Take in sweeping views of Lake Champlain from the deck of this pet-friendly South Hero home, where a private beach and dock offer the ultimate Vermont summer experience.
Located only one mile from central South Hero, this peaceful lakefront cottage in the Lake Champlain Islands is also only 21 miles from the shops, breweries, and farm-to-table restaurants of downtown Burlington.
Ideal for both couples and small families, the interior of this two-bedroom home is bright, charming, and rustic, with wood paneled walls and windows that frame Keeler Bay. After long days on the water, guests can relax in front of the cable TV, browse the wireless Internet, or stoke the competition with a board game or two.
Hoping to prepare a few meals while you're in town? The large open kitchen offers generous cabinet and counter space, an island with two bar stools, and opens into a spacious dining room for six.
But with so much natural beauty just outside the door, guests will spend much of their vacation flipping burgers on the gas grill, picnicking on the tree-lined lawn, and enjoying shaded naps on the hammock and deck.
Just beyond the yard are a private beach and dock on the shoreline of Lake Champlain, where guests can easily launch their own kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards (please note that there are no guarantees that the dock will be available to use, as the water level changes seasonally). There's also a stone fire ring on the beach for blazing summer bonfires.
This two-bedroom home has sleeping space for six guests, as well as a dog for a small nightly fee. The master has a queen bed, while the guest bedroom features a futon.
There is a finished room in the basement, complete with a full bath. Unattached to the main house, to access this space, you must go outside and around the back of the house. This room has two twin beds and a really nice bathroom, but because it is separate from the rest of the living quarters, it would not be recommended for unchaperoned young children. (There are also two additional inflatable twin bed available.)
And no matter your outdoor interests, the Lake Champlain Islands offer a truly unforgettable Vermont summer experience. With roughly 200 miles of shoreline, the region is beloved by boaters, hikers, and swimmers alike, and its close proximity to Burlington is a treat for foodies and beer lovers.
So why not start a new summer tradition? Reserve this Vermont vacation home today!
*Please note that this home is only available between May and October.
