Cross country ski or snowshoe on our private trails, right out your door. This 1 BR guest cottage is 4 miles from the Inn at Weathersfield named Fodors's Best Restaurant in VT. It is also 15 miles (about 25 minutes) from Okemo Mountain, With living room, kitchen, 1 bathroom, and one loft bedroom, there is room to sleep 4. Secluded among spruce and white pines, you can see the main house, woods, and meadows from your porch. Covered parking, dirt roads for running and biking, 10 minutes from the Connecticut River, 15 minutes from Ascutney mountain where the adventurous can enjoy backcountry powder at the closed ski resort. 30 minutes to Dartmouth College and Hanover, NH.
Currently, this cottage is not toddler friendly due to the lack of railing on the loft stairs. We will remedy this soon. The loft should also not be considered a very 'private' bedroom.
Standup shower, no bathtub.
We will share with you our 12 acres, containing the trails mentioned above, and in the summer, a lovely small pond for swimming, and a stream for swimming and exploring. A small sledding hill is perfect for the 5-10 year old set in the winter.
Numerous hiking trails minutes away in all seasons. Wonderful berry and apple picking minutes away also.
Although this is your excuse to 'unplug', Verizon cell service is very good, and WiFi is available. We live in the main house on the same property, and are happy to loan equipment such as xc skis, sleds, snowshoes, or anything else you may need. Please just ask!
For a quiet retreat, away from the crowds, but with easy access to the Okemo ski scene or Dartmouth activities, this is the place for you. A large 'tiny house'. We are open to 6 month and 1 year leases and can rent furnished or unfurnished. Please inquire about single pets.
