The town of Richmond is small enough to be friendly and 'Vermonty', but still have a few amenities. There are several great restaurants and a small, well-stocked supermarket. Burlington, UVM and Lake Champlain are a 20 minute drive west and there are downhill and nordic ski areas 20 minutes to the east. Hiking and canoeing are even closer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Kristen and Rod are transplants to Vermont, although we both came here when we were kids. Kristen works for the University of Vermont and Rod is self employed and works from home, next door.

Why the Owner Chose Richmond, VT, USA:
We choose the name Thompson Cottage to honor Madeline Thompson who lived here nearly her whole life until she passed away in 2013. The cottage was built for her and her husband Hobart, who farmed in this area for many years. It is a solid house that raised two children (Jon still farms in NY state with his children) and has hosted countless farm meals for family and friends.
