              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We have lived in this wonderful historic home since 1986, restored it, built wonderful gardens and raised our kids here. Now we share it with guests traveling to the area to relocate, visiting family or for a relaxing Vermont vacation. Guests enjoy a lovely, comfortably furnished home with original art and hand made furnishings, full kitchen, bath and laundry.

              Why the Owner Chose Montpelier:
              This property is located on the border of Montpelier and East Montpelier. It is well situated, a pastoral setting, quiet and convenient to town. We are on a quiet country road one half mile to the main road, so there is never a problem getting out in the winter. We are within walking distance to the East Montpelier foot trail and cross country ski trails.

              The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
              Unique furnishings, enjoy the windsor dining set by owner/Master Chair builder Wiliam Morrison and artwork by owner artists. Our gardens and surrounds host to many medicinal herbs and native plants, flowers, trees. Lovely quiet surrounds. Coffee shops ten minutes away, or stay in and enjoy coffee or tea on the porch, watch the sunrise or the rainbow at sunset after an evening rainfall.
