Actually stayed here for several months in 2009 (before the property was listed online).
The apartment is more like an attached cottage or cabin, and you have complete privacy. I enjoyed sitting on the porch in the mornings, enjoying the crisp clean Vermont mountain air with my first cup of coffee. There are trails in the woods adjacent to the property, and it is minutes from Burke Mountain and Lyndonville.
Tom and Hilary are the most gracious hosts one could hope for. Good people in every sense of the word. I wouldn't hesitate to reserve a stay here again when I return to the Northeast Kingdom.
If you go, consider bringing a tennis ball for Kenai. The minutes or hours we spend throwing balls for friendly dogs are not subtracted from our life span.
