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 Vermont

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.

A perfect vacation for all activities!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

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 wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted - peace, quiet and a beautiful view.

The apartment is beautiful and had everything that we could possibly need. The maple syrup and blackberry jam were the best that we every had. Sharon and Brent are very welcoming and we enjoyed talking with them. We will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I had a wonderful 4 day stay at Sharon & Brent's farmstead at Lake Elmore. Perched in a quiet 2nd floor apartment above the garage, we were surrounded by hay fields and several cows, with tremendous views of Elmore Lake (nice beach and State Park) and Elmore Peak (wonderful hike to the top). Quiet, comfortable, with super hosts. Ask Brent and Sharon about their garden, the vintage tractors and cars in the barn, and what it's been like to have a farm while teaching public school for 30 years! Great people, great stay! We'll see them again next year, we hope!

You Should Visit in the Summer :)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent at this peaceful farm. The owners, Sharon and Brent, could not have been more hospitable. The apt. has a stellar view of the lake, which is downhill from the farm. The homemade jam and maple syrup are a treat, and if you are lucky, you will visit on a day that Brent bakes muffins. I can't say enough good things about Sharon and Brent; they went out of their way to make our trip pleasurable. There is a fantastic restaurant/brewery a few minutes away named The Lost Nation; it's adjacent to the Lamoille River Bike Trail. You can rent a bike or two, ride for miles alongside the river:, and return to have a delicious lunch paired with the best beer you've ever tasted. There are a lot of hiking trails in this region of the country, and we were lucky enough to traverse quite a few of them. The Fire Tower Trail located in Lake Elmore's State Park (across the street from the farm) is challenging and scenic; the park's short nature trail is lovely. Not far away are many beautiful falls, and of course, Smuggler's Notch is a hiker's paradise. This vacation was one of our favorites: Did I mention the fresh cheese or the creamy ice cream created by the proud cows of local dairy farms? I would like to come again in the fall, but I am so glad that I had a chance to see Lake Elmore's abundant summertime flowers and to taste the fresh strawberries of the season. Thanks, Sharon and Brent!
