Whether you stop by for one night or a week you won't forget your stay with Brian & Mayte Giubardo. Colchester, Vermont is right on beautiful Malletts Bay and our home is only a short drive to Downtown Burlington. One block from beautiful hiking, biking, walking, and snowshoeing trails!!
Welcome, Bonjour, Benvenuti, Bienvenido......Brian and Mayte welcome you to our home in Colchester, Vermont, just minutes from Burlington!
Relax in your private quarters - the lower floor of a raised ranch home with your own private entrance, family room with beautiful natural light, separate bedroom (with air conditioning) with a comfortable queen size bed and private bathroom with stand-up shower. Enjoy your own television in the family room with cable and Apple T.V. and access to Netflix and Hulu. Wireless wifi also available. We have an additional pullout for any little ones or a third guest that may be joining you on your New England adventure! Laundry facilities also available.
Enjoy a wonderful breakfast made with organic and non-GMO ingredients to start your day, including hot tea and coffee and perhaps a tasty Belgian waffle with local Vermont maple syrup! Don't feel like cooking dinner? Allow Chef Brian to cook for you and your family as this is one of our options for our guests as well as the option of utilizing our kitchen (additional rates apply).
Our home is just blocks from the Burlington Bike Path and Airport Park is a block away with easy access to hiking, biking, snowshoeing and water activities in the summer along beautiful Mallett's Bay and Lake Champlain. Boat ramp to the Winooski River is just down the street. The area becomes a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors during the autumn foliage season - "leaf peepers" welcome!
Why do we love Colchester so much? Beautiful views of both the Adirondack Mountains of New York to the West and the Green Mountains of Vermont to the East, the splendor of Lake Champlain and Mallets Bay twinkling in the sunlight, and an abundance of forests sprinkled all around. Water, mountains, and forest of pine, oak and maple in a quiet neighborhood setting while just minutes away from Burlington's faster pace. How fortunate we are to enjoy seagulls, red tail hawks, hummingbirds and cardinals all at once!
We are 1 hour away from beautiful Stowe for skiing enthusiasts and you can lose yourself enjoying the numerous small towns and rolling hills throughout the countryside of the Champlain Valley and surrounding areas. Not to mention Montreal is only less than a 2-hour drive away!
Colchester was chartered in 1763 and our home is merely minutes from Ethan Allen's Homestead as well. We are less than 15 minutes away from downtown Burlington and world famous Church Street and a perfect location for family and friends visiting students at UVM, Champlain College or St. Michaels.
We look forward to meeting you and your family in hopes of providing a true New England experience of relaxation and fun.

We recently relocated to beautiful Colchester, Vermont, after living in Flagstaff, Arizona. My wife, Mayte, and I have been fortunate enough to have lived in Chicago, New York, St. Louis, Miami, Bullhead City and Flagstaff, Arizona and now in beautiful Vermont. We have enjoyed traveling abroad to Italy, Sicily, Greece, Slovenia, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Canada, Mexico and always enjoy sharing our many adventures with guests and family.
Brian was a singer in a rock and roll band earlier in life and has continued to write and perform music to this day. Mayte holds a Masters degree in Social Work and brings her positive outlook to all those who meet her.
Food!!! We love food!! Brian is an accomplished chef and brings his Sicilian heritage into his numerous dishes and Mayte brings her Cuban and Colombian roots when cooking up black beans and rice or Cuban lechon!!
As your hosts we can make ourselves as available as you'd like or if you'd prefer privacy that is always an option.
So sit back and relax while enjoying Vermont and all of its splendor!!
