About this listing
My partner and I are located on 10 acres of property, in Monkton Vermont, with a large lawn and a forested area. The upstairs bedroom has a double bed. There are 2 full bathrooms. One is upstairs and shared. The other is on the ground floor and can be your private bathroom during your stay. If you need more rooms. Please look at the other listing on this site. There is a room with 2 twin beds off the kitchen area on the other listing.
The kitchen has lots of windows and a wood stove. We have 2 cats and a dog, but the bedrooms are animal free. You will need a car unless you are an avid biker.
Addison County is conducive to an active lifestyle, is home to a bounty of local food and is scenic in every part, in every season.This is a wonderful place for a quiet getaway, landing place while attending a graduation or a wedding. We are equidistance from Middlebury and Burlington as well as the ski resorts and the shores of Lake Champlain, all less then 45 minutes drive.The beautiful town of Bristol VT, "Gateway to the Green Mountains", is located 7 miles from the house. Bristol offers a range of restaurants and 2 bakeries. a few attractions are Rocky Dale Gardens, Compton Pottery Studio and Dale Helms Fine Furniture. Bristol is home to some fine swimming holes also within minutes from the house.

No Smoking. Breakfast time is flexible Gluten free, vegan and vegetarian can be accommodated. We take our shoes off in the house and expect guests to do so as well.
My sister and I felt very much at home here! Contact was great before and during the trip so we had no problems. They had an adorable golden retriever and a cat that made sure you had fun. Cassandra and john were very accomidating, and if we needed anything they would help. Great organic foods! Slegreat too, very warm and comfortable for the cold winter nights. :3
Our stay at Cassandra's was a delight. Her quiet and comfortable house is located in beautiful northern Vermont (which is mind-blowing during fall by the way). Cassandra and her husband are very nice and welcoming persons who keep their house clean and are such interesting people to talk to. I would definitely come back next time I go to Vermont.
We had a very enjoyable stay at Cassandra and Jonathan's house. They are very welcoming and easy going and their house is located in a beautiful spot, ideal for touring the area, whether you like hiking or cultural visits.
We stayed in the upstairs full bedroom for one evening. Cassandra and dog Luca (sp?) greeted us warmly as we pulled into the driveway, then helped us settle in. The room was charmingly decorated, with fresh-cut flowers on the bedside table.
Our hosts were very thoughtful, and made us feel at home while still offering us privacy. Breakfast was delicious and made from fresh ingredients. As other reviewers have mentioned, both their cat and dog are very good-natured, and their company was an unexpected perk to the stay. Definitely recommend.
We were warmly welcomed as soon as we drove up the driveway. We were met by Cassandra and their wonderful dog. We were shown our room and immediately felt like we were at home.
The home was very close to where we had to travel each day, plus it was close to many sights worth seeing.
Their dog and cat are as as warm, friendly, and lovely as their owners. There were times the kids didn't want to leave the house because they just wanted to stay and play with the animals.
The house was clean and comfortable. Cassandra and John helped us feel right at home. it is obvious when you take in the view of their property, that they love gardening. it's hard to believe that people live this way year round. We didn't want to leave. As long as Cassandra and John will have us, we'll definitely be back.
Our stay with Cassandra and her family was amazing. Their house is beautiful and very clean. Cassandra’s cooking filled the house with wonderful smells. They have a young golden who does not know how to fetch very well, he plays a version that is far closer to keep away J We stayed in the bedroom upstairs and were able to relax in the morning listening to the birds outside. The bed was very comfortable. Will stay here again without hesitation if we are in the area.
I only stayed for a very short time but the other reviews are accurate -- nice, clean place with wonderful hosts in a peaceful setting; animals are adorable and friendly as well; I plan to stay again in the near future.
