What a wonderful couple and a beautiful home.
Mary Jane reached out to me the day before my arrival to ensure that I was comfortable with the directions to their home - very thoughtful. The accommodations were great, very nice room and comfortable bed. Just as described on the airbnb site.
I enjoyed talking with Mary Jane and Paul as we watched the Royals destroy the Giants in game 6 of the World Series. Sorry about game 7 guys!!!!
Highly recommend these hosts and accommodations.
I arrived after 8pm but Mary Jane was very accommodating and asked me to call 15 min before I'll get to the house. She was waiting for me when my GPS took me to the house, which is very remote.
It was quiet at night and I could sleep very good. In the morning fresh coffee was waiting for me and Mary Jane prepared breakfast.
I really enjoyed my stay and plan to come back next year during fall. The location and the nature is amazing here.
Mary Jane and her husband were very friendly and accommodating hosts. Their home was lovely. A traditional style, built in the 1990’s, it was on an open tract of land with trees on either side and a great view of a nearby mountain. Explicit directions made it easy to find, and parking in their spacious driveway was convenient.
Inside, their home was replete with attractive furnishings and two very mellow, people-loving cats. My room was on the second floor, with a comfortable queen bed and a chair, and a little space heater ready if needed for a cold night (I didn’t need it). The very clean bathroom was shared with my hosts (there was another one on the first floor, as well). I slept like a baby.
Mary Jane and her husband were easy with my various comings and goings during the day and evening. I had some opportunities to sit and chat with them, which was delightful. They know the area quite well and are very willing to share. I was also able to make use of their wi-fi network to get some work done on my laptop.
My tasty continental breakfast included homemade granola, fruit, coffee and bakery. I had the option to eat it whenever I was ready.
This was my first experience with airbnb and I was very pleased. Thanks so much, Mary Jane and Paul!
We really enjoyed our stay out in the country. The house was lovely and the garden very impressive. We had a lovely bedroom and another room for hanging out. MaryJane & Paul were wonderful hosts. Mary Jane was very sweet and accommodating. Paul gave this wonderful directions and advice on where to go hiking. We had coffee, tea and muffins awaiting when we awoke. I have to mention the two very friendly, but unobtrusive cats as well. We stopped up the road on the way there, at the Maple Country store/bar where we were able to order some amazing sandwiches and bought a nice bottle of wine. Best small town grocer ever!
Mary Jane was very kind and helpful -- I was traveling with a friend, and she allowed us to each book a room even though she only has one room listed online. She provided us with a great continental breakfast (homemade muffins and granola with yogurt and fruit!) and let me borrow an iron in the morning. Would definitely stay here again!
Mary Jane and Paul were great hosts. Their home was inviting, clean and comfortable. Mary Jane made a home cooked breakfast and even fresh veggies for our ride home! Will definitely be staying there again.
Mary Jane and Paul were wonderful, welcoming hosts! The house is delightful and impeccable, and situated in a beautiful and I believe very special area of Vermont just a few miles north of Montpelier. It's probably helpful to have an all-wheel drive vehicle (I have an Impreza) to get there if you're traveling over snow or ice; we had no problems getting there even though there was some snow on the roads. There was a lovely fire visible in the woodstove when we arrived, and Mary Jane and Paul invited us to sit at the dining table to have some soothing tea to decompress after a long and stressful drive from New Jersey. Mary Jane and Paul are open-hearted, gentle, friendly, and conscious people who know a lot about the area. They were also very mindful that we were tired and knew when tea was done that we needed to rest...There were two very sweet and unobtrusive cats. Beds were very comfortable and everything was good. We didn't have cell reception but since we were leaving early to attend an event and arriving late after it, we didn't need to use our cells or internet at the house. Since the floors are wood, don't be surprised by the little creaks it makes if you get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom! Also, Mary Jane generously offered a healthful breakfast both days but we had to decline since meals/coffee were being provided at the event we were attending. A wonderful experience, we would love to return to this idyllic setting.
I am a retired holistic health nurse. My interest include biking, gardening, meditation and cross country skiing. I am married to Paul. In addition to the above shared interest, he is also a wood worker. we have two children. we enjoy vegetarian food and our two cats.
