Swedish-Inspired Extended Stay
Close to Jay Peak in Downtown Newport, Vermont
Vita Huset, “The White House,” offers comfortable extended-stay apartment accommodations for vacationing and business travelers alike.
Phillip and I love to share our 1880’s home which has been divided into four discreet apartments. We live in one and rent the others to travelers staying four days or longer. The longer you stay, the better the rate, including monthly.
After traveling in Sweden and discovering Swedish roots, I fell in love with the “lagom” of the Swedish Gustavian style. Each apartment has this bright and serene feel and is designed with your comfort in mind. Vita Huset’s downtown location is a short walk to Newport’s restaurants, shopping, and the beautiful Lake Memphremagog.
Guests will be treated to refinished floors, Oriental rugs, abundant lighting through windows restored to their century-old beauty, and open-air porches shaded by a historic red oak tree (the second largest on record in northern Vermont and the reason I fell in love with this house!) All apartments are self-catering. Free Wifi and on-site parking is available, in addition to a common, complimentary laundry room.
Since we live on site, we are available to assist you and make suggestions to help you make the most of your time visiting the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
Vita Huset invites guests for a minimum stay of four days (four to seven days are at the same weekly rate). Monthly rates/seasonal rentals (for summer fun and skiing) may be negotiable. Small (toy breeds) adult dogs may be allowed for an additional fee of $75 per week (please check out our pet policy and call for pre-screening.) 9% VT sales tax added to all stays fewer than 30 days. Cleaning fees are waived if the apartment is left in the clean condition in which it is rented. See our policy here.
We are usually here to greet you at check-in between 4-8 p.m. but can arrange self check-in 24 hours a day as long as you give us advance notice. Check-out is at 11 a.m.
Vita Huset is a non-smoking property.
We hope to see you soon!
