Overview

About the property

Sunny 2 Bedroom 1st Flr Apt in Historic Home near VCFA and many area attractions

Come and vacation at our historic house in Montpelier, Vermont, the nation's smallest capital! Our first floor apartment is cool in the summer, and cozy and warm in winter. We are 7 buildings away from VCFA and a ten minute walk to downtown where there are wonderful restaurants, book stores, and shops to enjoy. Get a tour of the capitol building, hike in Hubbard Park, or enjoy live music in town. We are close to Vermont College green, a fun place to throw a frisbee. Many attractions and activities are a quick drive from here...hiking trails, ski areas and resorts - Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolton Valley, Trapp Family Lodge - are just 15-30 miles away!

If our calendar is full, please contact me as we have two other apartments on the property. This house can be booked for events such as weddings and family gatherings! The VRBO listings are #454402 and #971889.

About Beth Damon

I am an architect, educator, instructional designer, artist and mother of four. My son William and I live in this wonderful historic house, which is getting more and more empty as the children grow up! We would love for you to stay here and have loads of fun ideas for your visit to Vermont. This is a quiet, peaceful place and we spent most of our time painting, gardening, cooking, and being outdoors when not hard at our work.

Beth Damon purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Beth Damon chose Montpelier

Our many guests have greatly enjoyed staying here. Because we live in the back part of the house (which is very long) we are right here if there are any worries or if you need anything. Because we live very close to downtown you are able to just park your car and walk everywhere. We are even on the city bus route now! There is lots of live music downtown, and local craft beer to try, excellent restaurants, bookstores, a great library, and of course, America's smallest capital. Montpelier is bustling with fun and interesting things to do during all seasons! PLUS, we are centrally located so it is easy to take day trips all over Vermont from here. Montreal is under a 2 hour drive as well.

What makes this apartment unique

I think the most unique benefit to our house is the mixture of old house charm and modern conveniences. The house is very cozy during winter months, and we are a 15 minute drive to hiking trails, and 30-40 minutes from some of the best ski resorts in the country - Stowe, Sugarbush, Trapp Family Lodge, and Bolton Valley. Burlington is just a quick commuter bus ride away, or a 35 minute drive, and a truly vibrant college town on Lake Champlain. The capital is a really fun place to check out and we hope you'll visit us soon!

Great spot in Montpelier!

  • 5 of 5

There aren't many places to rent in Montpelier proper (which is a great town to stay in to see VT in general), and this is a real gem. Me, my husband, and my two kids (ages 4 and 7) rented the bottom floor of the house (the upper floor is also available for rent). It's cozy (the living room is also the bedroom), but it didn't feel cramped and seemed like just the right size for us. The accommodations are comfortable. Beth the owner is a wonderful hostess who put a lot of children's toys and books in the apartment which our kids really appreciated. Our friends rented the upper floor, and they brought a baby with them, and she had all kinds of baby things for them, like a pack 'n play and high chair. The house is in a nice neighborhood, close to a college (I recommend having dinner at their cafeteria; it's made by the culinary students there). It's easy to walk downtown. The only possible drawbacks for some people is that there isn't a tv (we didn't mind), and the owners live in the house that's connected (we rarely saw them -- only outside -- and never heard them), and you might have strangers living above you (you can hear some creaking above, and some muffled conversation if it's loud) and you'll share an entrance/exit with them. But these are pretty minor things; overall, this is a great pick for your Vermont stay!

Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the downstairs apartment which was very well equipped, and the beds were unusually comfortable for a vacation rental. Beth is very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again for sure!

Lovely weekend stay in Montpelier

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Beth and Bob's place in Montpelier! The home was easy to find, and was clean, cozy, and had absolutely everything we needed. It's located on a lovely, quiet street, and just a nice walk away from the downtown area.

Beth and Bob were extremely gracious and communicative hosts. Despite living only an hour away, I wasn't too familiar with downtown Montpelier, and Beth was so helpful in providing suggestions for places to visit, eat, and grab a drink. We had a great dinner at Three Penny Taproom and delicious gelato at Chill. Beth had so many wonderful suggestions that I think we'll need to make another trip back soon! :)

Homely

  • 4 of 5

We stayed only for two nights but we enjoyed every minute. Close enough to walk to downtown to restaurants and shops. Had everything you needed if you wanted to cook and very clean felt at home. She also left us some homemade cookies and a bottle of wine to enjoy you cannot ask for more.

Absolutely beautiful apartment, gorgeous garden and thoughtful host

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the downstairs apartment at 80 College for 10 days during my final residency at Vermont College of Fine Arts. It's a very short walk to the college, but also into town - it couldn't have been more convenient. The apartment was beautiful and very cosy, and Beth was incredibly welcoming, thoughtful and kind, asking us if there was anything we needed, and even offering to change our sheets for us if we needed. It's a shoes off rule inside the house which helps to keep everything clean, which is great. The garden is absolutely gorgeous - there were peonies in bloom when we were there and we were able to sit outside and enjoy a view over Montpelier and the mountains at sunset with a drink, surrounded by nature. I could not think of a better place to stay in Montpelier and would wholeheartedly recommend it.
