About Chris & Emily

Although we were raised in Vermont we are both world travelers. We purchased this property in 2013 and built the barnyard tiny home in 2016. We love meeting new people and wanted to create a nest for others to call home on their journey through this beautiful part of the Northeast. We love anything healthy, natural and wood grain. You can often find us dancing to our favorite 80’s classics while creating something new in the kitchen from our garden. We are passionate about food, flavors, learning new things and most of all enjoying the simple things in life.

Chris & Emily purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris & Emily chose Burlington

This spot is quite accessible to all areas of Vermont via our main roadway. We have some of the most tree cover on our property for the neighborhood, still getting good light from the sun 16 hours a day in the summer. It was sturdy, safe, and had a charming vibe to it from first visit. We could not ask for more.

What makes this house unique

1) Although biking and driving are heavily preferred, you can technically walk anywhere from here, and it is beautiful for a stroll. There are bike lanes on the roads into Burlington form here.

2) Biodiversity (birds especially) and lush growth on the property + having [Vermont] urban proximity.

3) Definitely before, but now more than ever, this property has ecologically optimized and energy conscious principles in use and available.

Beautiful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This carriage house was beautiful. It was spotless and a very comfortable place to stay for our vacation in Vermont. The owners thought of everything and we really appreciated it. Highly recommended if you plan to visit Burlington.

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in this little carriage house. The location of the property was perfect for our needs. The design of this property made it delightful for it's occupants and the attention to detail was amazing. Both my husband and I were amazed at how beautifully constructed the property was and that Chris and his father had built it.

My only suggestions to future renters would be to mention if you would like fresh eggs that the chickens outback provide and the granola that Emily mentions in the information booklet which we had not seen until our departure. Also, only toilet paper is provided so if you are a fan of paper towels and Kleenex (even though we should all be cutting back on usage) you will need to purchase these for yourself.

We again wish to say what a wonderful experience we had and that if we ever return to Vermont we would rent this property without hesitation.

Spa like with a lot of nice details!

  • 5 of 5

This spot is pristine! Very private and beautiful details. I kept seeing really cool design features over the weekend I stayed here. The hosts thought of everything from an iron to sunscreen. It was the perfect location for our visit to VT!

The world's cutest, most innovative apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had no idea how much we would love this marvelous little place. The owner and his dad did most of the physical work creating it, and the loving care that went into it - all the neat tricks for optimum use of space plus the decorative touches - reflect a ton of time and effort. And - everything is top of the line and designed for energy efficiency. I, trapped at home with an electric stove, was tempted almost daily to kiss the beautiful gas stove. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We will definitely go back.
