A Room for the Jobless at the Rabbit Hill Inn? Write In…

The Rabbit Inn (rabbithillinn.com)

Leslie Mulcahy, owner of the idyllic Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, VT,  and a guest in our second hour today (listen to the audio streaming), is accepting new requests from those who have lost jobs to stay at the Inn for free. As a sidenote, she is extending an invitation to one of our other guests, Dwight Frazee, who lost his job as a construction worker.

Please e-mail Leslie at “info at rabbithillinn.com” or send a note to her at “Rabbit Hill Inn, PO box 55, Lower Waterford, VT 05848.” Include a little background on yourself and details of your unemployment situation. She cannot extend an invitation to every person who writes her, but hopes to accommodate as many couples as she can. The Inn is booked through the fall, but will begin hosting families again in the winter.

    Not having a job creates real financial and living stress. While I’m lucky with a new and decent paying job. We just went through 3yrs yrs of under paid employment. The stress can eat you alive. A break like the one offered here can really help by providing hope and possibly enable some insight, or new view point that can lead to fulfilling employment. Good luck to all who can go. Bravo to the owners of the Inn.
