Our guest quarters (a cozy, private apartment with kitchenette) is within the front of our 1890 carriage house. We're in the historic hill section of Burlington at the bottom of a very quiet, dead end street, yet a short walk to downtown and UVM.
Welcome to our Carriage House Retreat! We look forward to your stay with us. A few things to note before you book:
-There is a two night minimum during our busy season (mid-April through mid-November)
-Two people, need two beds? For parties of two, we're happy to provide extra bed with linens for a one time fee of $35. This is regardless of how long your stay is with us. This is a year round policy. This payment can be made through the resolution page or cash at the time of your visit. Some folks can't always anticipate when a snoring episode may send one to the spare bed in the sitting room!
-Please no smoking on the premises (inside and out).
-In the Vermont tradition, we take off our shoes and leave them in the mudroom (the front hallway).
-While your own guests are always welcome in our home, please do not allow anyone you don't know into the house.
-We do not rent to minors.
-Woody, the dog, is very friendly & stays in our living quarters. Please don't let him outside- no matter how much he may plead! He'll bolt for the squirrels!
-While we are big animal lovers ourselves, we regret that we cannot accommodate your pet unless he/she is an certified service animal. So very sorry! Some of our guests are very allergic to animal hair & dander. Our own Woody is a non-shedding hypoallergenic Cairn terrier that stays in our living quarters.
-We're so looking forward to meeting you!
From Apr 12 - Nov 15, 2017 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
We're a fun, relaxed & casual household and we love to travel. A family of four, we have two grown sons- one graduate living in Boston, the younger still in college & playing lacrosse for Salisbury U in MD. My husband,Mark, (with a partner) owns & manages a local company- Vermont Energy. I'm a working artist/painter with a studio nearby and also teach (painting/drawing). We have a sweet dog (cairn terrier), Woody. I moved to Burlington in 1980 after graduating from Antioch college. Mark moved here from Madison a few years later. We both love everything this great town has to offer. The sense of community as well as the many cultural events offered. We both love the outdoors and take great inspiration from the farms, woods, lake, rivers, mountains and natural wonders that surround us.
