About this listing

Your space will put you close to UVM, Champlain College and St. Michael's College, the airport, downtown Winooski and Burlington. It works for couples, friends (or beloveds!) who prefer separate beds, business travelers, parents/students visiting colleges, parents traveling with a child or if you'd just like a bit more than a bedroom in case it's rainy and your outdoor plans fall through!

I can often be flexible about check-in time if we communicate ahead of time.

The space

The upstairs suite is entered through a shared front door; guest space is up the stairs (one flight). Your space and mine are separated by an internal downstairs door (at the foot of the stairs). I have used a few antiques to fit with the character of the house, which is an old, brick farmhouse style.

Guest access

You will have the use of upstairs: one bedroom with a queen-sized bed (TempurPedic mattress and quality bedding), and, if needed, a smaller bedroom with a single day-bed. You will also have the use of a three-quarter bath (shower, no tub use currently). This is your space; mine is downstairs. One review mentions a private entrance. Technically, there isn't one - but I am glad it evidently feels private! We both enter through the same front door. I turn left (behind an interior door) and you head up the stairs.

You'll find a small microwave oven and mini-fridge for your use near the foot of the steps. I also provide Starbucks Via (instant) and tea/cocoa makings and an electric kettle.

In nice weather, guests can often access my back garden through a (locked) gate. (Reminder: no unregistered guests are permitted indoors or out without my specific permission.) Occasionally, the outdoor space may not be available if I am hosting family/friends myself, but I will more likely make it available.

Parking: there is usually on-street parking available on my block or around the corner. In the winter, or if space is tight, I can provide one off-street parking place.

About air conditioning: I have window air conditioners installed only in the hottest weather as many people prefer fresh air/quiet. Please inquire about status.

Interaction with guests

I can often be flexible about check-in time if we communicate ahead of time. Please let me know if you need directions. Barring emergencies, I will be home to greet you and help get you oriented; in rare situations that I cannot be present to welcome you, I will communicate clearly how to get into the space.
Please plan to provide me with an arrival 'window' - earliest/latest you plan to arrive (roughly).

Other things to note

My home is two blocks from the local police station, and Winooski has been named the #3 safest town in Vermont. It's so close to UVM and the med school/hospital that I can see the night lights from the ballpark and the hospital, in winter. At the same time, it is generally very quiet at night – though there is some air traffic given the proximity to the local airport.
For anyone with young children: I've found the house is very forgiving in terms of sound. Yes, I hear footsteps above, but I did NOT wake up when either of two toddlers cried during the night (as toddlers will : ) I slept right through. So you can be anxious about other things - but not about waking me up! It's a solid brick house and we will both have privacy.

My wife and I were in Burlington for a wedding, and this place was perfect. Anne was a fantastic host, the place was comfortable and clean, and the location is great for getting to downtown Burlington or staying within Winooski.

Anne is a wonderful hostess. She's attentive but not obtrusive. The space was the perfect size for 2 adults not sharing a room and planning to eat out a lot. I stayed in the smaller room and the bed is comfortable. Everything is clean and comfortable. Anne checked in with us multiple times to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we need.

Perfect place for a stay close to Burlington. Easy access to downtown Winooski and a quick cheap Uber ride from downtown Burlington. Anne was excellent and very communicative!

Anne's home was nice and quiet. Anne was a great host so helpful and accommodating. Winooski is within walking distance and the food and night life is pretty good. A short ride to Burlington and a little longer ride to Stowe definitely worth going for anyone interested in craft beer. Overall an amazing beercation we will definitely come back and stay with Anne in the future.

Anne User ProfileAnne is a superhost.

I'm 60+, semi-retired, and enjoy sharing my home in the "new Winooski" just across the river from Burlington, VT -- after many years in NYC and abroad. My circa 1890 brick home is in Winooski, a former mill town that some call "Burlington's Brooklyn". We're growing, with a wonderful mixture of creative singles, refugee families, new and older shops, and both moderately priced ("Sneakers") and upmarket restaurants ("Misery Loves Company"). And of course, we're near all that Vermont has to offer - skiing, hiking, Lake Champlain, and as the local slogan goes: "[Fill in the blank]? We've got a festival for that!"
