About Julia Volodina

I am a portrait artist, who likes to remodel houses.

Julia Volodina purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Julia Volodina chose Brattleboro

This property used to belong to the Father of American Contract Bridge, Ely Culbertson. It was his last property where he wrote books about world peace. He was a fascinating person, who lived many lives.

What makes this apartment unique

The house has advantages of both worlds: being in the forest and the same time not far from everything that the area can offer. It is quiet and private, and located next to the woods where there are extensive hiking trails.

So so...

  • 3 of 5

Bottom line, you get what you pay for. This was the cheapest place in the Brattleboro area at the time. Several small things need attention now are they will turn into big things later. I fixed a couple of things myself and pointed out problems to the owner. I'm not going to throw anybody under the bus as the place was not horrible. However, I strongly suggest an update of furnishings to bring the place in to the here and now. It reminded me of my Grandma's home in the 70's. The location is great and close to downtown. Caution going up to the house as the road up the hill has some bad potholes.

forget this one

  • 1 of 5

The most attractive feature of this place is the price and it is not low enough for what you get. There are no screens on the windows so you can't ventilate the place without inviting the bugs in, the tv doesn't work, internet service is maddenly intermittent, the kitchen furnishings are sparse (no hot pads, no cereal bowls, no dish washing sponge/brush, etc) and equivalent in quality to Goodwill rejects, no soap in bathroom, poor lighting, etc. Surprised it met minimum requirements for vrbo listing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Studio at Culbertson House, and we are very sorry that the apartment did not meet your expectations. We do feel that a response is in order for future guests to have an accurate idea of the accommodations. The guests were advised of an existing problem with our internet/tv provider; the problems with intermittent service were, unfortunately, out of our control and have been rectified at this time. The TV does, indeed, work just fine. There are hot pads on the shelves above the kitchen sink. There are four bowls of varying sizes, bought new, that we have always thought of as cereal bowls; we have put in two more cereal-sized bowls in the apartment, so that hopefully future guests will find the size bowl that is just right for them. There is a dishwashing sponge in there, in addition to the dishwasher. I'm not sure what the guest means by Goodwill rejects; all the kitchen equipment is either new or in perfectly fine shape for a guest's needs. We will, of course, review all the furnishings in the kitchen and upgrade anything that is less than satisfactory. There was and is soap in the bathroom shelves; as we always stress to our guests, if they cannot find something or if something like soap is missing, we live only steps away in the apartment next door and urge our guests to come by and ask for anything they need, such as an additional lamp or light. We have consistently gotten 4-star reviews for the studio here and most of our guests have been extremely satisfied with the comfort, location, and amenities. We are very sorry that this guest had a less-than-positive experience, and we will be working to fix any problems addressed in their review.

Would not return

  • 2 of 5

We stayed two nights in this studio. The pros: the bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the fire place. Also we could have our dog with us. Cons: the studio was very dark and furnishings shabby.

Great welcome to Vermont!

  • 4 of 5

We were fortunate to find Julia and David's kitty-friendly apartment in Brattleboro for our first month in Vermont. They were welcoming and friendly but also gave us plenty of privacy. The apartment was comfy and cozy and had every convenience we needed. Thanks, Julia and David!

perfect spot

  • 4 of 5

Julia is great - available if you need her but otherwise very low profile. My one very minor complaint is that the kitchen - large with frig, stove, microwave etc - had only a couple of huge unattractive mugs and bowls. Has there been a problem with theft? Since breakfast is the meal most likely eaten in a b and b, why not provide 4 nice coffee mugs and cereal bowls. Also there wasn't any black tea, usually a given. Otherwise a good deal and would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: We're happy you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for the observations. When you return to the Culbertson House you can be assured that there will be plenty of mugs and bowls and a nice box of black tea! We hope to see you again! Julia & David
