The Space

*** Between May 1 and October 31, we have a $850 weekly rate. The price for the weeks of Christmas, New Year, Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day is $1000. Happy to negotiate midweek deals.

During off-season, November - April 30, our rates are $150 a night during the week with a two night minimum and weekly rates are $800. Fridays and Saturdays are $200 nightly year round.

We welcome long-term monthly stays for $1200/ month off season, between November and May. Four people can stay at the house very comfortably. We charge an extra $50/nightly per person, for fifth and sixth guests. We also include a $75 cleaning fee. ***

Cool, artsy and aesthetically funky four-season lakehouse built using reclaimed flooring, concrete counters, zero VOC paint, passive solar and superior insulation. Designed by award-winning Vermont architects with a cool, artsy Dwell Magazine aesthetic.

2 BR, each with a comfy (firm) queen bed. Linens are included. House comes with internet, cable TV, kayak, canoe and board games as well as a dock and screened porch. Birdwatching / bass fishing paradise. Outstanding hiking, biking, kayaking, also golfing at Prospect Point, about a mile away, and swimming at nearby Crystal Beach.

Incredible location. Turtles nest in the front; blue herons in the back. Close to Green Mountain Collage, Castleton State and Middlebury College.

Available for two night minimum. Happy to negotiate deals for longer stays, especially for monthly rentals off season.

We welcome families, but a steep ladder leading to an unfinished loft makes this house inappropriate for children between the ages of 4-10. It's better for two adult couples, or fewer. Dogs are welcome.

We just finished building this home a few years ago and are careful about renting it out to people who will treat it well. Please respond with detailed information about yourself and your plans for your visit to Vermont.

  • Beulah's lakehouse is absolutely amazing! The house itself is beautiful and comfy and the view of the lake is beyond gorgeous. Beulah is an amazing host who makes sure that her guests are comfortable. We had some problems with the water when we arrived and this was immediately fixed, even though it was the weekend! We were very impressed by her commitment to her guests.
    I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for total relaxation and beautiful scenery. We had such a wonderful time, and would love to come back!

  • We've been lucky enough to stay at the Lakehouse a couple of times now, and all the other reviews are right: it's a wonderful, amazing place. The house itself is a perfect combination of comfortable, modern, elegant, simple and gorgeous. The views of the lake and surrounding hills are stunning. It is impossible to feel stressed here.

    Also, you will not find a better host than Beulah. Really. She's very attentive and easy to communicate with. Beyond that, it's evident that she wants you to enjoy her special house as much as she does.

  • I think it's safe to say that this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Not only is the view exquisite but the house itself is comfortable, stylish and the views are incredible.

    Beulah was a very attentive host, not only was the communication crystal clear but she went above and beyond with some really great information about stuff to do in the area.

    My only regret is that I can't spend every weekend here!

  • We had a wonderful time at Beulah's house on Lake Bomoseen. It was a truly peaceful and beautiful place and her house had everything we needed for a relaxing long weekend. The kitchen is well equipped for cooks, the house is spotless and the view of the lake from the comfort of the couch and bedroom is spectacular. Beulah was very helpful and communicative and helped make our experience so positive. We enjoyed walks on the frozen lake, a hike at a nearby park, days in Rutland and Middlebury and the drives in between those places. I highly recommend this house.

  • The Lakehouse is really beautiful!
    The view on the lake is unbelievable. The house is well decorated, beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need.

    Beulah was an extremely friendly host. She gave us all the information concerning the surroundings (things to do, shops, organic markets, ...) and also checked in on us to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. We enjoyed the frozen lake for walks with the dogs.

    We would definitely go back!

  • There is a certain majesty to be found in this home. The window on the lake provided us with an ever changing and awe inspiring vista. This view fast-tracked the process of slowing down - as to unwind and relax and appreciate the quiet and serene beauty of nature - right from the comfort of the living room! :) There is a careful attention to detail paid to the house that becomes apparent during ones stay. The beds are comfortable, the acoustics amazing for listening to music, the house warms up quickly and the kitchen has almost everything you need. Short trips in the car reveal small towns with great character and friendly locals who smile back - if you need some inspiration there are maps and guidebooks aplenty. Although the house right on the road - we never found it noisy or uncomfortable. Beulah was an extremely thoughtful and friendly host. She helped us find an organic farm for our Thanksgiving Turkey (amazing) and checked in on us (by email) once or twice casually to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. There are board games and books available, but honestly the view is entertainment enough to the extent that even turning on the television may have been sacrilegious. I can only imagine what fun one might have on the lake with the BBQ and a canoe. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for your friendliness, your hospitality, and for opening your home to us and we wish everyone else who decides to get away at the lake house an equally pleasant stay!

