I've lived in Vermont since 1996 and I'll probably never live anywhere else. I am so at home in our small village and grateful that the cool town of Brattleboro is nearby, as are ski areas, trails, and waterways.
Please note that my rates include breakfast and taxes. We have wifi and cell service for most carriers.
There's a microwave, a fridge, a small table and a few chairs. Guests who book for a week or more are welcome to use the kitchen and the washer/dryer.

My husband and I had a great time! We loved the atmosphere and scenery. The swimming hole was so refreshing and Annie was a great host!!!

Ann greeted us warmly when we arrived. Her home is a charming retreat that indeed offers “peace and quiet.” Although we spent most of our time away from the house the time we did spend there was calming. Ann provided breakfast options that were plentiful, varied and healthy. …

Ann has a lovely house in an amazing setting. You can hear the water from the brook sitting on the porch! The warmth and hospitality were top notch. Great place to stay if your headed to Vermont.

***Lengthy (but honest) review of this 5-Star listing*** Host provided clear directions and asked for an ETA. The afternoon of our arrival—BEFORE our scheduled ETA—I messaged to advise we were behind schedule. While traveling we were in areas without cell service. I communicated …

Response from Ann:
We were out with family all day and without cell or text access as we were on a lake. We were back in time for the guests’ estimated arrival—4:30-6 PM. Given that they didn’t show, I assumed the family had had a change of plans and tried to send a message through AirBnB but my account was inaccessible. We’ve had several power outages over the last several days and consequence internet outages. (Service out here in the country isn’t always reliable; thus I try to get as much info from guests as I can in advance.) I then had to leave again to join family for a picnic, but since I’d left instructions as to how to get themselves settled in, I knew they could acclimate if they arrived when I was out. NB: Re: arriving w/o my being here, I’d sent the following in an email to Danica via AirBnB: I’ve blocked out certain info for security: The drive is XX after the house. I share it with my neighbor. Park at the top on the XX. . We should be here. If not, just come on in through the XX. Go through XX, XX and XX and you'll see an Airbnb sign on the sliding door there. There are other inaccuracies in the guest’s reporting that I don’t need to address here. Back from the picnic, I saw that the guests had arrived so I introduced myself. At that point there were only two in the suite. The next morning there were three so I was thrown off since there’d been no mention of a late arrival when we spoke at c. 9:40. When I finally could get on to AirBnB, I saw that Danica had reported a c. 9:30 arrival—that’s 5 to 3.5 hours later than the rough eta! I will say that on Friday night I asked what time they wanted breakfast in the AM and they couldn’t decide. Thus I said I’d leave food out. But the next morning there was no sign of them before 11:15 so I knocked gently on the door. It’s unreasonable to expect any B and B to serve past 10 AM. I had switched the checkout time to 11 a while ago but I realize now that that hadn’t saved on line. I’ve had the same experience with other edits on my listing, thus I’ll address this with AirBnB. I’m usually very generous with check out time, but Danica’s was a last minute one-night booking was to be followed by other guests coming in for a longer stay so I had to get in to clean and change the linens. I welcome all guests and develop great rapport with them, as I’m sure I’d have been able to do with Danica and family had circumstances not worked against the situation. PS: The swimming hole to use, by the way, is the one to the left of the house. My partner has just moved in and doesn’t know all the nuances of living here yet.

Our stay at Annie's was lovely. Her home is located in a quiet, peaceful area that is directly across the street from a river. We so appreciated her warmth and kindness. The bed was comfortable and we loved being able to sleep with the windows open. Breakfast the next morning…
