About Nancy Owens

We've lived in Burlington for nearly 20 years. We love Lake Champlain for sailing and swimming and the nearby mountains for skiing all winter.

We have a friendly dog and cat who have access to the fenced back yard where the garage-mahal is located.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great base location to explore part of Vermont. If you have a bike you wouldn't need a car to get around the city. The apartment is a good size for 2 people. It is easy to make your own food in, although I wouldn't want to miss out on the fantastic restaurants! The owners are very nice and the dog is adorable.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

The owner, his wife, and especially their dog, are so laid back that they make you feel welcome from the get-go. Very helpful, yet not at all intrusive.

My first impression (and at the top of my personal preference list) was that it was clean! Well-stocked with kitchen appliances and dishes, linens and paper products. Parking right in front of the house. Also a huge closet, so no worries about overpacking. Even Netflix if you're so inclined.

We went to Burlington for 4 nights just to get away. There was no shortage of things to do within only a few miles. The best part was that it wasn't "touristy" with wall-to-wall people. Bring your bikes or you'll be missing out! Also, we wish we had brought our bathing suits - we didn't realize that you could swim along Lake Champlain.

So go to Burlington and stay at the Garage Mahal. It's a gem.

Owner's Response: Swimming in the lake just a few minutes walk away is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.

Fun stay in Burlington, VT.

  • 5 of 5

This place is as cool as it looks online. The owner was very nice and super helpful about local info. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bed super-comfy and we felt right at home right away. I love this town and having a quiet neighborhood mini-suite was wonderful! Too bad we didn't bring our bikes since that's a great way to get around town- the bike path is a minute a way from there!

Love Burlington!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we rented was immaculate and just perfect for my husband and I. Much better than a hotel as there is a full kitchen for those inclined to cook. The location is extremely ideal as it is close to downtown Burlington and the lake/paved bike path. It is also an easy commute to Stowe, Vermont (60 miles) if you want to explore that area. The apartment is located in a residential area and was very quiet. Bonus - Cleo the Dog - the owners' dog whom we loved! We would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.
