Christened Naulakha, a Hindi word meaning “jewel beyond price”, this home, which sleeps 8, was designed by Rudyard Kipling to resemble a ship with his study in the prow. Here, Kipling wrote the Jungle Books and Captains Courageous and began Kim and the Just So Stories. In 1892 Rudyard Kipling and his new American bride bought 12 acres on a Vermont hillside while on their around-the-world honeymoon. By year’s end they had begun construction of their dream home which overlooked the Connecticut River Valley.
