My place is just outside of Chester, centrally located between Bellows Falls, Londonderry, and Ludlow. Great summer activities all around. It's off the beaten path, quiet and surrounded by beauty. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
I have a dog and a cat in the house. The cat is a total recluse, you won't see her. The dog is an extrovert, very gentle temperament. She doesn't go upstairs (your space) & spends much of the day happily in the backyard.
Kitchen, front porch, fire pit.
As mentioned in the description I have a dog and a cat, and also chickens that free range. I'm open to having dogs come along, but they must be cat friendly and not chase the chickens. If your dog has never been around chickens, then assume she/he will chase them and thus, keep your friend on a leash.
I'm a psychology professor at UMass Boston where I mentor doctoral students and conduct research. In my off time though, I love living up in the woods of Vermont where I spend a lot of time in nature, playing with my dog Tess, collecting eggs from my chickens, making sawdust in my workshop or out for a ride on pedal powered and motorized two-wheeled vehicle.
I love to travel to experience nature in other environments, and also to get a dose of the city vibe here and there.
