Laurie and Mark were excellent hosts. Their basement apartment was exactly what we were looking for for a quiet long weekend away from our busy lives. We stayed in and played pool, cooked, watched movies and relaxed in the hot tub. We also enjoyed exploring Burlington and Shelburne (sugaring season was a highlight!), and skiing not too far away at Stowe.
Thanks Laurie and Mark for providing a great and needed getaway!
We stayed in Laurie and Mark's lovely basement apartment in Shelburne, VT for five nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was perfect for our family of four (two teenagers) and we enjoyed cooking meals in, watching movies, making popcorn and playing pool, in the cozy space they have created, and doing things out and about town during the day. The location was perfect for us and I used the local state of the art indoor athletic facility nearby. They were warm, welcoming and helpful hosts, and we could not have found a better place for our needs to reconnect as a family.
Laurie & Mark were amazing hosts. They were friendly, helpful, and offered some great suggestions on activities and dining in the area. The accommodations were even more than expected - clean, spacious, and so homey and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone and hope to come back as soon as we can!
Laurie & Mark were very welcoming and their home was nicely decorated. The suite was spacious and fully stocked with everything you could need...towels, kitchen, large sectional couch & big screen TV, gas fireplace, and the sauna was a huge bonus.
I didn't quite understand from the listing that Laurie & Mark were living above the space, but they were pretty quiet.
Laurie was great! She is very friendly and fun. Our accommodations were beautiful and so comfortable. My friends and I felt like we were at home there. The surrounding area is beautiful!!
Laurie and Mark's place worked out perfectly for a day-long retreat with my colleagues. Their basement suite offered a gas stove, full kitchen, and pool table. On a really cold winter day, it was perfectly cozy.
Everything about this place is awesome. Laurie and mark were super welcoming and accommodating. Great getaway spot close to Burlington.
We arrived during an ice storm which hadn't happened in like 10 years. No matter, Laurie and Mark were there waiting for our arrival. They offered us soup and a nice warm comfy place to rest our heads (after a 5 hour drive). They welcomed my rambunctious puppy as well. Laurie and Mark walked us through the studio space which was absolutely lovely and comfortable and plush. There was even a lovely warm fire.
The next day, we all (including Mark and Laurie) went on a snowy hike in the woods behind their home. It was great! They have so much energy!!! We were exhausted. Like I said it was great, because we got to chat with them and get to know them.
It was an amazing trip and our hosts were nothing short of great, kind, friendly and generous people. We were sad to leave and especially crestfallen to not have been able to say goodbye since we had to leave while they were away.
If ever you want to travel to VT, I would recommend staying with these two welcoming and hospitable people.
What a lovely home and what a great garden to sit and breathe in. We spent a long weekend resting in the back yard where we grilled food and visited with all the members of their garden- flowers, butterflies, frogs... Our pooch took long naps on the grass by the pool... It was what we needed as Manhattenites: to get away from it all without having to give up comfort at all... We didn't get to Meet Laurie & Mark until our last day...wow. What good people. Of course they created this home... Go take some time off here, and if you're into it, get some time with the hosts.
So glad things worked out for you to getaway! We are always happy when someone else can enjoy the fruits of our labor in the gardens. When you come again, we will DEFINITELY have the hot tub up and running-Did you know there is a far infrared sauna in the suite? I am not sure if that is on our listing. Anyhow, that works nicely w. the hot tub in the winter esp. We were so happy we got the chance to meet you lovely people ( dog is included as a "people" right? ) Take Care, Laurie and Mark
Aside from the little check-in snafu, we had a great stay at Laurie & Mark's. The basement room was a great space for the four of us, and was super comfortable. Was perfect for all our comings & goings mainly around Burlington. The pool & porch area were major highlights! They go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their home- I hope to meet them if I ever travel that way again! Thanks Laurie & Mark :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
