Wedding in South Hero

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this beautiful property for a wedding in South Hero recently. The setting overlooked lake Champlain which was wonderfully scenic and the porch allowed everyone to relax in between events. The accommodations were perfect, the attention to detail was excellent, and the house was laid out in a way that gave everyone their own privacy when they wanted it. We mostly socialized. We recommend this place for a great stay in South Hero wholeheartedly.

Very, very nice vacation home.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have had weekly family reunions every fall for the past 20 years and this is the first time I have submitted a review.
We recently stayed at Lighthouse Estates on South Hero Island, Lake Champlain, Vt. I found the accommodations to be far superior to any I have experienced. The interior was nicely furnished, provided lots of amenities and was convenient for the entire family as well as private space when desired. The view was spectacular and the grounds were nicely landscaped and comfortably private. The home was also well stocked with complementary coffee, snacks and toiletries. Furthermore, the owner was extremely courteous and very considerate. In short, our stay at Lighthouse Estates was thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property to attend our son's College graduation in Colchester. It was an easy commute. The accommodations were all on one level, and was perfect for our group which included elderly parents. There were separate bedrooms for all in our party and plenty of bathrooms for the group to get ready at the same time. We had the perfect setting to hold a small gathering after the ceremony. The view was fabulous and we made good use of the deck and yard. The house was very clean, and had a lot of extras like Fiji bottled water, snacks and hot beverages. The Wi-Fi was very easy to connect to and we did not have any issues with internet speed. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and will not hesitate to check availability when we are in the area again.

Breath-taking View

  • 4 of 5
We fell in love with this home. It was decorated throughout in a lighthouse theme, even the books and dvd's were ocean themed. We watched some old episodes of the Love Boat, which brought back many memories. It was very clean and just overall felt welcoming. Stepping out onto the porch for the first time was absolutely breath-taking with the view of Lake Champlain and islands. The home and yard are very well taken care of and the owner was extremely helpful and cordial. The only thing I would suggest if you were planning on cooking in, you should make sure you bring any medium/large pots, pans, and bakeware that you may need and any spices you may need. There are dishes, glassware, utensils, and a few other things however we found the kitchen not very functional for main meals/dessert cooking. Overall we had a wonderful week at this lovely home. Thanks to Ilmar for his hospitality and we will definitely keep this house in mind for any future visits to the northern Vermont region, I can't tell you how beautiful and serene it is, you have to see it for yourself. :-)

Dream Vacation Estate with Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Estates. The property is magnificent with a breathtaking view of Lake Champlain and the surrounding mountains. This luxury home is meticulously maintained and elegantly decorated with charming nautical decor. From the moment we stepped inside the bright and airy, welcoming and beautiful rooms of this estate, we felt very much at home. The listing's description of the property, amenities, layout and surrounding area was excellent. The owner's attention to every detail was outstanding and his wonderful assistance in providing us with information about local places of interest was much appreciated. We greatly enjoyed the warm hospitality of everyone we met in South Hero, the gourmet meals and very friendly atmosphere of the Blue Paddle restaurant, the spectacular Sand Bar beach and other lovely beaches nearby, as well as visiting the Snow Farm Vineyard with its delicious assortments of wines.
We highly recommend this property and hope to return to it in the near future to experience again, what for us was a truly memorable dream vacation!

Whimsical Fairytale Island Hideaway...

  • 5 of 5
The season meandered on, and we mused that the nights were growing short. Another journey northward? And so we struck off on an adventure, "Hey, lets rent a house." A great big house, just he and I. And so we did.
Perusing homeaway.com, we immediately latched on to the idea of a rural hideway on a sprawl of land, preferably an island, in proximity to Burlington (our favourite city). On the site, not long into our mission, we struck gold.
Some were tiny, some provincial, some bland, some overdone. But 3015974 was just right. At some point, it was my pleasure to speak with the owner himself, a gentleman of fascinatinating demeanor and great warmth. He was pleased to inform me that he himself had decorated the entire house, with some thematic intrigue to be found within.
Indeed, upon arrival, I was taken aback at the breadth of land we had all to ourselves, the sandy driveway alluding to the fact that this too rise had once been underwater, eons ago. Type the key with trepidation, anticipation more precicely, what lied beyond? What awaited our most unusual holiday getaway?
Upon first inspection, a foyer greeted us, in lighthouse motif, a recurrent theme within that was played upon with sporadic dappling, clearly by an artist and not overdone. The tone of the property flowed from the high peaked ceilings down throught the nautically themed upholstry back up to the cupboards stocked with legions of lobster bisques and clam chowders of various varieties. As a welcome gift, our host Ilmar provided us with a charming gift of local Vermont wine and chocolates, much appreciated after the long drive! Not to mention a gift certificate to a delightful regional breakfast spot full of a colorful cast of characters.
One other aspect that impressed me... I honestly wondered if perhaps we were the first inhabitants of the space, it seemed so truly untrammeled. Ilmar laughed when I queried if this was the case, apparently we weren't, but its a testament to the skill of his caretakers that I truly believed we were the first vacationers on the property.
FYI... check out the fabulous nautically themed DVD and book collections (yes, plural). Finding these little hidden treasures were a delightful aspect of our vacation. All in all, a very well run, clever, cheerful place with privacy and the space to be a couple, or holiday with an extended family in the height of comfort with a sharp sensibility. From a very fussy consumer - this property
