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.

Great Place for a Large Group
My large group of friends stayed over the long MLK weekend at Good Commons and really enjoyed our stay. Mary, who handled the booking, was so receptive and efficient which made the booking really easy. The location is great between Killington and Okemo, although one thing to note is if you are planning to go out in the town of Killington at night, they do not have taxi service or uber, so be sure to plan on driving; we almost found this out the hard way! The property can sleep SO many people; we had 16 people and there was still many open beds left. There are also so many bathrooms so there was never a wait. The beds were really comfortable and there were towels and toiletries to use, which was great. The owner of the property was so kind and warm, and acted quickly when there was a bit of a heating issue and got it resolved without a complaint. She was wonderful! We also took advantage of the on site massages, from Olga, which everyone raved about in addition to having a meal cooked for us one night- that was so delicious and felt really special. Overall everyone loved their stay! One other great thing is the living room can fit a bunch of people comfortably, which I don't think the pictures do it justice! We all spoke on how we would love to come back again!
Thank you so much Gabrielle for bringing your delightful group to Good Commons. We would love to have you come back any time - you were a pleasure to work with and we hope that the weekend lived up to your expectations.
Good Commons is wonderful
We came there for our family Easter / Spring Skiing trip. We had a wonderful time in this house that was filled with everything you could ever ask for. The communication with Mary the house manager was incredible. Thank you for making this a wonderful trip for all of us.
Our stay was wonderful!
A perfect stay!
I just got home from spending 3 nights at Good Commons for my 50th birthday! There were 23 of us and it was so comfy cozy. You never felt on top of each other. The house was very cool and almost maze-like. Mary, the manager was always immediately responsive to any questions I had. The owner, Tesha, came one night to cook us this amazing farm-to-table meal. The Salt Ash Inn across the street had an adorably cozy pub with a great band, pool table, fireplace and Owner. Plenty of parking. I cannot say enough about Vermont, the vendors I worked with, then home and the weekend. Smiles were rampant all weekend long! Thank you so much Mary and Tesha!! I'm still coming down off the weekend high. xo
We're so happy that we were able to help make your 50th Birthday Weekend one to remember! You and your group were a pleasure to work with - and we would love to host you again so please stay in touch.
Plenty of bedrooms and lots amount of space with a big kitchen. However, the toilets needs to be updated and a stronger stove for the big kitchen
We were impressed on how big yet welcoming the house is!
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!
