The Space

Visiting a child at Dartmouth? Coming for business at DHMC? Want a fall color trip, summer lake escape, or winter cross-country ski getaway in New England?

Our place is perfect for you. Sleep in this gold jewel box of a bedroom with comfortable queen-sized bed, Italian marble floors and a giant picture window with an incredible view of the lake, mountains, and stars. Private bath with shower and bathtub is attached to your room.

In summer, step out the front door for kayaking, fishing, or swimming in Mascoma Lake, or out the back door to hike or bike the 20-mile Northern Rail Trail between Lebanon and Grantham NH; a short walk along the trail brings you to the Mascoma river for fly fishing. We can lend you the kayak, a bike, and/or basic fishing tackle, or feel free to bring your boat for waterskiing or other adventures.

In winter, snowshoe across the frozen lake or on the trail, or ice-skate on our front yard rink. Small kids love to sled down the hill! Warm up afterward with cocoa in front of the wood stove. We have snowshoes to lend for adults and kids, or bring your skis or snowmobile to use on the trail.

We're a 10 minute drive to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and a 15 minute drive to Dartmouth College, too.

The room is perfect for a couple. We have a child and welcome children; if you bring a child or two along, they can sleep on an air mattress we'll provide in our son's playroom, or on a futon in the living room, adjacent to your room.

NEW: We now have a gorgeous new 3 person outdoor hot tub with a view of the lake!

A NOTE ABOUT PRICING: For certain dates, you will see the price is markedly higher; $150/night. On these dates, the price is for the run of the house; you'll have the place to yourself and the house on those dates can accommodate 4-5 people instead of the usual 2-3. Also these dates only *may* include (depending on the timing of your visit) a trip to a local Vermont CSA farm and a free basket of local, seasonal organic produce for you to use during your stay; contact us for details about whether this perk is available for the dates you book.

  • Jeremy's place was just as advertised, a very nice setting on a beautiful lake. We arrived late in the day, but still had time to enjoy wine and cheese we had brought with us on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake. The room was clean and comfortable. The double sink vanity in the bathroom was very nice as well. Jeremy was very accommodating and helpful, giving us a great recommendation for getting pancakes in the area the next morning. Because our schedule required us to leave early after one night we did not get a chance to take advantage of swimming, kayaking, or their hot but on this trip, but we would plan to do so the next time we return.

  • Peaceful location: By a peaceful setting with a lake front view. Relaxing place to sit and read. It was a bit tricky to find the entrance from the highway, so just have to keep an eye out for the landmark provided by Jeremy.

    Nice host: Jeremy was nice and accommodating. We arrived very late in the evening from our road trip and he was there to welcome us. We didn't get to interact much since we also left early in the morning to continue our road trip.

    Clean, airy, and romantic room but can use a little more privacy:
    The room was clean and romantically set up. I was traveling with my friend (girl) so it was a bit awkward to share a bed (email hidden) and massage oil in the room. :-) The room has one big window over-looking the lake so it was nice to have the morning sun waking you up.
    Since there were plenty of windows and openings, it felt a little too open. The window was big and had some curtains but the curtains are not opaque and leaves an opening at the bottom edge. The bathroom blinds don't close completely as well and it is across the parking area/front of the house.

  • Jeremy was very accommodating, responding promptly to all questions. We arrived late (around midnight) for Dartmouth reunion weekend and found the house warmly lit and tidy. Our bedroom/bathroom was clean. And although my friend and I are allergic to cats, we didn't have any problems the entire weekend. It was cold that weekend and I would recommend bringing slippers since there isn't any carpet. The view and surroundings are classic NH. I liked the coffee set out for the morning. I give hospitality all the time to friends visiting NYC and I think Jeremy did a great job. I wanted to stay closer to campus but it was only 10 min from Dartmouth and a peaceful drive without traffic.

  • Jeremy and his family were incredibly warm, accommodating, and friendly hosts. It was a pleasure staying with them, in their beautiful home. We enjoyed a lovely weekend, and the hot-tub overlooking the lake was a great way to relax our sore muscles after a long day of skiing!

  • Jeremy is a kind and welcoming host. The room was very cozy with an incredible lake view. Looking forward for another visit to Lebanon, NH.

  • Stayed with Jeremy while attending a wedding in White River Junction, VT. His place is SO great: hot tub, kayaks, lake frontage with a small beach, and lovely views of the lake from the bedroom and the attached deck. I'd absolutely come back...nice guy too!

  • Jeremy, his family, and cat (I think her name was Turtle?) were wonderful hosts - they could not have been more accommodating. The bedroom and bath were absolutely lovely and well situated in the home. As promised, we were able to use their kitchen and living room. Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy more amazing views of the lake and all the outdoor equipment (floating slide, kayaks, hot tub, trampoline), so we might have to make a return visit! Would highly recommend.

  • We had a lovely stay with a very lovely host. Our bedroom was roomy and quite comfortable, with a wide view of the lake and the starry sky. The attached bathroom was also convenient. We wish we could have stayed longer to have time for a swim or a dip in the hot tub.
