Farmhouse Haven 8 Hill Road, South Hero, VT 05486

Rest, relax, and get away from it all at this three-bedroom South Hero home, a beautifully maintained Vermont farmhouse with a large grassy lawn, a classic front porch and covered back deck, and a lovely location in the Lake Champlain Islands.

This three-level home sits within steps of central South Hero, just a short stroll north of the restaurants and shops on Highway 2. It's also only three miles from White's Beach and the Snow Farm Vineyard & Winery, four miles west of Sand Bar State Park, and five miles south of Grand Isle State Park.

The interior living space retains much of the home's original character, from the rich wood trim to the intricately patterned hardwood floors. On crisp autumn evenings, you can grab a log from the porch for the antique wood stove, or simply curl up in an armchair with the WiFi and your Kindle.

Move into the great room to find a plush sectional sofa and sunlight streaming in through the large picture windows. Bring along a board game to play at the coffee table or settle in for a night in front of the wall-mounted flatscreen cable TV and DVD player.

The full kitchen has been artfully refinished with granite countertops, subway tiles, and plentiful cabinet space, but it still radiates pastoral charm. Use the blender to whip up fresh fruit smoothies each morning, sit down for breakfast in the spacious dining room, and simply load the dishwasher to take care of the cleanup.

When the summer sun is shining over the Lake Champlain Islands, you'll have a covered back deck with a ceiling fan, a gas grill for afternoon barbecues, and a grassy lawn for spirited games of frisbee and tag.

With three bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one half-bath, Farmhouse Haven can accommodate as many as four guests. Head upstairs to find two bedrooms with a queen-size bed apiece, as well as a charming third bedroom with a crib and a rocking chair. The full bathroom offers a clawfoot tub and a glass stall shower.

And whether you choose to spend your days at the beach or on the lake, you'll always come home to a private washer/dryer for your clothes.

Thanks to its tranquil and secluded position in the Lake Champlain Islands, South Hero is an ideal place to escape the pressures of the outside world. This all-American town is surrounded by apple orchards, quiet country roads, and scenic beaches, including White's Beach with its lovely view of the Adirondacks.

Head north for the day to the 226-acre Grand Isle State Park, where you'll find 4,150 feet of Lake Champlain shoreline, a small boat launch, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and a family-friendly nature trail.

Come and experience a quintessential New England summer - reserve your stay at this South Hero home today!

    House is in a great location for travel to Burlington or just enjoying Lake Champlain. We even took a day trip to Quebec via the island main road. Everything was clean and well kept. All of the kitchen utensils etc were available and in good condition. Would definitely stay here again

    This property had all of the amenities including a well appointed kitchen, laundry and a heated bathroom floor which was so nice on the cold days! It was decorated creatively and even had pumpkins on the front porch in preparation for Halloween.

    This is a charming, renovated farmhouse with old world character yet spacious and modern kitchen and bath. Inviting porches front and back. Nicely appointed, love the vintage Elmira stove/range! Hope to return sometime....

    This home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We enjoyed spending time on both the front and back porches. The bathrooms and kitchen have many special touches, with plenty of everything: towels, soap, cookware, dishes, paper products and ambiance! We've rented many homes and this was an immediate favorite.

    The pictures don't do this beautiful home justice! The first thing you notice is the welcoming energy in the home -- whomever decorated and lived in this space has breathed some lovely energy into it. It's a comfortable and inviting space with bold colors and lots of light. The kitchen is perfectly appointed and easy to cook in. All of the furnishings, linens, and kitchen ware is top quality. One of the wonderful highlights of staying here was the backyard. We sat for hours watching the birds and by our third day, we had gotten to know the "regulars" who visit the bird feeders. (Don't feel guilty reading your favorite book for an hour in the claw footed bathtub!)

    Wonderful place! Well equipped and well labeled. The owners did a beautiful job with the restoration, keeping some of the old but incorporating a modern look. The house was heated when we arrived and the walkways were shoveled and salted. We loved staying here!

    This home is so welcoming and full of personality. We had everything we needed including hair dryer, shampoo, soap and conditioner, beach towels, and coffee pot ready to go. They even provided an air mattress for the bedroom with the crib so my son and daughter didn't have to share a bed. The decor is cheerful and inviting. I couldn't get enough time on the back deck and front porch-perfect for reading a book and drinking coffee! South Hero was a great location if you like small town, non-touristy getaways. Finding a good family restaurant was a little challenging but we made it work. This house felt like a home instead of another drab rental unit. My kids loved the stairs to the "loft" area. Some bean bag chairs or rockers in there would be great! Overall we had an amazing stay!!! Vacasa took great, personalized car of us!

    We visited in mid-winter, so didn't get much chance to take advantage of many outdoor activities, but this would be a great location for a fishing or boating trip. It's an easy trip to Burlington, though...and the house itself is immaculate and well maintained. Highly recommended!
