About This Listing
Whether you are in VT for a leaf-peep and a hike, a ski trip, or a beer-cation, Luci's 'Mont House is your retreat at the end of a busy day! Walking distance to amazing restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Or stay in and cook in the well-equipped kitchen.

Welcome to this in-town cottage located in the village of Waterbury, VT! This cozy house offers three bedrooms, with a queen-size bed, a full-size bed, and two bunk beds, along with one bathroom. Lots of character and cozy spaces make for a welcome retreat after a busy day of travel.
Expect a comfortable stay featuring lofted ceilings, a fully equipped kitchen (with gas range and dishwasher), patio and barbecue, and toys and games to keep everyone occupied on a rainy afternoon. Wireless internet, local broadcast TV, and unlimited US and Canada calling on the house phone are all included. The house sits on a quiet dead-end street within a 5-minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants.
The house is one "block" from a great natural playground. Within 5-minutes walking (about a quarter mile) you will find yourself in the heart of Waterbury Village, known for its great restaurants, featuring hearty meals (think local meats/cheeses/veggies) and vast beer selection (both locally made and from around the world). The shops include grocer, local book shops, antiques, a toy store, etc. Don't forget a visit to Green Mountain Coffee (within walking distance and also the site of the Amtrak station) and Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory (a 5-minute drive).
Arrive via highway (located right off I-89), bicycle, or Amtrak train. Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, and Bolton Valley resorts are all within 30 minutes drive. Burlington, VT is also about 30 minutes drive. The village of Waterbury also offers a skate rink, swimming pool, performance center, reservoir with beach, walking trails, farmer's markets, live music and events all year round! If this is your first time visiting, you will be amazed at how much there is to do in the area.
The house is our family getaway away and we want to share it with you! Known to us as Luci's 'Mont House (our then 2-year-old daughter's naming), we hope you will enjoy the place as much as we do. While it's certainly not fancy, you will find the place comfortable, quiet, and a great place to come home to after what is sure to be a busy day in this great part of Vermont!

Plan to walk within the village - it's a lovely place to walk around, the sidewalks are generally plowed, and you will enjoy views of the mountains from the quiet streets of Waterbury.

If you want a nice and cozy house and at the same time live on walking distance to central Waterbury, this is it.
Communication with Alicia and detailed information about the house were spot on and the house had everything you could ever need.
Would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again (if)when I come back to Vermont!
We were 2 couples doing a beer trip in Waterbury area. We found a nice house, at the end of a quiet street. Only 3 minutes of the main street and te grocery ! The house was very clean and well equiped ! You just have to know that a train pass quiet close, sometimes ;-) Not an issue at all though ! Can't wait to go back again !
My girlfriends and I enjoyed this perfect little cottage for our weekend in Vermont. It had everything we needed to make ourselves feel at home.
This is our second time staying at Alicia's. We feel very comfortable staying at her home. Very clean and spacious. It also has all of the amenities we need to cook our meals with the great local ingredients. It's also so nice being able to quickly stroll to the downtown area. Now we just need to a good reason to stay again!
The location of this home could not have been better! A very brief walk to downtown Waterbury made this cottage perfect for our trip. The home itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We would definitely book Luci's Mont House again for our next trip to Waterbury.
The house was exactly as described: clean, comfortable, and with a great location close to the mountains and within walking distance of downtown Waterbury. Host was very responsive and everything went smoothly, they even accommodated an early-than-usual check in!
The cottage was great! You couldn't ask for a better location for skiing and beer hunting. The short walk to the various restaurants of Waterbury was a huge plus (even through the -15˚ temperatures!), and there was plenty of skiing within a short drive.
The layout of the cottage was nice, with the open kitchen allowing those doing cooking to still talk to people in the living room.
I'm already thinking about coming back next year!

About the Host, Alicia
My husband, Craig, and I are raising our two girls, ages 2 and 4, in beautiful Colchester, VT. We love to commute by foot and by bicycle, spend our free time outdoors whenever possible, and enjoy eating all of the fresh, local foods that abound in VT. Hosting guests, both in our home and in our Waterbury cottage, is one of our great joys because we have met so many wonderful people and we love to share our spaces to provide a more "real" travel experience.
