Our clean and cozy studio apartment, set on 80 acres of woodland and pasture with views of Mt Mansfield to the north, offers a quiet and picturesque VT country retreat only 25 min from the city of Burlington.

We have cross country ski and snowshoe trails out our door, and Sleepy Hollow Cross Country Ski-way is right down the road. If you're into downhill, we're surrounded by Bolton, Mad River, Jay Peak and Stowe.

The space

The studio apartment is on the first floor of a private building adjacent to our house. Upstairs from the apartment there is a large open space which can be used for yoga, meditation, dance, stretching, etc.

The space provides a perfect romantic getaway for 2 but can comfortably accommodate 4 adults or a small family. (We do charge a fee for extra adults after 2 BUT not for babies/young children traveling with their own bedding.) We have a new queen bed always made up with freshly washed linens. We also have a trundle bed set up as a couch but it can be made up into one or two twin beds (with clean linens), upon request.

There is a kitchenette with a sink, stove, full-size refrigerator/freezer, toaster, microwave, coffee machine and electric water heater. We provide coffee and a variety of teas, as well as honey, sugar, and milk or cream. The cabinets are stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, glasses and mugs, wine opener, and salt and pepper. The tap water is excellent for drinking. (And if you need anything else, please ask!)

The bathroom is quite spacious. We provide clean towels and fresh soap. There is also a hair dryer.

The room and bathroom are handicap accessible with about a one inch rise at the door and a level, gravel path to the door. Price includes 9% Vermont Rooms Tax.

Guest access

Guests are encouraged to explore our property, including the network of trails (probably about 1/2 mile, total) that winds through the woods and down to a beaver pond (with active beaver!).

We welcome guests to visit the ducks and horses inside the barn or outside in the pasture. (Bring some lettuce to feed the ducks- they go crazy for it!, but please do not feed the horses.)

Guests staying several nights are welcome to do a load of laundry or two inside our house.

Interaction with guests

We hope our guests feel comfortable stopping by to say hello at any time, if they would like. We have met so many interesting people this way! We also understand the desire for privacy and so we try not to be intrusive in any way.

Other things to note

We're a young and welcoming couple, with a strong love for Vermont. We purchased this place with the intention of preserving it as a homestead and creating a space that could be enjoyed by people of all different ages.

This was a perfect place for enjoying the nature and adventuring towns in Vermont! Mike, Rachel and their lovely son River were very nice to us and very responsive. They also make good honey! We bought one jar of it when we checked-out and tried when we got back home. It is the must-buy in Vermont I have to say!! I never tried unfiltered honey before and it was very flavoursome. My boyfriend had had unfiltered honey before so he convinced me to buy this with a high expectation. And he loves this honey a lot! I think he's going to have every breakfast with this honey. Hehe One complain about this place would be.. it was very cold! It was still snowy and cold when we went there (07/Apr/17 -10/Apr/17) and since the place was located in a mountain (or a bit higher than others) it was bit more colder. Inside of the studio, there is a heater but I do recommend you to bring good warm pyjamas and slippers. However, luckily there were bunch of tea and coffee we could drink. So they warmed us up very well. The studio was perfect for 2 guests. Summer has almost come, so I think it will be a perfect place to indulge all the nature in Vermont!

Great Scenic place, remote, but convenient to both Burlington and Waterbury/Stowe. Great hosts and comfortable studio apartment, a stones throw away from Mike's house. Looking forward to a return visit.

We absolutely loved our stay at Mike's place! While we didn't get to interact with him or Rachael because of our schedules, they always waved at us when we passed by. Their property is beautiful and a good distance away from various activities. Mike gave us plenty of suggestions before the trip, including activities and restaurants. Overall, we loved staying at the Swamp and will definitely come back again!

Mike was there to welcome us and show us the studio. It was great to have our own space. He was most helpful with planning our hikes.
