My family of four stayed here for a week August of 2017. We found Jackie and Paul's place to be very well located, spacious and cozy, with a fantastic deck and great view of the mountains. The beds are comfortable, too. It was a great place to host friends from Burlington for a couple of nights. A nice walk down the hill to the coffee shop in the mornings. There are some very good restaurants in the area, (do find Flatbread Pizza for dinner and The Sweet Spot for lunch) artisan shops, and lots to do and see. If going in summer, some great hikes in the forest and a splash in the chilly water of Warren Falls are not to be missed. Jackie and Paul were very attentive, excellent communicators, lovely hosts. Highly recommend this experience.

The place has everything for a weekend getaway ! Its surrounded by trees and has a private backyard and a parking lot. Yet if you walk down for 10 min. you'd be arriving to the farmer's market and a shopping area with grocery stores, coffee shops and antique stores:) the house was clean, exactly as shown in photos. The owners were very responsive and they made it very convenient for us to enter the house even though we arrived around 2 am in the morning. I would def come back here for a long weekend!
