About Julia Volodina

I am a portrait artist, who likes to remodel houses.

Julia Volodina purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Julia Volodina chose World

This property used to belong to the Father of American Contract Bridge, Ely Culbertson. It was his last property where he wrote books about world peace. He was a fascinating person, who lived many lives.

What makes this apartment unique

The house has advantages of both worlds: being in the forest and the same time not far from everything that the area can offer. It is quiet and private, and located next to the woods where there are extensive hiking trails.

Very Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this cute studio apartment, perfect for two people. Everything was very clean when we arrived. The owner showed us around and was very accommodating. Appliances all worked well. Location is perfect for exploring Brattleboro and all the small towns in that area of Vermont; close to I-91, and just off state Rte 9. Highly recommend this property!

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

The studio/cottage is an attractive and comfortable space. The location is ideal – just a few minutes from downtown Brattleboro and right next to Saturday’s glorious farmer’s market. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans, etc., and the bathroom was fine, though a new mat for the floor wouldn’t be a bad thing to get. There was adequate storage space (drawers, closet), so that we could empty our suitcases – not something to take for granted! And good reading lights on both sides of the bed - a feature missing from many pricey hotels! The garden is beautiful. The Wifi worked well.

The August week was unusually hot and humid, but with the window a/c, the space was comfortable. A good fan is also available.

Our major reservation has to do with seating for eating – there’s no dining table inside (though there is a glass table just outside the front door), just an island with a counter that is much too high for comfortable eating. Also, the driveway has some remarkable potholes that should be filled. Since it’s shared with another property, this might not be Culbertson’s responsibility, but someone should take care of it.

Julia was welcoming and very helpful – directing us, for example, to the perfect swimming hole about five miles away.

Ours was a happy stay at Culbertson House.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review and comments. You're absolutely right about the "remarkable" potholes!! It is not actually on our property so there's not that much we can do, unfortunately, though we are certainly working on a solution. We hope that for your next visit to the Culbertson House the road will be nice and smooth! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and take care! Julia & David

Indeed Charming

  • 4 of 5

Thanks, Julia for sharing your lovely apartment with us. We enjoyed the accommodations and the fabulous gardens! We've been to Brattleboro before but it was more fun to be in such a convenient and comfortable apartment! I can't recommend it enough!!

The whole process was problem-free. Julia met us and gave us the tour and let us be (which was our preference). When we crossed paths later, she was gracious enough to talk about the house and the extensive gardens.

We'll be back...

One of best vacation that I ever had

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend went to this cozy place right after New Year for 3 days. Julia an her husband was very friendly and nice people. This place was really far from our NY fuss and in the heart of nature which I miss for a long time. The house is very original and even has his own great history. We enjoy every minute which we spend there. Thanks for awesome vacation.

Not quite what we expected

  • 3 of 5

I envisioned a place to get away from hustle and bustle in a cozy studio. It was very close to the main road and Interstate 91, so easy to get to, but no view of VT countryside. The room was cozy nice and warm, but not particularly clean; it had a lovely fireplace, but the wood was "green" so it did not burn. The bathroom is very small, as is the shower and toilet area. The shower/tub could perhaps use a curved shower bar to give bathers a sense of a greater space.The drapes need attention, as some were falling off their strings or nails, and I would invest in a new couch, for cleanliness and comfort. The bed however was VERY comfortable and the sheets were clean. The owner was lovely, giving us a tour and some local information.

Lovely Forest setting close to Brattelboro

Thanks for a great week. Culbertson House made an excellent base to explore the area. Julia and David were very hospitable and couldn't be more welcoming on our first trip to the USA
