Shelburne is the perfect home base for your visit to the Burlington and Lake Champlain region. Our fantastic house is located in a very quiet neighborhood away from all traffic. We are less than 1 mile from the charming village of Shelburne; 15 minutes from downtown Burlington and the airport; and 45 minutes to the closest ski resort.
Shelburne attractions include the world-renowned Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, and the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. There are several outstanding restaurants, art galleries, a wine & coffee shop, bookstore, toy store, and a quintessential Vermont country store. Naturally we also have a neighborhood supermarket, library, and good public transportation, and bikes available for rent.
In the warmer months there are numerous outdoor activities to choose from: the public tennis court and playground is located two blocks away, and just three blocks away is the beginning of fantastic hiking trail that leads down to Lake Champlain. Great hiking trails can also be found at Shelburne Farms and Mt. Philo. The biking is also great in this region, and we provide rental bikes and bike tours out of our rental property (see Great Bike Tours at www.greatbiketours.com). Many folks also come to Shelburne for the fine boating on Lake Champlain. In the winter we serve as a cozy New England getaway. There are numerous opportunities for snowshoeing, x-country skiing, and sleigh rides, and the ski resorts are a mere 45-minute drive away.
