About Jessica Lacroix
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.
Jessica Lacroix purchased this House in 1998
Why Jessica Lacroix chose Shelburne
We originally chose to purchase this house because of the neighborhood. It is quiet and perfect for children. Our kids were able to walk to school... safely.
What makes this House unique
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).

Perfect house for a group in an ideal location
This house was a perfect base for our group of 4 adults and 3 children. Lots of sights nearby, plenty of indoor space, and playgrounds within walking distance.
Clean, cozy and comfortable
The house was roomy enough for 5 adults. Multiple table and chairs to enjoy all the board games that were available. The screened in porch was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors! The kitchen was well stocked with glasses, wine glasses, plates, bowls, silverware etc.. The pool room was awesome. Jessica was more than happy to share the best places to visit and eat (there are is also a rack filled with brochures). We would definitely recommend this property for your vacation!!!
Wonderful home in a beautiful setting
This was our second stay at Jessica and Simon's home and it was just as enjoyable as our previous visit. The home had everything we needed to relax after a busy day enjoying the Shelburne museum or a swim at the town beach. The listing is very accurate, and the home is well-maintained. The owners were accessible to answer questions, and we would definitely recommend this rental and hope to return again.
Quiet, comfortable, in an ideal location!
We have been here many years for a family reunion, and always have a wonderful stay. We spend a lot of time on the screened in porch, and we've also enjoyed roasting marshmallows on the fire pit in the back yard. Shelburne is a terrific spot for a vacation, with bike trails, hiking, Shelburne Beach, Shelburne farms, and Shelburne museum close by. We walked up the country store for creemes and to go to the local farmers' market. This is a terrific location.
Cozy, Comfortable and Kind
We shared this Home for our Family reunion. With all the cooperative efforts from the owner, it felt like renting from a friend. Their home had all the extras needed for us and everything was in working order. The location was perfect for us with small children, and close enough to the charming Burlington affairs for the adults. Nice quiet neighborhood!
Our Family will definitely use this home again on our next trip to Burlington.
Wonderful place for a family gathering
Our family of 7 spent a week in this wonderful house in Shelburne for UVM graduation last week. The house was all we hoped for - well stocked, clean, close to everything and room for everyone to spread out. Jessica was wonderful and quick to respond to inquiries. I would recommend this as a quiet get away that is still close to the Burlington action.
Our house is conveniently located near Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Museum, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, and Magic Hat Brewery. We are located in a very quiet part of Shelburne, perfect for families with kids. We have a playground within walking distance. The center of Shelburne (shops, restaurants, bars) is one mile away, and downtown Burlington is only 20 minutes away. Lake Champlain is one mile from our house
