Recent Charlotte vacation rental reviews

We had an excellent time. A perfect place to vacation. We loved the beautiful views of the water and mountains. Garden Island is directly across in plain view to enjoy while seeing the ADK in the distance. Charlotte is a peaceful destination and in close proximity to Burlington with fabulous eatery’s and things to do. We highly recommend! The unit was clean and well maintained.

We had a wonderful time at Charlotte's Lil Haus. The house is adorable, clean, and fabulous location. It has a wonderfully stocked kitchen with everything you could ever need. The bedrooms are sufficient. The location is great, close to Burlington and in a nice area of Vermont. The only drawback is it doesn't have direct access to the lake privately. You have to walk through other yards to get down to the dock. Once you are down there it is gorgeous and the dock is as peaceful as it gets. There is also no outdoor fire pit. It would be nice to have an outdoor firepit area to enjoy the lake and views at night. Other than that, a wonderful home!

This place is absolutely wonderful. It’s rustic, nestled in the woods looking on the water. Don’t expect modernity, but if you want to get away from that and enjoy nature in a beautiful, pristine setting, this is amazing. The people who own/manage the resort are super nice as well, but in no way intrusive. Would definitely go back.

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!
