Looking for a family retreat in Vermont we discovered Burke Mountain ( Claire's maiden name). We can't claim any relation to the town but our family has fully claimed this home as our happy place! We started renting out on a limited and selective basis a few years ago...seems those that have enjoyed our home have taken good care of it and made it their happy place too....

Claire Shonter purchased this house in 2003

The location is perfect.....the drive in was amazing in the winter when we first saw it....also a snow shoe walk over the property...the home is family friendly and we loved the feel of it

Near the mountain, secluded but not remote, view yet nestled in the woods....

A PLACE FOR ALL SEASONS

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in this vacation home during winter, spring, summer and fall. All have been beautful Vermont experiences. The home was a perfect place to comfortably enjoy different times of the year. Cooking was easy, as everything you need in the kitchen has been provided. Mealtimes by a bay window are easy on the eyes for everyone seated at the big dining table. Some bedrooms felt like the best of camping out and others even better but all the beds were inviting, soft, cozy spots.
What a fantastic place it was to be with my girlfriends just hanging out, hiking or venturing out to see the sights in Burke and quaint little nearby towns! There well lots of restaurant and the country festivals were really cool. We were delighted by the magnificent fall colors and waking one morning to the surprise of an early snowfall glistening in the sunshine.
Our family stay in winter was terrific. The kids played outside in the safe backyard which had just enough of a hill to make it fun. Unfortunately or not, I had the sniffles so I stayed in. It seemed like a blessing because I curled up in the warm den on a soft couch with a book and a lovely view when I wasn't reading or dozing. The best snow and a really great mountain that's used to practice by the U.S. ski team thrilled the rest of the family all day long.
Anyway, you get the idea so I won't go into what the other seasons and home offer.

FALL FUN

  • 5 of 5
Our book club has stayed at this lovely home for several annual fall "long weekends." Traveling many miles by plane, all 9 of us have enjoyed the warmth and livability of this home which allows for as much privacy "or not" as desired by any group. I simply must comment on the comfort of the beds and pillows. Definitely 5 star hotel quality!

The home was everything we hoped for and then some. It was spotlessly clean and everything anyone could want was provided. We would highly recommend this home for your vacation dream.

Not only did we cook, we also went on outings to enjoy the surrounding towns and lovely restaurants and shops. Vermont is a beautiful place when the leaves are turning.

Hiking the many trails in the area was a big hit. We haven't spied a moose yet, but we're not giving up.

Most of all we enjoyed our campfires complete with toasted marshmallows.

Oh, yes, we'll be back!
