This newly built modern rustic mother-in-law cottage offers a convenient place to stay while exploring the Burlington/Winooski area. The cottage is nestled in my backyard on a quiet street in vibrant Winooski. The home is a 10 minute drive to downtown Burlington & the airport, and a short walk to the river, several cafes, restaurants, pubs, a local grocery store, and a brewery. Winooski is referred to as “the Brooklyn of Burlington” because of the foodie scene and rich cultural diversity.

The space
This artsy newly built home is the perfect place for 1-5 people that are looking for comfort, personality, and a private space to reside. The cottage is equipped with:

-2 comfy full-sized beds
-1 futon couch/bed
-Luxurious toilet with a heated seat, bidet, & bum dryer
-Full shower (with shower wand) & bathtub
-Projector for movie nights
-Full kitchen with coffee, tea, spices, cooking oil, and all cookware
-Skylight with a view of Burlington
-Free parking
-Games, towels, and other extra amenities
-Fire pit with Adirondack chairs April-November
-Stairs that are easy to climb
-Outdoor table and chairs & corn-hole set (April-November)
- In the summer guests can enjoy my garden's harvest

Check in anytime after 3PM (please plan for 3PM but, upon request, I can message you if it is ready sooner)
Check out: 11AM

Other things to Note:
Guests must agree to abide by the below COVID precautions and no smoking or pets policy.

COVID-precautions: All guests must agree to Vermont's Lodging Certificate of Compliance (use your search engine to search "Vermont Certificate of Compliance") for everyone in their party before the host will accept the reservation request. Additionally, all guests must physically sign the certificate upon arrival. Guests must be either vaccinated or obtain a negative test taken a week prior to arrival. As guests enter, they will see hand sanitizer on the floor that is to be used EVERY time they enter the cottage and guests should thoroughly wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Additionally, all dishes must be sanitized by using the dishwasher using the detergent under the sink before being put away. Furthermore, if any guest in the cottage tests positive for COVID-19 or exhibits symptoms within 14 days of the stay, they must inform the host immediately. It is very important that all my guests have as safe an experience as possible so thank you in advance for being considerate and for doing your part.

Sleeping arrangements & no pet policy: I can only accommodate five guests in the cottage (two full sized beds and one to sleep on the folding futon couch). I’m sorry but no pets are permitted at this time. Additionally, the full kitchen is equipped with everything except an oven (it has a very nice stovetop).

Guest Access:
Parking: Street parking is readily available on the side of the street that my house is on.

Access: I will send guests a key code for the cottage via AirBnB messages when the reservation is confirmed so they can enter any time after 3PM and make themselves at home.

Dog: A sweet pup named Kano Bear lives with me in the main house and does his business/plays in the back yard a few times a day (he is very very friendly and affectionate). If you would rather not have a dog around, please let me know and I will make sure to give you your space (I completely understand).

Gate: To open from the outside, pull the wire. To open when you are leaving, lift the lever- it does not lock

2019 Reviews: The reviews from guests in 2019 are for the old building in the same location that did not have plumbing or sewer and has since been demolished. The current building has been built in its place and has all the creature comforts you can ask for (including a luxurious toilet and shower in the unit) and the same attentive host.

During your stay

I do my best to give guests their privacy. I work from home so I am around most of the day (but can't always answer the door)- just shoot me a message and I will answer promptly.
