the I-91/ I-89 interstate junction, within a short drive to Dartmouth College/Hanover, NH, Woodstock, VT, as well as many ski areas and local attractions. Driving times from Boston: 2.5 hours; NYC: 5 hours; Montreal: 3.5 hours. Public transportation from Boston, New York and Burlington/Montreal (trains and buses) are available to nearby White River Junction. You will need a car to get around, as much of Vermont and New Hampshire is rural with little to no public transportation. There are a number of rental car agencies nearby in West Lebanon, NH/White River Jct, VT. There are many restaurants within a short drive (15-30 minutes).

We hope you will consider our home, Solheim ("sunhouse" in Norwegian) for a beautiful Vermont mountain retreat within easy driving distance of many northern New England attractions and activities year round.

Guest Access

Guests have access to all public spaces in our home, full use of the kitchen if you prefer to bring in your own food and cook for yourself. All gardens and woods on our property.

Interaction with Guests

Guests are warmly welcomed to our home. We will be in residence during your stay, but you determine how much you want to interact. We orient you to the house, and are available to answer any questions. If you prefer to have privacy or less interaction, feel free to come and go as you please. If you enjoy some conversation or a shared breakfast with us, we are more than happy to engage--we've met many wonderful people through airbnb!

Other Things to Note

During the winter months, Vermont roads require at least good snow tires. Many people have 4 wheel drive vehicles, or use studded snow tires for winter driving conditions. Our road is well-maintained by the town, but it is a typical Vermont mountain road--it will be a challenge without good snow tires or 4 wheel drive until the plow comes through. If you have any questions, please ask!
