Recent Charlotte vacation rental reviews

We loved our stay on Garden Island. Its a beautiful small private island with several old homes on it, and a wonderful trail that circles around the island and passes through an old cedar forest. We stayed in the small cottage called Oaks, which is located beneaht a giant old oak. It's called the 'honeymoon cottage' but my husband and I were glad we weren't honeymooners as the tiny bedroom had two single beds. There is a futon in the main room, but one would have to move the kitchen table to make room for the futon. The cabin is very basic, but we enjoyed our stay because the setting is so lovely. Beautiful view out the window looking out over a small harbor.

A cottage with lots of windows , surrounded by a porch , overlooking Converse Bay with sailors furling their sails, then unfurling them in the evening . Swims in cool water and walks along wonderful scenic trails.

We come back every year. The location is perfect. Love the beach and the easy walking access to the public beach. Quiet and gorgeous views from the beach. We appreciated the AC for sleeping in the hot weather.

Where is Charlotte, VT?

Located along the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, Charlotte sits on U.S. Route 7 just 23 miles north of Middlebury, 13 miles due south of Burlington, and directly across the water from Essex, NY (accessible via ferry). The location within the fertile Champlain Valley makes for gorgeous scenery year-round.

Warm Weather Fun in Charlotte, VT

For those seeking some waterborne excitement, Charlotte sits right on Lake Champlain, offering rocky beach access along the shore at places like Charlotte Town Beach (be sure to check out the historic Holmes Creek covered bridge while you're there), as well as public boat launches and marinas including the Charlotte Sailing Center on McNeil Cove (near the dock for the Essex-Charlotte ferry) and the Point Bay Marina overlooking Town Farm Bay to the south.

With more than 600 miles of shoreline, Lake Champlain is an angler's paradise! Head out on the water aboard a boat through Fish N Rigg Charters, and try your hand at landing small- and largemouth bass as well as dozens of other freshwater varieties known to inhabit the deep, cool lake waters. If river and stream fishing is more your speed, the numerous waterways that crisscross the region are always stocked with brook, brown, and rainbow trout.

Landlubbers will find a number of excellent opportunities for hiking and biking throughout the Charlotte area with attention focused on the 63-acre Williams Woods Natural Area and Mount Philo State Park, a 237-acre park that protects the base of the mountain. Be sure to bring your camera for wildlife viewing in both areas with colorful salamanders, newts, and frogs found in the vernal pools of Williams Woods and migrating raptors showing up in the fall on Mount Philo.

And don't miss the Charlotte Village Winery, the Charlotte Berry Farm (where the whole family can pick strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and pumpkins when in season), and the 6-acre Vermont Wildflower Farm featuring display gardens, a country store, and a book and seed shop.

Winter Activities in Charlotte, VT

When the snow starts to fall in Charlotte, residents and visitors alike turn their attention to the various ski areas around the region. Whether it's the family-friendly and easy-to-access Cochran's Ski Area or the mid-sized Bolton Valley Ski Area (both over in Richmond), or Mad River Glen in Fayston, there are plenty of opportunities to hit the powder hard within a few short miles of Charlotte.

And closer to home, grab your sleds and head over to Mount Philo for what is considered to be one of the best sledding hills in all of Vermont! The trails here are also ideal for snowshoeing if you prefer exploring at a slower pace to take in all your surroundings.

Take a well-deserved break from the rat race and escape to Charlotte for a picture perfect New England vacation in one of our well-equipped and convenient rentals along the beautiful shore of Lake Champlain!
