About Sharon Fortune
We bought this house when it was a run down dilapidated old farmhouse, it is over a hundred fifty years old. During the last 30+ years we have completely rebuilt the house, adding a barn and maple sugarhouse and most recently a large addition including our vacation rental apartment on the second floor of the new structure. We are retired teachers who raised our children here. Our kids attended the Elmore One Room School, the only one room school remaining today in Vermont! Brent works the land cutting hay, producing maple syrup, and growing vegetables, berries and flowers. We raise chickens and have a few beef cattle. We love our farmstead in quiet, beautiful Lake Elmore!
Sharon Fortune purchased this Apartment in 1980
Why Sharon Fortune chose Lake Elmore
The house was originally purchased with a small amount of land, then subsequently we bought the remaining 34+ acres which surround our home. We are on a quiet, dead end town road which affords beautiful views and privacy, yet we are very close to Elmore village, the state park and lake.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location of our farmstead is so beautiful, with meadow, mountain and lake views. Every season affords its own beauty. The views from the deck in the apartment are breathtaking. Our location is ideal as we are close to Stowe and Montpelier and only an hour from Burlington.

Great stay in VT
Great apartment. Owners built the beautiful apartment themselves and have provided it with everything necessary for a great vacation. The apartment is perfect for a small group or a family, overall a wonderful experience!
Glad you enjoyed your stay with us!
A perfect getaway
We can't recommend Sharon and this gorgeous farm more! A small group of us went to Stowe for a birthday ski weekend and couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay. Short drive to Stowe and all the restaurants/breweries in the area. The kitchen is fully equipped and the apartment was immaculate.
Be sure to purchase the Jam/Syrup they make on the farm!!
We are so glad you enjoyed our property and that you had a great stay here. Have a good remainder of the winter!
Clean, Comfortable and Quiet
Sharon and Brent were great hosts. Their apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had everything we needed for our week long stay. The fall foliage was near its peak. From the deck, we had a great view of the mountains, Lake Elmore, and the cows grazing near the apartment. The location was perfect for taking scenic day trips to historical sites in the area: Fort Ticonderoga, Shelburne Museum, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and the Calvin Coolidge Homestead.
Beautiful, peaceful, quiet, yet close to everything. The perfect place to stay!
My wife and I, along with our 2 year old absolutely loved everything about this place. Don’t waste money on a hotel when you can stay in a beautiful place like this and have a whole cabin/apartment all to yourself! This was a great place to come back to and relax after spending our days in Stowe, Waterbury and Burlington. Sharon and Brent are great hosts! They are very helpful and hospitable, making sure you have everything you need and are comfortable for the length of your stay. We were welcomed with awesome homemade maple syrup and raspberry jam made by Brent and Sharon! They make you feel as if the whole propery is yours to enjoy at your leisure. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking to explore Vermont. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!
So glad you enjoyed your visit to Vermont and your stay in our apartment. You are welcome back anytime! Have a great fall and upcoming holiday season.
We were a group of four adults and an infant staying at Sharon and Brent's lovely home. Their apartment was bright and spacious and had everything we needed. The views from every room are beautiful- I imagine the views would be splendid no matter the season. If you are visiting in time for labor day- the deck has a fantastic view of the fireworks!
Sharon & Brent- thank you for your hospitality. We hope to visit again!
A perfect vacation for all activities!
We had a wonderful stay with Sharon and Brent. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We brought our two small children who enjoyed their tree swing, sandbox, the tractors, and beautiful gardens. We ate dinner out on the picnic table by the cows overlooking the mountains and the lake. Perfect location to the lake and hiking trails. Sharon and Brent are friendly and welcoming hosts, even left us homemade maple syrup and raspberry jam.
We enjoyed having you and your children stay in our apartment and are glad you enjoyed your visit here! Hope you have a great fall.
We are 20 minutes from Stowe and have a lake and state park within walking distance of our rental unit. Downhill, Cross Country skiing and snowmobiling are great winter activities. The lake provides much summer fun including swimming, use of canoes, kayaks and paddleboats. Hiking and walking trails abound. Many cultural and arts events are within an easy drive.
