The beautiful Sanctuary has 25 ft ceilings, filled with art, beautiful colors, a fantastic large kitchen with a Garland Restaurant stove, soap stone farm sink, and farm table island. Original stained glass windows, the space is a one of a kind stay, loved by many, close to town and nature, set in a hamlet. In winter, the space is heated with radiant floor. In summer, beautiful walks to water close by. The Sanctuary is just minutes from Brattleboro, one of the best small art town in America.

The space
The stained glass is original and is illuminated each morning by the sunrise coming up over the hill. This stunning space is the result of a three year renovation. The curved walls and archways create a true sanctuary space that is hard to leave once you are there.

Stratton Mountain is 30 minutes to the access road and under 40 to Mount Snow. Brattleboro, just five minutes away, has been voted consistently as one of the best small towns in America to visit. If you want to ski, snow shoe, shop, eat, sip local brew and explore the town, or never leave the Sanctuary, this is your spot!

The master suite is up in the extended "choir loft" that I built out to make a spacious bedroom with very comfortable king bed, and dressing room, and has it's own full bath with double-headed shower made with my studios artile, and 54" claw-foot tub.

There are two beautiful, small private rooms to the left and right of what used to be the altar. They are cozy bed niches with queen beds, and a large skylight in each. There is a full bathroom for these rooms with European style shower as well as laundry.

The kitchen is a chef's paradise, with a six burner, double oven gas stove, double soapstone farm sink and beautifully detailed concrete countertops. Lots of counter space and a large farm table island in the middle provide adequate prep, serving and "hang out" space (everyone seems to love to congregate in the kitchen!).

Handmade dishes and glasses…the ceramic cups are part of my years of collecting hand made cups made by different artists. We feel this is an intrinsic part of everyday great living, so we chose to leave them in place for you to use.

The TV lounge under the choir loft has couches and a lounge chair for watching movies, reading and relaxing. We have cable, Netflix and Amazon capability through the Blue Ray player, and of course, high speed Internet.

The heat is radiant floor which is wonderful for this space with 25' vaulted ceilings. There is also a propane instant on-demand glass door fireplace on the "altar" for ambience throughout the space and cozying up to after a day on the mountains.

There are country roads for walking, a wonderful river to visit nearby, a great neighborhood if you want to make friends, and the US post office right in the village.

The Sanctuary is a most welcoming and generous space for one to six!

There is a grill outside the front door.

The front door will be open with key and house manual on the table, so guests check in and out on their own.

You will definitely need a car here, though you can walk to many swimming location on beautiful Vermont streams.

This is a first level apartment with totally separate entrance, and we do ask our guests to be mindful of heavy heels, furniture moving and dropping things on the floor, especially during normal sleeping hours.
