About this listing
Nestled on the side of Butternut Mountain, this cozy home is private and peaceful - offering beautiful views, gardens, birds, a running stream and is within walking distance of the Long Trail. 5 minutes from Johnson State College, 7 minutes to a sweet little yoga studio and a good coffee shop, 30 minutes from Stowe and 20 minutes to Smuggler's Notch.
THE BASIC RENTAL IS ONE GUEST BEDROOM WITH A FULL SIZE BED, PRIVATE BATHROOM BUT SHARED SHOWER, FOR ONE OR TWO PEOPLE, MAX.
If you are more than 2, I am willing to discuss renting out the master bedroom with private half bath and tub (you can find this under the listing "Green Mountain Sanctuary 2"), another room with a blow up mattress, and possibly the whole house.
My home is my sanctuary and I like to share that experience with others. I have WiFi and good reception for Verizon Wireless. Please plan on using WiFi for e-mail and searching, not watching movies of shows, as I have limited data. If this is important we could arrange for an additional feel ). I have a TV but it is only set up for movies and the "fireplace" listed is actually a windowed woodstove (so you still get to see the fire :-))
I love animals and don't currently have any of my own. If yours is well-behaved, let's talk.
As this is my home and MY sanctuary as well, I ask that you treat it with care and respect. Only slippers, socks or bare feet in the house please - I have white rugs and hardwood floors.
You are welcome to use the fridge.
I don't "serve breakfast" but you can usually count on tea, coffee, fruit and toast, again, as long as I am here.
I appreciate quiet between 10-ish and 7 but I am usually up before my guests, anyway.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Lisa is a kind and engaging host. Her sanctuary is spectacular - peaceful, quiet and picturesque. We really enjoyed our stay - the room was comfortable and clean. The sheets and towels were fresh and clean. Lisa was generous by sharing her home grown fruits and vegetables as well as her local area knowledge. There are some beautiful local attractions a short drive from Johnson so we highly recommend Lisa's home when visiting Vermont.
Great experience overall with Lisa at her home outside of Johnson. It was a quiet escape and Lisa was incredibly hospitable and kind. Incredible value, clean home, Lisa provided a lovely little breakfast and great recommendations on our weekend activities. We would stay with her again in a heartbeat!
Lisa is a wonderful host and her house is truly a beautiful sanctuary. My son came to visit me at the Vermont Studio Center where I was doing a month long residency. Lisa's house could not have been better situated, just three miles away from VSC. She made my son feel so welcome and at home and we both really enjoyed talking to her. If you are visiting Johnson or having a guest visit you at the studio center, I would highly recommend having Lisa host you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Thank you Lisa!
Lisa was a wonderful host and her home is beautiful. We were offered a delicious breakfast of fresh blueberries and homemade granola. We were sad to have to leave after only one night there. If we can visit again, it will for sure be a longer stay.
I made this booking for my wife and daughter. They had an amazing time. On arriving they immediately felt they had met a kindred spirit in Lisa. The property was beautiful and the house was cozy and clean. They especially enjoyed reading their books in the screened in porch that doubles as Lisa's art studio. They are already talking about going back. I hope to join them next time!
My first Air BnB experience was most certainly a pleasant one. Lisa is an exceptional host, very friendly and accommodating. Lisa's house was easy to navigate to and was peacefully quiet. It felt like home away from home. When I am ever back in Vermont and need a place I will hope Lisa's house is available again as I would most definitely enjoy to stay here again.
Lisa was a wonderful host! As I was arriving after dark and the roads weren't well marked, she met me a few miles away on the highway and led the way. The next morning she drove me around, which was perfect.
Meeting Lisa was like meeting an old friend: immediate rapport and comfort.
The room and house were spotless, the view was lovely, and the use of the kitchen was exactly what I needed.

About the Host, Lisa
I am a life and business coach, and design workshops using combinations of coaching, movement, painting and nature as reflection to facilitate greater self-awareness and well-being.
I love my little piece of heaven, making things beautiful and creating inviting spaces for people.
Although I have no animals of my own at the moment, all creatures - wild and domesticated - take up the majority of real estate in my heart.
I am warm and friendly, and appreciate silence and solitude. I like celebrating and being peaceful.
I like working, dance, music, asking the big questions, and innovative thinking.
What I am most interested in is how to develop deep, loving relationships with ourselves so we can more easily express our gifts and make our contribution to the evolution of the planet, and Life itself. Sounds lofty but I'm just as happy discussing it over a fabulous meal and great wine!
