Shelburne is the perfect home base for your visit to the Burlington and Lake Champlain region. Our fantastic house is located in a very quiet neighborhood away from all traffic. We are less than 1 mile from the charming village of Shelburne; 15 minutes from downtown Burlington and the airport; and 45 minutes to the closest ski resort.

Shelburne has many claims-to-fame, including the world-renowned Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, and the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. It also boasts several outstanding restaurants, art galleries, a wine & coffee shop, bookstore, toy store, and a quintessential Vermont country store. Naturally we also have a neighborhood supermarket, library, and good public transportation.

In the warmer months there are numerous outdoor activities to choose from: the public tennis court and playground is located two blocks away, and just three blocks away is the beginning of fantastic hiking trail that leads down to Lake Champlain. Great hiking trails can also be found at Shelburne Farms and Mt. Philo. The biking is also great in this region, and we operate organized bike tours/vacations out of our rental property (see Great Bike Tours at www.greatbiketours.com). Many folks also come to Shelburne for the fine boating on Lake Champlain. In the winter we serve as a cozy New England getaway. There are numerous opportunities for snowshoeing, x-country skiing, and sleigh rides, and the ski resorts are a mere 45-minute drive away.

                                I arrived first, late at night, expecting to feel a little strange and perhaps lonely all by myself for a day before some of the other guests started to arrive. But to my surprise and delight, I felt warmly embraced by a home! Though this is a rental, it feels like a home, and I had no sense of being in a strange place. It was clean and warm, the bedrooms all appointed with clean towels and a crystal water glass on each nightstand. (The water itself tasted great!) We ended up being 8 people, very comfortably ensconced, using all of the beds and also the futon in the game room. The futon was very comfortable! The kitchen very complete with everything we would need. We were out most of the time with wedding business and parties, but this place was a refuge in between, and provided sweet talking spaces in the kitchen and living room, breakfast around the dining table. The wifi was an excellent benefit also, reaching all over the house, including the farthest bedroom. We chose this house for it's closeness to Shelburne Farms which was where the wedding would take place. An incredibly beautiful piece of land on the shore of Lake Champlain, with miles of lovely trails for hiking. And on the day after, some of us took in the museum in Shelburne, which is amazing! They were having a Wyeth exhibit, with all three of the Wyeths included, NC, his son Andrew and grandson James. Also included on the museum grounds are so many historical exhibits that we couldn't take them all in! We did however peruse the grand old ferry boat, stepping into an era of elegant travel. Rent this place! You will not be disappointed.

                                Perfect property and location in Shelburne for our family of 5 (mother-in-law and two grown children) who reunited together for a wedding nearby on beautiful Lake Champlain and brunch at the Inn at Shelburne Farms just down the road. Our hosts, Jessica and Simon, were exceptional in meeting all our needs and requests and making us feel warmly welcomed to their cozy home in the quiet woods. Family memories were made playing board games and pool; roasting marshmallows and making s'mores in the backyard; and hanging out in our family favorite place to congregate - the spectacular and spacious screened porch! The home was perfect as pictured and so very convenient for us to all Shelburne attractions and nearby Burlington. We even had time for apple picking and cider donuts at close by Shelburne Orchards; viewing the Wyeth Vertigo exhibit at Shelburne Museum; running/walking the Island Line Rail Trail along the lake; shopping and eating at vibrant Church Street Marketplace downtown South Burlington (faves were Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Skinny Pancake and Burlington Bay Cafe (breathtaking view of the bay and waterfront walk). Highly recommend this home away from home when visiting the beautiful Champlain Valley!

                                We looked at the house last summer before our stay and realized it would fit our expectations. We wanted to be closer to Burlington but Route 7 made it easily acessible. THe house was very comfortable. We stayed on the porch most of the time which was the best feature of the house. It is a beautiful neighborhood and we took walks to Shelburne Farms in the morning. I would recomend this house for anyone visiting the Champlain Valley.

                                What a perfect place for our family to come together for Christmas. The owners added to our celebration by having the home tastefully decorated complete with a Christmas tree. The home was accurately described in every way and is very close to Burlington where there is much to see and do. The owners were more than helpful in the entire transaction, including mailing me the laptop that I had left behind. They answered all questions promptly and kept in contact for any needs we had. I would highly recommend this home. It was just what we had hoped for to create new family memories. We will remember board games by the fireplace, cooking and baking in the well stocked kitchen, and even our trek in the snow to the local country store. This was my first time renting a private home and it met every expectation.

