Michael was accessible prior to our arrival making it very easy to finalize our plans. He greeted us upon arrival and welcomed us into his home, making sure we got settled and were comfortable. Michael has lived in Burlington for many years so is very knowledgeable about the local area and a great resource for information. His home is ideally located near town and UVM. Breakfast was delicious!
Michael was a great host! Very inviting and informative about the area. Everything you would ask for in a host. The house was beautiful and right in downtown Burlington. Private off street parking was great and very convenient. It was a 2 minute walk to all of the bars, shops, and restaurants. What I enjoyed the most was the breakfast Micheal prepared . Overall I couldn't have asked for anything more.
We had a great stay with Michael. First he offered to pick us up from the airport on a Friday evening. The room was spacious and had all the amenities one would need. Everything was very clean and welcoming. He even let us borrow his bikes for the day Saturday so we could see as much of Burlington as possible. And gave us some great tips on dining and drinking in Burlington. And of course the breakfast was a terrific start to both of our days, complete with Vermont syrup for our waffles, and muffins for snacking.
The location was great for seeing downtown and Church Street, the University, and getting to/from the airport. Especially if you prefer to travel on foot or bike. I wish we could've stayed longer to see more of town.
I would recommend Michael's room to anyone. Overall a great stay!
My first visit to Burlington and it was fantastic to stay at Mike's. All the reviews here are accurate. Perfect host. He makes a delightful homemade breakfast and is comfortable sitting down to have breakfast with you and help you plan your day or give you recommendations. He graciously loaned me his bike lock as I cruised around Burlington and made my 30mile round trip cycle to The Islands and back. Location is ideal-- city vibe and only 2 blocks from Church St. What more could you ask for? If you are a female traveling alone, like myself, it can be unnerving to stay at a private home with a male host you don't know. Trust me, Mike is the consummate professional and compassionate host. You can put your mind as ease, ladies! My cycle trip took longer than I had planned during my stay and when I got back, Mike kindly conveyed his concern but glad I had a great time. Can't wait to come back to Burlington - of course I'll stay @ Mike's! There is no other option in my mind.
What a great way to visit Burlington for the first time. The house is beautiful and sits in an awesome location. The host was fun to chat with at breakfast and throughout the day. If you need to know a little history about the city, the host is the guy to talk to. The breakfast he cooks each morning was the icing on the Burlington cake.
It is safe to say our expectations were completely met and exceeded. Highly recommended.
Perhaps our only regret staying at Mike’s was that we had stayed for only a day. Mike was a gracious host, and we thoroughly enjoyed his hospitality and the conversations we had. He made sure we knew our way to his property, which is perfectly located between the downtown (Church St. area) and UVM, and provided us with solid recommendations for sightseeing and eating in town. Our most memorable experience, however, must be the wonderful breakfast he prepared for us the next morning, despite his busy work schedule. It was not only delicious but very filling. We look forward to visiting him again in Burlington.
Our stay with Michael was very enjoyable. He greeted us when we arrived and showed us around his home. We enjoyed chatting with him each morning over delicious gourmet breakfast he prepared, it was different every day and always wonderful! The location was perfect for exploring the city, and he was full of information about where to go and what to do. We'll definitely be staying again if we visit Burlington!

About the Host, Michael
I like to host and entertain in my distinctive century-old townhouse. When I travel I seek unique lodging experiences which are comfortable and convenient, and I strive to provide the same. I have visited all corners of the US, a good portion of Europe and East Asia. Meeting a wide-range of people is enjoyable. I enjoy meeting people and have the ability to hold up my end of the conversation in most any situation.
Originally a farm boy from the Midwest, I have been in Vermont for 15 years. I've found many hidden treasures and like to share those with family and friends.
I embrace diversity. "Everything in moderation," has been a good life motto for me.
