Dog-friendly vacation rental: History and charm in Vermont

In my last post, I mentioned that a handful of Landmark Trust properties are located in the United States and managed by Landmark Trust USA. They include Rudyard Kipling’s Vermont home, a 200 year-old farm that for 20 years was home to Carthusian monks, a Greek Revival farmhouse with magnificent views of Mount Monadnock, and a cozy former sugarhouse located near Brattleboro.

Upon enquiry, I learned that the Sugarhouse is dog-friendly. There is no limit on the number of dogs that can visit with you, or their size, but they must be picked up after and kept on a leash or close by. They must not be left alone on the property, and need to be kept off the furniture and bed. Since the Sugarhouse is located on a farm, visitors need to be aware that there are multiple dogs and sheep living nearby. There is no extra fee for dogs, but the company will keep your credit card on file until checkout in case of damage.
