North Hero chateau / country house description

We are offering a 1600 square foot, fully-decorated and updated 1850's New England 4-bedroom country home for rent. This home has recently been restored with care and much attention to historical detail. While fully equipped with all modern amenities and decorated with beautiful country collectibles, the home's location is the real attraction, whether you are seeking perfect natural tranquility and scenery, or you enjoy summer or winter recreation. Or maybe you are looking for the perfect private honeymoon getaway.

This 150-acre property backs onto beautiful Lake Champlain, which is perfect for boating, swimming or lakefront stargazing. This large private property extends from the main access road, all the way to the beautiful lake. Although tree growth has obscured the view of the lake from the house, a quick 2-minute drive or a pleasant 10-minute walk down Curtis Lane and Lake Champlain is yours to enjoy in complete privacy. You can spend hours at the dock and the 800 ft plus lakefront.

                          Year Purchased: 1935

                          About: This large and secluded property holds 75 years of memories for the owners' family. Once operated as a prosperous working farm, it was sold to the current owners (a grandchild) in 1975. From 1975-2006, the owners rented the property to Vermonters while they resided and worked in Ontario, Canada. Now in retirement, the owners have decided to make the home come alive again and have completely updated and refurbished the interior and exterior. Operating both as a family retreat and as a rental for others, the property is finally getting the attention it deserves.

                          Why North Hero:
                          Nestled in a picturesque island community, the history of the Lake Champlain islands is rich and full of folklore. There are several historical sites, museums, architectural treasures and antique shops boasting local finds. Not many vacation properties have this much to offer: mountains, water, sunsets, vineyards, farmland, historical landscapes and tradition.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                          Premium skiing locations in Quebec are less than 30 minutes away, with at least seven resort locations nearby in Northern Vermont. Or maybe you enjoy relaxing on a screened porch, taking in the famous island sunsets from the front porch, antiquing, shopping, sampling the many nearby fabulous restaurants, visiting the many museums or sightseeing on the islands... See our very detailed Attractions page on our website (http://northhero.freehostia.com/index.htm). This page provides a detailed list of all nearby activities and sites.
