About Mary Camilleri

I was raised on a dairy farm in rural Illinois and began doing back flips off the stereo when I was two. Before I could read a novel, I was doing full tumbling passes across the floor of a gymnastics class. Soon, I became Jr. National Champion for the United States Acrogymnastics Federation for mixed pairs — think Cirque de Soleil packed with a cast of overactive children. My childhood dream came true when I was cast in the role of Rumpleteazer in Cats on Broadway. After Broadway, I directed and choreographed many shows regionally and off Broadway, and I served as a choreographer for five seasons at Vermont’s famed Weston Playhouse where my love affair with The Green Mountain State began in 1999. Suffice it to say, I was on a pretty short ladder to theatrical success when suddenly everything changed. I had a new inspiration…

In 2003, I awoke from a dream with a powerful sense of urgency.

“You will open a center…”

This mantra was echoing in my head as I rubbed my eyes, and it wasn’t going to fade…

Mid year 2006, I traveled to Vermont to watch my best friend perform at the Weston Playhouse and saw the real estate listing for what would eventually become Good Commons. The walls of this old general store/home hadn’t seen a family live through a Vermont winter in over 25 years! But from first view, I knew it held outstanding potential, and the initial shell of Good Commons satisfied my dream list for what I thought that “center” meant for me.

My childhood dream came true when I made my very first entrance on Broadway in 1998. The dream I was only able discover as an adult comes true around me at Good Commons every day.

There have been many angels that have helped turn this old building into a beautiful home for relaxation, rejuvenation and a rockin’ good time. I am grateful that they have joined me in my dream, and I look forward to meeting you in it as well.

Mary Camilleri purchased this house in 2007

Awesome space

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the kindness and organization of the owner to the impressive features of the house worked to improve our stay. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone with a good sized group as it is built to handle large groups. We had a great time!

We were impressed on how big yet welcoming the house is!

  • 5 of 5

Owner and manager were very accomodating! Big enough for multiple familes. Big enough to not feel crowded yet intimate. The owner seems to be holistic and she sells home made products right on the property! Everyone in town is welcoming. My family and I would love to come back again next year!

Perfect Spot for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating a college reunion and the Good Commons was absolutely perfect. The house is very spacious, 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms was key for a group of 20. The house is labeled EVERYWHERE which made it impossibly easy to find everything. The hottub was perfect to ease our muscles after our skiing up at Killington. There is a great pub across the street and a ton of great restaurants/attractions within 10-15 min of the house. We hope to be back soon!

great property

  • 4 of 5

This home was rented for a weekend retreat to disconnect to reconnect. It accommodated 13 people very well. The outter appearance of the home can use some upgrading, however once inside this cabin style home is enormous. It felt like a maze, each door led to a different area of the home. Our favorite space was the kitchen, it was equipped with everything a cook could ever want and need. The furniture in the home is outdated but it fits the style of the home. The bedrooms were well kept, the beds were very comfortable. Our overall experience was a memorable one, the home had its way of connecting 13 individual souls to have an enriching experience. Btw I definitely recommend yoga, we had Ladda as an instructor. She paid attention to our individual needs. She was amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Alina! We so glad that your group enjoyed Good Commons, Ladda's class, and that you found the true essence of the home. It is a place that was built for people to reconnect with themselves, with their friends, and their families. We hope you want to come back some time!

Best house for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this place with 9 friends for 3 nights. I loved the house. It had everything we wanted, including a hot tub, a fireplace, and a grill. The house is huge and clean. I would definitely come back for my next ski trip.
