The town of Charlotte, VT was chartered in 1762 and is situated in the fertile Champlain Valley with a series of hills and ridges overlooking beautiful Lake Champlain. Charlotte, with 3500 residents, hosts a large network of working farms and forests that are flourishing from the productive Champlain Valley soils. Sugar bushes, orchards, dairies, berry farms, a winery, market gardens, livestock operations, honey houses, grain and community supported agriculture are just some of Charlotte’s flourishing enterprises. These lands also provide many of the vast scenic landscapes, community trails, Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge, and the famous Mt Philo State Park. The town is home to the small and growing villages of East and West Charlotte with corner stores, library, Grange and senior center. Charlotte residents and visitors enjoy the buzz of farm activity and the quiet Vermont countryside.
Recreational opportunities abound. Lake Champlain is a mecca of summertime life. Residents and visitors can use the town beaches for swimming and relaxing. There are boat launches for sailing, fishing, water skiing, windsurfing and other water sports. There are tennis courts, and numerous parks and trails for hiking as well spectacular roads for cycling, walking and touring. Mt Philo State Park is a short walk from the house. The area is renowned for spectacular fall foliage and is an excellent base for leaf peeping. Winter sports include snow shoeing and cross country skiing , and several of Vermont’s famous ski resorts including Stowe and Sugar bush are less than an hour’s drive.
Burlington, the state’s largest city, is home to numerous restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries, nightlife and the University of Vermont. Nearby are Shelburne Farms and the Shelburne Museum, two of Vermont’s not to be missed attractions. Middlebury is of course home to Middlebury College, one of the country’s and region’s finest liberal arts schools.
As a person who has traveled the globe extensively and has considerable experience in renting homes and properties while away, I understand the guest’s desire to have things right and make sure the experience is memorable. Most of us have limited vacation time, and when we do get away we want the experience to be easy, relaxed, and stress-free. Often the actual experience doesn’t live up to the high expectations that have been built up in advance of a trip.
Equidistant from Burlington and Middlebury, and a short drive to Lake Champlain and Vermont’s ski areas, our home in Charlotte, VT sits high on a ridge adjacent to a state park with a 180 degree southwesterly panorama looking out across Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. Our light-filled, sun-drenched three bedroom home with rare Guajuvira wood floors, custom imported lighting, and furnished with distinctive designer furniture, tasteful rugs and art provides a haven and sanctuary for the discriminating guest. We can truly say that no expense was spared in creating a luxury vacation paradise, and we welcome you to take a closer look.
