Located on a working farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont the Gypsy Wagon is tucked into the woods, off-grid, deeply serene, whimsical, primitive. Clean water provided (will need carried in for a winter stay). Outdoor private privy, battery operated lights, potbelly stove, and an outdoor fire ring. Reminder: no running water or electricity. Cell cover patchy. Winter guests should be the sort comfortable stoking fire and carrying water. Firewood, snow-shoes, coca and candles.
You will be the only ones in the woods in this wagon. It is spooky and delicious at night. Though there is no shower at the wagon we have indoor shower facilities close by available upon request. WiFI is only available in the nearby house. If you need a LAN line you are welcome to let us know before 9 pm unless it is urgent. The bed is comfy yet quite small, a bit smaller than a double. My husband and I enjoy the closeness but be prepared to cuddle. Sleeps 1 comfortably or 2 people who really like each other ;-). This is truly a tiny house, 7X14.
You will have access to the walking/skiing trails located on the 75 acre property. Or you may want to take the short drive to the cross country ski trails in the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. You are welcome to stop by and see my bob-tail mare, Ruby, and her goat companions; Brownie and Danny Boy.
Feel free to pop up to the house and talk to Larry and I if we are around. We ask that you come by before 9 pm unless it is urgent. We are early to bed, early to rise.
Due to no electricity, outdoor privy, walking trails and short walk up to the wagon from the parking pad, wise to bring clothes/boots suitable for our wonderful fall/winter weather.
- The wagon is small and would be comfortable for 2 very friendly people or a solitary traveler and a small, well-behaved dog.
I am originally an urban Midwesterner who gratefully made my way to the Northeast Kingdom, Vermont which is like taking a giant step back in time. There is a substantial local agrarian economy, general stores, and working farms. This land where we live is surrounded by unspoiled and outlandish natural beauty in all directions. With our days and by the seasons, we tend gardens, care for the barn animals, maintain and build trails, play and work through the winter folly, soak in the beauty year-round and eat great local food that Larry prepares. We also have 'day jobs'. Besides being a fab cook, Larry farms, is a builder and table maker (see Vermont Heritage Tables online). I maintain a small private mental health practice. Larry is an avid sci-fi reader where I am more likely to binge on Netflix. We both have lived and worked abroad separately and together. The next big trip we are planning is to Vietnam. Neither of us have traveled to the East before. Cheers!
