We live in a unique neighborhood near the lake. The space is a walk out basement with a bedroom, sitting/working area and 1/2 bath. Shower is a 2 second walk to our art studio. We live at the edge of a forest, are a short walk to the beach, Red Rocks Park, the bike path and bus line. We are 5 minutes from downtown Burlington,and 10 minutes from the airport. We have a canoe and a few bikes available for your use. Our spot would be perfect for a couple, a couple with a child, solo adventurers.
The space is our walkout basement. It’s about 500 square feet and includes a bedroom with Queen bed, a sitting room with a twin bed/couch, desk, armoire, and dresser, ½ bath and private entrance. There is a frig, electric kettle, and coffee maker along with coffee, a variety of tea , milk or cream, sugar, and honey. Outside is a café table where you can sit and enjoy the dappled light. To shower you will walk up the outside steps to our art studio, so we recommend bringing a robe. The space is nice and cool in the summer, and there is heat if you should need it.
The bedroom does not have a door but the entire space is lockable.
You have the run of our back yard, garden area, badminton and the studio shower area. Our upstairs and deck are private. You are also welcome to use our canoe and odd bicycles.
We work at home and are very available to answer questions or offer whatever help you may need. We can recommend places to eat and things to see, and wish you to feel very welcome at our house.
Our land is bordered on the east by railroad tracks and once or twice a day a train comes through. It’s never at night so it has little impact on us.
Our cat may come visit-he’s friendly and likes to be scratched on the sides of his face and under his chin. He’s generally cautious with newcomers at first, though he may get in your car when you aren’t looking!
We have a neighbor who can be noisy at times, but rarely at night. He’s moving at the end of July!
- Absolutely no smoking
- We tend to be quiet-please be respectful of noise levels. No loud music please
I live with my husband of 40 years in Vermont. For most of those years we had our own design business, completing projects in New England, New York City, San Francisco, France, India, Japan and Mexico. We have 2 sons and a grandchild. I am an artist, have painted enormous murals, co-founded a traveling theater, have journeyed to far off lands, and like to scare myself by riding around the countryside alone on my horse camping in the forest. I love to eat!
