About this listing
Comfortable 2-bedroom suite with its own entrance in Burlington's New North End. Three miles from downtown, four from the Univ. of Vermont. Easy walk (or bike ride) to Lake Champlain, the Burlington bike path, and Leddy Park.
We're near Lake Champlain. It's a basement suite with its own entrance, so you can be assured of privacy. The suite can sleep five-- we have a king-size bed in one bedroom, a full-size bed in the other, and there is a pull-out couch in the living room. The bedrooms have big windows and are quite sunny. The suite also has a large living room, a full bathroom, and a kitchen with microwave (but no stove). We're equipped with cable t.v. and Wi-Fi internet.
We are about a 20-minute walk from North Beach, and 5 minutes from the Burlington bike path, which runs along the lakeshore. We have bikes you can borrow, if you like. My husband and I both work days, full time, so we would like you to check in after 4:30 p.m., if possible. If this is not possible give us a call and we'll figure something out. Small dogs are okay-- I love animals.
There will be an extra charge of $25 per person per night if there are more than two people in your group (not counting babies).
The Burlington bike path is beautiful, the lake and mountains will give you wonderful memories. It's a 20 minute bike ride from my house to Church Street and the waterfront at the foot of Main Street and you can explore downtown Burlington, enjoy good food and lots of activities.

Shouyan's space was exactly as listed and was super convenient for us to stay and get to downtown easily. Everything was clean and the check in process was easy. We only stayed one night but would definitely recommend it if in the area.
Great location in Burlington! My daughter and I stayed at Shouyan's home located in a nice neighborhood. Her family is very friendly and accommodating to our late arrival. We were pleasantly surprised to learn the rental is a private 2b/1ba basement apartment with kitchenette.
Privacy and space for 5 people!
Shouyan was a wonderful host she was so nice and welcoming. The suite we rented was fantastic and I loved it's location. My gel friend especially loved the beautiful garden outside.
We stayed one night at Shouyan's place. The room corresponds to the description and the location is good in a really quiet neighborhood. We arrived late (23:00) but Shouyan and her husband welcome us perfectly.
A perfect location for our needs. Close to family, the Heineburg Senior Center, and my favorite discovery, the nearness of the Burlington Bike Path (even biked across Lake Champlain via the bike causeway and ferry!)
Shouyan and her husband Jim, plus their ever helpful son Jeremy, were wonderful hosts. They gave us privacy yet were always available for assistance or information.
One of their treats was a selection of bicycles that they adjusted to our needs (seat height, handlebars) and kept in ready to go maintenance.
Extended cable TV plus Netflix was available for our down times, and a direct bus to downtown Burlington was a five minute easy walk away.
The apartment was spacious, clean, and in full working order.
Maybe most importantly, having gone to Vermont from Texas in the summer, was the full easy use of heat at night as needed. The thermostat was not locked or turned off, and always there for our use.
Though a basement apartment, each room had windows for light, and most of them were in easy reach for opening as desired.
All in all, a wonderful highly recommended experience for anyone, young or old, short or long stay (and we were there 5 weeks!)
The hosts were very accommodating and enthusiastic about making us feel at home and comfortable. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and the beds made for a good night sleep. Plenty of parking.
This getaway in Burlington is absolutely lovely. Shouyan was extremely friendly and hospitable, and the apartment was super clean. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything that we needed. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and was exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend Shouyan's apartment to anyone looking to stay in Burlington.
