About This Listing
Enjoy this cozy, warm historic apartment and be close to Vermont's best ski areas - Sugarbush, Stowe, and Bolton Valley are under 40 min drive. You are a walk to downtown Montpelier, America's smallest capital and shops, live music, and craft beer.
This is a little home within a home in a fun historic house, which dates back to the 1860's. Everything is modernized, but the historic charm remains.
We invite you to enjoy the view in out quiet back yard during times we are not at home. The view of the valley, with the gold dome of the capitol building and Camel's Hump beyond is truly breathtaking!
We love to give you autonomy, but are very happy to provide advice as needed and assistance during times of need. Bob is a physician, which has proved helpful at times :-)
This is an extremely quiet neighborhood in the very best part of town.
There is a city bus which stops right in front of the house, or you are able to walk downtown in 10 minutes.
We have many things to loan - kayaks in the summer and snowshoes in the winter! Or. just about anything you have forgotten, since this is a family home. We have lots of extra jackets and snow pants, etc.
We are a quiet group. We don't even watch television. The kids use headphones, and any sound you might hear would be when William practices his oboe in the room over the garage - which is very far away from where you stay (and happens less than we would desire :-)
We (2 couples) stayed with Beth and Bob over President's day weekend when we went to Vermont to ski. The upstairs apt was spacious and well organized for even 3 couples with a bathroom and kitchen. The apt was great, well heated and perfect for our weekend. Bob and Beth were super nice and very helpful, greeting us as we arrived (even though it was very late), offering to help us with anything we needed (skis & provisions) and always available if we had any question. I would definitely recommend to anybody visiting Vermont to stay with them and look forward to going back!! Thank you Bob & Beth!!
My friends and I very much enjoyed staying here. Beth is a great host, and the space is a perfect quiet retreat, only a 10 minute walk to downtown Montpelier. She also did a great job communicating with me leading up to the day we arrived. She checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and happy. The place was well stocked with everything we needed and is exactly what someone would picture a Vermont home to be. Beds were super comfortable, and everything was very clean. Hoping to stay here again.
Beth is a delightful, warm and friendly host. She made my associate and me feel very welcome by always being very quick with communications, giving us an informative tour of her historic home, and offering great recommendations on places to eat and visit while in Montpelier. We were here on a business trip, but I intend to come back and stay with Beth (if she'll have us!) for a personal vacation in the future.
Thank you so much Beth for making us feel welcome, and for an excellent stay in Montpelier!
Beth and Bob made us very welcome and took us through the house and provided a big range of consumable items and slippers and dressing gowns. Very well equiped kitchen and beds were great. The neighbourhood seemed very safe and a quiet family street. Great advice on the Italian restaurant and good location as plenty to do in the area. The visitor information centre was great and we had a wonderful day in Woodstock and norfield via route 12 and keeping off the freeway. Thanks Beth and Bob.
Great hosts! I misunderstood the listing, expected a sitting area. No problem, the next day they converted one of the bedrooms into one! Wow. We also needed more cookware and Beth pulled out a pile of pots and pans. Sweet. Really went the extra mile. And it was all nicely arranged. We fell asleep to crickets and awoke to birdsong. We would stay here again.
Beth and Bob were great, they were helpful in any means and they made us feel welcome. We loved our time in in their house as 4 college students who seeked a piece of mind for the weekend but its not a place if you want to forget the part of your time there.

About the Host, Beth
Hi - I'm an instructional designer, educator, artist, school principal, architect, mom, gardener, cook, and adventure enthusiast - I just love outdoors and the weather. My historic house is the work of my life, as I have helped to design and build it into the beautiful space you see. The front of the house was the Commandant's house in the Civil War Infirmary and was rolled down the street from the College green on logs in the late 1800's. We live in the back of the home (it is a very LONG house) - my son, who is 14, and my partner Bob, and our bird Dah - who is 25 years old (at least)...anything you need is probably here and we are happy to loan things you forget (kayaks, snow shoes, nordic skis, warm outerwear, boots, you name it!)
Hope you'll come visit us soon!
