Carpe Diem, “La casa piú piccola di Burlington,” is a charming tiny cottage with an expansive view of Lake Champlain all day, and of its wonderful extended sunsets at day’s end. At 13 ft. x 18.6 ft., Carpe Diem is about three times the size of the main cabin on a 70-foot sailboat cruising by on the lake below you and includes radiant heat flooring, a fully equipped kitchen, full size bed, private bath and a garden at your doorstep.
This converted historic garage stands apart from the main house, and offers the same knowledgeable, friendly hospitality that has made One Of A Kind B+B true to its name and a constantly popular Burlington homestay.
This restored and restorative retreat is available for day, weekend, week-long or month-to-month stays.
Extended stay rates on request.

Cute and cozy cottage conveniently located.
The perfect place to hunker down in a snow storm. Everything was pretty much perfect. Will return for a summer view of lake Champlain.
"Hunker down"...a perfect descriptor! yes, please do return in the summer now that you have experience what many ask...what is winter like here? All best, m
Charming, thoughtful and delightfully close to everything!
We loved Maggie’s spot on the lake! Beautiful morning views of the lake, heated floors (important for Californians traveling in winter), and just a charming stay. Homemade granola, yogurt, coffee, and WiFi ... perfect for easy mornings before you start your day. Close to everything in Burlington - you can’t go wrong!
Thank you for your apprecation of my offerings! ....and the mention of the highlights!
Quaint and cozy with a fab view!
If you’re looking for a cozy little place with great views of the lake and proximity to town, this is it! Thanks to Maggie for such a lovely stay! :)
Thank you for the kudos.
The cottage had everything we needed!
Is amazing how Maggie thought of every little detail including a old fashion looking radio just perfect for the cottage I enjoyed listening to it. Most of all I saw the most beautiful sunset ever. Maggie was very helpful with information about Burlington the one time we saw her.
It was peaceful perfect get away

Magnificent little cottage on Lake Champlain!
This is a wonderful little cottage with an amazing view of Lake Champlain. Maggie's is a wonderful hosts and provides a lot of amenities in this small cottage. I really enjoyed the local foods that were left for us to enjoy. I highly recommend this cottage!

Beautiful spot and close to downtown Burlington
Great place to stay. Very welcoming and a beautiful property. The bed was the only thing we wished was different.
Hi, glad to hear all was swell....except for the bed you indicate. There is always something to improve this tiny beauty spot. Please tell me your suggestions for the bed. As stated in the description there is one full size bed with the footboard removed. The full size best fits this tiny house. The removed footboard accommodates those who are tall. Safe travels, always.
Relax and rejuvenate
