The space

In addition, all of the attractions of Burlington and Lake Champlain are only a half hour away. Depending on the season, you can be skiing, hiking, biking, camping, swimming at beautiful lakeside beaches, driving through thrilling mountain passes, viewing world famous fall foliage and visiting many northern Vermont travel destinations in just a short drive.

Our guests rave about the self-guided tour itinerary we provide that includes a detailed description of the best things to see and do on a sensational "Loop" drive through the spectacular countryside.

We do not charge for an additional person if you would like to set up a "pack and play" or similar sleeping arrangement for your young child in the second room. If a bed is used in the second room, the extra fee is charged.

The full hall bath is only shared by members of your party (we have our own bathroom). There is another half bath on the ground floor. The smaller guest room (9 ft x 13 ft) has a queen bed suitable for a single or couple. The other larger room (10 ft x 13 ft) has a trundle bed and can accommodate a single, two singles, or a couple as the beds can be separated or moved together to make a king size bed.

Please let us know your room preference and configuration of beds if you are interested in the larger room. If you are interested in both rooms, please note there is a $45 charge for each guest in the second room.

Daily breakfast includes beverage (coffee, tea), bread, butter and jams, hard boiled eggs, cheese, fruit, and yogurt. You may notice reviews that mention an elaborate breakfast. We have scaled down some, but rest assured you will not walk away hungry.

Although we are only a mile or so from a large supermarket, retail shopping area, restaurants, library, and elementary school playground, having a car is necessary to get to nearby Burlington and other local attractions.

Mark and Iris are the BEST hosts I've ever seen. I will definitely recommend their house to other Airbnb users. They are so nice and friendly. They gave us a big hug when we just arrived at their house. So happy! They have two bedrooms. My parent lived in one bedroom with a Queen size beds. My friend and I lived in another bedroom with 2 full beds. So all of us felt comfortable and slept well at that night. Iris baked cookies and cooked a delicious breakfast for us. All food were organic (from their garden). Also, the view of their house was fascinating. You can see mountains, animals and villages in front of the house. Everything was so perfect. We were so luck to choose their house. Thanks again! I hope I can come back their house next time.

Mark and Iris were absolutely wonderful to stay with! We arrived in Vermont after a long day of driving, and even though we arrived late in the night, they welcomed us very warmly and showed us to our room. They even gave us detailed suggestions of what we could see in and around Vermont (they even gave us a printout with these details!). Best part of the stay was easily the breakfast next morning - they made vegetarian breakfast because we indicated we were vegetarian, which we ate while absorbing the absolutely gorgeous view from their dining room. I'd recommend anybody to stay here if they are in Vermont!

Mark and Iris were great hosts. From the warm greetings to the stimulating conversations, they made our stay very enjoyable. Iris's breakfast was wonderful, complete with home made bread. Our bed was comfortable and our room quiet. We enjoyed the private setting of their home and had a relaxing stay. Thanks so much Mark and Iris and we hope to see you again.

We had a wonderful stay with Mark and Iris. We went to visit our son in college to hike and celebrate his upcoming birthday. Iris was most apologetic when she would not be there to greet us but was ever so flexible and accommodating. We left Ben's car at their house early in the day as it was on the way to our hike from school. As luck would have it, we briefly met Mark and Iris as we were leaving. Being in college, Ben wanted a homecooked meal. It was all prepared except for the pasta. When we returned from our hike, Iris had left a note in an envelope with candles AND the table was fully set. We had a wonderful family dinner AND cake with candles!! Ben was invited back for breakfast in the morning. What a spread put before us! We had wonderful conversations, on a wide range of topics. It felt as if we were long lost friends. Need I say anymore...we WILL be back!!

Iris and Mark were *fantastic* hosts! We arrived late at night, so didn't get to meet them until AM, when they provided us with a *delicious* breakfast and great conversation, on the sunny porch, overlooking the mountains in the distance. It was such a treat! We couldn't have asked for a better stay or more welcoming hosts!

Our hosts made us feel extremely welcomed from the moment we met them. They were able to take us in on short notice and provided a wonderful experience for our trip to Vermont! Mark and Iris are the perfect tour guides, plus they made us a killer breakfast. The bed was comfy, the room was super clean, the view was spectacular. Bird watchers would be delighted to spend an afternoon in their backyard!

My friend and I stayed with Mark and Iris as part of a short weekend trip to the Burlington area and were very glad that we chose to stay with them. They were incredible hosts, welcoming us warmly and helping us figure out what things were must-sees. They gave us pamphlets of different cities/attractions as well as their own "best of Vermont" loop, which was We arrived later than we had hoped, bit they were very gracious and left the lights on for us. The home itself was beautiful and very tidy, and we awoke to the delicious smell of Iris cooking breakfast! The highlight of our stay was chatting with them and hearing about their background/life story. They were a delight to talk to! Additionally, they were very accommodating to food allergies. We both had a great time and would definitely recommend Mark and Iris to anyone looking for a welcoming stay in the Burlington area (I would love to stay again too!)
