Cozy Cottage is a small house close to Burlington's vibrant downtown & Lake Champlain. The light filled, roomy twin bedroom is on the second floor with east and west windows, comfy, firm mattresses and an armchair. A shared bath is very close by.
Comfortable second floor bedroom with two twin beds in a cozy home. The small shared bathroom is down the hall only a few steps away. Note the sloped ceiling over the shower which may be an issue if you are tall but I have not had too many complaints. The shower head can be removed and hand held.
Maple St is between two colleges and the downtown and busy with student activity and very safe day or night. Parking is sometimes tight. You may need to drive around the block to find a space.
My home is 7 minutes walk to the heart of downtown, 15 minutes to the University of Vermont and 25 minutes to Fletcher Allen Hospital. It's only a two minutes walk to Champlain College. Lake Champlain, the Waterfront Park, acclaimed lake front bike path and the Echo Lake Museum are at the bottom of the hill; all within walking distance . Burlington is known for its vibrant downtown full of many shops, restaurants for all budgets an active arts and music scene.
If you desire I can provide coffee, tea and/or juice, fruit and scones for breakfast or I can recommend many find restaurants (website hidden) The ENTIRE HOUSE is also available for limited periods. Check my other listing COSY COTTAGE IN PERFECT LOCATION

Check in time is 3PM but I can usually be flexible if you let me know ahead of time. I will be here to greet you when you arrive. If I cannot be here I will leave clear directions on how to pick up the key. Please let me know if you need directions. I have several personalized (website hidden) maps I can email to you. If you are driving, I recommend that you find on-street parking nearby but there is one space available overnight if on-street spaces are tight.
Interaction with Guests
I will almost always be here when you arrive to greet you and get you oriented to the house and your room. I have maps and a restaurant guide to some of my favorites. If you are interested we can take time to chat over coffee in the morning.
The neighborhood is an historic district with many fine old homes some still single family, others are now multifamily homes and offices.
Because of the proximity to downtown and the colleges the neighborhood can be lively and a bit noisy at night. This is an intermittent problem in the summer when the windows are open. On positive side the neighborhood is entirely safe both night and day. You can always feel secure walking home late from downtown.
There is public transportation one block away that will take you to and from the airport or the Amtrak station and to nearby malls, the Shelburne Museum, and many other destinations. In the summer the Lake Champlain Ferry, located within walking distance, takes you on a 1 hour trip across the lake to Port Kent where the Amtrak to NY stops once (?) a day.
The Greyhound bus and Mega Bus both stop at the University of Vermont about 15min walk away.

Kathleen was so wonderfully welcoming and kind. My friend and I went to Burlington to experience First Night. We had an incredible experience and bumped into Kathleen at a church supper. Our room was quite private with two twin beds which was exactly what we wanted and difficult to find on Airbnb. The house is lovely and very clean. We easily walk to downtown Burlington. We couldn't have found a more perfect room in a perfect location. We had yummy homemade banana bread and coffee and tea with Kathleen in the morning.
We contacted Kathleen in the last minute when our other accommodation was cancelled and she was nice to let us stay at her place. Kathleen was really nice and helpful with suggestions regarding restaurants and other things. Her place is conveniently located in Burlington and it was a really lovely and inviting cottage. Room was large with lots of space and bed was comfortable.
Un acceuil chaleureux , une maison coquette sur une tres belle rue a deux pas du Flynn Center, difficile de faire mieux!
Kathleen is a great host. She made me feel welcome and was very helpful. She had no problem with my late arrival, and she waited up so that she could show me around when I arrived. She even left out coffee and banana bread for me in the morning!
The location is fantastic. The house is very clean and cozy. I highly recommend staying here!
Thank you Kathleen. Your cosy cottage's close location to both campus and town proved perfect for my quick night in Burlington. The apple cake was yummy! Thanks for having the coffee maker set to go, and for everything.
Kathleen's house is beautiful- it's cozy and charming. Our room was perfect with two twin beds for my friend and me.
This place is phenomenal! The rooms and house are perfect and exactly as described. It was very easy to get around Burlington from the cozy cottage and the price is excellent. However, what really makes this the only place worth staying in Burlington is the host, Kathy. Her level of accommodation of our needs was above and beyond the call of duty. She was also possessed and shared an excellent knowledge of the city and the area. Our stay was amazing and I can honestly say it is pointless to stay anywhere else in Burlington.

I am a retired landscape architect from the northern state of Vermont, USA. In recent years I have been escaping the winter cold and heading to Mexico. But I am interested in escapes to other southern climes also. I live in a 140 year old house that was once the caretakers house for a larger home nearby.
I have raised 3 children in this house who are now living in the various corners of the USA. When visiting them I sometime use AirB&B to find a comfy place to stay nearby. I have been traveling abroad more since my children left home in the '80s and happy to have Air B&B as an economical alternative.
