Carmel Loft embodies many of the characteristics of rural Vermont that people travel so far to experience. It is cozy and woodsy with the faint smell of woodsmoke in the crisp air. A little taste of the rustic, practical lifestyle that is true Vermont. Jim and Linda are very accommodating and helpful, they might even lend you a pair of snowshoes if one of Vermont's famous Nor'easter's has you snowed in! I definitely recommend it, and am looking forward to staying there again.
