If you are seeking the action/adventure options of the kingdom trails or burke mountain or are simply looking for a beautiful redoubt from which to soak in the beauty of the nek, this is the place for you.
Our one bedroom apartment is connected to our home by an enclosed porch. The apartment offers a very comfortable living room/dining room/kitchen main space with built in bookshelves, original art, and a tivioli two sound system. Wi-fi is also available. The kitchen is well equipped for those who prefer to cook in. A charcoal weber grill is also available. The small bedroom has a new queen sized bed. The living room includes a futon that converts to a queen-sized bed. Wide board pine floors and accompanying pine window trim and furniture give this space a clean and cozy atmosphere.
The apartment has its own porch overlooking three plum trees, kiwi vines, and our vegetable garden. Wild turkey and deer are often seen in our fields and the morning birdsong greets your awakening.
Our homestead is situated on 36 acres of hay fields and hardwood forests. Trails begin out the back door and wind through fields and woods. Along with our garden, the house is surrounded by perennial beds and a number of fruit trees and berry bushes. The apartment has outstanding views of kirby mountain, fields, and hardwoods.
Along with our dog Kenai and cat Lulu, we have a small barn housing hilary's horse chipper and two alpine goats, violet and kirby.
While there is great dirt road biking and walking (nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months) out the back door, we are only 15 minutes from the incredible kingdom trails and 15 minutes from burke mountain. Our local supermarket, the white market, is five miles down the road. Saint johnsbury, 20 minutes distant, offers great movies at catamount arts as well as the worth seeing saint johnsbury atheneum and the fairbanks museum.
The apartment is perfect for two, though it can accommodate a maximum of four. Sheets and towels are provided.
There is ample parking for two cars.
A minimum two night commitment is required. Our rate is $110/ night for two and an additional $10/night for each additional guest up to four.
Tom is originally from New Haven, CT and Provincetown, MA. Hilary great up in Norwich, VT. We came to this area in 1991 to work at Burke Mountain Academy, the first sports academy in the country. After six years of dorm parenting, we built this house within a stone's throw of Burke. Six years ago we added our studio apartment. Hilary currently works at the local hospital (NVRH) in the marketing department. Tom retired from Burke Mt. Academy in 2011 and is currently a student in Antioch New England's MBA in Sustainability program. He's looking forward to getting back on his touring bike and exploring sustainability initiatives in Vermont and beyond.
Thomas De Carlo purchased this apartment in 1997
Our property provides the peace and quiet that most people are looking for on vacation. We are only 10 minutes from the Interstate 93 exit, yet there is a sense of being in a beautiful rural locale.
We often look out our windows and pinch ourselves. Whether it's the view of Kirby or Burke Mt., a full moon rising on a crystal clear night, or the blossoms of our fruit trees in the spring, we feel very grateful to be where we are. Friends who visit often say this is one of the most peaceful places they've ever been to. There's something about the natural beauty combined with our animal pals that makes for something very special.
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.
This is the second time my friends and I have stayed at this wonderful Vermont home. It sits at the top of a Vermont road that twists through the hills.
Once you get settled in, it is easy to get caught up in the wonderful view.
The great thing is, its only a 6 minute drive from downtown Lyndonville.
Perfect for 4 people.
The place is always clean, and well organized. It has a wonderful kitchen, and a bathroom that seems brand new!
The owners are great people. Great communication, always making sure we are satisfied. So easy going, and flexible as well.
