Hosting weekend guests from May 1 to October 31
Our spacious Federalist style yellow brick home rests on the bluff overlooking the Connecticut River which forms the boundary between Vermont and New Hampshire. The property consists of 38 acres which are used for forestry, organic produce, and growing flowers, all of which add to the appeal (and our guests’ appetites) of the Butternut Lane BnB.
The Loveland House in 1890, as seen from across the Connecticut River
Built in 1821 by George and John Loveland, this Upper Valley landmark has been in the family from construction to the present — six generations! The main house has seen little change in the nearly 200 years of family ownership. The original horse hair plaster walls and ceilings were saved where feasible throughout the house. All the soft pine random width floors are original. The brick exterior was made with bricks manufactured on site.
The only major change took place in the mid 1860s when a frame house from the village, 2.7 miles away, was towed to its current location and attached to the brick house. That allowed the Lovelands of that day to remove the kitchen fireplace and put a “modern” kitchen in the newly attached ell.
