About this listing
Quiet neighborhood in desirable south end of town. Walking distance to Lake Champlain. Close to restaurants and downtown activities. Private back yard with large deck and landscaping. Antique decor, sunny living space. Upstairs bath shared with owner
The guest room has a double bed with a rarely used new comfy mattress and a selection of handmade quilts, crisp cotton sheets in warmer months and cozy flannel in the winter. There is closet space in the room and 2 bureau drawers available as well as a coat rack. Towels are supplied on the quilt rack in the room. Blanket is changed and washed between each guest for added comfort and cleanliness.
You are welcome to use any parts of the house (except my room, of course). Enjoy the quiet and lush surroundings on the back deck, lounging in the hammock or eating or working at one of the tables. Or grab a seat in the sun drenched living room or warm up by the fire of the gas heater. You will be given a key for access to come and go as you wish.
Interaction with guests
I will be here when you check in to answer any questions and direct you to an abundance of fun and entertainment close by. I'm currently working on a print out for this. Want to visit a brewery? We've got plenty close by. Vineyard, Citizen Cider, Ben and Jerry's, Champlain Chocolates, shopping, waterfront activities, biking, hiking, skiing, arts and entertainment, night life, Burlington has it all! Unless specified prior to arrival, I will be in and out all during your stay.
Other things to note
Please let me know of your approximate arrival time within a day prior to your arrival so I am prepared and available. If I don't hear from you until you are in town and ready to check in, I may not be as readily available (I am pretty active and busy myself!!)
Please adhere to the No Smoking rule, including the yard and premises.
I do not charge a cleaning fee and have listed a fair rate: please respect the space so I can continue doing this.

Active single retired teacher. Recently moved into Burlington from years of being a country girl and loving it! Access to lake, restaurants, festivals, music, culture. Spend time kayaking, biking, hiking, and outdoor festivities in the summer. Skiing and projects in the winter. Have a 2 year old sweet and super friendly yellow lab. Quiet home, no TV, but wireless internet access. Love this quiet little neighborhood so accessible to downtown! 2 miles to the downtown marketplace, or hop on the bus at the top of the block, or walk up the bike path along the lake. A lively arts neighborhood with lots of studios nestled into old brick warehouses throughout. Several live theater and music venues. Switchback Brewery, 4 short blocks away. Citizen Cider, Queen City Brewery, Zero Gravity Brewery, and Lake Champlain Chocolates all just up the street. Friday food trucks during warmer months less than 1.5 miles.I just purchased 2 bicycles at our local bike swaps for your riding pleasure. Helmets, locks, and lights for each, only $5/day to help defray costs! Access to my 2 kayaks upon request.
