LOCATION: You are a 5 minute walk to Waterfront Park and the bike path. 20 minute walk (stroll) to downtown Church St. You can walk to UVM and Champlain College but it's a bit far and you'd may prefer to drive.
Touring outside of Burlington? Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Museum and Vineyard are just 7 miles away. The Ben and Jerry's factory tour is 45 min. away. Skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing (Bolton, Mad River & Stowe) are within easy driving distance (30-50 min depending on the mountain).
FOR THE SAKE OF DISCLOSURE & ACCURACY, please read the following BEFORE you request a reservation:
1. The apt. has two floors so you should be able to climb stairs.
2. There is one bathroom located in the master suite on the 2nd floor. If you are using the sleeper-sofa, that person(s) has to walk through the master bedroom to access the bathroom.
3. Guests use street parking but can use the driveway to load/ unload luggage & gear.
4. Guests have access on the side of the house which faces East (that has the covered porch). The backyard (facing West) is reserved for the owners.
5. Although our street is one of the most valued parcels of real estate in Burlington, the surrounding neighborhood can be loosely described as transitional (but absolutely safe). You should be comfortable with seeing immigrants in the neighborhood.
Private residence with it's own entrance but attached to our house. Guests have full access to the apt and the front porch. The backyard is reserved for the owners.
Interaction with guests

Other things to note
I have a friendly indoor-outdoor cat named Clyde. He is not allowed in the apartment but during the warmer seasons, he can be found lounging on the porch outside the apt.
No candles. No smoking inside the apt. Smoking is ok on the porch. No parties. A small gathering of friends and family is allowed. Guests use street parking but can use the driveway for loading/ unloading baggage.