  • Five stars for Beulah Day's stunning eco modernist lakehouse! It's everything the descriptions says it is and more. The first time I walked in the door to the house I gasped. It's THAT beautiful. One entire side of the house is made up of windows that overlook the marsh and lake. The light streaming into the house is gorgeous, and the view is out of this world. The house was immaculately clean and thoughtfully and tastefully furnished. I was in heaven staying there and can't wait to return. It was the most beautiful rental house I've ever had the pleasure of renting. Perfection!

  • The Lakehouse was the perfect retreat from busy city life (which in our case was the first part of our holiday - NYC). It's very well equipped, and we really appreciated the decent kitchen and washing machine/dryer. Bed very comfy and linens good.

    The real selling point of the property is the stunning view, and the place has been designed around it, which works really well. Beautiful decor and interior design.

    A few other guests mentioned road noise in their reviews, and while you could hear the occasional passing truck, this didn't really bother us. Also the lack of curtains did seem to bother some other reviewers, but we enjoyed waking up naturally with the light. You can see the light change over the lake from your bed!

    Well worth taking the canoe out on the lake and having a bit of an explore. Overall a truly amazing place to stay, felt very much like home, and we would return in a heartbeat if in the area again.

About
We rent two properties-- a guest room and bath in our private home in the middle of Washington DC, and a award-winning lakehouse we built on the shore of Lake Bomoseen in central Vermont. My girlfriend and I are busy professionals who work in politics and journalism. We have family in Vermont who manage the property there for us. What follows is applicable exclusively to our DC property, but I am happy to supply tons more info about Vermont. In DC, we're looking for sweet-natured, self sufficent guests for our spare room, which comes with its own living room and private bath . Most of our renters are here for internships, fellowships, rotations and so on. Our house is perfect for a short-term situation for people whose lives are elsewhere. But we are happy to accept renters who are here just for a day or so. Our own bedroom/ bath is at the front of the second floor; in the back are two bedrooms, a private bath, and a washer dryer. We sometimes rent out the two rooms in the back. That includes all utilities except phone. Your space has a small refrigerator, coffeemaker and a microwave, which our renters use instead of the kitchen. Rent also includes fast wifi, premium cable/ satellite television including HBO, a DVD/VCR, and a cleaning lady who comes every two weeks. The back of the second floor is basically your space and you can use the larger of the two bedrooms more or less as a living room. The room comes with bed, all linens including towels, iron and ironing board, hangers, dresser and a bookshelf. The living room has a futon, TV and coffee table. The setup is designed so that you need only show up with your suitcase. We also have a bike, lock and helmet --it's incredibly easy to zip downtown, U St, H St, Dupont Capitol Hill, wherevever, on the bike, and most of our renters have enjoyed having it. You're of course also welcome to bring your own bike, or a car -- let us know if we'll need to get you a temp parking permit. There's also a Capital Bikeshare docking station just two blocks from our house. Robin and I are quiet, private, hardworking professionals in our early 40s. I am a journalist, she works in politics.We prefer to rent to similarly quiet, private people who are respectful of our space. We have a very well-behaved dog who never enters the back of the second floor. Street parking is ample and safe. The neighborhood is in transition, as they say, but it’s very central and friendly and we don’t know anyone who has ever had a problem. I walk/bike to work downtown every day and although there are not a lot of amenities, our house is very close to the superlative Big Bear coffeehouse, a terrific, inexpensive yoga studio (the Bloomingdale Yoga District) and a great, delicious neighborhood pizza joint called Rustik. Additionally, there is a Harris Teeter supermarket and resteraunts right by the NY Ave metro, a Subway franchise and a so-so pizza place around the corner from our house, and an excellent Thai resteraunt on the corner of 3rd and New Jersey. Plenty of places deliver and there are menus for them in your room. On the whole our renters have been on hectic schedules and just need someplace clean, quiet and civilized to come home and crash. We look for renters who have lives elsewhere and won't be bringing people over. You must be comfortable with our no-guests rule. (I know it sounds strange, but in Washington, there are plenty of people here just for the short term for whom it's not a problem.) We're friendly and want to ensure your comfort but expect you'll be capable of manueuvering around the city and letting yourself in and out on your own. Gay friendly a must.
