Perfect Home for a Vermont Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (including two children) spent a week in this well kept and well appointed five bedroom/five bath home. Located on a hill overlooking Lake Champlain, the views throughout the day were beautiful. The sunsets were especially nice. The house is very private and quiet with no others in sight, just farm fields.

The Inside is clean, comfortable and well stocked. In fact the owner provided some wonderful extras, most of which carried a nautical theme. The house is close to several beaches, golf courses, and restaurants, and a trip to Burlington took half-an-hour. Over the past five years we have rented two other homes in the St Albans area and each required a shlep just to get a carton of milk; not so here. Among the three homes we've rented, this is our favorite.

There are negatives like the size of two of the bedrooms but overall our experience was perfect and we would recommend this home to anyone looking for a private well-kept rental.

Great Stay at the Lighthouse

  • 5 of 5

The house is very charming. It's located on the quite road overlooking the Lake. Nice deck, plenty of space. Kitchen has all new appliances, plenty of dishes, pots and pans. The owner kindly provided bottled water, variety of snacks, gourmet instant coffee, tea, complimentary VT vine and chocolates. Little things that make your stay even more pleasant. Nice variety of DVDs and books. All and all we had a great time – no complains!

Wedding in South Hero

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful property for a wedding in South Hero recently. The setting overlooked lake Champlain which was wonderfully scenic and the porch allowed everyone to relax in between events. The accommodations were perfect, the attention to detail was excellent, and the house was laid out in a way that gave everyone their own privacy when they wanted it. We mostly socialized. We recommend this place for a great stay in South Hero wholeheartedly.

Very, very nice vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have had weekly family reunions every fall for the past 20 years and this is the first time I have submitted a review.

We recently stayed at Lighthouse Estates on South Hero Island, Lake Champlain, Vt. I found the accommodations to be far superior to any I have experienced. The interior was nicely furnished, provided lots of amenities and was convenient for the entire family as well as private space when desired. The view was spectacular and the grounds were nicely landscaped and comfortably private. The home was also well stocked with complementary coffee, snacks and toiletries. Furthermore, the owner was extremely courteous and very considerate. In short, our stay at Lighthouse Estates was thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to attend our son's College graduation in Colchester. It was an easy commute. The accommodations were all on one level, and was perfect for our group which included elderly parents. There were separate bedrooms for all in our party and plenty of bathrooms for the group to get ready at the same time. We had the perfect setting to hold a small gathering after the ceremony. The view was fabulous and we made good use of the deck and yard. The house was very clean, and had a lot of extras like Fiji bottled water, snacks and hot beverages. The Wi-Fi was very easy to connect to and we did not have any issues with internet speed. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and will not hesitate to check availability when we are in the area again.

Breath-taking View

  • 4 of 5

We fell in love with this home. It was decorated throughout in a lighthouse theme, even the books and dvd's were ocean themed. We watched some old episodes of the Love Boat, which brought back many memories. It was very clean and just overall felt welcoming. Stepping out onto the porch for the first time was absolutely breath-taking with the view of Lake Champlain and islands. The home and yard are very well taken care of and the owner was extremely helpful and cordial. The only thing I would suggest if you were planning on cooking in, you should make sure you bring any medium/large pots, pans, and bakeware that you may need and any spices you may need. There are dishes, glassware, utensils, and a few other things however we found the kitchen not very functional for main meals/dessert cooking. Overall we had a wonderful week at this lovely home. Thanks to Ilmar for his hospitality and we will definitely keep this house in mind for any future visits to the northern Vermont region, I can't tell you how beautiful and serene it is, you have to see it for yourself. :-)
