About Matt

My mom and dad loved Burke and the Northeast Kingdom. My dad was an Aeronautical Engineer at Pratt and Whitney—(A United Technologies (UTX) company). They searched for about two years for “a view”. In 1995 they located the prize property. He designed the home and construction began two years later. He designed and oversaw the construction of the house you are considering renting.

Matt purchased this house in 1990

Why Matt chose Burke

The house was built with 360 degree views. Northern winters and western winds necessitated the planting of 250 trees on the west side for a windbreak. The trees are now about 40’ tall and protect the house. The house is about one mile off Rt 5, five miles from Burke Mountain and seven miles from Exit 22 on Rt. 91. At the top of the paved (yes that’s how the locals knew my parents were “flatlanders”) 100 yard driveway there is parking for about 10 cars including two indoors under the house.

What makes this house unique

Should power go out, a full-house generator was installed in December 2012.

Great Views / Tons of Beds / Close to Skiing

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, with a large great room including huge dinner table and pool table with large windows looking out to the great views of Burke Mountain. Many beds throughout the house, perfect for multiple families or a large group.

Very helpful owner and very helpful neighbors who look after the house.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've spent a perfect weekend in this beautiful house a few weekends ago! The location, close to the mountain bike trails, makes it great for bike groups visiting the area. The house has everything you need to comfortably accommodate a large group. Thank you for all, we'll see you next spring!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend! Your home was perfect for our group. 3 couples each had their own bedroom and privacy. Comfortable, plenty of room and we had everything we needed. What a spectacular view! Very close to all attractions in Burke.

Thank you for being so easy to work with! We would recommend.

A little bit of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our children and their families spent our vacation in this home on the top of the hill. The views themselves made the rental more than worthwhile. Added to that, a very helpful and cordial homeowner, and comfortable, spacious surroundings...our vacation was everything I had hoped it would be. Evenings around the campfire were an added bonus. Don't pass this property up if you are planning a visit to the NEK!

Awesome in all counts!

  • 5 of 5

Just like the description says - Killer views. But that's not all...the house is great and the location perfect. Had a perfect 5-days. Hiked in the Northeast Kingdom, really enjoyed the biking - road biking and the unbelievable mountain biking trails right in Burke. The house offered plenty of room and the owner was incredibly responsive. Highly recommend.

mountain vista rental home

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable hilltop home with spectacular views of nearby valley and mountains. Bedrooms and bathroom on three levels provide a degree of separation for large groups. During cool weather, lowest level is coolest and top floor is hottest. Excellent kitchen facilities, well stocked for cooking and serving. Bathrooms are spacious and hot water is plentiful. Plenty of closets in the bedrooms. No shoes allowed in the house. Two-car garage and plenty of paved parking outside. Grounds are nicely maintained. Owner is attentive and easy to work with. Several stores within a half-dozen miles. In sum, this is a clean and very enjoyable rental home at a fair price.
