Об этом жилье
Charming, quiet 2nd-floor 1BD apt w/ large deck overlooks Lake Champlain (thru the trees in summer). Quiet 'hood, steps from Red Rocks Park & Beach, near Bike Path, 8 min to downtown Burlington. Queen bed + couch/airbed, on-site parking, amenities!
This is a highly coveted location in Queen City Park, a quiet, safe lakeside neighborhood just minutes from the localvore and nightlife capital of Vermont, Burlington. The space is cozy, comfortable and charming, with a 21'X12' deck with lake views for relaxing and dining, large bedroom with queen-size wrought iron bed, full-size kitchen and separate dining area, and large living room with a couch suitable for sleeping. Simply, beautifully furnished for utility and comfort. NOTE! Doorways in this second-floor space are 6 feet high -- if you are taller than 6 feet you will need to duck under doorways and in the shower, which has a slanted ceiling.
Guests have access to the entire apartment, including a large deck, all kitchen appliances including a coffee maker. The downstairs porch is NOT part of the property and should not be used other than to get upstairs. Please do not leave bikes or any items on the porch or in front of the house -- bring them up to the deck or lock bikes on the rack in the green next door to apartment. There is access to Red Rocks Beach via the steps at the end of Lyons Avenue, and a foot path to Red Rocks Park at the end of Pavilion Avenue, off Lyons.
Общение с гостями
I will try to be available at the time of check-in to acquaint guests with the area and amenities and I may check in on the space (and my cat) occasionally, but I will NOT be staying on-site during the guests' stay.
Другие важные подробности
I have a black cat named Shakti who sometimes travels with me and sometimes stays home to keep an eye on my guests. He is super-friendly and a cuddler. Because this is his home, he will expect to go in and out as he pleases, and I prefer that he is inside at night. In the summer, he may choose to stay outside at night and generally sleeps on the porch downstairs when I am not home. It's likely he will try to snuggle with you in bed, but you can just say no to his overtures. Please offer him respect and kindness. YOU MUST BE A CAT LOVER TO STAY HERE! Thank you!
Parking in the lot on Lyons Avenue is for residents and guests only, so please park only in the designated spot and if anyone asks who you are, just tell them you are my guest.

I expect and appreciate that my home be treated with respect! The neighborhood is small and quiet, with neighbors downstairs and close by, so discretion is necessary. No loud music or excessive noise after 10 p.m. please. No parties. Absolutely no smoking in the apartment. Sorry, no pets -- I love them, but that opens up a whole can of worms -- plus, I have a cat (see above). Food in the fridge and cupboards is NOT for guests, unless we have an agreement, but feel free to make use of condiments such as salt & pepper. I try to have coffee, tea, sweetener, and half-and-half available for guests. And there is Pure Vermont Maple Syrup in the fridge, hand-made in small batches the old-fashioned way by my dear 87-year-old dad! Thank you for respecting these guidelines.
I am a freelance science writer with a passion for mantra music and bhakti yoga, a form of yoga involving kirtan (call-and-response chanting). My home reflects my passions. I am generally easy-going, friendly and flexible -- definitely a glass-half-full kind of person. Positive vibes are realllllly important to me. I have a sweet, spunky cat, Shakti, who sometimes travels with me, but if you're lucky he will stay home and be your host!
