I have spent over 30 years traveling throughout Europe, Asia and latin America for business and pleasure. This has contributed to an eclectic design concept for the house and a colorful collection of folk art and artifacts from a number of countries.

Paul Simons purchased this house in 1978

Simply Perfect

I rented this amazing house with a group of co-workers. Our intent was to get away for a few days of good food and conversation. I could not have asked for a better house.The views from all the rooms were stunning and the cooking facilities second to none. The music collection was like none that I had seen before, and the sound system was awesome. The bedrooms were well appointed and offered complete privacy. The house was spotless upon arrival and the caretaker, Craig met us and explained all the complexities of the house. All and all a very enjoyable and relaxing place to stay. I look forward to returning in the summer for a golf weekend.
Owner's Response: Appreciative and considerate people such as this group of co-workers always seem to enjoy the effort that we make to provide a clean and well equipped house and outdoor rooms. Our goal is to give them the opportunity for an upscale Vermont getaway that combines comfort, privacy and fun.

Beautiful home and grounds! The house has every amenity you could want! The hot tub was fantastic on the cold winter nights. We had a fire going one night that was very pleasant. The sound system is killer. Craig was extremely helpful in showing our party the features of the house and where everything was. Oh and the homemade cookies were delicious as well, thank you Paul and Craig for making this a very easy and seamless experience!!

The house just even better in person! Has every amenity you could want in a rental property. The owner is beyond accommodating and the caretaker is close by incase you should ever need anything. Unique, designer house with comfortable interior and hot tub, fireplace and beautiful exterior views. Definitely will come back. We had a girls weekend away, next stay I will try a couples weekend.

ENJOY!!

Welcome to where Vermont begins! Easily accessible from Boston and NYC, we invite you to leave the hustle behind and slow the pace down. Enjoy all the modern conveniences and comforts of home while immersing yourself in the beautiful surroundings, inside and out.

Dining:

Simons House is located a few miles from Brattleboro where a diverse dining experience awaits. Restauranteurs offer everything from fine continental cuisine, family fare to fast food. If you are looking for Indian, sushi or other Asian dishes you will not be disappointed. Coffee aficionados will enjoy Mocha Joe’s, our local coffee roaster that offers a variety of coffee blends, teas and hot chocolate. The Brattleboro Food Coop located downtown is a complete natural foods market, bakery and deli.

Leisure:

Crumpin-Fox Golf Club a Robert Trent Jones course and Big Mountain Skiing (Mt.Snow, Stratton and Okemo) are all within reach. Fishing, canoeing and kayaking are also great seasonal activities, as are cross-country skiing, ice skating and snow shoeing. Biking (road or mountain) will add vigorous exercise to your sightseeing experience.

Recommendations:

* Visit local artist studios, galleries, antique shops and sugar houses where pure maple syrup is made. Brattleboro, which was voted among America's top 100 artist communities, hosts Gallery Walk the first Friday evening of every month.

* Take a scenic drive highlighted by old covered-bridges and the white church steeples of yesteryear, babbling brooks and stone bottomed rivers with unmatched foliage colors in Autumn. During the summer months cool off with a dip at the Green River Village timber and stone dam by the covered bridge.

* A perfect way to experience the area’s natural beauty and local folklore is to reserve time to visit Madame Sherri’s Forest. Learn about this local legend from the Ziegfeld era and explore the grounds on footpaths leading to the castle ruins and around the very serene Indian Pond.

* The Brattleboro Area Farmers' Market is held Saturdays, May-Oct. Enjoy this folksy experience where area farmers, crafters and food vendors converge.

* An abundance of easy to moderate hiking is at hand. A climb to the top of nearby Mt. Wantastiquet is moderately difficult and will reward you with gorgeous panoramic views of Brattleboro and surrounds. Chesterfield Gorge with its waterfalls is another popular attraction that is less physically demanding.

* Arrange a wine tour or tasting at one of the area’s wineries located in nearby Jacksonville or Putney, VT.

* Family fun at Six Flags Amusement and Water Park in Agawam, MA is an hour and fifteen minutes away.
