This is truly Our Home Away from Home! Our family stayed at Donna's place in May while attending a family funeral in southern Vermont. The lovely ease of the place, the spacious comfort and opportunity to stay there with extended family helped heal the reason for the visit, so much so that when we had a week's vacation in September, we headed back to Rockingham- to Donna's house! I've been visiting Vermont for twenty years, staying at my in-laws homes or bed and breakfasts or hotels. Nothing has made me fall in love with Vermont like staying here. The post and beam home, solid and warm, the heating stove in the living room, the quiet solitude. The dining room table is perfect for family games, but I also sat and drew with soft pastels. My daughter danced in the grass and made beautiful videos with the green hills as her backdrop. (The view from the front windows is hilly!) My son walked in the woods behind the home, took photos of dozens of types of mushrooms and hunted for salamanders. My husband panned for gold in the river (long story.) The beds are comfy, the linens soft. Everything you need in the kitchen is where you think should be. It's a fun kitchen to cook in. (It even has lovely pottery to serve in and a big wooden salad bowl! Perfect!) The solid wooden front door feels protective and we always kid around about bears not getting through that thing! The washer and dryer are sure handy! We love being able to bring our little Shih Tzu with us, and he was so happy there rather than at a kennel! At night, in the right season, the sweetest tree frogs perch at the dining room windows waiting for their dinner to be attracted to the lights inside. We love this place. We want this place. We can't wait to get back to this place. Donna is available (by phone) and attentive to all needs! Cell service at the house is better than I expected and better than many areas I visit in Vermont. Bellows Falls, Grafton and Saxton's River, wonderful little towns. This is a great choice for getting away!!
