About Beth Damon

We are a quiet, friendly family with four children. Three are grown, and I have created this space with their bedrooms in the front part of our very large house to share with people like you. We'd love to have you stay! The apartment has a separate entrance and is completely private from our living quarters. If you have a larger group, you may want to consider renting all three apartments!

Beth Damon purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Beth Damon chose Central Vermont / Sugarbush / Mad River Valley

Our home was the Commandant's house in the Civil War Infirmary. Though it is a very historic house, dating back to the mid 1800's, it is fully restored and has all modern conveniences!

People who stay here just love it, and are able can see many sites on day trips because of its central location.

I am very particular about cleaning and the beds are extremely comfortable.

We take a lot of pride in being the best hosts imaginable!

What makes this apartment unique

Our house is on a beautiful street and centrally located. It is a ten minute walk to downtown, and quite near to Stowe and Sugarbush resorts, as well as to Burlington's airport and Lake Champlain. There is a city pool and reservoir you can bring our kayaks to. Hiking trails are 5-30 minutes away with spectacular views. There are lovely restaurants a walk away, as well as live music, and terrific bookstores and cafes.

Another fantastic rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here, and we have nothing but great things to say about the property and its owner. Beth is not just extremely responsive but incredibly proactive and a very generous host. We've stayed in both the upstairs and downstairs apartments, and we would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone traveling with young children (as we did), or without. The apartments are lovely, and you will be in the best possible hands during your stay. We can't say enough good things. We're already dreaming about our next stay!

Very lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home during my sons graduation from Norwich. The home is very centralized to all areas! We had a lovely stay. The home was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. My only suggestion would be to have a TV. Beth was very accommodating! She always returned messages answering our questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marika! We were so happy to be your choice as you visited the area for graduation at Norwich University. I will work on TV, but please know that in the future it is always easy for us to put one in place. Some of our guests ask for there to be no TV :) I think so children can spend more time exploring the area. Happy, happy summer to you and your family! Beth

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend and really enjoyed it. Beth was a great host and her home is beautiful. The location is great and very quiet. Will definitely be staying here next time I'm in Montpelier. Don't hesitate making this where you lay your head while staying in Montpelier.

Perfect Vermont Experience

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. It was BEAUTIFUL, historic, cozy, and accommodating in an extremely convenient location. Montpelier is easy to hop on the interstate from, and this home was SO close to downtown Montpelier and the charming square of the local cottage. It was a very quiet street but near the action.

Beth was an incredible hostess- Anything you could possibly want, need, or have forgotten for your trip was in that house. There were toiletries, first aid, even a lit makeup mirror and blow dyer. She was flexible, friendly, and attentive.

The beds were extremely comfortable (we slept like rocks) and the house just oozed a cozy charm. We all had our privacy and comfort despite there being 6 of us.

I would absolutely recommend this home and will likely rent it ourselves again.

-A. Rebold
