Shelburne house description

This 2100 ft² home has four bedrooms, 2½ baths, wood-burning fireplace, large screened-in back porch with new furniture and dining area, private wooded back yard, new BBQ grill, outside fire pit, recreation room with full size pool table, cable TV and wireless internet. The entire house is available for $2,000/week (plus 9% rooms tax). Shorter stays are sometimes possible--please call 802-363-9771 for more details.

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 attractions include the world-renowned Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, and the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. There are 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, and bikes available for rent.

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 provide rental bikes and bike tours 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.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      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).
