Relax in rustic comfort on the shores of Lake Champlain, where this pet-friendly South Hero vacation rental offers a wrap-around deck, a private dock, and a serene private beach on Keeler Bay.
Both secluded and convenient, this two-bedroom lakefront home is beautifully situated one mile from the peaceful village of South Hero in the Lake Champlain Islands and less than 21 miles from bustling downtown Burlington.
Thoughtfully decorated and immaculately maintained, the Heron Ridge Retreat is an ideal summer destination for couples and families in search of rest, relaxation, and space to enjoy the Vermont outdoors.
The open living room is bright and comfortable, with rustic wood paneling and a wall of windows that face the lake. Enjoy cozy nights in while browsing the wireless Internet, lounging in front of the cable TV, or competing in family board game tournaments.
Whether you're scrambling eggs or searing steaks, the airy full kitchen features plenty of counter space for professionals and novices alike. A bar counter provides breakfast stools for two, while the adjacent dining area has ample space for six.
Step outside the glass doors to find a wrap-around deck with a gas grill and a retractable awning. On the sloping lawn below, there's a picnic table for summer barbecues, a shaded hammock for afternoon naps, and plenty of space for your dog to play fetch (for a small additional fee).
Hoping to spend time on the scenic shores of Lake Champlain? Soak in the sun on the private beach, launch your kayak from the private dock, or roast S'mores in the evenings using the stone fire ring. (Please note that there are no guarantees that the dock will be available to use, as the water level changes seasonally.)
The Heron Ridge Retreat can accommodate as many as six guests. The master bedroom features a quuen bed, the guest bedroom has a futon. There is also one full bathroom with a standalone shower.
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 whether you're a hiker, a cyclist, a swimmer, or a sailor, the Lake Champlain Islands offer nearly 200 miles of scenic shoreline to explore. Rent a kayak or a rowboat at Grand Isle State Park five miles north, or plan an afternoon tasting at Vermont's first winery, the Snow Farm Vineyard, less than four miles south.
Looking to sample the bounty of local ingredients? Don't forget to make a dinner reservation at Hen of the Wood in Burlington only 21 miles away.
