Why Jim Baldwin chose Newfane
I grew up in the area and still have family and many friends in Vermont. When the possibility arose of having a home here, it just seemed like the right thing.
What makes this Cottage unique
Whenever someone says to me, 'Imagine that you are in your special spot, a place where you feel safe and comfortable, and where you feel a profound sense of belonging,' I think of the deck of this cottage. The peace that comes from staying here lasts me for weeks.

GEM IN THE COUNTRY
This is our second stay at the house and its location and situation are perfect - for a quiet night's sleep and for closeness to some interesting and beautiful towns and villages. The lower bedroom is huge, with its own fireplace and supply of wood; the living room, also with its own wood-burning stove and with dining and kitchen in open plan, opens on to a balcony the full width of the building. Perfect for restful views any time of the day. The loft bedroom has a skylight to the stars (or the early morning sun!) and accessed by a beautiful spiral staircase. Kitchen is for one person at a time and adequately stocked with dishes, flatware and cooking needs. The full bathrooms on upper and lower floors are stocked with super soft towels; downstairs has glassed-in shower stall, upper a combination bathtub/shower. FYI - Had a super meal this visit at The Old Crow restaurant on Hwy 30 as you enter Newfane. All in all, another great stay in a super property.
Private yet convenient
Great place for family vacation. We went swimming in the river, Bromley summer park, bike riding and BBQ at the home. WiFi and cell service worked well.
Thanks, Mathew! Always happy to have you and your family come for a visit!
Cabin in the woods
Lovely place. Nice and green with nice little view. Lots of bird calls but never saw them! Very neat and clean place. Thank goodness for fans in the super hot weather! There just needs to be a more secure trash can from beasts knocking over and opening.
Second time renting
The property is a perfect slice of Southern Vermont featuring a serene atmosphere set back atop a small river valley which guarantees subtle breezes on the top deck.
