About this listing
I've lived in Vermont for nearly 20 years and I'll never live anywhere else. I am so at home in our small village yet grateful that [the cool town] of Brattleboro is nearby, as are ski areas, trails, and waterways.
Here's the bedroom in the suite: To the left is a dresser and a door to the back yard sitting area; to the right is a window and a wardrobe.
Two clean, attractive rooms with private bathroom (shower, no tub), separate entrance and private porch over looking the Rock River. One finds a queen bed, dresser and wardrobe in the guest room and a fold-out couch, small table and chairs, chest with microwave and small fridge in the anteroom. Ours is a comfortable early 19th century Southeastern Vermont village home set back from the road among woods walks and sweet country roads--perfect for strolling, biking and cross-country skiing. Kitchen access for long-term stays. Free Wifi; limited cell service; ample parking. You'll find a couple shops and eateries in Newfane village a few miles north and many in Brattleboro, twelve miles south; Mount Snow is 20 minutes west and Stratton is 40 minutes north. We're a warm and quiet household--a conveniently located and peaceful retreat. Pets are fine if housebroken. Special rates apply for long-term stays. Rates are lower in mud season and the 9% Vermont room tax is included in the room rate.
NEW! We now have our very own cafe in the village open Friday and Saturday nights. It's called "The Eatery." The food and atmosphere are GREAT!
You will have a two-room suite with a private bath, a dorm size fridge and a microwave. You have your own private section on my front porch and access from the bedroom to a sitting area out back. Unless I have family staying – and even then if you don't mind the company – you're welcome to use living room and parlor. You'll have breakfast in the dining room or outside in nice weather, if you wish. Long-term guests may have access to my kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Not much, if it's a fall to spring weekday (i.e., a school day), though I always leave breakfast out before I head to school.
On weekends and in vacation periods, I'll interact as much as folks seem to want to. No matter what day of the week, I love to offer suggestions as to what to explore in the area, depending on guests' interests.
Williamsville is a small village of c. 275 within the town of Newfane. We love our community, neighbors are good to each other, and greetings are ample.
If you plan to stay for at least three days, I can pick you up from the train or bus in Brattleboro.
Other Things to Note
Bring your bikes and, in warm weather, your swim suits. We have several great rides and swimming holes nearby. And many lovely walks and hikes, too. Remember the fridge and microwave! Bring snacks and more if you're so inclined. My cat is a piece of work: If you want to give her attention, she'll lap it up: Otherwise, she's just as happy to be ignored.
Guests are free to come and go as they please and are asked just to turn the lights out when they leave a room.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 1 night.
