“A Wonderful Bed and Breakfast. It is hard to describe what fine hosts Alisha and Tim are. Let me make a few observations from our recent stay. This is a meticulously maintained and spotlessly clean 200 year old farm house with beautiful landscaping, peaceful acreage and river frontage. Whether it is watching sunset from the dock, savoring breakfast on the screened in porch, relaxing in the upstairs parlor and enjoying the lovely guest rooms or sharing a bottle of wine with other guests and the hosts; this place is just wonderful. A couple of surprises. The location is even better than advertised. While it has all of the charm of a Vermont farm experience, it is 3 minutes from the interstate and one exit away from all that the Burlington area has to offer. The Secret Passage is perfect for a parents visit to St. Michael's College or UVM and ideal for an extended family get away where you rent the entire three bedroom upstairs. Tim and Alisha have created a perfect spot for a post graduation reception or, maybe if you asked real nicely, a wedding venue. These hosts take what's possible in innkeeping to a whole different level. They elevate it from a job to a calling. Stay at Secret Passage before the "secret" is so well known that they are booked a year in advance.”
Located 30 minutes from beautiful Burlington, just under 30 minutes from Smugglers Notch Ski Resort and 35 minutes to Bolton Ski Resort. Underhill State Park for hiking is 15 minutes away! (sunset ridge trail on Mt. Mansfield) Enjoy a bedroom and a sitting/living room. The bathroom is shared with hosts, but we are mostly downstairs and your room is upstairs. Come to VT and enjoy fall foliage, hiking, biking, swimming, ice-skating, skiing, snow shoeing or just relaxing!
“Their place is an awesome stay out in the sticks! Stars out, awesome roads to drive, lovely people and friendly pets. It was nice to have the added play room to chill in, we stayed up playing uno most of the evening! Very clean and welcoming home, would definitely stay again. Very good grocery store a 10 min walk away. We stayed one night then headed to Bolton Valley the next morning! All in an awesome trip!”
In the new covid-19 world we live in we welcome essential workers or anyone traveling for essential reasons, family, business to name a few. We will be cleaning the apartment after each visit based on cdc guidelines. We expect all travelers to be safe, this apartment is in our home. Though you have a separate entrance it still is attached. Burlington is 15-20 minutes away. Amtrak is 1 mile from our door. The airport within 10 minutes
“This place is in a great location. In a nice quiet neighborhood yet still within a few minute drive to plenty of restaurants and things you may need. The apartment is very cute. Renzo did a great job really filing the place with everything you need and may need. So you probably won’t need to run to that store for a forgotten item because Renzo probably already has backups for you. It was nice and cozy warm on our arrival. Very clean space. A great spot to end our days of snowboarding. Renzo’s instructions are clear and easy about getting into the apartment. It’s a great stay! We definitely will look to stay here again on our next trip up there.”
