Interaction with Guests
I will be available upon your arrival and will happily acquaint you with the area when I am not travel. I will have someone be my hostess if I am out of town.
Our neighborhood is quiet, yet it is close to town, and easy to travel north or south . The house is on the loop of TAM ( Trail Around Middlebury) The hiking trail stars right on my door step.
It is 3.5 hours from Boston. 2 hours to Montreal. 5.5 hours to New York City. The Addison County Regional Transit bus makes 4 round trips a day to Burlington.
Up stairs bedrooms are carpeted. I recommend guest to leave outdoor shoes at downstairs. It is safer to walk on the old steps without shoes on.
The listing on airbnb was very accurate. Yinglei was a wonderful host who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. She did everything she could to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The house had everything we needed and the kitchen was well equipped for an enjoyable breakfast. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while we were in Middlebury to watch our college son swim.
Yinglei has natural enthusiasm for life, guests, art and Vermont. I was comfortable every moment thanks to Yinglei's generosity. I look forward to returning.
Quaint, cozy, and comfortable sum up our experience in Yinglei's home. Yinglei was a wonderful hostess and made us feel welcome in her home right away. She was interested in getting to know us, and prepared breakfast for us one morning. She was also very flexible when we had to add another night last minute. We would definitely stay with Yinglei again
I had a splendid stay--Yinglei was a wonderful hostess! She was extremely gracious and welcoming. She went out of her way to see to it that I had everything I needed, including a deluxe breakfast each morning (4). The accommodations were clean, quiet, and very comfortable. And Yinglei was delightful company, too, an interesting and talented woman. She was very accessible and her communication was great. Sharing a bathroom is never enjoyable but the other guests were tidy enough and Yinglei seemed to stay on top of keeping it clean. It was a little farther from campus than I'd hoped but the setting is nice and getting to campus is not difficult.
Yinglei was out of town, but Toby was the host and she me feel welcome and was thoughtful in attending to various needs. The house is lovely and the location is excellent, with an easy walk to downtown Middlebury. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and I especially appreciated the quality of the linens. In all, a wonderful stay and I would certainly book again.
I stayed two nights in Yinglei's home. The private room and house were very comfortable and quiet. I particularly enjoyed the small second floor kitchen with windows on three sides all overlooking the back garden. I sat out in the back garden to eat a couple of meals. The house is conveniently located within walking distance of grocery shopping and the center of Middlebury.
Yinglei was an amazing host! We had no problem getting into the house (she was out of town but had a friend on call if we needed anything). There was a full kitchen for our use which included baked goods, lots of tea and coffee, fresh fruits, all types of cereal and even sausage for us to cook up a hearty breakfast. The place was clean and beautiful. We were able to eat on the porch that overlooked the town of middlebury. We will definitely come back!
