Property description

This recently renovated apartment in a large country home on 4 quiet acres features an open floor plan, large windows, fully furnished with stereo system, flat screen TV, dishwasher, king-sized bed, private bath and access to a shared washer and dryer.

There is a full size fold down futon couch in the living room, and two other bedrooms that can be rented. All together, the three bedrooms plus fold down futon sofa in the living room can accommodate up to eight guests. Email me for rates, but as a two bedroom the apartment rents for $150-$175 per night depending on the time of year.

Provided are linens, blankets, towels, pillows, and all cooking utensils, pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. The bathroom has both a shower and a tub.

This comfortable space offers a quiet retreat from the world.

Guests have access to the large treed yard and campfire pit (with picnic table) in a secluded area of the yard (please ask for help if you are not experienced with wood fires).

Access to a washer and dryer is included. The apartment has wireless internet service. Verizon cellphone reception is excellent in this area.

Monkton is a quiet Vermont village on the shore of Cedar Lake. Nestled in trees, secluded from the road, Hummingbird Lane winds off Rotax Road. This home is 35 minutes drive from downtown Burlington, 10 minutes from Hinesburg and 15 minutes from Bristol.

House Policies:

• In order to properly clean the home between guests, we've set a checkout of 11am and check in of 3pm, but we may be able to accommodate earlier check-in, or later check out. Please let me know if you would like special arrangements and I'll try to make it work with the cleaning person.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Pet Fee $20
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $200

Notes:

• The 9% Vermont Rooms and Meals Tax on stays of less than 30 days is included. No additional taxes are charged at check in.

• No parties or loud music. Dinner parties of up to 8 guest are fine. A couple with a long term lease also live in the building and appreciate peace and quiet.

• In order to properly clean the home between guests, we've set a checkout of 11am and check in of 3pm, but we may be able to accommodate earlier check-in, or later check out. Please let me know if you would like special arrangements.

• A dog may be welcome, depending. Let's discuss first. Dogs need to be gentle and peaceable, and not bark excessively. Finally, I'd ask that you pick up after your dog in the yard.

• No more than six guests in this apartment, although two additional bedrooms and an apartment are also available and altogether these can accommodate twelve people.

• Please only put toilet paper in toilets as I am on a septic system and disposal of flushable wipes or feminine products causes the system to back up. The last time that happened, it took 24 hours for the septic company to come and clear the pipe, during which the toilets couldn't be used.

• Smoking is permitted outdoors only.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've been a full time artist for twenty two years. I try to give guests their privacy but am available for a studio tour if you would like. Prior to becoming an artist I worked on Wall Street and ran a small investment firm that concentrated on the securities of bankrupt and distressed companies. Before that I did a lot of things, including fight forest fires in northern Canada near Great Slave Lake. I'm very much into nature and paddling. I enjoy both whitewater kayaking and wilderness canoe trips. I divide my time between a cabin deep in an Adirondack nature preserve (The Split Rock Wildway) and my home in Monkton Vermont, about an hour away.

Why the Owner Chose Monkton, VT, USA:
This apartment is one of four in this large -- 4500 square foot house. Two are rented on a yearly basis, I live in one, and the other two are available for short term rental. The house is secluded from both the road and neighbors. The property is heavily treed -- I plant more trees each year with the thought that before too many more years go by I will no longer have to cut the lawn.
