Burlington Carriage House Retreat

House - Private room · Tower Terrace, Burlington, VT 05401, United States

The Space

We are uniquely located on a very, quiet, garden-lined, dead end street in the historic hill section of Burlington, yet only a 10 min. walk to our vibrant downtown and UVM. We're located in the heart of Champlain college. You'll find green and absolute quiet outside your bedroom window. There's a free shuttle to the waterfront a few blocks away that runs during the week. Our 1890 carriage house was converted to living quarters a number of years ago. The guest quarters are essentially a private apartment. A bedroom and private bathroom are located on the ground floor just off a private front room that has sitting area and kitchenette that provides a microwave, sink, electric kettle & fridge for your use as well as a washer/dryer. This door separates the space from the rest of the house (see photos). While we don't use the guest quarters, for guests during longer stays we sometimes need occasional access to this extra fridge & laundry. You'll find breakfast items (teas, coffee, juice, milk, granola, oatmeal) stocked in your fridge/cabinet. Help yourself. Cable TV, WIFI, radio/cd player. Fresh linens & towels are provided. Off street parking. Our sweet, quiet and friendly dog, Woody, is a cairn terrier, which is a non-shedding hypoallergenic breed. He stays in our living quarters. Our shy cat, Sparky, may make an appearance. While we are animal lovers, we regret that we cannot accommodate your pet. Price includes 11% rooms & meals tax and all other fees. While we don't have a two-night minimum, we do have an extra charge of $20 for one-night stays during our busy season (mid-April- Nov). A one-time fee of $35 will be charged for use of the spare bed for in the sitting room regardless of how many nights for any pairs not wishing to share the bedroom (i.e.- mother/daughter, siblings, good friends but not THAT close, etc) . We'd like to accommodate pairs of folks that may not wish to share the big bed. Both of these fees are handled separately. We're looking forward to meeting you!

  • We had a wonderful experience a the carriage house retreat!

    The house is perfectly situated, extremely quiet and super clean. We travelled with our one year old baby, and Linda made sure we had everything we needed for him, let us use her high chair and even play with her great dog!

    Our family really recommends this place if you wish to spend a great time in Burlington!

  • The Burlington Carriage House Retreat is absolutely superb! There's little Nancy and I can add to prior reviews except to emphasize that it is truly a home-away-from-home. Linda and Mark couldn't have been more gracious, warm and accommodating. The suite is beautiful, eclectic, comfortable and features Linda's very compelling and wonderful paintings - much like the rest of the house. My son and daughter-in-law live in Burlington and had just had their first baby so we didn't want to impose on them. But we are thrilled to have discovered this fantastic place. We will definitely be visiting again - and often. Kevin and Nancy.

  • Had a wonderful experience staying at the Carriage House Retreat!! I would absolutely recommend it and can't wait to return. This space was exactly that: a lovely retreat of its own, more than just a place to stay. My boyfriend and I found ourselves lingering here because it was so cozy and a great place to relax between outings. The amenities- living room to lounge in, sweet little kitchenette stocked with mineral water, tea, honey, great local coffee, granola, oatmeal, yogurt and more- were a huge plus. There was also a set of dishes, coffee cups, silverware, and little cutting board which came in handy for the local Vermont cheese plate we put together for ourselves. Linda was such a welcoming hostess and greeted us warmly as soon as we arrived, was great about communication from the initial reservation all the way through our stay, and was available and helpful with everything we needed, including restaurant recommendations, etc. Her beautiful paintings decorate the space and she went out of her way with welcoming touches like fresh flowers in every room. The location was very close to town and would be convenient for walking although it was a bit too chilly so we drove to most things (less than a 5 minute drive to downtown Burlington). Love this great foodie town and this is the perfect place to stay! Thank you Linda!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Burlington for 1 night. Linda was so nice and received us well. The rooms were clean with lots of room. It felt like staying with family! The granola was amazingly delicious and it was a really easy walk down to the city center (or to UVM). Firm bed with soft pillows, parking, fridge, livingroom, etc, etc, etc. Would definitely stay here again if we venture back out to Burlington!

  • We were welcomed into this beautiful carriage house with open arms. Linda was very flexible, allowing my daughter to join me last minute, and we used the house as our home while we visited UVM (college tour). It really is within walking distance of both UVM and Church Street. The facilities are ample and comfortable, and we could both stay with privacy. She even offered use of the washer and drier! The house is fabulous, as is her art which decorates the walls. The breakfast was yummy (fruit, yogurt, granola) as was the excellent coffee. I recommend this BnB without reservation. Oh and she let us play with her cute little dog--a plus for us.

  • We had a wonderful time staying with Linda! This suite was so comfortable to come back to after a cold day exploring Burlington. It is a lovely home within walking distance of downtown. You definitely can't beat the amenities either; we enjoyed having a washer/dryer and refigerator within the suite. We would definitely stay here again!

  • We had a wonderful stay at the Carriage House! It is a beautiful home with interesting architecture and history. Linda made us feel immediately welcome. The room was comfortable, bright and spacious. The easy walking to the heart of the city was convenient to enjoy the town during the day and return to the Carriage House to get dressed up for dinner and a show at the Flynn Center. We hope to stay again on our next trip to Burlington.

  • We had a fantastic stay @ Linda's carriage house. Plenty of room for our group (3 the 1st night, 4 the 2nd). Although we were very familiar w/ Burlington (we all did our undergrad years @ UVM), Linda's hospitality was very welcome. She offered us coffee, oatmeal, towels, bedding... now that I think of it, she even made our 3rd bed when we went out our 1st night. Woody, her dog, hung with us but wasn't bothersome at all. The only con of our stay was that the temps were -10' F or below. Highly, highly recommend staying at this property. Feel free to PM/DM me if airbnb has such a thing. Otherwise, you can reach me at dennis [dot] uyenoyama [at] [that sergey brin company] [(website hidden) ;-)

  • Perfect stay. Beautiful home, beautiful room, in a perfect location. Linda was incredibly hospitable. The quarters were spacious and full of amenities (such as local coffee and granola, wireless internet, etc) making our stay very very comfortable. The location was ideal; a short walk from both downtown Burlington and Lake Champlain. Fully recommended.

  • We arrived at the Carriage House and were greeted by Linda and her husband immediately upon arrival. The living space was charming and the refrigerator contained some basic coffee, fruits and juices for our consumption, which was a pleasant surprise. The house is located within a small college campus, so the area was still nice and quiet, yet convenient walking distance from downtown Burlington (about a 15 minute walk from Church and Main). Though we already had most our plans arranged beforehand, Linda was very helpful in providing us options on things to do in Burlington. A very pleasant experience overall and I will definitely contact Linda should I travel to Burlington again!
