Recent South Hero vacation rental reviews

Charming home with great indoor and outdoor spaces. My family enjoyed a wonderful week in South Hero in this comfortable home.
Kathleen B. | Aug 2022
This was just what we were looking for. It was a lovely quiet break on a busy road trip. We slept 4 in the cottage. The pull out couch was somewhat less comfortable, but our teenagers could handle that! :) The cottage was close enough to Shelbourne and Burlington for sight seeing, but far enough away in a quiet area for some relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks, screened in porch, and the sitting area on the stairs for a view of the sunset. Another bonus was that the TV was set up to use comcast so we could stream from our phones to watch a movie. The owners are right next door. I was able to text them when we had a small issue, and they took care of it right away.

Loved the cottage (very clean & full of essentials) location & views….being on that beautiful lake……place was very nice, with lots windows for views all around & plenty of guests seating . The TV was challenging. Well appointed kitchen & cooking space & private bedroom ( but bed ‘very ‘hard’’ ugghh ) , window a/c unit in LR & fan in bedroom. Lots of fresh air if open windows in nice weather. Steps down to water, but a bit mossy to swim, & difficult to get kayak down the steps. Gas grill was nice ( just full of cobweb’s).

Founded by hundreds of Revolutionary War veterans to honor Ethan and Ira Allen, South Hero was originally part of the single town of Two Heroes, but was reconfigured in 1798. The town has long sustained an all-American feel, with quaint mom-and-pop shops, a school that is also its community center, and miles of verdant, organic farmland. Apples are the main crop, and you'll find orchards throughout the town's charming environs. With only three bridges connecting the four Lake Champlain Island towns to the rest of the state, visitors experience a true getting-away-from-it-all vibe. Choosing the comfort and privacy of our Vermont vacation rentals in South Hero will definitely boost that feeling!

The town of South Hero, VT

South Hero has a small year-round population, and visitors head here to truly escape, so the town doesn't boast dozens of historic sites like other Vermont cities. Still, there's plenty to see. Nothing beats White's Beach on a hot summer day. Situated on West Shore Road, the beach features a volleyball court as well as a swimming section, but non-swimmers will love the views of the Adirondacks and the southern portion of Lake Champlain. Bird House Forest is just moments away from Whites Beach, boasting a plethora of brilliantly colored birdhouses hanging from hardwood trees. (It's a swampy area, so make sure to wear your wellies when you venture forth!) 

Nearby Castle Island is on everyone's must-see list, due to the miniature castles built by Harry Barber in the early 20th century dotting the landscape. Most are in good condition and feature full turrets and battlements. Snow Farm Winery and Vineyard is Vermont's first winery. Since 1992, the Lane family has been crafting choice Pinot Noir and Riesling as well as stellar ice wine. Head here for summer concerts on the lawn. 

Day trips from South Hero

When you stay at one of our South Hero vacation rentals, the entire Lake Champlain Islands region is at your fingertips, boasting 200 miles of gorgeous coastline. Head to North Hero for the North Hero State Park and the historic North Hero House. Grand Isle appeals to hikers and bikers, thanks to Grand Isle State Park. Samuel Champlain's first sight of the new world was of Isle La Motte; today, it's famous for St. Anne's Shrine and fossils galore! Who knows? You might even spy the ever-elusive Champ, the mythic monster said to reside in the lake. 

Don't want to get away from quite everything? Burlington is just 20 minutes from South Hero, so you can hit a play or eat at one of the city's many farm-to-table restaurants.

Whether it's biking or boating or just loafing, our South Hero vacation rentals will make your stay in this gorgeous region a getaway to remember!
