About Liz Waller
I grew up in Virginia, moved to Massachusetts for college, and have been in New England ever since. Vermont is by far my favorite place to live and experience the unique beauty of each season. After years of enjoying home-sharing as a guest, it's been delightful to open up my place as a host. I live here in the main section of the house, tho often gone during the day. I am owner/operator of Sister Services, L3C, and provide individualized care to seniors to enhance their quality of life.
Why Liz Waller chose Springfield
This property is uniquely located on a state road, but as soon as you park the car, one can disappear into an oasis of peace surrounded by the ever-moving river, wildlife, and a sense of timelessness. So often in Vermont, one has to venture far out of town on dirt roads to find an oasis--which is fine of course!--but as someone who travels for work, it's perfect for jumping on the interstate in less than 10 minutes. The best of both worlds. One can be completely secluded in the nonhuman world, or join the community at local restaurants, bars, movie theatre, in 15 minutes, and skiing in 35 minutes.

This is a wonderful place and Liz is a wonderful host. My daughter and I had a lovely time kayaking on the serene Connecticut River. We ate fresh tomatoes off the vine and lounged about and cozied up in her sweet little downstairs apartment. Will most definitely be going back. Thanks Liz ❤️💕
We were greeted by Liz, the friendly owner of the property. She explained every aspect of the apartment, how everything worked, where to find things, and how to reach her if needed. This place is well-equiped, very comfortable, clean, and was exactly what we were looking for. It had a paddle boat, paddle board and 2 kayaks which we used every day in the quiet Connecticut River right in front of the house. We went around an island and what I loved the most was how the sky and the trees were reflected on the calm waters. It was truly magical just like Liz described it. Although we did not use the fire pit, it is there for anyone's enjoyment. Great place and exceptional hostess. Thank you for such pleasant stay.
Great Place to Rest
This property was excellent, and the owner Liz was outstanding! Our family was looking for a relaxing place to stay after we spent time with the in-laws and ran a half marathon. Could not have made a better choice than staying at "The Odyssey".
Liz has a little guide in the room for the local area -- and it's definitely a boon. The personalized recommendations of what to see/do in the area is very detailed and extremely helpful. Don't expect to do too much though -- with the river right out back and all the recreational equipment (there's a bunch) most of the time is spent on the water!
Our dog had a great time, too. Yard is large enough to throw a ball/frisbee from end to end. There isn't a fence -- but that was just fine for us because our pooch prefers hanging around people.
We very much enjoyed our stay here and found it very peaceful. The owner (Liz) is a very nice person and provided us with everything to make us comfortable. The river is a great place to just sit and relax.
Would definitely recommend this great place to “get away”.
Cozy riverfront apartment
This river front apartment is cozy and well decorated. Owner Liz thoughtfully provided some snacks, drinks, etc. We enjoyed the peddle boat on the river. Unfortunately, the Kayak went missing on July 4th. Owner Liz pulled out the second Kayak for us to use and properly secured the remaining boats on the water. Hopefully Liz will locate the missing Kayak soon. Thank you.
