Jazzmamma's funky country cottage is a small house in a secluded area of Shelburne, VT. A nice, quiet place for relaxing yet close to Burlington, VT, Lake Champlain, and Ski areas. Close to local attractions such as the Shelburne Museum/Farms/Winery; VT Teddy Bear Factory; Mt. Philo State Park, walking trails, and the charming historic village green. 20 minute drive to Burlington, VT.
This is my mother's house that I recently inherited, and I am excited to open it up to AirBnB travelers. My mother worked for United Airlines for 20 years and loved to travel and host friends traveling.
Jazzmamma's does have it's funky quirks, but that's what you're looking for right? There's eclectic and vintage art and furniture around the house, the trim around the doors is scratched from a cat, there's marble flooring in the living room and carpet upstairs. But most importantly, it's welcoming and comfortable with it's eccentricities.
The whole house is available to you including the kitchen, all bathrooms, two bedrooms, and living room. I've locked doors to a few spaces that I'd like to keep private including the downstairs bedroom, the basement, and a closet.
The outside common spaces are open to use and neighbors are pretty friendly, but please be courteous of the areas around their homes to insure privacy. There is a common parking area and each house is allowed two spots so that everyone has room.
Interaction with guests
If you are at the house, that means I am not! I live in Boston but will be available to communicate with through phone, the Airbnb app, email, GChat/Facetime, etc., for any questions you have.
I do use the Airbnb app to communicate with guests most frequently, so please download before your stay if you don't have it already!
Other things to note
I would definitely welcome longer term guests and give discounts for monthly and weekly rentals. Longer term rentals can ask for access to laundry.
Please send me the full names of ALL GUESTS in your party before your stay.
If you want to bring a pet, please tell me about your pet (size, breed, etc...)
Please bring your own bathing towels. I have small towels for hands and face.
Please message me upon arrival to the house, and when you leave.
If anything breaks, rips, cracks, falls, etc. during your stay, please tell me right away!
Please make sure you read through the full house manual before your stay. (will have access to after booking)
I prefer if you have the Airbnb app on your mobile phone as that is the main way I communicate with guests. Please let me know if this is a problem.
