About this listing
Little Place is your own little place in town, an urban pied-à-terre with everything you need to make yourself at home away from home. 10-minute walk to downtown, walking distance to UVM, lake, bike path.
People-watch from the new rooftop deck. (See Little Place 2 if this listing is booked -- also with its own deck -- my temporary amateur pics don't do it justice. Or rent both and meet on this middle deck.) This apartment is your own little place in town, an urban pied-a-terre with everything you need to be at home away from home. Located in Burlington's vibrant Old North End, it's two doors away from the neighborhood gathering place/coffee shop, Barrio Bakery (they have delicious vegan baked goods, too, and dine-in pizza Wednesday through Saturday evenings). It's about a 10-minute walk to downtown, half a block from an Asian Market with fresh produce as well as great takeout, and there's a convenience store across the street. Walking distance to the waterfront and bike paths, the University of Vermont, and Fletcher Allen Hospital. 45-minute drive to Stowe. Private entrance, queen bed, equipped kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), off-street parking, WiFi, AC, hairdryer, couch clicks flat for a third guest. Coffee, tea, milk, juice, organic granola provided. Smoke-free.
Posted price includes cleaning fee and the 11% VT room and meals tax. Single-night reservations or a third guest is an additional $20 — please message me so I may send a special offer with the correct rate. During summer and foliage season, single-night reservations on the weekends will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. The apartment is the top floor front of my triplex.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the backyard but their own deck is more private and less buggy. They have an assigned parking space at the front right-hand side of the driveway.
Interaction with Guests
I like to meet my guests when they arrive or soon after (I work part time away from home) and orient them to the apartment and the local amenities. I'm a knock on the door away if I'm home or available by cell phone if I'm not. I respect the guests' privacy although I'm always happy to run into them in passing and hear about their adventures.
The Old North End is close to everything and home to new families, long-time residents, students, artists, immigrants and is enjoying a revival with many start-up businesses, pop-up cafes, community gardens.
One-night stay is $195, 11% VT room and meals tax included.
Not really suitable for more than two guests (although the couch clicks flat to a non-standard bed size in a pinch) or children under 12.
I live on the first floor, reasonable courtesies expected.
LED candles provided for flame-free ambience.
