Julia Volodina purchased this apartment in 2008
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Thanks, Julia for sharing your lovely apartment with us. We enjoyed the accommodations and the fabulous gardens! We've been to Brattleboro before but it was more fun to be in such a convenient and comfortable apartment! I can't recommend it enough!!
The whole process was problem-free. Julia met us and gave us the tour and let us be (which was our preference). When we crossed paths later, she was gracious enough to talk about the house and the extensive gardens.
We'll be back...
