    DUMMERSTON — A building on property in Vermont that was once the home of author Rudyard Kipling is now open to vacationers for rent.

    The carriage house sits just a stone’s throw from Naulakha (now-LAH’-kuh), the Dummerston home that Kipling built in the 1890s and where he wrote “The Jungle Book” and other works.

    The Landmark Trust USA is preparing the Carriage House, which dates to the 1890s, for its first renters at the end of the month, the Brattleboro Reformer reports (http://bit.ly/19sEcyV).

    The first floor housed Kipling’s carriage and a greenhouse. Servants’ quarters were upstairs.

    “Here we are with this amazing property, which is now empty and in perfect condition,” said Kelly Carlin, the trust’s regional property manager. “It’s got historical significance. It’s a perfect complement to Naulakha.”

    The trust already rents out the Naulakha to short-term tenants. The home, named after a book Kipling co-authored about an Indian jewel, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1993.
