About Sharon Fortune

We bought this house when it was a run down dilapidated old farmhouse, it is over a hundred fifty years old. During the last 30+ years we have completely rebuilt the house, adding a barn and maple sugarhouse and most recently a large addition including our vacation rental apartment on the second floor of the new structure. We are retired teachers who raised our children here. Our kids attended the Elmore One Room School, the only one room school remaining today in Vermont! Brent works the land cutting hay, producing maple syrup, and growing vegetables, berries and flowers. We raise chickens and have a few beef cattle. We love our farmstead in quiet, beautiful Lake Elmore!

Sharon Fortune purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Sharon Fortune chose Stowe Area

The house was originally purchased with a small amount of land, then subsequently we bought the remaining 34+ acres which surround our home. We are on a quiet, dead end town road which affords beautiful views and privacy, yet we are very close to Elmore village, the state park and lake.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of our farmstead is so beautiful, with meadow, mountain and lake views. Every season affords its own beauty. The views from the deck in the apartment are breathtaking. Our location is ideal as we are close to Stowe and Montpelier and only an hour from Burlington.

Most beautiful place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend and it was the most amazing experience. The views are spectacular, in fact there was so beautiful that we didn't want to leave to do other activities. You have a beautiful view on the lake. It is located steps from Elmore Lake beach, steps from Elmore State Park, about 20 minutes from Stowe. There are some beautiful hikes you can do in Elmore, no need to take the car to get to the park.

There is a general store very close by (10 min walk) with everything you need included home made pastry.

The house is beautiful, it has everything you need, very clean, most beautiful decoration, furniture, amenities. Everything is very high quality. Very good internet, cable tv ( we were able to watch Euro 2016 games).It can fit 5 people.

Sharon and Brent are very very nice and very educated people. It was a pleasure to speak with them.

Beautiful Property, Tremendous Value

  • 5 of 5

The Fortunes are wonderful hosts, and their property is beautiful with views of the lake and farm. Great location if you're visiting Stowe, Hyde Park, Morrisville, and of course, Lake Elmore. The apartment has everything you need and is incredibly clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for hosting us!

Lovely, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 lovely days in Brent and Sharon's apartment in Lake Elmore. The property is exceptionally comfortable and well-appointed and the views from the living room window are gorgeous! All the appliances are modern, the beds are comfortable and the apartment was spotlessly clean. Brent and Sharon were lovely hosts, telling us about the local area and alerting us to the wildlife we were likely to see - deer came right underneath our window several times and we loved watching the resident hummingbird at its feeder! They gave us a great welcome, leaving us some lovely home produced goodies - much appreciated. Vermont is a beautiful state and there is plenty to see and do within easy reach of Lake Elmore. We enjoyed trips to Burlington, the fabulous Shelburne Museum, Woodstock, Montpelier and Stowe. We also enjoyed sampling some of the local delicacies - Vermont cheddar cheese, cider, maple syrup and (of course!) Ben and Jerry's ice-cream. Would love to visit Vermont again.

Idyllic apartment with a view of Elmore Lake from the balcony. Brent and Sharon have thought of everything in this apartment. It is comfortable (beds are comfortable), well equipped, clean, peaceful - it was ideal for the 3 of us, whose main goal was to hike Mount Mansfield. We also visited Shelburne Museum and at least one of us went for a swim in Lake Elmore and so a variety of things to do. We found good interesting food in Morrisville - the Bees Knees and Rogue Artisan Cafe.

Sharon and Brent were very helpful and provided good directions to their property.

We highly recommend a stay here.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful farm/apartment! It's a new apartment - very clean and built by the homeowners! Brent does beautiful work with handmade wood touches throughout the apartment as well. Their farm is equally as beautiful and there are cows, chickens, gardens, apple trees, etc! It was nice just walking the grounds which the hosts generously offered to us! Can't say enough great things about this place and our stay! My friend and I would love to make this an annual trip now:)!!
