This 1 1/2 story, 140 year old caretakers cottage, in the heart of Burlington's historic Hill Section is conveniently located half way between our vibrant downtown and the 2 colleges at the top of the hill; Univ. of Vermont and Champlain College.


The house has a total of eight rooms. The first floor has four rooms and a lavatory: LR, DR, Kitchen and an enclosed porch with a couch, two folding chairs and a 32" TV. The TV has an Apple TV modem. The "TV room" is heated but can be chilly in winter. I supply a plug-in heater for supplemental heat. There is good high speed wi-fi.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs along with a small full bath. There is also 4th BR is accessible through the twin BR closet (small door with very low headroom) or via a steep back stairway. It is the slightly quirky way-back room (see photos) with a full bed and very sloped sidewalls but full head room in the center. It can be used as a 4th bedroom if you ask me before hand and I can get it ready.

PLEASE NOTE: Be aware that the tub and shower in the small bathroom is located under a sloped ceiling. A few guest have commented that it is awkward space if you are over 5'-4". I do provide a shower stool which can be used in conjunction with the hand held shower head as on option.

There may be garage parking for a small car in the summer months (if my car is gone) and there is one space in front of the garage. Street parking is also available but can be hard to find depending on the time of day, college break times and other factors.

Vermont is great for outdoor activities summer and winter. Winter activities include downhill skiing which is as near as 1/2 hour drive (Bolton Valley a great family ski area!) or an hour drive to Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen ("ski it you can.") or Smuggler's Notch. There is also xcountry skiing on the groomed, flat trails of the "interval" along the Winooski River and at the country club, both right in Burlington if the snow gods bring us enough of the white stuff.
Summer and Fall there are opportunities for hiking, sailing, swimming, biking or just strolling the waterfront and downtown.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information.

We absolutely loved Kathleen's home. It was close to the best of Burlington, and we had a place to park without having to worry about finding street psrking. The house itself was fun and cozy, filled with art and personality. It felt like home!

We loved Kathleen's house. It is a cozy place within easy walking distance of all of Burlington. It was refreshing to rent a house someone actually lives in. There was a fully supplied kitchen and all the little essentials you just need a pinch of when cooking. There were even quite a few board games we enjoyed playing. Kathleen was easy to communicate with and it was a really simple key hand off. I would highly recommend staying at the Cosy Cottage.

Despite me being hard to reach, Kathleen was so communicative and made extra sure to send us information on how to get in the house. She even welcomed us to whatever was in the fridge as she was traveling for a few days also! The home is so comfortable and I would stay again. The proximity to downtown was perfect - we walked to dinner every night and to 4th of July fireworks on the lake! The bedrooms are cozy, and the kitchen would be great to cook in - she has a professional stove. The living room, sunroom and patio provided so much living space. Our family of 4 could gather or spend time alone very comfortably - this was one of my favorite aspects. The shower is tiny! Truly difficult for tall people - my husband is 6'4", and awkward for medium height, say 5'6" or so.

Thanks Leah, I appreciate your feedback. I will think about revising the shower description. I do have the stool for use by taller people. Hope your 6'-4" husband took advantage of that. My 6 ft tall granddaughter is visiting and using it to shower. Glad you enjoyed the other aspects house.

I love the cozy cottage! This home is beyond the epitome of Vermont! Tons of character, plenty of space, and very comfortable, even in the dead of winter! Kathleen went above and beyond to make me and my guests comfortable. From the quirky notes about high temp stove (very nice by the way) to the instructions on how to use the wi-fi, everything had a personal touch, so emblimatic of Vermonter and the Vermont experience. Close to everything, spacious, comfortable, and quaint, do yourself a favor and book now, you won't regret it!!!

Thanks Erik for the great review. The 3 TV remotes are a bit complex. I will work on more explicit instructions.

We stayed in the Cosy Cottage last year and loved it so much that we stayed there again. We think that it is named incorrectly since a cottage tends to be smaller in size, but this is quite spacious. The location is absolutely perfect for our needs. It is walking distance to the University, the lake and the mall area of downtown Burlington. We walked every night and always enjoyed it. It is a great neighbourhood and it makes us feel like we are living in Burlington rather than staying in Burlington. Anytime that we are in the Burlington area, this will be the first place we look at in order to stay. Perfect for our needs, perfect location - just a great experience all around.

Thanks Don, Glad you were able to enjoy Burlington despite the lack of snow. Do come again when el niño is swinging the other way. :)

Kathleen was extremely friendly and flexible. We stayed at the house for the week before my wedding. She was extremely attentive, and wanted to make sure we had a comfortable stay in her home. The home itself was wonderful! It's the perfect sweet Burlington-style home, so comfortable -- and I particularly loved the secret bedroom!

Kathleen's place was perfect for our visit to Burlington, just a few blocks to town. The house was very cosy and had everything we required for our stay. The only thing we struggled with was the size of the shower, although didn't ruin our stay!

I am a retired landscape architect from the northern state of Vermont, USA.
I live in a 140 year old house that was once the caretakers house for a larger 1800's home nearby. I have raised 3 children in this house who are now living in the various corners of the USA. When visiting them I sometime use AirB&B to find a comfy place to stay nearby.

I spend my enjoying what Vermont and Burlington have to offer with friends, gardening and trying to keep my old house in repair.

In recent years I have been escaping the winter cold and heading to Mexico and other warmer climes happy to have Air B&B as an economical lodging alternative.
