A colorful tiny cabin in the nice, large, tree-lined backyard behind the main house. It is quite small (only about 64 sq ft) but is warm and very well finished with a quality "full" size futon bed. Nice windows, wood floors and walls, clean and dry, and well-insulated. Has electricity and electric space heat but no other amenities. Main House always open for bathroom. towels provided. wifi in main house, does not reliably reach cabin.
Kitchen, dining space, additional storage in main house. We do keep "regular" hours and generally prefer things quiet after 10/11 pm. Not early risers, most of us don't leave the house til 8 or 9. Parking is easy on street with no restrictions. In the event of a snow storm we will of course make room in the driveway!
Start your day at the excellent cafe/bakery (Barrio Bakery) just around the corner from house (pastries, sandwiches, and perfect espresso...) 10 Minute walk to the top of Church St where you'll find most downtown restaurants, bars, music and other attractions.
I had a great stay at Chris' cabin. The space was cute, clean, and incredibly cozy with beautiful colored christmas lights strung artfully on the walls and from the ceiling. Chris himself was friendly and gracious and took the time to tell me about his experience living in Burlington. Would definitely recommend!
A sweet LITTLE cabin in a big back yard under big trees. Very quiet and private. If you're ok with very little floor space except a double bed mattress, and a run across the back yard to the house for the bathroom (shared with house residents), then you'll love it. Very close to downtown, the lakefront, the university, trails. Friendly housemates, safe neighborhood.
The tiny house was exactly that- but what it lacked in square footage, it made up for in coziness and warmth! Chris and his roommates (and their cats) were friendly and accommodating. This listing is ideally located less than 1 mile from downtown and the Church Street marketplace. I'll be happy to book the tiny house again the next time I visit Burlington. Don't miss out!
The tiny house was perfect for my visit! I was working into the wee hours, and did not want to be disturbing anyone with my late arrivals. And, the bed in this room is exquisite - I was so happy! The twinkling lights were very welcoming for my arrival, too.
The Tiny House is exactly as billed but don't let that scare you off. It was a fun place that was incredibly quiet inside. Peaceful. I loved the design of the place. Chris did an excellent job using a blend of painted walls and finished wood walls to give the place character. The "high" ceiling gave the place a bit of open-ness to it. The place is well insulated and the tiny space heater was more than adequate on the two nights that I stayed there in the low to mid 30s.
On-street parking at first glimpse looked crowded but I always found a spot in front of the house or the next door neighbor's house. Not a problem.
I booked fairly late and Chris was very good at communicating promptly and clearly. My arrival was fairly late in the evening, 11pm, and Chris accommodated my needs and put me at ease. I was only in Burlington for two nights but managed to have several enjoyable conversations with Chris. Very nice guy.
I recommend the Tiny House if you want a bit of privacy and a bit of adventure when compared to other AirBnB experiences.

Cozy, warm and close to all Burlington has to offer. If you're looking for a quiet place to sleep, travel light and spend most of your travel time exploring rather then staying in, then this would be an ideal locale. The bathroom and kitchen is shared with the main house residents and the separate sleeping cottage-y shed is small - I wouldn't try fitting more than 2 or 3 pieces of luggage in there along with 2 bodies - but it is super warm and located in a safe area. Street parking is typically very easy to find in the area. Burlington is one of my favourite places to visit ever, and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
I enjoyed my one night stay in the cabin immensely. It was comfortable, warm and most importantly affordable. The bathroom and kitchen are located in the house and both are very clean. If I had another short stay in Burlington, VT this would be my first choice. The cabin is small so any party larger than two or with lots of luggage may have difficulty.
We had an amazing time, our trip was a sorta last minute decision made at 6am the Friday before we left and everything could not have been better. We brought our bikes up from Boston and we were able to get anywhere in 5 minutes as everything was less than a mile away. There was a plentiful amount of parking on the street outside the house. It is a really adorable set-up. It is cute, small and cozy. It was pretty cold that weekend but we actually kept the window open (we both run warm) and we were not at all cold the entire time. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Burlington.
If you are not sure where to grab breakfast in Burlington, definitely stop in at Penny Cluse cafe, we got the mexican scrambled tacos for breakfast and each ordered a can of Heady Topper (best. ipa. ever, seriously.) Also-- there's Magnolia Cafe, excellent Tequila Sunrises to accompany breakfast. For dinner, I recommend grabbing a bistro dinner at Leunigs if you're balling on a budget ($15 for salad or soup with an entree- personally I love the beef bourguignon entree but the steak and frites is delicious as well), try the burlington dark and stormy! There's also the Farmhouse Tap & Grill- their Autumnal salad is to die for as well as their cheese plates (Tarentaise, do it!) and their burgers, everything is incredible! Again, grab a Heady Topper if they have any left.
The Tiny House is as-billed. Kitchy. Hilariously tiny. Adequately heated. Tiny fun was had by all!
This place worked out great! Everything was as advertised. Convenient location with easy parking, nice walk into downtown.
