About Lauren & Jeff
My wife and I, Lauren, currently live in Richmond, VT with our newly born daughter Abigail. We recently bought the house next door to make room for our growing family. My wife Lauren is a reading teacher and I'm a CPA. We are well established in our professions and are honest, reliable, responsive, and responsible. Lauren is an avid reader and likes working on picture projects and I enjoy home brewing and golfing. We enjoy all things outdoors, especially going for hikes from our back yard or canoeing in the pond just down the road. We are blessed to have found such a beautiful place to live and look forward to sharing it with our guests. Thank you for considering staying with us.

Great home, beautiful location
The house was beautiful! It was very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the privacy of three separate bedrooms. We also enjoyed using the grill on the porch and exploring the hiking trail in the backyard. Would definitely return!
We stayed at this house for a second time. It is in a great location with beautiful views from every window. It is clean and nicely furnished. The beds have nice sheets and are comfortable. The owner is quick to respond. There are a couple of restaurants and a grocery store very close in Richmond and Burlington is a short drive. Our Daughter is a student at UVM and this is a perfect place for all of us to stay while visiting her. Thank you!
My family and I stayed in Richmond, VT for a long weekend this January. We have stayed in many VRBO homes and this one was by far the easiest and most enjoyable yet. Lauren and Jeff have a beautiful rental home and are well-prepared for guests. The views from the dining room are stunning and the kitchen is stocked with all of the right gear for some proper family cooking. I highly recommend this spot and we will be coming back as soon as our schedules allow!
Great relaxing house!
Jeff and Lauren were wonderful hosts and helpful even during the sub-zero Arctic chill of 2018!
It was an awesome home! Very clean and beautifully decorated. Everything was perfect down to the little details of having snow shoes and sleds for us to play with. I would highly recommend Jeff and Lauren VRBO home to everyone!
A wonderful place
This is our second time traveling to Vermont for a vacation and I didn't think our experience could be any better than our first visit, but I was wrong. Four years ago we made a trip during December and we stayed at the typical hotel in Burlington that was on a main road and included breakfast. As a Floridian, we thought it would be great for our family since we were not familiar with driving in the snow and it seemed convenient. We enjoyed our stay and made reservations at the same hotel this year until my wife found this place. I was concerned at first since it was in a smaller town and off the main road, but we thought we would take a chance. We changed our reservations and it was the best decision we made. We stayed 9 days and spent 6 of them at the rental property since we didn't want to leave. There is so much this place has to offer from the cleanliness, views, serenity, trails and even amenities such as sleds and snow shoes in the garage. The days past so quickly as we enjoyed every one of them. Jeff is a terrific host as he is very responsive to phone calls and maintaining the driveway in the event of too much snow. He answered all my questions prior to our reservations about my concerns with the snow, and I felt very comfortable driving. I'm reluctant to make too high of a recommendation since I want this place to be available next time we visit Vermont, but I would like this review to help others in their decision making as they have done for us. Thank you for everything Jeff. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Alan and Marie Louise and family!
