Anna's writeup about getting into the place and taking care of her cat were very detailed and helpful.
The location to the main part of Middlebury was very convenient and her place is large and sunny. Anna left a map of Middlebury College and provided us with fresh bagels and coffee, which was nice.
This was our second experience using Airbnb, so I guess we weren't clear that we were staying in Anna's primary home. We felt like we were "crashing" at someone's house. We're used to having our own space (hotel room, studio, condo, etc.), so it was a bit of a shock to walk in and see Anna's personal items all over (photos, pictures, books, bathrobe, food, jewelry, etc.), plus lots of clutter (stacks of boxes, papers, suitcases, etc.).
Luckily we like cats, so taking care of Joy was no problem, but I could see that this might not be okay with everyone.
We just didn't feel comfortable hanging out in somebody's space, so limited our time there to mainly sleeping and breakfast.
Anna's place is beautiful and sunny and close to a great restaurant where we had breakfast (storm cafe). There were a bunch of cute shops and places to eat and we wished we could stay longer to enjoy the place and town. Cat is super friendly and wanted to hang, so if you're not into cats, that might be an issue. Didn't actually have a chance to meet Anna but she was able to give us really great instructions and was helpful considering our super last minute booking. Would stay again!
We had a very nice time at Anna Sun's apartment. It is large and airy, comfortably furnished, and comes with a companionable cat. So it was exactly as described. The neighborhood is private, but walkable to town, although we were lazy and drove in. All in all, a lovely place to spend the night and very convenient for the Middlebury College drop off day.
Thanks, Donna, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Come stay another time! Best wishes, Anna
Anna's apartment is very open and sunny and close to downtown. We felt very relaxed. My only complaint is that it was not as clean as we would have liked. Anna warned us that she would not have time to do a thorough cleaning because we had booked with only a day's notice. Other than that, it was pleasant. Anna is very prompt and communicative.
This was an excellent base for our cycling vacation in Vermont. The apartment is bright, spacious and very comfortable and Anna was an attentive and friendly host. Joy, the cat, was also very friendly. We travelled by public transit from Burlington and were within easy walking distance of the town centre. We rented our bikes and helmets from The Bike Center which gave great equipment at good prices and we got excellent advice on where to ride. The cycling was most enjoyable - very quiet roads through beautiful rolling farmland in fall colours.
Anna's apartment is delightfully open and sunny, and Anna was very welcoming. The place worked perfectly for the four of us on a bike tour, and I recommend the place highly. I would note, though, that it felt very much as though we were staying in someone's place who had just left unexpectedly. The dish drainers were chock full of dishes, the apartment wasn't moderately clean but not overly so. We awoke Anna from a nap when we arrived, she came back to get something out of the fridge, and a friend stopped by to pick something up. Again, fine given the nature of our trip, but it might not be such a good fit for people wanting privacy.
A really beautiful spot in a quiet, friendly town. We could not have asked for a better introduction to Middlebury! Thank you, Anna.
Thanks, Lesli, you're welcome to come visit again any time! Anna
It was great to stay at Anna's place. It had everything we needed for a long weekend in Middebury; it was much better than staying at a hotel. Anna made an effort to come meet us, which was really nice. The apartment was close to town center and we could walk to the grocery store. The apartment was clean, and the layout was open which was great for four friends and a baby. Two of us slept in the loft, and the other three slept in the main room. We would all definitely come back to Anna's apartment.
Thanks, Sarah, it was great to meet you. Anna
Lovely View and a beautiful place! Anna was prompt, polite and efficient, answering the many questions I had before booking. Excellent stay overall!
Our schedule never meshed with Anna's, so we never actually met, but she was helpful, friendly and very accommodating. The cats are ultra-friendly, and we enjoyed them.
I enjoyed seeing Anna again. She had stayed with me last year as well. It was nice to catch up with her and see how her life has evolved. She was an easy and respectful guest. I wish her well with her present opportunities.
I enjoyed meeting Anna and I am so glad that she was able to stay with me. She has such an interesting life in Middlebury, Vermont. I was happy to have her share it with me. I am glad there are people like Anna who contribute to the good in the world. Easy, and interesting guest. Please come back and visit anytime.
Thanks, Becky. You're welcome to visit Middlebury any time!
Come back soon!
I sure will!
Anna stayed over for 2 nights and really got into the local scene. She is a good guest, clean and tidy and interesting to converse with. I recommend her if you are thinking of hosting her. She is welcome to come back anytime.
Anna was a polite delight. She was only with us a short while. But she was gracious and nice. We'd have her back anytime.
Anna and her friend were great guests. Friendly and tidy. I highly recommend Anna as a guest.
I have known Anna for almost 20 years. Her place is very open and sunny, with a nice deck where you can sit and watch the sun set. The bedrooms are comfortable and quiet. The atmosphere at her place is relaxed. Anna has travelled all over the world, she is an engaging and thoughtful host. I highly recommend her place.
I have know Anna for 10 years now. When I visit Midd, I always stay at Anna's. It makes me feel like I have a second home in town. Anna's place is gorgeous, can easily accommodate just me or my entire family of 4-5. The view from her apartment is unbelievable! Anna is warm, kind and flexible, a very generous host. I highly recommend Anna and her wonderful place.
I can say from personal experience that you'll love the location, cozy atmosphere, and convenience of Anna's apartment. Of course I'm biased--she's my mom--but I always look forward to coming home and walking into to town, over Chipman Hill, or to the bagel bakery. If you have a chance to meet Anna you'll find her energetic and hospitable. Enjoy it!
I have known Anna for many years. She is a delightful person, well read and cultured. She is multilingual as well. Anna has traveled the world and understands what hospitality means. Her place has tremendous views of the Adirondack mountains. The home is near the college,restaurants and some great shops.
