Set in the Vermont countryside near Brattleboro this recently updated two bedroom one-story country home sleeps four comfortably (up to six people with queen sized sofa sleeper with Air Dream Mattress). It sports an open concept floor plan that gives it an airy feeling, all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, a spacious south facing deck for dining and an outdoor barbecue, screened-in-porch, garage and a 30” fire pit to gather around when the day is done. It features new large windows throughout, allowing wonderful light to fill the rooms while you stay warm and cozy inside no matter what the weather is like.
Breathe in the fresh air as you stand from the deck that offers a restful view of a wooded glade that nestles around the hollow below. Don’t be surprised if from this post you spot a deer or two, or perhaps a fox. On those warm summer days lie back and relax in the hammock, and should the temperature begin to soar head over to the nearest swim hole by the covered bridge at the Green River Village timber and stone dam for a refreshing dip. More of our personal recommendations are listed below.
