Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)
Cozy apartment with flower gardens and open lawns in a lovely rural setting. Walking, cross country ski paths, mountain bike paths just outside your door. Year round outdoor hot tub for the best stargazing. Although the hot tub is shared with our family it is yours while you are here!
Open and hot 24 hours!
Private porch with sitting area or hammock hanging.
Area for bonfire and wood provided for that fun night of toasting marshmallows and making s'mores.
Every season offers something special. Fall is the best with sunny days, magically changes leaves to gold's and reds. Winter with all the different shapes of flakes turning the yard into a winter wonderland. In heavy storms we will share our garage with you! Spring is a joy with the tulips and daffodils. And then that summer heat to swim, bike, and lay in the sun. Private patio with sitting or hammock. All linens are provided.
Pets are ok if approved prior. There are cats who live on the property. Available year-round, weekend rentals possible.
Washer and Dryer are available, but are shared with family. We are happy to help you.
Although I advertised romantic because it is a special spot, I also am a parent of 3 grown children. I welcome families with children. It is ideal to have space to spread out and a separate bedroom for parents. I will provide games, DVDs, toys that are age appropriate given advance notice.
For the 3rd child/person I have a roll away bed, to set up in the living room near the convertible futon. It is so difficult to travel with 3 children in one room hotels I wanted to offer that to larger families.
The area is perfect for parents visiting college students as YOU get a home away from home. Close to the universities, but with room for your child to come visit and hang out and even stay over some nights. Dorm living can get tiresome and a trip to the country can be rejuvenating and relaxing for that student.
There are organic and regular grocery stores and excellent restaurants with 5 minutes of the house. The local factory outlets are also within 5 minutes.
$600/week with one half of the weekly rental required upon booking and the the other half required 2 weeks before arrival. There is a $300/damage deposit required with first deposit. This will not be used and will be returned upon inspection of the property after departure.

Myself, husband and three children have lived at the house on this property for 20 years. It is a wonderful place to hang out. We are hikers, bikers, skiers, knitters, and avid readers. We are in the country, but close to the major Vt city of Burlington (20 minutes), UVM and Champlain College (20 minutes), St Michael's (15 minutes). We love going to all the local ski area. The two closest 16 miles away (Bolton and Smugglers Notch) and the others about 30-40 minutes (Sugarbush, Stowe, Jay Peak). We are excited to share our little corner of paradise with others.

A great place!
My wife and I wanted to come to Vermont to check out the Burlington and Montpelier areas for a week. I found this hidden gem tucked away in a town that is pretty much right in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go so we thought, perfect! The space is a lot bigger than I thought. The bed is comfy and having a kitchen is a huge plus. We plan on returning this winter for a snowboarding trip and will definitely stay here again!
Thank you so much for your review!
We would love to have you back for your snow boarding adventures, or any adventures!!
Very nice apartment that abbuts the owners house. About 20 minutes from Burlington, so great location. Very quiet.
the property was very ice. It was a great place.
It was kind of awkward going down the hallway to the hot tub, you were looking into the living room of the home owners house. But over all it was a pleasant and quite stay. We had 2 dogs and all went good. A lot of space to walk them.
I am glad you and the dogs enjoyed yourselves.
Yes the hot tub is shared with the main house. Usually the curtains are closed between the hallway and the Living room, but we know this is Airbnb, and feel safe and friendly. It is a great way to get to know our guests.
Many of the Airbnb's we stay in we share living rooms.
Please come visit again anytime.
Very hospitable and nice
Cute apartment and hosts were very hospitable. We enjoyed our time in the hot tub after skiing. Great place!
Great country/city place
I loved the location. In country, but so near to Burlington and the little town of Richmond. We loved that it became chilly and could use the gas fireplace.
perfect retreat away
I had a wonderful stay in this apartment over the weekend. I went up to see my daughter at UVM with my sister, niece (14) and nephew (10) and my daughter joined us. It fit us all just right because we are a close family - 2 in the bedroom, 2 on the futon and 1 on an air mattress on the floor. It was comfortable but people sleeping in the living room area on the futon and couch would have trouble sleeping if they need it to be at all dark in the morning - even with shades pulled on the windows, the sun pours in the skylights! (fortunately, not a problem for us)
We were pleased to see that it has a simple but full kitchen, and spacious bathroom. It was so lovely to be able to use the hot tub both nights which was very easy and comfortable.
The toilet had a few problems but the owner was aware and very responsive.
The only other problem was that although she specifically requests that we don't hang wet towels on chairs, there are very few hooks really to hang them on - a bit of a problem as we had more wet towels from using the hot tub. (Would be easy to add some hooks in the hallway or over the closet doors.)
It is a 20-25 min drive from Burlington but it is an easy drive. It was a nice getaway from the busyness and crowds. I would happily return to stay at Brooklyn in Vermont again!
