I moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area in 2001 and, having visited relatives in Maine since childhood, I already had an abiding love for New England and first-hand knowledge of what makes holidays here truly meaningful. That perspective greatly informs my goal to make the experience of every Pleasant Street Suite guest as ideal and customized as possible. Having first encountered Vermont while on vacation, I also know that spacious, well-appointed, clean and comfortable lodgings are crucial to any fun and fulfilling getaway.
As a travel, arts and culture writer for various publications, including New York Times, the Boston Globe, Associated Press, Art in America, etc.--as well as having had a weekly column in Vermont's oldest newspaper, the Rutland Herald, for 3 years--I know first-hand all that Vermont has to offer. There are so many types of diversions--from galleries and antique shows to kayaking and skiing--and I have heaps of info on the best options in the region, for individuals, couples, families and/or folks here on business. This is a very special corner of the world and, as both an urban refugee and travel writer, I've come to know it inside and out, so just ask and I'll be happy to help!
