Guests enjoy views of Camel's Hump, the Green Mountains and open farmland. We share an entrance, otherwise the Guest Studio is very private. This space is great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. My home was built in 1810 & the Guest Studio was added onto the house in 1980. Monkton is conveniently located midway between Middlebury and Burlington.
I've enjoyed traveling as an AirBnB guest, but just started this summer (2017) hosting guests.
There's a sunny living area with TV, DVD player. There is a large bedroom with comfy queen size bed. The bathroom has a shower. The kitchen is used for storage of my catering supplies & equipment, but guests have use of the full sized fridge and stove. There is coffee & coffee maker in the kitchen. I provide basic place settings and have some condiments in the fridge for your use. July to mid October there are fresh raspberries from my garden for guests to enjoy.

Guests can store their bikes in the small barn and may use my bikes (smallish frames). I have an inground pool, altho the pool season is pretty short in Vermont, open mid June thru mid September. Not heated but nice.

My home is on one acre, with flower and veggie gardens. Monkton is a small town; my house is adjacent to a general store, but this village is pretty quiet. I have a cat (Bernie) and a dog (Lulu)- they are in my part of the house and may be roaming in the yard, My dog Lulu may greet you with gentle enthusiasm. My cat doesn't like anyone :)
No smoking inside or out. Quiet after 11pm. No additional guests other than those who have reserved.
As a host here in Vermont, I know that my location has much to offer. I can offer suggestions for scenic drives, bike rides, favorite restaurants, hikes and ski areas- or will let you discover on your own- whatever your preference. Every season, there's so much to love about Vermont.
I enjoy gardening, hiking, cooking and wines.
-As a guest in your home, I am quiet yet sociable- Never out too late. Conscientious- and respectful of your space.
