Quiet, private 3rd floor suite with your own bathroom, queen bed and sitting area with extra, single bed. Our home is a comfortable, lovingly restored Victorian on quiet street and a short walk to downtown and the university. Continental breakfast included.
Your private space is located on our third floor of our restored Victorian home. At the top of the stairs is an open entry room with a single bed/couch that adjoins the bedroom (but separated by a door). The bedroom is located at the back of the house and has a queen-size bed, air conditioner and "smart" TV (Netflix and a few network channels). The bathroom is newly restored and light-filled, with a clawfoot tub (fully modernized with shower). There is separate access from each room to the bathroom. Your 3rd floor suite is private and quiet. You are welcome to use the other common spaces in our home including the living room, dining room, and wrap-around porch.
This home is occupied by the owners but the 3rd floor is yours to enjoy privately.
Kitchen: Separate guest fridge. Guests may use our kitchen to prepare a simple meal with a little notice.
The living room has 3 comfy couches, a wood burning fireplace, and grand piano.
Laundry (on the second floor, $5 fee).
Full wrap-around porch with seating for relaxing or enjoying a meal. Off-street parking.
We are generally here to greet you, provide suggestions for activities & dining and share information about the local area and Vermont. For your convenience, we serve a continental breakfast which includes fruit or smoothie, cereals, bread, yogurt, milk & juice. Usually, we are happy to also prepare eggs or hot cereal if you let us know in advance. To help us prepare for your visit, please let us know at least a week ahead if you have special dietary needs such as gluten-free, dairy-free or vegan.
We donate 5% of our profits to a local organization. The last couple of years this has been The Champlain Housing Trust, whose mission is to support the people of Northwest Vermont and strengthen their communities through the development and stewardship of permanently affordable homes.
Our house is properly permitted for the B&B, and we pay all meals and rooms taxes (11%). Starting Oct. 1, 2016, Airbnb will begin collecting and remitting the Vermont Meals and Rooms Taxes on our behalf.
We have a 2 or 3 night minimum depending on the dates and how far in advance you book. Please feel free to ask for any exceptions to these restrictions except for UVM graduation weekend, UVM Homecoming & Family Weekend and Memorial Day/Burlington Marathon weekend.
As is common in an older home, the stairs to the 3rd floor suite are a bit steep, so we are very happy to help you with your bags.
There is no smoking. We need reasonably quiet guests, and most other special needs can be worked out in advance.
We both came originally from New York, but are now long-time Vermonters with some serious roots here. We still love exploring this beautiful area, on foot, by kayak, bike and even car, and all it has to offer - and sharing it. We also love to travel, and know what we like when far away, and try to provide it, for our guests, here.
