MIDDLEBURY AREA - Totally renovated, separate new apartment, very quiet and private - unobstructed views of Adirondack and Green Mountains
A private entrance leads to this 650 sqft (60 sq.m) loft apartment which extends over the entire side wing of our new farm house that was built in 2004 and is located on a 5 acre organic apple orchard. Our house and property have been featured in the 2011 September/October issue of Yankee magazine.
For your privacy, the apartment and your personal bathroom with shower and tub are both physically separated from the rest of our house. Large and fully operational kitchen, sleeping, lounging and working areas make this living space a relaxing and energizing experience. The beautiful, unobstructed 180° panoramic views over Champlain valley, the Adirondack and Green Mountains will undoubtedly complete your Vermont countryside adventure. And star gazing during clear nights makes you want to touch stars and the Milky Way in particular, a spectacular display of the universe enhanced by the lack of intrusive city light.
The apartment is completely furnished, a double and a single bed are available and so are linens, towels and supplies for your convenience. Amenities include air conditioning, free and wireless Internet as well as 250+ TV channels on DishNetwork and parking is plentiful and free. Both apartment and bathroom have individual thermostats with heat and electricity included in the rental. Sorry, no pets or smoking.

Interaction with Guests
We are always available to assist our guests in their preparation of their trip to Vermont and gladly provide tips for restaurants, sightseeing, outdoor activities, shopping, etc.
Our 5 acre property is located in a rural, very quiet Vermont setting 10 miles south of Middlebury, VT. Our property is located on a ridge with a wonderful 360° view over the Champlain Valley, the Adirondack and Green Mountains.
Because of the rural setting of our property, there is no public transportation available.
Our general philosophy is "Treat our property as you treat yours".
Because we are prone to rapid weather conditions in summer where thunderstorms can pop up unexpectedly, we ask that windows will be closed when leaving the apartment.
When leaving the apartment, please lock the apartment door.
Our sensitive smoke alarm in the apartment has a tendency to go off when one toasts bread or bagels. Keep this in mind and don't get upset when the alarm should go off.
This was our second stay in Peter & Graziella's lovely apartment. We returned for a second two-night get-away because the first visit was so perfect. We're so appreciative for their warm welcome, the extra amenities they provide and their graciousness. The apartment is clean, spacious, private and well-stocked. We love the fun and funky artwork that makes it especially original. The home is just 10 minutes from Middlebury, but honestly, we didn't have a lot of need to leave! Graziella recommended the Shoreham Inn for dinner and it was great advice. We hope to return yet again.
Graziella and Peter made our Middlebury weekend a special one. The apartment was spacious, enhanced by Graziella's excellent taste--including many of her own paintings and sketches. The view from every window was just as advertised. Graziella's suggestions for restaurants and area activities were both useful and accurate. . . . Most enjoyable all around, and well worth another visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were perfect. Prompt in responding to questions before our visit, and helpful but not intrusive while we were there. We appreciated the beautiful space and the kitchen stocked with eggs, milk, bread, cheese, fruit, juice and yogurt. Nice well-appointed bathroom with great towels and travel-sized lotions, shampoos, etc. It was convenient to Middlebury, but allowed us to explore the area south as well. It is no surprise that they receive such rave reviews. We are happy to add ours to all the others.
We had a fabulous time! The apartment is cozy, warm, welcoming and the view is truly spectacular. Just perfect sights all around for the artist soul. We really enjoyed the simple and quiet all around. Looking forward connecting again in the spring.
We had a wonderful time visiting Vermont, and wish we could've stayed longer! The leaves were starting to turn color, so we spent a lot of time driving around and didn't get to spend that much time just relaxing at Peter and Graziella's beautiful house. Their house has gorgeous views (as advertised!), and we sat on their porch and watched the sunset our first night there. They were nice and left us some eggs, fruit, milk, cheese, butter, maple syrup, and bagels for breakfast. They also have a cat and a dog, both of which were very friendly! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit the Middlebury area in Vermont!
As a first time airbnb'er, this was a great experience and will have me coming back for more. Peter was very prompt in his response to my request and guided me through the process with patience. Graziella was a warm and sweet hostess, available as much or as little as we needed. They provided us with some of the essentials, coffee, eggs, milk and, of course, Vermont cheddar! Their dog, Libra, was just as welcoming and warm as our hosts. We couldn't have asked for a better location or weekend in VT.
We both are dual citizens of the USA and Switzerland and cherish the distinct cultural differences of these two highly industrialized countries. Our early lives blessed us with frequent and extended travels all over the world. We also lived for a couple of years in Montreal, Canada and Bogotà, Colombia and real life experiences in all continents but Africa shaped our believe that human nature is fundamentally as sincere and as precious as we all expect it to be. We love having people visit us and can assure visitors of their total privacy.
