Our 1800's farmhouse is located on the side of Burke Mountain, home to never-crowded Burke Mountain Ski Area and Burke Mountain Academy, training ground for a number of US Ski Team stand-outs. The house sits on Pinkham Road, which loops along one side of the mountain and forms a leg of Kingdom Trails, an internationally known and highly acclaimed mountain biking venue. Burke Mountain, in association with Kingdom Trails, provides lift service for bikers wishing to ride a number of challenging downhill trails during the summer months. Miles of private trails and Kingdom trails provide excellent cross country skiing and snowshoeing, some right from the farmhouse.
At the base of the mountain, quaint East Burke Village provides access to gas and groceries, as well as some of the Northeast Kingdom's finest take-out, casual and fine dining. Beautiful lakes Willoughby and Crystal and Island Pond are within a 30 minute drive. For convenience, I-91 is only 10 miles away.
The farmhouse and 140 +/- acres have been in my family for almost 100 years. It was owned first by my great grandparents. My grandfather lived there his entire life, before leaving it to my parents. My goal is to preserve the history of the farm and scenic beauty of the land and keep the property in the family. Renting the Farmhouse helps pay for those efforts.

I have always loved the rural character of our area. Recent improvements brought about by Burke Mountain and Kingdom Trails has made the entire East Burke area a destination for skiers and bikers. Our beautiful location is attractive to families, nature lovers and anyone wanting a peaceful, quiet setting still close to activities.
People who have stayed with us have pointed to the quaintness of the Farmhouse, the peace and quiet, mountain views and sunsets, as seen from the large covered porch or sitting around the fire pit, as reasons they have particularly loved staying at our Farmhouse.
Sacha, from Quebec City, commented:
We stayed at this very nice place on our mountain biking trip, super clean and charming in a very peacefull area of East Burke. We were there on the week-end of the 4th of July and even got to see fireworks from our "Fire-Pit"... very cool. Thanks for everything Ken, see you soon!
Our rental is located in the heart of what is known as the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, an area untouched by major growth or sprawl. The area retains all its natural beauty and has none of the heavy traffic, malls and industrial growth common to more populated areas. Burke is a cute little village, home to Burke Mountain Ski Area and Kingdom Trails, a premier mountain biking and cross country skiing venue. The northeast Kingdom is home to several beautiful, clean lakes, great for swimming, fishing or canoeing and kayaking. There are many great restaurants scattered about. Catamount Arts, Burke Mountain and other organizations make available a number of concerts, music festivals, art exhibits and sports exhibitions. Burke is home to the Burke Mountain Sled Dog Dash each January; and national ski races are held at the mountain. The Northeast Kingdom is well known for hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, outstanding fall foliage and maple syrup production.
