In our home you will find historic photos and documents including its original blueprints as well as the actual store ledgers revealing the homes notable past.
An additional 'feature' of this property harkens back to its days as a train stop as well as a store. The Vermont Railway maintains its right of way running near the back of the building, occasionally offering guests the up-close experience of passing rail traffic, (particularly exciting for young children!)
The house, consists of two levels of living space, recently renovated, offering five spacious bedrooms holding a total of 10 beds and one full bath on each floor.

If you wish, the building can be partitioned into two separate living spaces to accommodate two families, or divide larger parties.
Upon your arrival we, your hosts Sandy or John will greet you with a friendly smile and provide you with a property overview and furnish you with your key. We are happy to furnish you with information and brochures about local attractions, (including the passing trains) as well as up coming community events.
