We had never thought of visiting Vermont but when friends told us how much they love it, we decided to tag along on the trip. We stayed for 2 nights in the en suite room in the house and had a brilliant time. Sitting in the sun in the beautiful garden, with the fabulous view, sipping a glass of wine and chilling out are some of my happiest memories and I'll take them with me always.
Maggie was a great hostess, welcoming but not overbearing, and went out of her way to accommodate our dietary needs and provided a fabulous breakfast. The short walk into the fabulous town of Burlington provided a bit of exercise when we could tear ourselves away from the garden.
After a long journey from the UK, I can't imagine a better place to recover.
Reading some of the other review posts, and understanding that every person has different expectations, I would like to write that my wife and I had a spectacular time last year at One of a Kind. We were in the small cottage for a number of days, and friends of ours stayed in the two-room for a night or two. We visit Vermont once or twice a year if we can, we have been Trapp Lodge time share holders for years, we've stayed at the Marriot, some places like that where people who want spa-like pampering might want to look. What One of a Kind has is a beautiful, unsurpassed garden view of the lake where we relaxed and drank wine with friends, privacy, an easy walk to Burlington, one of our favorite cities, and a low-key, no hassle, super-friendly vibe. We are vegan and our special request breakfasts were accomodated splendidly. We will be back, we only wish it could be soon!
I have stayed at One of a Kind B&B several times, both in the main house and in the cottage. It's a fabulous way to have the conveniences of being in town with the spectacular view of the Lake and mountains. Maggie is a great inn-keeper. We jokingly call her The Contessa of Comfort. She attends to details that make staying there wonderful: fresh home-roasted coffee, lots of art work, whimsical decor, a great breakfast spread each morning (when staying in the main house), and her warm and friendly presence. She can be helpful when you need local advice or a friendly chat, or respectful of your privacy if you'd rather be on your own.
I have read other reviews in which people were unhappy with some aspects of their stay at One of a Kind, and I believe that these complaints were about personal preferences that might have been avoided had the guests reviewed the details of the B&B before staying there. I love the antique and retro lawn chairs and little tables. I love making my own coffee so that it's fresh when I'm ready to drink it. Although the cottage is small, it is rare in Burlington to find a rental where you have your own private space. It is very reasonably priced compared to the other B&Bs in the area (I've stayed in most of them, so I know from personal experience). This is an older house that has been very tastefully and artistically renovated with a lot of character. If you're looking for a grand Victorian mansion that's been renovated and has central air conditioning you should look elsewhere, but if you want a truly unique and artistic experience, stay at One of a Kind.
As with a previous reviewer,we found that the web site gave an inaccurate image of the "cottage" for the price, and that it is in reality very cramped converted garage.Despite rustic appeal, the concrete floor, small double bed, no dining space, no bath, only shower not at all inviting to stay in, particularly if the weather is poor. The owner has made a virtue out of rusticity ie no TV, or radio and we didn't see any sign of air conditioning or heating..We had an inhibited dinner perched on our laps (no dining table or umbrella for shade) outside in the garden which although lovely with beautiful views not relaxing as the owner insensitively continued with her garden bee around us.
We left very early next morning after poor sleep feeling well and truly duly conned by the artiste.

I must admit my heart sank when we pulled up to this place. The rather steep price of our cottage led me to expect the stately old house of most bed and breakfasts in my experience. One of a Kind is a very unremarkable suburban house. The cottage is actually a converted garage. The view of Lake Champlain is spectacular, and the gardens are lovely. I would have felt I'd gotten my money's worth if the innkeeper had made a little more effort to make us feel welcome and cared for. The website touts an assortment of locally-made foods and artisan breads, with a picture of a tempting spread with fruit and cheese. We stayed for three days and got nothing but granola, yogurt and a box of Tropicana. The fresh ground coffee at least was good, but if you stay in the cabin you have to brew it up yourself. Also, I missed the touches of luxury I've come to expect when I stay at a B&B, like down pillows! We got cheap foam. Outdoor furniture is set up to enjoy the view, but it's mostly lawn sale castoffs, uncomfortable chairs with rickety little tables. I'm all for recycling and reuse, but the innkeeper might want to consider investing in her guest's comfort at these prices.
No air conditioning either, which would have been fine except for the fact that there was a heat wave through our entire stay. The innkeeper seemed affronted when I told her the ceiling fan wasn't helping much. I'll try elsewhere on my next visit.
Just a quick walk to downtown - Incredible view overlooking the lake. And incredible food! We had a small, intimate wedding in the backyard and it was unforgettable. We were on our way from Montreal to NYC with a stop over in Burlington - and ended up staying in Burlington.
