Forest trails outside your door; star-gaze with little to no light pollution! Hike, byo bike, swim, byo kayak, explore; foliage in Fall.

To ensure the safety of all guests, A&K are fully COVID-19 vaccinated and require guests to conform to current State of VT guidance. See House Rules for specific requirements.

Le logement
The rental is a nearly 900 square foot loft above our 3-car garage and for privacy 150 feet distant from our home on our 11 acre woodlot. Pristine spring water from the faucets! Whitewashed pine floors; views into the treetops; wifi (band width for internet is limited - UNDER 5 bps; reception is slow during peak hours); great room (living, dining, and kitchen areas); three bedrooms; and large bathroom. A pellet stove and Rinnai heater provide warmth. A flat screen TV for DVD playing or streaming (no TV/cable/satellite channels; HDMI cable is provided) - feel free to bring DVDs with you, though we have a few on hand.

Hills surrounding the property and lack of cell towers nearby prevent cell phone coverage, though coverage can often be accessed within 3 miles of our driveway. A landline is onsite for emergency and local calls.

The kitchen includes small gas range with oven, small under counter refrigerator, sink, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, hot pot, pots and pans, cooking utensils, dishware, flatware, and Weber Kettle grill (outside; charcoal provided). We provide oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, teas, coffee, sugar, and Stevia; and are most often able to help with random spices, etc.

A cleared, natural area (read: no lawn) behind the loft includes a fire pit (firewood provided), picnic table, outdoor chairs, and trailheads. A great spot for star-gazing before you light the campfire.

Next to our house is a 20x20 post and beam screen house (with wifi), which you are welcome to share with us. It's a bit of paradise on the bank of a year round brook. Laze in the chaise and fall asleep to brook and bird songs, read, or have a meal at the picnic table.

We provide: towels, bedding (sheets, comforters), shampoo/conditioner, body wash, hair dryer, hand soap, dish soap, paper products, and a few first aid products. Drawers and cabinets for cleaning supplies have child-proof locks.

Groton, Vermont, États-Unis

Mid-May through June is black fly season in the north country. Some people are not bothered by them, but others are (including myself). We provide some bug sprays with DEET or not, but you may want to bring your preferred brand.

Please note: We are in a remote location, though adjacent to a paved state road. Plan on traveling at least 1/2 hour to towns that multiple outlets for groceries, shopping, restaurants, theater, nightlife. This is a rural area and our property is surrounded by the Groton State Forest. Band width for internet is limited - UNDER 5 Mbps; reception can be slow.

We have trails marked with ribbons from your door through the woods on our property and directly connecting to a developed trail in the State Forest. There is very easy access to other hiking trails in the Groton State Forest; a miles-long flat recreation trail is just a few hundred feet away; nearby Boulder Beach at Groton Pond offers day use - swimming and picnic areas (there is a car-top boat launch and canoes, kayaks and pedal boats are available to rent) beginning Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend; and unparalleled "leaf peeping" from roughly mid-September to mid-October. The route to Lincoln NH (1 hour) includes Route 112 into the White Mountains and offers spectacular foliage viewing.

The town of Groton (5-7 minutes away) offers a post office; library with wifi; a gas station/convenience store with a breakfast/lunch counter, pizza to order, and basic groceries; a barbeque restaurant; and a meadery (honey wine) that seasonally offers homemade icecream.

45 minutes to craft breweries and to Montpelier (the State capitol), which offers a wide range of excellent restaurants; 50 minutes to Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory, and shopping at Stowe, VT; 1-1/4 hours from Burlington; and a short hour from Franconia, NH. Cross-country skiing is within walking distance, but please note that the nearest downhill skiing option is Burke Mt., approximately 1 1/4 hour away.

Originally New Englanders, Kirsten and I now live in Vermont after nearly 20 years in the California desert. We are both self employed - Alan as a family counselor, and I am a research geologist/writer. We are readers, birdwatchers, pet owners, and enjoy snowshoeing in winter. My perennial garden is an ongoing joy and education. Alan spends time in his rowboat on a nearby lake. We have used airbnb ourselves on several occasions: Costa Rica, Hawaii, California, and many more.

Pendant votre séjour
We enjoy getting to know our guests a bit, but are not intrusive and will respect your quiet experience here in the forest. In either case, we are available to answer questions about the accommodations and the surrounding area.
