One Bedroom Apartment, Very Quiet, Great Views
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 propane 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 solar-powered 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.

About Thomas De Carlo
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
Why Thomas De Carlo chose Kirby
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.
Wonderful bright and clean space with great hosts!!
Really wonderful place to stay for the weekend! Highly recommended!!!
What a beautiful property!
This property really lives up to expectations. The home is gorgeous and there are many walking trails right around. Our dog had a great time seeing all the animals and going on walks behind the house. Hilary and Tom are wonderful hosts and supply you with everything you'll need for a great vacation. I highly recommend booking this home, we can't wait to return.
Peaceful Countryside Stay
This was our 2nd visit to the apartment and can't wait to return again! Clean comfortable and everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Enjoyed cooking and breathtaking views from the kitchen and deck.
Convenient to fishing, hiking, biking and skiing- all that NEK has to offer.
Tom & Hillary are wonderful hosts that totally respect your privacy but are there to offer any assistance needed.
Peaceful setting with spectacular views
This house fit our needs perfectly--very convenient to Kingdom trails and the house was beautiful. Tom and Hilary were perfect hosts and we will definitely be returning.
Everything a couple on vacation with their dog could ask for
Great location, spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable, with all the amenities we needed. Owners were friendly and informative, and a great resource for the region. Enjoyable fields and forests to walk the dog, and lots to do in the area. We could not have asked for more. The dog did not want to leave and neither did we. We will be back!
A little piece of paradise
This was our third stay and we thoroughly enjoy this location. Stunning views of the mountains, peaceful and relaxing. Both Thomas and Hillary are wonderful hosts. The gardens are plentiful with lettuces, raspberries and blueberries and guests are welcome to take advantage of these fruits and veggies.
