September and October are some of the most pleasant months in Vermont. The days are perfect, the Lake is still warm, the pool and/or hot tub remain open, and there are so many activities to pursue. In fact, Vermont’s world famous foliage season is at the top of many “bucket lists.” This is also a perfect time to explore back roads on bikes, taste freshly made apple pies, enjoy harvest festivals and state fairs, paddle a quiet lake or hike a mountain. For the first time, we are making the South Hero house available for get-away-weekend rentals at special rates for this fall season.
This luxurious, contemporary island house sits on the shoreline of Lake Champlain amongst 3+ acres of private grounds surrounded by trees, offering exceptional serenity and privacy (last house on a private road), and magnificent views of the lake and Green Mountains. The unique build of the house and its floor to ceiling windows allow for abundant sunlight from early morning to sundown. The outdoor deck with a 40 ft. long in-ground heated pool and hot tub for 8 people offer plenty of relaxation and entertainment. The property also benefits from a sauna, gym (equipped with Precor elliptical trainer, stationary bike and weights), WI-FI, Direct TV/flat screen TVs in most of the rooms, and full indoor/outdoor sound system.

The Town of South Hero, located in Grand Isle County in northwestern Vermont, lies on the southern half of South Hero Island in Lake Champlain. The area which now encompasses South Hero, Grand Isle, and North Hero was given to Ethan and Ira Allen on October 27, 1779 as a reward for their services to the state. The islands were originallynamed Two Hero’s Island but by 1788 they came to be called North Hero and South Hero. The first settlers, Ebenezer Allen and Alexander Gordon, came by boat in 1783. Early economic development centered around agricultural products and the harvesting of timber. Today, the lands of South Hero are used primarily for agriculture, dairying, and apple orchards. The island is a very attractive place for resorts and thus attracts many summer tourists.
The Town of South Hero shared South Hero Island with the Town of Grand Isle, which occupies the northern half
of the island. Surrounding towns on the shores of Lake Champlain include Colchester and Milton, Vermont to
the east; and Plattsburgh and Peru, New York to the west.
