About the property

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.

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 2014 I set out to create Tucked In. It's new and I'm excited to be back in the hospitality business. 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!

Haven in the Midst of Manchester

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage to get away to and yet within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Everything in the cottage was top notch and the little garden was very relaxing. All communications with Joan were terrific. Thanks!

Wonderful stay in Manchester Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a marvelous cottage in downtown Manchester. The home is exactly as it appears in the listing. The house has great linens, wonderful new bed and mattress, modern room decor and feel. We had a wonderful week here.

The house is 6 doors from the "downtown" Manchester. We walked every morning to Northshire bookstore and cafe for coffee and a newspaper. You are walking distance to many of the stores and restaurants. Even though the house is near the town, it is quiet, set back from the street. Inside or in the yard, you hear very little street noise. We enjoyed sitting in the yard during the day.

Joan, the owner, is very attentive. We had a small issue with the grill, she got it repaired immediately. She is a pleasure to deal with.

The house is perfect for 2 people. We had a wonderful 6 nights, I highly recommend this cottage.

Sweet Cottage...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited "Tucked In" this past weekend. Very sweet cottage, nicely decorated and outfitted, with all the creature comforts! We especially enjoyed hanging outside on the little terrace in the morning with our tea and books. Within easy walking distance of everything but just outside the fray, we found the location perfect for our needs and wants. The owner was out of town while we were there, but was easily accessible if we needed her. Lovely little cottage all around...

We had a wonderful experience! The cottage is tastefully appointed and extremely cozy...plus, the location in relation to the downtown shopping/eating areas is perfect!

The Owner, Joan, was easy to work with...she was very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions we had in the booking process.

Highly recommended for a wonderful VT getaway for 2!
