Yellows, oranges, and reds are beginning to dot the landscape--come take a peak! This is the perfect place to escape the hustle of life. Water views from all rooms inside; outside, a covered patio space, and stone walk down to the river. A great location for couples, photographers, writers, business travelers, nature lovers. Easy access to I-91. Bicycles, Kayaks, SUP board and pedal boat provided.
While this space is perfect for anyone who wants a get-away--a place to relax, meditate, go fishing, write, listen to birds or the chance to see a bald eagle--the unique attraction and outstanding quality here is the river. There is a gentle walk-down path to an outdoor fireplace and to the water from your patio.
Inside is a studio-style main room. The kitchen area has a full-size refrigerator, microwave, Keurig, hot plates, pots/pans/dishes, toaster, and convection oven. Pantry and fridge are stocked with all the basics and much more. A multi-purpose table with two chairs allows you to eat inside and watch the river, or use it as a work space/desk.
View tv or the flicker of flames from an electric fireplace from the couch. The smart HDTV is a 43" flat screen with Roku, netflix, DVD player. DVDs, games, books, and puzzles available.
The bedroom has a view of the river, too, a queen-sized bed, ample closet/hanging space. For additional sleeping in the main room, there's a chaise style couch (31x71) that converts to a twin-sized bed. A self-inflating twin mattress can be used for a fourth person.
The bathroom includes a tiled rain shower. Around the corner is a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board.
Radiant floor heating through-out the apartment, and it stays nice and cool in the summers. Bedroom is air-conditioned in the summer. Modern ventilation system throughout home keeps air clean and fresh.
Zugang für Gäste
The apartment is on the lower level of the house, and has it's own keyed entry door facing the river. Your privacy is important (I live above in the upper levels and access the house from the road side.) You have your own patio space and back yard. Feel free to come and go as you please.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Most likely, I will be around in the evenings and available for questions, concerns, assistance. Your autonomy and privacy is important and I want you to feel like the place/space is yours!
Check-in time is flexible as long as you don't mind letting yourself in. We can make arrangements that work best for you.
On occasion, I may not be on site during check-in or the duration of your stay, and will provide instruction ahead of time. I'm always available via text or call for any questions or concerns you might have.

I grew up in Virginia, moved to Massachusetts for college, and have been in New England ever since. Vermont is by far my favorite place to live and experience the unique beauty of each season.
After years of enjoying home-sharing as a guest, it's been delightful to open up my home as a host. I live here with a myriad of wild, wonderful critters (except the whistle pig/ground hog who grazes on everything except grass). I love all-things-water,sun, and stone, so if not moseying down the river, I head to the ocean when there is a moment to spare.
Those moments are rare as I'm the owner/operator of Sister Services, L3C, providing specialized care to help seniors age in place, and respite for spouses of dementia-afflicted loved ones. Improving quality of life with creative problem-solving is the name of the game!
It's my hope that the Odyssey accomplishes something similar--a retreat, a pause, time away--that improves quality of life for guests.