                                Could not have had a nicer, more pleasant stay. My wife and I and our 5 month old son were joined by our close family (8 adults total) for a week's relaxation and to attend a family wedding at Shelburne Farms. The home was comfortable, clean, spacious and with all the necessary amenities. The screened in porch and the grill and fire pit saw a lot of use during our stay! The owners are quite friendly and were very flexible/accommodating to our needs. Shelburne itself has a lot to offer -- we were quite pleasantly surprised at the Shelburne Museum (not at all expecting to find this caliber of cultural institution in such a small town), and we also took advantage of nearby hiking trails. Highly recommended!

                                My family group of 8 adults had a great stay here in late August. We were pleasantly surprised that the house is in a residential neighborhood, about a minute off Route 7, yet private and quiet. There was plenty of room and the porch is especially nice, large enough to hold all of us comfortably (as was the house) for games and conversation in the evening. Burlington is nearby, as is plenty of shopping and some really good pizza places and breweries. Willie the cat is perfect - friendly but not at all pushy, as one member of our group is not fond of cats but he was no problem, and the rest of us enjoyed him a lot. A great place in a great location.

                                Our triathlon team went up to Vermont to compete in triathlon nationals, and were looking to rent a 'team house'. We had a very comfortable stay in this home, and were very pleased with the accommodations. Jessica was really helpful in facilitating our stay, and was quick to respond with all orders of business, including the refund of our security deposit. The town of Shelburne was small but nice, and Burlington was an easy 15-20 minute drive.

                                This rental truly had everything we needed for our family of five (plus the addition of three extended family members during the last two nights of the trip), and the town of Shelburne also far exceeded our expectations as a vacation spot. As for the house itself, we loved having so much space to spread out. For example, there were four full bedrooms (including a private bath for the master) and also a futon in the pool table room as an extra sleeping spot. Also, we found that there were lots of great spots for hanging out: the living room (with a TV and DVD player plus fireplace), the beautiful screened-in porch, the pool table room and the backyard with a firepit. There are several dining spaces in the house: the kitchen table, the dining room area (in the living room) and some small tables on the porch. Our kids loved making s'mores around the firepit and playing in the large, flat backyard and wooded area. Each room had an a/c unit, which was helpful during the heat wave of our vacation (98 degrees in Vermont!) Jessica and Simon were great hosts, even though we never met them during our stay. (They were out of town that week but had a friend help us get settled in the house.) Both Simon and Jessica were readily available by email and phone both before, during and after our stay. They made a real effort to be accommodating. We also loved that they created a large display of brochures and magazines focused on area activities and attractions. The final thing to mention is that the town of Shelburne had way more to offer than we had imagined. The Shelburne Museum was truly spectacular, and all three of our kids loved it. We spent two afternoons there and didn't even cover everything. We also loved visiting Shelburne Farms (amazing!), the Shelburne Inn, Vt Teddy Bear Factory, the Saturday Farmers' Market, the thoroughly charming general store, the playgrounds up the street and some fantastic restaurants. We never even got to the lake, and we also didn't get a chance to go berry picking, check out the Maritime Museum, etc. This is a wonderful area of Vermont (a very short drive to Burlington, Stowe Vergennes, etc.) that doesn't feel touristy at all. Highly recommend across the board! :-)

                                Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.

                                I would absolutely recommend this property for your next vacation in the Burlington area. The home was very clean, well furnished and fully stocked with everything we needed (towels, linens, paper products, etc.) We had 2 two year olds with us and it was nice having the space to let them run around both inside and outside. The house is located very close to downtown Shelburne and right up the road from Shelburne Farms. It is a little bit of a drive from downtown Burlington and we sometimes hit traffic on Route 7. The owners made the rental process very easy and promptly returned our security deposit.

                              About the owner: Jessica and Simon have been Innkeepers in Vermont for the last several years. So even though we won't necessarily be here for your stay, we know what it takes to make your home-away-from-home super cozy and welcoming.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We have a safe and very quiet neighborhood. It is a quick 15-minute walk to the center of Shelburne with all of its fine restaurants, shops, and the famous Shelburne Museum. If you walk/cycle in the other direction (one mile away), then you'll discover the beaches of Lake Champlain along with the exquisite Shelburne Farms (also great for snowshoeing & x-country skiing in winter).
