Lauren and Jeff's home is very lovely! It is a nice space with room for small groups, is very clean and neat and is in a wonderful location in the Green Mountains yet close to Burlington, VT. The hosts are very communicative and easy to work with.

Jeff & Lauren's home was a perfect place for our return to Vermont. Being very familiar with the area I was looking for a location central to many friends who live in northern Vermont and this was perfect. Their home is only about 20 minutes from downtown Burlington and almost the same from Waterbury so you have easy access to many of the wonderful surrounding towns without ever being too far away. Settled up on a gorgeous hill, the views at the bottom of the driveway alone are worth stopping and taking in. The house itself is amazingly peaceful and serene, nestled in the woods. It is perfectly outfitted for any visitors needs for a short or long stay. We had an absolutely amazing experience and would undoubtedly stay again for another trip! Thanks so much for an amazing stay! Can't recommend enough!

This light and open modern home feels welcoming as soon as you pull in the driveway. It is private and tucked away in the woods but nevertheless a short drive to the towns of Richmond and Huntington. The landscaping is lovely and the interior accommodations comfy and fully functional. We enjoyed our short visit and would happily return.

Lauren & Jeffrey User Profile

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. Good luck in your adventures!
