One private bedroom with bath in an elegant, Victorian home near university and downtown. Located in one of Burlington's most historic neighborhoods. Easy walking distance to all Burlington has to offer including the waterfront, downtown, University of Vermont, and Champlain College
Nice private office area for client use on ground floor, great for longer term visitors.
The waterfront is in view of the house's porch. Lake Champlain is 20 minutes downhill with its scenic bike path, boat trips, and waterfront museum. A bus line runs right in front of the house to reach the village of Shelburne and the famous Shelburne Museum.
Excellent access to all things Vermont including easy access to ski slopes for winter fun.
Large backyard with scenic porch and deck available to guests when weather permits. High speed internet via one of the fastest internet systems in America. Parking is abundant with provided permit.
Owners live and work in the house and will facilitate a great stay in vibrant Burlington. They are active community members, history buffs, and in tune with all Burlington has to offer. Learn about Vermont, its history, and all of the wonderful things about the State while visiting. Two cockapoos, hypoallergenic dogs, are friendly residents.
House is also within walking distance of the Megabus stop and the ferry.
We now include all rooms and meals taxes in our price, we have been successful enough that that is now required! We do not serve breakfast, coffee or tea as a standard guest service. This is a question of not entering into the food and beverage business, which will require other types of permits in future, and we would prefer to stay strictly with hosting guests. We are happy to provide our refrigerator for left overs and snacks. But unfortunately we cannot offer food or beverages to Airbnb guests except when you are joining us personally for a coffee or tea, which we are happy to do when the timing is right.
Guests have access to their room and a lovely sitting room with desk and internet on the ground floor.
Interaction with Guests
We love to have tea or coffee with our guests after they have had time to relax and get comfortable. We are happy to share information about the many wonderful options for activities, food and shopping in Burlington. We also love to talk about Burlington's history and about Vermont if our guests are interested. We have lived here 23 years and enjoy sharing stories about the State. It is a unique state with a very independent and fascinating history.
Our neighborhood is quiet, leafy, the ideal dream come true New England community, with many old Victorian homes, kids going to school right down the block and a 10-15 minute walk to our vibrant downtown, with music, great food, and shopping. The waterfront is just 15-20 mins walking with boating, a world renowned bike and walking path and fun restaurants.
Hablamos espanol bastante bien y nos gustaria recibir clientes de Espana y America Latina!
Other Things to Note
Owners are committed environmentalists. They use solar hot water for washing all laundry for their Airbnb guests and in summer they dry all of the linens and towels on an outdoor line. In winter, we have retrofitted the house with efficient appliances, and have done a great deal of insulating to keep the house comfortable and warm. We use a wood stove for supplementing our heat. We are very appreciative of guests who turn off lights when they are not using them.
Owners expect quiet after 10PM.
About the Host, Megan
I am an avid participant in the Airbnb community. I have become friends with my regular hosts in Boston and now enjoy hosting visitors in my home. I have had wonderful stays with hosts in New Orleans and the Bahamas. This is a vibrant community and a great way to travel. As a travel professional with years of experience in evaluating tourism destinations, I think Airbnb offers the perfect experience for folks who like to meet others when they travel. It is especially wonderful for women, because women need a bit more of a personal environment where they can stay and dine to really relax and Airbnb fits that bill! I enjoy hosting one and all, but I especially have enjoyed hosting women who are traveling either with their spouses or partners, or alone where I can give them that relaxed environment and comfort of a home.
