Photos and Description of this Manchester Village holiday cottage

A perfect one bedroom getaway steps away from downtown Manchester VT

Tucked In is a 720 sq.ft. well appointed cottage with all the amenities you'd expect in a first class hotel. It is all on one level with a fully equipped kitchen, dreamy king size bed and a luxurious bathroom with a spa shower. Bathrobes are provided and the floors have radiant heat to maximize the guest experience. The cottage has WiFi and premium cable. Tucked In is set on a half acre with a patio just through the french doors and further into the garden is a fire pit and a hot tub for your enjoyment. I reside in the main house on the property and can offer any and all advice. Parking is on premises. Follow on Instagram @tuckedinvt

About Joan Burns

I moved here from Westchester County, NY in 2012. I lived in that area for over 40 years. During 5 of those years I was an innkeeper in the Bahamas as welI as St. Croix. I grew up coming here, almost moved here a couple of different times and in 2012, I decided to make the move. I bought this property and completely renovated it the first year I was here. At the beginning of this year set out to create Tucked In. It is brand new and I'm excited to be back in the hospitality business. I had the pleasure of staying there over this past Christmas and I have to say, it was divine. My whole family was in my house and I had my escape. I love Manchester and I look forward to hosting you here in my new hometown.

Joan Burns purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Joan Burns chose Manchester

I looked for a long time and there was something about this house and where it sat. I didn't want to be in the middle of nowhere so this was the perfect solution. My house was built in 1895 and it was built beautifully. It was in desperate need of love and that's what it got. It took some time and a little bit of aggravation but in the end, it is magnificent and stands proudly in the center of town. A neighbor across the street described it as 'shiny'

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits are its proximity to everything in town, the luxurious amenities in the cottage, and the comparably affordable nightly rate!

Superior rental, nearly perfect

  • 5 of 5

A superior rental, nearly perfect. We are a couple who spent 5 nights here in mid-October and were very comfortable. Despite its small overall footprint, the open plan kitchen, dining, and living room area is quite spacious for a party of 2, as are the bedroom, bathroom, and storage spaces.The kitchen, dining, and living room area was full of light during the day time, with 4 sky lights, windows on 3 sides, and French doors to the garden, patio, hot tub, and fire pit.

Immaculate and beautifully decorated and furnished, inside and out. Excellent SONY flat screen TV, with cable service. Well equipped kitchen, with more than adequate appliances and kitchenware for 2. No dishwasher, but 2 people don't generate that many dirty dishes. Luxurious bathrobes and towels. Excellent, comfortably firm bed. Nice, warm floors with radiant heat.

Centrally located for easy access to restaurants, supermarkets, craft shops, outlet stores, Mt. Equinox, Southern Vermont Arts Center, hiking, biking, and scenic drives. Off street parking.

A couple of minor quibbles to be aware of, but nothing that would make us hesitate in the slightest about staying here again. There is no washing machine or dryer, which might be a consideration if you are planning a lengthier stay. And the dining area, wonderfully bright during the day, is somewhat dark after sundown. (Joanie provided us with an extra lamp that solved that issue.)

Thanks Joanie for a great stay. We look forward to visiting again when we are next in the area.

Cozy, luxurious cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very well appointed cottage walking distance to everything in town. Felt very modern in an appealing, clean way, and still very cozy and comfortable. The hot tub was an incredible source of relaxation. We came for a wedding and found ourselves not wanting to leave the cottage. Grateful for this stay and hope to be back!

Great location, extremely comfortable and perfect if you want to self-cater

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well situated near to the center of Manchester, the king bed very comfortable, the shower wonderful!

We were there for a week and enjoyed driving out and about, having lunch out and then a simple dinner in while watching TV.

Highly recommend.

p.s. also loved the 2 doggies (Tulip and Rhododendron) who would come out to say hello as we were missing our 2 doggies back in the UK.

Tucked In is a beautifullyappointed, modern, cozy cottage in an excellent location in Manchester, Vt

  • 5 of 5

We just spent three wonderful weeks at Tucked In. The cottage comes equipped with lots of modern amenities including a Keurig coffee maker. The decor is soothing and cozy. The kitchen is equipped to allow for the occasional home meal. The bathroom has a spa shower, hairdryer, and lush towels. Tucked In robes are also provided. The bedroom has a king size bed and has air conditioning. The living area is comfy with plenty of seating and cable T.V. and WiFi. French doors open to an inviting courtyard and hot tub.

The location is wonderful and conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, banking and salons.

Joanie, the owner is available when needed and very accommodating.
