About Julia Volodina
I am a portrait artist, who likes to remodel houses.
Julia Volodina purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Julia Volodina chose West Brattleboro
This property used to belong to the Father of American Contract Bridge, Ely Culbertson. It was his last property where he wrote books about world peace. He was a fascinating person, who lived many lives.
What makes this Apartment unique
The house has advantages of both worlds: being in the forest and the same time not far from everything that the area can offer. It is quiet and private, and located next to the woods where there are extensive hiking trails.

Great location and space
This room is great for a quick weekend stay. I went with my husband and 2 year old daughter, the space of this studio is very large. All the things in previous reviews that people have complained about have been addressed - there is plenty of lighting, bed (is sooo comfy and huge), the TV works, parking is sufficient... the furniture is outdated but who cares? You're not there to sit on the couch all day and it's not your house. Julia was more than accommodating and someone is always around to address any concerns. The location is beyond amazing, you can walk to the Vermont Country Deli and the farmer's market, and it's only a 5 min drive to downtown Brattleboro. It was a great stay and reasonably priced.
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for pointing out that we have addressed issues raised by previous guests. We take guest feedback very seriously and are always working to address guests' concerns and improve the experience here at the Culbertson House.
Thanks again and we hope to host you again for future trips to Brattleboro.
Perfect spot for a Brattleboro visit!
My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Culbertson House with our greyhound to visit family in the area. The studio is a great location, only a little over a mile into town. It is a large apartment with a comfortable king bed, a large fireplace (with plent of firewood available), and plenty of seating for guests. Julia could not have been nicer, we drove up during a nor’easter, and Julia let us in early. We had a great stay, and will definitely look to stay there again on our next visit.
Home away from home!
We came for a fur friendly family vacation. We enjoyed the spaceand the hosts very much! The accommodations were perfect; the location allied us hiking, kayaking, and cycling. We will definitely be back soon! Dani & Z
Bottom line, you get what you pay for. This was the cheapest place in the Brattleboro area at the time. Several small things need attention now are they will turn into big things later. I fixed a couple of things myself and pointed out problems to the owner. I'm not going to throw anybody under the bus as the place was not horrible. However, I strongly suggest an update of furnishings to bring the place in to the here and now. It reminded me of my Grandma's home in the 70's. The location is great and close to downtown. Caution going up to the house as the road up the hill has some bad potholes.
forget this one
The most attractive feature of this place is the price and it is not low enough for what you get. There are no screens on the windows so you can't ventilate the place without inviting the bugs in, the tv doesn't work, internet service is maddenly intermittent, the kitchen furnishings are sparse (no hot pads, no cereal bowls, no dish washing sponge/brush, etc) and equivalent in quality to Goodwill rejects, no soap in bathroom, poor lighting, etc. Surprised it met minimum requirements for vrbo listing.
Thank you for your review of the Studio at Culbertson House, and we are very sorry that the apartment did not meet your expectations. We do feel that a response is in order for future guests to have an accurate idea of the accommodations.
The guests were advised of an existing problem with our internet/tv provider; the problems with intermittent service were, unfortunately, out of our control and have been rectified at this time. The TV does, indeed, work just fine.
There are hot pads on the shelves above the kitchen sink. There are four bowls of varying sizes, bought new, that we have always thought of as cereal bowls; we have put in two more cereal-sized bowls in the apartment, so that hopefully future guests will find the size bowl that is just right for them. There is a dishwashing sponge in there, in addition to the dishwasher. I'm not sure what the guest means by Goodwill rejects; all the kitchen equipment is either new or in perfectly fine shape for a guest's needs. We will, of course, review all the furnishings in the kitchen and upgrade anything that is less than satisfactory.
There was and is soap in the bathroom shelves; as we always stress to our guests, if they cannot find something or if something like soap is missing, we live only steps away in the apartment next door and urge our guests to come by and ask for anything they need, such as an additional lamp or light.
We have consistently gotten 4-star reviews for the studio here and most of our guests have been extremely satisfied with the comfort, location, and amenities. We are very sorry that this guest had a less-than-positive experience, and we will be working to fix any problems addressed in their review.
Would not return
We stayed two nights in this studio. The pros: the bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the fire place. Also we could have our dog with us. Cons: the studio was very dark and furnishings shabby.
The town of Brattleboro with a wide variety of shopping and entertainment is 1.5 miles from the house. Skating rink 2min walk. Covered bridge and Farmers market 5 min walk. Memorial Park with ski lifts in the winter and swimming pool in summer, 5 min. walk.
