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.

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

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

Very Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this cute studio apartment, perfect for two people. Everything was very clean when we arrived. The owner showed us around and was very accommodating. Appliances all worked well. Location is perfect for exploring Brattleboro and all the small towns in that area of Vermont; close to I-91, and just off state Rte 9. Highly recommend this property!

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

The studio/cottage is an attractive and comfortable space. The location is ideal – just a few minutes from downtown Brattleboro and right next to Saturday’s glorious farmer’s market. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans, etc., and the bathroom was fine, though a new mat for the floor wouldn’t be a bad thing to get. There was adequate storage space (drawers, closet), so that we could empty our suitcases – not something to take for granted! And good reading lights on both sides of the bed - a feature missing from many pricey hotels! The garden is beautiful. The Wifi worked well.

The August week was unusually hot and humid, but with the window a/c, the space was comfortable. A good fan is also available.

Our major reservation has to do with seating for eating – there’s no dining table inside (though there is a glass table just outside the front door), just an island with a counter that is much too high for comfortable eating. Also, the driveway has some remarkable potholes that should be filled. Since it’s shared with another property, this might not be Culbertson’s responsibility, but someone should take care of it.

Julia was welcoming and very helpful – directing us, for example, to the perfect swimming hole about five miles away.

Ours was a happy stay at Culbertson House.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review and comments. You're absolutely right about the "remarkable" potholes!! It is not actually on our property so there's not that much we can do, unfortunately, though we are certainly working on a solution. We hope that for your next visit to the Culbertson House the road will be nice and smooth! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and take care! Julia & David
