If you are seeking the action/adventure options of the Kingdom Trails or Burke Mountain or are simply looking for a beautiful redoubt from which to soak in the peace and beauty of the Northeast Kingdom, Three Plums and a Kiwi will meet your expectations.
Our one bedroom apartment is connected to our home by an enclosed porch. The apartment offers a very comfortable living room/dining room/kitchen main space with built in bookshelves (plenty of books and magazines) and original art work on the walls. A Tivoli Two FM radio fills the room with a high quality stereo sound. Switch to the auxiliary and listen to your digital collection. Wi-fi allows you to connect, though our band width does not support streaming. The kitchen is well equipped for those who prefer to cook in. For outdoor cooking we have a propane grill. The small bedroom has a brand new queen sized bed. The living room has a comfortable couch and a futon. The futon converts to a queen-sized bed. The bathroom includes a wood paneled tub and shower. Wide board pine floors, pine window trim, and wood furniture give this space a clean and cozy atmosphere.
The apartment has its own deck overlooking three plum trees, kiwi vines, and our vegetable garden. Wild turkey and deer are often seen in our fields. Morning birdsong will greet your awakening.
Our solar-powered homestead is situated on 36 acres of hay fields and hardwood forests. Trails begin out the back door and wind through fields and woods. Along with our vegetable garden, the house is surrounded by perennial beds and a number of fruit trees and berry bushes. The near and distant views are outstanding!
Along with our dog Kenai and cat Lulu, we have a small barn housing Hilary's horse Chipper and two alpine goats, Violet and Kirby.
While there is great dirt road biking and walking (Nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months) out the back door, we are only 15 minutes from the incredible Kingdom Trails and 15 minutes from Burke Mountain. Our local supermarket, the White Market, is 10 minutes down the road. Saint Johnsbury, 20 minutes distant, offers great movies at Catamount Arts as well as the Saint Johnsbury Athenaeum and the Fairbanks Museum.
The apartment is perfect for two, though it can accommodate a maximum of four. Sheets and towels are provided. The nightly fee for one or two is $110/night, three or four is $120.
There is ample parking for two vehicles.
A minimum commitment of two nights is required. Once you have reserved with airbnb we will send you our detailed User's Guide.
Hope to see you in the NEK! Tom and Hilary
